Title: Above The Fog #3
Author: voleuse
Fandom: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Wallace & Veronica
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Notes: S1, no spoilers



The tinny ringtone of Usher's latest cuts off when Wallace hits "Talk."

"Hey, stud."

He can picture, exactly, Veronica's smile. She uses it whenever she's trying to con someone. Including him.

"I need a favor."

"Right." He doesn't smile, because she can hear it, too. "Does it involve cheerleaders?" There's always a chance.

"Maybe." She draws the word out, so he knows it doesn't.

Yet.

"And Wango Tango tickets?"

"Sure." Her voice pitches higher, which means sarcasm. "I'll just wave my magic wand."

"I'll hold you to that." He takes out his notebook. "So whose file do you need today?"


###

God give us men. The time demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith, and willing hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honor; men who will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue
And dam his treacherous flatteries without winking;
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog
In public duty and in private thinking.
- Josiah Gilbert Holland

Good Wallace voice here. He's aware she's using him but puts up with it. Of course, the teasing is necessary.
