Pairing - Connor / Lester
Rating - PG
For Primeval 100 challenge 183: Reservations
Reservations - Connor
His hand on the doorknob, Connor paused. This was a bad idea; Lester was his boss for goodness’ sake. And maybe he’d simply misread the other man’s interest. What if he had? Sure, there had been that kiss, but they’d both had a few glasses of wine and he couldn’t just assume it meant anything more.
Maybe he should just go back to bed…
Connor stumbled when the door opened, his hand still on the doorknob.
How embarrassing, he thought, being caught lurking outside Lester’s bedroom door. He started to apologise but the other man smiled.
“Want to come in?”
Reservations – Lester
Lester sighed, getting out of bed. He should have said something in the kitchen, but he’d frozen, surprised. He couldn’t help wondering what on earth Connor would want with an old man like him. No, not old, but compared to Connor…
Now or never, he told himself; he was likely to make a fool of himself but he wanted this. Reaching the door he pulled it open, finding himself face to face with a startled Connor.
“I- Sorry,” Connor began. “About before…”
Maybe, just maybe… Lester smiled. “Want to come in?”
Connor did and, this time, Lester returned the kiss.
