Disclaimer: I don't own "Knight And Day", Roy Miller, or June Havens. I'm just having a little fun with them ;)
Author's Note: I saw the movie two nights in a row, I thought it was that good. And the next day, the idea for this popped into my head. It's an "In Between" story, set in the scene where Roy is having the shoot-out with Antonio's men in Spain, and June is "drugged-up". Enjoy!
A Little Fun
Roy Miller had been in this particular situation numerous times. Bullets whizzing past his head. Bad guys trying to kill him. The usual.
Only this time was slightly different. This time, he had a companion. And she was giggling.
"This is the first time I've ever been to Spain," June said, a huge grin plastered to her features, "and people are shooting at me!"
Granted, this remark was much less surprising than the "great sex" utterance, but now Roy was beginning to worry.
Another bullet flew by, missing him easily. "June, what exactly did Antonio give you?" he asked.
"Something really good." June answered, closing her eyes and slowly shaking her head as she crouched down.
"Do you remember the name of the drug?" Roy stepped briefly out from behind the wall; he shot his weapon, taking down two men before he placed himself behind it once more.
June's smile never diminished. Her eyes opened.
"He never told me the name, just that it was a 'truth serum'."
Roy's eyebrows rose. So, that's what it was. He had thought that when Antonio's goons were escorting June she'd been a little more…chatty. Antonio wanted the Battery, and would use any means to get it. Even drug June.
And then, it hit Roy.
There was a lull in the shots being fired (he'd taken out quite a few of the bad guys), and June had been given a truth serum.
Might as well have a little fun.
"Hey, June," Roy began with a smile, "when's your birthday?"
"June tenth." His companion replied. "And April's in April twenty-eighth. Get it: June and April?" She giggled again.
"I do." Confirmed Roy. He continued. "How did you ever think Rodney was right for you?"
"He was kind." June divulged. "He listened. Was nice to my family. Did you know he once asked me to marry him?"
"No." Roy's smile lessened. "I didn't know that."
"Oh, but I turned him down. I couldn't marry a guy like Rodney."
"Good." Once again, Roy's spirits were up. "Because Rodney is a massive tool."
"He kind of is, isn't he?" Laughed June. Before Roy realized what she was doing, June started to stand up. He caught her arm quickly.
"Uh, June, you might want to stay where you are."
A light bulb seemed to go off for her. "Right. Because of the shooting."
"Exactly." Roy nodded. A few stray shots came, which he returned.
"I really like your parents, Roy." The woman told him.
"My parents?" He wasn't expecting that. June had met his parents?
"Yeah. You're dad's a little gruff, but a good man. And your mom's a sweetheart." June beamed.
Roy smiled to himself, liking the idea of June meeting his mother and father. "Thanks, June." He replied.
Suddenly, a rain of gunfire centered on the wall. Roy ducked further behind it, putting an arm out in front of June. Antonio must have had more guys waiting in the wings.
June didn't bat an eye. "How long do you think this stuff will last?" she wondered. "It's really fun."
Roy's smile grew, and he prepared to return fire. "Yes," he agreed. "It is."
