Unconditional by kre17 Rating: PG Archive: Yes Summary: Takes place after the fight between Face and Murdock in Family Reunion. Murdock's real reason for not telling Face about A.J. Warning: My first attempt at slash, no sex(sorry guys, just testing the waters at this point!) Disclaimer: don't own the team<sigh> the lyrics are from the song Unconditional by Clay Davidson.
But you can't stop my love for you It'll be here that's a given As long as I am living on this earth One thing is true You can turn away, forget me curse my name, but love won't let me let you go, `cause I'll always know My love is unconditional. Words scribbled on a piece of paper. A simple refrain from a song but to Face it meant so much more. It was in Murdock's handwriting and the name Templeton Peck was scribbled inside a heart next to it. Spots on the paper were crinkled, like someone had crumpled it up in frustration. Some words were running, as if they had been washed with tears from the writer's breaking heart. He flipped the page over to find the same lyrics, a few more lines added and others had changed the direction of emotion with the simple adding of a different word. And before you slammed that door You said "I hate you." Well tonight if only you could hear me say You can't stop my love for you It'll be there that's a given As long as I am living on this earth One thing is true You can turn away, forget me Curse my name, but love wont let me let you go, cause I'll always know My love is unconditional. You can turn away forget me Curse my name, but you can't even let me go But you need to know, my love Is unconditional. Face felt so bad about the argument between the two of them over A.J. Bancroft. This was his best friend. They had saved each other countless times, here and in `Nam. But these words on this paper, they gave a whole new insight into the wonderful mind that was Murdock's. Could it be possible he had stronger feelings for Face than just brotherly affection? He looked over the lyrics again and felt his heart swell in sadness. He had been horrible to him. ~We've never had to stumble over our lips~ Face sighed. He wanted to stumble over to those lips and kiss the life out of that man. He laughed. What a shock to the rest of the team if they knew the thoughts running through his head, the self- proclaimed ladies man, falling head over heels for an insane but sweet- natured pilot. He ran his fingers over the tear-stained words on the paper. He looked up as Murdock walked in the room. He blanched as Murdock looked from the piece of paper to the soft blue eyes of his secret love. Murdock began to shake. "Facey, I can explain..." Face walked over and pressed a finger to his lips. "You don't have to, H.M. I already know," he answered. "I'm sorry for making you so upset." Face ran his hand down the side of Murdock's cheek. "I could never hate you. I've never noticed how much you tend to bring out the best things in me. I had no right to judge you about your intentions when I found out you knew about A.J. You were doing what you thought was best for me." Murdock looked deep into those endless blue eyes. "You don't hate me for what I've written?" Face leaned in and pressed his lips to Murdock's, savoring the sweet taste that was Murdock. He locked his arms around his waist and pulled him closer. "You can't stop my love for you. It'll be here that's a given, as long as I a living on this earth, one thing is true. You can turn away, forget me, curse my name but love won't let me let you go. You need to know my love is unconditional." Murdock smiled. "Point taken and returned, muchacho. So does this mean you're not gonna go skirt chasing anymore?" Face ran his hands down Murdock's back. "Only if you're wearing one." Murdock took the initiative and ran his tongue gently along Face's bottom lip. Opening himself up completely to him. Emotion overtaking his sensibilities until they were both breathless from passion. Face pulled back. "Close the door, Murdock." Murdock raised his eyes, but did as he was told. Face stretched out on the bed as Murdock made his way back over. He looked a little leery of what was happening. Face patted the spot next to him. He laid down next to him and Face wrapped himself around the pilot. "Nothing more than this for today. I need comfort, not sex. Just hold on to me so I know this is really happening." Murdock kissed the top of Face's blonde head. "Anything you want, Face. We've got all the time in the world for the rest." Face sighed and snuggled next to him. He was drifting off to sleep and heard Murdock singing softly. He only caught one line as he drifted off into a peaceful slumber. "My love is unconditional."
