Just a friendly warning. Much of this story takes place in a strip club. There will be adult themes including illegal drug use and prostitution. I promise that I will be as tactful as possible but you may want to consider if this is the story for you. I still don't own Chuck.
P.S. A very special thanks to my friend Pancakes for teaching me how to spell Pittsburgh, lol.

Team Chuck was in Chuck and Sarah's apartment after the party.
"Sarah", said Casey. "How do you know John Marsh?"
"He was the L.A. Police department liaison with the CIA", Sarah said. "I've briefed him a couple of times on upcoming missions, intelligence on threats, things like that."
"Then why in the hell was he at that party", Casey asked?
"Because", said Chuck with sudden inspiration. "He's dirty."
"Why would you say that", asked Carina.
"Think about it", Chuck said. "Joel Matlin magically knows whenever the DOD has someone undercover targeting him. This liaison guy shows up at his party. I'll bet he knows every time someone is under cover in his jurisdiction. Doesn't he?"
"Of course", said Sarah pointedly. "The L.A. Police Department gets a daily briefing on where undercover agents are assigned so that they can broadcast an undercover on scene warning in case they get a call. Marsh is the one who gets that information."
"So", said Casey with a growl. "Marsh is the one who tipped off Matlin that Carina was undercover."
"It sure as hell looks that way", Carina said.
"Ok", said Casey. "But we have some serious problems. Sarah is our ticket into that party. But if Marsh ID's her we're in big trouble. How are we going to keep him away from her?"
"I know", said Carina with a sudden smile. "Trust me. I know exactly what to do. I just got the idea remembering our previous discussion about that night in Pittsburgh. We're going to do the same thing."
"I'm not sure that Casey is going to be wild about that", Sarah said with a wry smile.
"Well", replied Carina with a broad grin. "Maybe not exactly the same thing."
"I don't know", said Sarah her face growing serious. "Carina, that's pretty dangerous. Are you sure that you're up for that given your history with this bunch?"
"How long have you been a spy", Carina laughed. "You're talking to me about dangerous? Besides, I want these guys, in a totally different way."
"Come on", said Casey with a growl. "Someone care to tell me what the hell happened in Pittsburgh?"
"You took the words right out of my mouth", added Chuck.
"Besides", said Casey. "Carina making some mark's permanent memory list, of course."
"Ok", said Sarah with a laugh. "I'll tell the story. But Chuck, right up front, I'm sorry. You're not going to like it. It was Carina's and my first assignment after training. We were assigned to keep two marks from going to a meeting. Well things got, as they say, a little out of hand."
"You're right", Chuck said with a laugh. "I don't like it. But since I don't know the details and I'm sure that you're not going to tell me, I guess I'll live."
"Sounds pretty unprofessional to me", Casey said with a low growl.
"It was", said Carina turning suddenly serious. "I'm sorry. That won't happen again."
"It's late", replied Casey, his voice a little softer. "Let's get out of here. We'll be back tomorrow about ten. We'll finalize our plan then.
As Casey and Carina left, Sarah put her arms around Chuck and kissed him very tenderly.
As soon as the kiss broke, Chuck said, "What was that for? Not that I'm complaining."
"No reason", said Sarah. "I just missed you."
"You missed me", Chuck said with a huge smile. "We've been making out all night."
"I know", said Sarah with a sigh. "But that was working. Tonight, you've been with Sarah the slut and Sarah the seductress spy. I just wanted you to be able to spend some time with Sarah, your devoted wife, who loves you more than anything in the world."
With that, Sarah kissed Chuck again. This time with more passion. As soon as the kiss broke, Chuck smiled.
"That's my favorite Sarah."
- - - -
Chuck and Sarah were waiting at the apartment for Casey and Carina to pick them up.
"Let's talk about tonight", Sarah said to Chuck. "You're going to be alone with Angel for quite a while."
"Yup", said Chuck with no enthusiasm. "And I suppose that means that you will be alone with Matlin."
"I guess", said Sarah, looking at the floor. "But don't worry. I promise that he won't be having any fun. You, on the other hand, have to convince Angel that you're interested. If you know what I mean."
"How am I supposed to do that", Chuck said with a distinct whine. "I don't have an on / off switch you know?"
"I know that you don't have an off switch", replied Sarah with a smile. "I'm not sure about the on switch. It seems to be stuck."
