One Thing

Work Text:

An assassin’s life is seldom pretty, and Maylene’s late owners used her hard. There are scars, but Ronald has never flinched – even seeming to find them beautiful. He is not Maylene’s first, or even her fourth or fifth, but Ronald is the first to give her pleasure and the first to be… kind with her.

Ronald Knox is a scandal. He’s a ladies’ man in all senses of the word and someone Maylene is sure she shouldn’t open her door to in the night. He’s only there for one thing, right?

But, oh, how well he does that one thing.
