"One Love" Life On Mars drabble Nelson-centric Rating-G

Title: One Love
Fandom: Life On Mars
Characters: Nelson, Sam Tyler
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 227. Prompt from lifein1973 Weekly Drabble Challenge #145-Unreliable Narrator. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Nelson has answers. And questions.

“Folks just seem happier with the other Nelson.”

Course, it wouldn’t do for Tyler to know how many other Nelsons there really were. Different accents. Different hair. How long had he been here? When would he leave? The same questions that he knew Tyler was struggling with every day, and all he could do was feed him booze and half-hidden truths because that was his job.

Sometimes he let one of the masks slip, thinking it might help. Or maybe he was trying to help himself remember which Nelson was the real one.

He lost track a long time ago.
