Fandom: White Collar
Characters: Peter, Neal (Gen, Drabble)
Summary: Neal's tastes run to caviar and champagne.
Author's note: For embroiderama, for the prompt of "Vodka."
"Now this is what I call vodka," Neal says.
They're at some millionaire's mansion, a fundraiser for a favorite charity, investigating whether money's being skimmed off into private accounts. Neal looks right at home (typical). Peter just wants to seem worthy of an invite.
"Vodka has no taste, so what does it matter?"
"The good stuff does. This is smooth."
Smooth is Neal, able to charm information from anyone. "Just remember why we're here," Peter says.
He knows Neal misses the high life, needs it, even. He hopes these small doses are enough to keep him from running after it.
