While I’m confident that Deeks’ current separation from NCIS will be temporary, I feel bad that he’s so upset by it. And if I’m wrong, the thought of being married to Special Agent Deeks has its appeal. I get that he’s worried NCIS could send him anywhere, but with Hetty’s pull and some well-worded letters of recommendation from Callen and Sam, I can’t see any reason he wouldn’t be assigned to OSP.
And since I am sure Deeks won’t be gone from the team for long, I felt absolutely no guilt enjoying the peace and quiet of working alone for part of the day. Deeks would have been the perfect foil for that un-freaking-believably arrogant and annoying lawyer I had to talk to, though.
No matter how much I savored my alone time the best part of the day was telling Deeks about it, even though he is clearly jealous of my ever-improving sense of humor (but he really shouldn’t be, since it’s all due to his influence). Which reminds me, if worse comes to worst and I need a new partner for a while, I think I’d like to work with Fatima because she really appreciates my wit (oh and obviously it would be nice to mentor another woman in the field).
Damn, I just realized I forgot to tell Deeks about Callen rolling out of the Hellcat and coming up behind the commander. That was a sweet move, and my hubby will be sad he missed it. On second thought, maybe I should keep it to myself for now; knowing Deeks he’ll want to try it himself. Instead I think I’ll try to cheer him up with more gnome-based humor… 😀
