'Tell her i don't give up without a fight.'
John watched as Adile picked up her bags and walked away from him. He never thought he would let her go but he knew where he belonged and it wasn't with her. He wandered around the city for awhile, thinking of his past and the choices he made which lead him to be where he is now. Brendan Shae was his past, he had been him for 15 years and never questioned his judgement unitl he met his new team. He saw how they all worked together as unit, something which was forgien to him. The team already had their perceptions of him due to his background but he knew he would be able to help them show the units worth. But he couldn't leave Brendan behind or could he leave Adile. It wasn't till now he saw what kind of women she really was.
He stood outside Martha's front door, hesitating to knock. He took a breathe then knocked. He heard her footsteps and she opened the door. She looked a little surprised to see him.
'What are you doing? Shouldn't you be half way across the world by now?'
'Look Martha, just let explain..'
She let out a chuckle.
'Explain? Explain what? How you lied to the entire team or better yet, the police force?'
'I didn't mean for anyone to get hurt..'
'Too late for that.'
They stood in silence for a moment.
'Alright, come in.'
He followed her inside as she walked into the kitchen. She went into the cupboard and took out two wine glasses then began to pour them each a drink.
She handed him a glass.
They both took a sip, finding this equally awkward.
'I don't want to hear your apologies, you brought all this upon yourself. If you were honest with me from the begininng...'
'How was i suppose to tell you? Just walk into your office and go 'Oh by the way im still using my undercover identity to keep in touch with my girlfriend?' you would have gone striaght to the head and told him.'
'Ok, maybe i would have but you could have told me about Adile, about your relationship.'
John shook his head.
'Not even my handler knew about our relationship, do you think i would risk telling anyone about it?'
Martha took another sip of her wine.
'So, what will happen to me?'
'Well, either you tell superintendent or Anthony will if he hasn't already.'
Martha knew he regreted his actions but he brought it on himself by continuing his charade. Still she couldn't help but feel sorry for him. She put her glass down and moved towards him.
'John, if you don't tell and Anthony does you'll come off worse. The super needs to hear it from you.' She took his hand. 'and i will support you in anyway i can.'
'What? I thought you..'
'Your a good cop, i know one when i see one. They'd be idiots to let you go.'
He smiled at her.
She smiled back.
'I'm glad you didn't leave.'
They looked at each other for a moment, they knew how they felt about each other but never had the courage to see it through. John leaned in and insistantly kissed her, the kiss was soft but rough like he'd been waiting for this. Martha started to relax into it as she wrapped her arms around his neck. John slipped his hands down to her waist and pulled her in closer, never wanting to let go.
'John..' She pulled away. 'We shouldn't...'
'Why not? We both want this.'
He kissed her again.
'So what's the problem?'
'If the others..'
'Then we won't tell them, it's none of their buisness.'
Martha looked down, realising how much they both wanted this. She looked back up at him and smiled.
'Martha? Do you want to do this?'
She pulled him in and kissed him. After a moment they pulled away, resting their foreheads together and she whispered.
