Summary: Thrown together by Cowley and by chance, it’s loathe at first sight for Bodie and Doyle. Used to operating solo, Doyle is not impressed when he’s put to babysitting a saucy ex-mercenary who is not even part of CI5. When what was supposed to be an easy assignment turns into a race for survival, the two men will have to use their respective skills to work together if they hope to make it home alive. An encounter with an angry stoat will be the least of their worries as they struggle to surmount the increasing obstacles in their way. The experience will leave neither man untouched, but it remains to be seen whether they’ll acknowledge the impact it has made.
Notes: Author’s Note1: With special thanks to dawnebeth for the medical information and the quick once over for Brit-checking and to silvan_lady for the location information. My undying gratitude to my brilliant beta, catlover2x who talked me down from the metaphorical ledge when I was ready to chuck it all in because I couldn’t work out what the hell I was doing with the story. A very big thank you to togsos for the lovely artwork. I am in absolute awe of your talent. And thank you also to the mods for organizing and keeping spirits up and motivated.
Author’s Note2: Quote is from Hamlet.
