    Summary

    They look an odd pair walking the streets of Boston at an age where other mothers might keep them tucked under their arms with stories of monsters shaped like men. But this city is their home; all drunk filled gutters and abandoned corner shops, it’s the only home they know. And as they slip between alleyways, passing back and forth a single cigarette Sean swiped from one of his brothers, they almost blend in completely with the graffiti. Billy, slight and fair-haired, just as sharp and bright as the tags on the wall; Sean is his opposite, what he lacks in height, he’s already making up for with the width of his shoulders and the strength of his glare.

    At this age they believe they’re invincible. They are, just not for the reasons they might think.

    Summary

    Sean pegs him during the first meeting.

    He never actually makes it into the room, not while people are milling about, swapping stories and downing hot coffee, but he hangs by the door looking like a stray begging for scraps. He’s been nursing a single Styrofoam cup the entire time and seems to be wary about crossing the threshold for another.

    Summary

    Billy lifts the gun to his head, presses the barrel against his temple. His eyes are fixed on Sean’s the whole time. He doesn’t blink as he pulls the trigger.

    'Bang.'

    It starts out with a fight, which is unsurprising; the way Billy stops halfway through... that takes him aback

    Summary

    For a second, Dignam looks out of his depth, lips slightly parted, eyebrows knit tightly together but eyes actually wider than usual, and Billy wants to crow with delight, but then the sneer is back in place, and Dignam steps back, letting Billy go, drawing away with a gentle slap to his cheek.

    ‘Not bad, kid.’

    What the fuck, Billy wants to say. You can’t leave me like this man, you gotta give me something, come on...

    Summary

    Costigan stares at the little white pill in his hand with the concentration of a man who knows he is losing a battle against himself. He rolls the single pill into his other hand and wonders when the last time was he had taken only one (instead of four).
    As he swallows the bit of solace locked in that tiny tablet, he is comforted by the fact that he isn't taking these pills alone. If Costigan is guilty of substance abuse, Dignam is just as guilty for letting him do it.
    And Dignam has made sure it'll only ever be on his own terms and no one else's, not even Costigan's.
