Summary: My return was imminent and while it wasn't as quick as I hoped it would have been I am still posting so that has to count for something. I would just like to give thanks to everyone who has read, reviewed, and favorited. You guys are extremely awesome and hopefully you haven't seen the last of me in this reality. I haven't written it yet but I suddenly have the inspiration to write a sequel to this involving both couples out having dinner. Yes, that could really be in your future if you really want it bad enough. Anyways this is the last chapter and I will have to be you farewell. Please ENJOY!
Disclaimer: These shows do not belong to me, unfortunately because that would have been awesome. I will say that any of the characters from Scrubs should totally guest star on Psych. Who wouldn't want to see Perry as a killer. Just saying.
Detective Lassiter pulled up to the local bar he visited frequently and let out a small sigh. After a sixteen-hour day that included a chase on foot he was finally able to call it a night, a night that included a few drinks and dinner before going home with Shawn. After three months of dating the two of them were in a real good place and Carlton couldn't be happier. Quickly he got out of his car and made his way to the bar when he noticed someone familiar in front of him. "Perry what are you doing here?" Carlton asked the tired doctor when he saw the other man about to go inside.
Perry halted and turned around to see his friend a few paces behind him, trying his best not to let the tiredness in his face show. After being on call for more than thirteen hours he was ready for a cold drink or two. "Carlton, what a surprise," smiled Perry as he waited for Carlton to catch up with him.
"We didn't have plans tonight did we?"
"What are we a bunch of girls, of course we didn't have plans tonight."
"Then what are you doing here?"
"Well if you must know Carlton I'm here to meet Paris," admitted Perry, "What are you doing here?"
"I'm here to meet Spencer if he's still here. I'm running late because I was working on a case."
"Same here but Newbie doesn't mind that I'm late since he told me he's here with someone."
"Spencer told me the same thing," Carlton replied. "Hey Perry, you don't think-"
"No, that's impossible-"
"Really because if that happened-"
"It would be the worse thing to ever happen to us." Perry finished, scared to open the door and walk inside. Just the thought of J.D and Shawn becoming friends made him shudder.
Carlton let out a loud sigh, pushed open the door as the two men walked inside. There, sitting at the bar, were Shawn and J.D laughing at something oblivious to the world around them.
"It's official, our lives are ruined."
"Really, what gave it away."
"Now is not the time for you to be a jackass," Perry hissed, watching the two men at the bar.
"Why, you get to be one all the time."
"I'm special," Perry smirked.
"Look, there's no need to get panicked about this. Maybe if we leave now they won't see us and we don't have to worry about them finding out that we know each other."
"Of course it does," smirked Perry as he reached for the handle but it was too late. Before he could even touch he heard the sound of J.D calling his name from the other side of the bar.
"Over here Dr. Cox," J.D called out again making Perry groan.
"Come on Lassie, I know you see us." This time is was Carlton's turn to let out a loud groan.
"Lets just get this over with."
Perry nodded in agreement as the two made their way to the bar. The bartender noticed them right away and had their drinks ready before the men sat down.
"I can't believe you two know each other," J.D grinned happily. "What are the odds?"
"Frankly not high enough," Perry whispered, downing his drink.
"You're such a kidder. Shawn I would like you to met Perry-"
"Dr. Perry Cox."
"And I would like to introduce you to Head Detective Carlton Lassiter or Lassi-face for short," smiled Shawn as he introduced him partner to his new friend before kissing the older man on the cheek. "How come you never told me you had a friend that was a doctor?"
"You never asked," Carlton shrugged. "Besides, it's not a big deal."
"It's not a big deal, of course it's a big deal. You actually have a friend outside of work."
"Don't worry Lassie-pants, I won't tell anyone I promise," promised Shawn, squeezing his partner's hand.
"Ditto," nodded J.D in agreement.
"You better not or I swear to God I will kill you."
"Don't you just love it when they threaten you with murder," Shawn leaned over and whispered to J.D.
"Oh God yes," J.D whispered back.
"Maybe if you're interested the four of us could get together and you know."
Seeing J.D grin uncontrollable and cock his head to the side, showing Perry that the younger man was currently having a daydream, was enough for Perry as the older doctor banged his empty glass on the countertop. "That's enough, Newbie come." Perry stood up and grabbed J.D's collar pulling him up as well, stopping the daydream completely.
