Fic Title: The Expose
Author: Ruth
Pairings: Quatre/Trowa
Rating : PG
Warnings/Spoilers: AU, post -EW, written punchy at 1am
Story Summary: Set on an expose, a reporter gets more than she bargained for.

“Espionage and terrorism are what the Gundams stood for,” said the reporter triumphantly. “All the evidence points to you, Quatre Raberba Winner as one of the infamous pilots.”

“Oh, yes, well,” Quatre shifted in his chair uncomfortably. He glanced at his partner, who gave him a sly look under his chin-length bangs as he lounged on the couch of the interview set. “I’m not surprised, Father’s public relations team has always been good at what they do.”

“What?” she looked confused.

“Well,” he looked away, clearly embarrassed. “There was quite a cover up because I wasn’t involved in the best of professions during the War. I did run away to Earth yes, but I -er- ended up in North America, Las Vegas to be exact. I was a musician, piano player at . . . what was it called, Trowa?”

“The Garden of Delights,” supplied Trowa with a smirk.

“The Gar. . .” she gaped at them both. “That’s a house of prostitution!”

“It’s legal there,” Quatre began defensively, “but I suppose if you must put it that way; I was a piano player in a whorehouse.”

“Th-then how did the two of you meet?”

“I was just drifting along,” Trowa drawled. “On my way to. . . say, where was I going?”

“If you don’t know, I certainly don’t,” Quatre shot back.

“But the evidence. . .!” she wailed.

“Oh, there’s no evidence,” Trowa shook his head. “It’s always been that way; whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”

*DL* I guess its all in the POV which is more embarassing.

Blame Gina, I knew that icon of hers would lead to something.

^____^ Good cover up on Quatre's part. I wonder if he rehearsed it, just in case?

Of course, and I'm sure Trowa helped plan it all out, LOL

*dies laughing* Oh man, this is so so perfect! I can just see them doing that (and then role playing it at home...)

I remember that icon someone had, 'Don't tell my father that I play piano in a whore house' or something like that.

This was hilarious, short and so very funny.

"Don't tell my father I'm a Gundam pilot, he thinks I'm a piano player in a whorehouse."

Thank you!
