"I've been all over," Mark said with a sigh. "Last mission was a week before I transferred here." A pause. "I came to the CIA out of SWAT in L.A. Where'd you come from?"

"You have to admit. The name CIA gives a certain aura of mystery to anything. And I wanted to help my country. That's why I said yes. Some days I'm glad I did. Others I regret it."

"I've had a few days like that myself, like when I am trudging through so backwater third world country looking for some idiot who may have one piece of intel that may or may not be significant."
