That afternoon, Will met with the captain and chief. Once they were all comfortable, he brought out a disk. Showing it the other men, he started to play it.

On the screen, it showed Will and Alex sparring. He skipped the first few scenes, to the part where Bailey had come in. Pausing it, Will smiled at his superiors.

"It gets better. Watch," he said, hitting play, again. What they saw was Alex and Will sparring with each other, with a blurred Bailey popping in every once in a while. There were times when he would get attacked by Alex's energy, and seemingly disappear.

Will hit stop on the DVD player, shaking his head. "We couldn't catch him. Not once."

The chief didn't as enthusiastic. "I don't know. He looks like all the other speedsters we have come across. How much does he eat?"

The captain frowned. He knew the chief was going to act that way. "He eats about as much as any other speedster, but I think S.T.A.R. might make enough to handle the cost. The more pressing matter is whether he would make a good agent, since he is reluctant to join us."

"Well, he's been through a hell of a lot," Will placed the disk back in its case. "Especially being a regular college kid. I think I would have broken, by now."

The captain nodded. "That's true," he sighed, looking at the chief. "What do you think?"

The chief shook his head. "He's fast, and he could be very useful. However, it's still up to the higher authorities."

Will smiled. "Are we done, then?"

The chief smiled at Will. "Yes, Agent Mathias. Thank you for getting this for us."

Will sighed. "No problem."


That evening, the department received a call that it was clear to move in on Bailey's kidnappers. A S.W.A.T. team and one of the teams from S.T.A.R. were sent to handle it. The chief also sent Will, since he had the ability to read what was happening. Alex was not required, but was on call if things turned ugly and got out of hand.

The arrest went smoothly, since the men surrendered immediately. They were still denying any involvement with Bailey, claiming they were innocent. The S.W.A.T. team arrested them on speculation, while S.T.A.R. stood by.


While they were gone, Bailey found Alex in his room. "Hey, would you like to go do something?"

Alex smiled up from the book he was reading. "Sure. What did you have in mind?"

Bailey shifted nervously. "Well, have you eaten yet? We could go grab a bite and, I don't know, got to a movie or something."

It was Alex's turn to look nervous. "Uh...sure. Sounds great."

Bailey smiled shyly. "Cool. I'll go get ready, then." He walked out, closing the door behind him.

As soon as he was gone, Alex found a nice, but casual dark red shirt and black jeans. Checking his beeper, he used cologne, then went out to meet Bailey.

When Alex went downstairs, he found Bailey waiting for him, wearing dark blue jeans and a black button up with blue, fighting dragons on it. He looked very nice, but Alex just smiled at him.

"Shall we?" He grinned. "We can take Will's truck or my bike, whichever you want."

Bailey glanced at him. "The bike sounds more fun, and it wouldn't waste as much gas."

Alex nodded. "True."


During dinner, they talked about childhood and family, learning more about each other. They also talked about hobbies and several other topics, and found out they had a lot in common. Once they were done, they went to the movie, which was an action movie.


When they got back to base, Bailey followed Alex to his door.

"I had fun tonight," he smiled at the black haired man.

"I did, too. We should do that again some time," he stared at Bailey, searching for words. Not finding any, he just smiled again.

Bailey took a deep breath, then looked up at Alex. "I'm leaving in the morning, to visit my sisters. I haven't seen them in two years, and still have a lot to think about.

I'm really glad I had the chance to get to know you." Before Alex could protest, Bailey kissed him quickly on the lips. When he pulled away, Alex looked surprised for a moment, then kissed him back. This time, he ran his hands through the other man's hair, kissing him deeply.

When they finally broke off, Alex smiled at him. "I wish you didn't have to leave, but I understand wanting to see family. Goodnight," he said, kissing him again, this time lightly.

Bailey stared at him. "I'll keep in contact. Thank you for everything. Goodbye," he said, leaving.

"Bye, Bailey," Alex said softly. "Be careful."

"You, too," Bailey smiled back at him.
