                                                          Her eyes narrowed as she challenged her. His tone and look becoming much similar to hers. There was a competitive air that surrounded both of them but mostly there was a seductive aura that pulsated off of both of them fiercely. A feeling of domination and a small fight for the Alpha happening between the connection of their eyes. Liara knew that this man wasn't going to bend to her will as easily as others, it was going to be a challenge and one that she was ready to accept - and win.

                                                          " Well then...I guess I'm going to have to make you a believer. " she whispered seductively, her lips barely brushing against his skin.

                                                          ---

                                                          The door to his loft was pushed open roughly as Liara had forced Drake into it after he unlocked it. Kissing him fiercly she pushed him in the direction of the bedroom. Knowing the layout of the loft considering she was the one who had purchased it for him when they first moved their business to the city after his father's death, she didn't need any help in direction .

                                                          After reaching the bedroom Liara proceeded to push him onto the bed pulling at his clothing and pinning him down at the same time. Rough but gentle, Liara knew what she was getting herself into. Convincing herself that it was for the better of her mission and it would help her in the long run, she may have been lying if she said she didn't want it - even a little.

                                                          Either way, she was definitely going to make him a believer. Although proper and very business.. Liara's disposition and skill in the bedroom were very different. And definitely not a bad different.

                                                          ---

                                                          Slowly, chocolate brown eyes opened as Liara awoke from her slumber. Immeadiately the memories of the night before flooded into her mind as she turned over expecting to see Drake laying there asleep but there was nobody there. Instead, there was a single rose and a note. Lifting herself up she read the note and smirked. It said for her to take the day off and that he would be in touch. Also that he had her car brought to the building and it was waiting downstairs in the garage. Sighing lightly she brought the rose to her nose and smelled it enjoying its scent.

                                                          Removing the satin sheets to reveal her very naked body she walked across the ground picking up her various items of clothing that had found their way to his bedroom floor. After putting on her clothing and gathering her things she made her way to the garage and soon her car.

                                                          It was a rather pleasant drive to the small town in which she lived in. After arriving home she turned off her car and slowly approached the front door. Opening it slowly she crept in as quietly as she could as she didn't want to wake up her brother and be attacked with a thousand questions. Nearing the stairs she stopped at the sound of a voice.

                                                          " Late night?" she heard the familiar voice of her brother.

                                                          Peering around the corner she saw him standing at the entranceway of the kitchen with his eyebrows raised and a smirk on his face. " Working late huh ?' he said again as he shoved a mouth full of cereal in his mouth. Liara opened her mouth to speak but was stopped when Will raised his hand. " I'm just teasing you." he said through a mouth full of minnie wheats.

                                                          Liara smiled as she sighed lightly. " Sorry. I didn't mean to come home at this time it was really...unexpected." she said truthfully. Her eyes shifted to the hallway table as she saw a womans sweater that she didn't recognize as hers. Pointing to it curiously she looked to her brother.

                                                          " It's Ellie's. She left it here last night. I guess she'll probably come by some time today to get it ." he said.

                                                          " Oh.. well tell her I said hi and thanks again." Liara spoke heading up the stairs.

                                                          " What..where are you going? You just got home." he called to her.

                                                          " I have things to do. " she called down as she was getting ready to have a shower.

                                                          Will sighed as he didn't question her any more and went to watch television.

                                                          Standing in the shower Liara couldn't help but think about the night before. Running her fingers through her hair she remembered back to the feeling of his fingers through her hair..and on her skin. A small smile made its way to her face.

                                          Elizabeth robotically awoke a few minutes before her alarm went off, and she slipped out of bed soundlessly, her light frame gracefully skipping over to her the thing, turning it off so it wouldn’t wake Zack up. His was set for another hour after her own and she always felt bad when she woke him up earlier than he needed to be. Quietly she showered and got ready for her day, dressing semi-casually. Zack awoke before she left, and she hugged him tightly, sealed with a kiss, before she left to her overly comfortable building she called a workplace.

