Out With the Old




It's Rebelcat's week. ;-)

This one is labelled gen, but I think it's just the beginning, and all bets are off.

Out With the Old by Rebelcat


“Watch me,” said Bodie, confidently. “I’ll ferry you there like you were my own grandmother.”

“If you start driving like your grandmother,” Doyle took a deep breath, “I'll know you’re too drunk to drive.”

“Said I’d drive like you were my grandmother. Not like I was my grandmother.” Bodie smirked. “The drunk trumps the bloke in pain. Ha.” He took Doyle firmly by the shoulders and steered him towards the passenger side of the car. It was a worrying sign of just how incapacitated Doyle was that he didn’t put up a fight.

Instead, as Bodie started the engine, Doyle said “Didn’t know you had a grandmother. Or a mother, for that matter.”

Bodie glanced over. Doyle had his head back against the seat cushion, and his face was shiny with sweat. He stamped down firmly on an impulse to lay his hand over Doyle’s forehead and instead said, “Where did you think baby Bodies come from? Of course I had a mother!”

residual/vestigial... vintage Rebel One of the first stories I've read, before I got sucked into slash. :-) (I don't know if I've got the tenses right here!?)

Rebelcat week, a good choice! I admire her in more than one way.
This story is great fun, with Bodie concerned, affectionate and all touchy-feely (and oh-so-cute when drunk), and Doyle in pain, trying to hang on to some semblance of normalcy with that dry humor of his.

She's really great at these humorous but very warmhearted pieces, makes my insides go all sirupy *g*

Where did you think baby Bodies come from?
There's more than one? Me likes the thought.

If I ever come upon another Bodie, baby or not, I'll let you know. ;-)
And again one of your mini-revs. Thanks!
