Since Trent didn't get any sleep, he had to slug down a bunch of coffee in order to function in the morning. As he was downing his second cup, Jimmy let out a sigh, "You should just let me dive."
"The last time I did that, we almost ended up in a ditch."
Jimmy's face became all innocence and persecution. "I told you that wasn't my fault. That duck just jumped in front of the car."
"Ducks fly, they don't jump."
"Okay, fine. He flew in front of the car. I barely managed to avoid hitting him."
Trent took another sip of coffee. "Yeah, because ducks are always dodging in front of moving vehicles. Those damn buggers."
Jimmy rolled his eyes. "You know sarcasm is not your friend. Besides, I think that duck was suicidal."
"Okay, let me get this straight. You're saying that we almost died because of an emo duck who just couldn't take the cruel world anymore?"
"Sure! I'll bet it happens all the time."
Trent smiled. "Well, then I better call the Animal Planet and alert them of this disturbing new trend."
Jimmy laughed, the sound warming Trent from the inside out.
"You better. They'll probably want to do a documentary about it."
Shaking his head, Trent pulled into a gas station.
"Why are we stopping here?" Jimmy wrinkled his nose.
Not that Trent blamed him. The place was a dive. It looked as if it hadn't been cleaned since the Kennedy administration, and even then, only a half ass job had been done.
"I have to use the bathroom," Trent announced as he parked the car and turned it off.
Jimmy pressed his lips together. "I warned you not to drink all that coffee."
"Yeah, just make sure you sit tight, and don't get into any trouble. I'll be right back."
Trent got out and made his way to the bathroom. It was one of those kind that had the door on the outside of the building. Nice! Trent knew before he even walked in that it would be just as dirty as he suspected.
He walked in, intent on getting his business done so he could leave. While the smell wasn't too bad, the flood was grimy and he was willing to bet that it was less than sanitary.
When the door didn't thud shut behind him, he turned in confusion. When he saw Jimmy standing there, Trent grew confused and a little exasperated. "I thought I told you to wait in the car."
Jimmy turned around and locked the door. "You did, but there was something I needed to do first."
By way of answer Jimmy crossed the room and shoved Trent against a wall. The move shocked Trent so much that he didn't even put up a fight. That was until he saw Jimmy coming in for a kiss. At the last moment, Trent gathered his wits enough to put a staying hand on Jimmy's chest.
