Hey I know I'm the worse because I've updated in forever and I could go on and on about school, sports, and work. But I'm going to keep it short and sweet. Sorry for not updating sooner, I'll try better now that it's summer. Enjoy!
"Ok so now that we have Alex back on our side. What is our next move?" Birkhoff asked as everyone took a seat on the couch.
"Simple. Division needs to be handled with. And to do that we need to break in,' Nikita answered nonchalantly.
Birkhoff's eyes grew twice as big as he replied, "Break in… to Division?"
Alex was wary about this, why go to such measures? "Nikita, I know you want to get your son back but there can be other ways to get him. I know where Amanda's keeping him…"
Michael interrupted, "What are you implying Alex?"
"Simply that all Division knows is that the first rescue team they sent for me didn't work so hot, and that the second didn't rescue me but got Tristan the first prize and what Division was after all along. I could simply go in and say that it only looked like I left with you guys because Tristan was putting lies into my head. I can say that once I was away from there, I realized that no matter how much time had passed I still couldn't trust you and that you were going to help get Semak as much as you did when you lead me to Division. I'll say that I got away and that I'm back for good and that I will do anything to prove what I'm worth to them. Then once Amanda believes my story and goes on to other business, I'll quietly sneak into her old office and take Mason. If I get stopped I'll say Amanda told me to take him out for some air, I'll just never return to Division." Alex bluntly stated.
Michael thought about it awhile before saying, "Sounds like a good plan. I'd have a car a ways off the property where it couldn't be spotted in Operations and you guys could easily get in after you clear all the gates."
"No" Nikita stated.
Michael, Birkhoff, and Alex all looked at her in astonishment.
"Why not?" Alex asked.
Nikita looked right at her with a face that said you know why, "I want to go."
"Are you crazy?" Birkhoff asked.
Michael held Nikita's hand before starting, "Nikita you know how Division works, we risk our lives every time we do an op trying to take them down. There have been times when we both have thought that the other was dead. We can't take that risk this time. I know you want to get Mason out of Division, I know you wish that it never was this way but it is and the easiest way to get him out alive is if we do Alex's plan. We both know that there will be a gun fight if one of us goes instead of her. We can't risk Mason getting hurt; it will be a hard enough transition for him as it is."
"True" Alex added, "Amanda is the only parent he's ever known. We will be taking him from her and then we'll have to try and explain who we are to him."
"Not to metion that sooner or later we'll have to tell that his dad's dead," Birkhoff stated as he made his way to the kitchen.
Nikita and Michael both exchanged a glance before Nikita said, "Actually we won't have to tell him that."
"Why?" Birkhoff asked as he returned with two beers, he handed one to Michael before adding, "even if Division took him in alive, he isn't going to stay alive for long."
Michael leaned forward as he started, "It won't matter if Tristan's dead or not by the time we get Mason back. Because whether Tristan's alive or dead; Mason's dad is still alive."
"What do you mean? Mason is Tristan's father DUH. There's no way that Nikita just happened to get knocked up by some random dude. Amanda made me do the math, it works out perfectly!" Birkhoff stated before thinking about it for a bit, "Now that I think about it something didn't add up when I was calculating."
"And what was that?" asked Michael.
Birkhoff stood up and started walking around as he added, "I figured I was just messing up on something but every time I did the calculation it came out to the kid being conceived about a week or so before the Tristan op."
Nikita smiled at Michael as she asked, "Like around the time that Michael and I were in Russia?"
"You know what, that could have been it," Birkhoff said, "but like I said, Nikita didn't deflect from her orders then, I knew that she didn't sleep with some stranger and get knocked up. The computer I used had a virus and I got a new one so actually that little screw up wasn't really that bad."
"Well you're right about something," Michael added, "Nikita didn't sleep with some stranger in Russia, but she did sleep with me."
"What? Really?" Alex wondered glancing at Nikita to make sure.
Birkhoff looked at the three of them really confused, he had no idea what was going on. Michael was smiling, more like glowing as he stared at Nikita. Nikita was nodding towards Alex with a smile on her face and Alex was just shocked. "So what did I miss? I seriously don't think you guys are telling me everything."
"What Michael just told us is that he's Mason's father!" Alex practically shouted.
"What? No way," Birkhoff explained sitting down next Michael, "Really Mickey?"
"Really," Michael answered.
Birkhoff patted Michael on the back and then looked into Nikita's eyes and said, "That makes this rescue mission much harder now. There's no way that either one of you can go on the op now. You're too close to it."
"Exactly," Alex stated, "It would just be easier if we did my way no mess, no body count, just a fast and easy escape."
Nikita stood as she said, "There's no way that it will be that easy. This is Amanda we're talking about. She'll realize something's up."
"No she won't," Michael interrupted, "I worked with Amanda for so long that I learned how to slip a few things by her."
"Like what?" Birkhoff asked, "the jealously and anger you felt towards her because she got Mason and you didn't."
