“A Lucite factory,” Danny said, all resigned exasperation.

“That’s what my contact told me,” Steve confirmed as he drove the Land Rover far too fast down the dusty road.

“Why would Wo Fat be hiding in a factory that makes transparent surfaces?” Danny asked before glancing out at the scenery. It was so foreign to him but to Steve, it inexplicably seemed like home. But then who knew the secret ways of SEALs?

“I don’t know,” Steve said, taking the next curve like he was the lead car in a road rally. “But you can be sure he’s there.”

“Or he was,” Danny said. “What else did your contact say?”

“Not much. He’s not as loquacious as some people are,” Steve said, glancing over at Danny to judge his reaction.

“Loquacious,” Danny repeated. “And you mocked me for ergo.”

“I didn’t know you then. And I certainly would not have guessed we’d become lovers.”

“Lovers,” Danny parroted.

“Are you planning to repeat everything I say?” Steve asked conversationally. But Danny could hear the underlying irritation. If they hadn’t been lovers, he’d have never heard it. But it was absolutely there.

“That’s kind of an old fashioned word, isn’t it? Like we’re doing something wrong by being involved. Having sex without the benefit of marriage,” Danny said.

“Then marry me,” Steve said.

“God but you are romantic,” Danny laughed. “We are in the middle of the Australian outback, hoping to finally track down the man who managed to ruin large sections of your life and you decide this is the perfect time to propose.”

“It doesn’t really matter the circumstances under which I ask. You are a sure thing,” Steve said, again with the goofy smile which Danny had no chance of ignoring.

“Not one minute ago you were annoyed at me,” Danny pointed out. “You spend a lot of your waking hours being annoyed at me. Some of your sleeping ones too. But you just, out of the blue, propose to me.”

“Did you not hear me when I said you are a sure thing? You love me. I love Grace. What’s there to discuss?”

Danny sighed, knowing he was defeated. “Fine. But we have to have a real wedding. Grace will never forgive you if she doesn’t get a new dress out of it.”

“Of course we’re going to have a wedding,” Steve said. “We’ll start planning it as soon as we get home. Kono and Chin have already agreed to help.”

“Well. Naturally you told them before you told me,” Danny sighed.

“Technically, they told me I have no choice but to marry you,” Steve said.

“Nice. Those are some nice friends we have,” Danny said, with a shake of his head.

“They only want the best for you,” Steve told him.

“Then you don’t qualify. You try to get me killed on an alarmingly regular basis.”

“But I usually rescue you,” Steve reminded him.

“And yours is the best blow job I’ve ever had.”

Steve just smiled.

Haha, Chin and Kono made him do it. Of course Steve would propose in the middle of a case involving Wo Fat. So cute!
