Summary: Some things should be simple.
Tim came out of Starbucks with Gibbs’ coffee in one hand and his own Grande Caramel Macchiato in the other, keenly aware of Rule 23.
Naturally Tony had sauntered out into the parking lot the minute he had his own drink, having ascertained there were no baristas worth flirting with.
Before he could kvetch about getting stuck with the coffee bill again, Tim noticed the wistful look on Tony’s face and the source: a 1966 Mustang soft-top, nearly the spitting image of the one Tony had lost in the line of duty.
Some things you never get over.
