Bond was abroad, and though Q tended to stay in his ear 24/7, he did, eventually, need sleep. He'd dragged himself home, curled up on the bed between the cats, and let sleep take him. It was a lack of noise that woke him though- He always slept with the news on when Bond was away, and the seemingly sudden silence had been jarring.

The flat was pitch black, and the cats- Where were the cats? Blindly, he made his way to the window- Where was the window?

His eyes began to adjust to the dark, and while that was definitely his and Bond's bed, this was not their flat. ...It was more like a cement box. There was a heavy metal door, and on the ground he could see what looked like a man's body. Stepping closer, he could see he was dressed in a full suit and that his hands were bound. It started to move, as though waking from an unexpected nap, and as it sat up Q could see just enough in the dark to know it was no threat.

"Oh my god, Bond," the young quartermaster gasped.

Bond groaned as he sat up. His eyes adjusted to the dark quickly and he looked around calmly to ascertain the situation. To the door, then the walls, and finally to Q.

"What's going on, Q?" he asked. "I was outside Paris and...I don't remember. How are you here? What is this?"

Bond had to think very hard.

"I was in Versailles, following a contact to make sure he wasn't tailed to our meet. He'd stopped by the palace...I got out of the car. After that, I have no idea. And now I'm here," he said, straining to recall memories that would not come.

Once untied, Bond got to his feet and straightened his suit. He was surprised to hear Q hadn't been briefed at all. That wasn't unusual, really. But it seemed Q knew what was going on even if he hadn't been told.

"I was following a known arms dealer supplying weapons to militants in the south of France. He'd made contact with a Versailles banker, who had, in turn, contacted Interpol. Six sent me to meet with him in hopes of bringing the dealer in before he could broker a deal to get his hands on a few Soviet era nuclear weapons. The banker was apparently a known contact of Le Chiffre. I was to proceed with caution, license to kill revoked for this mission."

"I'd be inclined to agree," he said. He went to the door to examine it, finding it locked. The water coming in beneath it was troubling.

"We need to get out of here," he said as he felt around the edges of the door to see if he could find a simple solution. He wasn't so lucky.

Bond joined him and on the opposite side of the bed he took hold of it to haul it out of the way.

"Why on earth would anyone replicate our bed," he wondered aloud.

"Wherever it goes, it has to be better than in here," Bond said. "I'll go first."

"I'm almost positive it is a trap," he replied, but struck out anyway, wriggling into the vent to crawl along the ductwork.

Bond chuckled at Q's words. He kept moving, noting there was nothing branching off the duct. As he moved on he could see the duct opened up a bit but was blocked by a grate. The air smelled fresh, though, as it came through.

"I think it's a way out," he said.

"It's a way out of the duct," Bond replied. He got to the grate and forced it open. It fell away and there was no sound at all of it falling. He inched forward and peered through the opening.

"Alright...this may be a problem," he said as he looked down what was easily a two story drop.

"A very long drop," Bond replied. "Let's go back and get the bedding. We can fashion a rope to get down."

Bond slithered backward out the vent and brushed himself off.

"Well there's got to be a way to get it out of here," he said, moving to search the walls and examining the ceiling carefully.

Bond could only think of one man who might toy with him like this. One man who could orchestrate such a complex waste of time.

Oberhauser.

"I don't have time for this," he huffed. "I don't enjoy being toyed with."

"Someone knows me a little too well," he grumbled. He was like a rat in a cage, the way he felt along the walls, inspecting every inch. Every minute he was trapped was wearing on him. He hated that Q was in danger...and he hated the thought that this could be something more than it seemed.
