Notes: Written for whitecollar100.  Prompt was "Silence".

Neal used to hate silence.  He always relished being the center of attention; the ability to twist words and allow lies to slip off his tongue to achieve his goal.  He used chaos and confusion as a shield.  Silence, he learned, was dangerous.

It was two years into his sentence before it all changed.  There was the silence that surrounded Peter and him in the conference room as they worked; the silence that he and Mozzie shared over a glass of vintage wine, or silence in the early morning as birds woke with the sun.

Silence, Neal learned, was beautiful.

I'm only familiar with White Collar through fan fic crossovers, but I loved this drabble! :) The theme of silence works so well, and the wording is beautiful. Great work! :)
Ooh, I like this :-). And it even gave me an idea for another drabble.
