Controlled Love, Part 11: Meeting

Title: Meeting
Series: Controlled Love, Part 11. Start the series here.
Fandom: A Bit of Fry & Laurie
Pairing: Tony/Control
Rating: PG13
Summary: It's coffee time. There is no way in this world that a conversation between these two can be limited to 100 words; I needed 500 to do it justice. I hope this lives up to expectation!
Disclaimer: No ownership claimed, just oodles of love for these characters.

Meeting

"Good morning, Tony. What can I do you for?" He tried sounding nonchalant.

"Well, Control, it's eleven o'clock, and I thought you might like a cup of nice coffee."

"Thank you, Tony. That's most kind of you." Tony is kind, thought Control. And strong and handsome and utterly sweet.

Tony blushed at the compliment. He thought Control's hair looked particularly dark and silky today; he could almost feel it trapped between his fingers. He felt rather tingly all over.

"Tony, are you quite all right? I only ask because your face is somewhat reddish. You're not getting sick, I hope."

It's just like Control to worry about one of his agents, thought Tony. But the attention just made him blush harder. He felt a light film of perspiration break out on his forehead.

"No, Control, I don't believe I'm getting sick. But thank you for inquiring after my health. It, er, just seems to be rather warm in your office today, if you don't mind my saying so." He ran a finger inside his shirt collar, which felt unexpectedly constricting.

"No, Tony, I don't mind at all. In fact, I quite agree with you—it does seem very warm in here today." Control squirmed in his chair. He was grateful that he was sitting behind his large desk; he was experiencing a decided tightness in the front of his trousers.

"That's right. It does."

Neither man spoke for a moment or two, each lost in his own thoughts. Tony suddenly remembered the cup in his hand. "I don't guess you'll want that cup of hot coffee then, eh, Control?" He felt just a little disappointed.

"Oh, Tony, of course I do! I always want your coffee!" The emphasis was unintended; now it was Control's turn to blush.

Tony's face brightened. "Never you worry, Control. I'm always happy to bring you your morning coffee."

Their eyes met. Tony extended his arm to place the saucer on Control's desk just as Control reached to take it form his hand. Fingers brushed lightly, skin touched skin, and they both felt a reaction race from fingertip to spine to groin. Unable to hold the gaze any longer for fear of what would be given away, they each averted their eyes and uncomfortably cleared their throats.

Tony spoke first. "Well, Control, I'll just pop out and ask Valerie to have maintenance stop by to take a look at your thermostat."

Control brushed away the hair that had fallen over his forehead. "Thank you, Tony. That's very kind of you."

Tony made his way to the door on rather shaky legs. "Not at all, Control. I'm glad to do it." He opened the door, then turned back. "Oh, and Control?"

"Yes, Tony?"

"If I might say, your office might be warm, but having a boss like you is 'cool'." And before Control could respond, Tony was gone.

"Boh!" Control caressed the saucer where Tony's hand had held it and smiled to himself. "Get along with you."

Dear lord, that was hot and adorable. There are times when I want to call Tony a bit of a dork, and this is one of them, but it's alright. They are so sweet together! <3

Yes, you did it great justice. May I yell at them to confess already?

A little bit of a dork? They are both total and complete dorks, which is what makes them so absolutely adorable. And somehow, it's what makes thinking of them having sexual thoughts, at all, really ... hot. It squicks most people, but I'm such a sucker for dorkitude.

*shakes head; grins* They are the cutest couple around, and completely hot when it comes to it.

It almost squicks me, but I get over it with the adorableness.

Yeah, Tony is one of the few people for whom dorkiness works. Control is the other person. :)

Yes, you did it great justice.
Aw, thank you so much!

Yes, I think they need to confess, too. But they're not quite ready yet.

More than 100 words! I should stop reading this series right now! *is squeeing in anycase* I feel all tingly. Tension! wonderful wonderful tension! Absolutely wonderful, as always! Its confrontation, without being entirely direct. Love, as always.

Heee! That would be unexpected, since his shirt collars are always far too large on him. As are the rest of his clothes. It's adorable - it makes him look like a little boy playing dress-up in his father's suit.

"That's right. It does."

Haha! Tony agreeing with himself is love.

He was grateful that he was sitting behind his large desk; he was experiencing a decided tightness in the front of his trousers.

Yayyyyy! :D

Sweet and cute and lovely and hot, as always, and I love the longer length! More more more! :)

Honestly? I laughed out loud when I wrote that. I can do picture Tony doing it, although as you say, there's no reason why he'd ever need to.

Yay! I have such fun writing these! I'm glad you're enjoying them! :)

"Oh, Tony, of course I do! I always want your coffee!"

What exactly do you mean by 'coffee,' Control? *g*

"If I might say, your office might be warm, but having a boss like you is 'cool'."

Aaaand Tony just killed the mood.

I don't know...we think it's a mood-killer, but I think Control would think it's clever. Or maybe that's just me. ;)

"... but having a boss like you is 'cool'." - in any other context I'd be chucking the computer across the room, but in Tony and Control context, especially as written you you, it is very very cute! I did enjoy this chapter, absolutely adorable as always and I want to give them squishy hugs more than ever! :-)

Yeah, thank goodness you can get by with just a little bit (or more than a little bit) of lame with these two. I was a bit stuck for a while for a good Tony closing line. ;)

absolutely adorable as always
Awwww, thank you so much! :)

And it's true, Tony's dorkiness cannot be denied. :)