"Ok", said Chuck with a grin. "Here is where I could really use some of that super spy agent advice that you're always bragging about."
"You want my advice", Sarah asked as she stepped in to face Chuck. As she hugged him close, she whispered, "Think of something sexy. I'm sure you could think of something."
"Well I guess there was that one time with Jill that", Chuck said, his voice trailing off as he saw the look on Sarah's face.
"Babe", said Chuck in a panic. "I was totally kidding. You know that right? I'm so sorry."
"It's ok", said Sarah sadly after a long moment. "I know that you were kidding."
"I'm so sorry", said Chuck. "I was just trying to be funny. I didn't think it would hurt you. You know that I'd never intentionally hurt you?"
"Really", said Sarah sadly. "It's ok. Please don't ever do it again though. Ok?"
"Never" said Chuck as he squeezed Sarah tightly. "Now I feel horrible."
"So", said Sarah with a smile, obviously trying to change the subject. "What are you going to think about?"
"That's easy", said Chuck. "I'm going to think about the first night in Vegas, standing in front of the fountains at Bellagio."
"I get it", said Sarah still smiling. "Because I told you that I would do anything that you wanted?"
"No", said Chuck softly. "Don't get me wrong. That was very nice. But I'm going to think about how jealous you got over Jill. That was the moment that I totally knew in the core of my being that we were forever. How about you? What would you think about?"
"The same exact moment", said Sarah with a grin. "For the very same reason."
- - - -
To Chuck's surprise, Casey and Carina picked them up in a black limo. Casey was dressed as a driver. Carina was already in the back.
"Here", Carina said as she handed Chuck and Sarah earpieces. "You can't wear them until Matlin is gone Chuck. When he leaves with Sarah, go to the bathroom and put it in. After that we can talk you through whatever happens."
"Ok", said Chuck with a surprised look. "But what's up with the limo?"
"You'll see", said Carina with a devilish smile. "It's going down tonight."
"Ok", said Chuck with a smile. "But Casey, I hope you're not expecting a big tip. I didn't bring much cash. Maybe after we're done here, you can cruise the airport for a while."
"Keep talking moron", said Casey with a growl. "Just remember. It's not my wife who is going to seduce the scum of the earth tonight. Just imagine the STD's that he's managed to accumulate."
"Don't worry Chuck", Sarah said softly as she saw the look on Chuck's face. "He's just joking with you."
- - - -
Matlin was waiting outside the limo when Chuck and Sarah walked up. Angel was already sitting inside.
"Charles, Sarah", said Matlin with his eyes only on Sarah. "Are we ready to party?"
"Wow Angel", said Chuck as he entered the limo. "You look very nice tonight. Is that a new dress?"
"Thanks", said Angel with a smile. "Yes it is. I've decided that I'm not working tonight."
"And Sarah", said Matlin. "You look simply delicious."
"Why thank you", said Sarah as she licked her lips suggestively. "You too."
As soon as they arrived at the party, Matlin excused himself for a few minutes as he made the rounds greeting the other guests with Angel on his arm. Sarah practically dragged Chuck to the Coke room.
"Come on Charles", she said excitedly. "I've been looking forward to this all day."
"As soon as they were alone in the room, she turned to Chuck with a smile. "Is that a new dress", she mocked.
"What about you", Chuck said with an equal smile. "Did you forget your chap stick?"
- - - -
After Chuck and Sarah were safely in the party, Casey pulled his limo up to the gate and flashed the lights. Sure enough, the gate quickly opened. Casey parked the limo in the lot. As soon as they were parked, Carina spoke.
"Will you hold this for me", Carina said as she handed Casey something from the back. I'll need it back in a few minutes."
Casey dropped it in horror when he realized that it was Carina's bra.
"Why would you do that to me at this particular time", Casey growled.
"Oh lighten up", Carina replied with a laugh. "I just wanted to see the look on your face."
After waiting for a few minutes, they sighted John Marsh as he exited another limo and walked towards the door. Carina quickly left the car and ran up to him.
"Oh Mr. Marsh", Carina called. "I have a message from Mr. Matlin."
"Hi", continued Carina breathlessly as Marsh turned towards her. "My name is Carina. Mr. Matlin wanted to thank you for the fine job that you did last week. He wanted to reward you. I'm that reward. If you will come with me, I think that I can give you a night that you'll never forget. Would you like that?"
