Darien got into his car, "Aw crap! What have I done. The Official's going to kill me. No, Bobby's going to kill me. How could I be so stupid?" He said, hitting his head against the steering wheel. Darien started the car.
Darien walked into the Agency. Bobby was standing there waiting for him. "Hey partner," Darien said, not looking Bobby in the eyes.
"Hey, is something wrong?" Bobby asked.
"Because you're not looking at me."
"No, everything is fine."
"Let me see your eyes."
Darien looked at him. He didn't want his guilt to show. But all he could think about was how he had betrayed Bobby. He knew Bobby was in love with Claire, and he kissed her anyway. What kind of person did that make him, what kind of friend did that make him? "I'm fine,"
Bobby didn't quiet know for sure what was going on with Darien. But this didn't look good. At least he could rule out quicksilver madness, Darien's eyes were their regular chocolate brown. "Okay, well the Official wants to see us." Darien followed Bobby to the Official's office.
"Have a seat," The Official said. Darien and Bobby sat down. "I received a call this morning from the President. He wants my two best agents on a mission for him."
"Now that's what I'm talking about. You see Fawkesy, we're finally getting some of the recognition that we deserve."
The Official started to laugh, "I was just jerking your chain. Actually, we have a case about a well being too deep."
Darien walked into the Keep, "Hey Claire, can we talk?"
Claire looked up from her computer, "I'm kind of busy right now, can we talk later?"
"Sure," Darien said. This was not good, at any second he was scared that Bobby was going to find out. And now Claire was ignoring him.
Darien got into the van. Bobby started it. "So what took you so long?"
"I took a detour." Darien replied, not wanting to say that he stopped at the Keep.
"You've been acting strange partner, is something going on?"
Darien couldn't afford to keep playing this game, but he didn't want to tell Bobby either. "Well, I got a call this morning, my aunt is sick."
"Oh, sorry about that man." Bobby replied. They drove the rest of the way in silence.
Claire walked over to her chemistry set. She was working on a way to make stage 5 counteragent. She had gotten a small sample at the hospital when Arnaud had captured Darien; but it wasn't really enough to help. The only progress that she had made so far was with Cryogenic acids. But she didn't need that for the counteragent. Something had defiantly gone wrong in the mix. "What am I doing wrong?" Claire said to no one in the room.
Darien opened his apartment door, he was tired and the only thing on his mind was how much he wanted to sleep. He set his keys on the counter and walked toward his bed. He didn't even care to get changed, he just took off his shoes and laid down hoping to fall asleep fast.
Today's mission was supposed to be a piece of cake, measure a well and get back to dodge. Well, it wasn't.
Who could have known that the people who owned the well were drug dealers. The reason for the well being so deep was because it led to a secret lab. There wasn't even water in it. You would think that the people would have at least tried to make it look less conspicuous. So Darien had to go see-through and check out the lab, while Bobby got to get in a shoot out.
And the paper work, now that was something Darien didn't look forward too.
Darien was finally falling to sleep when his phone rang. "Hello?" He said.
"Hey Darien, it's Claire. Can we talk?"
"So, what did you want to talk about?" Darien asked, sitting down in the park bench.
"Yesterday, when umm. Well..."
"You mean when I kissed you?" Darien asked.
"Yes, that's what I meant. Umm, we need to talk about it."
"Yeah, I know." Darien said. "Actually, that's what I came to talk to you about in the Keep this morning."
"I figured that much... Darien, I just want you to know... I don't think of you as more then a friend. And even if I did, it just couldn't be."
Darien let out a sigh of relief. This is exactly what he needed. Not that Claire wasn't attractive or anything, it was just that, well he liked having her as a friend.
Claire heard Darien sigh, he was taking it harder then she thought. "I'm sorry Darien, it's just that..."
"Don't be sorry."
Darien stood up from the bench he was on. "You're right. It never would have worked. Eugene Lonesco said, You can only predict things after they have happened.' He's right. I could have never predicted this. But then again, it could have been worse, Bobby could have found out." Darien said with a smile and then walked away, Leaving Claire to wonder what he meant.
Bobby took of his earphones. He was using a satellite to hear what Darien and Claire were saying. Bobby felt a little hurt after hearing what had gone on. Then again, he knew he had no right to be listening in the first place. He started his van and pulled out of the parking lot.
