The Trillion Dollar Blunder: Part 3

This is a continuation of a story I started awhile back.  You should start with part 1, and then read part 2 before reading this one.  As I said on part 1 and two, I’m not sure what this will lead to.  It’s raw, it’s unedited and it’s just for fun!

“Are you sure that you want to do that?  I’m more than willing, but doing it will have far reaching problems that I’m not sure you’ve thought about,” Juan said.

“Yeah I need you to do it.  Just take a look at my account and you’ll see why.”

I heard Juan typing in the background.

“Holy Shit,” He gasped on the phone.

“Yeah. Can you delete it?”

“What did you do?  That’s like a bill…a trillion fucking dollars?”

“Honestly I’m not sure right now, but it’s an opportunity that I’m going to exploit. Can you delete it?”

“Yeah.  Give me a few minutes and I’ll have it deleted.”

“I appreciate it Juan.  Once I figure out what’s going on, I’ll be in touch.”

Tara sat at her desk and leaned back in here chair.  A already horrible week had only gotten worse with her team losing a trillion dollars meant to help bail Spain out of their economic crisis.  But with the money just disappearing she wasn’t sure what she could do.  It was a major screw up that had far reaching consequences that she wasn’t sure she fully understood.

“Hey,” a voice whispered at her.

It was Shaun one of her computer people.

“Hey Shaun,” She said.

“What are we going to do?  I mean we’ve got to find this, but to have the money just disappear like that is odd. Someone knows what they are doing?”

“I know,” Sighed Tara.

“Well lets see what we have and start there,” Shaun said.

Tara stood up and looked over the cubicle, to see Shauns computer and him typing away at the keyboard.

“Hummm,” Shaun says after a few minutes.

“What?” Tara asks.

“Well the money reached Spain.  A bank in Madrid.”
