Six weeks had passed since Felix had last sought Shannon's contact entry in his phone. Six weeks since he'd walked out of their apartment, leaving behind almost everything he owned. Six weeks since the truth of his past had torn apart the facade of his present.

Six weeks since he'd seen or spoken to Shannon at all.

I'm on my way to collect my things. I will be there in 15 minutes.

His text to Shannon was brief and perfunctory, and painfully exact. Precisely fifteen minutes after he had tapped the send button, Felix was at the door of the apartment he had shared with Shannon for such an excruciatingly short time. His keys were halfway out of his pocket before he realized that Shannon might have changed the locks. He stopped, hesitated, almost turned around and left.

Then he knocked, three sharp raps on the door.

When the text message came Shannon thought it might be Aaron with news. The FBI agent agreed to look into who had sent the pictures of Felix and, as Shannon had requested, was keeping it as quiet as possible. At the sight of Felix's name on his phone his heart jumped into his throat. He'd spent the last six weeks swinging between anger at his lover and anger at the blackmailers (who had yet to even try to blackmail him). Beneath the stronger emotions was a hope that Felix would return to him, like their previous fights and, beneath that, was a small fear of what the wizard would be like if he saw him again.

The words of the text message were as painful as Felix had wanted them to be. Even angry, Shannon was too easily hurt by his lover. He took the allotted time to steel himself against the inevitable. By the time the knocks sounded on the door, Shannon had his mask in place.

"Did you forget your key?" he asked after opening the door.

"Last time I checked this was your home too," Shannon said, still blocking the doorway.

"Oh?" Shannon was a calm and stone faced as ever. "I'm happy to hear I won't have to burn your books to make room in my closet then. Though I am surprised you would subject yourself to living with neighbors such a those."

No. For a moment the mask slipped and Shannon almost said the word out loud, but then it was back in place and he stepped aside.

Shannon focused on closing the door after Felix had past. "I am having someone look into who sent the photographs," he said casually. Once the door was closed, he had no more excuses to avoid looked at Felix as he continued. "He is someone I trust to keep things quiet and especially away from my brother's ears."

Shannon remained stoic. "Aaron Hotchner," he said. "He's doing this as a favor to me, in his own time and unofficially."

Shannon raised a golden eyebrow. "You wouldn't blame the people when sent the photographs in the first place?"

"I'm surprised you didn't try to find the blackmailers then," Shannon said as he followed.

"Not even for revenge?" Shannon asked.

"Neither do I," Shannon said. He could think of few things more revolting. "But I don't want to let them get away with it either."

Shannon studied his lover for a moment in silence. Then he asked, "you're really leaving?"

"You're not a-" He couldn't say it. He crossed his arms in front of his chest as a defense against the word. "Last time I checked it was my decision who I chose to sleep with."

"I've already done that," he snapped. "Unfortunately, for all his wondrous learning he's still an imbecile."
