Notes: For primeval_denial: Becker drabble tree
Previously posted in the drabble tree but reposted here as I like to keep everything together.
Prompt/words: the two of them sitting close
Becker fought the urge to storm over and drag Philip away from Connor when he saw the two of them sitting close, heads together. Connor had laughed off his concerns that Philip’s interest was more than just professional but Becker was good at reading people. He could see what Philip was doing, playing on Connor’s desire for someone who shared his love of science, using it to his advantage.
Connor looked up and a wide smile spread across his face. Becker couldn’t resist shooting Philip a smug grin as Connor came to greet him, the other man all but forgotten.
