AN: This is old. Written in 2009, old. But I found it buried on my hard rive and decided to polish it up and post it. It takes place somewhere in an imaginary season 4 or 5. Enjoy and please review!

Going through Mac's purse one day, Dick finds a Box cutter. When he asks her about it, the only reply he gets is that it draws less suspicion than a switchblade.

"Um, how?"

" If someone asks, I can say I need it for craft projects."

"Babe, you don't do craft projects."

"Not the point. Besides. Veronica carries a taser. That's way more suspicious."

He never tells her, but he sleeps a little easier knowing that Mac is actively refusing to be a victim. The two of them know better than most, you can never be too careful in Neptune.
