    Summary

    “You’re being held here against your will, right?” Hank asked, wanting to make sure he understood the basics of the situation. The cell itself was a pretty big tip-off, but Hank had seen people do crazier things in his lifetime.

    One of Connor’s hands clutched at a hole, fingertips bent over the edge of it, peering at Hank hopefully. “Yes.”

    “Then I’ll be back."

    Summary

    “Guess I’m not really looking for friends right now.”

    Connor looks at the bottle in Hank’s hand, and the time of day, and the fact that this was his first stop after work on a route that veritably leads back to his home on Michigan Drive, and he wants to somehow connect those things to the notion that Hank maybe seems like someone who could use a friend right now, and maybe Connor could use a friend in this new world too, but there’s no way to articulate any of that without revealing too much about himself or too much about what he knows of Hank. So he remains stuck on the other side of that wall and says, “Okay.”

    “Hey… another time, maybe.”

    It’s the kind of hollow sentiment people offer one another when there’s nothing left to say. Still, Connor echoes it. “Another time.”

    Summary

    Hank never gave much thought to Connor actually going out to get the upgrade. It seemed more like a passing fantasy or an allegory on what it meant to feel or some shit, not a plan put in place.

    A question about sensation leads to an upgrade being obtained.

    Summary

    Connor’s eyes were wide, his teeth grit, his nails digging into his scalp until small threads of blue streaked down his forehead as he hunched over in the waiting room. He thought back to all of the moments he had chastised Hank for making unhealthy food choices, or for seeking relief at the bottom of a fifth, or for disregarding his own safety in lieu of the occasional game of Russian Roulette.

    “Your health is important, Lieutenant. You shouldn’t drink so much, Lieutenant. Why do you do this to yourself, Lieutenant?” It had been easy to make those judgements back when he lacked any personal source of grief to draw from. Now that he understood his partner’s pain, Connor only wished his body was capable of absorbing ethanol – anything to numb him from his current mental anguish.

    I am a hypocrite.

    Summary

    He wants to see all the parts of Yuri no one else gets to see, the jubilant, the exhausted, the introspective. He doesn’t want to let this moment go. He doesn’t want to hop on to a plane in the next day or so and have Yuri forget about him all over again. It happened once, it could happen again.

    He won’t let it this time.
