100 Words For TNA

Disclaimer: I don't own The New Avengers, nor the characters of Steed, Gambit, and Purdey. They belong to The Avengers (Film and TV) Enterprises. This story is written for entertainment purposes only. No copyright infringement intended.

Author's Note: A couple years ago, there was a thread for Avengers drabbles on the Avengers.tv forum (recently relaunched as a new version). A drabble is a story consisting of 100 words in addtion to the title, which can consist of no more than 4 words. This is actually tougher than you'd think, but I thought I'd give it a try regardless, and as they're no longer available elsewhere, I thought I'd post them here one at a time, in the order they were written, as a bit of light relief and a stop-gap while I get ready to start posting my arc.

A Good Fit?

Steed walked into Gambit's hotel room and raised an eyebrow when he caught sight of his two colleagues.

"I see you finally got into Gambit's trousers," he remarked casually to Purdey.

Purdey shrugged. "It had to happen. Things couldn't carry on as they were forever."

"And I was happy to oblige," Gambit added, looking her over with approval.

"If only the airline hadn't lost my luggage," Purdey muttered, tugging at the belt that was holding up a pair of too long brown trousers with cuffed legs. "Mike, you wouldn't happen to have a shirt on the smallish side, would you?"
