"Your dad's fine," Billy's calm voice said on the phone. "He's settled in at the military hospital."

"Is he..."

"Complaining about the food already? Absolutely." Billy's tone turned serious. "Put him out of your thoughts. I've got him."

Don relaxed a little. "Then why are you calling?"

"Your dad just needs to know Charlie's okay, so I promised him I'd call."

"Ian phoned in saying he and Charlie are secure. He'll only tell me they're no longer in California."

"Ian's good, Don. If he doesn't want to be found, no one will find him."

"That's what I'm counting on."

This fic was custom written for dance_the_code as part of the Four for Fic promotion at numb3rs100.

This story is tenth in the Obshina Series based on the episode Backscatter.

Since the series is 20 drabbles long, this marks the halfway spot.

We leave Charlie/Ian here and check in with Billy briefly before going back to Don and the main case to find out what his plan is.

Colby fans stay tuned. He gets a chance to redeem himself in the next installment. ;-)

Thank you to dance_the_code for supporting numb3rs100. I know you didn't specifically ask for case fic, but it is part of the larger story of Ian protecting Charlie.

I have to say, I'm really enjoying this series and knowing that Don's friends are protecting his family while Don chases down the bad guys is just so... I can't find the word I need. Not sweet or cute, sort of reassuring, but that's not really it either. Gives Don freedom I guess. I just hope that he has someone watching his back and protecting him too!

This series is marvelous. I am enjoying the relationship between Charlie and Ian. Ian is so protective while Charlie needs someone with an ability to protect him. Don can concentrate on his job knowing that Ian will keep Charlie safe.

I think this series was made possible by the fact that canon gives us *two* strong alpha males that Don would trust with his life, and by extension his family's lives: Billy and Ian.

I could dismiss Alan from the story, even though he's the one who got shot, because once Billy was assigned to him there was nothing to worry about. I mean, he's at a military hospital while Charlie's in a motel in the middle of nowhere. Clearly Alan's safer, but there's that tiny chance of an inside job that leaves a real element of danger.

Don's not the type to go sit in a safe house while someone else hunts down Gregor, so while job one is keeping his family safe once that's done he's going to go all Dark!Don on Gregor's ass. ;-)

Glad you like it.

Dear, sweet Emma,

As always this is perfect. Thank you for sending the fics to me directly, it was great finding them in my inbox when I returned.

Thank you so, so much.

So I bet you had a happy inbox today! :-)

You now have the entire series - all 20 parts.

It will take me a while to get it all published, but at least you have it to enjoy for now - cliffhanger and all. ;-)

Thanks again for all the N100 stories...