                                          Her routine seemed almost too set in stone. She said the same thing to the same people at the same time, like she did every other day. She looked through her messages, called a few people, shuffled around papers, and finally sat down with her first patient. The two hours were long and she didn’t kae too much progress at all. The middle-aged male was extremely stubborn and she had to look down at her notepad most of the session; if she looked at him to long he’d fidget and stop talking completely. Finally it was over and the man left. Once the door shut she let her head fall with a –bang- onto her desk. It was a stupid way, but her way of how she relieved the stress from frustrating patients. She couldn’t well express that frustration in any other way, though, which was probably the hardest part of her job.

                                          The younger woman slowly made her way outside her office doors to look for the next file-folder of her client, not finding one. Her eyebrows scrunched in the middle as she looked to the receptionist. ”Looks like she’s a no-show,” the pudgy lady said. Sighing lightly, she looked around, not sure what to do with herself. Ellie never had “free-time” in this job before.

                                          ”Who else is in my books?” she asked after a moment.

                                          The receptionist shuffled through some papers, pulling the binder that showed appointments. ”Looks like you’re free for the rest of the day,” the woman answered. Finally she looked up to catch eyes with Ellie. ”Shall I put you on-call, Dr. Nightingale?”

                                          Ellie bit her lower lip lightly in contemplation. ”Ah… no. I’m going to take the rest of the day off. Wedding planning,” she smiled, absentmindedly spinning her engagement ring. She was lying, yes, but her boss would let her go easier over something like that as opposed to “I don’t want to work today.”

                                          It didn’t take long for her to be all packed up after her boss had given her the go-ahead. She was out the door and in her car quickly, as so her boss wouldn’t change his mind. As she was driving she didn’t really want to go home, since no one would be there. She’d done grocery shopping and the laundry—she’d caught up on all her chores. Aimless, her mind remembered an un-cashed check, so she drove to the bank. While she was standing in line she heard the people behind her gossiping.

                                          ”So I heard that Will kid is back—he was such a pain in the a** back in the day!”

                                          ”And I heard he ran off to the army… he’s mind is probably all ******** up, being over in the war and all.”

                                          ”Yea, I just hope that he doesn’t snap and shoot us all!”

                                          Furiously Elizabeth turned at shouted at them, ”You know nothing about Will! So shut-up your gossiping mouths unless you want a fat-lip.” The quiet atmosphere of the bank was broken by her outburst, and after she finished it was even quieter, eyes on her. Her nostrils were flared as her hands were balled in clenched fists.

                                          It only took a moment before the security guard was at her side. ”Ma’am, I’m going to have to ask you to leave,” he urged gently. All eyes were still on her as she was escorted out of the tiny branch.

                                          Her infuriation at the stupidity of the town members faded as she drove. Mind thinking about Will, she remembered she’d left the sweater she wore last night at Liara’s. Really she didn’t want to bug Will, they were grownups now and he was probably still adjusting, he didn’t need her hovering over him. But she didn’t have anything else to do, so she might as well; she could dismiss herself easily enough. It didn’t take too long for her to get there, parking out by the curb. Walking up to the door, she hesitated, turning to go back, not wanting to bug him. But she was being silly; they were adults, he’d understand. So she turned back and knocked on the door quickly, before she could wimp out again.

Longing to rock you... Out of these arms. And when the sun has brought a bright morning... And my love he rocks me safe in his arms... Im happy that youre gone, my little longing... For a seed sown out of season will only do us harm...

                                                      Laying on the couch, Will flipped through the channels and as usual there was nothing interesting to watch. He had already done his morning routine of working out. It was why he was already awake when his sister came home from what appeared to be a long night. Will could only guess what she had been doing the previous night. He didn't question her for her knew it truly wasn't his business and after all, she was his older sister and it was her house so she could do as she pleased. Even so, she had the look of a teenage girl who had just got caught by their father sneaking out.

                                                      It wasn't long before the television bored him enough that it put him right to sleep. Which wasn't unusual considering he never really slept properly so he was tired a lot. Even so, Will never liked sleeping because with sleep came his dreams and those he hated the most.




