Producers Better Man

Pairing: Max/Leo

Note: This fic flowed pretty easily from my mid to my fingertips (surprisingly) and its also a little longer than I thought it would be.


I don't own The Producers

Max woke up groggy and half splayed out on his desk he looked over at the empty bottles scattered around the office. He'd been trying to drown out the thought of Leo and Ulla away on vacation and how much he missed the younger man. Max sat up and groaned at the sudden spike of pain in his throbbing head, a souvenir of all the alcohol he had consumed and remembered the argument he had started with Leo the night before.

He had told Leo he was selfish for going away at this time they were busy trying to find the next show they were going to produce when Leo dropped the big surprise;

"Ulla is pregnant!" Leo stated "and we are going away to spend some time with each other before things get to busy around here"

"Are you sure its yours?" Max asked rudely. Leo began to turn red as he spluttered and grabbed the lapels of Max's jacket.

"What is that supposed to mean?" Leo thundered

"Why don't you ask your precious wife?" Max yelled as Leo shoved him back into his chair and turned around to leave Max noticed tears beginning to well up in Leo's eyes but before he can say any more Leo runs out of the office slamming the door behind him.

Max sighs and rubs his face as he thinks about poor Leo he hadn't meant to blurt it out like that he just wished he could be a better friend a better man for Leo but he didn't know where to begin.

The door to the office opens and Max puts his head back down on the desk

"Whoever you are and whatever you are here for it can wait until tomorrow" Max says tiredly he shuts his eyes as footsteps approach the desk.

"Max?" Leo says timidly Max stands up quickly forgetting about his hangover and knocks his chair down as he clutches his head and moans.

Leo quickly helps max over to the couch and rushes into the bathroom to find some aspirin. He brings it out with a glass of water after max takes the aspirin and gulps down the rest of the water Leo sits next to Max on the couch as an awkward silence falls over the pair.

"I'm so-"

"You we-" Max and Leo began at the same time they looked down then back up as Leo starts again

"Ulla's been cheating on me… but you already knew didn't you?"

"Yes and I should have told you sooner. I'm Sorry"

"I confronted her last night about it she confessed that she wasn't sure who the father is I- I've left her Max I packed my things but I don't have anywhere to go" Leo sinks down on the couch and puts his head in his hands. Max places a hand comfortingly on Leos back.

"Stay with me" Max whispers softly. He can't believe that Leo finally left Ulla and hopes that Leo will stay with him

"Are you sure Max?" Leo asks brightening

"Of course" Max smiles as Leo hugs him.

Just for Leo, Max will try to do all he can to be a better man.
