Making an Effort

Work Text:

Vanessa dangles Ken’s cuffs from one finger. “Don’t you want to play, Officer?”

Ken takes them from her. “They’re not a toy.”

She hides the edge of hurt behind a sultry pout. “But I’m taking an interest in your work.”

“I don’t think that you’re interested in my... work.” Ken’s gaze is appreciative. It’s no more than Van expects; she’s a beautiful woman making an effort for her husband. He’d better appreciate her.

She poses. “Why don’t we investigate what I am interested in?”

Ken grins, pleased; but first he turns his back to store the cuffs away.

Damn it.
