Burn Notice Drabble: "Why Not Romance?" (Sam, Gen)  
Title: Why Not Romance?
Fandom: Burn Notice
Character: Sam (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: Hey, a guy can dream…
Author's Notes: For tsuki_no_bara, who wanted something with Sam and the ladies.
Also for writers_choice ("date").


The tall brunette by the bar was a looker. Sam had heard her talking enough to know she was smart, too.

Ms. Veronica had called it quits two months ago. Sam liked flirting, but after awhile he got bored.

He knew how Fiona felt about Michael. Was it too much to hope someone could love him that strongly, inspire his devotion in return?

If he found that, he'd cherish it—not keep chasing random ghosts from the past.

For now, he'd keep looking. If that brunette wasn't Ms. Right, her flashy jewelry said she just might be Ms. Right Now.

aw, sam. i love that he's looking for love - the genuine article, not just a relationship for a while - and with a smart woman, too. and i totally buy that he'll take an enjoyable short-term fling in the absence of a long-term one. i like that he's a flirty opportunist.

When Sam's been involved with his "Sugar Mamas," he seems to genuinely care for those women and devotes real effort to making them happy. It's also kind of telling that, at least in his current years, he's a serial monogamist.

From his behavior as a friend, we know that he's loyal and he puts his friends' true well-being ahead of himself. I can honestly see him hoping to someday find the right thing, when it comes to love.

But until then, well... he enjoys the journey. ;)
