Leah sighed as she just finished all her meetings she had, she was about to call it a day when her computer console beeped at her. Sighing 'what could it be now' she said to herself as she turned it on to see a message from Starfleet. She raised an eyebrow, as she was shocked by what she had read. She tapped her combadge, "Leah to Adam please report to my office immediately." Leah ordered and waited a response.

Adam checked his watch and shook his head. He wasn't late for any meeting with Leah. There next scheduled one wasn't for another hour. Something had just come up and likely thrown a wrench into the current operational planning. With a sigh he shook his head. 'Damage control mode.' He thought to himself.

"Be right there." He responded as he locked his desk console and stood up heading for the door.

It was literally a few steps down the corridor from his office to Leah's office. They were literally side by side, just mirrored so they were at opposite ends of the rooms from each other. He was half tempted to call Commander Sherren to have a door installed in their shared wall. Save the walk through their entry ways where their aide's announced their respective visitors. He nodded to Leah's aide and headed straight for her office with a 'What can you do?' shrug, which drew a small smile in return.

Stepping into the office, he took a quick look around to see if anyone else was present. Finding themselves alone, he skipped any formality. "What broke this time babe? Our meeting isn't for another hour so we must have a fire somewhere."

She looked at him, "you can say that." Leah said as she looked at him. "Was actually hoping to call it a night before I got word from Starfleet about another change." Leah said as she looked at him walking around her desk.

"So whats tonight's disaster before we can go pick up the kid and get some dinner?" He asked as he kissed the top of her head and then leaned over to look over her shoulder.

She looked at him, "By the power given to me by Starfleet you are here by promoted to the rank of Brigadier General with the right's and privileges there of." She started as she took his bird off and replaced it with the star and smile at him. "Also you been reassigned to head the Fourth Marine Division as it's Commanding Officer." Leah added with a sigh but smiled.

"Well..." He started and then shook his head, "shit." He said with a laugh. "That took them awhile to finally make happen. I was starting to privately consider retirement after being stuck at Colonel for so long." He admitted. "At least this time I'm not getting shipped halfway across the quadrant."

She smiled, "Congratulations my love." She said as she kissed him, "I am glad you are not." She said as she looked at him. "So you have a lot of work to do to get your marines and buildings ready...ya have a month." Leah said as she looked at him.

"Anyways lets gets get Jr and get some dinner, after that call it a night got out first staff meeting tomorrow and you will be there." Leah said with a smile as she looked at him.

"Oh I'll be there alright, just not in the capacity I had expected." He chuckled. "Come on, I heard about a restaurant down on the beach I wanna try out."

They headed out the door, told her assistant to go home and get some sleep as it was getting late. Then they walked out of the Command building and headed to pick up Jr, then the restaurant.
