From Riley Adams Hits the Road
A few weeks later, things were not looking quite as good. Riley, who was normal calm and cool under pressure, was freaking out on two different fronts.
The first front was the well being of the city while she was gone. She was leaving the city in perfectly capable hands, having recruited her old FBI pal, Mattie Cervantez, and Mattie’s time traveling girlfriend, Darcy Thatcher. Mattie was a short, tough, street smart spitfire and could trade quips faster than even Riley herself. Darcy was her compliment, tall, often stoic, no nonsense with a sense of humor that only came out with the people closest to her.
Mattie and Darcy were the perfect candidates to keep an eye on the city was Riley was gone. They’d come along on a few of Riley’s tougher missions recently and she knew they could handle themselves. A little too well sometimes, especially when explosives were involved. At any rate, they could keep the city under control, at least enough that wouldn’t completely destroy itself while Riley was gone for the weekend.
Still, Riley was worried. She had never left H City alone for this long. She wondered if this is what it felt like to drop a kid off at kindergarten for the first time.
