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.

"Oh no," Holmes said innocently. "Not at all. Because, as you know, Watson hasn't an indecent thought in his head."

This made Watson choke on his coffee, so it was really only natural that Holmes reached out to pat him on the back. Oddly enough, however, his hand remained there long after Watson's coughing had subsided.

Gabe had abandoned his coffee to watch the Holmes and Watson show, but Watson's spluttering had reminded him of his own cup, which was woefully empty. He turned away from the two Victorians to refill it, predicting nothing more than an awkward brushing off of Holmes' hand or a stilted exchange of pleasantries.

A very large and very sick part of him wanted very seriously to make popcorn.

Gabe's expected awkwardness did not come. Instead, Watson made a strangled noise that might have been an apology, but Holmes only shook his head and tightened his grip on his friend's waist. Turning his head to establish eye contact, the detective looked wrly at Watson. "I won't bite you," he assured him sensibly. Watson nodded and shrugged.

Holmes looked at Jeannot, face unreadable, then at Watson, a considering look in his eye. "I shall keep it in mind," he said. If his tone had not been so bitingly sarcastic, it might almost have been flirtatious. But Holmes, Watson was presently fervently reminding himself, did not flirt. Despite the growth in insistence of the hand pressing into the small of his back.

"You should," Gabe replied. "Jean knows what he's talking about." He smiled at Jeannot, leaning down to kiss his cheek and then whisper in his ear. "We could hear some of what Watson said, you know," he murmured, nipping at Jeannot's earlobe before pulling away, grinning.

Watson choked again, an expression of very real distress on his face. Holmes looked amused for a moment, then remembered that he oughtn't, and caught his friend's eye. Watson was entirely mortified, but Holmes only shook his head ruefully and moved slightly closer to the other man. "I wouldn't worry, if I were you," he murmured, knowing full well that Gabe and Jeannot could hear him, then paused, considering. "Well, actually I would, but you shouldn't." Watson laughed unexpectedly, and Holmes joined in.

Watson looked at Jeannot with equal measures terror, anticipation, and pride. "I had rather," he said, dignity winning out once more, "speak with Mr. Holmes privately for a moment."

Holmes's eyebrows were well above his hairline by now. "I approve vigorously of this course of action," he said, his throat going slightly dry.

"Missed you," said Holmes's voice absently from the kitchen.

"And I you," Watson replied quietly.

They were very close together now, Holmes bending his head to be level with the doctor.

"The medical business is just so very," said Watson, and Holmes kissed him once, gently, on the mouth.

"Bad?" asked the detective.

"Very bad," Watson agreed, took Holmes by the collar, and kissed him back.

Gabe allowed himself to be led out of the kitchen by Jeannot, looking over his shoulder to give Holmes a warning look. He stood just outside the closed door, listening very carefully, and smiled. "'Not an indecent thought,' my ass," he commented, quietly and approvingly.

"I was," Gabe agreed, kissing Jeannot briefly on the lips. "It's a shame we didn't have any money on it."

Gabe was quiet for a moment, considering his options. He kissed Jeannot chastely, still thinking. "A secret," he concluded. "Preferably one of yours."

"Mm," Gabe confirmed, leaning down to kiss Jeannot's forehead. "Or at least something you've never told anyone."

Gabe smiled. "I suspect Holmes knows we're eavesdropping, anyhow," he said, and, hand in hand with Jeannot, began to walk down the hall, not exactly sure where to. "And I'd love to hear your story, secret or not, bel."

Gabe followed Jeannot into the last room and lay down on the couch, placing his head in Jeannot's lap. "Just you being here makes this place more beautiful," he said, smiling up at his love. "But yes, there's wall-paint in the closet." He laughed. "There's everything in that closet. I'm not exactly sure how it's possible, but that goes for most of what's been going on lately."
