Jim opened his door to a serious looking Spock.
Well, all right, he always looked serious. But this was more serious than usual. Er, Jim supposed.
“May I come in?”
It was on the tip of his tongue to say ‘go take a flying leap’ but of course what he actually did was stand back to let Spock inside.
He wore his all black professor’s uniform and it should not look as hot as it did. As he did. Obviously.
Jim had just take a shower and when the doorbell rang, he’d only bothered to pull on a pair of shorts he’d had since he was just out of high school. They weren’t in the best shape. He’d slung a towel around his neck and his hair still dripped down on to it.
“I have come to…” Spock stopped, seeming at a loss for words.
Jim didn’t bother to prompt him.
“I am aware that I am arrogant, coldly unfeeling, and-and bitchy as you said.”
Spock had struggled with that last part. Jim nearly smiled, but this was no laughing matter, after all.
“But…if there is anyone in this universe that I am not coldly unfeeling toward it is you.” Spock paused. “I am not certain I can control the arrogant part. It is difficult to change what I have always been.”
Jim did allow the tiniest bit of the corners of him mouth to upturn. “Admittedly you have reason to be arrogant.”
“Yes.” Spock looked startled. “I mean, no. I do not. As for b-bitchy, well—”
“Spock, I think, somewhere in there is an apology. Right?”
Spock straightened. “Yes, exactly.”
“And I’m guessing this is your way of saying you don’t want things to end between us.”
“Definitely not.” Spock took a step forward. “I feel a level affection for you unmatched to anyone else.”
Jim did smile then. “That’s about as close to a declaration of love as I’m going to get from you, I’m guessing.”
Jim laughed and pulled Spock close. “You’ve convinced me. I accept your unique apology.”
Spock leaned into his arms. “I am…gratified.”

I do love a groveling Spock. Mostly bc it’s always adorably awkward and you know it’s sincere.

Yep a groveling Spock is always A+

I imagine Spock probably pre-thought what he was going to say.
And Jim looking as he was…well, not even a Vulcan could remember it all, I’m guessing.
I have a feeling over their years together, both Spock and Jim will become well practiced in the art of apologizing! 🙂
Well done, as always!

Agreed definitely a lot of apologizing

I could be wrong. Years have passed. But I’m pretty sure it was YOU who introduced me to it. And a ton of others. It’s all your fault I fell in love with spirk and all these accompaniments.

I think that is correct lol
It’s one of the videos I was able to copy when I was able to copy them (I can’t anymore, I lost the technology) and I kept it as it’s simply awesome

Spock coming to Jim, with his proverbial hat in hand, begging to be forgiven is so him. You’ve really captured his voice here. Jim should have, or could have let him go on begging, but Jim is truly smitten by Spock. How could he not accept such a Spock apology and declaration of love!?! These two are just so cute. I’m thinking that next time Spock will act differently when he’s in the same situation that got Jim upset in this flash. I’m wondering just what happened that made Jim upset?!
Thank you for this flash.

Well we definitely know from Spock’s speech that Jim told Spock that he was arrogant, bitchy and coldly unfeeling, so yep, Jim was obviously pretty angry LOL

“I feel a level affection for you unmatched to anyone else.” ❤️
Spock is adorable and I loved his apology 🙂
