Summary:
This isn't exactly what Robbie expected when James invited him out for lunch.
A/N: I hear some of my readers asking in bewilderment, "Aren't there are only eight nights of Hanukkah?"  Yes, but there are nine candles on the menorah.  The ninth is the shamash or 'helper' candle, which is used to light the others.  And this ninth drabble is for mspinto64, who very helpfully Brit-picked an earlier drabble for me.  Beta by the ever-wonderful wendymr.




They drive down country lanes until Robbie wonders if they’ve got lost.  When James invited him for Sunday lunch, he was expecting a favourite café.  Instead, they’re parked at the edge of a beech grove.  “What’s this, pet?”

“We’re having a picnic.”  James removes a hamper from the boot, then hands a thick blanket to Robbie.  “Spread that out, please.”

The meal is wonderful.  Robbie sighs contentedly, and drifts asleep in the summer warmth.  When he awakens, James smiles at him.  “Ready for dessert?”

“Yeah, I am.”  Robbie pulls James down beside him.  “And I know exactly what I fancy.”


-- THE END --

Naughty Robbie! He should be careful... James might have to arrest him for public indecency. Or does he like the idea of handcuffs? *g*

I think James will be too distracted to worry about such things.

Thanks for commenting!

How lovely. After having children picnics become sausages rolls and sandwiches, with a side helping of bees, wasps and spilt drinks, but I can see James' picnic being both elegant and romantic.

Thank you. I'm not quite sure of the menu, but I know that James had the picnic "catered" by a deli or cafe. Adult food, well made.

Thank you so much for writing this for me. It's perfect, really sweet and gentle; totally in character. You've really cheered me up after my weekend mishap.
