round six prompt post - spoilers

IMPORTANT: Please don't forget to warn for any triggers (these can be found in the Rules post), better to warn when in doubt. If a prompt is not warned for triggers and contains them, it will be screened and you will be asked to re-write it with the appropriate warning. This is to ensure a safe environment for everyone. If you have any questions/concerns regarding your prompt, don't hesitate to use the mod post.

IMPORTANT: Please put what pairing or character your prompt focuses on in the header of the comment!

IMPORTANT: If a discussion starts that has little to do with the prompt itself, please continue or start the discussion over at the Free For All Post located here.

IMPORTANT: When reposting a prompt from a previous round. Please indicate what round the prompt is from.

IMPORTANT: Prompts can be reposted in later rounds, but not in the round directly following the prompt's original round. Prompts from Round Five should be reposted in Round Seven; prompts from Round Three should be reposted in Round Five. We will delete any prompts that I recognize from Round Five.

Round Six will be closed for 48 hours once it reaches ~2500 comments, and will be closed permanently once it reaches ~5000 comments. During the closed times, people are still allowed to post FILLS, but any PROMPTS posted will be deleted.

Refer to the Rules and Guidelines for Posting before posting a prompt/fill.
Direct any of your concerns to the Mod Post.
Both Filled and Unfilled Prompts are archived at our Delicious account.
You can also read comments in flat view, if that makes browsing easier.
Previous Rounds:
Round One
Round Two
Round Three
Round Four
Round Five

Re: fill: ill-fitting black suits (2/2)

Instead he leans his head back, closing his eyes and focusing on the rise and fall of his own chest. But that only reminds him of Mike’s parents and how they took their last breath without even knowing it, and suddenly all Harvey can think of is Mike – Mike who must have felt so lost at such a young age. Who allowed himself to let the words, “he’s my oldest friend” mean more than they should have. Who could still smile so brilliantly when Harvey was looking his way. Who couldn’t find it himself to confide in Harvey about the two people he’d loved and lost – but had told Jessica instead, as she calculated his every word and prepared to squash him beneath her six-inch heels.

And maybe that’s what hurt the most. Not that Mike had never told him – because to be completely fair, Harvey has shared so very little with Mike about his own family – but that when the kid was finally willing to share his story, he gave it freely to someone vying only to hurt him. Who was plotting to expose him and fire him and prove he wasn’t Pearson Hardman worthy. Who couldn’t see his worth and potential and inherent decency as a human being – something that Pearson Hardman has been sorely lacking.

Harvey opens his eyes and looks back at the Manhattan skyline – all the lights shining fiercely in the dark – and all he can think is that Mike deserves better. A better life. A better best friend. A better mentor.

A better Harvey.

And he cringes, shame radiating through him, as he thinks of all the times he told Mike he didn’t care or didn’t want to hear about his problems. Because hearing them from Jessica was ten times worse than anything he could have imagined.

Swallowing the last of his drink, he knows he won’t ever let that happen again.
