Blood pounding in his ears, lungs screaming, he forced his aching legs to run faster. The others were close behind but that didn’t matter. He was winning.

He hurled himself across the finish line with a ragged cry of triumph.

“Well done, son!”

For a moment he dared to believe it was his own father with such pride in his voice. Then the boy opened his eyes and banished the daydream.

Of course his father wasn’t there. Work always took priority over his son’s sports day.

Hilary Becker swiped away the tears that dared ambush him.

Crying was for losers.

Awwwwwwwwwwwww!!! Meepmeepmeepmeep!!!
Poor Becker! And that's how his running got so flaily-armed, he was probably wiping away the tears as he went!

Lol! I know, I'm mean and horribe to poor little mini!Becker. I just can't seem to stop writing angsty young!Becker backstory drabbles. There was this one as well, which is probably also in the same universe, and has even littler mini!Becker.

Eeeek, not even Becker's childhood is safe from you! ;)

Great angst, and I can see it happening

It's a good thing that *we* all want to hug him, because apparently no one in his family will do it!