                                                      It seemed to be taking forever for the bomb to count down. Still the noise around him had been cancelled out as all he could hear was his breathing his heartbeat and the godforsaken beeping of the bomb that was strapped to the little girl.

                                                      Will stared at her as she stared back with her hand outstretched to him. He wanted to reach out for her, to grab her and save her from the explosion. Though he knew there could have been no way, there was less than three seconds until it exploded and killed everyone, including him.

                                                      Will then offered her a small smile as he reached out his hand and she smiled back, accepting death as he did.

                                                      It was then that he felt something grab him and he looked up shocked to see fellow soldiers clinging to him and dragging him to the exit. Will looked back to the girl as he reached out his hand, fighting his allies so he could get back to her.

                                                      0.

                                                      The bomb exploded and WIll watched as the little girl, as well as the building went with the bomb. He and his allies were already at the exit that the blast tossed them from the building causing them to roll across the sandy ground as burning pieces of debris showered down around them.

                                                      " Noooo ! "


                                                      -

                                                      Will awoke with a start clutching a pillow to his chest as he realized that he had been screaming through his dreams. Breathing heavy sweat dotted his forehead as his skin was somewhat pale. Fighting to catch his breath he looked down at his hands as they were shaking slightly.

                                                      Hearing the sound of a floorboard creek Will looked to his side and his face fell as he saw her standing there.

                                                      " Ellie.. " he said almost strained.

                                                      There was no way she didn't hear him screaming bloody murder in his sleep. The look on her face said it all.




                                                      ooc: i'm just going to assume she heard him screaming and went in ?

                                          The brunette turned in circles as she waited for a response. Like the last night, after a few moments she turned to leave, but then screaming caught her ear. Before her mind could comprehend what was going on her hand was on the door, throwing it wide as she rushed in. She slowed herself as she got towards the living room, fearing that if it was a robber or something she didn’t want to barge in. When her eyes caught site of only one figure she dismissed that idea completely, walking over hesitantly.

                                          Her face was twisted and contorted in a pain she couldn’t properly express as her mind worked overtime. PTSD… her mind faintly echoed. When her eyes caught his own her expression softened. She wasn’t sure how to approach this; as a professional or as a friend. They were two very different methods indeed. Slowly she went near him, lowered herself to the couch next his worn figure.

                                          Her hand went out to him, to sroke his cheek, but she stopped herself, hand hovering a moment before dropping back down into her lap. Ellie looked at him with utter concern, eyes questioning.

                                          ”Will… why—why didn’t you tell me?” she asked in a whisper.

                                          Her actions were so reserved because she had only dealt with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on older retired soldiers; Vietnam, Korea… older Afghan ones. Never one directly out of the situation, she was unsure of how to proceed. Her mind had already made a list of things for her to help him, since she had already gotten the gist that his case was he having nightmares. The list wasn’t necessarily long, or difficult.


                                          • Practicing relaxation methods before sleeping, such as deep breathing or taking a warm bath
                                          • Writing brief descriptions of your nightmares in a log or journal (during the day – not before bed)
                                          • Rewriting the description of the nightmare, but changing details throughout
                                          • Avoiding exercise, strenuous activity, and planning the next day’s activities just before bed
                                          • Focus on what’s real after you awake from a nightmare by touching and describing real objects around you
                                          • Take slow, deep breaths to help you calm down the physical sensations of being on edge
                                          • Remind yourself that the nightmare wasn’t real
                                          • Stretch your arms and legs, gently roll your head side to side, or squeeze and release your fist
                                          • Try to acknowledge and then let go of negative thoughts and feelings like, “I’ll never get back to sleep,” or “I’m losing my mind”
                                          • Distract and ground yourself by thinking through the steps of simple, everyday activities or counting mundane objects.


                                          Right after she calmed herself enough to think through this, she grabbed his hands, holding them in her own, gently massaging them, feeling the trembles through them. ”It’s all ok, it wasn’t real, alright? You’re fine, I’m here with you…” her voice was still not much above a whisper. She almost sounded silly, but there was nothing silly about the situation at all. Ellie offered him a small smile, trying to reassure and comfort him.


