Team Dinner
By Daylyn

Aaron pulled Spencer in closer to his chest as they lay sprawled on his bed, and gently kissed the top of Spencer’s head. Spencer shifted and looked up at him; they kissed lazily, the slow slide of tongues eliciting soft moans. Spencer pulled away with a soft sigh and put his head back on Aaron’s chest. Aaron kissed the top of his head again.

Aaron sighed in contentment, his body sated and loose. He stroked his hand along Spencer’s sweaty back.

He noticed, however, that Spencer was tenser than he should be after such intense love-making. “What’s wrong?” Aaron asked gently.

“Why do you think something is wrong?” Spencer replied, a little too quickly.

“Because your body feels tense. And because you’re too defensive when responding to the question.”

“Damn profilers,” Spencer muttered.

Aaron waited. He knew that Spencer would eventually tell him when something was bothering him, but he learned, the hard way, that pushing Spencer when he wasn’t ready to talk would exacerbate the situation.

Spencer eventually sighed. “We have to tell them, don’t we?”

Well, that was interesting.

I just felt what appears to have been a 6.9 earthquake in Baja California, Mexico, which is a few hundred miles from Los Angeles. It was just gently rolling here, but it went on for quite some time and my building just kept going back and forth, gently. My dog ran to the door and wanted to get out. My one cat looked grumpy (although he always looks grumpy). My other cat slept through it. Yeah, they're great predictors of quakes.

Hope that wasn't a precursor for an even bigger quake. *crosses fingers*

ETA: It looks like it's been upgraded to a 7.2 quake. That explains why I felt it so far away.
