A/N: This one’s a double drabble and a half, 250 words.
Alicia Grant is supposed to be under witness protection, but she’s given her protectors the slip. Or more accurately, she slipped a sleeping powder of some kind into their drinks, before slipping out. All FBI Agent Diana Spacey and NYPD Detective Dee Laytner had to do was relax in the penthouse of the Plaza Hotel overnight and make sure Alicia stayed put, but they failed miserably.
Understandably, Diana is furious with herself as well as Dee. Because the two of them couldn’t say no to a little drinkie, her key witness is now missing, and quite possibly in danger. After all, Alicia’s husband is mob boss Leo Grant, and the man she’s supposed to be testifying against is a Chicago dealer by the name of Bennett, who’s trying to muscle in on the New York scene. Alicia’s certainly not short of enemies, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if someone put a hit out on her, and now she’s out there somewhere with no protection.
It’s a big surprise when Ryo, who isn’t even supposed to be on duty that night, shows up at the penthouse door with none other than the missing witness, thankfully still in one piece. Typically, Diana doesn’t hold back, letting Alicia know just how unimpressed she is with the other woman’s behaviour. Just as typically, Alicia is completely unfazed.
Diana is quite sure that by the time this witness protection gig is over, she’s going to have more than a few grey hairs.
