"Stop laughing, BA, it's not funny!" Face growled at the sergeant who was driving the van.
"Sorry, Face." BA snickered only to break out into a giggling laugh.
"He's right, BA, it's not funny. It's hilarious. You should see yourself, Facey," Murdock proclaimed as he also broke out into a fit of laughter directed at the lieutenant sitting next to him in the back of the van.
"Alright guys, that's enough. Leave him alone,"
"Come on, Colonel, he looks so cute. So tell me, Face,
is this how you keep so young looking? Mud baths? Is
"That's it, let me out. BA pull over now!"
"Come on, man, we're only a mile from your house."
"Now!" Face yelled.
"Colonel?" BA glanced
"Face, calm down."
"Pull over, BA,"
Face looked at the warning in his colonel's blue eyes and proceeded to pull the door open.
"Son of a bitch! STOP, BA! NOW!"
Face didn't even hesitate but kept walking, with his back ramrod straight, toward the beach house he and Hannibal shared.
"I guess we made him mad," Murdock spoke softly from the back of the van.
"Man, what's with him? Never seen Face like that. He's always been able to take a joke."
"I don't know, BA, but I sure as hell plan on finding
"You need any help, Hannibal?"
"No, go on BA. I can take care of this problem. He's been acting like a ass since last night and I've had enough of it."
"Sure man, call if you need help."
"Good luck, Colonel," Murdock called out to
"What do you think has gotten into Faceman?" Murdock asked as BA turned the van around to head towards the VA.
"Don't know, fool, but I know I wouldn't want to be in
his shoes when
"What the hell is wrong with you, kid?" he spoke to himself as he entered the front door.
"You want to know what's wrong? I'll tell you wants wrong, COLONEL!" Face snarled behind him.
"You want to know
"You can drop the attitude first thing,"
"Forget it. Just forget it!" Face started to march
This time the colonel was having none of it. He grabbed Face by the arm and pulled him into his chest, holding on so Face couldn't pull away.
"What is wrong with you?"
"How about the fact that you damn
near got me killed today with your stupid training exercise!" Peck
"What are you talking about? If this is about the extra three miles I made you run for pussy footing it around the course…"
"It has nothing to do with the three miles! How about the fact that the damn zip line that YOU set up and
secured broke, dropping my butt 10 feet into a mud hole. Or did you just
forget about that!" Face snapped as he tried to pull away from
"That's just an excuse, kid, and you know it. You've been pissed at the world since before we left the house this morning. Now what the hell is going on?"
Face took a deep breath then used all his strength to jerk
himself out of
Reaching into his mud-covered pocket, Face pulled out a
water logged receipt and threw it at
"You told me when we started this relationship never to
lie to you! Then you told me to trust you, that you
would never hurt me; and then you go and do this to me!" Face screamed at
"Face, you don't understand..." Hannibal started to speak but Face cut him off.
"Who the hell is Mary,
"Tem, it's not what it looks like."
"I am going to get into the shower and get cleaned up. When I get out, I want you gone."
"Face, you don't…"
"If the team needs me, call. Other than that, I don't want to see or hear from you." Face stated coldly then turned and walked from the room.
Hannibal looked down at the receipt again. 'How did you find
this kid? Damn it! It wasn't suppose to happen like
Face stood under the shower nozzle with the water as hot as he could stand it.
How could he let this happen to himself? Face had told
himself over and over again not to fall in love. Not to get attached, not to
share his emotions with anyone else. But, god, he loved
Face scrubbed his body from head to toe removing all the mud he had been covered in by the training course. Once clean, he waited until the water went cold before stepping out.
"Hell, it's not like
When he stepped out of the bathroom he was not totally surprised to see Hannibal sitting on the bed waiting for him.
"I thought I asked you to leave." Face's voice was cold and harsh.
"Face, come here please." Hannibal asked softly.
Face crossed his arms over his bare chest and glared at the colonel.
Face took a deep breath and slowly made his way over to the bed.
Face looked down at Hannibal sitting on the bed.
Face stared into his lovers blue eyes. He didn't want to do this, he wanted to stay mad. He wanted to turn his back and walk out of the room, but he couldn't.
'Just let him say what he wants then tell him to get the hell out,' Face thought to himself as he turned a cold gaze toward his commander.
Once Face was seated,
"Tem, please let me explain to you."
"Please, Tem, just be quiet for a minute, will you kid. I know you're mad at me and I'm sorry. It wasn't suppose to be like this. I wanted to wait till everything was perfect…"
"Perfect? When were you going to tell me? At your wedding with Mary?"
A confused look crossed
Suddenly everything became clear to
"Oh god, kid, is that what you were thinking when you saw the receipt? No wonder you're so pissed. The receipt was filled out wrong, Tem. The rings aren't for a girl named Mary. She was the sales clerk who rang up the order."
"Yes, Tem, rings."
"Templeton Peck, will you please marry me?" Hannibal asked.
"Rings?" Face question again.
"Yes, love, rings. Will you marry me? Will you be Mr. Templeton Smith?"
Tears formed in Faces eyes as he looked down at
"Yes," he whispered.
"Yes," Face stated a little more clearly this time.
"I love you, Templeton, with all my heart. And I WILL
NOT lie to you, and I will do EVERYTHING I can to keep you safe and protect you,"
Face wrapped his arms around
The colonel reached down and gently took his lieutenant's face into his hand.
"You're forgiven, kid. If you can forgive me for not securing that zip line correctly?"
Before the blond could answer,
"The bed's a whole lot softer than the floor."
"It sure is."
"By the time you get out I'll have completely forgiven you for the zip line."
"Sounds like a plan, kid."
"Sure, kid, whatever you want."
Face smiled to himself as he heard
He then leaned back and thought of how he was going to warm his future husband back up after he got out of the shower.
