Summary: John has a present for Rodney.

For mcsheplets prompt #116 - Hide






"What is it?" Rodney eyed the package suspiciously.

John held out the small, lumpy package another small fraction. "It’s a gift, for heaven's sake!" John drew it back, closer to himself. "If you don't want it..."

"It's not my birthday," Rodney countered. His eyes widened. "Wait, it's not our anniversary, is it? We weren't going to do that." There was a slight whine to that last declaration.

"No, it's not our anniversary," John replied patiently. "It's just a present."

"What are you buttering me up for?" Rodney was still suspicious.

John rolled his eyes and waited.

Rodney huffed. "Okay, okay," he muttered as he took the package but John caught a slight blush that made Rodney look charming. Even when it was his birthday, Rodney didn't receive presents well.

Rodney gingerly unwrapped the present – wrapping paper was still a valuable commodity – to find a one inch wide strip of soft, dark leather.

Looking at it carefully, Rodney saw it was actually two layers of leather closely stitched together with laces at one end so it could be worn on a wrist. One side was plain and the other side… Rodney ran his fingers reverently over the stitching that formed a word in Ancient lettering.

"John?" he asked softly.

John came close, taking the leather from Rodney's hand. He wrapped the leather around Rodney's right wrist, lettering inside. Rodney could feel his pulse against the word inscribed there. He leaned in to close the distance between them and breathed against John's lips...

"Forever..."

Oh, how very sweet... and Rodney being all 'what's this really for?' Just take it, Rodney. Take it and say thank you in that special way you have...
Rodney has a list -- in his head -- so he can make sure everything is 'even'... surprises don't factor in at all...

::grin::

Thanks!
AWWWWWWWW!!! So cute!!~ *grins*
::grin::

Thanks!
Lovely, thanks.
Thank you!
I love how Rodney was all suspicious and John ready to bail--and yet they stuck it out because it was *them*. Love too, the utterly romantic gesture of it all. :-)
John knows Rodney well enough to hang in there... and they're both romantics under all that...

Thanks!
Awwwwww.... so sweet! Such a lovely private message :-)
For all Rodney wears his heart on his sleeve, his real thoughts are so much closer to the heart...

Thanks!
Very sweet!
So glad you like it!
fja;fa;s BOYS. My heart is filled with love for them ♥ ♥
Nothing's ever easy for them, is it?

Thanks!
Awww, that's adorable! They can hide their sappy sides as much as they want - we'll still know that they have them. ;)
Underneath, they're all mush... ;-)

Thanks!
"What are you buttering me up for?" Rodney was still suspicious.
That's such a tipical Rodney question!
But it's nice to see that John is able to suprise him. *g*
Even from John, Rodney doesn't understand giving for giving's sake...

Thanks!
*smishes boys*(and you)
::smishes you back::

So lovely! I love the idea of Rodney wearing a symbol of John's love for him.
Rodney doesn't doubt John but he will doubt himself and needs the reminder...

Thanks!
Sweet story. What a lovely thing for John to do. He's such a closet romantic! :D
They're both so sweet, just hard for them to express it!

Thanks!
So sweet :)
::grin::

Thanks!
Lovely. :-D
::grin::

Thanks!
How do you manage to evoke such cuteness in a such a short story? That was so sweet! Thanks Goddess!
