Part of the Just When You Thought... collection.
Authors Note: This is what happens when one person says just the right thing at just the right time. Thanks to Lisa, who made the comment that inspired this one. LOL . It is definitely a PWP piece, based solely on an overheard conversation between JD and Vin.
Disclaimer: I do not own them. They are the property of MGM, Mirisch, and Trilogy Entertainment; however, if they ever come up for sale, I will be in the front row at the auction.
Feedback: Feedback is welcome and greatly appreciated, but no flames please.
Vin carefully stacked the papers together and clipped them. He hadn't liked missing going out to lunch with the others, but the report had to be done on time. Besides, they said they would bring him something back. The abandonment was made a bit easier because JD had opted to stay behind too. His computer had been running slow, and he thought it was a good time to defrag it. The two had been talking as much as working, but the work was done, and that is all the mattered.
Buck carried the two bags filled with greasy burgers and fries that had been requested by the two who had been left behind. Chris fumbled to get the office key out of his pocket, a requirement since the orders had come down that anytime the office was closed it had to be locked. "This is a royal pain in the ass," he grumbled to Buck. "Like anyone is going to come in here to rip off the freaking ATF office."
"I hear you, Pard, but whatcha gonna do when the pow .." Buck stopped in mid-sentence and cocked his head like he had heard something.
"Buck, get outta the way, so I can open the door." Chris was annoyed and it showed.
The ladies' man held up a hand to motion for his old friend to stop. Then he placed one finger to his lips. "Shhhhh .I can hear somethin' in there."
"Well, of course you can. JD and Vin are there." He tried to shoulder the bigger man away from the door.
"No.. there is something not right goin' on in there." Buck pressed his ear closer to the door.
"You could make something not right, out of sunshine, now move."
Buck gave his boss a look that finally convinced him that he really was serious. The ATF team leader listened intently and then he heard it too.
"You ever done it in a three-way?" Vin's voice sounded a little strange to the men outside the door.
"Sure, I do that all the time," JD answered.
Buck's jaw dropped and his eyes bulged out in shock. "Nah.. not the kid." He swallowed hard and couldn't manage to look at Chris not after just hearing this confession from his younger friend.
"Why you wantin' to know that?" JD asked.
"Well, a friend asked me to join him in one last night, but I wasn't sure about it, so I said no," Vin confided.
"You should try it. It's great! I don't like it the other way now, too boring. Sometimes it does get wild ... I'm exhausted afterwards." JD rattled on.
"Heck, I have a hard enough time keepin' up with just two."
"Yeah, I know! But, then go throw a third person in there! Bam! It's a little confusing at first, but then you sort it out and find the rhythm. That's when it gets to be fun."
The excitement in JD's voice carried to the two men in the hall, who could only stare open-mouthed at each other.
"So, how do ya go about decidin' who goes first?" Vin wanted to know.
"I'll tell you, it ain't an easy decision. If you choose one, the other may feel hurt. Sometimes it's just best to take 'em both at once."
Buck gasped and leaned his forehead against the door. "All this time roomin' with him, and I had no idea." Chris just clamped one large hand down on his oldest friend's shoulder in understanding.
"Both at once? Damn man, you are a pro!" Vin was clearly impressed.
JD took on that embarrassed tone that they all knew so well. "I ain't no Buck Wilmington. He can take on several at one time, but yeah, I am pretty good."
"If I do decide I want to try it, what do I need to know? Vin asked.
"Well, one thing you should remember is to just take it slow at first."
"Okay Have you ever done it with a stranger?"
"Sure a few times. But, that is the beauty of it, you get to meet all sorts of interesting, and sometime strange people this way," JD replied with confidence.
Chris rubbed his hand over Buck's back, trying to calm him. He could tell finding this out was clearly upsetting him. "Buck, he's a grown man. You can't make his choices for him."
"I know, but this is JD. I just don't believe it." Buck sounded a little sick, even to his own ears.
"Just remember, play it safe... make sure you have the right kind of protection, and then just have fun," JD advised.
Vin sighed loudly. " I'm still not to sure about this."
"Well, if you want, I can show you how. We'll just need to find a third person," JD offered.
"Do you think one of the fella's would want to do it with us? I'd just feel more comfortable with someone I knew my first time round," Vin asked hopefully.
"We could ask Buck; he's probably back from lunch by now," JD suggested.
"Like hell he will," Buck hissed between his teeth. "I like foolin' around, but I still like to keep it one on one."
"Buck, settle down. No one is going to make you do anything you don't want to," Chris soothed.
"Damn straight they ain't," Buck stated firmly, before his attention was drawn back to the sound of Vin's voice.
"Right here? Right now?" Vin asked in surprise.
"Well, why not? Don't see any reason to put it off. It's not like I haven't done it at work before. You just gotta make sure you don't get caught." JD sounded totally laid-back.
It was Chris's turn to be stunned. "He's done it at work?" He looked at Buck as if he had all the answers. "When? Where?"
Buck couldn't resist and he clamped a hand on his boss's shoulder. "Now, Chris. Don't know why you're so upset, after all he is a grown man and can make his own decisions."
Larabee saw the sparkle in his eyes that always gave it away when the big man was teasing. He just shook his head and half smiled. Leave it to Buck to use his own words against him.
The sound of footsteps approaching the door gave the two eavesdroppers just enough time to act like they had just arrived, and that they hadn't really been standing there listening to their friends' private conversation. Buck had tried to bolt and run, but Chris grabbed him by the shirt and kept him there, earning him a good imitation of Larabee's own glare.
"You think he could be down in the break room?" Vin asked as they opened the office door. They were both startled to find the object of their discussion right outside the door.
"Hey, Buck! You busy?" JD asked with a grin.
"Uhhhh yeah.. I gotta go do that thing with Chris," he stammered.
"No you don't. Remember I got that thing done at lunch. He's all yours boys." Chris walked away grinning.
"Vin and I could use your help, Buck. Vin wants to learn to do a three-way chat. You've got AIM on your computer, don't you?"
T..t..t..t..that's all folks!!
