    Summary

    “You like hurting people,” Washington repeats.

    “Uh, yeah.” It's an easy answer because it's not a lie.

    “But did you like hurting Locus?” Washington asks.

    Felix blinks. He opens his mouth to say ‘yes,’ but the word sticks in his throat. That question, surprisingly, does not have such an easy answer.

    Summary

    Rude waits patiently; nothing prying, no expectancy. Tiredness has descended over them both, and there is not fight in him to demand a response of Reno.

    “Fuck, this is way heavier than I meant it to be – why do you get so serious when it's just us drinkin' lately? Where's the asshole who leaves thumb-tacks on my fuckin chair when I go get my coffee?”

    “Stuck in a bathroom somewhere, trying to scratch his number out of the wall where some dumbass scribbled it under sex-line adverts for 'a spiffy shining bald time'.”

    Summary

    The chiming echo of bullets hitting the other side of the container is almost deafening, as Rude watches the rise and fall of Reno’s chest, and tries to slow his own breathing, in turn. That distracting little cluster of freckles on Reno’s collarbone, just visible beneath the open collar of his shirt, catches his eye once again. He starts his breathing exercise over.

    Reno glances his way, and if he even noticed what had caught Rude’s attention, he doesn’t say anything about it now. “They’re really upping their game this week, yo. You think we did something to piss ‘em off?”

    Pulling his gaze away, and cocking his gun to check how many rounds he has left (twelve shots, not ideal, but enough), Rude shrugs. A picture of calm beside Reno’s almost-vibrating silhouette.

    “Exist?” He offers. Reno snorts, and takes Rude’s lead, checking the charge in his electro-mag rod. He groans.

    Summary

    "I-I'm alright, I'm not too hungry real-"

    "Mom."

    She blinks at him, a little taken aback by his surety, but smiles all the same, hiding it with her menu. "Alright... they have a cheesecake on the desert menu, would that and a coffee be alright?"

    "Sure."

    There's suddenly a mess of red-hair looming over his mother's shoulder, peering at her menu; she stiffens a little, obviously shocked, but Reno doesn't seem to notice (or perhaps its that he doesn't care). Grinning, he traces a finger down the menu and stabs at one particular spot with a laugh. "You buyin', Partner? I'm totally gettin' the chocolate fudge cake. An' a beer. I could totally go for a beer right now."

    Two hours later, and Rude is wandering the late night city streets with his mother at his side; her arm linked through the crook of his elbow, one hand gripping his forearm as if to assure herself, still, that he will not go anywhere. He isn't planning to, wouldn't dare. Though, admittedly, he rather wishes Reno would.
