A/N: double-drabble which originated in challenging my sister to write a shepford DD using the words pristine, effulgent and succinct
Sheppard pulled Ford into a corridor. "We don't have much time, so I'll be as succinct as possible."
Ford looked at him expectantly, and Sheppard was unable to turn his eyes away from the effulgent look in Ford's eyes. "Well, that's pretty succinct," Ford said with a smirk.
"Thank you." Sheppard shook his head. "There's one thing you need to know, Aiden." He closed his eyes. "I love you. I've been in love with you ever since we met in the SGC." His hands where shaking when he lifted them to touch Ford's arms. "I'm terrified that I'm going to lose you before I even had the chance to be with you."
He opened his eyes, only to see a single tear running down Ford's cheek. "John..." Ford didn't even hesitate before he pulled Sheppard into the most perfect and most pristine kiss Sheppard had ever experienced. It was everything he had hoped for, and his heart ached at the thought that it might be their first and only kiss. "I love you, too, John. I pray to God that we'll make it. There's so much--"
Sheppard smiled and put his fingers on Ford's lips. "I know. Let's go."
Take care & happy reading!
luv & hugs
