Sadie sat across the desk looking at the piles of reports from the tape recordings of last night's operation. She seemed to be deep in thought, but raised her head and smiled at Hawks. He decided to go for a walk and get some fresh air.
While walking down the street, Hawks tried to figure out how he could have fallen in love with one of his field directors.
“Listen to me, trying to talk myself out of loving a great woman, one that knows my job and understands,” he said aloud.
Most of the agents were divorced two or three times, simply because their wives didn't understand the job they had. Hawks has a woman that knows exactly what his responsibilities are. Obviously she can live with them, because hers are the same.
But what kind of life would we have, he thought miserably, me in Washington and her here in California?
Then he thought he heard someone call his name, but as he looked around all he could see was a crowd of people walking in every which way.
He headed on down the street wondering how this relationship would work. The next thing he knew, someone was pulling on his arm. He turned to see Sadie looking at him with a very nasty snarl on her face.
"Just what do you think you're doing?" Sadie snapped. "I saw the look on your face as you left the office."
"I noticed you were reading reports and decided to go for a walk," he said, looking confused.
"Well, did you think I was going to let you talk yourself out of our relationship?" she asked, putting her hands on her hips. "I know how you are. You take walks to figure out how to do something. If it's our relationship that you're worried about, it'll work. I love you damn it," she said with a hurt look in her eyes.
"What gave you the idea that I take walks to figure out things?" he asked, surprised that anyone had paid his actions any notice.
"When Mike came in, he told me that you told the secretary you were taking a walk. He also said you took walks only to figure out something," she stated abruptly.
He looked at her a moment, trying to figure out how to tell her what he'd been thinking. "Let's walk on down here," he said as he took her arm and held her close.
They walked to a little park and sat on a bench and didn't speak to each other for quite some time.
Finally he said, "I don't know what to do about the problem of you being on the west coast and me on the east coast."
"That'll be no problem," she said smiling. "I can always transfer to headquarters and take a position there. All I want is you," she said, and rested her head on his shoulder. "If needed, I'll quit my job and then there'll be no problems at all," she whispered.
They sat there quietly for a while. He took her hand and said, "I love you and don't want to lose you." She kissed him.
