Chapter Twenty Nine


As planned, Michael and Nikita left Section for their joint downtime. Whispers and rumors flew as operatives watched them leave together.

Sharing a ride in Nikita’s limousine, operated by her regular driver, they were followed in an SUV by their preferred personal guards – Devon and Alex for Nikita, Darwin and Claire for Michael.

As both knew their unity was just an illusion, they planned their downtime accordingly. They would separate, each having plans for the afternoon ahead.

Arriving at the predetermined location, a quiet corner of a busy public parking lot, they were met by Jasmine who was standing next to another armored state-of-the-art limousine.

Michael had intended to send Darwin and Claire with Jasmine. He’d drive to his destination alone in the SUV while the other three kept up the charade by driving around the limousine and staying away from Section. However, the former recruits, now the leaders’ most trusted operatives had other plans.

Once Nikita and her guards drove off, Michael prepared to embark on his own side mission, determined to go alone. Nikita was absolutely sure of her two guards, but trust was still very much an anathema to Michael. It was given even more reluctantly than his affection.

“Sir,” Darwin addressed Michael before he could climb into the SUV.

“Yes?” Michael turned to him guessing at his intentions and prepared to wave him off. Expressionless, but inwardly amused and pleased at their show of solidarity, Michael saw Claire and Jasmine flank the younger man, showing their accord with what he was about to say.

“We think you’re making a mistake.” Darwin, well versed in Section speak, pleaded their case.

“Why?” Michael asked.

“Your activities won’t be reported,” The young operatives understood Michael’s motivation. “To any one.” Their greater loyalty to him personally, rather than Section as a whole, was unmistakable.

With the briefest of hesitations, Michael made his decision, “All right.” He nodded, changing direction to sit in the idling limousine, hoping he would not regret his choice to trust the three in the difficult days and weeks ahead.

Claire climbed into the driver’s seat of the SUV and parked it in an empty spot then got in to the front passenger seat of the limo next to Jasmine who’d serve as driver while Darwin sat with Michael in the back.
