"I didn't expect you so early."

With only the dim light coming through the blinds to see by, Billy sat down on the edge of the bed, letting a bemused chuckle escape.

"How is it that me coming home at," he glanced at the clock as he tugged his boots and socks off, "11:45PM is early?"

He pulled off his t-shirt and almost immediately a slender arm encircled his waist. He could feel warm breath on the back of his neck, driving the last of the exhaustion from his body, replacing it with a tingle of anticipation.

"Anything before midnight is early for you."

"Early enough that you're not too sleepy?" Billy hinted, leaning into his lover's touch.

Long legs curled around him as soft lips grazed the back of his neck, making him shiver.

"I'm sure you could find a way to persuade me."

Billy let out a long breath, wanting to sink into the bliss waiting there, but knowing the unspoken tension should also be dealt with. "You know, one of these days we're going to have to tell Don about us. You know that. He shouldn't find out through the grapevine."

"His fault for introducing us."

When Billy didn't budge he got an answering sign in return as the lithe body behind him retreated, taking its heat away with it.

"Fine. We can call him this weekend." Satisfied, Billy finished stripping and slid into bed molding himself to Kim's waiting body just like he'd done dozens of times before. "But not tonight," she warned. "I don't want the memory of him to be the invisible third person sleeping in our bed, coming between us."

"Trust me," Billy rumbled, sliding between her legs as she curled them around him in invitation. "There is nothing coming between us tonight."

I confess I had more than 100 words written of this fic before I'd chosen a bed partner for Billy. ;-)

Runners up included: Don, Charlie, Ian, Officer Morris, Auggie from Covert Affairs, Spencer from Criminal Minds and Morgan from Criminal Minds.

For whatever reason, Kim decided her tryst with Billy in the After Sundown Series wasn't enough. In fact, it wasn't until I wrote that last sentence that I realized this totally is a sequel to that series and belongs in that universe. /headdesk/ Excuse me while I marvel at my muse not telling me things until WAY after the fact... (And as I change the headers from Billy/Withheld to Billy/Kim after all, putting in that universe pretty much ruins the surprise the fic was supposed to give. /sigh/)

Note to self: Stop waiting until after 9PM on Monday to START writing the N100 drabble prompt of the week. /hides/ /is a bad mod/

Re: Confession
I literally just gasped out loud. Spencer and Billy!! That may well be even more perfect than Charlie/Billy!! You can't dangle that possibility in front of me and then not provide me with fic!! Look - you have made me go exclamation mark crazy!!

Lovely drabble by the way, despite the distinct lack of Spencer:)
