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.

Click. There was a sudden yelp of surprise. Gambit grinned and turned around.
Purdey was now sprawled untidily on what a few seconds ago had been his couch. Now it was his bed. He committed her priceless shocked expression to memory.
"Really, Purdey, if you were so eager, all you had to do was say something."
