The mission had left her tired. She felt like she could sleep all day. When she finally had the courage to open her eyes, she realized it was almost 4pm. She had slept the day away.
The ringing of her phone caused her to jump. She would never be able to hear a phone ring without being startled. She picked up the phone and heard, "Danielle." She started to rise and answered back, "I'll be right there."
She showered quickly. She knew that O'Brien wouldn't want to be kept waiting long. She found something red to wear to celebrate Valentine's Day. She looked at herself in the mirror, liked what she saw and turned to leave the room.
She walked through CLHQ and realized how quiet it was. All the girls must be getting ready for their Valentine's Day dates. She knew she would get all the gossip tomorrow. She had O'Brien on her mind now; she didn't want to keep him waiting.
She poked her head into O'Brien's office. "Hey, what's up?"
He looked up from his computer and said, "Hate to drag you away from your many Valentine's Day dates babe, and I hope I'm not cramping your style, but we’ve got a mission to prep."
She closed the door behind her and got to work.
