Tonight at Noon


Doyle's trying to get through Bodie's personal Iron Curtain.

Tonight at Noon by Draycevixen


“Good is it?”

Bodie didn't even look up. “Very.”

“Then read me something.”

This time, the dark head rose slightly from the book but still didn't turn toward him. “Aren't you supposed to be watching the building?”

“I can look through the binoculars and listen to you at the same time.”

“No.”

“Worried you won't be able to pronounce the big words correctly?”

Bodie finally turned to look at him, his face only partially illuminated by the small torch he was using to read his book. Doyle bit back the urge to cheer.

Wow, this is really well written! I am having trouble sleeping (still on UK time) so this was a lovely early morning interlude! Thanks for the link.

Indeed, I really liked this as well. Perfect ending line. Liked the poem, too. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

I thought the quote you'd chosen was beautifully written and intriguing enough for me to want more - to find out what's going on with them in this scene - so thank you for this excellent choice!
