Chapter Six

Half an hour after she’d left Michael’s quarters, still well before dawn, Nikita returned. This time it was a little less awkward between them. At this point, Nikita was pleased with any improvement, no matter how minute.

“I was granted a meeting at Center,” Nikita stated, barely stepping through the threshold, once Michael had allowed her in.

“When?” Michael asked, although her edginess coupled with her unwillingness to come further inside was answer enough.

“Now,” Nikita confirmed Michael’s suspicion.

“Are you ready?” Michael caressed her cheek, setting aside his earlier resentment and communing his support.

“Yes,” Nikita stated determinedly, closing her eyes briefly, leaning in to the touch momentarily before reluctantly pulling back.

“I have to go,” Nikita sighed, his gesture comforting and strengthening her. “I’m leaving Devon and Alex at the door.” She referred to the two bodyguards who’d helped her bring Michael in.

“What about you?” Michael knew that she was leaving the two behind not to keep him confined but rather to protect him if the need arose.

“I’ll take two others,” Nikita referred to another of her two-man team personal bodyguards. She had three teams of two, 12 hour shifts each, the extra team on call in case of an emergency. “It’s better no one else knows you’re here until it’s official,” Again she worried about his safety.

“You’ll be fine,” Michael reassured her, appreciating her concern even though he could take care of himself better than anyone else could.

“I know,” Nikita stated confidently. “I have to be.” She turned and with final instructions to the guards left for Center, striding purposely through a quiet Section.

They both knew what was at stake if Nikita failed to convince Center that the Agency needed Michael.

Between his knowledge of Section and Nikita’s well-known personal attachment to him, Michael was a liability on the outside. Now that he was back in, regardless of how voluntary the return, they would not let him go again.

No, Nikita reminded herself again on the way to Center, Failure is not an option.
