How to Close a Closer.
Drabble Challenge - Prompt 149 - “I just need ten minutes.” Filled for @novemberhush Thank you for helping me unblock my fairy floss filled brain, I hope you like it. :)
Harvey and Mike had been a team now for a year, which was exactly how long both parties had wanted to merge into each other’s hearts and beds. Mike was waiting on Harvey to make the first move because he was the boss; Harvey was waiting on Mike because, as his boss, he couldn’t be seen to be harassing his associate.
There was a sticky note taped to Donna’s desk scribbled with 72 vertical lines. The exact amount of times that Harvey and Mike had been in the office, flirting with each other and Donna had thought this was it; this was the time they finally jump each other. 72 times Donna had thumped her head on the desk in frustration when they chickened out once again. So unfortunately at this juncture, the only merger going on was between Feltham Pharmaceuticals and Portal Distributors.
Harvey was hunched over Donna’s desk, discussing how best to broach the rejection of Louis’s latest insane idea, when Mike strode toward them.
“How’s my merger looking? Better than that skinny tie I hope?” Harvey teased, grasping Mike’s shoulder gently.
