Director Callaway's Office
MI5 HQ - Paranormal Division
It had been a couple of days since Callaway sent out his top two operatives into the field for a test operation, and after meetings after meetings after filing and filling out paperwork on top of conference calls, the newly appointed Director Callaway had a couple of days to let the agents settle in to the thought of being partners before sending out a memorandum for them to report to him this morning. Pairing Katarina Bauer with Arlo Beckett was a strange pairing indeed, but for some reason, it made sense to him. On paper, that is. He hoped that the outspoken, headstrong analyst-turned-field op agent Bauer would be the balance to the subdued, by-the-books and former six agent Beckett, and given the report he read from their debriefing that night, he was right. Clark's notes mixed with the other agents on-site were mostly positive, aside from a slight hiccup they had towards the end.
Their stories, though told differently in debrief, were colorfully told in their own special sort of way, but they corroborated one another so that was a good sign in itself. However, Callaway stared at the bottom of the report after Beckett left the test site.
Agent Samar Bazeeri reports:
Agent Beckett utilized his abilities to transport himself to a location clear across docks, and Agent Bauer went in pursuit. Roughly twenty-seven minutes passed during their time away from the test-site and when they returned, it appeared Bauer had sustained a minor injury to her left ankle.
What was he after? What did they see that kept them away that long from Clark and the others? What happened to Bauer's foot? At first, he dreaded the worst. Was it Matt? God, he hoped not. That would be the last person he'd want them to see--especially for Katarina's sake.
Cole sighed and set the file on his desk, setting his glasses off to the side as he pinched the bridge of his nose. He peeked up at the clock and noticed that it was just six minutes to nine, and hoped they would get here soon. The sooner, the better.
