Summary: It was like having her own personal Milk Tray Man.
AN: written for the prompt meme on just_kiss_her, for the prompt ‘It started with a chocolate bar but turned into something more.’ by mercscilla



After that first time, Jess started to find chocolate on her desk every Tuesday. Just something small. Usually something interesting. Never anything with orange.

Every week it was a different flavour. Strawberry chocolate, cherry chocolate, dark, milk, plain, mint, and on one memorable occasion, chilli chocolate.

No matter how early she arrived at work, she never caught him in the act, and the chocolate was always there, waiting for her.

Until the day that it wasn’t.

Jess tried not to be disappointed. He had been chasing dinosaurs for the last sixteen hours almost without break. No one had died, but it had been a close run thing, and it had taken them all night to track down all of the escaped creatures. He had barely made it into the ARC for more than fifteen minutes, before Lester, much to their surprise, had told the field team to go home and get some rest. On a list of priorities, Jess knew her little indulgence really shouldn’t matter that much.

And yet, she couldn’t help wondering if something had changed, if she had done something wrong. If he had become bored with her childish glee over such a silly little thing.

Jess was still somewhat subdued when she finally arrived home that evening, and so lost in her thoughts that she almost didn’t see the item that had been left on the coffee table in the middle of her flat. It was the bright yellow post-it note attached to it that actually caught her attention. Jess looked closer, and smiled.

You didn’t think I’d forgotten, did you? it said in his neat handwriting.

“I do hope you haven’t eaten yet,” Becker drawled from behind her, and Jess turned to see him leaning casually in the bedroom doorway, wearing only a rumpled pair of jeans, and looking like he’d just woken up. Which, she reflected, was entirely possible.

“Why, do you have something in mind?” Jess inquired, trying to hide her confusion.

Becker simply nodded at what she was holding in her hands, a rather smug expression beginning to form.

Jess glanced down and tugged the post-it note off, and her smile got even bigger when she realised she was holding a jar of chocolate body paint.

Chocolate body paint! *cute* Those two just do fluff so naturally. Loved it.

thanks, they are just far too cute, but this week's prompt theme has a lot to answer for!

I think we *all* want Becker to be our own personal Milk Tray Man!

Hee! What a naughty soldier Becker is! :-) Nice one!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 20th, 2011 06:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. And I think Jess is a bad influence on him - he never would have done anything like that in series 3!
mercscilla From: mercscilla Date: August 20th, 2011 05:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
It is a shame we never going to see that on TV. Neither the many chocolate bars he left for her nor this brilliant idea of chocolate body paint. YUM indeed! :D

Love it from the first to the last word. ♥

thanks, glad you enoyed it. I'd had this fic lying around half finished for ages, I'm so glad your prompt made me pick it up and finish it properly.

What a lucky girl Jess is!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 20th, 2011 06:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Indeed she is!

*laughs delightedly*

Nice choice!

thanks, this pairing is far too addictive!

When he first came out of the bedroom, I was so excited! I was like, "YES! ESTABLISHED JECKER!"
Established Jecker is perfection and THIS is why.
This ficlet was adorable and you had them spot on.
I loved how she understood if he forgot, but was still sad that maybe he lost interest.
And the note. Oh, the note. That was so cute!
And then he was all seductive with the body paint.
*sighs happily*
Such a pretty picture in my brain right now xD

Thanks, great comment! I hadn't thought it was going to be established relationship when I started writing it, but suddenly he was there, half dressed in the bedroom doorway, and I thought, 'Oh, right! They're already together! Sneaky buggers!'

And I just can't resist any mental image that involves rumpled, half-dressed Becker.

Awwwwwww, so cute!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 20th, 2011 07:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
They're just too cute and fluffy, I can't stop writing this pairing!

Aw, so cute! I love Becker giving Jess chocolate every week, I can see him being sweet like that.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 20th, 2011 07:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I just loved the way in the episode she had asked Matt for chocolate, but Becker was the one who remembered and brought some. That was the first time we really got the impression he liked her as well.

oh very very nice!
Jess can have the chocolate, I'll have Becker!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 20th, 2011 08:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think you may have a fight on your hands for Becker! To be honest, I want to have both Becker *and* the chocolate!
fredbassett From: fredbassett Date: August 20th, 2011 07:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aw, I loved the sadness of her uncertainty in this.

*g* Naturally I shall ignore the ending!!! I know, I have the very oddest squicks, so sue me!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 20th, 2011 08:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, I did think of you when I wrote this one, and wondered if it needed warning - Not Safe For Fred! I'm sure they were very civilised and the chocolate did not make any contact with any bodily parts :-)
