Saw A-Team today…it was good even though I thought it was going to be terrible because of Jessica Biel—she ruins a lot of movies for me, lol.
Anyway…this is based off of the movie and has some of the movie in it, but it really doesn't ruin anything if you haven't seen it, I promise.
The first part takes place technically before the main plot of the movie, but only for a little while and then there's a time shift.
It's kind of my own ideas and the romance part kind of follows a different pattern than my others.

If the first sound the brunette heard that morning was going to be anything, she did not want it to be her cell phone going off. She reached over to the nightstand and grabbing it, feeling it vibrating in her hand as she flipped the top open, and pushed her hair out of her face with her other hand. If there was one thing that 23 year-old Anna Smith knew, it was to always answer her phone no matter what—unless you were in a life or death situation where silence was the only way to go. In that case, why would you have your phone's sound on in the first place unless you were suicidal?
"Hello?" She answered tiredly, yawning a little and sitting up, fluffing her hair a little and keeping her eyes closed as she tried to join the world again more consciously.
The man on the other end chuckled. "Morning, Sweetheart."
"Dad!" Anna said happily, smiling and feeling a lot more awake as her eyes sprang open. "It's been a while, how are you?"
"Just got out of a mission with the boys and I wanted to check in." He explained to her.
Col. John 'Hannibal' Smith, or Hannibal as he took to being known as, hadn't ever thought about falling in love and settling down and having children—so he never did. He did, however, make a decision he had deemed as a mistake once upon a time and along came Anna, the little girl he never thought he wanted but grew to love and dote on. When her mother passed away, Anna lived with her aunt and uncle for a time and then she went off to college and joined the FBI.
She was a bright girl and she was always top of her class—she graduated High School at 16 and the FBI was glad to have her. The thing that she hadn't really banked on, was her father being in charge of his own Alpha team in the military—she hadn't banked on her father being so amazing at what he did. In fact on top of that, she'd never banked on falling in love with a member of her father's A-Team, Lt. Templeton 'Faceman' Peck—or Face as she so affectionately called him.
"Well I'm glad you did. I actually have a little down time between missions of my own so maybe you'd like to meet up and grab something to eat?" She asked him, tossing her covers off and standing up, yawning again.
Hannibal smiled and nodded. "I'm free for dinner if you are, Anna."
"I'm free as a bird all day long—call me when you get in, Dad." Anna said with a grin. "I love you."
"You too, Sweetheart." Hannibal said nodding. "Bye for now."
"Bye, Dad." Anna responded, smiling at her phone after she hung it up and then looking up abruptly as she heard a 'thunk' on her window.
Anna hurried to it in her tank and pajama pants, shaking her head and laughing as she pulled the curtain back to see Face tossing rocks at her window. He smiled up at her from his stance on the lawn and watched as she opened up the window of the small town house and leaned on the windowsill, cocking her head to one side. Her warm eyes were twinkling and her curls were a mess, but at the same time she was just as beautiful as she had been when he left her last.
The thing about Face and Anna was that Face wasn't in love with her—he thought of her as the only girl he'd ever been able to call a friend. He had been in a relationship with Charisa Sosa, and he was convinced that she was coming back to him even though Anna and the others had their doubts. In fact it was his relationship with Sosa that made Anna fall so madly in love with him…he had proven he wasn't the ladies man he used to be because he'd fallen in love and wanted a future and Sosa had run from it and now simply treated him like dirt and Anna didn't want her to come back.
Besides, even if Face hadn't gone for Sosa in the first place, he wouldn't have been able to go for Anna—she was his boss' daughter. She was beautiful and strong and independent, but Hannibal was incredibly protective of her and Face wasn't going to get on his bad side. Anna Smith was off limits and his attraction to her had to be kept in check and so he'd let her in as a friend and he was fond of her…he was attached to her even though he wasn't going to pursue her romantically.
"So how is it that you're already here but Dad isn't yet?" Anna asked him, cocking her head to one side.
