She was back at her old desk, with Lex in the bullpen, shoulder-to-shoulder. He'd missed her, he'd said, and he was going to have to get somebody to put between him and Kevin. She jacked her headset into the phone.

"CTU, Colefield."

"Hey Brittany, it's Eric. We're still over here. Kendall's being a complete ass."

"He's not letting Arica leave so I don't know when we'll be out of here. I don't really know much more than that. And I haven't even seen Arica."

"Motherfucker."

The obscenity was enough to get Lex to look over. He asked her silently if everything was all right and she shook her head slightly. He stayed there with her, waiting.

"I don't know what I can do," she continued.

Eric sighed. "I don't know what to do either," he replied. "Kendall's pissed about my transfer too. I think that's part of the problem."

Before Brittany could respond, Eric's office opened and Arica stepped inside. She looked upset but alright.

"She's here. They just let her go." Relief could be heard in his voice. Last time Kendall had insisted on holding her, it had taken him the better part of two weeks to get her out. "But yeah, Kendall doesn't wanna see me around here again, so I guess I'm all yours." Arica came over to him and they hugged.

"Don't mention it. I'll see you tomorrow." She smiled and hung up.

Eric hung up the phone and turned back to Arica. "Are you okay?"

She nodded and he stood up and pulled her close, kissing her. "It's been a long day."

"Come on. We're going home."
