    Summary

    Moira raised her chin slightly, gaze never wavering from the faces of her superiors. “Dr. Ziegler has been compromised,” she said—simply, matter-of-fact. Her trysts with Angela were perhaps one of the best-kept secrets in the entire organization; outside of one or two trusted allies—Jesse McCree being one of those—no one knew.

    No one needed to know, as far as Moira was concerned.

    “What do you mean, compromised?” Jack Morrison’s expression hardened. His gaze flickered to Gabriel, seeking clarification. When he found none there, he looked back to Moira.

    Moira, never one to squirm, shifted her weight from one foot to the other. The resounding silence told him everything he needed to know.

    Jack breathed out, hard, and shook his head, looking away. “You’ve gotta be fuckin’ kidding me, O’Deorain.”

    Moira cast her gaze downwards for the briefest of seconds before checking Gabriel’s reaction. His own expression was carefully schooled, impassive and unimpressed. “Well?” she said. “What do we do about this?”

    Jack leaned forward, planting his hands on the surface of the table and leveling Moira with a glare. “You’re the scientist,” he spat. “Uncompromise her.”

    Summary

    “There is nothing to apologize for.” Hanzo didn’t move towards him. “Please, tell me what bothers your spirit.”

    Jesse put his face in his hand with a sigh. “I just…” His shoulders slumped. “I got this feeling I’m about t’wake up from the most wonderful dream and it’s gonna be blood and sweat and pain still.”

    Tears welled up and he blinked furiously to try to drive them away. He just needed a second to get himself under control. “And I know I’m being a wet blanket and ruinin’ the mood we had goin’ on and I can’t seem to stop myself and I just--”

    Flowers bloomed in a riot of color as he was dragged into a hug. A ragged gasp for air and he was suddenly crying into the crook of Hanzo’s shoulder. He broke as strong arms wrapped him up and held him like he was the most precious thing in the world.

    He was not expecting Hanzo Shimada.

    Summary

    Hanzo Shimada is an expatriate student of the Fine Arts, attending college in what he assumes to be a reasonably sedate corner of the American southwest. Jesse McCree is an occasionally leather-clad NPS ranger whose duties extend somewhat further than shooing lost tourists back onto the clearly marked hiking trails. Something weird is going on in the desert south of Santa Fe and their lives unexpectedly come together in the middle of it.
