Chapter Nineteen


Two hours later, Michael and Walter returned from their jaunt outside. By the time they cleared Section’s entrance, ideas had cemented into tangible designs.

The requested three hours up, Michael left Walter at his usual post and made his way towards his current quarters. As he passed systems, Michael was stopped by Devon, head of Nikita’s bodyguard detail.

“Yes?” Michael inquired politely, with no ill will apparent.

“I’m sorry…” Devon began, intent on apologizing for his actions even though he had merely been following his commander’s instructions.

“It’s not necessary,” Michael interrupted. “You were under orders.”

“Still,” Devon paused, wanting to clear the air as he would now be ultimately responsible for Michael’s safety as well. “I hope this will not affect our future working relationship.” He stated as diplomatically as possible.

“It won’t,” Michael confirmed, alleviating the other man’s concern. After all, he knew all about following orders.

“As far as security detail, “Devon broached the other reason for which he sought out Michael during his downtime. “Are there any personnel you’d prefer?” Devon had found that things run smoother if those being guarded had a good rapport with those doing the guarding. He had no doubt Michael would choose operatives with the right capabilities and sufficient skills.

“Configuration?” Michael asked.

“Same as Nikita’s,” Devon answered. “Three teams of two.”

“Mentz, Snow and Donoghue for primaries.” Michael had already ascertained from Walter that he would be glad to spare ‘Darwin’ Donoghue. It was nice to have company in Munitions, but Walter could still handle the job solo. Darwin wouldn’t allow anything to happen to Michael and he was ready for the responsibility. “I’ll leave their partners up to you.”

“Sounds good,” Devon was familiar with all three but somewhat surprised at Darwin’s inclusion. “I’ll reinforce Donoghue personally.” Even though he trusted Michael’s judgment he would tutor the young operative until he was sure Darwin was suitable. That was Devon’s job.

“All right,” Michael agreed. In Devon’s position he would do the same.

“Starting in twelve hours?” Devon suggested.

“Fine,” Michael hadn’t planned on leaving Section any sooner.

Michael left Devon to take care of the details and once more headed for his quarters – and Nikita.
