“Good morning gentlemen,” Alexander Waverly cleared his throat as he greeted his number one and two field agents. “I have a simple assignment for you this afternoon. A dead drop downtown at a new building site along the East River.”
Solo tried to avoid showing any displeasure at this latest declaration to be completed with his new partner of course….not that he disliked the Russian at all, but still Napoleon wondered when the Old Man was going to stop sending them on these little milk-runs; Waverly’s method no doubt of breaking in Illya Kuryakin to the way things were done in New York.
It differed dramatically from the agenda-based nonsense that seemed to go on with Harry Beldon, or so Illya said. He showed no emotion in regard to Waverly’s trivial assignments and went about them with equal finesse as if they were ridding the world of yet another satrap.
Napoleon on the other hand preferred a little more action and hoped this would be the last of the ‘training wheel’ jobs on which their boss would be sending them.
The testosterone-fueled rivalry that had reared its narrow-minded head in the very beginning between the American and Russian’s partnership had trickled down to near nothing, as their relationship had grown in both trust and understanding and only that comes with familiarity.
