"Escape" Life On Mars Drabble Annie-centric Rating-PG

Title: Escape
Fandom: Life On Mars
Character: Annie Cartwright
Rating: PG (slightly dark themes)
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Written for Drabble-a-Day 2011. Prompt from lifein1973 Friday Drabble Challenge #115-Four Plus 3-Prompt: A secret alliance. Thanks to filthgoblin for beta. Remaining snafus are my own.
Summary: The allure of Sam's world.

It’s not easy being a woman in CID.

Things are much better now that Sam’s here but there are still days when Annie feels like she wants to give up. Before Sam, it never occurred to her that things could be better. Now she knows there’s a place, even if it’s a figment of his imagination, where women have respect and even real authority.

Does she have to follow Sam into madness to get there? Take one of those “ultimate steps?” Jump off a roof and wake up being called “Ma'am” instead of “Plonk?”

It might just be worth it
