Ryan asks an innocent question that gets Esposito thinking.

Ryan looked over Esposito’s shoulder while he waited for his partner’s printer to hurry; no use heading over to a (almost) visibly smoking Beckett while she glared at Castle on his own. “Can you imagine that pair growing old together?” Ryan nodded at the silent pair.

Esposito raised an eyebrow, while willing the printer to hurry; he was an excellent multi-tasker.

“The pair of ‘em in an old age home, Beckett beating up Castle with a borrowed, and later paid for, walking stick while he’s trying to talk her into another Nikki Heat book ... and there’s y’printer. Let’s go.”

“Right behind y’bro,” Esposito snatched the mugshot from the printer. It was far too early for this.

Far too early.

Right behind his partner, Ryan’s question niggled in the back of his mind. Could he imagine them growing old together?

“Actually, yeah,” he muttered.

Beckett raised an eyebrow. “Got somethin’ you wanna share with the rest of the class, Esposito?”

“Actually, yeah.” He handed over the mugshot. “This could be what our ...” he caught Beckett’s eye, “suspect,” he corrected, “could look like. Want us to bring him in for questioning?”

“Track him down and bring him in,” Beckett ordered before sitting in front of the murder board.

“Dude, what was that?”

“Just backing you up, bro,” Esposito smoothly lied. “Let’s get this creep.”

Oh that's just awesome. And yeah; I can see them growing old together far too easily.

Thank you! I was nervous about this one as I didn't know I could capture any of the characters that well!
