The others are laughing and talking when I enter the reception center. Brianna is the center of attention from all the guys, even Harris. I want to throw something but sit down in my seat to look at the paperwork they've been going over when I was out.

First aid procedures. Ugh. Schedule with two days marked as being offsite camping. Double ugh. I'm not the kind of person who wants anything to do with living in a tent. I don't know any of this stuff, and everyone else seems a lot more comfortable with it.

"Ten minute break, then we'll get started again," calls Brianna. She's definitely relishing being in charge.

I tell myself not to give her an ounce of thought, but it's kind of hard. It doesn't help that I have an unpleasant history with her. I'm feeling raw again, a combination of being somewhere I've never been without Mikael and feeling out of place with the others here.

God, I miss him so much.

"Hey, Kat."

Dammit, Brianna. Leave me alone. I plaster on a fake smile and rise to talk to her.

"You've lost weight."

"Been taking care of my brother. Hospital food leaves much to be desired."

"Hmm." A shadow crosses through her features. "At least you're not up to your old antics anymore."

"Some things are more important than my personal life," I reply innocently.

That gets the response I want. Unable to provoke Captain Mathis, I know I haven't lost my touch by the flare of red that goes up Brianna's pretty face.
