Artistry

“Hey, Facey, you okay?” asked Murdock, closing the van’s sliding door behind him as he got in. “Face?”

“What? Oh, yeah, Murdock, I’m okay.” Face sat up a little in his seat, and straightened his tie. “Why wouldn’t I be okay?”

“There’s just this look you get. You only get that look when we’re working with people who’ve been scammed.”

“There’s no look, Murdock,” Face protested.

“There’s a look,” said B.A., getting into the driver’s seat. “Not a happy look, neither.”

“Right,” said Murdock. “Not happy.”

“Guys,” said Face. “Why would I have a problem dealing with con artists? I am a con artist, remember?”

“Ah!” said Murdock and B.A., together.

“What?”

“You ain’t like them, Face,” B.A. said bluntly. “You don’t con people outta stuff they can’t afford to lose.”

“And why not?” asked Face. “What makes me so special?”

“Not just special,” said Murdock. “You’re good. Tell ‘im, Hannibal.”

Their CO got into the front passenger seat. “Tell what to who?”

“Actually, colonel, it’s ‘whom’,” said Face. “And you don’t have to tell me anything.

Hannibal looked between them, eyes narrowed, ending with Face. “I put you on my team for a reason, lieutenant,” he said, equal parts stern and affectionate.

Face took a deep breath. “Yes, sir.”
