At some point, Jos found himself slouched in a chair in the medbay, being slapped awake none to gently by a rather harried-looking Aki. His shoulder throbbed.

"Well?" she drawled, "What did your Warboy do to you this time?"

"Nothing to do with him; it was dislocated," was the only reply he gave, but the exasperated look in her dark eyes told him that she knew the rest of the story. Hadn't he come to her every time some idiots (always plural -- he could handle solos on his own) with Centralist ideas knocked him around?

"You fucking popped it back in yourself?"

He shrugged lopsidedly, and she sighed in disgust, already wrapping his shoulder.

When she had finished, Jos frowned and flexed his arm cautiously. "He's not my anything," he muttered, more interested in seeing how far he could push it before it hurt too much. Aki slapped his head again.

"Give it a rest for a few days," she told him. And then, "You'd better watch yourself, Musey. I don't want your Warboy thinking you keep getting hurt just so you can come and see me."

Her tone hit a nerve, made Jos go blank automatically, too close to things he was never prepared to remember. "I'm sure Captain S'tlian has more important concerns." It was a mistake to show his unease, he knew it even before he saw Aki's intrigued look. He started to get up, hoping to escape her curiosity, but she stood in his way.

"Hey, hey. I'm not done. Sit back down. I thought you guys were best buddies."

She smiled her sweetest smile, but Jos pushed past her as tactfully as he could. Aki could only let him go with ill grace.

He was almost out the door when her voice hit him in the back of the head. "I've seen the way you watch him, Musey. You're his man."

I am always so happy to find any fic for this fandom, especially when it's good. And this is adorable--the voices are so perfect. And that last line just made my heart swell with all the feelings. <333