With hearing this, Nikita's facial expression changed from hard thinking to confusion directed at Michael. Seeing this Alex wondered, "What do you mean she got Mason?"
"I had to hand him over to Division a couple months after I gave birth," Nikita started, "Michael came and took him one day but I thought that Percy or Amanda was going to raise him. I never knew…"
Michael went over and took Nikita's hand before adding, "You never knew because I didn't really believe that Percy was going to raise Mason. I figured when Amanda took him from you after you delivered that she was going to take him to an adoption agency or something. It wasn't until later that I learned one of us would take him."
"And I was sure Mickey boy would get him since he's the only sane one out of the bunch," Birkhoff added.
"Anyway Amanda won far and square because Mason was just a baby and needed a mother," Michael finished, "and I'm sure part of the reason Percy chose Amanda to raise him was because he knew I wouldn't be able to handle it."
"Handle it?" Nikita wondered, "Why would he think that? You know what it's like to take care of a baby!"
Alex was in shock by everything that was going on around her. Not only was Nikita pregnant when she was at Division but she hardly even got to hold her baby after he was born. And Michael was willing to raise Mason, a recruit's baby, as his own, when it turns out Mason was his all along.
"I'm sure Percy thought I got too close after Eagle Eye," Michael added.
Birkhoff scoffed as he got up and started towards the kitchen, "More like Amanda thought that you were too close and then planted the seed in Percy's insane little head."
"Guys," Alex stated, "I hate to interrupt your very awkward and sad trip down memory lane but don't we need to get everything in order?"
"True," Nikita said, "Now I know that everyone wants to use Alex's plan but what if it doesn't work. The risk of her getting stopped is too high."
"Nikita it's the safest way to do it," Alex pleaded.
Nikita sat down next to her, took her hand and added, "I'm not letting you risk your life for me on this one. Mason is my son, he's in Division and I'll get him out. He's in there because of me; I'm the one who needs get him out; to clean up the mess I made."
"That's nice of you Nikita," Alex replied, "I'm grateful and I understand why you feel like you need to do this but Nikita you need to focus on the safety of your son. It will be safest if I take him out of Division. I don't have to break in, and he's still small enough that I should be able to skirt past security with no problems."
"Yeah no problems at all," Birkhoff laughed entering the room again, "what happens if your little boyfriend catches you?"
"Boyfriend?" Nikita asked.
"Who? Sean?" Alex wondered, "There's nothing going on between us!"
Michael deciding that that was enough for the night, said, "You know what, we can work out the plan in the morning. It's dark out and it's been a long day let's all get to bed."
"Good idea," Birkhoff said, "Hey mini Nikki, your room's this way."
"Well I guess that's my cue," Alex laughed as she gave Nikita good night hug before leaving.
Michael took Nikita's hand and led her to their bedroom before saying, "Go ahead."
"With what?" Nikita asked.
Michael laughed as he explained, "I know you want to plead your case about how you need to the one who goes and get's Mason out."
"Actually," Nikita said, "I really want to talk about why you volunteered to raise Mason."
Michael sat down on the bed before starting, "Well I knew that if you had to choose anyone else to raise your child instead of you that you would want someone like me. Also seeing how much you went through after the birth and all the chaos leading up to it, I knew you deserved time to relax and be a mom."
"But you were going to raise him, even though you believed he wasn't yours…why?" Nikita questioned sitting next to him on the bed.
Michael took Nikita's hand and looked in her eyes as he said, "Because he was yours and I wanted to be a part of his life. I wanted to feel like I did when Haley was alive. I wanted to be a dad again. I saw a chance and I took it. Plus raising your son would have been really fun." Nikita looked at him with tears in her eyes. "So you aren't mad me are you? Since I tried to be the one that would raise your son?"
Nikita kissed Michael before replying, "No of course not. I'm just surprised that you would do that for me, and for Mason; for a boy you didn't believe was your son."
"I will do anything for you," Michael said before leaning in to give Nikita a kiss. Once the kiss was over he added, "And I will do anything for our son."
"RUSSIAN PRINCESS!" they heard Birkhoff scream.
"WHAT?" Alex shouted back.
They heard Birkhoff's door open as he said, "we're switching rooms, I can't stand hearing all this lovey-dovey crap."
Michael and Nikita both smiled and laughed as they felt Birkhoff started to go downstairs. Michael waited until he believed Birkhoff was right outside their door when he leaned towards Nikita and asked, "You want to make another baby right now?"
"Hmm," Nikita said, "I'm good with just one baby, oh well kid for now. Maybe just practice for now."
"Works for me," Michael stated, "practice makes perfect right?"
"Never mind Alex," Birkhoff mumbled as he walked down the steps after hearing the whole conversation, "we don't need to switch rooms; I just need to switch houses."
Ok I hope you enjoyed. I went a little lovey dovey for this chapter hope you guys don't mind. How was that finale? I can't wait for Season 3 I wonder what will happen?
