She smiled back, though she was once again numb, this time for an entirely different reason. She stood, spun on her heel and headed for the door. She was almost out of his office when she heard him say something into the phone about cookies. Her ears homed in almost automatically to his voice, only in time to hear him say, "Tell her no. After dinner."
Her footsteps faltered, hearing the odd conversation, but she kept going. Cookies? And who was she? She felt a surge of...something, and quickly quashed it. What had she just gotten herself into?

Walking back to her apartment on base that night her heart had been pounding. What was she so afraid of. He wasn't going to find anything out. If he asked any questions, she was more than capable of dodging them. She'd been doing it her entire military career. Her entire life.
Still tomorrow, and the end of her shift at the gatehouse, rolled around entirely too quickly. She said goodbye to her duty partner, Tucker, who was going to cover for her until the relief officers arrived (she made a mental note to write up the relief officers for being late), and stepped out of the gatehouse. She might as well have been stepping off the edge of a cliff. At least, that was what it felt like.
Climbing into her jeep, she was nervous. She wondered if she had time to swing by her apartment and change into dress attire. It would be proper for meeting with her CO. But then wasn't this supposed to be casual? She didn't remember him saying so. Glancing at her watch, she saw that she would be late if she took the time to change. Great...

David was making dinner and waited for the babysitter to get there and take his daughter for the night but she was late. He sighed and heard something and ran out of the kitchen " lizzy what did you do?"
Lizzy looked at him " nuffin" she walked backwards away from him.
He gave her a look and started walking to her and she took off and thats when he seen it " LIZZIE!" he yelled and then cleaned up the mess " young lady you know better" he sighed as a headache came all of a sudden and he walked away.

You can be reckless at times but it's only because you'd do anything for the ones you love. Plus you really enjoy beating up the bad guys.

She decided to forgoe the dress uniform. Their meeting yesterday, and this dinner invitation, were anything but formal. It still made her nervous, not knowing what he was going to expect of her. God all she wanted was to be a good cop. Why did it have to be so complicated?
Pulling the jeep into the driveway at Carter's building, she killed the engine. Had she just heard him yelling?
