Thanks to mystressxoxo for the beta.



His boxer shorts ending up on her butt back in Chicago, when they reunited, should have been his first clue: Sara is a borrower.

Not that he minds it.

She drinks from his glass, steals from his plate, uses his razor to shave her legs, grabs the book he’s reading before he’s finished it... He could go on and on. But mostly, she scrounges off his clothes.

Not only doesn’t he mind it, but he also enjoys it. A lot. He likes the notion of her in his clothes; he loves the intimacy it implies; he basks in the feeling of closeness.

Today, it’s one of his shirts – a plain, white linen shirt – that Sara targeted and stole. He watches her move in it, swallows hard and asks with a raspy voice, “Do you have any idea what you wearing my clothes does to me?”

She smiles, but he barely notices it. He’s too focused on the way the soft material kisses her shoulders, brushes her hips and buttocks and makes you imagine the swell of her breasts. As far he’s concerned, the whole thing is a study in false decency.

She spins on her heel to face him, to plaster herself against him, stomach to stomach and her arms tight around his neck. Maybe it’s the thought of his scent all over her because she didn’t wash the shirt before shrugging it on; or it’s the thought of her scent all over him when he gets the shirt back, later; possibly it’s just because he can picture the moment he’ll remove it from her, slowly and teasingly. Whatever the reason, all he’s able to do is wrap his arms around her and hold her close. He can feel her grin when she presses their mouths together; he can taste the orange juice she sipped from his glass when she gently licks his lips.

When she finally answers, her eyes are twinkling with mischief.

“Do you have any idea what me wearing your clothes does to me?”

I would have never guess, but I miss them. Especially when it's you who write them. :)

Hey! Hi there!

If I pretend that S3 and S4 never happened, I miss them too. Sadly, at this point, I think I miss the fandom thing and writing frenzy (especially mine *g*) more than I miss the show itself.

On a less whiny note... thank you ;-)

*flails* It's like a companion piece to that saucy boot!fic you wrote me last year. *hugs you*

I love it. Love the idea of Sara as a borrower, and that orange juice-flavoured kiss is just delicious. Thank you so much!
Clair de Lune: pb - michael saraclair_de_lune on October 18th, 2009 09:53 am (UTC)
Oh, the boot!fic... Yes, indeed. I seem to have a theme going on with Sara's clothing and Michael being smitten with it ;-)

Thanks a lot, Jen. I'm happy you enjoyed it :)

It's a theme I can certainly live with, that's for sure. *smirks*

Thank you again, so much!

Every now and then, fluff is healthy and good for the soul *nods*

Thank you ;)

Thank you for writing this wonderful piece :)

Oh, this is such a cute and nice thing to say. Thanks so much for your kind words!

Extraordinarily delicious!! I might have slash tendencies but these two still make my heart melt!

Love it, sweetheart, and what a gorgeous fic for Jen's birthday! And how she deserves it!

*hugs*
Clair de Lune: pb - michael saraclair_de_lune on October 19th, 2009 05:48 pm (UTC)
You have slash tendencies? *grins and hugs you* Well, shipping Michael/Sara and slashing isn't antinomic, huh? As both of us ought to know :-p

Jen certainly deserves a little happily ever after 'verse, and I'm glad if I could provide a bit of it. Thank you, Foxy!
Maz (or foxxy!): M and Stuesdaeschild on October 20th, 2009 11:40 am (UTC)
Erm...okay, I have het tendencies then!! *giggles* But you're right! It's okay to do both!! ;)

You're welcome, sweetheart. And I'm sure Jen loved it too. :)

This was a nice little surprise this afternoon. I loved it! *g*

Apparently, I needed something as special as Jen's birthday to kick my Michael/Sara muse awake ;-)

Thanks for the read and the comment, Cathy :D Glad you enjoyed.

This is short and sweet, and this line

"he can taste the orange juice she sipped from his glass"

makes it even more so.
Clair de Lune: pb - michael saraclair_de_lune on October 19th, 2009 06:36 pm (UTC)
Oh, the orange juice... Yes, because Sara not only steals his clothes but also his food. Although he doesn't seem to complain ;)

Thanks so much for reading and for the nice comment :)
