Title: Another Sunrise
Pairing/Characters: Jonas, Mack, Bob, Hector, Charles
Rating: PG13
Spoilers: First Responders
Summary: Prompt - Sunrise
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Lots of special ops teams attack at sunrise. Not Jonas. He figures too many people are on alert at that hour. If sunrise is around 0600, he likes to hit at 0430 hours, just when even the latest of late owls have dropped off and the early birds haven't quite dreamed of their alarms going off yet.

The downside of this strategy is when they all come home and have to try to fit back into their family lives, mornings more about making lunches and school buses on time than making the world safe from terrorists, they're out of sync.

So on rare days off after being out in the field a while, Jonas arranges for them not to come home right away. They have a place, a simple yet secure safe house, where they can go and just sleep. It's silent, dark and completely off the grid.

By the time they emerge they're no longer cranky from lack of sleep or faltering from exhaustion. They walk out of their bunker, ready to head home, full of gratitude for being alive for yet another sunrise.

Wow. You are so good.

There's none of your customary excellent dialog here, no hot porn, not even a solitary heartwarming family moment in this fic - and with only narrative and world building you have my heart full. I don't know how you do that (but I can assure you I will try to figure it out!)
