In spite of what he had told everyone a few minutes ago, Rodney McKay didn´t go to bed. Restlessly, he strolled around outside the walls of the monastery instead. Now and then, while he was looking at the star-strewn sky, he sighed unhappily. Allina is keen on me... that´s unexpected... and... unwanted. I don´t need her affection. There´s only one person for me and that is...

"Hey, McKay! I thought you were off to bed."

Startled, Rodney whirled around. "I... I just needed some air, Major."

"The thought of pretty Allina having the hots for you is keeping you awake, huh?"

"Not at all. I´m not interested in getting into... into Allina´s bed or... anyone else´s," Rodney spluttered.

"Is that right?" Sheppard came closer and Rodney moved backwards, finding a massive tree blocking his way.

"Yes, it is. I don´t wanna talk about this anymore."

"What about mine?"

"Huh?" Having the handsome pilot so close, Rodney couldn´t think straight.

"Would you like to come to my bed?"

Rodney gulped. "Is this a joke?"

"No, McKay. I´m inviting you to my bed."

Stunned, Rodney stared at him, nibbling on his lip.

"Seeing you speechless is simply arousing." Sheppard grinned, enchanted.

"Why?" Rodney croaked at last.

"Why what?"

"Why would you like me to come to your bed?"

"To read you a bedtime story, McKay. What do you think?" Sheppard stepped closer. His breath touched Rodney´s skin.

"But we´re..."

"...both men. Is that a problem?"

"No. But we´re... so different."

"True," Sheppard agreed. "Still, I want you."

Rodney´s face became hot. This must be one of my dreams.

"I see you like the sound of that."


Sheppard captured his lips and drew him into a long, passionate kiss.

"Major!" Rodney gasped at last. "That´s enough."

"I understand." Sheppard stepped back.

"No... no, you don´t." Possessively, Rodney grabbed his arm. "Just... not here. Let´s go to... to..."

Sheppard smirked. "It´s my bed after all, isn´t it?"

"It always was," Rodney confessed quietly.

"That´s what I´ve always wanted to hear." Sheppard led him away.

The stars blinked brightly.
