Three more six word drabbles

This week's words were (at first look) somewhat scarily tough and I really thought I would struggle. However, I actually managed to come up with three. It wasn't that I deliberately tried to write more than one - the non-fannish one was the first one I wrote - rather that the two fannish ones just demanded I write them as well.

The words were:
Absorption
Arrangement
Ex
Prediction
Qualified
Trustee

THE PROFESSIONALS

PREDICTION


An ex-detective and an ex-mercenary. It wasn't exactly a match made in heaven. However, George Cowley made the prediction they would turn out to be his best team; if anyone was qualified to make that judgement, it was him.

A year later he was proven to be correct and not just in their working lives. Their absorption in one another was so intense and so complete, he had to make arrangements for them to share a flat.

Fifteen years later, as their trustee, he made the arrangements for them to share a grave. It was what they would have wanted.

SAPPHIRE & STEEL

NEED


Even Steel couldn't fail to notice Silver's absorption in him. However, given he had no intention of becoming another of Silver's ex-lovers, he ignored the attention.

It appeared, however, that They had other ideas.

//We are qualified to make the prediction. You need Silver.//

"I don't need anyone." Steel showed his annoyance by refusing to follow the usual arrangement of using telepathy when talking with Them.

//As your trustees, we -//

"My what?"

//Trustees. Did you not read the papers you signed?//

"Of course I did. I just -" //Oh, very well. I will invite him to have dinner with me.//

//Good.//

ORIGINAL FICTION

NOT ODD

When we split up, my ex made the prediction that as he was a qualified solicitor, we would meet again. Given he was named as a trustee in my father's will and my father had no intention of changing that, if was a safe prediction to make.

In fact three months after we had parted, we made an arrangement to meet up once a month. My best friend thought it was strange, but given we hadn't fallen out of love, it was just that his absorption with his job became too much for me, it didn't seem odd to us.
