Ford makes Spike an offer he can’t refuse. But things don’t go exactly to plan, thanks to an act of blind luck… or utter clumsiness. The Lonely Ones begins during Lie to Me in the Season 2 timeline, and then diverges from there.

Author’s Note: Scraping this in just before the challenge deadline ends (the muse was not co-operative), so this is unbetaed. Any and all mistakes are my own. If there is anything glaring, please let me know so I can fix it. This isn't planned to be very long, and I’m hoping to finish it up in the next couple of weeks.

Most of dialogue in this chapter has been pilfered from a particular scene in Lie to Me... I needed to borrow to set the scene. 

I hope you guys like it.