"Sure Carina", said Marsh. "Let's go."
- - - -
Chuck and Sarah were sitting on their same couch in much their same make out position as last night when Matlin and Angel approached.
"Sarah", Matlin said. "Angel tells me that Charles promised her that he would take some time to get to know her better tonight. Would you mind if you and I left them alone to talk for a while?"
"I think that's a great idea". Sarah replied with a seductive smile. "Let me and Charles do another line real quick and we'll meet you two right here. Does that sound ok?"
"Sure", Matlin said with a leer. "But please hurry. Angel is really anxious to start her talk."
As soon as Chuck and Sarah were in the coke room, Sarah put in her ear piece and indicated for Chuck to do the same.
"Testing", Sarah said. "Casey, do you read?"
"Loud and clear", was Casey's reply.
"What is our status", Sarah said.
"Right on plan", Casey replied. "We have secured Marsh. Carina is in the back right now giving him a night that he'll never forget. I'm pretty sure that being tied and gagged with Carina kicking him in the crotch over and over is not what he had in mind. But, oh well."
"Great", said Sarah. "Expect me in five."
"Roger that", replied Casey. "We'll be ready."
"Ok Chuck", said Sarah as she removed her earpiece. "You can keep yours in now. It's show time."
"Someday", Chuck said with a smile. "You're seriously going to have to explain that to me."
- - - -
Carina was in the back of the limo with Marsh. As Casey described, his hands were securely tied behind his back. A gag was firmly in place. Carina stepped up to Marsh and kicked him solidly in the groin.
"Let me tell you a little story", Carina said sweetly as she kicked him again. "Once upon a time, I was a young undercover DEA agent. My assignment was to get close to Joel Matlin. I thought that I was doing real well. I had him thinking that I was his devoted girl friend. Sure, I had to do some fairly distasteful things but I was young and gung ho. I thought it was worth it."
"Then", continued Carina as she kicked him again. "You used your DOD connections to tip Matlin off. Well, that didn't work out very well for me. As a matter of fact, it was downright bad. I got passed back and forth between ten men for fifteen days and left for dead. It was quite unpleasant. It actually messed me up for quite a while."
"So", continued Carina as she kicked him yet again. "I think you can understand that I'm not to happy with you. As a matter of fact, you have one slim chance to survive tonight. I'm going to come back here in about an hour and you're going to tell me everything, and I mean everything that you know about this operation. Do we understand each other?"
- - - -
When Chuck and Sarah exited the room, Angel stepped up to Chuck and grabbed his hand.
"Come on Charles", she said softly as she extended her hand. "Let's go someplace where we can talk in private. Would you like that?"
"Sure", Chuck replied with a smile as he took Angel's hand. "That sounds like fun."
"We'll be back in a couple of hours", Angel said over her shoulder to Sarah with a smile as she led Chuck away. "I'm sure you can find something to keep you occupied."
Angel led Chuck into one of the private rooms. It actually was very nicely furnished. There was a plasma television hanging on the wall. Facing the T.V. was a love seat. A king sized bed was on the other side. Angel closed the door and locked it.
"I want to make sure that nobody interrupts our chat", she explained with a grin.
"Come and sit down", Angel said softly as she pulled Chuck into the love seat. She then straddled Chuck on her knees facing him. She put her arms around Chuck and kissed him passionately. After a few moments, she pulled back.
"I told you that I was a better kisser than that bitch", she whispered with a coy smile. "I bet I'm better at a lot of things."
- - - -
As soon as Chuck and Angel left, Matlin turned to Sarah with a leer.
"Well Sarah", he said. "It looks like it's just you and me for a while. What do you think that we should do for a couple of hours? I have a private room just for us."
"I feel so wild", said Sarah with a giggle as she grabbed Matlin's hand. "I've always had a fantasy about getting totally wild in a limo while we're driving. Do you think you could help me with that? I'd be oh so appreciative."
"Well", Matlin said with a laugh. "This is a side of you that I haven't seen before. I like it."
"I'm glad", said Sarah in a low seductive voice. "I want to make it up to you for being rude yesterday and for your wonderful hospitality. If you come outside with me to the limo, I promise you a night that you'll never forget."
