"There is no phrase without a double meaning." African Proverb
I could feel cold metal against my body. I slowly pried my eyes open. For a while I couldn't see staright. When my sight was finally restored I could see that I was tied to a chair. I could feel the cold metal cuffs around my wrists. The walls were made of concrete and so was the floor. There were no windows or the stupid classic mirror-window trick. However there was a camera.I studied the room and try to figure out were I was, but I couldn't. My head hurt badly. I had a really bad headache and I felt like I had to throw up. I was sick I could taste the contents of my stomach in my mouth, as it came up it burned my neck, but it never came out. I yelled out for someone, but know one came. I soon found myself trying to sleep again, I couldn't bare with the pain my headache caused me so I closed my eyes and went to sleep again.
Michael hadn't gotten the news yet of Sydney's...Julia's capture yet. In fact the agency had no intentions of telling him. As far they knew, this no longer concerned him any more. Afterall if he knew this would only bring back memories, both good and bad. However Jack had other plans. He believed that Vaughn being there might help bring back Sydney.
After what Michael had told Jessica that night, things were a little strained between them. Jessica had accused him of still loving Sydney, which he didn't deny. He told her that he'd always have a place for Sydney in his heart but that didn't change things between them, he still loved Jessica and he still wanted to marry her, or at least he told himself that. After seeing Sydney that night a couple months ago and the weeks after that he couldn't stop thinking about her more than ever. Was she alright? Was she alive? Was she dead? Who knew.
It was another usual morning for Michael. He would wake up at seven thirty. Take a shower. Shave. Eat breakfast drink a cup of coffee. Read the newspaper and head for work. Jessica would pretty much do the same thing. Except she never drank coffee. She'd usually drink green tea or earl grey and head to work a little after Michael had.
He'd take his car, she'd take hers and they were off to their separate day lives. When Sydney was still alive they'd go to work together. Sometimes they'd take his car, other times they'd take hers. They saw each other pretty much all day and he'd loved that. With Jessica they'd part at eightish in the morning and he wouldn't get back until like ten O'clock or eleven.
When he finally arrived at work he was greeted by Eric. "Hey man, how are things going around at home, everything ok with you and Jess?" Eric asked. Michael just looked down and then finally replied, "As good as things can go I guess." He replied hoping to soon drop the subject. "So what's new around here, anything interesting happen lately, huh?" He asked. "Answereing my questions with a question much?" He joked. "For the record a lot has changed, well actually one thing but it's a huge thing, really huge, I mean this thing makes Godzilla look like a pea, I mean man if you..." He trailed off after Vaughn interuppted him. "What are you talking about Weiss?" He asked. "Look all I can say is either speak to Jack or Kendall." And he walked off. "Weiss." Vaughn called. "What's going on?" Eric stopped and turned around. "I told you, talk to Kendall or Jack, they'll explain." And this time Eric walked off.
Michael walked around the CIA operations looking for Jack or Kendall or maybe both. He almost seemed to have gone in circles three times before he found Jack talking to a junior agent. He walked over to him and Jack excused the agent. "What is now agent Vaughn, if you could make this short I have important things to do today, I'd rather you not waste any more of my time." He said curtly. Michael found no humor in Jack's words. "What's going on, Weiss told me that something was going on he di..." He began but Jack him off. "What did Agent Weiss tell exactly?" Jack answered his voice raised a little. "Weiss didn't tell me anything, that's why I'm asking you." He replied. "Let's just say Agent Vaughn that somethings are above...what is it called...your pay grade...and to top that off it's been classified Omega-17." Jack said about to walk away. "Is it about Sydney?" He asked Jack, stopping him in his tracks. "Like I said Agent Vaughn the matter at hands is classified, Omega-17." And he turned around again. Vaughn knew that Jack was referring to Sydney. "Can I see her?" He asked. But Jack didn't reply he just kept on walking away. Next Vaughn was going to find Kendall and beg him to le him see Sydney. He searched around, asking around and was told by a couple of people that Kendall was 'busy', he knew what that meant, Kendall was with Sydney.
I woke up to the loud sound of metal doors closing and opening. I lifted my head slowly and looked up to find a bald man starring at her. He stood at the door then made his way across the room to the table that was infront of her. He just looked at her. For awhile he didn't speak, he just stood there starring at her with his cold dark eyes. "So Julia..." He began. She didn't say anything to him she just looked at him with her cold brown eyes. "You're the great Julia Thorne I've heard about, you know they say a lot about you, I'm glad I can finally have the chance to meet you myself, face to face." He said pulling up a chair and sitting in it on the opposite side of the table. "Who do you work for?" He asked. She just starred at him. He picked up a manilla folder and opened and slid it across the table to me. There was a man in the picture. It was Fischer. "Do you know him?" He asked her. I shook my head in agreement. "Who do you work for?" He asked again. I sat there for awhile, then I spoke. "MI-6." She replied dryly. "MI-6?" He questioned back. He was in utter disbelief. "You expect me to believe that you work for MI-6?" He asked her. She nodded. "How long have you been working for them?" He asked her. "A couple months." She replied firmly. "Our intel suggests that you're an enemy of the United States of America." He says lifting an eyebrow. "I am." She replies. Kendall was confused he had no idea what she was talking about. "Fill me in here, and tell if I'm wrong...you work of British Intelligence, but you're also and enemy of the US government, how does that work?" He asked. She looked up at Kendall with a wide grin and replied, "I'm a double agent." "You're a double agent." He almost laughed. "Yes, I'm a double agent." She replied.
