“Wait till you taste dessert.” Micah said and winked. “Now… dinner. And I would suggest you eat up… you’re gonna need your strength.” and he pulled the covers off the plates. Pasta primavera with Deltan shrimp, the blue seafood setting nice against the sauteed vegetables and pasta. He looked at the dish and said “Well thats new.” and took his seat. He took a sip of wine and looked at Sha and then back down at his plate as he picked up his fork. “So what happens after this whole sh^% show is cleaned up? You have any plans?” he asked.

Grabbing a fork, Shara rather intentionally reached over. “I’m stealing a shrimp because I can. Just a warning…” she said as she speared one of the blue prawns.

Slipping the shrimp into her mouth, she took her sweet time pulling it off the tines of her fork before she set about chewing and swallowing. “Well, funny you mention it. I’ve already been desked for awhile. After my last op we all agreed that field work was no longer a good idea, despite being one of the best damn agents they have in the field.” She shrugged. “I’ve had a talk with the Admiral I’ve been working for and I’ve asked for a duty assignment. No more of this haphazard hopping about doing investigations” Her expression softened. “Faye needs to know where I am, and I want her to know.”

Micah nodded and said “I can see that. I hope you land somewhere comfortable.” and he took a bite. He chewed slowly, his eyes regarding her. He swallowed and took a sip of wine.

Not even a reaction, huh. Ah well, if Shara knew anything it was a man like Micah could play things close to the chest whenever they wanted to.

“You gonna have any free time in between? I might have a bit of something that may interest you.”

Shara grinned as she speared one of her own shrimp and some vegetables. “I’m on leave. Well earned, long-time-coming leave. Once I can officially sign off on the final report, I wanted to spend a bit more time here with Faye, but they won’t pull me for a new assignment until I say I’m ready.” It was unusual in her work, unheard of in fact. Agents like her don’t call the shots, so she knew how odd it sounded. But there were, of course, reasons.

“Leave, huh? Good.” and hebtook a bite. After a minute, he said “So once all this has settled, I’m gonna head home for a couple ‘a weeks. How’d you like to come with me? I got a eight hundred acres in the Tennessee mountains. Built me a cabin, got a great view… and closest neighbor is too far away to matter. You, me, big fire place… and before you ask, no. I dont invite just anyone. In fact… never invited anybody before. But I’d like you to come.” and he took another bite and looked at her.

The fork hovered above her plate and her just stared at him, her eyes searching ever so deeply. “Why?” she asked softly, setting her fork down and resting her hand flat on the table. Why. So many questions were embedded there, but it was too much for her own mind to parse just now. “Why haven’t you brought anyone else there? And why me?”

~Shara Calloway

Micah smiled. “Because I don’t like most people. Spend a life dealing with the crap all these species have to offer, and it kinda colors your perspective. But you…” and he shook his head as he smiled and took a drink.

“I like you, Shara. Don’t ask me why or how, but I like you. Your sharp, quick, good with the give and take, and your body is the best I’ve ever felt… no lie. Add to that that you understand my life and I understand yours? S%$t… how often either of us ever had that? Find it, hang on to it for a bit is what I say.”
