Summary: His Black Magic Woman

For the record: I do not own, nor do I claim ownership of characters or concepts from Battlestar Galactica or the Song Black Magic Women


Billy gazed once again at the vision of beauty seated across from him, his mouth edging upwards in an unconscious smile as he contemplated the woman across from him.


Got a black magic woman
I got a black magic woman
Yes, I got a black magic woman


Billy caught slight movement out of the corner of his eyes, but he ignored it as he contemplated the lovely dark skinned lady in front of him, drinking in her every line, her every movement eagerly.

Got me so blind I can't see
But she's a black magic woman
And she's tryin' to make a devil out of me


He never noticed as Roslin and Adama finally found something they could agree on, as with various smiles and expressions of exasperated amusement they communicated one simple concept, young love.

Don't turn your back on me baby
Don't turn your back on me baby
Yes, don't turn your back on me baby


Dualla looked up at him swiftly for a moment, then glanced blushing at the papers in front of her and Billy wondered what made her blush so, what made her keep her face averted?

You're messin' around with your tricks
Don't turn your back on me baby
'cause you might just break up my magic stick


Exasperated, Roslin nudged Billy's arm and he started, his paperwork flying across the room. Babbling apologies and blushing he tried to pick the papers back up, only to bang heads with Dualla as they both tried to pick the same paper up.

You got your spell on me baby
You got your spell on me baby
Yes, you got your spell on me baby




Billy looked up slightly startled as he heard exasperated groans from Roslin and Adama, he saw the amused tolerant smiles lining their faces, Tighs rolling eyes and wondered what had set them off. He shrugged; he would find out sooner or later.

You're turning my heart into stone
I need you so bad, magic woman, I can't leave you alone

Billy smiled shyly at Dualla as they left the room, trying to gather his courage, to get past his shyness, to ask her out.

Yes, I need you so bad
Well, I need you darling
Yeah, I need you darling


A gruff voice interrupted him before he managed to get more than a stutter out, “Oh for Kobol's sake, just ask her out, you're blocking the corridor”

Yes, I want you love me
I want you love me
Whoa, I want you love me, ah


Billy watched shocked as Tigh walked down the corridor, his muttered “Young love!” not registering, how had Tigh known? He hadn't said it yet!

Whoh, yeah
Oh, whoa, baby
Yes, I need your love


Then he noticed Roslin shaking, and grew worried, “Madame President, you are shaking, do you need to see the doctor?”

“No, I'm quite well” Roslin managed to force out, despite the gales of laughter that threatened to overcome her, his face! She would have to thank Tigh for that one.

Oh, I need your love so bad
I want you love me

“When you find your courage” Dualla grabbed him, pulling him forward into a searing kiss “the answer is yes”

Stunned, Billy watched open mouthed As Dualla walked away, yes she was a black magic woman alright, and he was under her spell.

He couldn't think of anywhere he would rather be.
