The Basis of Friendship

Work Text:

When he was visiting Dr. Alex Delaware in the psychologist's home, it was second nature for Detective Milo Sturgis to open the refrigerator and help himself to a beer, or if there were fixings available, to make himself a sandwich.

He felt that comfortable when he was with the man, a far cry from how alienated he felt from his colleagues at the station, who still treated the openly-gay cop as if his homosexuality was something they might catch if he got too close to them.

No one who knew them understood how this odd couple had become friends when they had nothing in common, but Milo knew there was something they did share, a mutual respect for each other, and wasn't that the basis of any true friendship?
