And it felt like a kiss



Bodie finally loses his cool.



And it felt like a kiss by ailcia


Bodie looked at him, and pushed his way past. Once in the living room, he turned quickly and seemed to be continuing an argument Doyle should have known about, holding a hand out wide and incredulous.

“I mean… You don’t just wander off like that, Doyle. You just don’t!”

Doyle blinked. “I’m sorry - you give a shit?”

A pause followed by a scoff, and a downwards swipe of the hand which became clenched at Bodie’s hip.

“Don’t be daft,” he said coldly.

And that was that. Bodie gave him a bit of a bollocking about leaving him to deal with the Old Man all on his own, but that was that. The banter that evening held an edge to it, but it was the best they had and it was all they needed. Bodie darted out and had bought beer before Doyle noticed he was missing.

A can, thoroughly warmed, was thrust into his hand, and his shoulder was dealt a swift, smarting clap. Bodie threw himself back down in the armchair and turned his gaze to the news. Doyle could only look at him, and wonder.

I know I keep saying the same thing but I don't know how I missed this one as I love her writing and thought I'd read everything she'd written, so thank you for bringing this to my attention.

And I really love your top strip of Bodie and Doyle - it's brilliant. The black with the pale blue background is just perfect.

thought I'd read everything she'd written, so thank you for bringing this to my attention. I always love to discover new fics of authors I like, and this one has just been posted in the safehouse and never archived properly as far as I know. So enjoy!

And I'm glad you like my new header. I finally managed to install it. :-)

Ah, Alice... such a favourite writer of mine. I love how she gets these minute moments between them. Breathtaking really. Thank you, it was nice to have a reason to go read something of hers again.

Just for once, one I read when it was posted - I couldn't forget that song and the way she uses it.

Thanks for the reminder.
