Die Hard 4 Slash Drabble: "Radiant Heat" (PG)  
Title: Radiant Heat
Fandom: Die Hard 4
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: John/Matt or John, Matt (Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: John is a terrible patient.
Author's Notes: for the "Fever" prompt at sexy_right LFODH Anniversary Challenge.


John's a terrible patient (so what else is new?), but Matt's just as stubborn. He's also sole arbiter of whether John's well enough to go back to work (current assessment: Hell no).

"I'll take aspirin, I swear." John's glassy-eyed promises mean nothing. Yesterday, he claimed to be Chinese.

Matt runs a damp cloth over John's face. "Give it time."

John sighs. "Keep the place safe?" he mumbles.

"Sure thing," Matt says. It and you.

He'll hang on until John's lucid and burning solely from the intensity that defines him.

After that, he'll make sure things between them really heat up.

:D Glad you liked it. And doesn't that seem exactly how Matt would think of it, given John's current situation?

Which is why John is not reliable enough to make that decision. ;)
