Chapter 4
Author's Note: Takes place during 1x22 (Darkness on the Edge of Town). Some dialogue borrowed from this episode as well as episode 1x19.

Tommy was reclining on the couch in his office, staring into his glass of Scotch as if it held the answers to life's mysteries, when Oliver found him.

"Hey," Oliver said, settling down next to Tommy, a hand falling to his thigh.

Tommy looked up, a small smile pulling his lips up. "Hey. How's Walter?"

"He looks good. Better than when I found him," Oliver said. "Felicity showed up with flowers."

"That was nice of her. That was why she started working with you, after all; to find Walter," Tommy said, intertwining his fingers with Oliver's.

"Walter seemed happy to see her," Oliver mused, glancing down, his thumb stroking the back of Tommy's hand. "How are you doing?"

"I'm great, can't you tell?" Tommy snarked, finishing off his drink and setting the glass on the floor.
