Drabble: A Lazy, Naked Sunday on the Barge

Fandom: Highlander
Pairing: MacLeod/Methos
Rating: PG-13
Challenge: Written for the highlander100 Challenge #127 "Pet Names"
Author's Notes: Unbetaed. I am tragically monoligual. If anyone who speaks any of these languages can suggest a better translation, please do!


Methos explored MacLeod's body with his mouth. Long, square fingers. "Beautiful." The smooth skin inside his elbow. "Bella." An earlobe. "Schön." A quivering eyelid. "Àlainn." The hollow in his throat. "Krasivyi."

With that word, the relaxed, aroused man under him was transformed into a tight coil of rage. Instinct had Methos crouched 10 feet away.

"Mac?" he called out.

MacLeod's eyes were lost in the past. They slowly focused on him. MacLeod flushed. "I'm sorry. Bad memory."

"I see," said Methos, cautiously. "Anyone we need worry about?"

Mac's tone was calm, but his face betrayed a cold satisfaction. "Not anymore."

oooo, trigger. Nice use of the flashback phenomenon. Can be an advantage, clear memories. Can be a dangerous flaw in the armor.

Honestly, they seem like a clear and present danger to every Immortal's sanity.

If that last is Russian, it should be krasivyi, at least in the LOC system of transliteration (for English).
