Fic: Replacement (#34 Coffee)  
Title: Replacement
Prompt: #34 Coffee
Author: isabeau
Rating: G
Characters/Pairings: Peter and Neal, gen
Word count: 200
Warnings/Spoilers: Minor spoilers for 2x10 (Burke's Seven)
Summary: Peter loses something; Neal replaces it. Sort of.
Notes: I know it's not this week's prompt; but these came across my friends list (via musthavecute) and I simply could not resist. Neither, apparently, could Neal.


"So, Peter."

"Neal," Peter said cautiously. Neal was looking far too smug for his liking - and was holding something behind his back.

"Never got your coffee mug back, huh?"

Peter narrowed his eyes. That was Neal's asking-a-question-he-goddamn-well-knew-the-answer-to voice. "Diana got me a new one." He nodded at the navy cup. Sure, it wasn't anything special, but he didn't need special. Not for FBI coffee, anyway.

"Well... I got you a replacement too."

He handed the something to Peter. White ceramic mug. Certainly not worth the expression on Neal's face, pure mischief trying to look innocent.

And then Peter turned it around to look at the other side and flinched. "No. Just... No."

"Aw, c'mon." Neal pleaded. "It's so you!"

"No," Peter said, in his best bad-dog voice, which Satchmo at least obeyed... well, some of the time, at least.

Neal spread his hands, surrender without yielding. "How about a compromise: you take that home to Elizabeth, and let /her/ decide."

Peter looked down at the mug, and at the black mustache painted on it, and didn't need to take it home to know what El's reaction would be.

"I'm doomed."

Poor Peter. He can't fight Neal and El.

Ha! That was awesome. And so very very Neal. Thanks for the laugh!
