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.

That says it all when it comes to the Mahone-Michael obsession, doesn't it. Try as he might he'd never
quite quench that thirst.

Try as he might he'd never quite quench that thirst.

Unless he found Michael, by decoding all of the warped and scattered clues at hand. Michael was such an interesting challenge for Mahone, and with the threat of "Find him or else!" that need to resolve those pixelated bits of data into a complete-enough picture would be overwhelming.
