The alarm goes off. Before opening her eyes she mentally checks for another presence.

Roy is soundly sleeping through the alarm as usual, one arm and half of a pillow obscuring most of his face.

Is the feeling that some day she'll wake up and he won't be here ever going away? would she trade it for the thrill of finding him here?

Fingers slowly dance through his hair.

"--nnnhhmmm?"

One eye hesitantly cracks open. This is obviously a ploy to get him out of bed. He's got a much better idea. That eye closes, and an arm hooks over Donna's hip, intent to keep them both where they are.

Besides, it's cold out there. Brrr.

There's a gasp and a giggle as she's pulled closer, but...

"Lian. School in an hour," she reminds.

"Again?"

Yes, five days a week.

On the other hand, how long did he pray for that eight hours a day for himself and the structure for Lian?

"Augh. Right. Getting up." He's not moving, though. "We still got those peaches in the fridge?"

She rolls over half on top of him. "Peaches and lunches made and packed in the fridge already." Why, yes, that would be a smug look.

9 AM

The Harpers have one car and they are both in it. Roy drives. Donna is checking a map.

"This says the school is 5 miles down the road and then take a left." She checks her bag. "1200 students. Hope I brought enough film."

Re: 9 AM

"Packed your backup bag. It's in the trunk." Roy is reliable husband now and again. "I think you'll be fine, besides."

He's getting a good look at the surroundings on the way. There isn't much out here, but the houses and yards are spacious. "Nice area. Reminds me of that music school in Norristown."

Re: 9 AM

"The one with the ghost or the Diablo agents that locked us in a music room?"

Ah, a childhood in capes! The door thing WAS by accident. They were investigating a lead and SLAM went the doors. She had been miffed about him wanting to go away and spend more time playing music at the time so they didn't even take advantage of the situation - much.

"Or wait...was that something else I'm forgetting at the moment?"

Re: 9 AM

A brow raises at the mention of both. He chuckles a little. "Can't remember. Geez, talk about pulling a name from the past, right?"

He's still chuckling to himself, attention drawn to traffic on the left. "Think I'd rather reminisce on that saucy little red number from the apartment."

Re: 9 AM

...

...

"You mention that dress to make me blush, don't you?"

She looks away, turns a little pink, and looks up at him shyly every single time.

Interlude - Nowhere

Agent Relztem watched them through the cameras. He had a rhyme from his daughter's brief childhood running through his mind.

Little Polly Flinders
Sat among the cinders,
Warming her pretty little toes.


Penelope had failed in her last mission. Sure, she'd managed to take the promising malaria vaccine, but these antiques still had no freak'n concept of video camera! It was a miracle she made it back with only 4 dead FBI agents dead and the slightest of traceable evidence.

Her broken leg had yet to be treated. She'd either find a way herself or die horribly. That was the nature of The Company. So was corrective action.

"They're yours, K. Your little girls." He sucks idly on a piece of candy. How do we make sure she knows better next time?"

Re: Interlude - Nowhere

"Limping around on a broken fuckin' leg? That should do it."

He's watching idly, but he's got a book held open in front of him. He ducks it down for just a second. "Pene knows how to set with wraps. She's either gonna fix it, or just leave it go and keel. With her--" The book goes back up. "Don't think she's got it in her. The other ones are gonna dog her now that she's hurt."

Re: Interlude - Nowhere

"Not help?" An eyebrow goes up. "I thought they all had this sense of 'sisterhood,' or some such." It's tempting just to crush the candy and spill the flavor all over his tongue, but patience is a virtue in his cover and his line of work.

Re: Interlude - Nowhere

He shrugs, never looking up from his page. "They're starting to get it, maybe. They know she'll drag them down. Become reliant. Something to distract their focus."

He stops reading at the end of a paragraph, his eye lingering on the last word there. "Dissension". It's such an interesting word. K closes the book up and tosses it onto a table. "We need to watch which ones help. Log it. When they do, if they offer or she asks, under what circumstances-- it's all crucial. See who's actually paying attention."

Re: Interlude - Nowhere

"And if they're developing some sort of subversion to the treatments. Dr. Psycho didn't have a lot of time with them and what Lex just needed things quick and dirty." He looks to Killswitch. "So how did you get cherry picked for this assignment? I thought you shot things for us." He's trying for a casual tone.

For a special night, there's a special dinner. Roy could've had a nice night out with the lady, but he's actually started to enjoy this domestic stuff.

He's spent a good part of the evening in the kitchen. Baby carrots, diced celery, potato halves and pot roast are on the menu tonight. There's chocolate pudding in the fridge for Lian later, but there are private dessert plans for husband and wife.

"It's as done as it's gettin'!" Dinnertime.

Mom's still on some kinda job. It's just her and Daddy right now, but he's been busy. Not like he didn't dress a little nicer and smile a little more when Mom was (nominally really) "Aunt Donna."

"Coming then!" She runs down the hall.
arsenal_arrow From: arsenal_arrow Date: November 25th, 2007 05:54 am (UTC) (Link)
"Hey hey hey, no running in the house!" he calls. He's bringing everything to the table. He puts the steamed carrots and celery down as he remembers he forgot the bread.

"Sit down, dig in, kiddo. Just getting the bread."
From: etai_yazi Date: November 25th, 2007 05:59 am (UTC) (Link)
She comes up to the table. "Since when?" She knows better.
arsenal_arrow From: arsenal_arrow Date: November 25th, 2007 06:31 am (UTC) (Link)
He raises a brow. "Since you could break something and I said so?"

He's really not worried about her breaking something material, more breaking fingers or toes running into stuff. Roy puts the serving plate of pot roast, and the tray of bread onto the table. "Besides, got a secret."

That should be enough bait. He goes about making his plate.

2100

Lian's in bed. Dishes are done. They're on the couch, snuggled in and she's massaging his arms.

"They just had to have one of Gar's old movies on tonight." Because Lian insisted on watching the really bad old thing.

Re: 2100

"It's not so bad. It reminds me of all the material I've forgotten since I last saw it. Keeps Gar on his toes."

Mmmmm, comfy place to be. Roy's still annoyed about their dessert plans getting canceled, however the hell that happened, but a night at home has been nice. He's currently dozing-- just a little!-- with his fingers running through the slight curls at the end of her hair. "I think over the weekend I should take you to tear up a floor with me. Take my girl dancing, show her off. Maybe brag a little."

Re: 2100

Probably a snafu at the restaurant. Happens.

Which is why she reaches under the couch and pulls out a small container from the Greek deli on her way home - with fork.

"Here, hold this -" While she sits on his lap.

"To a rare quiet night."

Re: 2100

"I." Roy is busy salivating over the lemon cake. His wife is the best ever. "Am the luckiest guy. Period."

Donna gets a quick but enthusiastic kiss. Maybe the night wasn't perfectly what he planned, but it's still perfect. He fidgets back into the couch to get them both comfortable, then opens the container with a look of glee. The first forkful is for the wonderful wife that picked it up. "Got a surprise for you, too."
