Trying to look innocent hanging out on a balcony before he snuck in to raid the safe, the last thing Neal expected was a man to drop in his lap.

A handsome man.

A man who was surprised to see anyone else there.

"Who's out there?" a voice called from indoors.

The red-haired man just pressed him into the wall and whispered tersely in his ear, "Play along or they'll kill us both."

His kiss was ferocious, voracious and Neal had no trouble surrendering to the strong hands that roamed his body, but he pretended not to notice right away when the French doors were opened and two men came out, looking grim.

The look evaporated when they caught the two of them making out.

"Pardon me," one of them said. "But you'll have to come back inside. Party guests are not allowed outside of the ballroom."

"Sorry," the man said, grabbing Neal by the hand after one final kiss. "We were just looking for a little privacy."

Once they got back inside, Neal pulled him close enough to whisper in his ear.

"There's a roped off bathroom that's nice and private." He pulled back enough to show the sly grin on his face before whispering again. "And it's got an unbarred window with an easy drop to the flowerbed below."

A freckled finger tugged him nearer by the belt, bringing their bodies into contact again.

"Why do I get the feeling you're up to more mischief than I am?"

"What I'm up to and what you're up to might not be the same..." Neal slid his hands up the man's chest. "But the rest of your unit..." Neal let his trained eyes alight on each operative in the room, "...can wait while we enjoy our alibi a bit longer."

Title inspired by Harry Potter, natch. Pairing inspired by my slashwife's love of Max Martini and this week's WC100 prompt. ;-)

Yes, it's a special forces unit in the Army. If you don't know Mack, he's the same actor who played the U.S. Marshall with Neal's key: Deckard.

Thanks for reading!

We're still squeeing over the rolling chair incident with Ryan/Esposito. /adores/ It amuses me so much when TV producers feed the slashers. ;-)

*giggles madly* Neal's such an opportunist. XD
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 4th, 2010 01:19 am (UTC)
Hee! And such an opportunity!

You know I really need to write some Mack/Eliot or Billy/Eliot. /eyes your icon/

*votes for Billy/Eliot* You could save it as a birthday present if you like. *whistles innocently*
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 4th, 2010 02:50 am (UTC)
The operative word being save. LOL I suck so badly at getting birthday fic done in time you'd be lucky to get it by next year's birthday!

I do like the idea of the two of them. Yum. Enough said. ;-)
Dani: Eliot save me from myselfumbralillium on October 4th, 2010 03:34 am (UTC)
*grin* Any fic from you is worth the wait. *blows kiss*

Hair and freckles, anyone? ;)

From you to the muse's ears... /hopes/

*feeds your muse chocolate-covered espresso beans* Think of all the hair pulling and connect-the-freckles they could do!

Oh, my... Hair... Yum...

\o/ Can I secretly say I was kind of hoping you'd do a Unit xover. Even though I'm not big on the show I know you watch and I just felt like something was there to be done. :-)
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 4th, 2010 03:04 am (UTC)
Mel would have had my head had I not done a Unit crossover. I couldn't help myself! ;-)

I figured that a) you knew Max as Billy Cooper at least and b) everyone else would know him as Deckard (which I forgot to put in my Confession) so at least there would be happy visuals. /grins/

Ok I don't actually watch either of these shows, so I can't really say anything about it, but I thought the cut text said Mischief Managed for a second and I was all 'Yay! Harry Potter reference!' but...then it wasn't...

Oh boy that was hot and I wish it would have gone longer. :)

Max Martini and Matt Bomer totally works for me. :D
