Fiction. A mini series of five drabbles

The first two were inspired by this week's prompt on tv_100 'Confession'. But once I'd written them, well I couldn't leave the boys as they were so . . .

Title: You're Kidding, Right?
Author: Darby Brennan
Format: Drabble
Circuit Archive: No thank you
Pros-Lib: No thank you
Slash/Gen: Pre-Slash
Summary: Doyle tells Bodie something.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I simply borrow them from time to time.



"I love you, Bodie."

Bodie began to laugh. "Nice one, mate," he said. "But April Fool's Day was a fortnight ago."

His laughter faded as he saw the colour began to drain from Ray's face, and the usual sparkle in the green eyes vanished.

He swallowed. "You're kidding, right? Aren't you, Ray?"

Then realisation dawned.

"You're not kidding, are you?" he said, his mouth suddenly dry.

Ray looked at him. All hints of animation had faded from him. "I might have known it was bleeding stupid to tell you."

He turned and strode away.

"Ray," Bodie called after him. "Ray."





Title: Courageous To The End

Summary: A sequel to You're Kidding, Right? Bodie is left to ponder what Doyle told him.

Bodie watched as Ray vanished from sight.

His mouth was dry.

His skin felt too tight.

His head pounded.

He couldn't believe what the golly had said.

He couldn't believe Ray's courage.

But that was Ray through and through.

Everyone thought Bodie was the 'where angels fear to tread', half of the partnership.

But Bodie had always known Ray had more courage than he had.

And he'd proved it again.

Courageous to the end, that was his Ray.

Did he have the same courage to tell Ray the truth?

"Love you too, sunshine."

He whispered the confession to silent walls.





Title: Do Me No Favours
Author: Darby Brennan
Format: Drabble
Circuit Archive: No thank you

Slash/Gen: Pre-Slash
Summary: A sequel to Courageous To The End. Bodie goes to see Doyle. But his partner isn't in the mood to listen.

He had to do something.

Something to salvage their friendship.

Their partnership.

He went to Ray's flat.

The look on Ray's face made him momentarily glad he'd brought his gun.

"What do you want?" Ray's tone was uncompromising.

"Can I come in?"

"Why?"

"There's something I want to say."

"What? That you've come here to do me a favour? Going to offer me a mercy fuck, are you, Bodie? Wouldn't be the first time, would it?" Contempt dripped from Ray's voice.

"Ray. I –"

"Piss off, Bodie. I don't want any favours from you."

With those words, Ray slammed the door.





Title: Get It Over With
Author: Darby Brennan
Format: Drabble
Circuit Archive: No thank you
Pros-Lib: No thank you
Slash/Gen: Pre-Slash
Summary: A sequel to Do Me No Favours. Ray knows he has to do something to keep their working partnership going.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I simply borrow them from time to time.



Ray not only slammed the door.

He locked it.

Then he double locked it.

Then, for good measure, he bolted it.

"Fuck it!"

He didn't know who he was angrier with: Bodie or himself.

"What the fuck did you expect him to do? Fall into your arms and confess his undying love? Yeah, right. Like he'd do that."

He'd screwed everything up.

Friendship.

Partnership.

The friendship was one thing.

The partnership another.

That had to be fixed. Cowley wouldn't separate them.

"Fuck it," he repeated.

Knowing Bodie was still outside, he unbolted and unlocked the door.

"You'd better come in."





Title: Not What's On Offer
Author: Darby Brennan
Format: Drabble
Circuit Archive: No thank you
Pros-Lib: No thank you
Slash/Gen: Slash (First Time)
Summary: A sequel to Get It Over With. Bodie and Doyle talk.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I simply borrow them from time to time.



Bodie closed and locked the door.

Then he turned and looked at Ray.

Looked him up and down; his gaze lingered over Ray's groin.

Ray felt his face and body flush.

His pulse rate increased.

His mouth felt dry.

His mind was telling him one thing.

His body another.

"We've got to sort this out."

"I know." Bodie took a step nearer.

Still flushed, Ray backed away. "Stop it."

"Stop what."

"Told you, I'm not after a mercy fuck."

"Wasn't offering one."

"What're you offering, then?"

"This." Bodie tugged Ray into his arms and kissed him. "Love you too, sunshine."
