Author's Note: Okay, I know I said I wanted to branch out AWAY from Castle lol but one of the FFA pairings was Faith/Castle
Kate had reluctantly gotten used to Rick going back to his old Playboy ways after the bombing. As she'd told Ryan and Esposito, maybe the blast had reminded him to carpe diem
more in life, but the two partners had looked rather skeptical about that explanation.
She was just coming back from grabbing another cup of coffee before tackling some of her backlog to find a statuesque brunette in Castle's chair. Looking about twenty five, she sat there, scratching away at one of the notebooks Kate knew were scattered all over the department. She was clad in well worn leather pants, which was another point of envy for the detective, and a tank top that showcased some serious scrapes and scratches on her arms.
“Um, can I help you?” she asked, bewildered as the other woman glanced up and smiled.
“Oh, hi, you must be Beckett. Um, Richie told me to tell you Espo took him to get cleaned up after they took photos of the injuries and that the nice lil Irish boy would be right back as soon as I finish my statement here,” she explained.
“Statement?” Kate parroted dumbly, just staring at the younger woman, coffee in hand.
“Uh, yeah, Beckett- Castle just came in with Miss Lehane here. Apparently, they were attacked in an attempted mugging after dinner, so they both came here to report it,” Kevin explained as Faith signed her name at the bottom and handed the pad back to him.
“Thanks, Irish,” she said, grinning as he blushed slightly, though she frowned when she caught sight of Rick coming out of the men's room, Javier right behind him with the digital camera. Faith ran over, pouting at the look of multiple butterfly bandages on his cheek and arm, not to mention the rapidly darkening black eye. “I told you to duck,” she told him with a smirk.
Castle shrugged. “I bobbed when I should've weaved- sorry.”
Faith sauntered in closer, her eyes hooded as she grabbed his loosely knotted tie and tugged. “Not to worry- I know a great
way to help you feel better,” she purred, her lips kissingly close to his.
“Esposito, did you get Castle's statement already?” Kate demanded a little sharper than usual.
Javier mentally winced. “Yeah, Beckett, I did.”
“Goody! That means I can go get started scratching that H & H itch. You ready for me, Rick?” Faith asked with a saucy grin as she used her continued hold on Castle's tie to pull him towards the elevator.
“H & H?” Kate wondered, seeing green in her vision for some reason.
“Oh, horny and hungry,”Faith replied, turning to face the three detectives. “Maybe you can come join us next time, Kate,” she said, grinning as the doors closed on Castle's rapidly glazing vision at the thought, while the two boys spit out their coffee and Kate started blushing.What can I say? I have a weakness for leather pants and whomever's in them,
she thought to herself as she went to busy herself with paperwork.
