I don't own 24
After thirty minutes passed, Meg and Jack finally arrived at Ricker's apartment. The two agents quickly climbed up the stairs and then entered Ricker's apartment. When Meg walked in, she saw a man that was sitting chair turning around and looking at them. "Yo, what's up Jack's friend?" Meg said as she walked up to him and held her hand in the air to give him a high five. Ricker looked at her. "Come on don't leave me hanging."
Ricker looked at Jack that was behind Meg. "Who is she?" he asked him.
"The daughter of a friend," Jack said as he walked up to Ricker.
"'Of a friend?'" Meg repeated, "dude, you were doing her...or vise versa...which ever makes sense but that is not a friendship. That's a relationship."
"Meg please shut up," Jack shouted at her. He turned his attention back to Ricker who had a facial recognition picture pulled up on the computer. While he was in the taxi with Meg, he had sent the video to Ricker and told him to run a facial recognition on the man that was in the room with Dana Walsh and he had. Jack looked at the picture closely and found out that it was the guy that shot Meg and almost killed Renee. His name was Pavel Tokarev and he had the face of a sick man and a killer.
"I need to make a phone call," Jack said as he pulled his phone out of his pocket. He typed in the number of a reporter that was a woman. This woman that Jack was calling was Meredith Reed and he was going to ask her for help to leak evidence into the press that the people who were going to kill Omar were also Russians.
"Me too," Meg said as she pulled out her own phone also.
"Who are you going to call for God's sake?" Jack asked her.
"I think we all know that answer to that," Meg said as she dialed a number and put the phone on her ear.
"Yeah of course," Jack said, "Cutie."
"No," Meg said, "I am going to call the shoe department because these shoes are sucking the soul out of my feet," she said as she held up her foot and looked at Dana's shoes that she was wearing.
Jack looked at her and shook his head. "Hello," he said when Meredith Reed answered. He began talking with the reporter. Meg, being a curious girl and all, walked up to Jack and put her ear close to the phone. Jack pushed her away but Meg insisted to listen to what they were saying. "JUST GET OUT OF HERE!" Jack yelled at Meg.
"What?" Meredith said on the other end.
"No not you," Jack said as he pushed Meg away from him, "I was just talking to some idiot."
"Hey," Meg said in an offended tone of voice, "that's not nice. Who do you think you are to call me that?" she asked as she put her hands on her hips and pouted at Jack.
Jack just ignored her and continued to talk with Meredith. After he finished, he turned around and looked at Ricker. He told him that they had to receive Meredith Reed and take her to a mall where Jack would tell her about the conspiracy.
"We're going to the mall?" Meg asked with a lot of enthusiasm. "WHOO!" she yelled as she shot up her fist in the air, "I am going to-"
"We are not looking for shoes," Jack told her.
"Damn it," Meg whispered as she stomped her foot on the floor, "ow!" she yelled as the pain from her foot shot up in her leg.
After gathering their equipment Jack, Ricker, and Meg left the apartment and went to go to the mall where they would Meredith. They got into Ricker's car and they drove to the mall. When they arrived, Jack and Meg went to the upper floor of the mall where they found Meredith that was looking for them. Jack and Meg walked behind the shoppers so they wouldn't be spotted by any Russians that were going to ambush them.
When Jack and Meg met up with Meredith. But, when they did, shots were fired around the mall. The shoppers began to panic as they ran around the mall to get out. Jack pushed Meredith and Meg behind a clothes rack. "Stay there!" he yelled at them as he ran into the open and began to shoot at the attackers.
Meredith's heart was beating rapidly. She flinched when she heard the gun shots. "So," she heard Meg say as she looked up at her, "what do you do for a living?" she asked as if it was just a normal day.
Meredith looked at her. "I am a reporter," she said.
"Cool!" Meg said, "I'm and agent. The one that saved the president and Cutie from bad people," she said as she gave Meredith a smile.
"You did?" Meredith asked not believing a word a word that Meg was saying.
"I did," Meg said, "I saved their butts from getting killed. Although casualties did happen along the way but thanks to my smart brain, I saved them. Not the heroic way, but the Meg way which consists of going to amusement parks and wearing cool costumes but, that's how I roll," she said as she made a circle in the air with her index finger.
Meredith looked around and heard that the shooting had stopped. The store on the upper floor of the mall was empty and Jack and Ricker walked up to Meredith and Meg holding a man in their grips. This man was Pavel and Jack was going to give him hell when the interrogating began.
