Watching Your Back

Author: Mistress Lrigtar


Rating: PG

Summary: Just some thoughts of Murdock's after the events in the episode "The Sheriffs of Rivertown".

Warnings: None.



He's doing it again.  He's gonna kiss the girl to prove something to all of us.  I'm not real sure what that something is – that he can, he wants to, he's a woman's man.  What'cha tryin' to prove, Faceguy?


Hannibal shoots me a look.  God, does he know?  He looks kind of concerned… or annoyed.  Shit, even BA looks uncomfortable.


Don't do it, Face.  I can tell you don't want to.  It's all for show.  Maybe the girl's falling for it, but even Hannibal and BA can tell it's fake this time.  Of course, they won't say anything; they never do.  'Cause this isn't the first time you've given us a show.


I am sure not going to watch.  I've had my fill time and time again.  You and I both know you're just sticking it to me.  Murdock does not want to play that game, Face.


You started it and you know it.  Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.  You shouldn't have said, 'Watch my back.'  I mean, come on!  What's a guy to do then, huh?  All I could do was watch your back.  And it was lookin' good, so I couldn't resist, I had to say it.


'Face, your back.' Dramatic pause while he half turns to acknowledge me, and whatever I am going to say. 'It's lookin' good.'


Now, he could have taken that however he liked.  I'd like to think I said it in such a way that he couldn't tell what I was thinking.


The ball was in his court. 


Damn, he let it bounce until it hit a wall, and gave me that look.  The one that says he isn't even going to go there.  The one that says 'I'm going to pretend you didn't just say what I think you said.'  It meant he was gonna be dismissive later – maybe show me up.  Make a point, like he is now, kissing that girl.  I hate it when he does that.


I just can never tell with him.  Sometimes he plays along, and it is great fun.  I read him wrong this time for sure.  I never would have made the comment otherwise.  Or would I have?


Damn!  I'm so confused; I can't even tell what I would do!


I need a drink.  The milk didn't cut it.  I don't care what the ugly mud sucker says.  Milk is no substitute for a shot of whiskey.  I gave it the good ol' college try – back when I was supposed to be watching Face's back.  Watchin' his back is what made me need the drink.  All I got was a cold headache from swallowing the milk too fast.


A cold headache, and now Face kissing the girl.


And here's the real kicker – if he asked me – I'd watch his back again.
