Summary: In an attempt to keep Murdock occupied in the van Face gives him a pack of gum. One-shot.
Warnings: Pure silliness actually. Be warned.
A/N: In lieu of the Superbowl…I wrote this. Well, I wrote it during playtime, not during Prince…and I watched the commercials…some of them anyway.
Disclaimer: I don't own anyone…not Face, not Murdock, not BA, not Hannibal…maybe the van…okay fine. Not the van…but can I have the 'vette? Please…
"Are we there yet?"
"How 'bout now…"
"Shudup ya fool!" BA glared daggers in the rearview mirror at Murdock, but quickly turned his eyes on Face when the conman had the audacity to snort.
"But I'm booooooooooooooreeeeeeeeeeeeedddddddddddddd…….."
Face hurriedly stuck his hand in his pocket pulling out a pack of bubblegum. "Here, Murdock. I blew a bubble inside a bubble yesterday, think you can beat it?" Murdock's long fingers had closed over the pack before Face had even finished and he popped two pieces into his mouth.
"You betchya, Facey. I'm gonna blow a bubble in a bubble in a bubble, and I'll call it Norm."
"Norm." Murdock nodded his head for finality and Face sighed, hesitating to lift his gaze and meet BA's.
"Fool bin in mah van twenty minutes. Now I gotta listen to that crazy snappin' his gum…"
"Ahh…" Face rested his hand inside his jacket. "He has a point, BA."
"Shudup, sucka, or you ridin' on the roof."
"Oh, okay, if you feel that way…" The conman tapered off, settling back to listen to the rhythmic pops of Murdock's gum. He closed his eyes to avoid BA's glare and was just on the verge of drifting off…
*SNAP!* "Owww…Fashey, ish sthuck."
split BA's face and he began to giggle,
Twenty minutes later Face settled back into his seat, Murdock twiddling his thumbs and glancing at the other three team members. In between the pilot and Face were the remains of Face's personal effects--he'd settled for a pair of black slacks and a button down shirt, unable to reach anything else in his suitcase—tie, pants, handkerchief…BA was in a grand mood, humming quietly to himself as he looked for their next exit and Hannibal was engrossed in his newspaper. Taking one more quick look at Face and deciding he wouldn't get caught Murdock pulled out the package of gum and slipped two more pieces into his mouth, making sure to stuff the wrappers down the pocket on the back of BA's seat.
The pilot started guiltily, until he realized that Face hadn't opened his eyes. "Yeah?"
"Can you move Billy off my suit?" The corner of the conman's mouth twitched as he heard BA growl and he settled further back into the seat satisfied that Murdock would be annoying someone else.
problemo, muchacho. C'mon
Billy, off of Facey's stuff…oh, no, don't go to the
bathroom on the carpet!"
"Don't touch me, fool!"
"Hey, Big-guy," Murdock continued completely unfazed. "I gotta go…and I'm really not interested in going where Billy just did."
BA sighed and pulled over to the shoulder. Murdock scrambled for Face's side, managing to sit on the conman and elicit an "oof" from him before making it out the door and towards the tree-line. "'annibal, can we leave 'im?"
"Aww, now BA…" started Face, but he was cut off by a glare, and decided it was best to keep silent.
"Would not," BA muttered under his breath, but settled for drumming his fingers on the steering wheel, waiting for Murdock to reappear. He did about thirty seconds later, trampling all over Face's shoes and managing to bruise his stomach when he landed on top of him for the second time.
"I did it Facey, I blew a bubble in a bubble…"
"You gave that fool more gum?!"
"Now, BA…" Face held out his hands defensively when BA turned menacingly in his seat.
"See, look Face!" Murdock demanded his attention, blowing the gum hard causing it to fly and hit Face in the eye. "Whoops."
on it, BA," ordered
"Yes, sir." Murdock at least managed to look somewhat abashed before he got a big grin and snatched the gum from Face's hand, popping it back in his mouth.
"Murdock, that's unsanitary."
"Nuh-uh. Unsanitary is when I caught you kissing the head nurse on my floor."
Face's neck turned red as he hissed, "You promised not to tell."
"Did not. I promised not to tell Kathy. Who you had a date with that night."
Face just closed his eyes and sighed, determined to ignore Murdock and get his nap in before they had to stop for dinner.
"Take this exit BA, we'll stop and get something to eat."
"Ohh, Captain Bellybuster's!! Please! Please! Please!"
BA turned to snap at Murdock and nearly missed the red light. He slammed on the breaks causing Murdock to choke on his newly reacquired gum. Face jumped out of his seat, thumping the pilot on the back and causing the pink wad to go flying right into the back of the sergeant's Mohawk. "Uh-oh…"
BA glanced back and took in the perplexed look on the pilot's face. "Watchya lookin' at?"
"Nothing, BA," said Face quickly. "Just trying to figure out how Murdock is gonna get back in time for the big birthday bash for Richter."
narrowed suspiciously but he was interrupted by
"I think we have peanut butter in the back," whispered Face. "Murdock, no!" he hissed, watching as Murdock lifted thumb and forefinger towards the sticky mass. BA slammed on the breaks for the second time when a dog ran in front of the van, causing Murdock's hand to land on the back of the sergeant's head in an open-handed slap that splattered the gum all over the back of his head.
"Watchya doin', sucka?"
"Sorry, my hand slipped…"
"My hand's gonna slip…"
"Look, another green light,"
Face was staring at the back of BA's head, pale and open-mouthed. Murdock just bounced in his seat, glancing
nervously from the back of BA's head to
"Is there a problem, Sergeant?"
"Where you goin', sucka!?"
"Now, BA…" started Face.
"And you gave him the gum!" Face backpedaled as the irate Sergeant turned on him, and Murdock breathed a sigh of relief.
"You're the one that wanted him to shut up!" snapped Face defensively, pressing himself against the door as far away from the bejeweled hands as possible. BA lunged and Face pulled the door open, falling backwards out of the door and landing hard on the pavement. The car behind them beeped, annoyed, but they stopped as they saw a lanky man in a leather jacket and baseball cap dive out of the door head first to land on Face, before scrambling up, pulling the conman with him.
"Run, Facey, run!" The driver's door opened and slammed shut, revealing an irate BA who took off after them. Face rounded the corner only to smack right into Decker, who grasped him in surprise and then tightened his grip in recognition.
Murdock had been about to run around the corner, but heard the conman's surprised cry of, "Decker!" and halted just short of it, holding up a hand to stop the barreling BA.
"Hush up BA, Decker's got Face."
"Got something to say, Peck?"
"Yeah…" Face grinned as he recognized the quiet whistle around the corner telling him the guys were about to bust him out. "You got any gum?"
