Pairing: Jose Mourinho/Rui Faria. Word count: 2297. Disclamer: all made up. Summary: their story is one hell of a ride. The pitch is wet, the trees are dripping with drops of cold early spring rain, and Rui's hair is plastered to his brow, water getting onto his glasses. "I like you", says José, clear non-sequitur after hours of talking about football. José is a busy man. José doesn't have that much time. But it's José so everything goes the way he wants. They both are soaked to the skin, their throats are raw — they talked and talked, and then José came on with this remark and Rui replied, "I'd have preferred you to like my thesis". José's smile is wicked, at the same time charming and with a bit of danger creeping around the edges. Rui catches the thought, unbidden. "Strap yourself in, it'll be one hell of a ride". José calls him on the phone. Reception is weak, it's thunderstorm in Barcelos, so the line is creaking with noises, but José's voice is loud and clear above it. "You promised to come work with me", José says, and Rui feels sudden rush of adrenaline surge inside. Others talk about mink reading. They are different in everything else. So different in fact, that it's hard to imagine them being even friends.
