"The Pretender" and its characters don't belong to me (unfortunately!), they belong to their creators and owners and are being used without permission, but for no profit, just for fun.
Don't sue – you know, I have no money at all!
I came up with this idea while I was re-watching episode 4.09 "'Til Death Do Us Part".
The first time I saw that 'twisted little model of Parker's first meeting with Thomas' and Jarod hidden in the warehouse, dressed up like a clown, I felt like I could cry for days.
I don't know why he would have wanted to hide this secret from Miss Parker.
I guess he was worried about her reaction, and maybe also a bit ashamed. But you know what? I've always thought Tommy was a great guy, and so I started picturing conversation that Jarod and Thomas might have been sharing before the pretender's decision to introduce the man to Miss Parker.
Were they close? Were they friends? Did they often talk about Parker?
You're going to find out by reading this. I hope you like it.
Oh, and last but not least, English is not my native language, so please: be kind.
My total gratitude goes to Danielle SmileyFace, my Beta for this fiction. She's one of the sweetest persons I've ever known on the web and she's always very helpful and patient with me. Thanks a lot!
