Summary: Scene filler for 1x05: Power Hungry. Takes place during the scene in which Olivia tells Charlie that she's been "seeing" John. Charlie wishes for impossible things.

Impossible Things

“I saw him last night,” she says about John.

Of course she did. Charlie understands; the man who betrayed them all is dead but not gone.

But for a second he lets himself wish for what will never be – that Olivia would see him.

Not the trustworthy pal she’s convinced he is. Not the competent agent he knows he is.

Him. As a man.

“It’ll get easier,” he says, after he warns her not to beat herself up, and brushes his fingertips over her sleeve. He watches her walk away, unsure whether the words were meant for her or himself.

A/N: I can see the possibilities in both Olivia/Peter and Olivia/Charlie. Regardless, I'm convinced Charlie has a thing for Olivia, even though she's clearly grieving John. :) He's a great character, and I couldn't resist popping into his head for just a moment.
