The ride had been utter silence. But I sat in fear the whole time, despite Fitz being handcuffed. Her eyes were on fire. First chance she gets she's going to use it to kill me. Finally we come to a stop, Hunt comes in from the cockpit. He starts talking to Fitz, until Merecase comes in, tells them to hurry up, then yanks me from my chair. We walk into the base, it was nice to see something slightly familiar. A officer rushes by, but Merecase stops him.
"Where's the Viper?" She asks.
"And Lilliana!" I pipe up. Merecase squeezes my arm as a warning.
"Uh... In The Viper's office, down there," He points to a door.
Ophelia and I sit in her office.
"I want to get back in the field. In a week I'll be fine, I just have to get my strength back up!" I plead.
"You were tortured and starved for months," She retorts. "It's going to be a while until I feel comfortable letting you back out."
"It doesn't matter if your comfortable it matters if I am and I will be. Stop babying me," I glare.
"I don't want to you to get hurt."
"I won't! This whole escapade didn't even come from being on the field, you need to trust me."
"I do trust you but it's my job to protect you and that's what I'm doing!"
"You don't need to protect me, I'm 24 years old I can handle myself."
Ophelia sighs. "Enter."
A women who I identify to be Major General Merecase enters dragging- Lex?! The Major General Hunt enters with his arm around Fitzlook! I stand up from my chair, fists clenched.
"What is she doing here," I glare at Fitz.
