|Summary: Sara gets her conformation.
Immediately he could tell something was wrong with his daughter. Never had she take such a flat tone with him, and he knew why she was now at the moment. “She’s there...isn’t she?” He asked hesitantly.
“So it’s true. What she said.” Sara asked shocked.
“Well, I don’t know what she told you but-” He was cut off with a loud voice
“DAD! People are trying to kill us! Why didn’t you tell me! You just expected me to accept all this, to accept a guard, a complete stranger! And on top of that, I was attacked today dad. I almost died today! And..and..Why didn’t you just tell me.” She finished her rant, panting and faintly could feel tears falling down her face.
“Baby girl,” he started off softly, “you're right I should've told you, but I didn’t know how. I mean, how does one tell their family someone is trying to kill them. And I know about earlier, I wish I could've done something, or get you here at the base with me but you have a life up there. But don’t worry okay, the best of the best is protecting you. She may not look much but she can do it until we can get Baqir.” He explained to her, hoping to calm her down. “This isn’t an easy thing for all of us, but we just have to do our best and hope we survive it okay?”
“Okay daddy, I love you.”
“I love you too, now go get some rest, let Alex take over and do what she is supposed to. Goodnight baby girl.”
“Goodnight daddy.” She said back, and hung up the phone. Sara took a moment to compose herself before looking over at her new companion. She was quietly sitting on the chair as before. Although her attention wasn't on Sara as she thought It would be, but she was focusing on her hands which were clasped together. She took a closer look at said hands, and noticed that they were shaking. Slowly she walked back into the living room. “Your shaking? Are you okay?”
Looking up Alex gave a grin, and immediately unclasped her hands. She stood up and stuffed them into her pockets. “Of course I’m okay, it’s me that should be asking you that. Are you okay? I know it’s a lot to take in.” She spoke softly to her.
“ I..yeah i’m okay. Well as okay as I can be in this situation. Dad says you're the best of the best and that you’ll protect me and I trust his judgement.” She said back just as softly, looking into Alex’s eyes.
“Good, always trust your father. Now,” she took a step back to get some distance between them. “we have to discuss the situation a bit. Tonight, if you don’t mind, I will be here in your place keeping watch. Tomorrow I’d like to go to the hotel I got to get my stuff. I’m going to be staying with you if you didn’t catch that. And, you're welcome to go about your daily routines but expect that i’ll be there, watching you. Okay?” Alex told her.
“It sounds good to me, um although I only have one extra bedroom, and Jane is in it. I hope the couch will be fine?” She asked hesitantly, wishing she didn’t have to give her guest the couch. Especially after she saved her.
“The couch is fine.”
“Okay, let me go get you some blankets and a pillow, I’ll be right back.” Sara told her as she walked down the hall.
Alex took the moment to study the room again. Taking in all the possible entries and exits, the windows and door both had standard locks. She gave herself a mental notice to get better locks for all of them. She was still pondering what modifications she could make to the room when Sara walked back in.
“Alright, here are the blanket and pillow.” Sara said to her as she handed them over.
“Thank you, now I suggest you get some rest. Its already 3 AM.” Alex told her.
“Yes, your right. Goodnight.” Sara wished her
“Goodnight” Alex said right back.
