1900 Hours

"Alright, I'm gunna need you to take off your shirt."


"You heard me."

"Why would I need to take off my shirt?"

"Well, for one, I need to check for tracking devices. Two...I just want to see you shirtless."

She flushes and immediately she steps back with a hand on her chest. "What the hell— I am not taking off my shirt!"

"Well, if you really want to die, then go ahead..."

"What?" Her eyes widen. "What do you mean?"

I smirk. "They placed a tracking device on you. Or well, maybe even in you. And I feel like it's somewhere near your breasts. I am a professional, so if you just let me handle them—this— then—"

"There is no tracking device on me, is there?" She interrupts, her eyes narrowed at me.

I grin. She is too fun. "Well, shit. You caught me." I walk towards her and push a strand of her long hair out of her face. "I took it off when you were under me, right after you fell for me."

And right after that, I feel an intense pain coming from my balls. "What the fuck is wrong with you?" I growl while crouching and grabbing them.

Glaring up at her, I see her snarling as she lowers her knee. "I told you to stop with the innuendos, you perverted jackass!"

"You fucking dyke!" I growl back, standing taller, but not to my full height. "What the fuck is your knee made of? Titanium?" I take a deep breath as I try to subdue the pain with some rubbing.

She frowns and turns around to walk away.

"Hey, just where the fuck do you think you're going?" She doesn't turn around. "Hey, bitch! I'm talking to you!"

She turns around with a ferocious look on her face. "Home! I'm going home! I don't want to be 'protected' by a jackass like you!" She huffs angrily. "Just looking at you pisses me off! I'm not saying I'm not thankful for what you did, but you can leave me alone now. I'm fine by myself!"

I breathe out the air I was holding in and stand up to my full height, clenching my jaw at her statement. "Are you fucking crazy? CI5 is basically under attack, the best of the best agents are suddenly going missing, and Raze is lurking in every fucking corner of this goddamn city!" I yell, stomping towards her. She doesn't move nor flinch.

"You're fucking stupid if you think you can just walk around without a care in the world! You're a target for some unknown fucked up reason, and I need to keep you safe because I was under direct orders from the chief. So shut the fuck up, you ignorant little bitch, and shut the fuck up."

She stares at me. We're both silent for a while, and all you can hear is me catching my breath after using it all to scream at her. Her eyes look surprised, but I knew better when it came to this girl. She looked like she was deep in thought, and God, it pissed me off. She always looks like she's thinking about something.

I breathe angrily. Lately, I've been angrier than usual, and most of the time it's because of this girl. Coincidence? I don't fucking think so. I'm at the point of my anger where I think I'll just attack her, just because she's there. So, she better not talk, or I swear if she says one more goddam word, I will kill her myself.

"You told me to shut up twice in one sentence—" Are you fucking kidding me?

"—What the hell did I just tell you?—"

"—And it sounded like a really awkwardly put together sentence—"

"—I said it twice for a fucking reason," I snarl, grabbing onto her shoulders. "So you would shut the fuck up." She blinks up at me. "So, shut the fuck up!"

Frowning visibly, she pushes my hands off of her shoulders forcefully, and it pisses me off.

I am about to punch this bitch in the face. I'ma do it. I will fucking do it.

"Don't touch me! I told you, that I'm going home! I don't need your protecting. You nearly got us killed on multiple occasions because of your brash decisions!"

I clench my teeth. "Those 'brash decisions' saved your fucking life!"

She lets out a frustrated sigh. "You're missing the point here! Just being with you gets me into more danger! Like, when we were in that building—"

"—Are you serious right now? I explained to you before, we had to jump. Did you really want to stay in a collapsing building? Does that make sense, Miss 'I'm So Fucking Smart and Safe?' What would you have done? Take the stairs?"

The girl raises a clenched fist and places it right in front of my face. "Don't insult me! I am not stupid!"

I snort. "Doesn't fucking seem like it, now does it?"

"What did you say?!"

I lean forward with a smug look. "Did I stutter?"

"Ugh!" She face palms. Who face palms? "You are the most immature, conceited, self-absorbed jackass I have ever met!"

"And you're a bitch."

"Why couldn't Alistar have been assigned to me instead? He was such a—" she bites her lip, "….not a jackass," she finishes, staring up at me with a taunting look as she crosses her arms.

I scoff and smirk widely when I hear her trying to cover herself. "No offense to Alistar, but despite him being my best friend, he's more suited for the…technician department."

"Then what was all that muscle for?"

I smirk. "Emergency. And you call me perverted? If you checked him out, you must be dying to have sex with me right now. I mean I wouldn't mind, I'm really stressed right now, so—"

I was interrupted when hands were pressed against my mouth. I look down at the flushed girl. "You are a disgusting pig! And I am nothing like you! I have manners and I would not openly ogle someone like you!"

I stare at her in amusement, and she quickly removes her hand from my mouth. As she is practically sizzling from all the blushing, I answer her 'insults'.

"So you admit that you ogle people in private?"

"Of course that would be the first thing that came to your mind," she says while rolling her eyes.

I smirk. "Hey, agents always look between the lines."

She rolls her eyes. "You mean jackasses?"

I frown. "No. I mean agents."

She smirks. "Okay, okay. Fine." I give her a smug look. So, she finally agrees. That was easier than usual. Before I could gloat, she opens her mouth to continue talking. "Agent Jackass." My smile instantly slips.

I knew it was too fucking easy.