                                                    ████xxx████xxx████xxx████xxx████xxx████xxx████xxx████xxx████xxx

                                                      WIll couldn't believe that she had heard him. He felt embarrassed and mad. At who, he didn't know. Partially himself, but he knew it would be stupid for him to be mad at himself for having dreams. No, but he could be mad at himself for what he failed to do - for what caused the dreams. Sitting there he didn't say anything, he just stared at her as he could see the look of shock in her eyes. Even Liara didn't know about his nightmares. And he had planned on keeping it that way - planned on keeping it from everyone.

                                                      " Why would I?' he said in an emotionless tone. " You deal with nut cases on a daily basis.. there was no need to add me to that list.' he said as his jawline tightened at the thought of him being crazy. Maybe everyone was right..

                                                      When she grabbed his hands he looked up at her, and into her eyes. They displayed emotions of caring and worry. The eyes that he was so used to looking into, ones that he was familiar with. She had always looked at him with those caring eyes, she was always there for him in his darkest moments. Ellie had never turned her back on him, but he had on her.

                                                      Pulling his hands away he stood from the couch, his back to his best friend as he took in a deep breath and leaned against the fireplace, his eyes trained on the firewood that wasn't burning at the moment. Shaking his head he looked over at her as there were tears in the corner of his eyes but he wouldn't cry - he couldn't.

                                                      " No.. you're wrong. It is real it was....real." he said, his voice broken.

                                                      Looking at his hand he clenched it into a fist as he squeezed tight, his hand turning white from the pressure. Will was angry at himself, he hated himself and despite the efforts of his best friend it wouldn't change what had happened, what he had seen..what he had done.

                                                      " I don't deserve to be here... I don't deserve to live." he said in a chocked tone as he still tried to fight the tears back, but he couldn't.

                                                      They dripped down his cheeks, not in complete waterfalls and he wasn't sobbing, but he was crying almost emotionless it must have been a strange yet heartbreaking scene to behold. But that was will now.. strange, and heartbreaking but most of all he was broken.

                                                      " I don't.." he couldn't finish his sentence as he just felt the overflow of emotions crash over him, the little girls face burned into his memory.

                                                      Slowly he slid down the wall as he brought his knee's to his chest and rested his elbows on his knee's, the tears still fell and his voice was lost for the moment as all he could do was shake his head and truly believe that he didn't deserve to live.

                                          Ellie sat heartbroken as Will spoke. ”No, honey, I deal with hurt people. I help heal them… I want to help heal you too,” she said in a purely empathetic tone. She could read it all over his face; he was thinking that he was crazy. It’d be hard, but she knew that she needed to convince him otherwise. His eyes showed hurt, and she was all too receiving it, her brows furrowing in pain. Seeing Will like this… it wasn’t right. He was the strong one!

                                          She allowed his to retract his hands and stand, her eyes following his form. Her own fists clenched, nails pushing hard into her palm, embedding themselves there, forming the pale skin around the thing bone. It was physically quite painful, threatening to break the bond of skin cells there and bleed, but she didn’t notice her heart was contorting in such an impossible way.

                                          ”Yes, it was real,” she began slowly, raising herself carefully, hands in front of her harmlessly, ”But it isn’t now. It’s in the past, you can’t change it…” her voice cracked as she suddenly questioned all her years of training. Nothing could have prepared her for this. Nothing.

                                          His next words made her visibly wince and her body threatened to double over on itself, like someone had actually just stabbed her in the chest. If she didn’t know any better she would have sworn that someone did. Her heart felt twisted, stretched, broken, and ripped into a thousand shreds. It felt like there was a hole in her as her brain registered his words, and the moment she saw a tear slid down his cheek her own salt water broke past the damn of her eyes. The knot in her throat threatened to choke her, her breathing shallow and barely there. In that moment she was completely broken and felt more useless than she had ever dreamed about. More useless than when his parents had actually died. More useless than her first case ever.

