Numb3rs Fic: Cold Comfort  
Posted to numb3rs_slash

Title: Cold Comfort
Pairing/Characters: Billy/Colby
Rating: NC17
Spoilers: Man Hunt, Judgment Call, Season 6
Summary: Billy's lost Don to Robin so he finds someone who understands his loss
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

It's the same bar Don had his bachelor party in so Billy knows why he's there drowning his sorrows. It's Colby who looks out of place despite being a Fed in a cop bar.

He's got that wounded look that Billy catches in the mirror sometimes when his guard is down, the one that says he's broken inside.

Billy invites him to share his booth and Colby drinks to Don's happiness without hesitation; Billy has to force the words, and the smile that accompanies them, out from behind a clenched jaw.

It's when they drink to Charlie's happiness with Amita that Colby falters just enough for Billy to figure him out. The boy's got it bad, torch still flaming good and hard even though the object of his affection isn't just married, he's a continent and an ocean away.

Three shots later Billy risks a confession of sorts, admitting things haven't been the same since he and Don partnered up. He bemoans the loss of someone who 'just knew him'. Colby grows silent, staring into his beer.

It doesn't take long to fish out the fact that Colby's been damn near celibate since coming to LA. Spies don't date, he tells Billy, bitterness seeping through now that the alcohol's doing the talking for both of them.

It's not cheating when Colby lets Billy tear off his shirt and pin him to the mattress. No one's going to get hurt if Colby sucks Billy off, closing his eyes to imagine the hands fisting in his hair are chalk scented. And if the wrong name falls from Billy's lips as the scent of sex and cordite fills his nostrils, as his cock slides deep into Colby's too young too tight ass, it's for only them to know and no one to regret.

This was written for tayla36's 300 word fic prize at n3rs_commentfic which she won for submitting the greatest number of prompts! Congrats, Tayla!

She asked Colby/Billy comforting each other after Charlie marries Amita and Don marries Robin.

The fic was written ages ago, but somehow I neglected to post it on my LJ. Mea culpa!

Thanks for supporting n3rs_commentfic Tayla!

I've always loved proxy fic. Double proxy's just an excellent bonus.
