The door knob rattles behind Angela, Lucy pushes her way in, Tim takes a moment to give her a once-over. She looks normal, but he can tell that she’s a little rattled. It’s how she holds her mouth. They’d caught up last night; having dinner at a Mediterranean place she likes, he’d picked her up and after dinner, they had driven aimlessly up the PCH. Tim missed riding with her more than he could say, and sometimes they just set out and drove, not on patrol, or working a case, but enjoying the familiarity of being shoulder to shoulder. There was an intimacy to it that scared him sometimes. Made him feel half drink with possibilities other times.
Lucy had caught him up on the case that Lopez was working. She’s told him about half a dozen things as they drive, her coconut shampoo drifting over the consul.
Lucy meets his gaze, “somethings off about the whole situation.”

The evolution of Tim, Lucy, and Tamara as they become a family.
“Oh my god, I love you,” she breathes, and then she’s gulping down the steaming liquid, oblivious to the way Angela’s head snaps around so fast that her hair, still down, slaps against her face in a dramatic show of shock.
Tim laughs, his chest rumbling, as he takes a drink of his own coffee.
“I, unfortunately, know what you’re like in the mornings now, Chen. Bringing you coffee is just a public service, really.”
Lucy half heartedly flips Tim off, and Angela isn’t the only one staring now. Nyla, next to her, is repeatedly punching her shoulder, eyes wide and mouth open, and Angela laughs but shakes her head.