                                          She turned away from Will; he needed someone strong right now, and she was weaker than she had ever been before. Maybe Liara should be here, she was always stronger than Ellie thought possibly… Hiding her broken face from Will she silently sobbed for a minute before attempting to pull herself back together. Sniffling and wiping her eyes with her sleeve, she took a deep breath and turned to him again. Slowly she went near him again, but keeping at least an arm’s length between them. She sat herself on the cold ground in front of him and offered him a small smile. It was broken and light tears still spilling over from her eyes and down, just like his.

                                          ”William… if you promise me one thing for the rest of your life, please let it be that you never say that, believe that you shouldn’t live. You do, for whatever reason I don’t know. But you are meant to be here! You are meant to be here… she was desperate now, all her years of training useless. In this very moment she was a broken shell trying to save a broken soul.

                                                      Will looked up at her, his eyes connected with hers as he looked at her through the tears that were spilling over. Will definitely didn't want to sit there and cry like a child, especially in front of Ellie, but at the same time he felt as though he could only do that in front of her. Ever since the war and what he had seen and experienced he never expressed his feelings about it like he was then. It was the first time he revisited the memory for such a long time and actually started crying over it. Perhaps it was Ellie's presence that made him waver, made him feel like it was okay to break down because she would be there for him.

                                                      She was always there for him, even after the six years and the fact that they weren't even the same people anymore - there she was.

                                                      As she spoke he could hear the emotion in her voice knowing that she was serious about her words and that she meant them. Believing he was meant to be there for some greater purpose, although he didn't believe that he did believe her . He didn't know why but he felt as though her words held truth when she spoke them, the passion that was behind them, the emotion that spilled out as she sat there and comforted him - how could he not be convinced.

                                                      Nodding his head slowly he dragged the back of his arm over his face as he tried to quell the tears not wanting to go on crying all afternoon. Yes, it was a traumatic experience, and yes it would be one that he would remember for the rest of his life but he wasn't going to continue to cry about it and feel helpless .He had to fight it.

                                                      Reaching out his hand he took Ellie's in his as he squeezed it lightly and looked at her. " Thank you Ellie.. .I don't know what I would do without you." he spoke seriously.

                                                      And he meant it. Will believed that he would be completely lost without his best friend for support. As much as he had always been her protector and her rock, she was just as much his. Somehow they both had what the other was missing and fit each other like two puzzle pieces.

                                          Ellie sniffled and continually brought her sleeve to wipe away her tears as he sat there, contemplating her words. Though she wasn’t religious, she prayed. She prayed to God, Allah, Yahweh, Buddah, the Universe; she prayed to everything, hoping something would hear her silent pleas, something would reach in and help her. She felt so hopeless and heartbroken here and now, and mentally she screamed her prayers.

                                          As he nodded she smiled. Thank whoever or whatever just answered her, he responded positively! She gasped and sniffled some more with pure joy washing over her. Oh he responded positively! Never would she question why he had.

                                          Happily she let him take her hand and listened to his words, tears of joy spilling down her cheeks now. Overjoyed she more or less threw herself at him, wrapping around him and hugging him as tightly as she could manage. Her eyes squeezed shut with just as much force as she calmed herself, trying to become more level headed and rational for him. Slowly she let him go, and then took his face between her hands, wiping away some of his tears that remained. Her own blue eyes staring seriously and motherly into his own blue ones.

                                          She beamed at him, and spoke in her scratchy and hoarse voice, ”I’m going to help you through this, Will. It will be long and hard, but together we will help you.” As if to reassure him, she hugged him again, squeezing him tightly yet again. He was, physically, much like hugging a rock. But it was oddly comforting to her. Releasing him again, she took his hands and stood with him. A light squeeze and she let him go.

                                          Wandering to the kitchen, she laughed as she caught a glimpse of her red eyes and wet face in a reflection. She washed her face in the sink, trying to release some of the salty feel off her skin. Drying her face off, she gasped lightly, still trying to overcome the sobs that erupted from her chest. It was painful, but there was still a smile on her face.

