Go on, go on
Leave me breathless
Come on


“I think someone has a crush on youuuu!” His breathe crept along the surface of her neck, producing a tiny shiver. “Either that or he fancies the tight denim you’re wearing, m’dear.”

Well, that was just tough shit for Michael, because Lucy had always worn tight denim, and always would. But, admitting that to His Phantomness would score one point for the menfolk of the relationship. Which relationship, you may ask? Why, the pretend one ... that whole husband/wife nonsense. If they had really been married, she'd have shared the bed for one .. and probably been a lot happier. But it was only a sham. For how long she did not know.

The daylight's fading slowly
The time with you is standing still
I'm waiting for you only
The slightest touch and I feel weak



"Michael knows I'm married. Surely people in California obey the laws of God." Sighing, she absently nuzzled his neck, looking for all the world like a tired, but adored, young wife. Caleb's caveman achoring of her waist did nothing to dispell that image as it was. She wondered, though, what it might be like to experience an active courtship.

"Alright, folks. Meg, Christine ... front and center. I'd like to do basic blocking for Angel of Music."




I cannot lie
From you I can not hide
I'm losing will to try
Can't hide it
Can't fight it


Her alarm clock was possessed! Why else would it riiiiiiiing to life at six instead of eight? And when the hell was she going to get completely used to the decadently lazy way of life out here? Lucy stared at the ceiling, cursing silently because now she was wide awake. Nnnnnnng. Dagnabbit! Expelling a breath, she threw back the covers and swung her legs down onto the floor -- rest of her following obediantly.

So go on, go on
Come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
'Till I can't deny this
Loving feeling
Let me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah come on



Sliding a silk robe over her cute and equally silk pajama set, the redhead very quietly cracked the bedroom door and peered out. House seemed incredibly quiet. Good. The kitchen would be hers alone for a little while. Bare feet snuck out of the room, padding softly down the short hallway and ducked into aforementioned room. Flicking on the overhead light, she withdrew a pan, several eggs, toast, juice from the icebox, and a few other assorted items that would nicely fill up an omelet.

And if there's no tomorrow
And all we have is here and now
I'm happy just to have you
You're all the love I need somehow


Thankfully it was a Sunday, not even Raymond would violate the sanctity of this day ... not until the last few weeks of rehearsal anyway, and the performances themselves. It had been almost a year since she'd stepped inside a church, long before her grandfather and Caleb had conspired to demolish the foundations of her life. Alright, fine. So the assessment wasn't fair. Life wasn't fair! Lucy winced automatically, hoping she hadn't upset any particular Deities. Ok, one.

It's like a dream
Although I'm not asleep
I never want to wake up
Don't lose it
Don't leave it



Grrrrrr. Fingers splayed against the counter, supporting her weight so the girl could glare down at the stove for a moment and spend some of the irritation that had been building up all week. Men! What was it about them that produced rutting pigs at the sight of a skirt? Or, in particular, her skirt. Michael had been extremely attentive so far, and Lucy wasn't going to lie to herself and pretend it wasn't flattering. But Caleb, rather than ponying up and admitting he thought little of their arrangement, had been running hot and cold. One minute he was whispering jokes at her, the next he was glowering from behind the figurative mask he insisted on donning.

So go on, go on
Come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
'Till I can't deny this
Loving feeling
Let me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah come on


Alright, alright. Sternly turning her attention back to breakfast, she began scrambling the eggs in preparation for the omelettes, adding several more in case Caleb woke up hungry. Why she was being concilatory was beyond her at this point. But it was Sunday. Taking out her frusteration on the food, both omelettes ended up being done more quickly than she would have expected, along with buttered toast and glasses of orange juice. Delicious and nutricious! Tastes just like chicken.

So go on, go on
Come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
'Till I can't deny this
Loving feeling
Make me long for your kiss


In just a few minutes the table was set, Lucy being very determined to put aside all their problems and enjoy the morning meal together. Hmm. Plate, glass, utensils ... perfect. From the table it was a short journey (about six or seven feet) to the couch where Caleb spent the nights. A quick peek displayed the man sprawled on his back, eyes closed in slumber, blanket mangled in a heap near his feet. Well, at least he'd tossed on a pair of sweat pants before going to sleep. Right? Settling down next to the prone form, she reached out and brushed the hair away from his brow. And was taken completely by surprise when his arms suddenly tightened around her, and drug her down against him. "Morning" Huh? Of course, the kiss that followed tossed every coherent thought out of her head. Ok, so maybe he wasn't asslep.

Go on, go on
Come on leave me breathless
Go on, go on
Come on leave me breathless
Go on, go on
Come on leave me breathless
Go on, go on
