: In this alternate universe, Peter Burke is an FBI agent recovering from gunshot wounds, his career is on hold and he’s becoming frustrated with the lack of progress in his recovery. Neal Caffrey is not a con artist, forger and thief, but a veterinarian who is, himself, recovering from a terrible and abusive relationship. Peter, and his wife, Elizabeth, have a very special marriage – they have, on many occasions, let others into their life and their bed. Peter and Elizabeth have been gently wooing Neal, who wants to be part of their lives, but is still afraid to enter into any serious commitment. Elizabeth, who had initially pursued Neal, is now wondering if a relationship with the young veterinarian is right for her.
A/N: Continues the story that began in last year’s entry for the polybigbang
, A Life Less Ordinary
, but you do not need to read it to understand what is happening here.
Many thanks to my Beta Reader in Chief, miri_thompson
, and to theatregirl7299
for their endless support and cheerleading.
The prologue to this story was adapted and expanded from a story I wrote for my timestamp meme in July, All You Need to Do Is Walk Away
, which is now off-line.
