He’s floating in an ocean of bliss.

oOo

To put it more mundanely, he’s floating in the Caribbean Sea, stretched out on the blue and green air bed that’s drifting near the immaculately white Christina Rose, an orange colored glass of juice in his hand, dark glasses on his nose, and wearing nothing but red swimming trunks – no long sleeved shirt, thank God. Between the blue grey lines of the tattoo, his skin is taking on a golden shade. He’s a living ad for Kodak. Or Fuji. Something like that.

He can hear them. Sara on the ship’s deck, Lincoln swimming around the air bed and making it shift each time he comes a bit too close or dives under it. If his brother makes him fall into the water, he’s going to... he’s going to... do something. He’ll think of something.

“I’ve already told you I don’t want you to do that!”

The way Sara’s voice reaches them, loud and clear, he’d bet she’s bent over the ship’s rail, her hands cupped round her mouth.

“She’s talking to you,” he tells Linc. She’s necessarily talking to Lincoln because, as Michael had discovered just a couple of hours ago, there is nothing that Sara doesn’t want him to do. But he will avoid those thoughts now.

“Huh?” Lincoln asks.

A faint splash lets him now that Sara’s just dived into the sea. The air bed teeters a bit, but if he falls into the water because of Sara... it’s totally different if Sara makes him fall into the water. He has this mental picture of her, all iridescent with tiny droplets of water, her skin smooth and salty, her body sliding against him... around him... under him... on him...

He clears his throat and shifts on the air bed.

“My tooth glass,” she explains with annoyance when she comes back to the surface near them. “I’ve already told you that I don’t want you to use my tooth glass.”

And here, Michael muses, Linc’s mistake is that he tries to argue instead of apologizing and promising it won’t happen again.

“You let Michael use it.”

“Michael rinses it after he’s used it.”

“That’s right,” Michael confirms, “I rinse it after I’ve used it.”

“Traitor,” Linc grumbles.

Michael lazily lifts up an eyelid.

“Come again?”

“Moreover,” Sara adds, “Michael and I have ways of exchanging different bodily fluids. The tooth glass is only one of them.”

He lifts up the other eyelid... all right, actually, he opens his eyes wide behind the sunglasses. Wasn’t that retort a bit...

“Urgh!” Lincoln grumbles and wipes his mouth on the back of his hand. Then for good measure, he sinks a bit, fills his mouth with water and spits it back in a small spurt that misses Sara by barely a few inches.

... even totally inappropriate?

“That was just gross, Sara!” Linc protests. “A nice woman like you...”

Oh, that’s not going to work.

“It’s less gross than my glass covered with your toothpaste. I’m a nice woman who worked for three years as a doctor in a state penitentiary. Believe me, nothing you could see and hear in Fox River can compete with what I saw and heard.”

The challenge stings enough so that he’s competitive instead of wise – in other words, this is Linc, Michael thinks while gulping down his orange juice – and he asks, “Oh, wanna bet?”

“No,” Michael cuts them off. “No, thank you. If the tooth glass is really such an issue, I’ll put together a plan and a few rules for its use,” he offers sarcastically. “There is no reason we can’t work this...”

To be honest, he’s only half surprised when Linc grabs the air bed by an end, Sara by the other, and together they tip him into the water. It’s usually how these conversations end. For a reason he doesn’t get, the only thing that his girlfriend and his brother appreciate more than a good argument, is to gang up on him.

He lets himself sink, sink into the clear and tepid water and then, when it starts getting darker and cooler, he pushes on his arms and swims up. He spots Sara’s legs, holds on to her waist and kisses her belly. He drags her down with him, under the water, and kisses her again, on the lips this time around. She tastes like sugar and salt together and he thinks he could stay like that for hours. If their bodies didn’t need oxygen. He can feel her smiling and sliding against him. Right. This is exactly what he was talking about, earlier.

When they come back to the surface, Linc has retrieved the air bed – but not the glass Michael has been using to drink his juice: it’s probably lost for good – and he grabs the sunglasses that are drifting within his reach.

“You know what?” he sighs with resignation. He puts the glasses on. “You can have the boat for a while if I can keep the air bed.”

“On our next call, I’m totally buying you a tooth glass,” Michael offers generously.

Isn’t he a considerate little brother?

He swims in the Caribbean Sea, towards his and Sara’s cabin aboard the Christina Rose, Sara right ahead of him, Linc lying on the air bed right behind them.

oOo

To put it more symbolically, he swims in an ocean of bliss.

oOo

*sighs*

This is absolutely beautiful. I can smell the sea air and the suntan lotion.

“That’s right,” Michael confirms, “I rinse it after I’ve used it.”

Oh, and I can even see the little smirk that goes with those words.

Thank you! :D
It's quite fluffy and kind of AU now but... well, not as much as it used to be *g*
Maz (or foxxy!)tuesdaeschild on August 30th, 2008 02:23 pm (UTC)
Totally delightful!! And told in such a way that I swear I was there watching them!

The images you created here were beautiful, sweetheart, and how I loved the idea of Sara and Lincoln ganging up on Michael...his snarky little confirmation that he rinses her tooth glass after he uses it was just begging for that kind of retribution!!

I think I was floating around in an ocean of bliss too! :)

Oh poor Michael! *giggles*

This could totally happen. In season 5, of course *g*.
Clair de Lune: pb - michael saraclair_de_lune on August 30th, 2008 09:36 pm (UTC)
*g*

This could totally happen. In season 5, of course *g*.

See, this is the thing when you translate an old story, it's become kind of AU. (I wrote it between S2 and S3, before... you know.) But I'm with you, this happening in an ulterior season is totally fine by me ;)

Thank you!

Oh I could read this the whole day and never get tired of it.
You can almost feel the sun and ocean.
So funny and relaxed, i SO love it!
This, again, hammered me completely - He spots Sara’s legs, holds on to her waist and kisses her belly. He drags her down with him, under the water, and kisses her again, on the lips this time around. She tastes like sugar and salt together and he thinks he could stay like that for hours. ... He can feel her smiling and sliding against him. Right.

*melts into a little pool of joy*
Clair de Lune: pb - michael5clair_de_lune on August 30th, 2008 09:36 pm (UTC)

Clair de Lune: pb - michael sara 2clair_de_lune on September 3rd, 2008 06:54 pm (UTC)
It's the translation of an old fic, so I'm afraid it's a bit AU, now :p
Thank you for the nice comment :)
