“Sir, are you sure?” I ask Agent Potter, while my hand strokes my close-cut beard. Agent Potter nods and looks over the two profiles again.
“These two young girls, Peyton and Kristin, are just remarkable,” I hear Agent Potter mutter. Truthfully, I do not see what is so remarkable about these two girls. They are too young, too innocent, too inexperienced.
“This one has remarkable test grades. She is also quite the shot too, thanks to her father’s extensive military background. Meanwhile, the other one has the stealth and cunning strategy that you would need in a top level spy. Together they would make a great team and a wonderful addition to our agency. They are just remarkable…”
“There is only one problem, sir,” another man rudely interrupts. Agent Potter and I both shoot him a scrutinizing glance, taking in his haughty grin and know-it-all eyes, before the man continues on with what he is saying. “How are you going to get two people who don’t even know each other to trust each other and work well together? For all we know, they could meet and hate each other at first sight.”
Agent Potter just smirks and looks down, pointing his finger at the file. “It says right here that they are best friends.”
The other man shrugs then turns back to his computer as if nothing has happened.
“Well then, it’s time to bring them in,” I comment, breaking the silence that has settled over us.
Agent Potter agrees and says something about it being absolutely remarkable. The door slides shut, and I turn back to my desktop.
“I guess we will see if they really are remarkable,” I mutter softly under my breath as I pick up the phone and call for Agent Greene.
