About: Kevin, Scotty.
Disclaimer: The boys aren’t mine
Summary: Kevin is grumpy, taking place after 507 and it’s still not going smoothly between the boys.
Final snack of the day and then it's bedtime for me. Again, should have been more, but it never got there.
Kevin is surprised, when he sees Scotty enter his office.
“Thought you were working tonight.” Kevin looks tired and his voice is a bit harsh, as if seeing Scotty is not a nice surprise. Scotty takes a deep breath. Of course it’s like this. Up and down. One day at a time. This is obviously not a good moment.
“Saul took over and Angie has to learn to take care of the kitchen by herself. Besides it’s not like I live on the other side of town and it will take me hours to get to the kitchen. So, I’m all yours.” Scotty replies with a smile, spreading his arms. Though it suggests a certain openness, he’s, at the same time, worried for Kevin’s rejection.
He walks up to Kevin. His hands play with curls that seem to return now Kevin’s hair is longer again.
“I’ve missed these.” He sighs. Kevin pulls his head away in an almost irritated way, which makes Scotty ask: “What’s wrong?”
Kevin sighs and softens a bit.
“Nothing. Bad case. It put me a bad mood. I’m sorry, it’s not your fault, I know. I guess, I hadn’t expected to see you. Thought I had time to be grumpy.” Kevin makes an effort to smile at Scotty now as well, as he takes Scotty’s hands and pulls him closer for a kiss.
“What’s the case about?” Scotty manages to ask between two kisses.
“Forget it. It can wait... Why don’t we go upstairs?” Kevin suggests, getting up. Scotty wraps his arms around Kevin. He wants to feel his husband close again and shake away the memories of the lonely nights after he had confessed his cheating.
“I thought you’d never suggest.” He places a small kiss on Kevin’s nose. “Are you sure you’re done? I don’t want to take you away from your work.”
“I’m fine.” Kevin replies, quickly closing the file. He locks the door behind him and then follows Scotty upstairs.
