Prompt: lovers
Rating: I suck at ratings. G? PG?



Tharsis City's manufactured October chill creeps into their jackets once they leave the diner. He lights her cigarette before his, eyes drawn to her dipping neckline and lips as she leans to meet the flame. They thrive on casual reasons to be that much closer; on the walk to her apartment, the brush of their hands is electric.

Near the building, she invites him up for coffee. Pulses quicken like "coffee" is a code word. It isn't, but maybe it should be. He can't say no.

Not until they go inside and see Vicious at the top of the stairs.

Possibly you don't realize exactly how much of a sucker I am for this. It's beyond gorgeous, and it says so much, and I just love the two of them and I love the way you write them. This reminds me of every little thing I love best about Bebop.

Possibly I don't, but I'm so happy you are! Naturally, these are all high compliments coming from the biggest Bebop geek I know. ♥