                                          Going back over near Will, she took his hands again and looked into her eyes. ”I’m here for you, and we will work through this. When you are ready. Whenever you need me, I will be here. Alright? When you are ready…” she so wanted to fix him right then and there, instantaneously. But as she had to explain to her patients repeatedly, it didn’t work like that. So she would go slow and steady, not forcing him into anything. She only progressed as fast as the person she was trying to help would go. Some were faster than others, but none of that mattered. What mattered is that her best friend was hurt and she was determined to fix that pain, replace it with something else. Something pleasant.

                                                          " I want all the reports on my desk by lunchtime. No excuses. Also, take these to the techs and have them go through the footage. I want every square inch of that place to be wired with camera's, motion sensor's and metal detector's. Get me dogs, snipers and men on the ground. That place needs to be locked down. Got it?" Liara spoke to the assistant's beside her as she handed off files and discs. They nodded their heads and moved off to carry out their assignments.

                                                          Approaching her office she turned the handle and walked in, looking at her phone as she went through several different messages. Glancing up she stopped as she saw a beautiful bouquet of roses sitting on her desk. Approaching them slowly she took out the card and read it. There was nothing in it but the simple letter "D". A smile crept onto her face as she leaned forwards and smelled the roses, touching the silky petal slowly.

                                                          It had been about two days since her and Drake had dinner and spent the night together. Since then, Liara had been receiving pleasant gifts on her desk each morning all with the same letter ' D' attached to them which she only knew was from him. Though they spoke to each other since, nothing was brought up about the night they spent together. Considering every time they met to speak they were busy discussing work related things. Especially with the important meeting coming up with a new buyer, they had little time to themselves let alone time to spend with each other.

                                                          However, there were many times that their eyes would meet during meetings or some briefings and a smile would creep onto Liara's face. Though it was uncertain if the feeling was just lust or genuine happiness. Either way, Liara couldn't say she hated that part of her job too much.

                                                          Gathering the files on her desk she smelled the flowers once more before she made her way to Drake's office to deliver him the update on the facility that they would be using for the meeting with the new buyer. At the moment it was their top priority as the buyers were well known Russian gangsters and they had a lot of money. Considering that they lost one of their biggest investor's, it was safe to say they couldn't blow this one.

                                                          Knocking on the door, she waited the usual amount of time before entering Drake's office.

                                                          " I hope I'm not interrupting anything." she said as she stepped inside, the files in her arms.

                        Their night together was nothing short of intense and passionate. She was… something that he had never encountered before. A businesswoman that had a darker side; I side he so loved to indulge in. All of his women were… hardly anything in comparison. Drake was ever so glad for it too, since he couldn’t just ditch her like the others. He worked with her, and he did what he could to make it pleasurable. Certainly separate from their little escapade, but still hinted at. Little gifts here and there, a flirty comment, eye contact in a meeting. While he wouldn’t readily admit it, he could be romantic if he put effort into it. And for some irrational reason, he wanted to put effort into this.

                        ”Sorry, what’d you say?” he asked the male standing in front of his desk.

                        ”I was saying that you’ve been oddly… happy, sir.” The man looked frightened, like his comment might offend Drake. A week ago it would have.

                        A smile graced Drake’s lips, though it still looked scary on his stern features, frightening the man all the more. ”Well, you’re right. But I have a reason to be happy now. Go back to your work, Jason. Thanks for the update.” With the expressions of bewilderment and shock, Jason left.

                        It was true, though. With Liara’s “help” he had drastically changed his view. Still stern, he wasn’t as ruthless. His temper had cooled, he started to fill the shoes his father had left with more ease. It was odd and unexpected, but he wasn’t going to complain. Honestly Drake hadn’t been this happy since his early gambling days. And, like a comforting pillow, his glock sat in his waistband without worry or fear.

                        Plugging the flash drive into the computer, he opened files and read what he needed; he ran an office. A knock on his door made his green eyes look from the screen to the door. ”Come in,” he called, looking back to the screen and reading the numbers there.

