“’Morning,” David greeted Colby as the junior agent sleepily emerged from the bedroom.

“Not yet,” Colby muttered and let out a long yawn. His eyes landed on the plate of food in front of David. “What are you eating?”

“Last night’s red beans and rice.”

“For breakfast?”

“Man cannot survive on Starbucks alone. And I made it with lots of Tabasco; come gimme a kiss.” David put a forkful into his mouth, puckered his lips, and leaned towards Colby.

“Eww, get away. Tabasco and morning breath? Not sexy.”

David finished chewing and swallowed. “Yeah, just you wait. 3:00 will roll around, we’ll be chasing somebody down, and you’ll be wishing you had that kiss.”

“Fine,” Colby conceded and pressed his lips together, leaning into David.

David pulled back. “Nuh-uh. Offer rescinded. I am a fine ass brother; you should never hesitate for some of this.”

“So now you’re going to punish me?” Colby reached in and grabbed a slice of sausage off David’s plate.

“You’re damn right. And quit,” David slapped Colby’s hand, “stealing my food.”

Colby grinned and held in a laugh as he popped the sausage into his mouth. A few seconds later, his face went red. “Fuck, I hate Tabasco.” He stepped quickly to the sink, grabbed a glass from the cabinets, and filled himself a tall glass of water, chugging it down.

“That’s what you get.” David sounded satisfied. “That is what you get.”

“How much of that shit did you put on there?” Colby coughed out.

“A generous amount.”

“No kidding.” Colby coughed again. “I think I’m dying.”

“And wouldn’t that be some fucked up karma.”

“For not kissing you?”

“No, for you falling asleep last night.”

Colby got a far-off look on his face as he jogged his memory. “Oh, yeah. Shit. Sorry about that. But it was only for a second.”

“Man, when I am going down on you, you do not fall asleep. Do I not satisfy you? ‘Cause I know I got my style on lock.”

“No, no, it was that it felt really good. I slipped off to heaven.”

“Well, the next time your ass slips off to heaven, you better stay there, or I’ll send you there permanently myself.”

Colby laughed. “Come on, it could have been a lot worse.”

“How’s that?”

“Think of every bad thing that could happen when you’re giving someone head.”

David paused to consider the list. “You do have a point.”

“I’ll make it up to you tonight.”

“Damn right, you will. I want a nice dinner, dessert, a movie… champagne…” Colby’s smile spread as David continued on. “Some flowers, a bubble bath… a massage… some Barry White grooving on the stereo… chocolate… feathers… those furry handcuffs…”

“Okay, okay, I got it. I owe you.” Colby put up his hands in defeat. David stared at Colby for a long time. “What? What is it?”

“I like you, Granger.”

Colby blushed, knowing what David was trying to say. “Well, I like you, too, Sinclair.”

“I think I might have to keep you around. You know, for when I need help lifting heavy things.”

“I’m definitely good for that.”

They sat together in silence in the kitchen for several long moments then grabbed their gear and headed separately for the office.

Just what I needed to put a smile on my face - thanks, sweetheart - this is fantastic.

I'm so happy it made you smile. Sometimes, fan fic is the best medicine. <3
dance_the_codedance_the_code on May 7th, 2007 04:20 pm (UTC)
Absolutely - which is why there needs to be more of it.

It is clearly going on lunchtime, because my reaction to this is equal parts "David! Colby! <3 <3 <3!" and "Mmmm, red beans and rice..." So clearly you win on all kinds of levels. :)
NV: [n3] colby // smugneur0vanity on May 7th, 2007 04:20 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, thanks! I was hungry when I wrote it!

Hope you have a good lunch. Eat something tasty!

Mmm, boo. You are a posting fiend, ain't ya?

I really liked this. As a chick from Louisiana, I wholeheartedly second the mmm red beans and rice/tabasco angle. Cause damn, that's good eatin'.
NV: [n3] don // smileneur0vanity on May 7th, 2007 05:15 pm (UTC)
I'm in a writing mood today, I tell ya!

Red beans and rice with tabasco is what I had for breakfast -- hence the idea for the story.

I like you in a writing mood. I am too, you know, because I have to study for an english test tonight. SO OF COURSE I WANT TO WRITE. :D

Mmm sounds delish.

CUTE! I love it.

Thank you! It was so much fun to write.

Hee! Thanks so much! It makes me so happy that you like it!

Yay, love this. :) Both of their voices are spot on.

One thing - the speaking attributions got confused for me near the end.
“Damn right, you will. I want a nice dinner, desert, a movie… champagne…” Colby’s smile spread. “Some flowers, a bubble bath… a massage… some Barry White grooving on the stereo… chocolate… feathers… those furry handcuffs…”

“Okay, okay, I got it. I owe you.” David stared at Colby for a long time. “What? What is it?”

I think the first paragraph is David talking though it's Colby that's smiling and the second paragraph Colby talking though it's David that's staring.
NV: [n3] david // facepalmneur0vanity on May 8th, 2007 12:29 am (UTC)
You're right; that is confusing! Thanks for the notice -- I'll make some changes.

Hee - to falling asleep during the blowjob. I like the nice domestic feel to this, and how comfortable they are around each other.
NV: [n3] david // don't fuck with meneur0vanity on May 8th, 2007 07:38 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I'm glad it feels domestic and that the commeraderie comes across well. :)

I do not know how I missed this! I loved it! They are so cute! David was killing me. And the 'like' at the end, such guys. *g*
NV: [n3] coop // smugneur0vanity on May 10th, 2007 12:33 am (UTC)
Hee! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! David is so much fun to play with, and I'm quickly warming up to Colby. Thank so much!

Just wanted to say that I really liked this. It's so few David/Colby fics that I treasure the ones that I have. My favorite part was when they both said they "liked" each other but they really knew what the other meant. Men.

NV: [$$] chappelle // you got itneur0vanity on May 12th, 2007 07:46 am (UTC)
Men indeed! They never can really say what they mean.

So glad you enjoyed this! Thank you very much.
Tallymusical_junkie on May 20th, 2007 11:53 pm (UTC)
I don't think it's possible for you to write something I LOVE. This was great. I'll be so pissed if this whole situation doesn't turn out the way it did in your fic. If he's actually a spy, I may die.
Tallymusical_junkie on May 20th, 2007 11:57 pm (UTC)
I accidently posted that comment before I finished.
And if they're not secretly dating and having conversations about morning breath in the opening scene of season 4, I'll die, I'll simply die.

Cheryl Heuton has assured everybody that Colby will be around for all of season four, so they'll work this out somehow.

Thank you so much. I'm really happy you liked this. <3

*gushes incoherantly*

They're so cute together!!!!!

Season four hasn't started in Australia yet, so I'm kinda hoping they'll get together sometime... all I know is that Colby's not a traitor...

I love this!!!
