Fic 514: Stalemate
So. Heavy x Soldier. Never done this one before. Enjoy!
“History is full of rivalries!”
Heavy nods. This was true.
“Rome versus Carthage! The Persians versus the Greeks! England versus France!”
Lessons from his school days flash though his memory. The Carthaginian War. The Battle of Platea. The Battle of Agincourt. Pivotal moments each and every one. Some were small nudges. Others changing the course of human history.
He lets himself be impressed that Soldier had been able to rattle off three factual rivalries. Last week it had been the Mayans versus South Korea, with little thought given to the mental gymnastics that had connected the two in his head.
“The United States versus the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics!”
Heavy takes a little exception with that last one. He has little love for the Soviets, although the man sitting across from him cares little for such nuance. Crossing his large arms, he raises a single eyebrow at Soldier, who is leaning on the crate that sits between them.
