“Sure, why not? This is as good a time as any, don’t you think?” Blair inquired.
“I’ll go get him and send him your way. Remember to keep calling him sir. That makes him feel better.” Joel walked out of the room and headed right for Simon’s office. He stuck his head in and told him that Blair was waiting to see him in the interrogation room. Simon grabbed his gross, wet, chewed cigar and stuck it in his mouth and headed down the hall.
When he walked in, Blair said, “Could you please sit down, sir, I have something to tell you.”
“My God, this must be horrible, you called me sir.” Simon sat down as requested and waited for the bomb to hit.
“I wanted to let you know that Jim and I are a couple.”
“And?” Simon asked, looking somewhat confused.
“No, that’s it, Simon.”
“Well, hell, everyone knows that. Just be sure and keep it out of the workplace so I don’t have complaints about you two working together. Understood?”
“Understood, sir. Thank you for accepting us,” Blair answered. Blair didn’t realize that everyone already knew and accepted them. This confused him a little bit.
“What is there to accept? Ever since you came on board, it was one thing building to another until this is all that was left. Take good care of him, Sandburg and don’t fuck with his mind again.”
“Yes, sir,” Blair answered, happily.
Simon walked out of the room with Blair bouncing behind him. Blair couldn’t believe how easily this was going down.
Simon walked by Jim’s desk and patted Jim on the back and smiled at him. No words were said. None were needed. Jim knew the smile. It was one of acceptance and understanding.
Blair sat down across from Jim and smiled. “Only have Henri left.”
“You decided against telling Rafe?” Jim asked.
“He’ll probably just get ugly,” Blair said.
“He’s always ugly,” Jim joked.
Rafe and Brown walked into the bullpen and Brown said, “Wasn’t this a kick ass morning?”
“Could I talk to you guys in interrogation room two?” Blair asked, deciding at the last moment that he could handle Rafe.
Jim just smiled at the notion of Blair taking them both on at the same time.
“Sure, Hairboy, we’ll follow you in,” Henri said as he started for the room. Rafe looked a little worried, with good reason.
Once they were all in the room, Blair shut the door and said, “Sit down, dudes. I have some news that’s going to knock your socks off.”
Both men sat down and waited for the news. Blair started pacing and opened his mouth twice and nothing came out.
“Sandburg, we have things to do if you don’t have anything to tell us,” Rafe snapped.
“Okay, Rafe. You know how I said I agreed with you about two guys not loving each other?” Blair started.
“Yeah, so?” Rafe answered.
“I lied. I lied big time. I’m in love with Jim and he’s in love with me. We’re a couple and don’t even say a couple of what.”
Henri jumped up and gave Blair a hug. “Congratulations, Hairboy. I knew you two would end up together. I just knew it.”
Rafe sat there thinking. He hadn’t said a word.
Blair said, “So I take it you’re totally disgusted with us, Rafe?”
“You could say that. I’ll get over it. But things will change around here and they won’t be for the better,” Rafe said.
“What are you talking about?” Brown asked.
“Once it gets out, they won’t have back-up when they need it and someone might hurt them,” Rafe explained.
“Why would anyone find out?” Blair asked.
“Gossip isn’t a good thing, Sandburg,” Rafe said.
“But why would anyone be talking about us?” Blair had to know.
“I’m sure you’ll be kissing and all of that here and it won’t take long,” Rafe said.
Both Brown and Blair burst out laughing.
“Rafe, I’ve been with Jim for two months and we still don’t make out at the station. What we do in our own home is another story. But here at the station will be a public place that we would never try and ruin. Don’t worry about us, man, we’ll be fine. Are you still planning on coming over every Saturday for poker games?” Blair asked.
Brown said, “You bet. I can’t wait for Saturday.”
“I’ll be there. I really am happy for you and Jim, if you’re really serious. I just hope you do keep it out of the station. You two don’t need any trouble from any of the other cops if they found out. I would feel horrible if something happened to either of you. I wish that my brother could find someone like you guys instead of the jerks he finds. He’s going to be alone forever.”
“We’ll help him find someone, Rafe. I know some gay dudes that are really nice guys. Smart and good looking too. We’ll get him aimed in the right direction,” Blair promised.
“Thanks, Sandburg, he could use some help,” Rafe admitted.
“Can we go back to work now?” Henri asked.
“Yeah, fun and games are over,” Blair said as the three of them walked back to the bullpen.
Henri and Rafe both clapped Jim on the back as they walked by and Jim knew things were going to be fine. He didn’t know how Blair did it, but he always seemed to know what to say or do to make people understand things. It was one of Blair’s greatest gifts and Jim was thankful.
They all finished their paperwork for the day and said their goodbyes and went down to the parking garage. Jim opened the door up for Blair, which made Blair smile, and then Jim blushed. Blair loved when he took this man off guard and made him blush. In fact, it was a major turn on. He got into the truck and leaned over and opened up the door for Jim. Blair was thrilled because it made Jim blush again. Blair just knew this was going to be fun, being in love with someone that embarrassed easily.
