Pairing/Characters: Cpl Hicks/Pvt Drake (Riggs)
Rating: FRM for language and non-graphic m/m sex
Summary: When he heard those words, he gave up
Warnings: AU, established couple
Notes: Why does Hicks yell this? If you watch the movie and I have countless times, Hick's yells it as Ripley arrives with the APC vehicle to get them out of the colony. Both Drake and Vasquez are still fighting the Aliens but Hicks only yells this to Drake. Since he only yells this to Drake, I have the feeling that there's more than soldierly concerns going on. Why? Because as the creator of this universe, I can do stuff like that. Beside, this is just another example of my twisted imagination... I am watching Aliens as I type this...
Disclaimer: I don't own any of these characters. Love 'em, wish I did but...
