Title: Quite bold enough
Pairing: BB/DM
Rating: PG13
Disclaimer: Not true and not making a statement about their sexuality
Notes: bit o'silliness as I wait for lunch.

Billy's not exactly sure what persuaded him to allow Dominic to paint his toe nails. He's pretending not to notice, of course. Noticing would give Dominic some sort of bizarre satisfaction.


Bizarre being the operative word here because it was the word to describe Dominic. Who else would decide to pretend to sneak into another mate's trailer, and begin to varnish that person's toenails.

Sure it would be a good joke to pull on one of the others while they napped, but Billy's not napping. He's lying on his couch that is still rather new, and still very firm, a pillow tucked beneath his head as he reads over the script they are meant to be meeting about this evening with Peter.

Apparently Billy will be doing this with bright red toenails.

Billy doesn't put the sheaf of papers down. Doesn't seem like the thing to do to interrupt Dominic's work. Still, he can't resist peeking around the side so that he can watch.

Dominic is kneeling next to the couch, holding the tiny bottle in one hand and the applicator in the other. He came in without a word, which is rather odd in itself, and began working. His tongue is caught between his teeth and his brow furrowed in concentration. When he's finished with one nail, he pierces his lips and blows very gently to dry the varnish. When he's completely finished, he very carefully tightens the bottle and sets it on the floor next to his knee, admiring his work with a bit of smile.

"You've lovely feet."

"Thank you." Billy grins, pleased with the compliment and accepts it as an acceptable explanation. "Where did you get the varnish?"

"Swiped it from Liv."

"Red?"

"She had this pink color but you're rather bold enough for red, I think."

"Thank you, again."

"You're very welcome. Will you leave it on? Just for tonight?"

"I suppose so."

"Thank you."

Billy watches Dominic admiring his feet for a moment more before he goes back to his reading.

"Will you go out for a drink tonight?"

"Haven't missed a night," Billy says, without missing a word in his reading. "It wouldn't be hobbitity to not have a drink with the lads."

"I was thinking something a little less hobbitity and a bit more... um..."

Billy does look up this time, interested in what has Dominic stumbling over his words as he draws a finger over the edge of one of Billy's big toes. "Um...what? I think I missed that last part."

"A bit more cousinly."

"One of those families where the cousins are distant relatives or where they're rather closer."

"Rather closer, I was thinking."

Billy's very amused now, quite delighted with the concentration and attention with which Dominic is lavishing on the tiniest toe of his left foot. "Has this whole thing been a chat up,then?"

"No. A bit. Maybe. Yeah."

Now Billy's smile grows directly in proportion with the growth in Dominic's smile as he realizes that his ploy was probably successful. "Shall I leave my toes painted still?"

"Please. I rather like them like this."

"But you'll take it off in the morning, yeah?"

"If you want--in the morning?" If possible, Dominic's smile intensifies as he bounces on his knees a bit.

"Just planning ahead," Billy says as he returns to his reading. "Like a boy scout, you know. Always prepared."

A kiss on the tip of each of his toes tells Billy that the thought is much appreciated, a low laugh and the click of the door let him know he's alone again. He rests the script on his stomach and looks down at his very bright toes. Wiggling them, he decides that he might keep them like this for bit longer than tomorrow.

Very sweet, slightly funny. I liked it. I love the image of Billy with bright red toenails. I especially liked the tenative edge on Dom.

"No. A bit. Maybe. Yeah."


Ohhh yeah, I liked it.

Thank you :) I've never been inclined to think of Billy with bright red toenails, but simply couldn't resist for some reason.

Perfect -- fluffy but not sticky-sweet. Smart-ass boy flirting is one of my favorite things.
