Sequel Ficlet

So that Valentine's fic I posted yeterday here was totally meant to be a one shot. But in this morning in Calculus a little sequel came to me. The proof is all over my notebook next to limits and contour maps. So here it is. If anyone has a title suggestion, make it, please!

Title: Alone Together Sequel
Author: [livejournal.com profile] taricalmcacil 
Rating: FRC
Genre: Hurt/Comfort
Summary: Julian knows Miles lied about Keiko's visit.
Pairing: Miles/Julian friendship

His voice startles me, I was barely aware anyone was here, let alone him. Julian doesn't often venture into the station core. I used to think he just didn't like to climb down here, now I know it's because the amount of noise - tolerable to a normal human - gives him splitting headaches due to his enhanced hearing. I must be important if he's come here instead of calling on the comm.

"I checked the weather for the last 48 hours."

Ah. That. I pause in my work, waiting for him to continue. I'm not disappointed.

"There was no plasma storm."

I tense sure that an explosion is about to happen. But it never does. Instead, I feel his hand on my shoulder. I turn at his touch, smiling sheepishly, and shrug. There's a warmth in his eyes that's been absent for quite a while.

"Thank you, Miles."

"It was Keiko's idea, Julian. I just mentioned you could use a friend."

"You didn't have to, Miles. You should have been with her."

"I was. But you've been there for us too often to leave you moping."

He smiles his first that I've seen in ages. One of those small shy ones he uses when he's just a bit embarrassed, but is okay with it because he feels comfortable. Good, actually, if the way he slept on my couch a couple nights ago is any indication.

"Thank you, Miles. And tell Keiko I said the same."

"She knows, Julian." I say, pulling him into a brief hug. When he breaks away, I can just see the blush on his cheeks in the dim lighting. He's smiling again, and I suspect more gratitude is in the works.

"Don't say it, yeh rip." I scold as he opens his mouth.

He blushes even deeper and pauses, mouth still open.

"Darts tonight?" He offers after a moments thought. I offer him a grin to match the awkward smile he's now sporting.

"Wouldn't miss it, lad."

He nods and then turns on his heel, leaving the core behind.

No lad, wild horses couldn't drag me away.

This is adorable too. I think you've captured their easy dynamic pretty well.

:) It demanded to be written, I couldn't resist. I'm working on a few other stories right now, one one-shot, one multi-chapter involving Julian and Sisko being trapped in 2024, and the multi-chapter with [livejournal.com profile] jonnycarnahan. Hopefully I'll be posting the first bit of the 2024 one by the end of the week, so keep watch for it!

Sounds interesting. I'll watch out for it. Haven't read any DS9 fanfictions in ages. I really missed it. :) Think I have to watch an episode later. ^^
Oh yeah... and thanks for adding me. :)
