Prison Break - The Usefulness of a Key  
Title: The Usefulness of a Key
Author: clair_de_lune
Characters: Michael/Sara
Category: Het
Rating: PG
Summary: Michael, Sara and a house crowded with guests. (Post-series)
Word Count: ~ 230
Warning: If fluff needs a warning, be warned ;)
Disclaimer: Not mine. Just borrowing them for a while.
Author’s Note: Prompt by luna38: Michael/Sara, the usefulness of a key. This is a tiny sequel to Under Construction. Thanks to recycledfaery for the read-through.


The bedroom smells of fresh paint and waxed wood, and except for the old bed standing between two large windows, is empty. Not an issue. It’s not like they need anything else than the bed; it’s not like, on a few occasions, they didn't do without the bed itself actually, but this isn’t the point.

The first interruption is Maricruz who needs more pillows. Michael patiently explains that the pillows are in the closet by the stairs and she can just help herself. Same thing with bath towels, he adds, just in case.

The second interruption is LJ looking for a book he lent to Sara. The book is in the living room, Sara answers, on the stack of magazines – no, she didn’t finish it, no, she won’t read it tonight, yes, she’s absolutely sure and certain.

The third interruption is Lincoln, who casts an absent-minded glance at Sara’s bare shoulders, heavily sits on the bed on Michael’s side and starts blathering about the teak that was delivered today for the veranda’s floor.

“All of you, you do it on purpose, right?” Michael points out, and his brother shrugs, a smirk grazing his lips.

The fourth interruption is Fernando who barely cracks the door open and throws in their direction, with a wink of an eye, a small key. Michael catches it midair.

“Told you you would need a lock on this door, papi!”

-FIN-

Even ficlets love comments ;)

Eh, mon prompt a été traduit en anglais ^^ ! Du coup, je l'ai relu, je trouve toujours aussi bien.

Pris d'un doute, j'ai vérifié cet histoire de prompt. Visiblement, tu t'es un peu emmelé les pinceaux, mon prompt, tu l'a écrit pour l'histoire de base. C'est toukours bien et adorablement mignon mais du coup, le header est faux.

Aww! LOVE it! Makes me miss Sucre, too!

Thank you!
Only Sucre is nice enough not to bug them along with the others, right?

A lovely ficlet. Perfectly paced and very, very easy to imagine. Made me smile a lot.

Thanks.

I wanted it to be short and fast paced, and it's been a bit of a challenge not to dwell into details, so I'm especially glad you like this aspect.

Thank you for commenting :)

Aw this was so funny. Sucres last comment made me laugh out loud. =DD
(I`m tired though.)
Clair de Lune: pb - sucreclair_de_lune on January 1st, 2009 01:35 pm (UTC)
Hey, it wouldn't be the first time Sucre saved the situation ^_^

Thanks for your comment! :)

Ha, this is adorable. I especially liked Lincoln giving Sara the eye, a little bit, just because.

Hiehie, I guess that for Lincoln, looking a tiny bit can't hurt... ;-)

Thanks for commenting!

Clair de Lune: pb - michael sara 2clair_de_lune on January 1st, 2009 01:27 pm (UTC)
By all means, say it again. It's not like it was the kind of thing I would be tired to read... *g*
Thank you ;)

adorable! i love sucre! he's always got michael's back.

i love the pace. i can literally feel michael (and sara's) exasperation at the constant (perfectly timed and spaced) interruptions.

perfect little touch of michael catching the key in mid-air. such a very 'michael' thing to do, after making swift calculations of the key's velocity & trajectory. LOL
Clair de Lune: pb - michael3clair_de_lune on January 1st, 2009 01:29 pm (UTC)
*nods* I'm pretty sure Sara's is as annoyed as he's - obviously, she couldn't care less about that book LJ had...

such a very 'michael' thing to do, after making swift calculations of the key's velocity & trajectory
lol, I like the idea. It was either that or basic instinct kicking in *g*

Thanks a lot for the comment.

La mise en garde relative au fluff était justifiée, j'en ai bien peur :-p

Merci !
