Obligatory Sweatshirt Story
by Ainm





A/N: My rather silly, all-dialog homage to the beloved fanon staple of "shirt pilfered in order to feel closer to the object of his affection." Another one of the "everybody's got to do it at least once and now it's my turn" ventures in Sentinel-land for me. :-) I didn't, however, manage to use the obligatory line of "and never returned to him," so here it is in the note. ;-)

"Try again."

"I was out of clean clothes?"

"Then second... does it help if I tell you that I've got one of your dirty flannel shirts in my closet?"

"It helps, man -- it really helps."
