Written: December 2008. Word count: 300.
"Jethro." Ducky was surprised to see Jethro outside his front door. His surprise increased as Jethro handed him a bouquet of roses.
"These are for you. And these." Now Jethro gave him a bouquet of carnations. "Didn't know what you liked, so I got both. Plus these." Three boxes of chocolates followed the flowers. "And this. Now, this I do know you like." He held out a bottle of Ducky's favorite scotch.
Ducky arms were too full of flowers and chocolates to take the proffered bottle. "Jethro," he said, trying not to drop anything. "Are you feeling quite well?"
"Sure. Feel great in fact. Can I come in?"
"Yes, of course. Please do." Ducky stepped back, still juggling his bundle. He watched in bemusement as Jethro shut the front door and then locked and bolted it behind him. "Jethro?"
"Please do no think I am objecting, I am not, quite the opposite in fact. However, why?"
"Why are you, well, I think 'showering me with gifts' would be a correct term."
"You were right." Jethro took a step towards him and then another.
"About what in particular?" Ducky began to unload the gifts onto the hall table.
"I was jealous."
"Didn't want anyone else to have you."
Ducky felt his mouth grow dry. "Anyone else?" he said softly. "Jethro, are you," he paused. It was ridiculous, it couldn't be. Could it? He swallowed. "Are you saying what I think you're saying?"
"Guess that depends on what you think I'm saying." Jethro moved even closer, so close Ducky could feel the warmth emanating from his body. "I want you, Duck."
"Yeah. I do. I really do. And I'm going to prove it to you." With great care Jethro gathered Ducky into his arms.
