Chapter Twenty Two


Nikita had many virtues, including doggedness. Of course, sometimes that same willfulness got her into trouble. Maturity and experience only went so far.

Later, she decided that she should have seen this conversation coming. At the time, she had been ill-prepared, something she subsequently guessed Michael had counted on.

“Good morning,” An already seated Nikita greeted Michael with a small smile as he walked into the remodeled ‘breakfast room’ Paul and Madeline had shared for so many years.

Nikita and Quinn had rarely shared their morning meal here, another testament to the incompleteness of that professional relationship. Conversely, this was already the fifth straight morning she and Michael had dined together. It was a good indicator of the progress of their relationship, both professional and personal, or so she thought.

“Good morning,” Michael returned rather formally as he sat down, his tone setting off a flurry of nervous butterflies in Nikita’s stomach.

“Everything all right?” Nikita eventually asked.

“Of course,” Michael ignored the breakfast selections in front of him.

Mentally preparing herself as Michael’s typical Section speak, now back with a vengeance after so many years without use, did nothing to ally her apprehensiveness, Forging ahead, Nikita asked, “Is there something you’d care to discuss?”

“I found an anomaly in reviewing current Section personnel.”

“Yes?” Nikita prodded.

“My cancelation two years ago.”

“What do you mean?” Nikita was confused by the question. Surely he had understood the chain of events that had surrounded the purge and her part in the aftermath.

“Who ordered my cancelation? Jones?” Michael paused, purposely using Nikita’s late father’s surname in an effort to keep the more personal aspects out of it, at least for the time being. “Or you?”
