Genuine [PG - John Reese/Harold Finch - Person of Interest]

This was originally part of a larger "Five Times . . . " fic, but the rest of it wasn't working for me.

Title: Genuine - AO3 version
Fandom: Person of Interest
Pairing/Characters: John Reese/Harold Finch
Rating: PG
Words: 113

Summary: Harold looks mildly surprised.

Disclaimer: Not mine, now or ever.

John does not swallow, or allow his hands to clench, or his face to shift. He looks at Harold and does not blink.

“It’s a genuine offer,” John says. Harold looks mildly surprised. Perhaps there’s a bit of academic curiosity there, but — but nothing else, he thinks.

After a moment, Harold turns back to his computer screen and resumes typing.

“I assure you, Mr. Reese, I have no need of such services.”

John stares at the space where Harold’s collar gives way to skin. He hadn’t really expected any other answer. He could push a little harder, explain that “I would be happy to—” had not been a mere pleasantry.

He looks away.
