April Flowers Prompt #2 - Five o'Clock Shadow  
Title: Five O'clock Shadow
Author: mrstater
Rating & Warnings: rated G for goofy
Characters/ Pairing: Caz/Betriz
Prompt: #2, "new beginnings"
Format & Word Count: drabble, 100 words
Summary: Caz seems to have forgotten something, but don't worry, Betriz will be sure to remind him.
Author’s Notes: I think the Katymods should consider adding a genre tag for "just a bit of silliness, really!"

Caz looks up from his papers with a smile when his lady sweeps into his office. His greeting dies on his tongue as she approaches his desk, her face purposeful. Wordlessly she takes his face in her hands and kisses him deeply.

But, as abruptly as she kissed him, Betriz pulls her lips from Cazaril's. Her forehead dimples between sharply sloping eyebrows as her thumbs create a gentle friction along his jawline.

"Did you shave this morning?" she demands.

"I…" Caz swallows, hard "…might have forgotten."

Very cute. Poor Caz has too many duties, but he forgot the most important one. :)

Hee! Nothing more important than keeping one's lady happy. ;) Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm really happy you enjoyed. :)

Aww, this is sweet! Betriz certainly won't let Caz forget to shave more than once in a row, heh.

And I love the idea of her charging in to insist on a kiss!

Hee! I originally had an idea for something much darker (Caz's first day in the galley), but this popped into my head and seemed like a lot more fun! Glad you liked. :)

LOL, what an inventive take on the prompt. I love the idea that the shaving becomes a long-running joke (or not;)) between them, and also Betriz's insistence on a romantic break from work!

I intended to write about Caz's new beginning as a galley slave, but that idea was rather grim so I leaped at this one when it popped into my head! I'm very glad you liked it. Thanks for reading. :)

Come on Caz, you ought to know how to follow orders by now. ;)

Hee. He was probably too busy thinking about the Daughter... ;)

Thanks for reading!
