Be nice this is my first Castle story and I don't really know if I can do these characters justice unlike the superb Terri Miller and Andrew Marlowe.
And yet again Kate is in the middle of a romantic encore where there is only supposed to be two can't help but fidget with agitation as Castle breaks out in his childish smarmy grin.
Fifteen minutes before this,Castle had been late to the crime scene againKate had called him while he was out buying college books with Alexis.
A body was found at an abandoned storage locker whose owner was reported dead years with his morbid sense of humour had to smile when he heard the body was found immersed in concentrated sulfuric acid.
His 'anybody want a smoothie?' joke with respect to the condition of the body was completely lost on the stoic Lanie until he recognised an old first muse actually looking ever so sleek in her typical pencil skirt and jacket being questioned by the love of his life...wait...did he just think that?better yet why was he narrating in his head?
Back at the 12th precinct in the close confines of Captain Gates office,Jennifer Beals aka C.I.A special agent Beals was currently explaining her situation to Gates and urging Gates to understand why she lied at the crime scene as being a did not completely trust that Kate had any affiliation with the NYPD at the time of questioning.
To Gates this seemed an insult to her detctives and hinted at the ongoing feud for power between two departments.
Gates:'with all due respect agent Beals,you mean to tell me the official badge and registered standard issue weapon didnt scream cop to you?'
'Captain Gates you must inderstand I have a cover to keep as a part of a major government agency and in our line of work and with the serious nature of this op anything can appear official,documents can be altered and reproduced,identities can be assumed'
Outside the office or as Kate liked to see it,an interrogation room,Kate updated the murder board as if this case was standard and not part of a national plot to destroy America.
Castle:'wow,she's really getting a grilling in there huh?'
Kate:'great that's all we need,another department starting a power struggle,first the F.B.I now C.I.A'
'oh i don't know maybe Gates will come to realise the full resourcefulness of Jennifer, plus her position in the C.I.A could help us'
At hearing this blatant string of compliments disguised as general observation,Kate gave Castle one of her sarcastic glares.
'mmhmm not everyone wants to uncover and exploit her hidden 'assets' like you do Castle'
And thus the triumphant Queen walks to her throne passing an agitated doesn't have time for a retort however as the door to Gates' office opens and a confident agent Beals emerges as she turns to Gates,Castle and Kate see the impact of her words on the Captains face.
Kate deducts from the captains twitching eye and wide smile that agent Beals is sweetly commandeering this case while still instructing her to keep the C.I.A apprised of any updates should they this must be killing the Captain to have to submit to a higher authority,Kate thinks.
Esposito and Ryan just look on dumbfounded at what just occured,all they lacked were popcorn and soda's between felt a twinge of guilt for always did feel a great responsibility towards them and simply swore since this case started that she would not let this agent usurp her team,be it with or without Castle.
The agent is at the front of her desk now,'I wanted to thank you personally for your assistance and upkeep of confidentiality on this case'
For a minute Kate is at a loss as to who the agent is addressing because she continues to gaze at Castle.
Kate:'well I am a homicide detective and this case began with a murder so i'm just doing my job'
agent Beals:'well anyway thank youand your captain has been briefed of the sensitive nature of this case so it is of the highest importance no information is leaked-
Kate follows Agent Beals eyes to where Ryan and Esposito are sitting,both of which have all of a sudden become occupied with sorting police reprts.
Castle notices the vein in Kates head begin to bulge as the agent says this and offers to walk her is aware of the nerve agent Beals just hit but he didn't particularly want to be the victim of friendly gunfire should Kate feel like getting her gun!
How dare she order me to keep two of my closest friends and finest detectives of New York in the had to go,she grabs her jacket from the back of her chair and the elevator she hears a faint 'yo,Beckett wait up' but leaves the doors close on her guilt.
