Thanks for reading ^!^

Michael sat in his office. So much data entry work had piled up during his last absence. The keyboard clicked continuously as his fingers flew in an effort to catch up.

Down time, that was what he needed. Down time with Nikita. Not sure that would be a reality, he kept his thoughts on the straight and narrow. The sooner he finished, the sooner he could check out.

A beep from his comm unit caused a pause in his typing. He pressed a button.

"Yes?"

"Michael, I need you in my office." Operations voice didn't seem overly impatient.

"In a few minutes."

"Fine."

Michael logged off and sat staring at the four grey walls, breathing and refocusing. He had been pressed to "take sides", reconfirm his loyalty to Section, divorce himself from his colleagues.

He wished he could be the "old" Michael, but that person was gone forever. Falling in love with Nikita, everything he had gone through since her arrival in Section, being separated from Adam and Elena... his heart had been revived, shattered, wrung out, left to heal itself...

He had not been able to heal himself. Only love could do that. He knew it, tried to deny it, only to return to it again and again.

He rose and walked to the Perch. Madeline and Operations seemed especially relaxed, almost happy. Michael's instincts went on alert. He could feel the hair stand up on his head. But he simply stood with his hands clasped in front of his body, waiting.

They began to talk, but he stopped listening after "... we'll be releasing Nikita unconditionally from Section One..."

Michael's spirits began to lift. Nikita would be free! He would be able to see her outside the Section. They would celebrate her freedom together, spend all his downtime together...

I'm becoming more and more like her every day."

Operations' voice faded back in. "...You're to have no further contact with her, either now or in the future..."
