The Arrangement, Part 3

Posted on Wed Oct 24th, 2018 @ 9:07am by Civilian Tamar Todd & Civilian Esperanza Roman

Mission: Every Day - March 2012
Location: Townsend Tower/Infirmary
Timeline: Wednesday, March 7, 2012/Late Evening

Esperanza waited impatiently outside the infirmary, tapping her foot. Where the hell was the boy? He’d said he needed a moment to get ready. This was his first time. Blah, blah. Esper remembered her first time. Sort of. Pretty sure she was blackout drunk. She wasn’t even sure it had been consensual.

The elevator doors opened and Esperanza stared. Sheldon stood there in a black suit and tie. His black hair was slicked with product and he positively reeked of cologne. He held a dozen red roses.

“Oh, for fuck’s sake!” Esper groaned, staring at the boy as he nervously walked down the corridor toward her. “She’s fucking unconscious, Kirkstein!”

Sheldon tugged nervously on his tie. “I...I w-w-wanted my f-first be done right. M-M-Memorable…”

Esper rolled her eyes. “Oh, it will be memorable,” she muttered, pushing open the infirmary doors. It was dark inside. No one was manning the main infirmary. Esper had already used her credentials to cut the security feed so they would have privacy. Esper led Sheldon to Mary Ellen’s room and opened the door. She turned the lights up low.

Sheldon stared at Mary Ellen lying there, so still. She was usually so full of life, of sparkle. He knew her because Reihan did. Mary Ellen didn’t usually acknowledge his existence unless she needed help with homework. And then he would bask in her radiant smile, her golden hair, lost in her blue eyes…

Esper sighed and pushed Sheldon toward the bed. “Go on.”

Sheldon stumbled forward. He took up Mary Ellen’s limp hand. “I...I...brought you flowers, Emmy,” Sheldon murmured, his stutter gone.

Esperanza went around to the other side. She pulled out a syringe and pushed it into Mary Ellen’s IV. “Give that a moment. I should bring her around.”

“Huh?” Sheldon asked, looking up, but Esperanza was already leaving. She paused in the doorway.

“Try and enjoy yourself.”

Mary Ellen sat up with a loud gasp. Sheldon and Esper both gasped as well as a sudden release of her pheromones hit them. Esper was luckily on the edge of it, but Sheldon was at ground zero, and his eyes glazed over. Mary Ellen looked at him hungrily and grabbed his tie, yanking the boy to her for a bruising kiss.

Esperanza shut the door to the sound of shirt buttons flying around the room.
