WITNESS PROTECTION AU!!!
Super bad mob boss is on trial for everything under the sun, but everyone is confident that he’s going to walk because he always does. But then the hotshot prosecutor nails the case and sends the mob boss away, and suddenly there are death threats and acts of violence, culminating in the death of the prosecutor’s wife. For his own protection, the prosecutor is whisked away into the Witness Protection program.
Now, two years later, the prosecutor is Wes Mitchell, living in the middle of Bumfuck, Nowhere. He’s a grocer or bookstore owner or some other small, nondescript job, which bores him out of his mind because he had all these plans to make the world a better place back when he was a lawyer, and now look at him. He understands that it’s for his own protection, but god, he wishes something would liven up his life.
And then Travis Marks crashes into his life, a guy who was heading through town without looking back until he got into an accident and wrecked his bike. Now he has to stay in town until he can get his bike repaired, which FOR FIC REASONS might take a while because they have to order out for parts.
So Travis hangs around town, and he gets to know Wes, and they start hanging out and even going out. Wes knows better than to hope for anything–Travis is a drifter, and Wes is in WitSec, it’s not a good idea to get close to anyone, but he really likes Travis, and he thinks that this could be exactly the kind of thing he was hoping for to liven his life a little.
So of course it all goes to hell, the bad guys find out where he is, there is probably at least one shoot out, and secrets are revealed and feelings are exposed and all sorts of feel-good crap.
In the end, Wes has to be relocated, but this time, Travis comes along with him.
Bonus points if:
a) Travis is a hitman hired by the super bad mob boss to find and kill Wes and he can’t because he’s in luuuuuurv, and he gets to be relocated in exchange for turning state’s witness on the guys who hired him
b) Travis is just a regular guy running from shit of his own, and that shit catches up to him in the middle of Wes’s little town, and that’s why the big bads find Wes and shits goes down, so obvs Travis has to be relocated for his own protection.
