Dino rolled over in bed and watched his lover for a few moments. Terry was sleeping peacefully with a small smile on his face. Dino smirked knowing that he had been the one to put that smile there just few hours before. He sighed and rolled onto his back staring at the ceiling. He wished he could be as content as Terry had been the past few weeks but he was becoming restless. It had been almost two months since their last job and sitting around the house all day with basically nothing to do but be domestic was eating at his nerves. He carefully rolled out of bed being careful not to wake Terry and groped around in the dark room for his pants.

Terry reached out a few minutes later and found the bed empty. His eyes drifted open and he rolled to his side. Dino wasn't there. He sat up in bed and looked around. He knew his lover had been getting restless of late and he'd been surprised that the redhead had stuck around for as long as he had. He wandered out into the house and was surprised to find Dino sitting out on the back porch. He was certain he'd taken off again. Terry stepped out onto the porch and took a seat next to his lover.

"You're still here, mate?" he asked.

Dino looked over at him with a sad smile. "Not for much longer," he said.

Terry nodded. He understood his partner's restlessness and his need to be on the move but he didn't want him to leave. Or maybe he didn't want to leave him. A thought struck Terry then.

"How 'bout we go to Brazil? You and me."

Dino's face broke into a smile. "Really? You'd do that?"

Terry nodded. "I'll leave contact info with the company. If they need us, they'll find us."

Dino knew what it meant to Terry to have some down time and what it meant for him to give it for him. He was ready to take off alone again but now he wouldn't have to.

"How soon can we go?" he asked eagerly.

"It'll take a day to arrange a flight. Day after tomorrow. Can ya wait that long?" Terry asked with a smirk.

"I'll manage two more days," Dino answered and pulled Terry into a kiss.
