Night and Day By Perpetual Motion
Leo woke up to lips pressing aginst his collarbone. He lifted his hand and stroked the hair by his chin. "You're leaving."
"I have to."
"Leo." He said the name softly, with a slightly sad edge to it. "You just got *out* of a scandel. This could land you back in one."
"It's not even midnight, yet. You still have time."
"I don't." He wrapped an arm around Leo, kissed his neck. "If I stay any longer, someone is going to notice. They'll notice the bedroom light."
"Leo-" This time the name was spoken with fond exasperation. "I know these things, I'm trained to look for these things. It'll be bad enough if anyone saw me come in. If I don't leave for a few more hours, the eyes and ears are going to go nuts thinking we're sharing information or you're giving me a story you won't give anyone else."
"Or they could think we're friends, and you came over to watch the game."
"You really want the Press Corps thinking you're friends with a reporter? It'll make you look soft."
"Beats people thinking we're sleeping together. Not that we actually do that, since you have a bad habit of *leaving* in the middle of the night." Leo was kissed on the mouth, and he took advantage of it, rolling so he was on top. "You're trapped. You have to stay now."
"Danny." Leo said it with an edge in his voice that made Danny shiver. "Just another hour."
"If anyone saw me-"
"I'd have them arrested for stalking." Leo kissed Danny again. "Just an hour."
Danny sighed and groaned and finally gave in. "An hour. That's it."
Leo's grin was contagious.
Leo turned on his heel at the sound of the voice. "Shouldn't you be bugging CJ?"
"I'm bored. You got a minute?"
"Go away, Danny."
