reunion - marta/aaron
It’d been a long time since he felt comfortable to run, hiding in the darkest of places just to make sure that they didn’t find him. Aaron had been lucky, They hadn’t found him yet, but it was the CIA. They’d most likely have people watching him as he went along. It seemed that Marta had moved on, changed her name, forgotten about him like he had asked. It hurt, he wouldn’t admit that it hadn’t hurt, because it had slowly broke apart at his being from when he woke, till he slept, but in the end, That was all he had wanted, in the end. It was just for her to be safe. He had come across the speeches, the ones that Byer had given him about killing if he saw. He’d broke orders once, so why not again?
It was a risk, even being so close to land, but it was worth something, just being able to see her again. Aaron moved quietly through the New York crowd, his mind focused completely on the task. People watched, people made eye contact and Aaron shifted, his head darting from face to face. What he’d heard, was that Marta had been working with Bruce, a man who had helped him one too many times, and here he was, standing out side of the building Bruce had directed him to. Was he ready? Was he really ready to see her? Aaron wasn’t particularly sure. He just knew he had to do it. Flashing the fake pass Bruce had given him, Aaron made his way up the stairs and towards the room where Marta would most probably be.
It was so clinical, just like how it was with the program, but when the door clicked open. He turned, eyes opening slightly
Despite her best efforts, Marta never really forgot about him. How couldyou forget about someone that you had ran with, who saved your life countless times? She asked herself that question far too many times to count and even then she still failed to produce an answer.
But she had tried, tried and eventually succeeded in moving on with her life, getting a new job in a new city. Working with Bruce was not dissimilar to her old working conditions; many sleepless nights were spent in the lab as Marta tinkered around with bits and pieces of equipment that were vital to their ever-changing research. Many more sleepless nights were spent with her laying in bed with a racing mind. At times she had caught herself missing waking up next to Aaron, missing the feeling of comfort and protection that he had brought her.
The gentle sound of the opening doors snapped Marta away from her reverie. “Just put them on the table to the left,” her voice was soft, almost motherly as she didn’t bother to turn her head. After all, she had been expecting equipment for several days now.
