30_dates Challenge: #3, The Movies
Summary: Mission's over, just like that.
Disclaimers: The two of them would get sick of me pretty quickly if I owned them.
Reno leaned up against a handy wall, then grimaced when he felt something vaguely sticky beneath his fingers and pulled away hastily with a grimace of disgust.
“Why would a target be wandering here?”
The two of them stood in the semi-darkness, surrounded by the breathless silence of the moviegoers and the goings-on onscreen.
“It’s what was reported.”
Reno resisted the urge to roll his eyes. “I still don’t think—hey, phone.”
Rude answered with a voice of utmost detachment, though he was sure several members of the audience flashed him a dirty look—it was hard to tell, sunglasses in darkened movie theaters didn’t do much for vision—before they turned back hastily once they realized what exactly the two of them were. Armed and dangerous, as it were. And Turks, which were notoriously Without Rules.
“…You found them. In Golden Saucer. Molesting chocobos.” Rude could’ve sworn he heard Elena’s blush even over her embarrassed stammering. An abrupt end to the conversation followed shortly after, punctuated with Reno’s half-hearted attempts not to burst into delighted laughter at their fellow Turk’s mortification.
Rude frowned at him as he hung up, “You’re a terrible person.”
A cheeky grin was his response, “You know you love me.”
“I’m beginning to wonder why.”
A few moments of silence later, and a mutual staring up at the screen, Reno spoke up again, “So… now what?”
“Mission’s over. We go home.”
“But we just got here.”
Reno could tell that the look Rude gave him was clearly a ‘raised eyebrow of askance’ even with the sunglasses, in their bizarre near-darkness setting. “You want to stay here?”
He shrugged. “Could be fun.”
“Reno, this is a movie house.”
“Yeah, I got that part.”
“An X-Rated movie house.”
“For gay men.”
“…Call it a date?”
I am going to get very sleepy by the time this is done... @.@;
