"So, back at the bar..." Billy glanced over to where Don sat in the passenger seat, chewing gum like he was still playing baseball. Their fugitive case had taken them to a gay bar where a man just had to make a pass at him in front of his new partner.

"Yeah?" Don's gaze was clearly at rest, taking in the monotony of the equally spaced lights along the late night freeway.

"You didn't say anything." Another glance, this one in time to catch Don's lazy shrug.

"Nothing to say."

Billy kept looking over, trying to gauge Don's expression and failing.

"You knew about me from the first, didn't you?"

If he expected a joking retort, he didn't get one. Don just shrugged again.

"Pretty much. Doesn't matter. Not to me anyway." Don gestured to a motel sign up ahead. "That one's not bad. Want to crash there for the night?"

"Sure." Billy exited the freeway and pulled into the motel's driveway. He shut off the engine with a wink. "For what it's worth, I heard you were a ladies man before I even met you."

"And here I thought I was a man's man," Don joshed back, flashing his best smile.

They got out of the car and Billy paused for a second, still parsing the implications of what his new partner had told him. "Wait, did you mean..."

Before he could finish his sentence Don tossed his duffle bag at him from the back of the car, making him catch it abruptly.

"Look, they have a special deal," Don smacked his gum as he passed Billy, smirking. "One room, two queens."

As Billy roared with laughter, Don threw his own words back at him, his hands splayed out playfully.

"What? You didn't know about me from the first?"

Fic inspired by and title and quote taken from an Internet definition of the term First.

(See, this is why we put links in the N100 posts! You never know where inspiration will come from!)

"Two queens." Love the Supernatural call-back, whether intentional or not. And this is adorable and so full of delicious potential.
