Sophie: Oh god.

Mark: She's gonna pull through this. If there is one thing to say about her is that. She's as stubborn as the Kane siblings.

(They look at him and laugh.)

A couple of months later.

(Over at the FBI head quarters down in their training room. Kate's in their training room with someone sparing with them as their sparing she gets her in the butt getting her to laugh.)

Kate: Okay.

(They go back at it for the next couple of ten to twenty minutes they keep at it until Mark and Reagan walk into the room and see how well she's holding up against Kate as they watch them sparing they notice her

duck out of her reach and then grabs her arm and throws her over her shoulder and to the mat getting to laugh at her.)

Kate: Are we sure you were injured two months ago.

(Sarah looks at her and laughs as she stands up and looks at both Mark and Reagan.)

Sarah: Hi.
Mark: Hi.

(She looks at Kate who turns and looks at them.)

Kate: I got owned by Baggins General manager.
Mark: I could of told you Sarah's badass.
Sarah: Nowhere near as badass as Kate.
Mark: Oh no. But then again.
Reagan: That was hot.

(Mark looks at her and laughs as Sarah walks down towards them and grabs up a towel along with Kate.)

Mark: I told you training with Kate would be hard.
Sarah: It is. She kept me going that's for sure.
Mark: You do this all the time?

(She looks down and laughs.)

Sarah: No. But then again.
Kate: She's some tattoo's.
Mark: She does. But nowhere near as the same amount as you.
Kate: What?

(They laugh at him as Sarah gets her shirt on and looks at them.)

Mark: Have you heard from Tyler?
Sarah: Yeah. He's wondering when I'm gonna come home.
Mark: And?
Sarah: Being here to me seems like it's a lot more safer. But then again. I miss my family so.
Mark: No ones forcing you to stay here.
Sarah: Yeah i know. I'm just not really sure there's much of a store to go back to.
Mark: Why you say that?
Sarah: They've had a temerpory General manager there and I'm just afraid that if i go back.
Mark: You realize their all gonna be very happy to see you right?
Sarah: I'm aware of that.
Mark: So what's the issue?
Sarah: The last time i was anywhere near my store i was attacked and kidnapped along with my floater.
Mark: But she got taken because she was trying save you.
Sarah: I know.
Mark: We're also not gonna force you to go back.
Sarah: That's code for go home with you.
Mark: No it's not. Seriously. You can stay here or you can go home. It's seriously completely up to you. But we all have a really good idea on how much your employee's and your assistants miss and want you back.
Sarah: Why?
Mark: Let's just the temerpory GM wants to remain at that store. And is fighting to have you sent to another store.
Sarah: Shit.
Mark: So what you gonna do?

(He looks over at him as they all turn and look at him and long with the other big bosses there.)

Austin: Marty!
Marty: You've been sending people home in the middle of a lunch rush?
Austin: We were slow?
Sylvia: We haven't been slow since December. He had no reason to send her home.
Susan: You wanna explain that?
Rachael: He's a gay basher.

(He looks at her and laughs off the shock.)

Sarah: Wait what?
Rachael: He flat out told me that he didn't want a fag in his store.

(They all look at her and then to Austin who looks off annoyed.)

Rachael: Because of him we lost a lot of our returning customers.
Sarah: Really?
Rachael: Yeah. We can work as hard as we can but he never helps.
Marty: How's that?

Rachael: She looks good right?
Lauren: She does. Can we have Sarah back please.

Marty: Not right away. And what i mean by that we wanna know if she's actually fully ready to come back.
Rachael: Well if we can't have Sarah back.
Lauren: Who you thinking?
Rachael: Have Asher be our GM until we can have Sarah back.

Mark: Hey.
Veracity: Hey. How's Tucson?
Mark: It's Tucson.
Veracity: Smartass.
Mark: I know. It's okay. But you aren't going to believe who the temerpory GM for the store on Oracle is?

Mark: Reagan's scared of Scream.
Reagan: I am not.
Kate: Really?
Mark: Yeah.
Kate: I'm sure she does a lot of screaming when she's having sex with Ares.
Mark: Oh.

(Sarah walks off laughing along with Lauren. Then they calm down.)