                        As the female stepped through the door he once again looked at her, a wide grin coming to his face. ”Liara my good dear! Interrupt? Never. Please, come sit. I suppose you have information of the Ruskii’s?” he asked, his voice still deep, but mixed with a light, airy tone that was new. He leaned back in his chair, hands going behind his head in a relaxed manner. He knew it was serious, but he didn’t feel threatened like he used to. So much could change so fast. His orbs watched her move towards him, smile never fading. She really was beautiful.

                        [[ ]]

                                                          Liara smiled lightly as she approached him, laying the files on his desk as well as taking out a USB and plugging it into the virtual interface that brought up the information on the wall through the projector. Turning to face the wall she glanced over her shoulder at him before starting on the mini debriefing.

                                                          " I've been in constant contact with the Ruskii's. They will arrive in two days time. The meeting point has already been chosen and is being worked on as we speak. Camera's, motion sensor's, fail safes, dogs, snipers and ground units will all be there for this exchange. The local police has already been contacted and certain members paid off to make sure that the road is blocked off for some convenient construction. " as she spoke all the details showed up on the screen backing up her words.

                                                          " Here is where the exchange will take place. An old wheat farm in the country. Although it isn't abandoned as it is still owned, the farm went out of business five years ago so the area is vacant. The family who owns it has been given tickets to go on a three week cruise and will not be there to interrupt the exchange. We'll be in and out without them ever knowing we were there." she said to him as more files appeared on screen.

                                                          Turning to face him she bent over his desk lightly as she reached over to point at a few of the files." Payment is already being processed as they are giving us half up front as agreed and we will recieve the rest once the exchange is completed. The arms are being inspected and cleaned for purchase. So far , everything is running smoothly ." she said to him, finishing filling him in.

                                                          Looking up at him she noticed the small smirk on his face as she stood up straight and crossed her arms over her chest as a small smirk appeared on her own face.

                                                          " What?' she asked coyly.

                        Still relaxed, he leaned forward to put his elbows on his desk, watching her presentation with the utmost attention to detail. Two days, good. His green eyes watched the screen, taking note of the people involved, who was paid off, where it was set to take place. Everything went along so smoothly, and he wasn’t even part of it. Well, he was, but very little. The epitome of a figure head, in this particular situation. Of course he would have to be the one out in the field shaking hands and at risk of being shot. He never really dwelled on that, though. Bad goons or not, they still had a sense of honor and if neither side tried any funny business then it all went down smoothly.

                        Liara talked about payment, but he started to drift off; he never was a financing man. Only gambling, but that was a totally different playing field in his mind. What was in front of him right now was much, much more interesting. Smirking, he looked her over while she was explaining, looking back to her when she looked to him.

                        A hefty laugh fell from him as he leaned back in his chair again. ”Why does something have to be amiss? Can’t I just ogle at my sexy assistant in peace?’ he taunted her. Even though their time together was, well, once, he still took joy in seeing Liara. She had an odd way of making him… feel.

                        Pushing himself onto his feet, he stretched, feeling his various joints cracking. It was satisfying. He looked out his window momentarily in thought, then back at Liara. Walking around his desk to the side she stood at, he went up to her and cocked his head curiously to the side. ”So, how are you doing?” he asked. Such a question was not something often heard from his lips, but oddly enough he found himself genuinely concerned over this woman’s well-being and state-of-mind, home life… all of it.

                        While completely new, he couldn’t say that he didn’t mind the feeling. He wanted to ask her more, to spend more time with her and connect with her on an emotional level. Of course he wasn’t yet at the point where he could admit that to the firey creature in front of him.

                                                          Liara knew that he wasn't a big fan on the briefings and information meetings, but as head of the company he had no choice but to sit and listen - whether he liked it or not. It was important for him to be well informed. Either way, it wasn't as though it was her favourite thing to do but it was her job. Besides, she enjoyed it even more so now because she was able to see him and that was the highlight of the meetings, to her anyway.

