Pairings or characters involved: Stephen and Jack
Notes: I’m just reading Post Captain. As they cross France, disguised as a bear and his trainer, Jack starts to learn more about his friend’s other line of work.
Stephen was finding it increasingly difficult to hide his identity. For the last two hundred miles, he'd been forced to depend upon his intelligence skills and contacts to preserve both their lives.
Jack had to have figured him out by now, had to know what sort of creature he really was. He could hardly have failed to notice.
He was glad that the bear-head prevented him from seeing the realisation growing in his friend’s eyes.
He had told himself before that this deception had been for Jack’s sake, were they ever caught.
In truth, it had been for his own.
