NIKKI'S TEST -- Excerpt #6

"So… how often are they able to get together?" Sophie said. "Do you think the trouble is from that far back?"

"It could be why they're sitting still," Carter said, after a short, thoughtful silence. "We will know better once that package from Brooklyn arrives."

"So, should I call Nikki?" Joan said.

"At this point in her training…" He traded glances with Elizabeth. She nodded. "I can't see how further information would help her. She already knows the situation is ticklish and time is of the essence. Sharing our speculations might just make her uneasy, awkward. The less she has to lie about, the safer she'll be. I'm sorry. This is a point where too much information could be crippling."

"There's no such thing as too much praying, though," Elizabeth said. She held out her hands for Carter and Joan to clasp. Joan took Sophie's hand, and she took Carter's, completing the circle as they bowed their heads and closed their eyes.
