Notes Thanks to the dear mods who let me post this even though I wasn’t signed up. Was…oh, you all know where I was during the sign-up and that I only came back Monday night. *grins*
“Are you sure there’s cookies, Gwaine?”
“But this is creepy! Can’t we switch on the lights?”
“Shut up, Percy! If we turn on the lights, mam will see us.”
“And we won’t get cookies.”
“Shhhhhht! Be quiet! Or I’ll eat the cookies all by myself.”
Gwaine knew that his friend was pouting but couldn’t deal with that now. His feet started getting cold as he carefully made his way towards the kitchen door. He stopped when he saw that the lights were on in the kitchen and Percy bumped into him.
“Careful, you big klutz!”
On tiptoes they snuck closer to the kitchen. They hadn’t battled the dark corridor with beating hearts to let it go now.
“Great, Percy, now she will have heard us!”
Just as the taller boy reached for the doorknob, the door swung open to the inside.
Asked later, Gwaine would right out deny that he squeaked like a little pig.
“Boys! What are you doing out here in the cold?”
Percy just looked up at Mrs. Noble like a deer caught in the headlights.
“We just wanted…”
“How does milk and cookies sound? I’ll bring you some, if you go back to bed now. You’ll only catch a cold.”
Beaming and giggling, the boys ran back to Gwaine’s room and snuggled under the warm blanket.
Their quest for a late treat had been successful!
