Love at first sight

Disclaimer: Not mine. Kevin/Scotty would be kissing if they were.
Summary: based on 1.02  "An act of Will"
Written forlove_bingo 


I will post 4 short-stories that should be read in this order: "Love at first sight" (this story), Forbidden love, "Can't take my eyes of off you" and "Wedding in reverse". The other 3 parts will be posted shortly.


Kevin is about the last person to believe in love at first sight. At age 34, he no longer believes in that romantic nonsense, created for high-school girls, who are swooning over some guy on the cover of a novel and hoping that their future ‘love-of-my-life’ will come even remotely close to looking like that.

Kevin puts aside his file. In general, the case of Mangopean Insurance is the standard fraud case, one he can most likely do with his eyes closed. This gives him time to ponder on ‘questions of life’ like the one about the term ‘love at first sight’, as Gina, the receptionist had described the man she had met last weekend.

How often would it actually happen? Just by looking at the people around him, he can’t really think of anyone who really had that happen to them. What he knows about his parents, Nora and William grew in their relationship and it hadn’t been instant fire, though Nora had been impressed with William but “Being impressed” is not the same as “Love at first sight”. Right?

Or Sarah and Joe? Practical, no-nonsense Sarah and the more bohemian and free-spirited Joe, how unlikely could their love be? Though, if he’s honest, Kevin realizes that hidden in Joe is a man who can be very practical in his own way and Kevin knows, from personal experience, that Sarah doesn’t always do the most practical thing, especially not if there’s wine involved.

He tries to remember that far back, but he cannot remember Sarah really being taken by surprise or talking about how shocked she was or anything. Kevin would like ‘Love at first sight’ to be recognizable as such. The bolt of lightning that crashes into you when your recognize your soul-mate……. He smiles over his own romantic notions.

So, how about Kitty and Jonathan? Mhmm. Kevin makes a face. He prays that Jonathan is not Kitty’s ‘soul-mate’. The man is very handsome, but Kevin cannot imagine that Kitty is in love with Jonathan to begin with, let alone that it happened ‘at first sight’. Maybe after the first glance at his Republican background, his bank-account and his car.. No, that's nasty. Kitty has flaws, but she's not like that… but she's not the 'at first sight' kinda girl either.

He thinks about Tommy and Julia, Tommy had fallen rather quickly for the beautiful Julia and it’s not so strange. Even Kevin can see the beauty in Julia, though it doesn’t raise his temperature. But can you call that it love at first sight? It wasn’t like he hadn’t seen her before, maybe a spark of interest that got ignited…

His buzzer sounds. Kevin quickly adjust his shirt and tie and walks up to the door to let his next client in. The man is tall and his beautiful blue eyes takes Kevin’s breath away. There’s tingling feeling running along his spine and he sincerely hopes that he won’t get too aroused that the client will notice.

“I’m Kevin Walker.” He says and he’s surprised by how much in control his voice sounds, considering that his heart is beating faster and that he has to strongly resist the need to brush the hair away from the young man’s eyes.
“I’m Scotty Wandell.” The man replies and suddenly Kevin wonders if love at first sight isn't possible after all.

What a great memories from when the show was so amazing! When this season is finished I'm going to start again watching season 1 to season 4, that would help me to fell in love with B&S again and forget about this awful season.
I absolutely love these lines:
"He has to strongly resist the need to brush the hair away from the young man’s eyes"
suddenly Kevin wonders if love at first sight isn't possible after all.
Awwwwwww! x3!

i love how kevin goes through all his siblings and parents, definitely what is in store for him is way better. :p
19th-Apr-2011 07:49 am (UTC)
Much better, I agree. :D
19th-Apr-2011 03:04 am (UTC)
Awwww loved this! Makes me want to go and watch season one all over again! Mind you I had a stong desire to flatten Scotty's hair do at that point!
19th-Apr-2011 07:49 am (UTC)
I felt the same about the hair! :D
19th-Apr-2011 09:00 am (UTC)
Aww - that is all I'm going to say; on to read the next ones

Yay!! Back to Season 1!! *I just heard Gaeta in my head, who took over the bridge and said 'JUMP'* Nice...

who are swooning over some guy on the cover of a novel and hoping that their future ‘love-of-my-life’ will come even remotely close to looking like that.
Oh, C'mon, digging up old wounds... :D

Sarah doesn’t always do the most practical thing, especially not if there’s wine involved.
*snickers* Very likely...

There’s tingling feeling running along his spine
I can see why... :P

he has to strongly resist the need to brush the hair away from the young man’s eyes.
bwaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!! Yes, those hairs just look ridiculous! Same feeling as Kevin there. How come some of the most important incidents that happened in K/S life (like this first meet), Scotty just has bad hair?

Everything's just fate! It warms my heart hon. Love this. :)

**** Oh, C'mon, digging up old wounds... :D ****

There was a reason this one was close to my own heart :D Glad you like it. :D

On another topic. From which episode was that picture of Kevin, eating something like toast, in the pic? I've been looking for pics of Kevin/Scotty eating and I want to add that one, but without the text. I have a vague recollection of this, was it season 2 after Isaac left? If I know which episode it is, I can screencap it for myself. Thanks if you can help me. :)

No, those were from Get a Room, he's eating pizza on the bed. ^_^
I have the screencap and icon size base here (brightness adjusted for that one), you may grab it here.
22nd-Apr-2011 11:06 am (UTC)
Aha! It was pizza. I thought it was toast. Now I have to go look for the other episode I was talking about to see if he was actually eating something. I think it was 2.13. :)

Thanks for the pics. I got them now. :)

Awww sweet memories! I fell in love with Scotty too till he brought out the Toucan. But I managed to excuse him because it only appeared once.
21st-Apr-2011 07:14 pm (UTC)
I'm sure he only used to Toucan to make an impression on Kevin by seeming even taller.... :) I don't know. I grew to like THAT Scotty too. :D

And I miss you! Hope you update your own stories soon enough (I want to know what Gordon wants!)
