A/N: Double drabble.
Being the newbie sucked; everyone was always sending him on menial errands and Andy was getting tired of it. When were they going to stop acting like he was nothing more than the team gofer and start treating him as what he was, a fully-fledged field agent? His month-long probation period had ended six weeks ago, but he still didn’t feel as if all his colleagues accepted him completely. Why else would they send him out to get milk and Jack’s dry cleaning?
Arriving back at the Hub to find the rest of the team gone, probably on some more important mission, Andy dropped Jack’s things in his office, and put the milk in the fridge. He should’ve got himself some lunch while he was out because it looked like the others had already eaten, judging by the half-empty pizza box on the kitchen counter.
He was just reaching for a slice when Owen’s voice rang out. “Don’t touch that!”
“What? Why not?”
“It only looks like a pizza. Bloody shape-shifter gave me the slip when I was examining it.”
Andy stared at the ‘pizza’. There were some things about this job he was never going to get used to.
