Author's Summary: After resigning from UNIT, Mike is still trying to put things behind him.
Characters/Pairings: Jo Grant, Mike Yates
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's short and sweet. The story tells you a lot about the relationship between Jo and Mike and what they both do after she marries Cliff. It's just right for both of them.

When the first letter arrives — fat, swathed in Sellotape and stamped via Oriximiná, via Pará, via Mauritania, via Spain — Mike is still angry. He props it on the mantelpiece, and glares at it for a few days until his curiosity overwhelms his wounded pride and he finally opens the yellow envelope. Jo's handwriting is round and happy, and between thoughts she doodles flowers in the margin. She's so full of enthusiasm for her new life that Mike manages to feel both bitter and ashamed of his petty feelings at the same time. He leaves the letter leaning against the mantel clock and tries to think of ways to be a better person.
