Station Departure

Work Text:

“You sure you’ve gotta go?” Mia adores her husband; that doesn’t mean he doesn’t make this difficult, sometimes.

“Yeah, baby. I told you, it’s just a few weeks.” Plastered-on smile, reassuring reminder. “And then I’ll be back here, with you, right where I belong.”

“Counting the days already.” He’s easy to love. Generous, gregarious, every wonderful exploitable trait. The kind of man who would see a scared, lost little girl and immediately stop to help her out.

She hugs Ethan tighter. There are a lot of good people in the world, and some days her job is too damn easy.
