Date: Spring 2012
Characters: Candice Wilmer, Dae-mun 'Jimmy' Lee
Summary: There's nothing like coming home after a long, hard day at the office.
Warnings: sexual situations
Status: In Progress

Down in the garage, the lights were still out and she had to rely on instinct and memory to keep from bumping into walls. God, she hated being down here, and if she could've helped it, if she thought she could leave her car on the street and not find it vandalized, she never would've stepped foot underground willingly. Prelude for the grave, she thought, stepping into the elevator and wondering how long she'd have to wait until he came home.

"I wish you could forget about him."

Hard to do when she used to plan her day around him. She still knew what he liked, she could still judge his mood from the barest flicker of his glance. He was an open book and still, even divorced they'd managed to fall into that one pattern she feared most: the housewife waiting for the husband to come home. Hopefully alive, hopefully in one piece.

Hopefully not planning her execution.

"Yes," she nodded. "Take a holiday. Get away." A snort of laughter. "Don't they know what you do for a living?"
29th-Oct-2007 07:46 pm (UTC)
"Yeah, actually they do." he smirked with a shake of his head. "Grounded me from my bike for a week and gave me a bag of vitamin injections. Still couldn't take a sick day."

"Sick days must be for when you get shot only, I think," she smiled back, leaning her hands on the counter behind her. A little too close to the truth, but no matter. "Here's hoping you don't have to go through that again."
29th-Oct-2007 07:56 pm (UTC)
"If it happens again, they'll probably admit me for a few days." he smiled reassuringly. "It's not going to happen again, I've got vitamins and lasagna and a cupcake schedule in the rear echelon, at least this week. As for the rest, is as they say, I can rest when I'm dead."

"Funny, I'm sure death is just another mountain of mission reports," she chuckled, watching him carefully. One of them was lying, but it wasn't him. She didn't think so, at least.

"I'm free tonight." If you are.
29th-Oct-2007 08:14 pm (UTC)
"Define free." he challenged, letting the other subject drop.
29th-Oct-2007 08:23 pm (UTC)
Candice tilted her head at him, considering. "Not required to be up for work in six hours. Not required to be writing up reports." Not required to be doing anything but if I have more time to myself, I think I'll go mad.
29th-Oct-2007 08:29 pm (UTC)
"Restless then." he grinned, pushing himself off of the counter. "Well, I have no other plans for tonight."
29th-Oct-2007 08:40 pm (UTC)
A tight-lipped smile. A long day.

"Good," she nodded, taking a step towards him, around him and escaping down the hallway to their rooms.

He sighed once she was out of view, his pulse skipping a beat faster at Candice's move, but that was what she intended. Jimmy followed into step behind her, idly pulling at a loose thread from his dress shirt.

"Heading to bed already?" While he left out whether or not he minded which bed she choose to go to, she probably knew.

29th-Oct-2007 08:58 pm (UTC)
Candice found it in her to smirk over her shoulder, leaning in the doorway to his bedroom. "Don't sound so disappointed."
29th-Oct-2007 09:04 pm (UTC)
"I don't know about you, but I was planning on going to bed, but you..." Jimmy stopped in front of her, his voice teasing. He clicked his tongue while his eyes appraised her from head to foot. "...you seem to have other plans in mind."
29th-Oct-2007 09:10 pm (UTC)
"My plans involve a bed too," she shrugged, not waiting for an invitation or permission to set foot in his room. More like a sign that he was okay with it. After all, Jamie was right: she did care what he thought about him. "Here's your chance to object."
29th-Oct-2007 09:28 pm (UTC)
Why did they keep doing this to themselves was a question he tired of asking himself. It didn't matter, he never wanted to face the answer. That didn't stop it from crossing his mind as he stepped into his room behind her, a grin already in place. "Now why would I ever object?"
29th-Oct-2007 09:37 pm (UTC)
"Because you're tired, apparently," she grinned, not waiting for confirmation once she knew she had him. Out of habit, she closed the curtains, as if modesty had any place in their world anymore.
