Title: A Sense of Anticipation

Summary: Don doesn't know where Ian's taking him but he goes willingly
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

As Ian grips his arm he pushes him hard up against the SUV, almost knocking the wind out of an unresisting Don.

"Hand over your keys," Ian orders and Don obeys without question. "Get in the back seat and lie down." He does and Ian shuts the door behind him, climbing behind the steering wheel to drive. "And buckle up while you're at it."

Even though Don's lying down he's able to hook the center lap belt around him for safety.

He closes his eyes and lets his body rest for once, really rest, trusting in Ian to watch over him.

He opens his eyes briefly after a short drive, sensing the car's stopped, and finds they're at a gas station.

The SUV has almost a half tank - more than enough gas in the car to get home or to Ian's hotel, so they have to be heading somewhere further away.

'I have a place...' Ian had admitted to him recently and he didn't mean the hotels he stayed in while he was in LA.

He closes his eyes again, desperate for a hint of the elusive peace he craves, managing his breathing in anticipation of the journey's end.

ZOMG! I broke one of my own fic rules! /marvels/

The first drabble in this series was 100 words and I made the second one a non-standard 200 words?

Cue the apocalypse!

("Again?" - Everyone, BTVS)

I don't see an impending apocalypse...but then it has been a long while since we checked in with the scoobies. Soon? /puppy eyes/

I heart this series. You are evol in the best ways for slowing it down and making Don (& us) anticipate Ian's plans...

Well, it is a five prompt month! Can't give it all away in the first two! LOL

Proud of you for breaking your fic rules. *g*

I'm enjoying the anticipation along with Don.

Aww! Thank you! It's hard since I'm such a Libra over things like that, but I'm glad too.

This one really makes me feel Don's exhaustion. Good Work.

Yay! I was hoping for that! Thank you!
