Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 239. Prompt from padawanpooh: Alias - Regret. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome. Takes place post-series.
Summary: No one knows you better than your adversary.
Sark spots Mr. & Mrs. Vaughn the minute they come in.
They still look like a perfect American couple. He knows better than most their individual demons and the tortured histories behind those beautifully maintained facades. Michael always got a twisted thrill out of “interrogating” him, and dear Sydney was never very good at hiding her secret longing.
Somewhere, back in the States, they have a “normal” life, a house, even children. The boredom must be maddening. The intel he used to lure them to Lisbon is real, but so is his desire.
Either way, he’ll profit from the deal.
