A/N: This is firstly for bringthefate . She wanted a elle/gambit fic for her promt... so there.. and I also decided that I would post it for my three ficlets that I need to complete for the comm. fic_variation. Hehehe... hope you like it bringthefate ! Sorry it took so long!
Gambit looked around. He made sure that his sun glasses were secured, and tugged a little at his tie. Wearing a monkey suit was not something he did for funs. He needed to look the part today, and only when he was sure to have fooled Elle's father, could he relax slightly.
Elle, walking next to him, noticed his uneasiness. She touched his arm with her hand and then playfully send him a blue lightning bolt. For a moment she could see him jump, but then he turned around to her, tilted his head and said. „And what exactly was that just now, cherry?“
Giggling childishly Elle commented, „Just a little something to make you relax.“
Her high heels were making click-clack noised, and except for those, no other sounds were heard around them. Gambit looked around again. Now a woman with short brown hair and a man with horn rimmed glasses passed them.
The man, he noticed, looked at him with a disapproving gaze. Gambit chanced a look at the woman, but then turned quickly when he heard Elle's slight 'humpf'.
He smirked one sided and said flirtingly „I was only looking to remember the faces, cherry, not for anything else.“
Elle didn't return his smirk, instead of that, she frowned and then told him „Well, don't look too much, that bitch can make you do anything she wants to!“ She grumbled something after that, but he didn't quite catch it.
„Oh, cherry, you know only you can make me do anything... After all, I am coming here with you just to meet your père. Would I ever do that for someone else?“ he asked her, tugging on that silly tie again.
„I'm sorry about that! Really... but daddy insisted that he wanted to meet the man that dared to deflower and marry his daughter, before he had a chance to wipe his memory clear of anything connected to me... and I quote 'in a very painful and agonizing way'. Quote end!“ she said as earnest and in a tone that suggested that it would be normal everyday life to her.
„Bonne... but after that cherry... you and me will go to Paris... and hopefully never set foot again in this crazy company...“ he said and wrinkled his nose as if smelling something disgusting. „I don't like the feeling of this place“ he said and looked around again. „I have the feeling like there are corpses in the basement...“
Elle smiled and replied playfully „Not corpses... only criminals!“
Gambit rolled his eyes at her, because he believed that even when it was in a playful tone, that his little devil was saying the truth. There probably were criminals in the basement. This company was absolutely crazy, and it was a wonder that she hadn’t turned out even crazier then she seemed sometimes, after having spent most of her life with them.
“I wonder if Daddy will allow me to go with you to Paris…” said Elle a little more thoughtful now.
Irritated Gambit huffed and said “It doesn’t matter what he wants or thinks… I am the world’s best thief. If he insists on locking you away, I will find a way to steal you back!” Gambit was after all confident in his skills.
Elle just giggled and snuggled closer to him, while walking. They rounded the corner, and her hold on him tightened. Gambit was determined to keep the woman he had found, and he sure as hell wasn’t going to give her up just because of Daddy. When they arrived at the office door, they both paused a moment. With the prior thought in mind, they both reached for the door-handle and opened it, they stepped through together.
