CHAPTER III – What Just Happened?
doesn't know what to think or what to do. He's so stunned he can't
move. He just stands there, chin dropped, watching as Terri and
Stiles have wild sex on the deck. Suddenly, the phone rings.
"Yeah?" Lex answers.
"Lex, are they okay? Is it over, are they back?" it's Joshua.
"Well... they got Polvon but I think they'll take their time coming back from the boat. And they appear to be great." Lex says, as he's got his hand over his eyes. But he peeks through his fingers
occasionally, watching them. "I can't see this!" Lex says out loud to himself, and shuts down the camera.
"You can't see what, Lex?"
"Uh... okay. Do you know how mad Terri was at Stiles before?"
"That won't be anything compared to how mad she'll be once she finds out that I saw what she is doing on that boat."
do you mean, Lex? What's going on?"
"Picture Terri as your daughter. What would shock you the most to see her doing?"
"On a boat with a hunk?!"
"Oh, my! Are you telling me..."
"Terri and Stiles are going at it on the deck!"
"Terri? Ms. Terri Lowell?"
"And Mr. Stiles?"
"But she doesn't even know him well enough to..."
"No, it can't be. She doesn't like him."
"What can I say? Apparently she's 'liking' him right now."
Jackson arrives and only hears the last part.
"Who's 'liking' whom?"
"Uh... I don't think I should tell you."
"Come on, Lex. What's going on?"
"Tell you what? You up for some sensationalist TV?"
"Turn on the surveillance camera."
Joshua heard him. "No! Lex, don't let him see it!"
"Wait!" Lex shouts at Jackson.
"What? Lex, what is happening?"
"You know what - talk to Joshua. I think he can explain."
Jackson gets the phone. "Hey, it's Jackson. Can you tell me what is going on with Lex?"
"I don't think Lex is the problem. He's just a little stunned."
"Ms. Lowell and Ms. Stiles apparently are very close now."
"What do you mean?"
"Well... it seems that Terri and Stiles are having 'wild sex on the deck' as Lex would call it."
"What? That can't be right. Terri is not this impulsive, something must be wrong." He turns on the surveillance camera. "Oh."
"What?" Joshua asks.
"I think something definitely is wrong because Terri and Stiles can't keep their hands off of each other." He turns off the camera.
"Okay, we have to agree that this is awkward." Lex said.
"And embarrassing." Jackson replied.
"Mr. Haisley, would you put me on speaker, please?"
Jackson does so and puts the phone down. "Okay, you're on."
"We cannot in any way let Ms. Lowell know about this tape. She would die if she found out. So, just act like you don't know what's going on. We can give her a hard time about it when she gets back."
Both Lex and Jackson agreed with Joshua. They were going to pretend they knew nothing about it.
After having sex, Stiles and Terri laid down on the deck not saying a word. When she fell asleep, he could only look at her.
she's something!" he thought to himself. "So full of
passion, and willing to take risks. Loved it! It's the first time I
see a woman who just wants sex! Who knew?"
Then, Stiles remembers something. "My God! The cameras! What if..." he looks at the cameras and sees they're turned off. "Thank God! Can you imagine if someone had seen this?" he thinks, relieved.
Afraid someone would turn on the cameras, and wanting to spend some time with her, Stiles carried Terri back inside the boat. As he was laying her down, she woke up.
"Hey." he tells her, not sure of what to say.
"Hey yourself." she replies.
There's an awkward silence. Both of them are not sure of what to say, so they just stand there.
"Do you think they noticed we're not back?" Terri asks.
"Probably. Do you want to get back? Maybe we could stay here."
"Are you sure? What if they suspect something?"
"If they noticed we're not back yet, it makes no difference. We're already late, so we'll just say we were exhausted and slept here. If they didn't, there's nothing to worry about." Stiles replies.
"Okay. We'll stay. I like what this 'taking risks' thing did to me."
Stiles smiles at her comment and kisses her. It turns passionate and they end up having sex once again.
next morning, Terri wakes up before Stiles.
"Back to reality." she thinks to herself. "I'd better take a shower."
She gets up and can't help looking at this handsome man on the bed. She feels like waking him up and having the best sex ever, but she stops. "In fact, I'd better take a cold shower." she says to herself.
As Terri is taking a shower, Stiles gets up and sees she's not by his side. he checks the watch - 5:30. "She's gone?" he thinks, disappointed. Then, he hears the water running in the bathroom. "She's just taking a shower." he thinks.
He decides he'll buy her some coffee, so he gets his clothes and remembers his wallet is back at the backup site. "Damn! Maybe there's something in here to eat." He goes to the kitchen and finds
everything he needs - coffee, eggs, milk, fruits and some other food. "Who's to say the CIA don't think about everything?" he says sarcastically.
When she gets out of the shower, she smells something coming from the boat kitchen. She goes there and sees Stiles prepared some coffee and omelets.
"I'd cook more stuff if I knew how to do it." He says setting the table.
She smiles. "It's okay. Good morning."
"Good morning. I didn't wake you, did I?"
"How could you? You were asleep when I got up."
"Well, there have been complaints about my kicking while I'm asleep."
"Yes. So, I hope I didn't kick you."
"No, you didn't. And besides, if you did, I'd just kick your ass."
"You're never gonna let go you beat me up, are you?"
"Let's forget about that and have breakfast. We should get back to the apartment as soon as possible."
They sit down and have breakfast. They talk a bit about themselves.
"So, what is A.B.?"
"Too soon to tell."
"Too soon? How can it be too soon to tell me your name?"
"Oh, believe me it's too revealing. Forget it."
"Okay. Why did you join the Agency?"
"As I said, Mr. Quinn convinced me it was a better way of serving my country. Back then, I was having problems with my chief of command, and around that time Mr. Quinn contacted me. I think my superiors were trying to get rid of me."
Terri laughed. For some reason, he loved her laugh and laughed too. It scared him a little that he was enjoying being with her so much.
"Anyway, a while later was 9/11. I wanted to be fighting, but Quinn told me that in here I had better ways of winning this war. That's why I joined for good. Why did you join?"
"Well, I found out my ex-husband, Jeff, was having his second affair, so I decided it was time for me to leave him and move on. I wanted to be a part of something that mattered, and I didn't want to have anyone butting in. So, I decided to join the CIA."
"Why was he cheating on this woman?" Stiles thought to himself.
Terri noticed Stiles was thinking about something.
"What?" she asked.
"Uh? Oh, nothing. I was just thinking."
Stiles cell phone rang. "Saved by the bell" he thought.
It was Jackson. "Where are you?"
"Oh, Terri and I were tired last night so we slept on the boat."
"Ah, okay. Listen, you two should head back; we gotta pack and leave."
"Sure. We'll be there in about 1 hour."
They hang up. "We should get going." he tells Terri.
"Sure. Let me just get my stuff."
was on the phone with Joshua while Jackson was talking to
"No, they're still not back yet." Lex told Joshua.
"Let me know when they get there."
Lex hung up. Less than 30 seconds after, Jackson hung up too.
"So, what did he say when you asked him about not coming back last night?" Lex asked.
"He just said they were too tired to come and slept on the boat."
"Oh, I bet they were tired."
