Domestic Bliss


Charlie vaguely wondered if this was domestic bliss. Rare rain was gently falling on the roof as he marked papers at the dinning room table. Don was next to him going through review papers, while Colby filled out reports, and Alan looked through some building projects an old friend asked him to double check. The room was quiet except for the content scratching of pens, the rustling of papers, the hum of the fridge, and the fall of rain.

Don gave a small cough. “Colby?”

“Yes?” The agent looked up from his work.

“Not that I’m not flattered but I think that foot on my thigh is meant for Charlie.”

Charlie looked up in time to see Colby turn bright red. Colby looked like he wanted to die as Don tried not to laugh. Alan Eppes kept his nose firmly in his papers, ignoring the boys’ antics. Colby buried his face in his hands.

“Be nice, Don.” Charlie said tersely.

“I didn’t do anything.”

“You were laughing.”

“Was not.”

“Margate Levinson.”

Colby peeked through his fingers to see Don turn a similar shade to his.

“Don’t you dare.”

“So Don’s in the 7th grade.”

“Charlie. Don’t!”

“And there’s this girl.”

“Junior Prom. Charlie. I swear to god. Junior Prom.”

“Boys,” Alan barked, still not looking up. “Behave. Do your homework.”

“Yes, dad”  were the Pavlovian mumbles.

Alan looked up and shot Colby a quick wink before burying his head back into paperwork.

I'm thinking it was something horribly embarrassing involving gym shorts.

:snicker: I love Alan's order and Don and Charlie's response *g*

(And is the girl really called Margate, or did you mean Margaret?)
ladygray99: Numb3rsladygray99 on November 26th, 2007 07:30 pm (UTC)
I think I'll stick with Margate. It sounds sillier.

BWT Where did you get the still for your icon?
andi: Don & Charlie promoadmiralandrea on November 26th, 2007 07:33 pm (UTC)
Sounds reasonable!

I didn't make the icon, it was done by someone else. But the picture came from numbers-online.net IIRC, it's part of a larger promo shot...

Great. Thanks. I'm collecting pictures for a cover page for some series I've got.

Doesn't matter how old you get, when dad says 'do your homework' there's only one response.

"Colby looked like he wanted to die as Don tried not to laugh."

Poor Colby at least he don't have the Pavlovian thing going....Unless Charlie is gonna teach him some tricks!
ladygray99: Davidladygray99 on November 26th, 2007 09:19 pm (UTC)
Oh Charlie has already taught him a trick or two *eg*

I knew Colby was going to nudge Don's leg instead of Charlie's. *GRIN* It's too good to pass up.

This was so cute and sooo funny. Now to clean up the mess I made while trying to drink while reading. Can't wait to see what the *change* will be.

From now on I'll try to put spit warnings before the funny bits.

bwahahah! Loved Charlie's "revenge", too.

It's been so long since I read this one. I thought it was funny at the time. I'm glad it's holding up.
