Summary: Michael has to keep Sam and Fiona under control before a mission.


"Details, details, Michael. Can't we just blow them up?" Fiona stalked around the bar, reaching into the refrigerator for a yogurt.

Sam tossed his hands in the air. "Fi, you've gotta get a new line."

"It's a good question, Sam." Peeling the top off the cup, she dipped a spoon into it and sucked the yogurt off, watching me for some kind of reaction.

I wasn't going to give it to her. Well, not the one she wanted. "No bombs, Fi."

She pouted as Sam said, "Finally. Someone with some common sense."

"Remind me I don't want to work with you again, Sam."

He pointed at her. "Consider yourself reminded, sister."

I let them squabble. A little bit of tension was a good thing before a job. A little too much, though, could pose a problem. If they got it out verbally beforehand, I wasn't going to complain.

Out loud, at least. But enough was enough and it was time to get going.

I plastered a grin on my face, turning to them both. "All right, kiddies. Who's ready to go get some bad guys?"

The resulting moves toward the door was all the answer I needed.