"But we can't go yet, I never got to finish my fantasy and Shawn was just about to tell me how he and Carlton hooked up."
Shawn took his cue and leaned over closer to J.D, whispering the response in the other man's ear. "Let's just say," he whispered somewhat loudly, "That I gathered some mistletoe and followed the French term Carpe Diem."
"That's Latin," J.D whispered back.
"Veni vidi vici."
"Once again Shawn that's Latin."
"Vivi la Vida."
"Now you're speaking Spanish," J.D informed him smirking slightly as he pushed Shawn away. "But it doesn't matter because I kinda get the idea."
"Well as long as you get it," shrugged Shawn, "So what about you, how did you and Perry start knocking boots."
"First of all there was no knocking of boots in the first night all we did was talk and second of all I'm starting to get the feeling that your boyfriend-"
"Do not call him my boyfriend," Carlton hissed at J.D who immediately became startled.
"Okay," replied J.D nervously, "I think that your Carlton had something to do with it because I got a phone call from a Detective Lassiter who told me, well more like commanded that I come here and pick up Perry. I did and the next thing I know we're making out in the parking lot."
"That's my Lassie, a modern day cupid."
"Great, I owe my fabulous life to Carlton Lassiter and I couldn't be happier. Now that that's over Tina and I will be going," replied Perry, pulling on J.D collar once more.
"But what about-"
"I don't care we're leaving."
"Come on Percival, we're just getting to know each other."
"How did you know my name?"
"Didn't you know, Shawn's a psychic detective." replied J.D proudly. "Isn't that right Shawn?"
"That's right but seeing as how Carlton and Perry are already friends I believe he already knows that."
"You were right Carlton, he is a pain in the ass."
"You thought I was lying."
"Hey, I am not that bad," pouted Shawn.
"Ha he thinks you're pain in the ass," J.D laughed only to be yanked by the collar again, this time choking him in the process. "Hey."
"What's so damn funny, Perry thinks you're one too," replied Carlton, grabbing Shawn's arm and lifting his lover up as well.
"Tell me something I don't know. He only tells me that like everyday," shrugged J.D nonchalantly.
Shawn couldn't help but shake his head and agree with J.D that Carlton treated him the same way. "Hey me too, especially at the police station. He hates my guts when I'm there."
"Wow, we're even more alike then we originally thought."
"You could say that again."
"I said we're even more alike-"
"I heard you the first time dude," Shawn interrupted J.D mid-sentence. "It's just an expression."
J.D pouted and rolled his eyes at his new friend, pushing aside his hurt feelings. "I knew that, I just wanted to add more emphasis."
"Emphasis added," smiled Shawn as Carlton's grip became tighter. "Hate to call it an early night but Carly here is squeezing all the blood out of my arm and I really think he's trying to tell me something but I can never be too sure with him. Even so I was wondering if we could hang out sometime, you know watch a movie or something-"
"Alright, that's it. Time to go," Carlton yelled and began pulling Shawn away from the bar. Shawn never got a chance to finish his sentence as he found himself being dragged outside.
J.D watched his new friend being pulled away and found himself a bit sadden. "I didn't even get a chance to say yes," he whispered quietly to himself as the men walked out of the door..
Perry sighed and let go of J.D's collar, instead wrapped one arm around his waist. "Lets get out of here Debra."
J.D sighed and nodded as he placed money on the counter to cover both his and Shawn's drink. Wrapping his arm around Perry's he walked out of the bar and to Perry's car when Shawn noticed a piece of paper on the windshield. Picking it up he realized it was a note from none other than Shawn.
J.D-Next time we go out I'm buying the drinks and make sure you bring your BBF. Gus won't believe I'm telling the truth if you don't and don't worry, I already got your number so it won't be a problem setting up a time.
"Yes," J.D shrieked stuffing the note in his pocket before getting in the car. Across the parking lot Perry noticed Carlton frowning as he got into his own car.
"And just when I thought my life couldn't get any worse," Perry growled to himself as he too, got into the car and drove off.
The final chapter has been posted. Once again much thanks and love to everyone who read. You guys rock steady and hopefully you'll see me sooner than later. Until next time,
Love may be a battlefield but that doesn't mean you can't win the war,
