I know it took a while to say the least, but here is Chapter 9.
After a week filled with a lot of interrogation sessions and trying with all kinds of techniques, Dottie has said nothing of value to further the investigation of what her and Hydra are working on.
Peggy with Agent Thompson and Agent Sousa in her office
"We are getting nowhere with the interrogations of Dottie Underwood" Agent Thompson remarked with bitter frustration in his voice and demeanor.
" Yes you are right about that Agent Thompson, we have to play at the long game to break Dottie, we have to turn her into what she hates the most" Peggy said with a looks as if she was getting an idea.
"And how do you suggest we do that Chief Carter" Agent Sousa remarked.
"Simple, we trick her with her food intake, so she gains weight and gets fat, and then she tells us her plan and we reward her with facilities to get her back into shape".
"But Chief Carter that sounds a bit unethical" Agent Sousa said with a bit of scepticism.
"I know Agent Sousa, but it's the only way to break her, for her to become what she hates". Peggy said sternly.
"It's what needs to be done, I agree" Agent Thompson uttered.
"No we have to be better than this!! let's think of the values this organization was formed under, this is not what Cap would have done" Said Agent Sousa sternly.
"Actually you are right Agent Sousa, thanks for talking me down, I got too caught up in my hate for Dottie, we have to be better, we have to do better, lets lock her up for now, and think and try to come up with a plan on what we do from now on".
"Good idea Chief" remarked both Agent Sousa and Thompson at the same time.
Later the same day at dinner at Angie and Peggy´s place
Peggy walked into the kitchen of their apartment and exclaimed how delicious the food smelled.
"I´ve got a lot of plans to come up with now, after my promotion last week Angie, so I´m absolutely starving, I hope you made enough".
"Well I hope so too English by your remark of how hungry you are, and also good to hear, I made a big dish of Lasagna".
"Oh I love your Lasagna Angie!".
"You where not kidding English, are you sure you are not pregnant to eat that amount of food in one sitting?".
Peggy blushed a little at that statement from Angie, "No Angie, but I just wanted to celebrate with a feast after the success at my job lately, I know I can´t inhale food in this amount on a regular basis then I would become Obese, I´m already fat as it is right now". Stated Peggy while grabbing an amount of first belly fat and then back fat afterwards.
"Well I can´t argue with that statement English".
The next day at Chiefs Carters office at the SHIELD Facility in L.A.
Agent Sousa began the meeting with Agent Thompson and Chief Carter by asking "So whets the play now Chief Carter?".
"Well Agent Sousa, we know Hydra moved a lot of equipment into the states from the west coast, but recently there has been no further movement of what we are aware, so we have to contact some experts regarding some of the pieces we could identify and brainstorm from there on what Hydra could be building or using it for".
But we also have to look at the possibility of getting something out of Dottie Underwood".
"But she´s not telling us anything Chief" Agent Thompson reminded Peggy.
"I´m planning on bringing in some scientists for the science department of SHIELD to come up with a kind of truth serum"
"That sounds a bit drastic Chief".
"I Know Sousa, but we have to look at that possibility".
"I guess you´re right about that Chief".
"We also have to look at possible warehouses that Hydra could be working at, so Agent Thompson and Sousa you put it out the message to the authorities in California, Nevada and Arizona to be on the lookout for possible suspicious activities near abandoned warehouses".
"Will do Chief" Sousa and Thompson said in unison.
The next morning
"Peggy wake up"
"Who´s Mariah Stokes?".
"I don´t know, just some weird dream I guess".
"Okay, say did you pull an all nighter since you are here so early?",
"Yes I have to admit I was agent Sousa".
"Well you have to sometimes take a break from the job Peggy, and I have just the idea or solution for you".
"Oh really Agent Sousa".
"Yes, clear your schedule for tonight because I´m taking you out for dinner if you accept".
"I´m not sure that's office appropriate Agent Sousa".
"Oh I know I´ve struggled with the idea myself, but I think it's worth a shot".
"You talked me into it Sousa, pick up at 7 pm at my apartment, and make sure to choose a place with big servings, I´m not a small agent anymore Sousa".
"Will do Peggy and it's a deal and a date".
