Assistant Director Skinner sighed. In front of him sat two of his best agents, possibly two of the best agents in the entire Bureau. Two of the best agents who had just fed him the most incredible story. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing.
“Agents, I can’t believe what I’m hearing.”
Agent Fox Mulder, who had slumped back in his chair after he’d finished debriefing Skinner, suddenly sat up. “Sir, everything that Agent Scully and I have just shared with you is true. And we have proof!”
Skinner turned his attention to Mulder’s partner who, aside from the occasional interjection, had largely stayed silent during their meeting. “Agent Scully, is what Agent Mulder saying true? Do you actually have proof of all this?”
It was Scully’s turn to sigh. “Sir, I am a medical doctor, I am trained to examine data and reach the most logical conclusions. Based on the evidence that Agent Mulder and I have found, it is my professional opinion that everything we have just shared is accurate.”
Skinner leaned back in his chair, glancing between the two agents. “So you’re telling me that you’ve uncovered a secret conspiracy to fabricate the review scores of videogames?”
“Video games, sir.”
“Sorry, video games. You’re telling me that somewhere, there’s a group of people who have launched a carefully coordinated campaign to plant inflated review scores across the Internet, for the purpose of what, exactly?”
Scully glanced at Mulder before speaking, “We’re not exactly sure yet what the purpose is, sir.”
“It’s possible this is related to the African bee that attacked Agent Scully last year.” Mulder added.
“Right, the bee. How could I forget?” Skinner muttered.
