A/N: Hey guys This is a random story that popped into my head one day and I just had to write it down. It's a multi-fic so let me know what you think. BTW the name of the Triad leader is just a joke, I don't mean to offend anybody I just thought it would be funny. Enjoy!
"It's important for the details discussed today to remain between us," Lilian starts. "No one is to speak a word of this to anyone, am I clear?" As everyone nods she continues, "There's been a recent breakout of mafia activity. As you probably know, the Chinese mafia has been slowly transferring their members to the United States. As of 11:00 pm last night, our contacts have informed us of a meeting taking place tomorrow night at an underground poker establishment. Sum Ting Phun, the leader of the Triad is supposedly making an appearance. No one in the U.S. government has ever seen him. Gabriel, I need you and Riley to go undercover as a wealthy couple and find out what this Sum Ting Phun looks like. If we can get a visual on him, the CIA will have a better chance of tracking more breakouts around the country.
Gabriel looks over at Riley with a questioning glance and notices the same puzzled expression on her face.
"If it's an undercover Chinese meeting how are we, two Americans, supposed to sneak in?" Gabriel asks.
"You won't be sneaking in; the meeting is invite only," Lilian says, "You will be taking the places of two undercover CIA agents that have been following the mafia for 2 years now."
"Won't the members of the Triad recognize that we aren't those two agents?" Riley chimes in.
"No, the contact between the CIA and the Triad has been strictly written conversations. There will be a few more undercover CIA agents there, so you won't be alone. I assure you if this was a dangerous mission I wouldn't have volunteered you. All you have to do is get in, identify the leader and get out"
"Sounds easy enough, do we have undercover names?" Gabriel asks "And how will they know it's us?"
Lilian grabs a folder from a nearby desk and hands it to Gabriel. "In there you will find everything you need to know. For this mission you'll be using your own names. The mafia has no information on you other than the fact that you are a married couple who serve together for the government. In the folder you will find a list of dialogue exchanged between the CIA agents and the Triad. Memorize it. The location is also in the folder along with information you need to get in."
Riley approaches Gabriel and begins scanning the pages alongside him.
"You need to realize that there will be a hundred Chinese Triad members in that room. One wrong move and you're dead." Lilian warns.
Gabriel looks up from the folder with a wry smile on his face. "I thought you said you wouldn't put us in danger?"
With a serious expression on her face, Lilian answers "I lied, unfortunately your job will always put you in harm's way, my job is to make sure you're as prepared as possible."
"We will be" Riley says with a certain confidence that only she could muster. She notices Gabriel smile at her comment from the corner of her eye.
"Yeah, I mean with Riley here, who could be in danger?" Gabriel says in a low sarcastic voice that makes Riley roll her eyes. He glances over at her and notices a hint of a smile. "Don't worry, we'll be ready."
After the meeting with Lilian, Gabriel and Riley start heading home to prepare for the assignment. As Riley drives the car, she notices Gabriel reading the folder. "Wow, look at that, Gabriel is actually studying. I honestly thought you would just wing the whole thing."
He chuckles, "Did I disappoint you?"
She looks back towards the road, "Not more than usual."
Gabriel smiles at her comment, after a few moments he says, "Are you nervous?"
Riley almost scoffs, "Why would I be nervous?"
"Gosh, well I don't know, I mean you are about to be married to the most charmingly handsome man alive." He says with a cheeky grin.
Riley starts laughing, "I'm sorry what? Did that really come out of your mouth?"
"Come on admit it I'm pretty handsome aren't I?"
She rolls her eyes, "Your pretty something alright, but it isn't handsome."
"Ouch, Riley you know you can be pretty hurtful sometimes." He says with a little bit of sarcasm.
"Oh I'm sorry did that bruise your ego?"
"A little bit"
Riley laughs a little.
"You know you're going to need to be nicer to me if we're going to be married." He looks over at her, waiting for a response but it doesn't come. "Riley?"
"Are you sure you're ok with this? You know pretending to be married? I mean after all you've been through with… Amelia, I just don't want to step on any toes." She looks over at him to make sure he understands what she's trying to say. He looks away for a second, remembering the event in his mind. "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have brought it up."
"No it's ok, I'm fine. We can do this." He pauses, "I'm just worried that you won't be able to take your hands off of me." He says, trying to lighten the mood. He gives her a smile to show her he's ok.
She rolls her eyes and smiles back at him then, she puts her attention back on the road.
A/N: So? What did you think? I know it's a bit short but I already have the whole thing planned out. Let me know what you think :)
