Jim was just falling asleep in bed when…

“Fuck!”

He jumped up, yanking his naked legs away from the ice cubes that had just been plastered to them.

Spock stared wide eyed and remorseful at him.

“I…”

“How the hell did you get your feet that cold?”

“I apologize.”

And then Spock was moving to get out of Jim’s bed.

Jim put his hand on Spock’s arm.

“No. Please. Stay.”

“It was not my intention to disturb you. I was finished meditating and…wished to join you.”

“I know. Stay.”

Spock returned to lying beside him.

“I want you here.”
