Summary: Alissa has to help an old friend when Duncan is charged by the FBI over an old death.

I'm on vacation! Doesn't that mean anything to some people?Alissa thought grumpily as she sleepily reached over to grab her cell. "This had better be good at six in the morning when I should be enjoying Corsica."

"Sorry about that, Alissa" Duncan MacLeod told her in his distinctive brogue. "I wouldn't be bothering you on your well-deserved vacation, but I really do need your help."

The tone in his voice had her summoning her tablet and switching his call to speakerphone as she turned her computer on. "What's going on, Mac?" she asked gently while pulling up information on the quickest flights back to the States.

"Well, I'm at the FBI headquarters in DC and they're accusing me of murdering Steven Keane years ago. And since the statute of limitations on murder is never..."

"Yeah, I get the hint," she agreed, mentally scrambling over in what order she should do everything she needed to do now. Taking a deep breath, she turned back to the phone. "I'm going to give a lawyer friend of mine a call to try and help you out until I can get back through Reagan. Just hold on tight until then, okay?"

"Will do, but one more question, my dear- is this a friend of yours I can trust?" Mac asked, more than a little curious.

Alissa grinned as she thought about the chaos about to be unleashed on the unsuspecting FBI office. "Oh, most definitely."
