At 7:48AM Tuesday morning, forty miles outside of Phoenix, Billy Cooper decided he was in too good a mood to strangle his new partner.

"We really need to get on the road," Don whined for the third time.

"A man's got to eat." Billy tossed back as he opened the door to the diner next to their motel and went inside. He'd had his first decent night's sleep in a week and wasn't about to let Don's foul mood affect him.

"Fine. Let's order to go and eat in the car." Don tapped his foot so vehemently the people in the back booth likely could hear it. "Kulack's got hours on us and we need to make up some time if we're going to catch him."

Billy let out a long sigh as he headed to the cash register instead of waiting to be shown into a booth. As much as he'd enjoy a leisurely breakfast, time was tight.

"Two large coffees to go..." He skimmed the menu. "And two breakfast burritos."

"Coming right up, sugar." The graying waitress flashed him a genuine smile before tearing off her order sheet and passing it back to the short order cook. "That comes to $12.18."

As Billy fished out his wallet Don tapped his arm. "I'll bring the car around."

Billy just shook his head as Don left.

The waitress took his money from him, clucking her tongue as she poured out two coffees and put lids on them, placing them in a bag and adding two iced danishes.

"On the house," she told him before lowering her voice. "You tell that boyfriend of yours to stop being so grouchy."

Billy dropped a five dollar bill in the tip jar with a wink.

"I'll be sure to tell him you said that."

Hee! I'm exhausted, but I had to read this when I saw you'd posted something. Well worth staying up that extra bit for that ending. Bravo!

Hey, Jes!

I was really hoping to gift someone with a nice grin with this fic. I'm glad you felt it was worth it. :-)

Hope to see you back in slashchat soon!

Well, I could make it Naked!Billy in bed with Don later reminding him of the waitress *one* last time. Hehehe
