Dec 20, James Bond, James/Q, At The Airport
Title: At The Airport
Fandom: James Bond
Waiting for his plane to be announced, James' eye was drawn to a little girl. Brown hair, blue eyes; full of energy and wearing enough winter clothes to stock a store, including some Christmas mittens. Her mother was keeping a sharp eye on her, but for her short range, the little girl was making friends with everyone. She smiled and talked politely, asking about plans and families and dinner. Even those who were hated the season were charmed and answered warmly.
His phone chimed. With a frown, he opened it.
I see where your eye has wandered. Should I be worried?
James raised an eyebrow, confused. This last mission hadn't been a honey pot, just a simple retrieval.
I meant the little girl. Do you want children, James?
James scoffed and rolled his eyes.
No. It's only that she's so happy. Look at her. Everyone here is upset with the delays or traveling at this time of year. Except her. It's still an adventure.
His phone was quiet for a moment.
Is that what you'd like? An adventure at Christmas? Or just to be happy?
James looked at the little girl again.
It's just some bit of unexpected Christmas beauty is all, Q. It's cheering.
He smiled when he received the next text.
Q, smiling with their Christmas tree in their flat.
I'll be home, soon.
