Title / Prompt: A few...bumps/When love is not madness, it is not love. - Pedro Calderon de la Barca.
Character: Roger Smith
Warnings: None
Pairings: Roger/Satine
Fandom: Big O
Word count: 643
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Many Japanese and American companies own him.
Author's Note: This is the Roger I RP with. Very little canon here and if Satine is out of character, Satine!mun can kick me and make me write it right.


The bedroom door slammed closed, almost knocking him over. Certainly not an easy thing to do, considering Roger's height and weight. But when Satine was angry, she was more than capable of taking him on.

Why was she so angry? He was only a half hour late. He hadn't asked the meeting to run over. He hadn't even wanted to be there, but he'd stayed as a favor to the owner to hear the company's proposal. Not that it had interested him in the least...

"Satine..."

"Stupide!" she yelled through the door. "Tout les hommes êtes tous même! Stupide! Enfantin! Peu sensible..."

"Mais..."

"...rustre, distrait, sourd..."

Roger slumped against the doorjamb as she continued to berate his sex. He still couldn't think why she was so angry at him. After all, they'd only planned to go to dinner. The place was still open and he was certain they'd honor the reservation. It wasn't as if the meeting had truly been important enough to warrant his attention.

Oh, that was the rub, was it? She knew he hadn't wanted to be there, but he hadn't tried to get out of it early to get to the restaurant. She had spent much time making sure she was in the perfect outfit with the perfect accessories, hair carefully coiffed and all the details seen to. And what had he done? Rushed home, already late and just expecting to head out for their 6-month anniversary dinner in the same suit he'd worn all day.

Roger sighed. What to do? She was still running through her very impressive repetoire of insults, having now graduated to Italian. He fished his phone out of his pocket and connected to the computer. Ordering 11 red roses, he quickly ducked into the hall bathroom, quickly cleaned himself with a washcloth, then tiptoed into his office. With a sigh of relief, he grabbed the tux he had absently left there from its last trip to the dry cleaner and quickly redressed. Patting his hair into place, he searched for the florist delivery truck via GPS. He snuck down the stairs before the truck even arrived and opened the door before the man knocked. Giving him the credit card quickly, he peered back up the stairs where Satine's voice continued, now in German, to tell him what she thought of his folly. The man gave him a knowing look and handed him the bouquet.

He quietly went back up the stairs.

"Tu as raison..."

The door flew open and she gave him a gimlet glare before he produced the roses. As a woman knowledable in the language of flowers, she understood the message he conveyed. She looked him up and down and dragged him into the room where she threw the roses on the bed, grabbed a white bowtie and tied it for him. He didn't utter a single protest.

"Now you are presentable." She shooed him out of the bedroom and proceeded down the stairs. Roger started the Griffin's and garage door's controls and followed her out of the house, locking it down electronically as he locked the door with the key.

"I'm sorry, love," he apologized as the Griffin headed to their destination. "I didn't mean to stay at that stupid meeting."

She raised a cool eyebrow. "What was so important that you could not have at least told me you were going to be late?"

"Nothing. I'm sorry I was so thoughtless."

With careful nonchalance, she plucked off a few stray cat hairs from her elegant dress. "You know I will be ordering truffles tonight."

Inwardly, Roger groaned. Truffles meant that she'd definitely be falling asleep early. For some reason, the mushrooms always knocked her out. Perhaps it was just the entire meal she would consume in order to feel she'd been somewhat satisfied by his apology. However, he could hardly begrudge her. When one loved a passionate woman, one lived with all of her passions, including her temper.

At least she hadn't thrown shoes at him this time...

SO good, so good.

Thank you.

BTW, very nice piece of synchronicity on your part talking to Olivia Benson in the sixwordstories story. I was figuring that Roger didn't want to know the sex ahead of time either and had mentioned it to a couple of friends of mine over dinner that night. Grinned whole lots when I saw the response a few hours later.

I just thought it sounded right, I don't think either of them would mind which they have as long as it's healthy.

Oh yeah. I figure the nursery's all a nice green so it won't matter. With lots of stuffies.

Green?

So you're leaning towards a boy?
rogersmith_bigo
Apr. 22nd, 2008 12:51 pm (UTC)
No, green is not blue or pink and yellow's too...yellow.

Green is very much a boy's colour. Why not a white room with just bears and other such things in it.

White sounds excellent. I saw a stuffie sheep that would be quite cute in there.

I would like a rocking chair in there too.
rogersmith_bigo
Apr. 22nd, 2008 11:26 pm (UTC)
Most certainly. It'll have to be re-enforced so I can sit in it as well. Or perhaps we should get 2?
diamond_whore
Apr. 22nd, 2008 11:27 pm (UTC)
No I think one would be fine, if we both want to spend time with our baby we can bring them downstairs or into our room. The chair is mostly for nursing to sleep.

Or singing to sleep.

Yes. With the two of us I believe our child will be very musical.
rogersmith_bigo
Apr. 23rd, 2008 03:31 am (UTC)
And possibly follow in mother's footsteps?
diamond_whore
Apr. 23rd, 2008 08:33 pm (UTC)
I think father is musical also.
rogersmith_bigo
Apr. 24th, 2008 12:23 am (UTC)
Quite true. Should we give him or her a little piano?

Apr. 24th, 2008 11:15 am (UTC)
When they are a little older we could.

Apr. 24th, 2008 11:57 pm (UTC)
*He nods.* A baby would just bang on it.
diamond_whore
Apr. 25th, 2008 08:40 pm (UTC)
So many when they are older then *kisses his cheek*

Of course, we could also end up with a painter. It's a good thing I play a lot of classical music. According to all the internet sites, babies who listen to classical music, even while they're in the womb, end up more intelligent.

I'll be happy as long as they are healthy.
rogersmith_bigo
Apr. 26th, 2008 08:15 pm (UTC)
I think the baby is. You've been quite healthy the entire time which helps the baby and eating all the right foods (though some of the combinations I truly have to wonder about). The doctor seems to think everything is going very well.
diamond_whore
Apr. 28th, 2008 05:34 pm (UTC)
Yes, the doctor does.

Speaking of, have you seen the Doctor and Jack recently, or Draco perhaps.
rogersmith_bigo
Apr. 28th, 2008 10:59 pm (UTC)
I talked to Mike recently. I know how to get a hold of Jack, who could probably get the Doctor. We could send Draco an owl if you want.

I was just wondering how they all are.
