Notes: This is a small drabble that was inspired by one of my fave quotes from Star Trek, from the original episode „Balance of Terror“, I used it at the end. It's the short piece that inspired this longer version and others yet unwritten/unfinished.

In another reality
by Belladonna

The shot rang out loudly in the silence. Hutch watched as his target slid slowly down the wall, leaving behind a bloody smear where he touched the stone. The now cooling body had a shocked and somewhat surprised look on his face, dead eyes staring blankly ahead, towards his killer. He smiled a cold smile, curling around the corners of his lips and allowed himself one last look onto the dead man slumped on the floor.

„You know“, Hutch said, the icy smile still on his lips, ice in his blue eyes. „In another reality we might have become friends.“
