Having His Cake


“Where did you get that?” Mycroft asks, trying not to drool.

Can’t remember the last time a piece of cake looked so tempting.

“Watson dropped it off. Apparently it’s his birthday,” Lestrade says.

Of course it is. Mycroft had forgotten. Probably distracted. He’s been distracted quite a lot recently, which really won’t do. It’s hardly surprising; but he’s not sure his superiors would understand if he told them about it. Ever since I became intimate with DI Lestrade I have been unable to give my full attention to my work wasn’t going to be an acceptable explanation. Maybe if he showed them a picture of Lestrade. A picture of Lestrade naked? Mycroft groans.

“Didn’t realize you felt that strongly about chocolate fudge cake,” Lestrade says teasingly.

Mycroft almost says It’s not about that, but he’s getting better at knowing when Lestrade’s just pretending to get the wrong end of the stick. “Nice of John to give you a piece,” he says, licking his lips and trying to remind himself of all the reasons he shouldn’t be interested.

“I think it’s for both of us,” Lestrade says. “He says Sherlock bought it for him.”

That is quite surprising. Sherlock’s never shown much concern for other people’s birthdays, while of course sulking prodigiously if anyone forgets his.

“Looks like your brother’s got it bad this time,” Lestrade says, grinning.

“He’s not the only one,” Mycroft says, amazed at his own daring.

“You think Watson’s nuts about him too?” Lestrade asks.

“I meant me,” Mycroft says, blushing furiously; then he sees Lestrade’s expression. “Oh, you’re doing it again, you wretch. Honestly, I – Mmf.

It is, of course, impossible to talk coherently when someone insists on pushing his fingers into your mouth. The additional distraction of chocolate fudge icing and cake crumbs on those fingers is more than anyone could be expected to cope with.

Mycroft licks and sucks greedily at Lestrade’s fingers till Lestrade is groaning and pressing hard against him.

“Let’s go to bed,” Lestrade says, pushing his other hand between Mycroft’s thighs. “I’ll bring the cake so you can have that too.”

Mycroft usually disapproves of eating in bed. Messy. Particularly if it’s something that leaves crumbs. The whipped cream was – oh good gracious, just thinking about the whipped cream does the most extraordinary things to him. Licking whipped cream off Lestrade. Having whipped cream licked off him by Lestrade. He hadn’t been able to look at a trifle without blushing for weeks, never mind a cream doughnut. Shouldn’t have been looking at them at all, of course: still dieting.

But he’s taking much more exercise now. Of the sort he wanted. Involving DI Lestrade. And the more energetic it is, the better it seems to be for the waistline. Mycroft’s in better shape than he’s been for years, and Lestrade keeps saying he thought he was a nice shape to start with, which still surprises Mycroft but makes him very happy. So maybe one slice of John Watson’s birthday cake, half a slice really, wouldn’t be the end of the world.

Lestrade swipes another fingerful of chocolate fudge icing across Mycroft’s lips and then kisses him, slipping his tongue into Mycroft’s mouth. Mycroft moans with pleasure, swallowing the melting sweetness and caressing Lestrade’s tongue with his own.

“Mm,” Lestrade says appreciatively. “Very nice. I bet that would taste good on other bits of you as well.”

“Or you,” Mycroft says, salivating. Running his tongue over Lestrade’s body is his idea of heaven, with or without chocolate fudge icing.

“Right,” Lestrade says, sounding surprised but pleased. “Fine by me. We can take it in turns if you like.” He pulls Mycroft close and kisses him again till he’s almost fainting with delight.

“You’ll be the undoing of me,” Mycroft moans, not sure if he’s complaining or boasting.

“Well, you know what they say,” Lestrade says, grinning and pushing him gently but inexorably towards the bedroom. “It’s a dirty job but somebody’s got to do it.”

It may be John Watson’s cake, but it feels like Mycroft’s birthday too. Chocolate fudge cake and sex with DI Lestrade? On second thoughts, Mycroft concludes dizzily, make that several birthdays rolled into one.

Mycroft has superiors? I am not sure whether to be relieved or alarmed. They must be very superior. Even so, I am sure they would recognise the distraction posed by DI Lestrade with chocolate fudge icing.

yes, I'm not sure who they are either. but I thought there was probably someone between him and the Queen... I may be wrong.

The Queen may be graciously pleased that Mycroft has found someone worth being distracted by.

that's a pretty thought. he might still be shy about telling her, I suppose.

and he should know that, shouldn't he? oh dear, Lestrade really is having a distracting effect on him...

or possibly on me.