Face shrugged and smiled up at her with that grin that made her knees weak. "Maybe he has some things to take care of and all I have to do is take you out to breakfast."
"What if I have a date for breakfast already, Face?" Anna asked him with a cheeky smile and a shrug.
"You don't." Face replied, shrugging back at her. "Trust me, I know."
Anna rolled her eyes and laughed playfully. "You don't know anything about me, Face."
"Just grab a coat and get down here so we can go eat." Face said as he turned to head to the car.
Anna laughed and looked down at her ensemble as Face opened up his car door and started laughing, Face turning to her and leaning on the car. Her laugh always made him feel like he was safe and wanted and he couldn't help but grin some more as she motioned to her outfit. Honestly he felt like she looked great, but he had a feeling that she had some kind of cheeky comeback she wanted to try out on him and he was ready and willing for her to say something.
"I can't just go in my pajamas and have you seen my hair this morning?" Anna asked shaking her head.
Face shrugged and crossed his arms over his chest. "You look beautiful, Anna—now get your cute butt down here."
Anna rolled her eyes. "Is it just us, or are Bosco and Murdock joining us?"
"Just us." Face replied with a nod.
Anna nodded and went away from the window, grabbing her tight jeans and a cute top since it would just be her and Face. She was actually a big fan of Cpl. Bosco 'B.A.' Baracus and of Murdock, but she enjoyed her alone time with Face even though she knew there would never actually be any dating between them. They had their flirting and they were friends so they knew a lot about each other, so it was really worth the risk as far as Anna was concerned.
"Hurry up, Slowpoke!" Face called from the driveway.
Anna got ready in ten minutes—dressed, teeth brushed, hair combed and everything—and Face took her to a nearby diner. He wasn't allowed to tell her too much about the mission he'd been on with Hannibal, Bosco and Murdock, but he told her a little bit and then asked about her. It felt rather weird for him because he wasn't used to caring and sharing this much with women, but at the same time it felt kind of natural.
"I'm surprised you went for pancakes when you could have had eggs." Anna said, stealing a bite of pancake off of his plate and laughing when he went to smack her hand. "Way to hit a girl, Face—you're so abusive."
Face rolled his eyes. "You could totally hold your own against me so I really don't see a problem with hitting you for stealing my food—in the wild I'd fight you."
"In the wild you'd have brought me the food and we'd prolly just mate and get it over with." Anna replied, laughing a little when Face looked a little shocked.
She'd always had a mouth on her, but he hadn't expected the last statement to come out of her mouth and soon he was laughing too. Then they finished up their breakfast and took a walk in the park, Face glancing at her and nodding as she told him about her partner on her last mission. Like him, the details weren't allowed to be discussed, but he kind of enjoyed hearing about how much she disliked the last pairing she had been part of against her will.
"He was just incompetent." Anna said shrugging, looking at Face and blushing a little bit. "A little like you only not as cool."
Face rolled his eyes and pushed on her shoulder. "I hate you."
"I hate you so much more." Anna replied as she pushed on his shoulder back. "So why'd you really come and see me, Face? I figured you'd be trying to come up with some kind of scheme to get Sosa back or something."
"No…no I'm done with that." Face admitted with a nod, the smile off of his face. "I kind of realized that she's not coming back. I thought she might, but she won't."
Anna reached out and took his hand, giving it a squeeze and knowing that she wasn't going to ever not be by his side. Face smiled at her and then found himself lacing his fingers with hers, Anna trying her hardest not to let him know that the gesture gave her a little bit of hope. It was purely friendship from his end and she respected that, but for some reason she felt like she might have an in every time he showed her slightly flirtatious behavior.
"I want ice cream." Anna told him suddenly.
Face rolled his eyes at her again. "God, you're always eating."
"I hate you." Anna said playfully, dragging him over to an ice cream vendor, still holding his hand.
"You adore me." Face replied as he pulled out some money with his free hand, Anna just smiling because he really didn't understand how true that was.
