I'm writing, but not what I expected to write

So for those who don't know, this year has been really hard on me writing wise and I'm not sure it's going to get better. I've been trying to write NCIS stories and have a pile of unfinished NCIS stories sitting in my gdocs that I continue to struggle with. Instead of writing those, Muse has been insisting on writing original stories for a competition on a writing discord. The rules of the competition are that the stories must be between 250 and 750 words. Perfect for me, right? Muse seems to think so.

I'm still hoping to get more NCIS stories posted to AO3, but in the mean time if anyone wants to read the originals I'm writing, I'll be posting them here since I can't really post originals on AO3. They'll be posted after the competition ends and secrecy is no longer needed. The competition happens every two weeks, though I may not enter every competition.

Below the cut is the story I entered for the prompt entanglement. I hope you enjoy them and feel free to leave a comment if you do or want to offer constructive criticism. I am still working on improving my writing and hope to be able to apply it to NCIS again soon.