Mark: Anyway. There's nothing to scary about Scream.
Veracity: I know. It was actually a really good movie. And i got a lot of sex after words.
Mark: Good to know. As long as you guys didn't get to scared.
Calamity: I didn't and i know Vera didn't.
Mark: Well then who?
Calamity: Mary and Ryan.
Ryan/Mary: Hey.

(They start laughing again then calm down.)

Mark: Are Ryan and Mary a thing now?

Veracity: Well for what it's worth Mark.
Mark: What?
Veracity: I hope they can get Sarah back not have to deal with Austin much longer.
Mark: So do they.

(He remains on the phone with Veracity as they continue to tell Sarah and the higher up's about what Austin has been doing since she's been gone.)

Sarah: Is Michael even still here?
Rachael: Yeah he's still here. And has nearly come to blows with the jerk.
Sarah: Meaning?
Rachael: Meaning Michael nearly hit him and if hadn't of been for either Jimmy or Tyler Michael would of lost his job.
Sarah: Tyler!
Rachael: Yeah. While you were away him and the kids would come in here and spend sometime with us all. But only if he knew he wasn't around. Which is never.
Lauren: Yeah this is the first time any of us have seen him.
Marty: And just where is it you go Austin?
Austin: Why's it matter?
Marty: It matters because this is supposed to be the store you're running.
Austin: I.
Rachael: Tell me you went and saw Tyler?
Sarah: I did. Last night. I spent the night with my family last night.
Lauren: I bet it was one hell of a reunion.
Sarah: It was. Aside from that.

(They laugh at her.)

Marty: Sarah you got your shirt?
Sarah: Not with me?

(Just then her husband walks into the store and sees her.)

Tyler: Hi.
Sarah: Hi.

(She walks over to him and he quickly hugs her getting her to smile at him then he pulls away from her as he hands her the shirt and laughs.)

Sarah: It's scary at how well he knows me.
Mark: Nope not touching it.
Sarah: Yeah please don't.
Mark: Okay.
Sarah: Anyway. Rachael said you had to break up a fight between him and Michael.
Tyler: I did. And if i hadn't there's no telling what that prick would of done.
Sarah: Meaning?
Tyler: He threatened to have Michael arrested if he even remotely stepped into this store again.

(Sarah looks at him and then to Austin.)

Sarah: Why?
Rachael: He over heard mine and Michael's conversation one day and got angry.
Sarah: Okay. What were you two talking about?
Rachael: Me and Michael have been seeing each other and he doesn't like it.

(Austin looks at her and then looks off annoyed as Mark's phone goes off again he grabs it out to see who it is.)

Mark: Reagan!
Reagan: Yeah.
Mark: What's up?
Reagan: We've got a problem.
Mark: What kind of problem?
Reagan: Ask Rachael when was the last time she's seen Michael Miller.

(He looks at Sarah who looks at him confused but he asks her anyway.)

Mark: Rachael!
Rachael: Yeah.
Mark: When was the last time you saw Michael?
Rachael: Just yesterday. Why?
Mark: Why?
Reagan: Because someone was just rushed into Mary's clinic and they said he was wearing a blue Baggin's shirt.
Mark: What?
Reagan: And they said he was calling out for their floater.
Mark: How they know it's?
Reagan: They checked his ID.
Mark: Oh god.
Reagan: And by the looks of him.
Mark: Okay.
Reagan: Looks like he was beaten within inch of his life.
Mark: They took him into Mary's clinic?
Reagan: Yeah.
Mark: Are right we're on the way back.
Reagan: Okay.

(Then he hangs up with her and he looks at Sarah.)

Sarah: What?
Mark: We gotta get back to Gotham.
Tyler: Why?
Mark: Someone just rushed Michael into Mary's clinic.
Rachael: What?
Mark: And from what Reagan just told me.
Sarah: What?
Mark: It's not good.
Marty: Go. We'll deal with him later. But for the time being until she returns Asher's taking over as this stores GM.
Austin: What?
Susan: And that's final.

(He looks off annoyed. As they all rush from the store and head off back towards Gotham.)

Later that day.

(Back in Gotham over at Mary's clinic they all rush in and over to Mary.)

Mary: Hey.
Mark: Hey. How is he?
