    Summary

    The sun is just beginning to set below the horizon when Michael hears a car pull into Sanders’ lot. He’s not expecting another customer this late in the day, so he edges himself out from under the sedan he’s working on to see who it is. 

    A smile tugs at his lips the moment he recognizes the SUV parked a few yards away. He reaches for the rag hanging out of his pocket to wipe the grease from his fingers as Alex exits the car and starts making his way over to him. There’s something dangling from his hand, but Michael is too distracted by the way Alex’s sweater is clinging to his chest beneath his open leather jacket to clock what it is just yet.

    Based on the promo picture for 3x08, but nothing else. Spoilers through 3x07.

    Summary

    “Hey,” Michael’s tone was casual as he slid onto the barstool next to Alex. He’d been playing pool for the last half hour, seemingly busy joking around with a group of tourists who were losing badly, but Alex knew that he’d been fully aware of Alex’s presence the whole time, that all he had to do was wait. He didn’t have to keep his eyes on Michael to know that.

    “Hey,” he matched Michael’s easy tone. “You having a good night?”

    “Yeah totally, seems luck was on my side tonight,” he winked and Alex shook his head.

    “I bet.”

    “Care for some company?”

    “Sure.”

    Alex’s text earlier in the evening had been short, ‘Going for a beer later’. The answer a simple ‘Ok’

    Summary

    The question is clearly rhetorical, for which Michael is grateful. He doesn’t think he could come up with a coherent response if he tried. He’s drained and comfortable, and Alex is there, touching him. Saying all the right things… It’s all he’s wanted for a long, long time. Michael doesn’t want to question it, or talk it to death. He just wants to enjoy it while it lasts.
