A good life, the sort that was truly lived, was often more a roller coaster than a gentle cruise. There were ups and there were downs, hills that either offered an exciting flutter or pure dread. Val was fairly certain he was perched atop one of those hills now, but he couldn't see through the fog well enough to know if he was in for a flutter or a full on fall. ...Hell, for all he knew, he'd run out of track.

Still, it was exciting. Exciting was good. It had been too long since he'd had a good thrill.

The doors of the museum were wide open, with signs outside encouraging people to come in and see the items that would be going up for auction soon. Yes, part of this drop involved shutting the doors to what had once been his pride and joy, and while some things had been passed onto other museums or tucked back into his personal collection, some things were simply being sold for charity. By the end of February he'd be leasing the property out, and he would, it seemed, be working for Jack Harkness.

Jack had come crashing into his life on New Years, and somehow one night of idiocy and pleasure had turned into a promise of adventure. He couldn't remember the last time he'd had a real job- One where he wasn't his own boss and doing whatever he liked, that was. ...And he'd certainly never been offered on on the spot before. It was all so strange and exciting, and Val found himself itching to start anew. 

The items for sale were in the main room, but some of the exhibits remained open in the back, where Val was currently sorting through some items and packing them away in large crates. He was bent over, wrapping a large vase when he heard someone enter behind him, and he spoke without looking up from what he was doing.

"I know it says no flash photography, but it's all going away for a while. Take as many selfies as you like."

"I was just appreciating the view," Jack replied with a cheeky grin, eyes squarely on the curve of Val's ass. "By all means, keep packing."

And then he did take out his phone to snap a quick picture before Val could stand and ruin that tempting image.

"Absolutely," he replied, swiping his screen then tucking his phone back into his pocket. He returned Val's smile and crossed to him, close up in the man's personal space without any hesitation.

"Show me what'chu've got."

Jack took the object and studied it, smiling as he recognized it. He turned it over, rolled it around, then held it between his thumb and finger.

"This is a Dogan's seventh eye," he said. "It's harmless to humans, but the Basjiani trade them as an aphrodisiac. I have no clue if it works for them or if it's the same as rhino horn. Can I keep it?" he asked.

"It's like Christmas," Jack grinned.He pocketed the stone and then moved to look in the topmost box. He'd need so much more time and space to adequately appreciate what treasures were hidden inside.

"We should take these back to my office," he said. "Our office, now. I cleaned off a station for you."

Jack chuckled. "Of course I brought my car. You want to load them up and go? We can grab take away or have a pizza delivered and unwrap some stuff."

He meant the boxes, but the lascivious look he gave Val suggested something else entirely.

Jack didn't so much blur lines as take a rubber and erase them altogether. But he liked this little dance and, in a moment of clarity, knew that he should probably keep from snogging Val in front of his staff. So he took up one box.

"I'll see you out there," he called over his shoulder.

Jack had the back of the SUV open, a monstrous vehicle compared to many on the London streets. He leaned against a door with a casual ease.

"You're wasting daylight," he teased. "Let's get that stowed and go. Do you have a preference for food?"

Dutch chuckled at the offer. "I think I'll refrain." She walked farther into the room, hands in the pockets of her coat. "I can't believe I never took the time to come here before, and now you're closing up. Are you leaving town?"

They hadn't seen each other in a while - certainly not since Em and she had stopped seeing each other - but she talked to him with the same easy familiarity as back then.

"Just wondering," Dutch answered easily, wandering closer to a display he still hadn't packed up. She laid her fingers on its edge, as if itching to touch what was on the other side of the glass.

"I feel you," Dutch confirmed, and looked over at him. "So what's the job?"

Studying unusual items for a private company. That sounded right up Dutch's alley, in terms of things she ought to keep an eye out for. "Who's the company?"
