24 - Brittany House/Mark Holden - something to keep her

Title: something to keep her
Fandom: 24
Characters: Brittany House, Mark Holden
Prompt: 3. I'll always thank the Lord when my working day is through, I get my sweet reward to be alone with you.
Word Count: 1040
Rating: PG
Summary: Athletes are often superstitious. Brittany and Mark have their own rituals.
Author's Notes: Title is from Rickie Lee Jones' "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963." Futurefic by a couple of months, may possibly be alternate universe or may turn out to be canon. It depends on if I can convince the skeptic in me that Mark would actually do this sort of thing. This isn't really obvious fluff, but I love it because it's so very them -- understated, simple, awkward, not obvious at all. So, it'd be fluff if you were them. And it's just cute.
