It was nine o'clock when John slipped through the apartment door and went looking for Matt. The eerie glow down the hallway told him Matt was in the spare room, probably in the middle of some video game or other.
"Thought you had to work late," Matt said when John stepped up behind him.
"I got time off for good behavior."
Matt laughed. "You? You're never good."
"For awesome behavior, then."
Matt paused his game and turned to look at John thoughtfully. "Now that I believe. Have you had dinner?"
"Already ate—Chinese takeout at the precinct."
"That sounds way better than the soup-in-a-can I had." Matt looked disappointed for a second, and then brightened. "Though at least I wasn't stuck at an office."
John moved closer, leaning in casually and giving Matt that special sideways smile. "So, how in love with that game are you right now?" he asked softly.
"Not at all," Matt said hastily, hitting the power button on the monitor and standing up. "Got something better in mind?"
John pulled Matt up against him and kissed him with a trace of wickedness and promise, then took his hand and pulled him toward the bedroom.
"Kid, I'm going to show you the kind of excitement that'll make your video game look like a typing lesson..."
