Viet-Pacifican Relations

Recommended Posts

After successful preliminary negotiations regarding a potential formal discussion in Hanoi regarding relations between Vietnam and Greater Pacifica, a formal invitation was extended to Pacifica, the airport was readied for arrival, and the Foreign Minister prepared himself for the visit. He had trouble with the phrase 'Greater Pacifica' for some reason that no one could figure out. He spoke English perfectly, albeit with a small Vietnamese accent, but for some reason he simply could not say Greater Pacifica without sounding like a complete hick.

He awaited the Pacifican representative.

Thomas had received the invitation and had decided to send one of the newer diplomats, an obscure name he had forgotten already, nonetheless he wanted to give him some experience. Plane tickets, orders, and briefings on the internal situation in Vietnam had been forwarded to the diplomats wellington apartment, Devereaux glancing at his watch, estimated that the plane was taking off at that moment.

The diplomat had never arrived at the airport, in fact he had never received the orders and was entirely oblivious to the fact that he had been given an assignment. Michael had diverted the courier with the plane tickets to another individual waiting on tickets for his paid vacation, and the courier with the orders to his own penthouse. As the courier arrived Michael already dressed in a suit, stepped out of his apartment. Taking the briefcase his cufflinks, which he was confident exceeded in value the annual earnings of the courier, reflected the hard halogen lamps that lit the hallway. The Prince was not much of a public figure, but he could tell the other gentleman faintly recognized him, perhaps from the cover of a magazine, or in the hallways of the General Directory, a periodic destination of his. Atrevier tipped him and left for the lift at the end of the hallway.

Outside the apartment building a black luxury sedan from the corporate motor pools of one of his associates was waiting to pick him up. The courteous chauffeur opened the door to the back letting him in, already with instructions of where to take him. Opening the brief case Michael first removed the folder containing the diplomat’s orders. Letting his eyes sweep the page he committed it to memory in a matter of moments, allowing other parts of his brain to review and comprehend it as he moved onto the briefing of vietnam’s internal situation. He finished the final brief book as the car pulled up to his private plane. Stepping out of the car he met the two Seraphim that were to be his guard. They saluted him as he passed, climbing the small set of stairs to the cabin of the small international jet.

He set the briefcase on one of the glass coffee tables as he lowered himself into the cushioned camel leather seating. After a moment the pilot left the cockpit. “Welcome back your Highness, where are we going today?” He asked Michael. Recalling from the back of his mind.

“Hanoi, Vietnam. The international airport should be expecting us.” The captain nodded returning to the cockpit to make final preparations and file his flight plan. As the plane taxied out Michael sensed a sort of satisfaction, he smiled to himself as he realized the degree to which he had subverted his grandfather. Ultimately he would appreciate what he had done, and what he would do in Vietnam that day.

Michael stood up from his chair with an outwardly pleased but overall neutral smile on his face. The subtle modifications he had made the the a approved treaty provided for free trade, and a defensive obligation. By the time he found out the Magistrate would have to accept the modifications. Once he received the signature of the other leader two copies of the treaty were handed off to a clerk for publishing. The two of them exited the room before being met with a flurry of photographers and reporters. Turning Michael offered his hand and the two shook giving the iconic shot to the papers.
