A/N: I wrote this little one shot a little while back. Enjoy! Dedicated to TheGothAndTheGeek.


Pete Lattimer watched interestedly as his partner, Myka Bering, ransacked Leena's kitchen.

"What are you doing?" he asked her, and she spun around. Her expression was not dissimilar to that of a little kid having been caught by his mom with his hand in the cookie jar.

"Looking for something," she informed him dismissively, hoping that he'd take the hint and leave. Needless to say, he didn't.

"Looking for what?" he pressed. She glared at him, wondering whether Pete had anything to do with the mystery disappearance.

"My sugar-free oatmeal cookies," she exclaimed, glaring angrily at the unfortunate cupboard that she currently had open. She closed it again.

"Well, I didn't take them," Pete replied, quickly denying her unspoken accusation.

"Really?" she eyed him carefully, like an eagle might survey its prey.

"Really," he answered.

"Are you sure?" She took a step towards him.

"I'm sure." Pete sidestepped and walked around her. He opened a cupboard and looked at the row of five cookie tins. He eyed them carefully before picking one out. "Try this one. I think I've seen them in there."

He handed it to Myka, who took it from him and pulled off the lid. Sure enough, her sugar-free oatmeal cookies stared right back at her. Pete opened another tin and removed a milk chocolate chip cookie from it before placing it back in the cupboard.

"Milk or juice?" he asked, and Myka looked up.

"Either," she replied, and glared at him. "If you don't take my cookies, then how did you know where they were?"

"Vibes," Pete answered.

"Then how come three are missing?" Myka asked him.

"You count your cookies?" Pete questioned her, his tone full of disbelief. Myka nodded, before putting her cookie tin back on the cupboard shelf and closing the cupboard door. She took Pete's cookie out of his hand. "Oh, of course you do.

Pete poured out two glasses of milk. "I thought you didn't eat sugar," he commented.

"Revenge calls for desperate measures." Myka informed him and bit into the cookie, which was almost as sweet as her revenge.
