Fandom: Welcome to the Punch
Pairing: Jacob Sternwood/Max Lewinsky
Jacob knew hate and he no longer saw it in Lewinsky's eyes. The investigations were over and the right heads had rolled, so he and Lewinsky had met to finish what was between them.

Now Jacob didn't know what they were.
They had fought; inevitably, but with Lewinsky on the floor beneath him, he was no longer sensing the rage. He could feel Lewinsky shivering where he had the man pinned down and he realised this was not about hate at all.
They had both lost, could they both find?