I always imagined his superiors included only the Queen and Arthur Kirkland.

Oh. My. I am SO hungry for chocolate cake and whipped cream now. With appropriate accompaniment, of course.

This was delightful! Thoroughly enjoyed!

Of course Mycroft has superiors.

They primarily consist of his mum & aunt (the one who was so helpful designing the software that smoothed out the CCTV management glitches), but have now been expanded to include DI Lestrade.

At least when it comes to managing his exercise regimen.....

...and who wouldn't want DI Lestrade in charge of that?

thank you very much!

I see that the whipped cream kink has lived on - LIKE!
Gosh, Lestrade you devil, teasing Mycroft like that! It's too unbearably adorable.
(I haven't friended you?? Must rectify pronto.)

And well, a strong supporter of chocolate cake! BTW, yes, you ARE supposed to cheat on your diet from time to time.

Lovely!

I always love a distracted Mycroft. Particularly love these Mycroft getting better at Lestrade having him on and then missing it two paragraphs later and then getting it again.

And the throwaway line about Sherlock not caring about other peoples birthdays but being really put out if somebody missed his. That felt really very real for a character who isn't even in this story... so nice job there!

All together really nice!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Can't be too coherent now. Am thinking of cake, fingers, and Lestrade, so . . . That's full capacity for my little brain. Thank you for yummy fic! I am on the same wavelength as kalypso on this, so when you said superiors, I immediately imagined My showing the Queen a photo of naked Lestrade. A very high pitched squeal of delight and maybe a swoon would be the reaction, I think. And she would drop her purse . . . And her hat would fall off.

*laughing out loud at your comment*

I couldn't quite let myself write that, even if the idea flitted through my mind. not sure HM ever swoons, but I feel that she might appreciate L's charms. I know there are still some people who don't (baffling though that is).

and thank you! very glad you liked this.

I think she would appraise the photo, thoughtfully, and then say "He looks like a very nice young man."
fengirl88
Jan. 16th, 2011 06:19 pm (UTC)
yes! this sounds just right to me.

(you're not secretly HM in disguise, are you? but I suppose you couldn't say, if you were...)

Can I just ask... twice in two days I've seen "purse" where I would have expected "handbag". Is this an American thing, or a general shift I haven't caught up with yet? For me, "handbag" is a bag with a longish strap - I sling mine over my shoulder, I think the Queen tends to carry it on her arm - which contains my purse (small bag containing cash) and about a hundred other small items (it's always too heavy, but I know if I take anything out that's the item I will need the following day).

Jan. 17th, 2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
don't know about other references, but definitely, on my end it's just an American thing. I all all girl-carried holders of things purses. Handbag feels a bit old-fashioned-- but is still often used--just not by me.
kalypso_v
Jan. 18th, 2011 01:48 am (UTC)
So what do you call the small holder of cash that's usually carried inside it?
2ndskin
Jan. 18th, 2011 02:29 am (UTC)
a wallet if it holds paper money and cards and coins or a "change purse" if just coins but on thinking more about it I think there are regional differences because my mother, who was from the South, would say "pocketbook" and I grew up mostly in the Midwest and would always say "purse" and I do know women from the Northeast who would say "handbag." I think a store clerk at a nice department store would direct you to the handbags. But I also think you'd overhear the phrase "honey, please hold my purse" much much more often than "please hold my handbag" whew!!! But what do I know? I usually carry a satchel!!! *g*

This is so incredibly sweet -- and not just because of that slice of chocolate fudge cake! :-) I wonder if John dropped off a slice of birthday cake as a way of letting both Mycroft and Lestrade know that Sherlock is becoming a better person and can be generous when he wants to. Of course, I'm sure it was more about wanting to include Mycroft and Lestrade in the celebration than anything else.

I love the idea of Mycroft being continually distracted by thoughts of Lestrade -- not that Lestrade makes the situation any easier! Hmm...if I had chocolate fudge cake and Lestrade, I think it would be the undoing of me too! *g*

omg someone is awake! I am slowly loosing my mind to insommnia. And thinking about writing a Mycroft/Lestrade prompt I saw on the shkmeme today- Lestrade in a collar. Think it could still be IC? *tempts you into coming on gmail*

Uh, is your icon moving? No wait, no it's just the contrast of red on black. Yeah I enjoyed that fic, but it felt OOC to me. *pouts*

Adore Mycroft's voice here, and Lestrade's gentle humor and groundedness. Very nice. Beautifully written and layered with such fabulous emotion (and sensuality). GAH.
