He was seething, his anger rising as he quickly marched directly at Ruiz.

Looking up, Ruiz snapped, “What the hell do you want Caffrey?”

His response was a right hook that caught Ruiz’s jaw and sent him sprawling backwards. Before he could throw another punch Jones pulled him away. Neal scowled at Ruiz and hissed, “This is your fault.”

Ruiz wiped the blood from his mouth, “You just bought yourself trouble – assaulting an FBI agent.”

Jones stood, hands on hips, between the two men. He clenched his fists, “Not so fast Ruiz, this mess falls back on you. Get your people together and get out of here. I want your reports on my desk in an hour.” Jones took Neal’s arm and walked him away.

Looking down, Neal began trembling as he noticed all the blood – Peter’s blood - that had intermingled and twisted into the blue fibers of his shirt. There was so much blood. He let out the breath he was holding when Jones laid a hand on his shoulder. As he looked up Jones nodded, “Go – be with Peter. Diana and I will take care of things here.”

Neal exhaled and whispered, “Thank you.”

He slid to a stop as he reached his fallen partner and he sank to the pavement. Blinking back tears he laid his hand on his motionless partner. Gently he murmured, “You’ll be okay, you have to be.”

Author’s Note: This is part of an idea I have for an AU where Neal is a police officer and Peter is his K9 partner – any thoughts let me know.
Thanks for reading!

Oh I love this. And in any universe Neal would probably punch the person that let Peter get hurt.

Looking forward to more. :-)

More will be coming! I've expanded this to about 4400 words and I am about halfway through the story I want to tell. Thanks for reading.

Glad you enjoyed the story. There will definitely be more, I have a whole story outlined, just trying to find the time to write it.

I know the feeling - often finding the time is harder than figuring out the story! ;)
