Title: Slipping and Sliding
Summary: Michael buys some new sheets with unexpected consequences.
A/N: Written for the prompt 'Purple' for my fanfic100 table. Inspired by an idea from schnute23. Unbeta'd so mistakes are all mine.
“Michael where are you?” Ben called walking in the front door.
“Up here.” Michael’s voice floated down the stairs. Ben dropped his briefcase by the table and headed upstairs and into their bedroom.
Michael was standing next to their bed pulling parcels from a large bag. He turned when he saw his husband in the door way.
“I went shopping!” He said happily.
“So I see.” Ben replied, walking over and dropping a kiss on Michael’s upturned face.
“Bed, Bath and Beyond had a sale and I knew we needed new sheets so I stopped in on the way home.” Michael said, finally finding what he was looking for in the bag. “How do you like these?”
Michael held the sheets in front of Ben, watching him carefully.
“They’re very…….purple!” Ben said, reaching out and running his fingers over the fabric. “And very slippery!”
“You don’t like them!” Michael pouted.
“I never said that.” Ben replied, trying not to laugh at the look on Michael’s face.
“I just thought they would brighten up the room.” Michael said, opening them out and laying them on top of the bed.
“They’ll certainly do that!” Ben replied, letting out a loud ‘ouch’ as Michael elbowed him in his side.
“I’ll give them to Ma then.” Michael fumed. “At least I know she’ll appreciate them.”
Ben was still having trouble stifling his laughter and reached out for his husband pulling him into his arms.
“Perhaps they’ll look better when they’re on the bed.” He suggested and saw a smile twitch at Michael’s lips.
“You think?” Michael said hopefully.
“Why don’t we find out?” Ben suggested and was rewarded with a kiss from Michael.
They stripped the bed together, before re-making it with the new sheets then stood back looking at the result.
“I like them!” Michael declared, casing a sideways look at his husband. Ben seemed to be considering them before he replied.
“I’m still not sure.” He answered and noticed the downcast look on Michael’s face. “I think we need to try them out.”
Michael’s eyes met Ben’s and a wide smile crossed his face.
“I think that’s an excellent idea.” He replied, as he slowly unbuttoned Ben’s shirt and pulled it off him before unzipping his jeans. Ben reached down, pulling his shoes off and let his jeans drop to the floor.
“You look pleased to see me!” Michael said, his eyes not moving from the bulge in Ben’s briefs as he quickly removed his own clothes.
He let out a squeal as Ben picked him up and dropped him onto the bed. He scrambled under the covers, watching as Ben finally removed his briefs, his rock hard cock was standing to attention and Michael licked his lips in anticipation of what was to come.
Ben climbed in next to Michael; deciding the cool stain felt good against his body.
He reached for his husband and pushed him onto his back and Michael let out a stifled laugh as he felt himself sliding down the bed.
“Maybe they are a bit slippery!” He spluttered, grabbing hold of Ben so he could pull himself up the bed again. Ben managed to keep a straight face as he lifted Michael’s arms and stretched them above his head. Michael finally realized what Ben was doing and wrapped his fingers around the headboard slats.
Ben lent in and began to kiss and lick slowly down his husband’s body, stopping to nibble gently at his nipples, leaving them dark and hard by the time he had finished his ministrations. Michael let out a contented sigh as Ben’s tongue flicked over the head of his cock and he dug his heels into the bed as Ben took him into his mouth but his feet kept losing their grip on the sheets and his arms were starting to ache.
“Ben…..that feels wonderful but…..” Michael stammered out, flexing his fingers, trying to get some feeling back into them but he lost his grip and felt himself sliding down the bed again, as his cock slid out of Ben’s mouth.
“You ok baby?” Ben asked as he knelt in front of his lover but found his knees slipping from underneath him and he tried to save himself from dropping down on top of Michael but his hands slipped on the sheeting and Michael groaned as Ben’s full weight landed on him.
“Michael you know I love you but from now on I will go shopping for new sheets ok?” Ben stated as he rolled off his husband and just managed to grab the covers before landing on the floor.
Michael looked at Ben, trying hard but not succeeding at hiding his laughter as he watched Ben pull himself back onto the bed and lie next to him.
“Perhaps we could give them to Ma!” He said and they both burst out laughing at the vision of Debbie and Carl slipping and sliding around and doing things they didn’t even want to imagine, on their new purple sheets.
