Author's Note: After all this time, an update! I had a germ of an idea, and considered writing a full short for it, but in the end decided it would work better as a drabble. Anyway, think of it as a little bonus.

Thoughts

They're thoughts. Just thoughts. Thoughts don't mean anything. They're more like observations, really. And observations are impartial. Aren't they?

And yet…I know I put up a tough front. I have to, out of survival. You'd understand if you knew what I've gone through. Knew about Larry.

But I can't ignore the little things. The curve of your lips. The cut of your suit. The humour in your eyes when you flirt. The pain in them when I push you away. And they make my heart ache.

I can keep you out of my bed, Mike Gambit. Why not my thoughts?
