Author's Note- Hey everyone, I'm back! I created a new account, so just check out my profile to get the lowdown about what will happen with my other fics.
This idea just came to me, idek.
They decided to make a day out of it. It was the hottest day in Chicago's history, and the entire city's population was heading for the beaches. District 21's precinct was next to empty, besides the unlucky sucker that pulled the short straw and got the job of holding down the fort while the air conditioning was busted. Adam felt sorry for the poor guy.
Well, moment of pity over. He packed his bag into the trunk of his car, throwing his towel down on top of the black backpack. It was early morning and it was already sweltering. He hadn't even bothered to put on his usual denim shirt. He was in a simple, light white cotton t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
He really hoped Halstead and Antonio wouldn't mock him over it. But he knew they would. The entire team was going, bar Voight and Olinsky. Apparently, they had business to take care of. Besides that, every member of the Intelligence Unit was piling into different cars, Erin and Jay in one, himself, Atwater and Burgess in another, and Antonio was driving down with his kids, Gabby and Matt.
They all needed a day out. Being in the Intelligence Unit was not easy. Ever since Jin was killed, the personal and professional lives of the team members had spun out of control. Erin and Severide had ended things, and although she pretended not to care, her emotions came to the surface from time to time. Atwater was trying to adjust to his new life in Intelligence, Jay had almost been recalled to active duty, then got stabbed during a case a few months ago. Meanwhile, Antonio and his wife were separated, trying to work things out. That, and his sister and future brother-in-law were in an explosion that took out two members of their squad. Gabby had been seriously injured, missing her shot to be a firefighter.
The only thing that seemed to be working out was him and Kim. Honestly, he had never been happier. Especially since no-one knew about them. Kim was still striving to get a spot in Intelligence, so there was no chance she was going to let Voight find out about their dalliance.
But that did not mean they couldn't spend every moment away from work together. It was her idea to head to the beach, and while it was just meant to be the both of them, Halstead had invited himself along, so naturally Erin joined in, then Atwater, and finally Antonio and his family. Even though it was meant to be just him and Kim, he knew it was going to be fun with the rest of the team.
When they reached the beach, the three of them piled out of the car into the blistering heat. Kim was dressed in denim shorts and a white tank top, with one of those goofy sunhats that dwarfed her perfectly small face. He smiled at her when they walked down the sand, wanting so desperately to kiss her.
Kim sent a quick text to Lindsay, who promptly replied, telling her that they had just pulled up. Lucky for them, they found a prime spot, not too close and not too far from the water. The sand was rapidly filling up, so Kim threw her bag down to save a spot for the Dawsons.
When Erin and Jay arrived, the three other people burst out laughing. Jay joined in, giggling at Erin's pink face.
"I'm not used to the sun, okay?" She defends, putting on her sunglasses to hide the colour of her cheeks and nose.
"Sure." Jay laughs, earning him a punch to the arm. She walks off, laying down her towel as Jay follows her with his gaze.
Kim and Adam share a look, a knowing one. Shrugging at her boyfriend, she sets out her towel beside his. Even in minimal clothing, she was still boiling. Truth be told, she wasn't used to the heat, either. But she had plastered herself with SPF50 this morning, so she should be okay.
She peels off her top, revealing her turquoise and green bikini top, which, needless to say, showed a lot more skin than Kim usually shows.
Peeling off her bottoms as well, she sat down on her towel, when she noticed the group's eyes trained on her.
"What?" She asked.
Jay stammered, looking at her with a gaping expression. Erin took hold of his chin and shut his mouth. Adam just laughed.
"What, Ruzek, no comment about the revealing nature of the young officers' attire?" Atwater asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Yeah, Ruzek," Kim asked, "any comment?" She smiled wickedly at him.
"I think, uh, um..." He stuttered.
Kim laughed. "Calm down. I'm just messing with you."
He let out a breath he didn't know he had been holding. He plastered a goofy smile across his face, attempting to hide his discomfort. She was a lot more confident in her abilities than he first thought she was. In a lot of ways.
She lay down on her towel and put on her sunglasses. The others followed suit, and Jay yet again sat there gobsmacked as Erin removed her t-shirt and shorts.
"Jesus, Halstead, you'd swear you've never seen a woman in a bikini before." She laughed, gesturing to the black swimsuit.
He averts his eyes awkwardly as Lindsay begins putting on sun lotion. Atwater was secretly enjoying this whole awkward situation.
About an hour later, Antonio, Gabby, Matt, Eva and Diego arrive, and of course the kids want to go straight down to the water. Gabby offers to take them down, dragging Matt along, Erin wants to go as well, so of course Halstead follows her like a lost puppy. Antonio goes down to spend some time with his kids, leaving Atwater, Ruzek and Burgess behind.
The three fall into a silence, an awkward one. Kim so desperately wants to spend time with Adam. Alone. So, she's quite relieved when Atwater follows the group down, while Adam notices he's not following the group.
As soon as the officer is out of sight, Adam smiles that goofy grin that Kim loves, placing a lazy kiss on her lips. He's glad he has even the smallest of moments to spend with her today.
She smiles back at him as he tucks a strand of hair behind her ear.
"So what do you think?" She asks him.
"About what?" He questions, raising an eyebrow at her.
"My swimsuit." She smiles cheekily, her face lighting up devilishly.
He grins, leaning over to whisper exactly what he thought of her swimsuit in her ear.
She blushed, giggling. "Well, I may just let you do that." She grins wickedly. He kisses her again, this one lasting longer than their last. They're not exactly sure how long they were in that position, but all they know is that someone broke it up with an abrupt cough.
Atwater looked down at them, raising an eyebrow. "Really?"
They just laughed.
