Unconditional

Kre17


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."
