Numb3rs Fic: After Sundown  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #271 – Mess

Title: After Sundown
Series/Universe: After Sundown
Pairing/Characters: Don/Billy, Don/Kim
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Counterfeit Reality, Man Hunt
Summary: Just after sundown in Albuquerque Don gets a knock on his door
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

He appears on Don's doorstep, unexpected as a hailstorm, wiping imaginary road grime from his freckled brow.


Don's breath catches. Words fail.

He's a mess: rumpled as if he slept in his clothes, redolent with the lingering stench of unmistakable cordite and marked by a tiny bloodstain near the hem of his t-shirt that any agent but Don might miss.

"Hey, partner. Got room for one more?"

Don's put down roots here and Billy is a tumbleweed of trouble in this quiet desert town.

But Don opens the door wider in tacit invitation and lets Billy into his home.

It's been a while since I made the N100 monthly drabble prompts into a series and Dirty month (with its Billy/Kim pairing) seemed perfect for me to end the drought.

This series will end up Don/Billy/Kim and probably porny at some point so fair warning.

Very special thanks to beta melissima for her assistance with this fic.
