Note: 1) This drabble is the first in a series of drabbles called Crimin4l Numb3rs. I consider each drabble, or chapter as calls them, to be a seperate fic. I am choosing to post them as one story here to prevent my bio page from getting cluttered and to take any guesswork out of the correct order to read the drabbles.
2)The idea for this series was given to me by fanfictionrules who got it from alleskleber. I'd like to thank both of them for the awesome idea.

Disclaimer: I do not own Don Eppes, David Sinclair or any other of the Numb3rs characters, items or situations. I only lay claim to the original aspects of the fic.

"My client came here voluntarily to answer questions, not to be interrogated!"

"Your client is a suspect in an ongoing investigation," David retorted.

"Based on what evidence?"

"We have several solid leads."

"No, you don't," the suspect stated calmly, his entire posture relaxed; confident. "Or I'd have been arrested and placed in an interrogation room."

David turned his head slightly to meet the dark fathomless gaze, forcing himself not to flinch under the weight of it. "Really?" he demanded, attempting to remain in control of the conversation.

"Yes. It's standard procedure."

"And you'd know all about that given your past, wouldn't you? Not to mention exactly how to plan and execute an attack as complex as Tuesday's."

"All right, that's enough. We are done here," the lawyer declared as he put his legal pad in his briefcase and rose to his feet before turning to face his client, tone respectful. "Sir?"

Don Eppes slowly stood up and smiled smugly at Agent Sinclair. "It's been a pleasure talking with you," he taunted before he turned and strode confidently out of the room, forcing agents to make way for him as he crossed the bull pen on his way to the elevator.
