The team wanted me to ask you a question.”
“I asked if there were any questions prior to dismissing all of you, and no one raised their hand,” Roger said slightly annoyed. He knew that the Governor would be monitoring his progress, and he didn’t want any delays to affect what could possibly be an advancement in his career.
“No sir,” the officer said, and then looked down.
“Then what is it they wanted you so desperately to ask about?” Roger was losing patience.
“Well sir,” he said. “It’s just that the other officers were wondering, if we don’t have to arrest Mr. Barton, would it be appropriate to ask for his autograph or even have photos taken with him?”
Roger wasn’t angry anymore. In fact, he had to try very hard not to laugh. In all honesty, he had wondered the very same thing. In fact, he had gone so far as to wonder if Mr. Barton would sign autographs for his children and wife. He shook his head slightly and looked at the nervous officer standing in front of him. “Tell them that if, and only if, we don’t have to arrest Mr. Barton, they are welcome to ask for autographs, photos and anything else that he agrees to.”
The officer smiled being both relieved and happy at the answer. “Yes sir! Thank you sir!”
He ran off to tell the others and Roger felt a wave of relief wash over him. His team was human after all.