They talked about the cases they would have to work on the next day and before long they were in the parking lot at the loft. Both men were anxious and both of them knew the other one was, too.
As they walked into the loft, Blair asked, “What would you like me to make for dinner? It’s my turn to cook.”
Jim grabbed Blair and pushed him up against the door and started to kiss him. “I want you for dinner,” Jim growled.
“You’ll be hungry an hour later,” Blair teased.
“Then we’ll eat again,” Jim said as he pulled Blair towards the stairs.
“You seem sort of eager to get this show on the road, is someone horny?” Blair joked.
“I want you and now,” Jim answered.
They got upstairs and clothing was flung all over the room. Before long, they were both naked and already hard as rocks. Blair shoved Jim onto the bed and went between his legs and headed for his cock. As he took Jim’s member into his mouth, Jim said, “Chief, I’m not going to last long.”
Blair thought, how cute and sucked twice and Jim howled and came down Blair’s inviting throat. Blair came up for air, swallowing like crazy and said, “You weren’t kidding were you?”
“That’s why I warned you.”
Smiling, Blair got the lube out and started to stretch his big man, with Jim moaning happily the entire time. When Blair felt he was stretched enough, he pulled Jim’s legs around his waist, put a condom on, slicked it up with lube and started pushing his way into Jim. Blair couldn’t believe how good Jim felt.
“God, I love you, Jim.”
“I love fucking your ass.”
“You’re so tight-it’s making me come closer and closer.”
“Oh God, I’m going to come.”
Blair laughed at another ‘good’ answer and came into Jim’s tight channel, throwing back his head and growling, ‘Jim’.
As Blair said Jim, Jim came all over both of them. Blair was amazed at a person being able to come without being touched. But then again, he was talking about Jim. Super Sentinel Man.
Blair finally slid out of Jim’s ass and he got up and cleaned them both up. Jim turned on his side and started to fall asleep.
“Oh no you don’t. I want to discuss this with you,” Blair ordered.
“Discuss what, Chief?”
“So, how was it?” Blair asked, practically bouncing on the bed.
“You rocked my world, Blair. It was perfect. I haven’t ever felt that good. I mean that. You made me feel better then anyone ever has.”
“I’m always serious when it comes to my ass,” Jim said.
“I had a really good time,” Blair confessed.
“I could tell,” Jim teased.
Blair snuggled up close to Jim and said, “Was it truly the best you’ve ever had?”
“Yes, Chief, it was the best I’ve ever had. Now it’s time for a power nap. Then dinner.”
“You don’t talk much during or after sex do you?” Blair asked.
“No, I sure don’t. Believe me, I had a great time, I thought you could tell. Now I need a power nap, I’m old.”
“Old my ass,” Blair said as he took Jim into his arms and held him close.
“I love you, Blair.”
“And I love you, Jim.”
“I’m so damn grateful about that,” Jim said quietly.
“I’m sorry it took me so long to realize how much I love you. I’m sometimes a little slow on the uptake. It won’t happen again.”
“And by the way, thank you for taking on everyone at work and telling them about us. I really appreciate that. I get embarrassed easily. I’m not embarrassed about us, I just get embarrassed talking about us to other people. So again, I thank you for being you. I knew you’d have everyone in our corner by the end of the day.”
Blair rubbed Jim’s temple until Jim fell asleep in his arms and then Blair followed close behind.
Both men had showered together, fooled around some more and were lounging in the living room, wearing their sweats, when there was a knock at the door. Blair looked over at Jim and Jim said, “It’s Rafe.”
Blair got up and answered the door. “Hello, Rafe, what’s up?”
“I’m sorry for not calling ahead of time but I was in the neighborhood and thought I would stop in to talk to you guys,”
Jim laughed and asked, “How many times did you have to drive around before you got the nerve up?”
“Very funny, Ellison. Okay, it took me about two hours to get up the nerve. I told my brother about you guys and he was thrilled of course and wants to meet some of these people that you spoke of. I told him I would tell you tomorrow, but he wanted to ask tonight,” Rafe said, all in one breath.
“He’s with you?” Jim asked.
“Yeah, he’s downstairs. Would you mind talking to him? He’s been really depressed lately and he was thrilled to hear that there are couples that make it in the gay world.”
“So go and get him, Rafe. We’ll chat with him tonight and have some of my friends over from Rainier this weekend to meet him. What’s his name?” Blair asked.
“Tom. Thank you both for doing this. You’re the best,” Rafe said as he rushed out the door to fetch his brother.
“Why don’t we put a sign outside the door that says, “Matchmakers Inc?” Jim kidded.
“Just remember how much fun we’ll have tonight after they leave. Just keep telling yourself how you get to fuck me tonight and it’ll make things better,” Blair said.
“Everything is peachy, Chief. No complaints, here.”
They smiled at each other as they waited for their friend to bring his brother up and get the night over with.
