All your coffee are belong to Gabe!

Location: The Cravat
Time: N/A. (Though for all intents and purposes it is morning.)


This morning, as with many mornings, Gabe's first thought was one word. This one word was 'coffee.' He carefully extricated himself from his and Jeannot's bed, making sure not to wake his love as he did. He left the room quietly and went down the stairs, looking for any new room, hopefully one containing a coffee-maker and some grounds. As luck ((or possibly the BC's inherent MKCSR powers)) would have it, the first room he decided to explore was the kitchen, the coffee-maker on the counter like a gift from G-d. He only had to look through two cupboards before finding the coffee grounds and cups, and he set about making it, humming Chelsea Hotel #2 very loudly to himself. Once done, he sat upon the counter, impatiently watching it percolate.

"I should hope not," said Holmes, staring fixedly at the toast. He was just as alarmed as Jeannot, but making rather more of an effort not to show it. "I'll go upstairs and get him, then." He turned on his heel out the door, then popped his head back in to add wryly, "Once more unto the breach, dear friends."

Glad to be given something to do, Jeannot searched through the cupboards until he found the one with the dishes in it, and pulled out four coffee mugs. He carried them over to Gabe, setting the mugs carefully down next to the coffeemaker. That accomplished, Jeannot smiled and put an arm around Gabe's waist, pressing close to him. "Coffee," he remarked, shaking his head in wonder. "M. Holmes must be wealthy, if he can afford coffee, aimé."

"Coffee's not so expensive, really," Gabe replied. "At least not in my time. I mean, even I could afford it." He shrugged and kissed Jeannot's cheek before turning away to pour the coffee. "I don't, mind you," he added. "Free coffee is one of the perks of working at a coffee shop." He picked up the mug he has deemed as his (it had a fractal printed upon it) and took a sip. "It's good coffee," he said, offering the mug to Jeannot. "Strong."

From upstairs was the sound of someone throwing something - probably a shoe - at someone else. A door slammed, and Holmes trooped dejectedly back into the kitchen. "Our cause has been defeated, I fear."

Jeannot took the mug, enjoying the warmth in his hands, and sipped carefully. His eyes widened at the rich taste. "Oh," he breathed, rapturous. "This is much better than coffee in my time, aimé." Jeannot smiled and leaned up to kiss Gabe. "Another good thing about your time, I think," he murmured against Gabe's skin, absolutely content.

He glanced up at Holmes, a bit startled. "Oh, Dieu," he said softly. "Is Watson all right?" He hesitated and glanced at Gabe for a moment, glad that he and Gabe weren't fighting, as apparently Holmes and Watson were. "Do you think that he would talk to me, if he will not speak to you?" he asked Holmes, willing to go and see to his new friend.

"Watson," said Holmes bitterly, "is fine. My dignity, however, is another matter. And yes, he may well talk to you." He sighed and leaned against the counter, then reached for a mug.

Gabe took the mug back from Jeannot, giving him another kiss as he did, still tasting the lingering coffee flavor in his mouth, and just shook his head at Holmes. "You weren't even up there for five minutes," he said, almost impressed. "What the hell did you say?"

"I said good morning," Holmes reported, "and then he threw his left shoe at me." He poured himself some coffee, shaking his head. "He is excessively angry, although I don't know about precisely what." He had a fairly good idea, though, and that was only making him more miserable.

Jeannot shook his head, feeling guilty. "I will go and try to speak with him, then," he told the other two. He lingered for a moment, reluctant to leave Gabe's side, but did, in the end, manage to tear himself away from his love.

He climbed the stairs with a bit of trepidation, hoping that Watson wouldn't throw anything at him. Stopping in front of the closed door, he took a deep breath and knocked. "Watson?" he called softly. "It is Jeannot. May I come in?"

"What? Oh, yes, yes you may." Watson was sitting unhappily on the bed, one of his shoes on the floor beside him, the other lying just near the doorway.

