It had taken Harry and Gavrik a little over an hour to explain the facts to the Home Secretary. The three men now sat in silence as Towers paced the room mulling over the conversation he had just had.

Harry brought him out of his train of thought. "Home Secretary, if you require my resignation you can have it on your desk within the hour."

Harry walked out onto the Grid and slid his office door closed behind him and went to rejoin his team. It was his office and his team, but for how much longer?

Behind him, Towers and Gavrik and turned to watch him acknowledge the rest of his team. It was Gavrik who broke the icy silence that had enveloped the room since Harry's departure.

"Home Secretary, if anything, I implore you not to remove Harry Pearce from MI5. He has done a great service to both our countries, he is without doubt a pillar in the worldwide intelligence community. Possibly the most experienced officer in your security service. To remove such an asset would be a mistake of gargantuan proportions. Admittedly he may not have a perfect record but you would be hard done to find a more experienced officer. Think about it, leaves Oxford goes to Sandhurst completes his training and then joins the Blues and Royals in Northern Ireland in 1974. Leaves the army in 1976 joins MI5, goes back to Northern Ireland in 1977, after one of his good friends is killed by a car bomb in 1978 he is seconded to MI6. Stationed in Paris and posted to Iran during the revolution in 1979. Posted to Cologne in 1980 where he fights the left wing terrorists of the Red Army Faction. In 1982 he is sent to Argentina during the Falklands crisis. Between 1983 to 1989 he is posted to East Berlin to work along side the late James Coaver. During this time he becomes the head of MI6's station in East Berlin and my opposite number. He and the rest of the British station are quietly extracted in 1989 before the fall of the Wall. Harry comes home to Britain and returns to MI5. After a six month sabbatical he returns to Northern Ireland and becomes one of your best interrogators of paramilitary prisoners. In 1995 he returns to London and joins the counter terrorism department of MI5. In his first month he successfully foils an attempt on the lives of Margaret Thatcher and John Major and is quietly given a CBE in recognition of the fact. In 1997 he goes to Hong Kong to over see the transition of power to China. In 1998 he becomes section chief of Section D. By the millennium he is head of this department."

Gavrik paused. "For the past ten years, Harry and his team have been successfully defending your country against enemies both foreign and domestic. Be it pro-life extremists, Kurdish rebels, rogue intelligence officers, the IRA, religious extremists, the Mafia, South American drugs cartels, cyber criminals, eco-terrorists, far right extremists, renegade army units, rogue politicians, Yalta, Nightingale or financial crime. Harry Pearce has been the person who has successfully headed the team that has kept British citizens safe. Harry Pearce is the one I want to work with my country's intelligence service.

"She joined MI5 3 years ago after leaving university. Completed her training 2 years ago and was in a desk job on secondment to MI6 for 18 months before coming to head Section D in the wake of the Albany matter. Fast tracked to the top but with no experience. I don't know how she became a section chief so quickly!" Gavrik retorted.

"She is currently lying in intensive care after being stabbed whilst on a field operation despite not officially being a member of MI5. She is currently your security advisor and whilst she may be one of the the most experienced former members of this department still living, she idolises Harry and Harry shows great affection for her. I do not think she could sit in Harry's chair and do his job. She would be in Harry's shadow, she would be asking Harry for advice every day to such an extent that you might as well reinstate him."

"The former section chief of this department is currently running his own security firm. He was decommissioned by Harry 7 years ago. I do not think he would like to return on a permanent basis."

"Certainly experienced, joined MI5 at the same time as Harry. However very much a 'desk spook' and has little recent experience in field work. I couldn't see him leading a counter terror department, he works in a niche field of technology."

"In my opinion, Harry Pearce has more experience than the rest of his current department put together. His loss would be felt throughout the British intelligence community. He is irreplaceable. In some ways he is overqualified his current post. I think he knows that, he turned down promotion to Director General of MI5 a few years ago. Harry Pearce is a person I want to work with. I don't want to deal with someone who finished their training a year or two ago. I want someone with confidence and experience. Asking for his resignation over something that we just agreed never happened would be unjustified and unhelpful" Gavrik finished.

"Well when put like that I suppose you are right, Minister." Towers began. "You seem to be able to read the situation like a book."

"I was a spy for thirty years, I've been a politician for ten. I think my abilities are justified by experience." Gavrik replied. "Now Home Secretary, I must get back to the embassy. Its been a long day. But I urge you again, do not fire Harry, do not pressure him into resigning. You need him and people like him now more than ever. Since the fall of the wall and the end of communism in my country, power has started to move east, to Russia, China and the Middle East. You need people experienced in dealing with those countries. And we need someone who understands us to liaise with us. However, if he chooses to go, let him go. Judging by the recent mortality rates in this department, Harry would be lucky to leave the service in one piece. Now I think I can find my way back to the front entrance, I'll call a car and stay at the embassy tonight. No doubt I will meet with you tomorrow after dealing with the Kremlin." With that Gavrik left the office and crossed the now empty Grid and disappeared through the pods, leaving Towers in the office pondering his thoughts.

A/N: Please review. If possible follow and favourite – it means a lot (as well as having an attentive audience!). I think the next chapter will see Harry discussing the situation with his team as well as possibly seeing Ruth again (no guarantees). But plot ideas are welcome, by all means post them.
