    Summary

    Stiles thought it would be easy doing janitorial work for an office. At first, it really was. The job only took a few hours in the evenings and it helped pay for rent and college. Sure, Hale Industries took up an entire floor in one of the downtown financial buildings, but the place was new and easy to care for. He didn’t even have to spend much time cleaning the huge corner office, because the trash was nearly always empty and the office itself was spotless, like no one used it.

    It was basically the perfect college job. At least, until the boss started staying late.

    Summary

    Harvey’s smiling, soft in a way that Mike recognizes, but after a few weeks without it, it's easier to note the intimacy, the surprising fondness from a man so guarded. It disarms him, and without thinking Mike reaches up to brush his fingers along Harvey's cheekbone then down the sinew of his neck.

    A hand shoots up and circles Mike's wrist, jerking him away.

    “Shit, sorry,” Mike breathes. “I -” For a breath, the overwhelming longing for things to return to normal - where Harvey took care of him, where they had each other’s backs - almost shoves an embarrassing sound from his gut, but Mike’s learned some control over the past few years so he wrenches his wrist free and passes the baby over, gently but without touching Harvey at all.

    “Gotta go. Thanks for the -”

    His throat starts to close so he stops talking, stumbles up, and throws his coat on before darting out the door.

    Harvey doesn't try to stop him.

    Summary

    “Belle asked for you, but I have to work out what I'm okay with you knowing about all of this.”

    “About you, you mean. But you know everything about me.”

    “I'm your boss. It's my job to know.”

    “Right,” Mike says, suddenly exhausted. “Right. Is that why I'm here, Harvey? As your associate?”

    The air stills. “No.” He sounds weirdly defensive.

    “Then what? Because you just hauled me to another state for a weekend.”

    “I know. I know, just -” Tossing his duffle into the closet he calls, “Nothing's gonna change, ok Rookie? When we get home.”

    “O...k?” It's surprisingly difficult to be mad at a man who looks that good in a henley.

    Harvey finishes unpacking first, but when Mike looks up from tossing a few books into the bedside table drawer, his boss is holding the door, watching with his bottom lip caught between his teeth. “I'll show you around.”

    Summary

    Leaning in close, Harvey murmurs, “You’re awfully mouthy for this early in the evening.”

    Mike tilts his head, flirtatious confrontation as the car rolls to a stop. “Bit early in the evening to be discussing my mouth, don’t you think? Sir?”

    “Tell you what,” Harvey muses lowly. “You make me look good tonight, I’ll do more than just discuss it. Fair?”

    Mike gulps and nods, light-headed, and he doesn’t think it’s from yesterday’s blood loss. He can feel Harvey’s breath on his lips, smell his cologne, subtle and smooth, thinks maybe he’s gonna get luckier than he’d hoped, and then with a smirk Harvey reaches across his body and cracks open the door. “Out,” he commands, and Mike sighs, hauling his tired ass out of the car. Figures.
