Numb3rs Fic: Do I Dare to Eat a Peach?  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #394 - Peach

Title: Do I Dare to Eat a Peach?
Pairing/Characters: Larry/Megan
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 300
Spoilers: Seasons 1-3
Summary: Let us go then, you and I...
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Larry, the physicist, has no element.

He belongs in no space, no time and to no one.

In the room the women come and go
Talking of Michelangelo

He believes that when one is ready to become two, Megan will enter his orbit.

He is prepared to experience quantum entanglement.

There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet

Larry is a thinker, not a doer, neither lover nor fighter by nature.

He is, however, afraid that perhaps he is wrong to wait for Megan to come to him.

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?

He has been to the very heavens, cavorted with the stars, yet come home silent.

He feels like the man who achieved escape velocity from the planet isn't the one who returned.

"I am Lazarus, come from the dead,
Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all"

Those around him don't understand; how can they? He has dwelt in the realm of God.

Megan doesn't need him to explain anything. She just is for him as he is with her.

Politic, cautious, and meticulous
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse

Larry is unique in the world, but this does not mean he must remain alone in it.

As odd as he is, he does not relish the idea of being too unique.

I grow old...
I grow old...

He decides. He acts.

Megan says yes.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.

As his hair greys he will have Megan to walk beside him.

And if he dares to eat a peach, it will for certain, be a white one.

My favorite pairing with one of my favorite poems. So perfect.

So lovely! *smishes them both* I love how Larry at first decided to let Megan make the move, but then decided to make the move himself. :) They're so adorable together. That's why I love them.
