Chapter Thirteen


Now that she’d informed the only two people that she felt warranted the personal notification that Michael was back, albeit alone, Nikita hurried to Michael’s quarters. Her personal guards were still at the door. Before going in, Nikita had a short talk with the two men.

“Has any one been down here?” Nikita asked Devon, the most senior member of her bodyguard crew.

“Yes, just before you returned to Section.” Devon supplied, “Walter.”

“And?” Nikita prompted.

“He took one look at us and backtracked. If it had been anyone else we’d have detained them.” Devon knew that because of his boss’s affection for and trust in the weapons wizard she wouldn’t have wanted him sanctioned for his actions.

“Good,” Nikita conveyed her approval. “Any resistance?”

“No, no one else made it to this level.” Devon confirmed. He’d talked to the other two bodyguards left behind in Section just after Walter had made his appearance. “The other level five operatives did not get past Derek and Milo.”

The whole floor was for level five operatives only. In addition to their quarters it contained facilities available in other parts of Section but with more privacy. Even level five operatives knew not to question Nikita’s personal bodyguard detail so they had made do elsewhere temporarily. Besides, the quantity (or quality) of level five operatives was not what it used to be and traffic on this floor was lighter than in past years.

“Walter somehow found a way around the system,” Alex added, feeling the need to defend his colleagues.

“He usually does,” Nikita smiled, communicating she wouldn’t hold Walter’s trespassing against them. “You can go now, the word is out. Take the next twelve hours off, all six of you.”

“Are you sure, ma’am?” Devon asked.

“Yes, I’ll be in Section.” Nikita confirmed. There was a lot of work to be done and a very short time to do it in.

“We’ll be ready when you need us,” Her bodyguards’ loyalty was unwavering.

“I know.” Nikita told him. She watched them walk away then braced herself for she wasn’t sure what kind of reception she was about to get from Michael.
