"Is that your TA?" The visiting professor from England gestured to the brunette woman pulling books from the shelves in Dr. Hasting's office.

"Yes, it is." Amelia Hastings removed her glasses. "Her name is Megan Reeves and..."

"Miss Reeves!" At the sound of the man's haughty accent Megan turned around. "Fetch me a cup of tea. Earl Gray or any proper English tea will do."

Megan slowly replaced the book in her hand as Amelia smirked.

"Excuse me?"

"Oh, you don't want to ask Megan for that," Amelia tried to tell him.

The man ignored her. "I said, a cup of Earl Gray tea, if you will."

"No, actually," Megan stated, arms folded over her chest. "I won't. I'm not your servant."

"You're a teacher's assistant," the man stated, sniffing his displeasure at being challenged. "Your job is to do whatever's asked of you."

"My job is to assist Dr. Hastings in her research on women in prisons."

The man waved his hand dismissively. "Oh, this is covered under the fine print: 'other duties as assigned.'"

Megan shook her head.

"I don't even get coffee for Dr. Hastings so there's no chance I'm going to do it for some nobody who treats TAs like crap."

"I am an honored scholar, a double Ph.D. and a guest professor at this university!" the man bellowed.

Megan approached him, looming over where he sat trembling with rage.

"I'm a former FBI agent, I teach Krav Maga and," her eyes narrowed, "I'm armed." As the man paled, she went back to the books. "Get your own damn tea."

Amelia choked back laughter as she speed-dialed on her cellphone. "Cafeteria? Dr. Hastings. Send over a cup of hot tea will you?" She winked at Megan. "Yes, the very best American tea we have to offer."