                                                          Smirking at his comment she sighed lightly as she was slightly flattered by his comment - even if he used it on hundreds of girls before her. When he stood and walked closer to her, asking her how she was doing, she shifted her stance and leaned against the table with him, her eyes locked with his as she wore the same smirk on her face.

                                                          " I'm doing good." she started. " Especially since I keep receiving these beautiful flowers and gifts from some mystery person." she said as her smirk grew wider, since they both knew she was talking about him.

                                                          Liara would be lying if she said that she didn't like the flowers and gifts. Nobody had ever gotten her anything before, save for her parents or friends during birthday's or occasions, but when it came to men and ' dating ' Liara never had time for it. Satisfying her physical needs were never a problem, but she had never experienced a relationship...well an adult one anyway, the younger years never really counted.

                                                          Liara's hand near touched his on the desk as she stood beside him and slowly leaned in, her eyes never leaving his as she smiled at him only inches from his face. Liara couldn't help it, ever since that night she felt more drawn to Drake, and kissing him was something she had thought about doing a lot lately - well, that and many other things.

                                                          It was then that a scream rang out through the upper floor offices and Liara pulled away from Drake her eyes immeadiately shifting to the glass that looked into the office. Standing her stance stiffened as she reached for the gun on her thigh only stopping as she saw a group of people sweep through the office wearing black uniforms with assault rifles and... badges.

                                                          " F.B.I ! Everyone get down on the ground, now!" the man, who she assumed to be squad leader, shouted as he held his gun out moving through the rows of offices and desks.

                                                          Liara looked to Drake with a hint of worry in her eyes, and although he would think it was because of the police raid, it was actually because she feared she was going to have her cover blown. And at the moment what scared her more, was what Drake's reaction would be to finding out who she was rather than her job being ruined.

                                                          " Drake." she started but was cut off when the door to his office was kicked open and the squad leader entered with two men beside him .

                                                          " Get down on the ground !" he yelled.

                                                          Liara shot him a look of defiance as one of the men approached her and hit the back of her knee's so she would have no choice but to fall to the ground. They would proceed to do the same to Drake. Falling to the floor she outstretched her hands to break her fall as she looked over at Drake.

                                                          "Don't do anything Drake, I'll get us out of this." she said to him.

                                                          "Shut up!" the leader yelled . " Sweep the entire building and gather all the files and information. Take them to HQ."

                                                          -----------------

                                                          " You son of a b***h ! You could have blown my cover and the entire operation!" Liara shouted to the agent that stood before her.

                                                          " I didn't know. Otherwise we wouldn't have carried out the raid. " he said near gritting his teeth.

                                                          " Are you really that dense, don't you do any kind of investigation before you start kicking peoples doors down! " she said furious with him.

                                                          "Well if the C.I.A ever shared any information s**t like this wouldn't happen !" he yelled back.

                                                          " The F.B.I has to stop thinking it's some kind of competition ! We don't have to tell you guys anything ! You should be good enough at your jobs that you know when something's going down, did you even bother to contact us to notify someone you were going to do a raid or is the d**k measuring contest just that important to you !" she shouted.

                                                          " Enough, the both of you.' the director said as he sighed and rubbed his temples. " Smith. Charging in like that could have blown her cover and now we have to think of some kind of excuse that will get them out of here and their information returned without it looking too obvious." the older man said.

                                                          " What ! You mean we're not even going to keep any of it, or interrogate him!" the agent yelled.

                                                          " No. Agent Black is one of the best and she's dedicated her life to this objective. She will get all the information and all the culprits we need, but she needs them to be out of custody and operate normally.' he said to the F.B.I agent.

                                                          " This is bulshit!" he said slamming his hand on the desk.

                                                          " Agent Small, Beuford. Get the lawyer here and get them out . I want all documents returned as well as an apology by the F.B.I for wrongly accusing a successful business. " he said as he headed for the exit. " We're letting them go on the account of insufficient evidence and wrongful accusation." he sighed. " The paperwork for this is going to be a b***h."
