It starts with an accidental brush: two bodies sliding past in an open doorway.

Billy's in the midst of ripping off his kevlar vest as he heads into the motel room and Don's in a hurry to get the last of their bags out of the SUV.

Hands overhead, Billy's chest skates against Don's, denim scritches against denim.

They both halt, more out of shock than anything, and their eyes meet.

The atmosphere is suddenly charged with energy, like closed case adrenaline, but different... Sexual...

They can't look at each other that night, afraid of what they might see there.

Inspiration, title and summary from the Lene Lovich song Lucky Number

There's something in the air besides the atmosphere

I never thought that I could feel the way I feel
There's something in your eyes gives me a wild idea

This is such a fantastic view - even if it is a tiny, tiny one that leaves my romantic little heart kind of wondering for the future - of this relationship, and probably one of the most realistic takes on it I have seen.

In short, awesome drabble.

This is gorgeous, a wonderful moment between them.
