Summary: The one where Steve pines for three years and Danny falls slowly and inexorably into love.
I was seriously expecting Steve to be at the door holding the pizza box a little bashfully, because he realizes only after he pays the pizza guy and knocks on the door that Danny probably wants some time alone with Grace without crazy armed men getting in the way. But Danny just rolls his eyes and manhandles Steve inside and Grace is beaming at him and she giggles when Steve teases Danny about the lack of pineapple and Danny retaliates by shoving a half burnt marshmallow in his mouth.
When Gracie’s down for the count, snuggled in her Princess sleeping bag, Steve quietly clears away the trash as Danny puts the leftover pizza in the fridge. And maybe he’s stalling a little trying to figure out a way to stay longer when Danny tugs on his his elbow and says, “C’mere,” all sleepy-eyed and content. Steve goes because it’s Danny, even though he doesn’t understand what’s going on until Danny’s mouth is on his, sticky-sweet from marshmallows.
“I may have to battle Lucy for your affections, you know,” he murmurs. “She’s a pretty stand up kid, could be tough.”
Steve’s hands are too tight on Danny’s hips, but he can’t stop himself from wanting to hold on. Not when he’s got Danny flush against his body and Danny’s taste in his mouth. He takes a shuddering breath, mouth ghosting along the line of Danny’s jaw as he pulls back enough to meet Danny’s eyes. “I’ve got it on pretty good authority,” Steve says with the utmost sincerity, “that you can do anything.”