Sarah led Matlin wordlessly to the limo as they got in she instructed the driver to take them for a ride. As the limo passed out of the gates, Sarah turned to Matlin.
"Joel", Sarah said in a throaty whisper. "I'm so hot right now. Let me fully describe my fantasy."
Matlin simple nodded for Sarah to continue.
"First", Sarah said holding up a pair of handcuffs. "I tie you up. Then I'll do a little strip for you. Then, when you're all worked up, I'll show you some special skills that I have developed. I'm too embarrassed to say it out loud but I'm sure that you'll be more than satisfied. Does that sound like fun?"
Matlin nodded as he turned and put his hands behind his back so that Sarah could apply the cuffs. As soon as Sarah had Matlin secured, she lowered the window to the driver's position. Carina turned to face Matlin who had a shocked expression on his face.
"Hi Joel", she said. "Remember me?"
- - - -
Angel kissed Chuck again, this time even more passionately. After a minute he broke off the kiss.
"Wait a minute", Chuck said. "I thought that we were going to get to know each other."
"What's the problem", said Angel. "This is how I get to know people. Charles, I can feel that you want this. Don't you?"
"Sure", said Chuck. "But can't we talk first?"
"Why waste time doing that", Angel said with a smile.
"Angel", said Chuck. Are you working now or is this real?"
"It's real", Angel said looking at the floor. "Why would you ask that? Are you trying to hurt my feelings?"
"Of course not", replied Chuck. "It's just that real people talk first, and then have sex. Pros just have sex. If you want something real with me, you have to talk to me first. Otherwise, you're just working."
"Ok Charles", said Angel. "We can talk. What do you want to talk about?"
- - - -
Carina parked the car and came around to the back. Matlin attempted to call for help.
"Guys", he said into his chest. "Help me, I've been kidnapped."
"Relax Joel", said Sarah with a smile. "We knew that you're wearing a wire and that your bodyguards monitor you constantly. Too bad that you're totally out of range. Since your bodyguards think that you're off getting laid, I doubt that they will come looking for you anytime soon."
"What do you want", asked Matlin hesitantly.
"We want some information", said Sarah as she injected the contents of a hypodermic needle into Matlin's arm.
"What is that", said Matlin with a sneer. "If you bitches think I'm going to break because of some sodium pentothal, you're sadly mistaken."
"Actually Joel", said Carina with a smile. "This is a tad different. Back in the sixties, at the height of the cold war, the CIA developed this little drug. It's a derivative of arsenic. It's quite fatal. Not only that, this particular drug works by attacking the nervous system. It's quite excruciating. In about five minutes your nerves are going to start to die. As they die, they're going to be telling your brain all about it. It's going to be like nothing you ever felt. Now, if you were to tell us what we want to know, I might give you the antidote."
"Fuck you", yelled Matlin. The look on his face told that he was starting to feel the effects of the drug.
"Your call Joel" said Sarah with a smile. "As long as we have a couple of minutes here, you said you wanted to see me in the back on my back."
Sarah went to back seat and lay down on her back.
"Well Joel", Sarah said softly. "Did it meet your expectations?"
- - - -
"Ok", said Chuck with a smile. "I'll start. Is Angel your real name?"
"No", said Angel with a smile as she climbed off of Chuck and sat beside him. "My real name is Amy. But I've been Angel for a few years now. Nobody knows me as Amy any more."
"So Amy", said Chuck. "I'm not judging you. I'm just curious. Why are you in this business?
"It's all I know how to do", said Angel sadly. "The money's great. And it's where the coke is."
"I'm sure you could do something else", Chuck said softly. "You seem very bright."
"Come on Charles", Angel said a little harshly. "What is a high school dropout going to do that would pay the kind of money that I would need to keep up my coke habit? You guys crack me up. You think that it's so easy."
Just then Chuck heard Casey over his earpiece, "Ok kid. It's time to get out of there. Meet me in the car."
"You know Amy", said Chuck. "You could stop using so much coke?"
"No Charles", replied Angel with tears starting to form in her eyes. "No I couldn't."
"I'm sorry", said Chuck. "I didn't want to make you feel bad. Are you still wanting to go to bed?"
"Sure", Angel said. "Anything that you want."
"Ok", said Chuck. "I'll tell you what. I have to go to the bathroom. Why don't you get in bed and I'll be right back. Would that work?"
