The day had started off like any other. A morning full of paperwork, a lunch involving a salad he didn't really want... Then a few hours at his desk reviewing cases and a meeting with his boss. Normal things. ...Mundane things. Things he could do in his sleep.

Honestly, as pleased as Spencer was to be back in the field, he had to admit that he didn't feel as challenged here as he had back home. Partly because it was so rare that they were invited in on any cases- And partly because the cases they were invited in on were so straight forward and, well, normal- For lack of a better word. It was to be expected he supposed, statistically speaking at least, that there would be less cases, and that the cases they did have would veer towards the traditional. However, knowing that didn't stop his mind from yearning for a challenge. ...And as a result, he found himself spending more and more time with cold cases.

One in particular had become a bit of a fixation. A series of murders that seemed to stretch from Turkey to Scotland- All with the same MO, and the same signature- Yet also without any leads or even prime suspects, a fact that had only left Spencer even more interested. After nearly a month of digging he'd finally stumbled onto something solid, a lead strong enough that he'd started pulling the files of officers who'd been involved in the original investigation.

Though even with a working theory, he hadn't been certain he was on the right track. ...Not until tonight.

He had been sitting at his usual table at his usual cafe, his coffee getting cold on the table in front of him as he combed through file after file. He only tore himself away from it all long enough to ask the girl behind the counter if she had a spare pen. It only took a moment, however, upon returning to the table he found a letter waiting for him. Using the tip of his freshly borrowed pen, Spencer opened it, Frowning at the sight of a single sentence, typed out in bold letters and all caps.

LEAVE IT ALONE.

Glancing around, he couldn't see anyone suspicious, and he had to assume that whoever had left the note hadn't lingered to see his response. Reading it again, he brought his cold coffee to his lips, taking a sip and then immediately spitting it out into a napkin. A bitter tang lingered in his mouth, and as he pulled the plastic lid off atop the paper cup, he instantly felt ill. ...It was impossible not to see the very large, and very dead, rat inside.

Was it five years? He’d stopped going to the meetings long ago, but was it five years since he last used? Seemed a life-time. A life-time of good behavior, of setting up his business and working hard. He’d achieved so much in these years. He had a lovely and dedicated work-force, and lived a full life with all four of his appearances.

He kept busy. That was the key to staying clean. Keep busy, work hard. And he knew the importance of staying clean.

And he knew all about the slippery slopes back to drug abuse. And he knew every preachy sermon by heart.

And yet…

And yet, here he was. Buying white powder from a man in an alley. First step down the slippery slope to using again. He knew it. He wasn’t that drunk. He knew what he was doing. He knew that this was a dangerous idea. He knew what drugs could do to the formerly addicted.

Yet his hands ached to have some of it. Now. For no reason except a deep desire to fuck it all and have a good time. Just once. Just tonight. He’d gotten clean once, he could do it again. But not tonight. Tonight he just wanted the wonderful feeling that came with using.

He left the alley to go to a club, or a pub, or anywhere that had a toilet-seat he could use.
