Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
The clock on the wall counted down towards midnight; another year was drawing to a close. Drake thought back over the ups and downs of the last twelve months; the cases they’d solved and those they hadn’t, the relationships that started only to fizzle out, the break-ups, and the depression that inevitably followed. It had been quite a year.
Five… four… three… two… one…
“Happy New Year, Drakey!”
Arms wrapped around him, warm lips pressed against his, and as he returned JJ’s kiss, for the first time in a long time, Drake looked forward to the coming year with hope.
