At the Mercy of Unwanted Emotions

Title: At the Mercy of Unwanted Emotions
Fandom: Life on Mars
Rating: G
Word Count: 100 words (drabble!)
Notes: Gen. Based on daedal_dream's excellent vid Happy Now.




Sam hates this place. Hates how it makes him feel --- raw and open and like a pinprick is a bullet-wound. Hates it because he needs it, every single day. Hates it because he thinks, in some twisted fashion, that it’s deserved retribution for the many years he spent carefully deleting all of these nasty human glitches.

Everything is hard-won here. Everything comes at a price. He’s learnt that easiness evokes wariness. Better a punch than a smile, an argument than a compliment, Gene Hunt’s wrath than Annie Cartwright’s empathy.

Sam hates this place. Hates it because he loves it, really.
