White Collar Fic: Flesh and Bones  
Written for whitecollar100 Challenge #037 – Bone

Title: Flesh and Bones
Pairing/Characters: Peter, Clinton
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 300
Spoilers: Pilot
Summary: When Neal's implicated in bond forgery again Peter thinks outside the box
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

"No..." Peter shook his head but couldn't remove his eyes from the near perfectly forged bond with the tiny NC included that could only be discovered under a magnifying glass. "No, I'd know if Neal was back in business. I'd feel it in my bones."

"Look," Clinton lowered his voice, "I brought this to you at home because I don't want to believe it either. But when the Chicago field office called asking about a forger named Caffrey? Peter, it makes sense. He can't put forged bonds into play in New York without us knowing, but sliding a few under the radar a thousand miles away? I hate to admit it, but it's a really good plan."

"They're wrong," Peter pushed the document away, "or these are leftovers from when Neal was doing bonds before prison."

"Think about it! The bank manager described a handsome charming man with dark hair, blue eyes and a great smile. The fence cut a deal by giving them the name Caffrey and dates in the last year they did business together. It adds up!"

"But Neal's never been out of his anklet long enough for a trip to Chicago!" Peter protested.

"He's manipulated his anklet before," Clinton reminded him gently. "You know, maybe he found someone who looks enough like him to pretend to be him there while he does the forgeries here. I mean, you yourself have impersonated him, so why not?"

Peter stopped for a moment, picking up the document and staring at it anew. "I still don't believe Neal's involved with this, but if a talented artist with dark hair and a conman's charm is at work in Chicago under the name Caffrey?" He turned his gaze to Clinton, eyes lit up. "How do we know Neal doesn't have a brother?"

Yes, this fic probably should be called Flesh and Blood since it deals with the possibility of Neal having kin (Caffcest!), but I really wanted to hook in Peter feeling so certain of Neal it's 'in his bones'. (Plus the whole prompt thing. Hehehe)

Wheeee! I am all for Neal having a brother. Maybe even a twin. Dare I ask for more or is this a standalone?

Brother POV?

Ha ha! Nice try! I think the world might implode if Neal had a twin.

(Now I hear Reid in my head saying "evil twin" and "eviler twin"! LOL)

I am so voting for Neal having an Evil Twin.

HEE! I tell you what, if a drabble prompt comes up that gives me a twin bunny, I'll try my hand at it, but no promises. ;-)

Give it a couple of weeks. Something might pop up that works. ;-)

you should have known the temptation of double Caffrey was too much for just a tease. *g*
