Fandom & Pairing Babylon 5 Susan/Talia
Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Michael's investigation had just hit a brick wall. All the inquiries he had been making into Irinia's background were being blocked. Someone wanted that info kept secret. Which made him all the more suspicious. His thoughts were interrupted by the arrival of someone at the door. Michael closed down his console and called out for his visitor to enter.

"Can I help you?"

"I'm looking for Michael Garabaldi."

"Well you are in luck, because you just found him." Michael replied with a smile. "And who might you be?"

"I'm Andrei Kralick."

Michael was shocked when the visitor identified himself. He quickly covered his surprise. Why would Irinia's father be looking for me, he thought. I bet he's the one blocking me. I wonder what he's hiding. Must be something very important for him to make the trip out here.

Michael gestured to the seats facing his console.

"Please Mr. Kralick have a seat. How can I help you?"

"I want to know why you are so interested in my daughter?"

Michael was surprised at how forthright Andrei was.

"It's my job as security chief to know everything I can about new arrivals." Michael was thinking how lame is explanation was. He groaned inwardly.

"Please Mr. Garabaldi do you really expect me to believe that you do extensive background checks on every person that steps foot on this station! Do not insult my intelligence! I'll ask again what is you interest in my daughter?"

Andrei stood up from the chair and was nose to nose with the security chief.

Michael tried to diffuse the tense situation. "Let's take a step back here and calm down."

"Answer my question!"

So much for diplomacy. Guess I will just tell him everything. Michael took a deep breath.

"Your daughter bares an uncanny resemblance to a missing officer aboard the station. I was making sure that her story checked out and she was who she said she was."

Andrei visibly shivered when Michael finished speaking. He quickly regained his composure.

"I believe this is a case of mistaken identity Mr. Garabaldi. I assure you that she is Irinia and not your missing officer. Also let me make something clear. If I catch you harassing my daughter again I will not be responsible for my actions."

Andrei didn't wait for Michael to respond and stormed out of the security office.

Mr. Kralick is hiding something. Michael was sure of it now just by his behavior. Perhaps Irinia is Susan. If only he could get her to consent to a DNA scan. Michael went in search of the one person who could persuade her.
