“Why didn’t you tell me? I need to know about potential security issues.”

“Becker, since when has an allergy been a security issue?”

“Since you nearly died yesterday!”

Jess sighed. It had been sweet at first. Now his behaviour was bordering on overprotective. And slightly patronising.

“But I didn’t. I’m fine.”

“That’s not the point, Jessica!”

“So what is the point, Captain?” Jess finally snapped.

Becker gaped at her for a full ten seconds before he pulled himself together.

“Never mind,” he muttered, avoiding her glare.

As he walked away, Jess could have sworn she heard the words, ‘security stuff’.
