|It's just a word
Author: gsrfan1 PM
Harvey uses a variety of words to describe Mike, Kid, Rookie and his all time favourite puppy, but he finds it's the words other people, and Mike himself use, that have the most meaning. Almost like a 5 and 1 fic, with Harvey's reactions to some particular words and then him using a word of his own.Rated: Fiction T - English - Romance/Angst - Mike R. & Harvey S. - Chapters: 6 - Words: 9,857 - Reviews: 26 - Favs: 80 - Follows: 65 - Updated: 07-28-12 - Published: 07-15-12 - Status: Complete - id: 8322300

Chapter 6 - Home
Mike and Harvey had been dating, secretly of course, for about 2 months now, and things were going smoothly despite Harvey's early reservations.
He was finding that he was a much better boyfriend than he had ever thought he could be, and Mike was everything he knew he would be, eager, sappy and just pretty great in general.
"I'm all done here," Harvey said, standing up from his office chair, smiling at the sight of Mike sprawled out on the couch, his familiarity was going to give them away.
"Well isn't it nice to be the boss?" Mike asked playfully stifling a yawn, "I've got another couple of hours left….no having fun without me" he whispered,
"I wouldn't dare," Harvey smiled, leaning in close enough to feel the heat from Mike's skin but still agonisingly far away.
'No relationship in the office,' he reminded himself of the golden rule,
He passed Mike a file from the desk as an excuse to brush his hand over his and gave him a sly wink that had Mike biting his lip.
"I'm gonna get you," Mike mouthed as Harvey teased him,
"I'll look forward to it," Harvey smiled, as he walked back to his chair and slipped on his jacket.
Donna just smiled as she took in the display, the two lawyers were not nearly as subtle as they thought they were.
"Right, well then I'll see you at home." Harvey said as he walked to the door, causing both Donna and Mike to look at him with a start.
"What?" he asked, turning back to Mike as he saw Donna's expression.
"You said home," Mike said almost breathless, hoping it meant what he thought it did,
"I meant my place" Harvey covered,
"That's not what you said," Mike taunted, "a lawyer has to choose his words carefully,"
"Yeah yeah whatever," Harvey brushed him off casually, "it's just a word." he teased using Mike's catchphrase against him.
"I think I like it," Mike beamed,
"Get back to work and hurry your ass back there then," Harvey ordered, "I'm not waiting all night."
"Yes sir," Mike mocked saluted as Harvey walked down the hall, he exchanged a look with Donna and could see in her eyes she knew more than she letting on and made a note to ask her about it some time later, but for now he was going to bury his head in his files and get out of there as soon as he could.
'Home?' Harvey read the text from Donna as Ray drove him to that very place, 'are you trying to give the game away?'
'Give me a break, I was excited,' Harvey texted back,
'I could tell,' came Donna's reply with a winking face,
'Grow up,' Harvey smiled as he typed the words,
'Is that what you tell Mike?' she teased, 'I bet he loves it when you get all stern….'
'I'm not above firing you, you know.' Harvey wrote back shaking his head,
'You tell yourself that,' Donna texted back from her desk, 'now if you'll excuse me, phase 2 of Mission: Harvey and Mike sitting in a tree….is about to commence.'
Harvey read the message a few times before putting his phone away and smiled, Donna was a little crazy sometimes but as long as she stayed on his side he didn't mind.
"Harvey asked me to give you something," Donna said as she walked up to Mike,
"No offence Donna, but you're not really my type and I'm pretty sure we're not allowed to do things like that at the office," Mike said highlighter cap in the corner of his mouth as he stood at Harvey's desk.
"Smart ass," she smiled, leaning over to get a view of it, before furrowing her brow in mock disapproval.
"I'll have you know I have a great ass thank you very much," Mike defended.
"Oh believe me I know, Harvey has told me all about it in vivid detail…..my fantasies thank you." she teased,
"Does it make me seem weak to admit I'm a little scared right now?" Mike asked,
"Oh puppy," she said handing him a small box, "you should always be scared of me."
"A box, oh Harvey you shouldn't have," Mike teased holding his hand to his chest in mock adoration.
"Open it before I take it back," Donna commanded,
"A key to his liquor cabinet?" Mike asked holding the object in the palm of his hand, his heart beating hard against his chest as he thought about what it really was.
"Try again," Donna called as she sat back at her desk.
Gathering up his bags and putting his files in a neat pile he smiled,
"Hey Donna," he said almost bouncing as he passed her desk, "I think I'm going home early tonight."
"Sounds good to me," she smiled, 'go get him kid,'
"Honey I'm home," Mike called as him let himself into the condo with his key.
'God that sounds good!'
"Harvey?" he called as he looked around the darkened room, walking towards the bedroom thinking maybe he had come home too late after all.
"You took your time," Harvey's voice came from behind him as he stood at the foot of the bed, the room lit only by the light from the hallway.
Harvey slipped his hand around Mike's waist before moving up his chest to remove his jacket, that's when Mike realised that Harvey was wearing considerably less clothes than he was. "Had a little trouble with the key," he smirked turning to face Harvey.
'Ok, really a lot less clothes than me' he thought as Harvey stood there in nothing but a smile.
"Well don't worry," Harvey said planting small kisses down Mike's neck as he pushed him into a sitting position on the bed, "you'll have plenty of time to get used to how it works."
"Good to know," Mike smiled as he pulled his tie over his head in a slow and steady motion, he knew it drove Harvey crazy.
"Jesus kid," he breathed out as Mike reached out to put his hands on his waist,
"Not a kid" Mike smiled against the skin of Harvey's hip, making him glad that Mike was a grown man.
Harvey's hand moved to Mike's shirt and made short work of the buttons, reluctantly Mike stood up to allow Harvey to remove it from his shoulders.
Putting a hand on either side of Mike's face Harvey smiled as the light from the hallway caught Mike's eyes,
"Welcome home Mike," he smiled against his lips.
"Home," Mike repeated, pulling Harvey's chest again his, "Yeah…..I definitely like that word."
