"White Knight" White Collar drabble Neal/Adler, Peter/Neal Rating-G

Title: White Knight
Fandom: White Collar
Pairings: Neal/Adler, Peter/Neal (both require a bit of squinting)
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011 Day 66. Cheer-up fic for hllangel. Prompt from whitecollar100: Challenge #36-Skin. Thanks to evila_elf for whipping this into shape. Comments and concrit welcome.
Spoilers for Forged Bonds.
Summary: Peter still doesn't understand.



Neal should have realized that Adler was playing him.

To Peter, the whole thing had sounded a bit too cozy for a boss and employee, or even a conman and a mark. Of course Vincent Adler was no ordinary mark. Peter still couldn’t believe that Neal had willingly invested his own money with Adler’s hedge fund.

“Skin in the game,” they'd called it--in Neal’s case pretty much his whole hide--leaving him with nothing but a suit from Adler’s personal tailor.

Why Peter wanted to ask. What did you see in him.

And why do I care so much?
