Inspired by Chris Evans being “Sexiest Man” recently. I thought this idea would be fun and I hope you do too!
Sexiest Man on Earth
That’s what the headline read. For a second Jim thought he must be getting punked. But as he glanced up from his PADD to the puffed up display his brother was doing Jim realized that it was legit.
“Are you kidding me?”
Sam grinned. “Pretty cool, right?”
Jim snorted. “Cool isn’t the word I’d use.”
“What word would you use?”
“That’s two words,” Spock murmured helpfully from beside him.
Jim shot his husband a look. “Right you are, babe.”
Sam was undaunted. “You’re just jealous.”
“How the hell did they choose you anyway? You pay for it?”
That was his mother. She was in the kitchen working on her apple pie for the Thanksgiving dinner they were all at the farmhouse to have.
Jim and Spock had arrived a short time ago. Sam had arrived the day before, apparently, and had been waiting for Jim to arrive to announce his news.
“Well come on, Mom. Sam the sexiest man on Earth.” Jim rolled his eyes. “He’s not even the sexiest man in this house.”
“Ha ha. Aren’t you funny?” Sam retorted. “You want some wine?”
“I think I’d better get drunk. Sure.”
“No, thank you.”
Sam shrugged. “For your information they approached me in my laboratory. Said I had been nominated.”
“Who’d nominate you?”
“Jim! Be nice to your brother,” his mother said. “Sam is a beautiful boy. Just like you. You’re both handsome men.”
“You know,” Sam said. “You’re the hero of the universe. Known for saving millions—”
“Billions,” Spock said.
Jim smiled at him.
“Do you really begrudge me this one little honor?” He handed Jim the glass of wine.
Jim blew out a breath. “Yeah, okay, whatever.”
“Gracious as ever, Jimmy.” Sam’s communicator blipped. “That’ll be my wife. She’s on her way.”
He stepped into the hallway and then another room.
Jim grimaced. “Do you think he’s sexy, Spock?”
“He is not unpleasant to look at.”
Spock nodded. “Of course there is a however.”
“He has merely been named sexiest man on Earth. You will recall you aren’t even normally on Earth. Not for any length of time.”
Jim smiled. “That’s true.”
Spock inclined his head. “I submit that you are the sexiest man in the universe.”
“Okay, you are so getting lucky.”
“Being your husband, I am already quite fortunate.”
Winona snorted from the kitchen. “You two may be the sexiest men, but Spock wins husband of the year.”
Jim laughs. “I will drink to that!”
