At First Sight

”So, when did you realise? You say you’re not sure you believe in love at first sight, so was it more of a gradual revelation to you?”

“There was definitely some lust at first sight. You’re kind of cute when you’re confused, you know that?”

“Cute?”

“Cute. Hey, give me more of the blanket, it’s freezing tonight. I guess it was gradual – with the random flashes of lust, obviously – though there was definitely a moment early on, the day in the crypt, you remember?”

“Yes, I do.”

“It was like a sign that we were gonna, well...you know.”

“That was quite an eventful day. You revealed your true identity to me – although I knew it anyway.”

“Of course you did, 'Mr Prudent'.”

“I told you I’d be proud to call you my partner and my friend.”

“Your attractive partner and friend.”

“Ah yes – that question. As I said, it was an eventful day.”

“It sure was. C’mon, you’ve still got all the blanket. The sign wasn’t any of those things though.”

“Was it the dream catcher?”

“I had very good dreams that night – I dreamt about you.”

“Did you?”

“Yeah, and as soon as you quit worrying about whatever the sign was, I’ll show you what I was doing to you in my dream.”

“Mmmm, that sounds good.”

“It’s gonna feel good, too.”

“Although, strictly speaking, the traditional purpose of a dream catcher is really to catch and keep away bad dreams, rather than induce fantasies of an erotic nature.”

“You believe that if you want to. Me, I think sleeping next to you is what keeps my bad dreams away these nights.”

“Thank you, Ray.”

“You’re welcome, Frase – now stop hogging the blanket! But it wasn’t the dream catcher.”

“Oh. Was it the party?”

“Right, Fraser. Because trout is the way to my heart.”

“Ah. Understood. So was it....”

“This is really bugging you, isn’t it?”

“I’m sorry. If I’m bothering you, I can always go and sleep in the...”

“Okay, okay. But it’s...well, it’s kind of sappy, so you have to promise not to laugh or anything like that.”

“I promise.”

“Mountie’s honour?”

“Mountie’s honour.”

“May the Queen go bald if I...”

“Ray!”

“It was my glasses, alright? I gave you my glasses when we were in the crypt, and they were all smudgy from the dust and everything. But when you gave them back to me, you know, behind that gravestone, they were clean. I noticed as soon as I put them on, and I knew then how great we would be together – set ‘em up, knock ‘em down... “

“...the best duet ever.”

“Right. You cleaned my glasses for me and I really liked that you seemed to care about me enough to do something like that. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I still thought you were a freak but, I think, when I look back on it, that’s when I started to fall in love with you. See? I told you it was kind of sappy.”

“Not at all...”

“Well. Good. Okay then. Now can we....”

“...but I didn’t clean your glasses. Admittedly they were in my pocket along with my handkerchief, which may have inadvertently wiped over the lenses whilst I was moving, and...Ray...Ray?”

“You ever heard of the expression ‘too honest for your own good’, Fraser?”

“Ah. Yes. Are you still cold? Perhaps you would like more of the blanket and... maybe I could help to warm you up.....”

Thank you. Even Ray's lack of respect for the Queen doesn't put Fraser off...fortunately.

Awww! Cute! (And "too honest for his own good" is like the definition of Fraser. *g*)

“Right, Fraser. Because trout is the way to my heart.”

Pefect, perfect voices. Snarky, but not too snarky for this cuddling moment. The glasses bit is also spot-on. No pun intended. :)

Sorry I didn't see this when you posted. Enjoying it now, though. \o/
