He toyed with the glass as Ron spoke in regards to the trip to the base. He forced himself to control the burst of anger that had erupted. He for the moment didn't give a rat's a$$ what Marshall's orders were or happened to be. Someone who was dear to him needed him. If by being there he could help, Simon was all in for it. Placing the shot glass on the table, the naval officer looked at Delegado, "I just want to be there, I don't care for the moment if she won't notice." It didn't register in his mind, why she won't have noticed. He was too puzzled over Cooper's behavior to see it. But he nodded at the updates which would come his way, with that in mind he was calm at least.
Allowing the silent spell be cast over, Simon inhaled to ease some of the frustration that was building up. She was the Claire he knew, had known. But was she still the same after all that she had gone through, and will again from these events that had taken turn in twisted fate. The happy-go-lucky Davis he knew seemed to be attracting alot of trouble. Perhaps on after another.
Ron's voice broke the spell, while he didn't know Daniel Marshall personally, Simon had at least heard of the man and knew he was true to his word, smiling softly as best as he could manage, "And the last thing we want him to be is our hero." He tapped the shot glass few times, "Anyway, I'm gonna get going. Deb will have me by the ear if I'm no show. Keep those updates coming." With that he turned and walked towards the door and turned the knob open.
