FOTD - Cat's-Paw

Author: Regret
Rating: G
Story: Radial: Unravel
Challenge: Flavour of the Day - Cat's-Paw: a person used to serve the purposes of another; tool.
Extra: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: A short exchange in the elevator does nothing for Milos and Marrok's relationship.
Notes: I'm out of the habit of writing, which sucks considering I'm supposed to be working on something, so I'm going to try to pocky/FOTD for a week to give myself a kick.

Lifts were awful enough, Milos decided, when they held just him. To be crammed into one with Marrok was plain torture, and his former boss clearly agreed. He sidled closer to Milos wearing an unpleasant smirk. “You’re just a toy, you know. A tool.”

“I know.” He thought he’d be upset?

“Jaska’ll tire of you soon enough.”

This was supposed to be news? “I know.”

“Research still have your paperwork.”

Milos swallowed. “So you’re their tool to get me, just like I am Alex’s, aren’t you?”

Marrok’s ensuing scowling silence felt less like the victory he’d wanted.

Oh, man. And Milos just... knows, like that, how it all is. Sucks so hard for him.

To be fair to Alex (for once, eheh), if he listens to Marrok he'll be doing Alex quite a disservice, because Alex is one hell of a protective bastard when he wants to be, and Milos--as far as Alex is concerned--is his. But unfortunately Milos'll probably listen to Marrok, because of Robin.

Ah damn, it actually turned out more depressing than I'd hoped for...

I really liked the dialogue. Very realistic!

Aww, Milos.

He does have a good grasp on the situation but I don't think he realizes Alex is letting him go.

Glad your back! Missed you and Milos and Alex. :)

You'd think after two years, he'd know Alex just a little better... Poor dozy boy.

I'd actually intended to write something on different characters every day, but these two just wormed their way into my head again and I'm powerless to resist.
