Spies Know No Love
I woke up to my alarm going off on my nightstand. I groaned and slapped my hand on my phone to cut it off. Why must it be so early? I rolled over to my side and stretched, letting my bones and muscles wake up from a slumber that resulted in drool and matted hair. I got up and walked to the bathroom, when I heard my shower running. I grabbed the nearest weapon, which turned out to be a pen and prepared myself for the attack. I grabbed the handle and suddenly heard singing coming from my shower. I knew that voice. I burst in and pulled the shower curtain back to find Dimitri, sudsy and singing into my shampoo bottle.
“Holy shit Scarlet! You scared the piss out of me.” He exclaimed. I dropped the pen.
“I scared you? What are you doing in my house? What are you doing in my shower?” I asked.
“They cut off my water again to fix the pipes, and I know where you hide the spare key. I knew you wouldn’t mind best friend who I love very much.” He replied. I grabbed my towel and started undressing and let my hair down from the bun that it was in. “Hey what are you doing?” He asked.
“Might as well save water while I’m at it. And besides, it’s not like you haven’t seen me naked before.” I hoped in and let the hot water take over. Yeah, I know it’s unethical to shower with your male best friend/partner, but when you’ve been through shit together, you’re just that close.
“May you please unlatch my shampoo from your hands please?” I asked grabbing the shampoo bottle from Dimitri’s grasp and started lathering it through my hair.
“Someone’s a little irritated? Still haven’t gotten laid yet I see.” I rolled my eyes. We’ve been through this a hundred times before.
“How many times do I have to tell you, I don’t have time for a man. I don’t want one either.” I said rinsing the shampoo from my hair and reaching for the conditioner. Dimitri blocked it from me and crossed his arms. Since when did he get so muscular?
“You know you could actually have some fun right? The Society does allow for that sort of thing. Meet a nice guy, have some drinks and really kinky sex will follow.” I sighed and reached around him and grabbed the bottle.
“I don’t want to have drinks, and I don’t want to have kinky sex. I just want to focus on the mission that they gave us. You should be doing the same.” I said putting the conditioner through my hair. I heard him sigh and opened the curtain to step out. The cold air made me shudder, so I quickly rinsed my hair and stepped out onto the towel I had on the floor. I dried my hair and body and wrapped the towel around me and went into my room to get ready for the day. I picked out dark blue jeans, a maroon tank top and a tan cardigan to wear. I put on everything and brushed my teeth, and hair to let it air dry. I had on nude makeup and was ready to go when Dimitri walked up behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist.
“Let’s go out tonight. Rose wants to see you and I feel like going out will do some good. What do you say? Please? For me?” He begged. I rolled my eyes.
“If I go out, you have to promise me you won’t try to hook me up with anyone, got it?” I said looking in the mirror. I saw him smile and hugged me.
“I promise from the bottom of my heart. Now let’s go eat, I’m starving.” He said running from the bathroom to the living room. I laughed. I grabbed my purse, which contained my phone, keys and glasses and walked out to the living room. I saw Dimitri typing on his phone rapidly.
“Who are you typing so fast for?” I asked. He quickly shoved his phone in his pocket and shook his head.
“No one my dear.” Now let’s go!” He said opening up the door and let me walk past him. We got in my Nissan Maxima and got to the café in less than 10 minutes. We ordered our food and sat down waiting for the waitress to bring it to us. We haven’t even been here less than 2 minutes and Dimitri has somehow gotten all three girls working there flirting and giggling with him.
“How do you do that? One day, you’re going to find a girl and you’re going to fall in love and won’t even think about flirting with any other female. Ever.” I said teasing him.
“Harsh words, my dear. You know I am people pleaser. In that, a woman pleaser. I would never limit myself to one flavor when I can have all of them.” He winked and I gaged. I looked at my phone and saw Dr. Randel had emailed me about our next location; Berlin, Germany.
“Looks like we’re headed to Berlin. Our flight leaves tomorrow night.” I said as our food arrived. Dimitri ordered an everything bagel with cream cheese and a black coffee, while I ordered an egg white omelet with spinach and tea. How British of me, right?
“Ah, Berlin.” He said with a mouth full. “So what’s the assignment?”
“Didn’t say, must be top secret. Either way, you’re not drinking like you do every other day. We need to be ready to go as soon as Randel gives the okay.” I said taking bites out of my omelet. He nodded and kept eating. We ate in silence until we got finished, paid our bill and headed out to my car when I slammed into a body spilling my to go tea all over me.
“Oi, watch where you’re going next time!” I yelled at the body in front of me. Luckily I just got the tea on my coat and not on my shirt.
“Shit, sorry. Alan pushed me and didn’t see you in front of me.” I heard a deep voice say. I looked up and starred right into piercing chocolate eyes.
“It’s okay, I just got it on my coat. Good thing it isn’t chilly out.” I stumbled with.
“Well than I must change this to a happy accident then.” He said smiling. I caught myself before I said something stupid and nodded and walked around him heading for my car. I felt him grab my hand and I spun around ready to karate chop him in his throat but he let go.
“Woah, easy there. I’m not gonna hurt you. What’s your name?” I eased up and looked at Dimitri who was smiling this whole time. He motioned for me to continue and I shook my head.
“Scarlet. Well it was nice meeting you. Have a good day!” I turned on my heels and walked quickly to my car trying to shake this feeling I had of throwing up. I heard Dimitri apologize for my spazzing out and asked what his name was. Before I closed the door, I heard him reply.
“It’s Austin. Austin Carlile.”
Well there you have chapter 2! Sorry it's kinda short, I promise next chapter will be long!
