Burn Notice Gen Drabble: "The Con Man's Cocktail" (PG)

Title: The Con Man's Cocktail
Fandom: Burn Notice
Author: HalfshellVenus
Character: Michael (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: Conning criminals never gets old…
Author's note: For tsuki_no_bara, who requested Burn Notice and little paper umbrellas.

x-x-x-x-x

Michael's not really an umbrella-drink kind of guy, but Stephane loves them, along with big gestures and big plans (and he sure hopes the sleazy import-export/smuggling king next to him is buying all this, because there really isn't a Plan B).

"You're based where?" the guy asks.

"Bordeaux, via Martinique." Michael smiles with too many teeth.

"I don't do a lot of business in religious keepsakes or figurines."

"They are quite valuable," Michael states. "Hollow and easily sealed."

"Hmmm…" The man reconsiders, while Michael finishes his drink. "Another?"

Ah—they're getting somewhere. Michael smiles and signals for the waitress. "Merci."
