Sam's succulent mouth was too much to resist anymore. Derek bent his head and crushed their lips together, forcing past Sam's nonexistent defenses to plunder in the hot depths.
They didn't do this at work. Derek had a very clean line he kept between his personal life and his private, though that had been noticeably blurred ever since they were both assigned to Gena's case. Still, he didn't indulge in his desire for Sam when they were on the clock, and any liberties he took with Sam's body within the confines of the office only took place after hours.
That didn't stop him from reaching for Sam's hip, though, and yanking their bodies closer. Or prevent Sam from grabbing the back of Derek's head and holding him down, lashing back as hungrily as Derek did. If anything, it made it better, knowing this was dangerous, knowing how close he was to his personal boundaries. He didn't test them nearly as often as Sam would like him to. For anyone else, he wouldn't.
Sam was different.
Sam had always been different.
They broke apart, panting. Sam's swollen mouth glistened, beckoning Derek back, but even more enticing was the swelling lower down. His erection pushed against Derek's upper thigh, nudging at his aching balls. It always amazed him how responsive Sam was. The man could get hard just from a kiss. Then again, so could Derek, though that was a reaction reserved only for Sam.
"Is this your idea of celebrating?" Sam asked.
"This is just the start." He tightened his grip, bending to graze his mouth over Sam's salty jaw. "Let's cancel the rest of the day and go back to my place. I've got a lot of adrenaline to work off."
