First Meet

Leverage: Eliot/Parker
Warnings: Mentions of Sex (no details)

He was the first one to arrive. He waited inside the lobby of the building across the street. He checked his watch as the minute hand signaled that he'd been there for over 10 minutes waiting. He was about to walk away when he heard the door open. He turned, seeing a blonde female with her back to him.

“You're late.” He snapped.

She turned, her eyes glowing in anger at being snapped at. “Get over......” All the anger drained from her voice and the color from her face. “You.”

Last night...

“You look a little lonely.”

She turned to the voice beside her, a soft smile lighting her face.

“Do I?” She asked.

He nodded towards the two shot glasses in front of her. “Waiting for someone?”

“I was.” She looked down at the shot glasses before lifting one out to him. “Now, I'm thinking it's his loss.”

“His loss.” He took the shot, lifting it slightly in a salute. “My gain.”

Their eyes never left each others as they downed the shot and set the glasses on the counter. He looked at her for a few seconds before taking her hand and gently tugging her off the stool.

“Come on, let's get out of here.”

The Next Morning...

She buried herself deeper under the covers, closing her eyes again and snuggling back against the warmth behind her. A light smile curled on her lips as a heavy arm placed itself about her waist. She laid there for a moment before her eyes snapped open and she realized that the arm on her waist belonged to someone else. She turned, peeking over her shoulders. As her eyes traveled up the length of him, images of the night before flashed in her mind and her whole body seemed to blush. Not wanting to wake him, she slowly slid out of the bed and slipped her dress back on. She got to the door and put her hand on the knob, slowly turning it and slipping out the door.


He opened his mouth to ask her why she snuck out earlier that morning, but before he could, they were joined by their remaining two partners. It wasn't until they were setting things up on the rooftop of the building they'd be breaking into that he had the chance to talk to her.

“You snuck out.” He murmured to her.

“You were sleeping.” She said.

“I was going to invite you to breakfast.”

She paused what she was doing, taking time to absorb that. After a moment, she carried on with what she was doing. “Lets get through this first and then we can talk about breakfast.”

It was several hours before they had the chance to bring it up again. At the end of the job, they started off in opposite directions, but somehow managed to find each other in the early morning light. They walked in silence for a few minutes before either one of them spoke.

“I'm hungry.” She blurted out.

He smiled. “I know a place we can go.”

The two lapsed into a comfortable silence.

“You never told me your name last night.” She said suddenly. “Or today. The others told me who you were, but you didn't tell me.”

He thought back to the night before and earlier today, finally admitting that he hadn't. “No, but neither did you.”


“It's nice to meet you, Parker. I'm Eliot.”
