"This' Megan," Don was saying, introducing Colby to everyone on the team. "And David. You'll meet Charlie later."

"Hey," David said, holding out his hand.

"Nice to meet you," Colby said.

"Same here," David said. "I'm sure we'll get along just fine."

"Uh, yeah, definately," Colby said, feeling a cold fist in his gut. He knew how to question a man in seven languages, how to strip and reassemble twenty different kinds of guns and five types of IEDs, could dodge kicks and punches from a dozen fighting styles, and could ask a woman her number in fifteen tongues...But how do you tell a guy you're dating his sister? recognizing David from one of the photos she kept around the apartment.

"Great," Don said. With a clap of his hands, "Well, c'mon, first day on the job, and you're already in a case."

"Need me to grab your coat, Granger?" David asked, with a tone that in most timelines would come to be recognized as humor.

the end.
the title is drawn from the classic scifi story If all men were brothers, would you let one marry your sister?

Title: "If all men were brothers..." 2

"You look great," Don said.

"Thank you," Val told them both.

"Where is he?" Charlie asked, curious about this man who'd stolen Val's heart. Won it, Charlie corrected himself.

"She's right over there," Val said, pointing to the young woman standing next to the pastor.

Charlie's jaw very nearly hit the lawn. "Amita," he said at last, not sure whether this was a greater punch to the gut from her or from Val. I suppose the bit about the banker in India, that's a bit of truth to dodge unwanted conversations - it certainly worked with Dad.

Val nodded.

"Congratulations," Charlie managed to say.

the end
