Date: Spring 2012 Characters: Candice Wilmer, Dae-Mun 'Jimmy' Lee Summary: Nighttime at the office, or how operatives kill time in between missions. Warnings: -- Status: Complete Open to the office
They worked twelve hour shifts on a day to day basis, but occasionally, they pulled all nighters too. It helped to be used to the workload and the stress when you had to deal with a crisis. Rebels and militia men didn't care if you hadn't slept in days when they set whole buildings on fire. The government knew this. Parkman knew this. It was why there were showers and rooms with bunk beds for nights like these, when she couldn't be bothered to go home and she couldn't stand seeing the same office, the same for walls, again.
Sitting on the top bunk, feet dangling off the side, Candice made a note on a file she wasn't supposed have seen and flipped through to the casualty list for the latest bombing. Fifty dead, twice as many wounded and only a few of them were like her.
"What a waste," she sighed, checking the time on her cell again. One hour 'till the next briefing.
