From a sudden and totally not thought through bunny. SPN AU Sam/Gabriel. And since I only have 2½ page so far, I started from line 7, ignoring the page count.
“Your type is young, cute and corruptible. Plenty of those around. Besides, if he's not into guys, you get your shot. Oh! That reminds me,” Gabriel said, while digging his cellphone out of his slightly too tight jeans. He thanked himself mentally for wearing his look-at-my-ass jeans for work this morning, while tapping out a short text and hitting send. Not thirty seconds later, the door to one of the adjacent offices flew open and Balthazar stuck out his head, scanning the cubicles for Gabriel.
“What the hell's that supposed to mean?” He frowned when he found Gabriel. “Dibs? On what?” Gabriel just grinned broadly, leaving Ruby to heave a tortured sigh and point a brief thumb in the direction of Mr. tall, floppy-haired and adorable, who was currently trying to puzzle out the floor plan on the wall, which probably hadn't been updated since the late 60's. When Balthazar spotted him, he rolled his eyes, but still sent Gabriel a good-natured smirk. “Let me know when he gets sick of your sugar addiction and Ruby's plans for world domination. Then I'll be here to show him a really good time.”
“In your dreams, B!” Gabriel yelled at Balthazar, whose only reply was to slam his door shut. The raised voices seemed to catch the attention of the newcomer, but he quickly averted his eyes when Gabriel caught him staring. And was that a blush on those smoothly shaven cheeks? Even with the sideburns, which frankly would look more at home in the times where the floor plan was new, the look was endlessly endearing. And hot. Gabriel had such a thing for the tall ones, but the youth and shyness was totally a bonus.
Gabriel spent a brief moment debating whether he was actually too old to be going for the guy, but then he remembered that it was either him or Ruby. Balthazar would at least make sure the guy knew that it was just sex, but Ruby liked to mess with emotions and oh boy, this kid looked like the type she would gobble up and spit out in quivering chunks once she was done with him. Gabriel liked Ruby, because she was a good friend, and part of being her friend meant accepting that she was horrible in relationships.
Not that Gabriel had the best track record either, but at least he always tried to do right by the people he was with, no matter what exactly was on the table. For the moment, all Gabriel knew for sure was the he wanted to get much closer to the newcomer and his life had taught him that avoiding risk taking was pointless. So he smoothed back his hair, hitched on his best confident smile and strode over to the object of his attention.
“Hi there. Can I help you?”
The guy jumped and turned around to face him. Gabriel guessed that the kid had tried to politely ignore the commotion earlier by pretending to be really interested in the damn floor plan. Apparently a little too well, since he looked mildly shell shocked when Gabriel spoke.
Not sure if this will go anywhere or not, but it's what I've had open for a while. I think it's laughing at me.