"Yes", said Angel softly.
"Good", said Chuck softly as he hugged her and kissed the top of her head. "I'll be right back."
- - - -
"Come on", said Matlin in obvious pain. "Please help me."
"This has only started", said Carina. "It's going to get ten times worst. Are you ready to answer some questions?"
"Yes" said Matlin panting for breath.
"How are you getting the cocaine into the country", Sarah asked.
"It's shipped inside boxes made to look like video games", Matlin replied. "We have a custom's agent, Max Andrews, who makes sure that they don't get inspected."
"Does anybody else in customs know about this", Sarah asked?
"No", replied Matlin.
"When is your next shipment", asked Sarah?
"On Thursday", replied Matlin while grimacing in pain.
"How are you getting tipped off that you're being targeted", asked Sarah?
"I have a contact with the police who knows whenever somebody undercover is assigned", replied Matlin.
"And what is this contact's name", asked Sarah?
"John Marsh", replied Matlin, starting to struggle to speak.
"Anybody else", asked Sarah?
"No", cried Matlin. "Come on. I've answered all of your questions. Please give me the antidote. I'm really hurting. I can't stand this any more."
"About that", said Carina as she and Sarah opened the door and left the limo. "We were lying about there being an antidote."
As Carina closed the door, she said loudly, "I won you bastard."
"No" Matlin screamed as they walked away. "Please. Please help me."
When Casey and Chuck drove up, Carina was sobbing in Sarah's arms. Chuck and Casey got out of the car and walked up to them. Carina wrapped her arms around Chuck.
"I'm so proud of you", Chuck whispered to Carina as they embraced. "You won"
"No Chuck", Carina smiled through her tears. "We won."
"How are you doing", said Casey with a smile as Carina fell into his arms. "I've been sort of worried about you."
"Take me home", said Carina with a twinkle in her eye. "And I'll show you how I'm doing. I'll show you until you're tired of asking."
"Are you sure that you don't want Chuck to drive", Sarah said with a giggle. "I'll ride up front and you guys can have the back seat. You're an expert at back seats. I mean we do have to drop Marsh off but then again having an extra guy has never bothered you before."
"Oh shit", Casey muttered. "Not this again."
- - - -
The debriefing couldn't have gone any better. Beckman was ecstatic.
"Great job", she said loudly. "You've managed to destroy a major cocaine operation. We picked up Max Andrews. He and Marsh are singing like a choir. We raided the warehouse where the party was being held and we found about twenty million dollars worth of cocaine. We are meeting the new shipment Thursday and expect to be able to seize several hundred millions of dollars worth of cocaine. That should put a major dent into organized crime's finances for a while. Well done".
"Thank you ma'am", said Casey.
"And Sarah", said Beckman. "If you could possibly keep that husband of yours from flashing on some bad guy for any length of time, feel free to take a couple of days off. You've earned them."
"Don't worry ma'am", said Sarah with a grin. "I don't intend to let him out of the apartment for two days. He'll be quite occupied. Then, he'll probably be too weak to flash for a couple of more days."
"Ok", said Beckman with a smile. "Just don't kill him. We need him."
"Yes ma'am", said Sarah. "I'll be careful."
"Good" said Beckman. "Dismissed."
"I don't know", said Chuck with a yawn as soon as the screen went blank. "I'm pretty tired. Do you think we could postpone this marathon for a day or so?"
"Really", said Sarah with disappointment obvious in her voice. "If that is what you really want, I guess so."
"Come on babe", said Chuck with a laugh. "I'm totally teasing you. Just like you've been teasing me for the past couple of days. As the fight guy says, let's get ready to rumble."
"Thank god", Sarah replied with a smile. "You are so going to pay for that."
- The End -
Sarah was jolted awake by her cell phone ringing. Chuck was still sound asleep. She could tell by the caller id that it was Director Graham.
"Sarah Bartowski, secure", she answered.
"Yes sir. I'm alone", she said as she walked out of the bedroom and closed the door.
"Yes sir. Of course I remember."
"Yes sir. I understand how important it is. But you seriously can't expect me to ask Chuck to agree to that. It would kill him.
"Yes sir. I understand how vital it is. I'll ask him, ok sir? But if he says no then I can't do it."
"Yes sir. I'll let you know today."
