Comments: This is kind of a combination of lauand and indelicateink’s prompts for Indelicateink’s weekend flash challenge. Thanks to Rosaleendhu for the beta. This is my 500th completed fanfic!
As ever, Crawford appreciated how his partner’s telepathy let them discuss their options silently. ~ Schuldig, how many are we dealing with and where? ~
~ Two down the hall behind us, two at the elevators on this floor, one at the stairwell also on this floor, two in the lobby. ~ Their client didn’t look happy to have Schuldig’s guiding and quelling hand on his arm but should just deal with it since it beat being murdered. ~ I know the floor plan well, so I could come up behind the attackers and take them out. That way, we don’t need to do the hard-driving two-gunman plan you’re thinking of. ~
~ Considering how free range and disobedient our client can be, I really prefer to have the both of us on him and looking out for him. That’s the plan we’re going with.~ He couldn’t let Schuldig start thinking that he could be easily overruled now.
~ If I’d known that sleeping with you would make you less likely to listen to me, I never would’ve done it. ~
~ This isn’t about that! ~ Crawford hadn’t even fully articulated that thought.
~ Isn’t it? If you thought the two of us fucking each other would make me less opinionated, you fail at foresight and should hand in your seer’s license. ~ At least he seemed more annoyed than deeply enraged.
~ I can’t let you think that giving me sex is going to make me ignore my best judgment on missions. ~
~ Noted. But you can’t listen to my views less because of it, because I will not put up with it. I no longer have to work with you if I’m feeling disrespected. ~
Shit. ~ Noted. I’m not going to follow your lead in all things, but I promise that I’ll consider any points you make. ~
Their client whispered, very annoyed, “If you two are done staring intensely at each other, can we get moving?”
~ Or we could kill our client ourselves, then go out to dinner, ~ Schuldig said.
~ That’s a tempting plan. ~
