Title:
Falling to Safety
Characters: James Hathaway, Robert Lewis
Genre: Pre-slash, drabble
Length: 100 words
Rating: All ages
Spoilers/Warnings: none
Summary:
James is falling, but he's never felt so safe.
A/N: Beta by wendymr.  From a prompt by baskervwatson: James Robbie pre-slash Accidental topple on ice.


“It’s like the sodding North Pole.”

James suppresses a joke about reindeer.  Better not distract Lewis while he’s driving.  There’s black ice everywhere.  When they arrive, he hurries to the other side of the car, ready to offer a hand.  Instead, he feels his feet slipping.  There’s no time to panic before strong arms wrap around his chest, and Lewis’s sturdy bulk presses against his back.

“Easy, lad.  I’ve got you.”

Yes, you do.  A shiver goes through him.

Not surprisingly, Lewis misunderstands.  “I’ve got you.  I won’t let you fall.”

Too late, Robbie.  I fell a long time ago.


--THE END --

oh this is nice, I love the comfort of "Lewis' sturdy bulk presses against his back".

Thanks! I hoped to convey the physicality of the situation. Glad I succeeded.

LOL. For a small, additional fee, DC Hooper will give you a foot massage. *winks*

I'm glad you like it.

Haha trust me, he looked much more swag as Det. Sgt. Robinson in the 90s xD
