Title: 30 First Kisses - Kiss #24
Author: tiptoe39
Rating: PG for brief language.
Summary: "..."

This is the 24th of 30 possible ways Matt and Mohinder could share their first kiss, written for the 30_kisses challenge. The theme was "good night" (oyasumi). Previous kisses are here.

"Cockroaches! Why did it have to be cockroaches? I keep that room immaculate specifically so I won't have to deal with pests, and now I am exiled due to cockroaches. Life is absolutely not fair."

"Relax. That's why God invented the pull-out couch."

"I'm truly sorry for the imposition."

"It's no problem."

"But it's your privacy, and..."

"Mohinder. I said it's no problem. I said relax. Do you need me to start singing 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' now?"

"Right. Sorry. Good night."

"Good night."

* * *

"Do you..."


"Do you ever hear dreams? Other people's, I mean?"

"Nah, not by accident. Actually, they're kind of hard to get to, even when I try. They happen kind of fast and don't make a lot of sense."

"Oh, I see. Good night."

"Good night."

* * *

"Why, what kinds of embarrassing dreams don't you want me to know about?"

"Huh? Oh. No, nothing. It's not that."

"Sure, yeah, right."

"Truly. I'd just rather not have to answer for whatever my subconscious decides to dredge up overnight."

"If you say so. Good night."

* * *

"Sometimes I dream I'm naked in front of my sixth-grade class, if that makes you feel better."

"...Actually? It does, a little. With me it's my doctoral dissertation or my undergraduate thesis defense."

"So we have that in common. Who knew?"

"It's a universal anxiety dream. It's very common."

"Still, it's a good warning. If you hear me spouting scientist-speak you'll know I've gotten into your dream somehow. Either that or I've been replaced by a robot body snatcher evil clone. Either way, you'd better run away."

"So noted. G-g-good night."

"Good night."

* * *

"Are you cold?"


"I thought I heard your teeth chattering."

"I'm f-f-fine."

"You don't sound fine."

"I'm just a little cold. It's n-no problem."

"It's because you're so skinny. You don't have any meat on your bones. Here, why don't you climb in?"


"C'mon. This blanket's warmer, but I'm not willing to give it up because I'm greedy. So we'll have to share it. Plus, if you're under here too we'll have body heat."

"Do you realize what you're asking?"

"Sure I do. Relax. We're both mature enough. When was the last time you slept with someone? You know how good it is for the cold."


"Just get your skinny butt over here before you kacha-dettha-cold, as my mother used to say."


"There, isn't that twenty times better?"

"Thirty. At least. I'd... forgotten."

"I'll bet-- oh, Jesus, your feet are cold. I'm glad you finally got in here or I'd be finding pieces of your toes on the floor tomorrow morning."

"Thank you for offering. Good night."

"Good night, Mohinder."

* * *

"So how long has it been?"

"Has what been?"

"Since you slept with a woman."

"Since, uh... since I was at university."

"You haven't had sex since you were in college?"

"I, um, didn't say that."


"Do you want me to go back to the couch?"

"No, no, why would I want that?"

"Well, most people would be uncomfortable."

"What on earth for? Besides, how do you know I don't swing that way myself?"

"Because you were married."

"Well, there you go, then. Another reason not to worry about it. Good night."

* * *

"You know, there are people who swing both ways."

"I know that!"

"Just making sure. Good night."

"Good night."

* * *



"Do you swing both ways?"

"...Actually? Yeah."

"What!? Why didn't you ever tell me about this?"

"Didn't think it was relevant."

"W... wh.. We live together. Why would it not be relevant?"

"You didn't tell me you liked men."

"...Point taken."

"You know, we really should get some sleep at some point."

"Yes. Yes, indeed."

"OK. I'm going to say good night one more time, and when I do, I want you to shut up and go to sleep. No more talking, got it?"

"All right, all right."

"Good. Good night."

"Good night, Matt."

"I told you to shut up and go to sleep!"

"Sorry! Sorry! Good night!"

"Good night, Mohinder."

* * *




"Mohinder, are you asleep?


"You are asleep, right?"


"Here goes nothing, then..."


"...maybe next time I'll manage to do that when you're awake. Heh. Good night, gorgeous."

"Good night."

"SHIT! Holy shit shit you're awake shit DAMN IT!"

"I couldn't very well sleep through that."

"Shit. I'm sorry, Mohinder, oh, damn it, how do I explain... shit..."

"Do it again."


"Kiss me again. I liked it."

"Um, is it too hot under here? Maybe it's just me..."

"Matt. Kiss me again or I will kiss you myself."

"Actually, either of those options would kind of be OK with m..."



"...There. Now I can go to sleep. Good night."

"...So, um, does that mean that..."

"Shush. I'm going to sleep."

"No, but wait, you're just going to..."

"Sleep. Yes. Now. Good night."

"But wait a minute, how can we sleep now? I mean, didn't you... did we just.. are you... um... what just happened?"

"Good night, Matt."



"...Heh. Right. Good night."
