As far as cake-baking attempts go, Danny's not the master. Sure, he can do a simple birthday cake, but Steve's? No, he'd needed the big guns for that, which is why he'd showed up to work on one of his days off. The result is worth it -- it's so worth it. He's got a grenade cake, made of chocolate and buttercreme wrapped up. It's only a week into the marriage, but Danny feels like not getting the right gift is pretty much a great way of starting off a marriage in a difficult way.

When he gets back, he makes sure it's tucked away in the ice box. When that's done, he strips down to his shorts and grabs his surfboard, waiting outside for Steve to get back. A surf, a swim, and a cake -- he figures if that's not what Steve wants (outside of some breakfast), then he's just out of luck.

I guess it's lucky that he's just hanging out, standing in the yard with a surfboard tucked under one arm. Means I didn't head over here, on my way down to the beach, for nothing.

"Hey, man," I say with a crooked grin, making a point of giving him a once-over.

Steve's not really in the habit of drawing much attention to his birthday. In the past, there'd be no telling whether or not he'd even be around to celebrate it, so he'd usually settle for the yearly call from Mary - when she remembered - and leave it at that. He knows Danny's fully aware of when the day is, but he's not anticipating some big party, especially since they just got done having the wedding.

He's coming back from his run with every intention of swimming, maybe surfing - anything that will get the sweat off, mostly - and he spots Danny and Neil before he rounds the path down to the hut, already breaking into a slow smile. "You looking to head out there?" he asks, motioning from Danny to the board, catching his breath with a mild furrow of his brow. "Didn't know you surfed, Neil."

"Hey, assholes, if you're not gonna share, keep that shit in the bedroom," I say with a smirk, full of shit, even though there is a part of me that's distantly jealous. Not of either one of them in particular. Seeing them together has a way of reminding me of what I don't have anymore.

Looking to Steve, I say, "Yeah, man. I surf. Wasn't a whole fuckin' lot else to do, 'round here, before I ended up with the bar."

He scrubs a hand over his face, leaning down to return the kiss with a small smile against Danny's mouth, fingers briefly brushing against his hip before Danny pulls back.

"Hey, see how far you get without me to stop you from dropping in on someone else's wave," he replies, tweaking Danny's hip gently before turning to Neil. "Thinking about getting into the board-making business. We don't have nearly enough of them down here, and wooden ones'll serve."

A slow grin stretching my face, I say to Steve, "Is it your birthday? I didn't know that." There's a lot I don't know about the guy, so it's not like anybody expected me to turn up with a fuckin' present.

Poking Danny back, I mutter, "You're not wearing a shirt."
newkindofcop: (slow smile.)

"Rules have been in place forever, Danno. It's not my fault," Steve counters, shrugging both shoulders. Still, his expression quickly shifts into a small smile as he leans in, resting a hand between Danny's shoulderblades.

"You made me a cake?" he asks, before adding: "Yeah, it is. Kind of got so wrapped up in the earlier planning that it almost slipped my mind, too."

"Long as I'm not encroachin' on some kinda... private celebration," I say, tongue peeking out between my teeth, biting back a grin at the way they look at each other. It'd be kind of disgusting if it weren't so cute.
newkindofcop: (amused.)

"Well, I figured your job with Shari had to be paying off sooner or later," Steve answers, giving Danny a gentle nudge before he starts heading toward the hut, motioning for Neil to follow and then bending down to pet the puppy that bounds out to greet them.

"Tell you what. You can cut me the biggest slice."

They head inside and I have this moment of wondering what the fuck I'm getting myself into. I realize, within about five seconds, that I've hardly spent any time with the two of them, together. They've got this rhythm about them, and it'd be easy to feel like a third wheel.

But they're beckoning me to follow, so I do, pausing just long enough to pet the dog on the head, then choking out a laugh as I watch Danny suck icing off his finger.

"Danny, you're such a fuckin' mom, there's no way you're not the wife around here."
newkindofcop: (faintly.)

[personal profile] newkindofcop 2012-03-21 06:20 pm (UTC)(link)
"Who's making any jokes? I'm not making any jokes," Steve insists, glancing down at the giant hand grenade cake with nothing short of amusement as Danny cuts off a piece from the top, serving it on a plate and handing it over to him. His smile briefly disappears in the wake of a blissful look when he licks some extra icing off the prongs of his fork, swaying happily.

"Buttercream," he murmurs, almost humming. "My favorite." He leans in, presses a kiss to Danny's temple and then cuts a section off his piece, shoveling it all in on one bite. "S'good," he manages, chewing slowly.

I find myself just watching them. Watching the way they are with each other. To the point that I don't even hear the question that's asked of me.

"What? Oh, man. Whatever. Doesn't matter," I shrug, grinning crookedly at that stupid smile on Danny's face.
newkindofcop: (fondness.)

[personal profile] newkindofcop 2012-03-21 09:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Steve's barely got the first bite swallowed before he's already sticking another forkful in his mouth, reaching up with his thumb to swipe a little extra icing off the corner of his mouth from where it didn't quite make it in.

"Gonna have 'nother piece," he declares, holding the plate up high and close to his face so he doesn't accidentally spill.
little_moons: (Tease)

[personal profile] little_moons 2012-03-22 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
"You say that like it's a bad thing," I laugh, taking my piece from him and completely forgoing the fork. Instead, I scoop up some icing on my finger, grinning at them both as I lick it away.
newkindofcop: (glance.)

[personal profile] newkindofcop 2012-03-22 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
"Whuh?" Steve glances over, swallowing visibly before his tongue darts out to catch some stray icing at the corner of his mouth.

"It's a compliment, Danny," he insists.

[personal profile] little_moons 2012-03-22 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
"Shut the fuck up, Danny. Since when the fuck does anybody gotta mind their fuckin' manners 'round me?" I laugh, rolling my eyes and then giving Steve a look.

"What thing?"

[personal profile] newkindofcop 2012-03-22 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
Steve draws his lip into his mouth afterward, looking only minorly hurt by the accusation. But he turns on Danny with a similar look, one eyebrow rising the same way the corner of his mouth does.

"Yeah, Danny. What thing?"
little_moons: (Mischievous)

[personal profile] little_moons 2012-03-22 02:43 am (UTC)(link)
"I dunno, man. Lemme check my fuckin' calendar," I say, trying to look innocent as I can, but failing pretty fucking spectacularly.

"Did you invite me in here to fuck both of you? On Steve's birthday? Danny, that's adorable," I say, and I'm fucking with him now, poking fun at him, but that doesn't make the idea of it any less appealing.
