But when I got to work this morning, the first line of this little not-quite-a-drabble popped into my head and I started writing. I want to do more with this, but here's my 90 word morning's inspiration:
“Don’t take the piss with me. You’ve got to be shagging him.”
John smiled into his pint.
“So everyone says,” he replied, eyes twinkling.
“So you’re…” Lestrade floundered, his face asking what he seemed unable to vocalize.
“Happy?” John asked pointedly, swallowing down his pint and signaling for another.
“Bloody Hell,” Lestrade muttered.
John took pity on Lestrade then.
“Shagging. No.” John said, adding, “Is there a word for people who are more than mates, and less than lovers?”
“Hell if I know.”
“Yeah. That works” and laughed.