Jeannot entered hesitantly, looking with sympathy at the doctor. He shut the door gently behind him and moved forward a bit, hands in his pockets. "Good morning, my friend," he said quietly, studying Watson. "I-- are you going to throw that shoe at me?" He smiled, to let the other man know that he was making a joke, but his eyes were serious.

Jan. 28th, 2007 09:55 pm (UTC)
"No, not at you," Watson laughed. "I'd offer you a seat, but there's only the cot." He smiled, putting on an immediate façade, mostly out of old Victorian habit. "Is there breakfast downstairs?"

Jeannot smiled back and moved closer, coming to stand at the foot of the cot. "There is," he answered cheerfully. "Gabe has made coffee, and he is toasting bread." Jeannot smiled encouragingly at his friend. "Won't you come down and have some with us?"

"Certainly," Watson said, still smiling with an inspired arificiality. "I am always quite hungry in the mornings." Unfortunately, he often also ended up weeping in the mornings, particularly where Holmes was concerned, and this was beginning to make itself uncomfortably evident. He wiped a tear away in a manner which he hoped was subtle. It wasn't.

Jeannot stood uncertainly for a moment, feeling terrible that Watson was weeping, before moving to sit next to him on the cot, placing a hesitant hand on his friend's shoulder. He fished in his shirt pocket, pulling out his small pocket kerchief, and offered it to Watson wordlessly.

"Are you--" Jeannot began after a moment, and stopped himself quickly. "No, of course you are not all right, or you would not be weeping," he murmured, and studied Watson's face, concerned. "You are upset over M. Holmes?" he guessed softly, again feeling the sting of guilt for having told the doctor about Holmes' liaison in the bar.

"No," said Watson, his voice strained with good British self control, "I am upset over me, because I have behaved, as usual, like a complete imbecile." He took Jeannot's hankerchief and wiped his eyes with as much dignity as possible. "When you want someone to forgive you something, it's probably best not to go throwing shoes at them."

Jeannot frowned, trying to make sense of this. "You want him to forgive you?" he asked, a bit puzzled, but keeping his voice calm and hopefully soothing. "Whatever for?"

"Wow," Gabe said, truly impressed, once Jeannot had left. "You really fucked up. Good show." It was unclear whether he was being sarcastic or not.

Jan. 28th, 2007 09:34 pm (UTC)
"That is correct," Holmes said, sipping his coffee. "I'm fairly certain I know what I've done, but if I'm wrong, I don't want to inform him." He groaned.

Jan. 28th, 2007 09:38 pm (UTC)
"He knows about your friend, back in the bar," Gabe replied. "If that's what you mean." There was an awkward silence until the toast popped again, interrupting it. It was burnt. Gabe swore.

Jan. 28th, 2007 09:47 pm (UTC)
"I thought that was what it was." Holmes buried his head in his hands. "Let this be a lesson to you, Rosenberg," he said thickly, "Never believe someone who says that they are not interested in romance."

Jan. 28th, 2007 09:52 pm (UTC)
Gabe laughed. "Do you really think you should be the one giving me the advice?" he asked, taking the toast out with his fingers and staring at it. "It's burnt," he stated. "Want it anyhow?"
simplysidhe
Jan. 28th, 2007 09:56 pm (UTC)
"It's not for me," Holmes replied, glancing up through his fingers. "I don't eat much. Watson, however, does. On the subject of advice, however -" He sat up, glaring at Gabe. "Have you any for me?"

Jan. 28th, 2007 10:01 pm (UTC)
"Don't fuck up again," Gabe said, simply, and took a sip of coffee. "Some men find continuing fuck-ups endearing. Watson doesn't seem the type."
simplysidhe
Jan. 28th, 2007 10:27 pm (UTC)
"No," Holmes agreed, "he's not, but that's hardly the subject at hand." He nursed his coffee for a moment before adding, broodingly, "I suppose I shall just have to apologize." The mere word sent shivers down his spine.
