Better Late Than Never
Steggy Positivity Week | Day 1: Agent Carter Timeline
Peggy has a very important appointment to keep.
Normally, Peggy would consider patience to be one of her strong suits. But as she waits at the door to the phone company that hides the SSR, she can’t help tapping her foot and glancing anxiously between the street and the clock on the wall. As the minute hand tips perilously close to the half-past mark, the door finally swings open and Peggy sighs in relief.
“You’re a lifesaver.”
“I know, I know. You’d be lost with me,” Angie says breezily, holding out a large bag. “You can pay me back by telling me every single detail later.”
Peggy chuckles. “Of course.”
“I mean it, English. Every detail.”
“Every detail, I promise. I’ll see you later.”
She waves Angie goodbye, then heads back downstairs with the bag. She doesn’t have much time left - maybe twenty minutes, if she pushes it - but she thinks it will be enough.
One of the few advantage of the being practically the only woman working at the SSR - actually the only advantage - is that she has the ladies’ room all to herself. So she can throw her things around and not worry about anyone else coming in as she kicks off her shoes and strips off the blouse and skirt she’s been working in all day.
It would be preferable, of course, to do this at home, in her apartment, but when a case requires she stayed late she will be damned if she’s seen to be leaving any earlier than the other agents.
