Final exams were coming up, for some that meant opening up their textbook for the first time, but for Leo Fitz it meant he got to spend more time with his only friend at the Academy.
“ Fitz, Fitz did you hear me?”
“Sorry, Simmons, I was uh, thinking about the field test. You know, that you want us to do so we can go and get killed.” Fitz knew the argument that was to follow. They’d had it for weeks now, ever since Jemma had rushed up to him bright eyed after a field scientist had guest lectured in for her Biology class.
“We wouldn’t be in the field with guns, we’d be going in after the specialists have finished. It’s going to be an adventure, seeing the world, and potentially discover something new! Imagine being the first person to work with alien technology, Fitz, we could save lives.”
“Or, we could get killed. I mean, if we had a monkey we could train it to go in the field for us.”
“Monkeys! Fitz, I’ve told you plenty of times, a team of trained monkeys will not solve all of your problems. Now let me study, I’ve an exam tomorrow. And so do you.” Simmons said. The shadows the defined them as students seemed darker under her eyes, and as Fitz watched, she yawned at the end of every page.
“How about we take a break from studying. Watch a few episodes of Dr. Who, sleep for a few hours before going at it again?” He said, gently taking the book out of her hands.
“One episode, and no napping. We need to study.”
She fell asleep halfway through the first episode, Fitz followed shortly after.
