A First Kiss

Work Text:

Another day, another file to be looked over. A stack of Manila folders sat on either side of your desk. A pile for unread files to your right, which was finally smaller than the pile of read files to your left.

You sipped your coffee, the hunched man beside you humming... almost mumbling under his breath. You lift your eyes away from the small printed font, turning your gaze to find L staring at you.

“Having an epiphany?” You quip, about to turn back to your files when he spoke.

“An epiphany? Perhaps...” he looked to the ceiling, his thumb rubbing his lower lip. You narrowed your eyes; he was thinking... scheming. Using the desk as leverage, he pulled his office chair close to you, his knees intruding into your space.

“I recognize we haven’t been a conventional couple,” He spoke once more, stuffing a chocolate dipped macaron into his mouth “, I would like to kiss you.”

You didn’t speak. You couldn’t speak. The most physical affection you had shared in the month you’ve been together was holding hands. What could have-

Your train of thought was broken when his slender hands came to either side of your face. He moved towards you, and while you wanted to stop and question his sudden interest in kissing, you couldn’t help but close your eyes and lean in.

It started too gently, his lips merely ghosting against yours, but it made your heart race anyway. Then, as quick as it had started, it was over. Your eyes fluttered open, L a mere few inches from your face, analyzing what he had just experienced. You took a deep breath... you’d be damned if that little act hadn’t lit a fire inside of you.

“I find this,” he paused (and you swore, it was the only time you ever saw him struggle for a word) “, pleasing. We should conduct some more tests after dinner.”

You nodded, dreamily, knowing you could teach him a few tricks and more.
