Notes: Although this ficlet is labelled as gen, I personally believe it could also be interpreted as slash in the right eyes
As a cop I put my life on the line every day and trust the people I work with to back me up; but to freely trust someone with my heart, well, that’s another story. For years I’ve protected it, shielded it away from the world allowing only those closest to me in. That wall was solid, firm, and strong. Then, I met Blair Sandburg and everything changed. He made me want to believe, to take that leap of faith and start connecting with people on a different level. Now don’t get wrong I still hide behind that wall. I don’t offer my heart up easily, but I give it to him without hesitation; after all, he is my best friend, my partner and my guide. I trust him.
