Bodie can't take his eyes off it. It's an ugly bloody thing after all. It looks…utilitarian. Doesn't have the lines, the curves of an MP5, or even an Uzi. They send death flowing from your hands, but this... this spits and curses at the world. This is no dark beauty.

Doyle joked once: "That's not where you got mine from." Not laughing now. Too close this time.

A rustling and he is back, bandaged. Alive. Here are curves. Here are sweet lines and flowing limbs and a promise of warmth in the night. Bodie can't take his eyes off him.
