Dani didn't understand why Mr. McClane, Connor, she had been corrected, was doing this. He had handed her an envelope and told her that she needed to know who she was working with. He knew she was nosy and wanted to head it off. It had only been a week that she had worked for the man and she still didn't know quite what to make of him.
Inside the enveloped, he had told her, was information on a man she thought she knew. He had told her that she needed to decide which side she wanted to be on. Someone was trying to take down V3 and he wanted to know whom he could trust.
When she had asked who the envelope, the stuffed manila envelope, was on he had smiled at her and said "you already know."
Dani had taken the envelope and put it in her purse. She had had it for a week and didn't know what to do with it. She thought she knew who was in it. She knew that she wanted to talk to the man in question about it and although she wanted to know about him, this was not the way she wanted to find out about it.
She was contemplating this as she rounded the corner and ran right into Nico. His arms steadied her as she teetered on her ridiculously high shoes.
"Still wearing those death-traps I see." Nico quipped, releasing her after he had ensured she was not going to fall over.
"Very funny. Nico I really need to talk to you." Dani looked up at him.
He could see something was bothering her. "Not now. But we will in due time."
"No Nico. Don't avoid me, this is important. Please." Dani reached out for his arm as he tried to sidestep her.
"I have to go Doctor." He successfully stepped around her, noticing the hurt look on her face as she walked away.
I need to figure out how to talk to him about this. It's important I don't know who to trust.
I need to figure out what she wants so that I can stonewall her. And I need to figure out what's wrong with her so I can fix it, among my many other problems.
