Meme in Progress

Rules: go to page 7 of your WIP, skip to the 7th line, share 7 sentences, and tag 7 more writers to continue the challenge.

There’s a long, infuriatingly silent pause as they both climb up.

“It was nothing personal,” he’s forced to break it, forced to break his usual carefully stoic wall, as Grayson tries the door handle with light fingers, “we have a job to do, Grayson, and sometimes in the course of that job we have to do certain things. I apologise if I shocked you, truly, but I can assure you that it was only-“

“The door is locked,” Grayson says quietly, and gives him a flat look in the dim light. Somehow, perhaps from years of carefully honed survival, he gets the sense of quiet disappointment, “and I knew, about the whole job thing. I was just... Thinking, that’s all.”

He has never cared about disappointing people before, has always considered it a righteous punishment for a world that has never once been kind to him. But now, with Grayson standing so quietly across from him... He reaches out, pops the lock in something of a daze, “thinking is not entirely necessary in this job.”




I'm not tagging people, because I'm lazy, but if you want to do this then feel free!

It's currently 18000 or so words of incredibly tropey fake married case fic, and I'm looking forward to unleashing it upon the world!

MY EXCITEMENT IS INCREASING
I can never resist fake dating/married fics, it's such a good trope.

It really is! It's possibly one of my most loved tropes, but I've never written it before. I'm so pleased that I've finally managed it. :D
