Au where Cassian is a supervillain who doesn't really do much evil stuff but he does kidnap that cute doe eyed reporter a lot. To the point where it just becomes a regular Thing they do, because they both know Cassian talks a big game but would never actually hurt Bodhi. So they chat and flirt and banter until the hero bursts in to rescue Bodhi and Cassian escapes with a cackle of "Next time, hero!" and a wink at Bodhi.
“Wow, the smoke was a nice touch,” Bodhi says pointedly, wiggling his fingers in the binds. They’re loose, hardly worth tying, but Cassian has an image to keep up.
“You think so?” Cassian asks.
