(Author’s Note – Hey, look! It’s the chapter that almost killed yours truly! Dear Lord this one was hard to write. Oh, and I’ve got five or six more to go! WOOOO! rides into the sunset)
As soon as the sun peeked above the clouds, the girls got up and told Jacob they were staying with the mission.
Glad to hear it! Take your time with breakfast this morning. Weve got an assignment for later tonight. Briefing is at 1000 hours.
One thousand hours? asked a perplexed Alex.
Thats ten in the morning.
Oh yeah, I knew that!
The girls were feeling like their old selves again. For now they didnt concern themselves with the vicious Stephen or the danger their home was in. For once they felt like normal teenagers instead of world-class spies. Even with Jacob and dozens of WOOHP staff around them eating breakfast in the cafeteria, they didnt feel the weight of the operation. Their cheery disposition lifted everyone elses spirits, and they saw a few more smiles on the staffs faces. Even if it was for just a little while, Alex was her old clumsy yet cheerful self, Clover was the beautiful drama queen, and Sam was the intelligent moderate again.
