Being on a business trip with Tom, and he stays late at a meeting. You slowly get bored of waiting for him to come back so you go down to the hotel bar where you meet Jeffrey, who charms his way into buying you a drink.

“Argh shit!” You
heard James yell from the kitchen. Quickly you got up from your chair in the
garden, and ran in to see him standing before a pile of pots, all fallen on the
floor. You smiled at him, knowing that he was troubling with begin back from
war. Even if it wasn’t recently he had come back. You sat down on the floor
next to him.
Imagine taking Tom to a karaoke bar for his birthday. You rented the whole place out for a private party with just your and Tom’s closest friends, and even planned a special surprise for the birthday boy. They roll out a giant cake, and when everyone starts singing “Happy Birthday,” he looks around for you to share in the moment - that’s when you pop out of the cake wearing his favorite sexy red dress. After you make sure Tom has a front-row seat, you kick off a night of uninhibited celebration by performing Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” for the man you love.
“Iron Lady” - [Jeremy Irons / Tom Hiddleston - Multi-chapter].
Summary: Widower Jeremy, falls for and marries his son’s friend despite tripling her age. And just a few years later, his health problems and the return of his best friend, Tom, to London, make him doubt his marriage and wonder if his wife would be better off with a younger man like his friend.
“It’s a great offer!” Tom exclaimed, “Of
course I’d be out of London for god knows how long…”
He was comfortably
lying on his couch with his hands behind his head, while Jeremy sat on a chair
with his feet up on the desk, and smoked a pipe. The two tired men held a
conversation while the satisfaction of a good game of golf wore off, and they
relaxed in front of the fire and its crackling sound.
“But what’s stopping me, right?” Tom asked.
He glanced at
Jeremy when he didn’t answer, and chuckled.
“Right”, he said absentmindedly.
“You’re miles away”.
“I’m thinking about a big bloody engagement ring”.
“Oh hell!” Tom exclaimed with a playful grin.
and it was the most honest sound Tom had heard in a while, but it didn’t stop
him from talking.
“So you’re serious about her. But isn’t it too much
“Not when you’re in love, my friend”.
Jeremy spoke about her, his happiness seemed tangible. It even made him look years
younger, Tom could see it. He wondered if he’d ever feel that; if he’d ever
understand love and be as lucky as his older friend who would soon be going for
marriage number two. His version of the feeling seemed to be more than enough. Jeremy
sat up straight and reached for his shoes with a soft grunt that interrupted Tom’s
train of thought.
“I think it’s a wonderful opportunity, Tom. You should
take it”, he said putting
them on before looking straight into his eyes, “Life’s too short”.
The memory and
Jeremy’s words reverberated in Tom’s mind while he staredout the window of his home, witnessing the thunderstorm which
seemed to melancholically harmonize with the hole he felt in his chest.
A lit cigarette
dangled from Mrs.Irons’ lips, and it trembled mimicking her shaky hands as she
paced back and forth in the darkness of Jeremy’s studio.

Hours had passed as Thomas paced the length of the small office in one of his discreet warehouses. No one spoke, the only sound the Russian’s screams as O’Malley worked him over, doing everything he could to find out Amanda’s location. William winced with each scream, his eyes flickering to the time with each scream. The longer this took, the longer this dragged on, the better the chance something could happen to Amanda. They’d know their man was missing by now. William couldn’t even stomach what more they could do to her.
“This is taking too long,” William murmured.
Thomas tossed him a dark look. “It’ll take as long as it needs to. We need that location.”
