FAKE Double Drabble: Witness Unprotected

Title: Witness Unprotected
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Diana Spacey, Dee, Alicia Grant, Ryo.
Rating: G
Setting: Vol. 7, Act 19.
Summary: Diana and Dee have an important federal witness under their protection. Or at least they did have.
Written Using: The dw100 prompt ‘Missing’.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble and a half, 250 words.

Alicia Grant is supposed to be under witness protection, but she’s given her protectors the slip. Or more accurately, she slipped a sleeping powder of some kind into their drinks, before slipping out. All FBI Agent Diana Spacey and NYPD Detective Dee Laytner had to do was relax in the penthouse of the Plaza Hotel overnight and make sure Alicia stayed put, but they failed miserably.

Understandably, Diana is furious with herself as well as Dee. Because the two of them couldn’t say no to a little drinkie, her key witness is now missing, and quite possibly in danger. After all, Alicia’s husband is mob boss Leo Grant, and the man she’s supposed to be testifying against is a Chicago dealer by the name of Bennett, who’s trying to muscle in on the New York scene. Alicia’s certainly not short of enemies, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if someone put a hit out on her, and now she’s out there somewhere with no protection.

Just perfect.

It’s a big surprise when Ryo, who isn’t even supposed to be on duty that night, shows up at the penthouse door with none other than the missing witness, thankfully still in one piece. Typically, Diana doesn’t hold back, letting Alicia know just how unimpressed she is with the other woman’s behaviour. Just as typically, Alicia is completely unfazed.

Diana is quite sure that by the time this witness protection gig is over, she’s going to have more than a few grey hairs.

The End


That must be a difficult job. Maybe not so much keeping watch on the spouse of a criminal, but certainly having to protect actual criminals until they can testify.

And Alicia sure didn't make it easy either, sneaking out every chance she got. Not that Alicia was really a criminal, it was her father's organisation and she wanted out with Leo, but Leo was primed to take over on her father's death...

Technically I guess she did end up a criminal after killing two people, one of them her own husband, but I still kind of liked her. At leas she only murdered two bad guys.

Thank you!
