Summary: During their mission together in Uzbekistan, Michael and Nikita spend night together, then things with Kasim went really messy, and after Nikita betrayed him to the authorities he got rid of all the feelings to her. After that Nikita went completely off the radar for a long time, till Michael discovered her place and paid her an unexpected visit.
"Ask me how I got here." He was sitting in a middle of the room with a gun in his hands. His eyes were severe and fixed on a woman who just entered. She was still holding her cell in hand. Probably just ended phone conversation. Woman was clearly shocked seeing the unexpected visitor.
"What do you want, Michael?" Nikita asked with anxiety. Her voice echoed from the empty walls of her loft making it sound even more trembling.
"I want you to stop messing with me." he accented each word. He was angry. Barely controlling his emotions.
"I'm not messing with you Michael. I'm just trying to stop Percy. I think it's what we all want. To make him pay for what he had done."
"So why did you stop me from killing Kasim? You said you would help me get the man that killed my family-"
I couldn't let you do it because it was suicide! You were not thinking rationally, Airport security would have killed you on spot!
"I had him! "–He raised his voice -"I passed Security, I was on the tarmac, I would kill him and nobody would even realize what had happened! You took that chance from me! I'm sick of your games."
"And what are you going to do?"- she asked looking on a gun he was holding.
"I will bring you in."
"You can't do that" Nikita whispered.
For a short moment maybe a second Michael had impression that he saw a glimpse of fear in her eyes. He blinked and it was gone. Her eyes were as impermeable as always.
"And why is that? "he narrowed his eyes waiting for the answer-"Give me one reason why should I spare you this time."
Nikita didn't even try to find some suitable lie, she knew that only truth can save her now. He is very close to fulfill his threat. She saw that in Michael's eyes. She took a big breath and said:
"Now there is definitely fear in her eyes" Michael thought and waited for her to continue.
" Because I'm pregnant Michael."
She said it. Nikita couldn't believe she confessed from her biggest secret to a man who was keeping her at the gunpoint. The same man who had a big part in this secret. She was carrying his child after all.
Nikita was looking at Michael studying his face expression, trying to read something from it.
Yet he did something she didn't expect. He smiled and shaking his head almost laughed out loud.
- "Percy was right, you are all about yourself. You would do anything to save your own skin would you? "He stopped smiling, stood up and pointed his gun at her "It's not your best lie. Try something better."
His words hurt her more than she would admit. But Nikita wasn't surprised he didn't want to believe what she just said. She spend almost a week adjusting to that -at least to say- unexpected turn of events.
-"I can prove that to you."– she said slowly starting to undo her jacket while he was still pointing his gun at her. Nikita took the jacket off and what Michael saw made him froze. His face winced with the expression of disbelief.
Always slim Nikita now had a slightly prominent belly under a beige sweatshirt.
"It's impossible." he said in shock.
"It's your baby."
"It's impossible" he repeated little bit louder. "We slept together only once, and it was almost four months ago."
"But here we are." Nikita's voice was calm and steady.
"How... What the hell are you thinking anyway? You want to raise a kid with division hunting you? How the hell are you going to do that? " Michael felt like he was thrown to a carousel of conflicting emotions. He was angry, surprised, scared and although he didn't want to admit, happy in the same time.
" You think I planned this Michael?" – She said angrily –" It happened! But I love this child as much as I love you and I will try my best to provide him safety and love I have never had. I will do anything to protect him."
Michael was overwhelmed with everything he just have heard in past 5 minutes. She is having his baby, she loves him….
" If Percy or Amanda will know that you have a baby….."
" I know, that's why I'm keeping low profile lately. I'm working on how to get out of this mess. And I think you will be able to help me do it…."
