Rating: R
Word Count: 300

Summary: There's nothing like almost dying to make a man feel alive
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

There was nothing like almost dying to make a man feel alive and few better ways to celebrate dodging the bullet of mortality than 'we almost died sex': fast, frantic fucking that gave the adrenaline something to do other than ricochet around in too tense too taut bodies.

There was a reason why women weren't allowed in the 75th Ranger Regiment and it wasn't due to any failing on their part. It was more to protect them from the bad decisions that tended to result from post-mission biochemical overdrive.

Special Ops being a boys' club it was left to the boys to take care of each other.

Ian had been on joint missions with Delta Force before and knew several former Rangers who'd joined the ranks of what many just called The Unit.

So while Bob tried to corner him for sniper tips in his overly eager puppy eyed newbie style, it was Mack – an old friend who understood and shared his demons – that Ian trusted to help keep them at bay once the last bullet had found its resting place of a nameless faceless enemy combatant.

Mack, all freckles and long lashes.

Mack, with coarse red hair that scritched under Ian's fingernails.

Mack, who had a mouth that knew its way around six languages and Ian's cock in a way that shouldn't be possible.

Mack was a man of many talents and his oral skills were most definitely exceptional.

Then again, Ian was one of the world's top snipers.

With lethal hands and the most envious level of control in all the armed forces, he knew how to use the master's touch to achieve his mission.

There was nothing like almost dying and to Ian feeling Mack's skin alive and vibrant beneath his fingertips brought him back to life.

Hope all my LJ friends had a lovely summer.

Re: Confession

Okay that? should be made into a video. With the appropriate actors, of course. Brava!

I missed you. You have expanded the fandoms and pairings I read.

A video would be perfect.
