Prison Break Gen Fiction: "The Specter of Salvation" (Mahone, Michael, PG)  
Title: The Specter of Salvation
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Mahone, Michael (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: Michael was the adversary of a lifetime.
Author's Notes: A Mahone drabble for shaitanah. Hope you like it!


Piecing together the mystery of Michael Scofield was as familiar as coming home.

Michael was cleverer than most, his planning more complex. His was a vintage Mahone had longed to sip—the talented amateur, as born to deception as breathing, with an intelligence that rivaled Mahone's own.

Mahone liked to think he'd have been given Michael's case anyway, based on history and merit. But he knew better. He was a puppet now, enslaved by his secrets and addictions, while Michael remained the adversary of a lifetime.

Drugged-out and disgraced, Mahone would strive to the utmost to be worthy of him.

I get the impression that Mahone looks upon Michael as his salvation, his way back. Maybe that's why he went after him with such determination?

Loved it!

Mahone used to be the best of the best, as far as we know, before the dead guy under the birdbath and the drug addiction and the rest of it. Whether or not the Bureau would ever consider him redeemed, I'm sure he always needed to be redeemed to himself. Poor guy. :(

Michael will probably be one of the most fascinating cases ever for Mahone, and he can definitely handle it!
