Numb3rs Fic: Bleary-eyed and Bushy-haired  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #488 - Wrestle

Title: Bleary-eyed and Bushy-haired
Pairing/Characters: Billy/Charlie, Don/Robin
Rating: G
Word Count: 200
Spoilers: Series
Summary: Sometimes Charlie wakes up with truly epic bedhead
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Billy normally made the morning coffee alone, but with Don visiting from the East Coast he found a compatriot in his early morning routine. Robin, newly pregnant and winding up her first semester teaching at Georgetown Law, was sleeping in after spending the previous night finishing up the grading of her students' final exams. Charlie was pretty much never up that early.

Over black coffee stories were compared, catching up done, a friendship renewed.

Finally Robin came down for a kiss from Don and a cup of her own from Billy before heading back upstairs to shower.

Eventually Charlie stumbled his way down the Craftsman's stairs, his epic bedhead making it look like he wrestled with his pillow overnight and lost.

Don barely covered a snort of amusement as Charlie waved on the way past them, heading to the coffee pot with a low groan of greeting that meant he'd likely stayed up later doing math than he told them he would.

With another incomprehensible grunt-like sound of complaint cum farewell, he headed back upstairs with his mug.

"That's my Charlie," Billy gestured with a flourish to where Charlie had exited the room just seconds before, "bleary-eyed and bushy-haired."

Title and fic inspired by the saying bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Sorry about the lazy spoilers!

Thank you,

Heee! I love that the early risers have time to relax and catch up well before the others straggle in. Actually that sounds familiar...

This is so cozy and domestic /happy sigh/ I'd ask for more, but that would probably require, you know, conflict. I can't bring myself to wish any disturbances on this lovely, peaceful scene.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH! I love the imagery here. The last line from Billy is so him, and so spot on. Love it.

As someone with Charlie's hair I can sympathize.
