Stop it. Stop it now.

The lights went down into a single candle and they were very much alone together. Grace felt a pang of disappointment as all her work was overtaken by the dark, but then his arms were around her again and she decided one candle wasn’t too bad. She had offered him the chance to talk, just to hear the sound of his voice and would have easily ignored any words he actually said, but not talking, she found was also starting to be very nice. For a while she’d been second guessing, worried that if they were quiet together, it would be awkward. It usually was. But now his mind wasn’t filled with words, and her thoughts were less tangled because of it.

Cats. The thought was definitely hers this time, it was that random. Every cat that she’d known seemed absolutely love the idea of getting petted. Grace had never been much for touching without limits, but she was starting to see the appeal now. It was playful, and soothing and encouraging all at once. A thousand words and a million feelings boiled down into a light stroke. She wondered if there was anything to that scratching behind the ears thing too. For some stupid reason her blouse was prevent her from getting the full effect.

He must had heard her thoughts, because he had already slipped off a button, then went and ruined everything by talking.

Not just talking, but babble. She nodded as politely as she could for a while, just to hear the sound of his voice, but he was going on way too long and he was starting to get that fluttery, over thinking sound to it. She wasn’t even sure what he was saying anyway, only that it was getting in the way of the whole petting thing they were doing and that she wanted more of.

“Okay you need to stop now. “ she said at last and kissed him in that way that usually shut him up. She cradled his head in her hands, one thumb stroking the ear that he always complained felt funny.

“And this” she said after a moment, tugging at his shirt “This also needs to stop. Like now. It’s in the way.” Any moment now, she was sure, he would revert to the Leo who was always in control, the one who thought things out and kept them from just jumping in with everything. There were probably rules and protocols and discussions about all this. She wanted none of that. The thought of him kissing that bit of her shoulder, and the neck, and everywhere had suddenly occurred to her and the petting and just the full on feeling of being with him it was the single best idea to ever enter her brain. If he didn’t act on it, if he thought their way out, she felt sure she would explode.

“Thought you said, you wanted to go dancing.” he said, or she thought he said, at one point. She grinned at him “I did.“ she answered, then made a dramatic little surprised gasp “Are you asking me to dance with you , Hardy Boy?”

    "Ah. Well there is something I can do!" he grinned. The feeling that he'd ruined the moment, if it was a moment they were trying to have, still lingered on the tips of his fingers. It was best that... more

        When she told him to stop he thought for sure that she meant everything. The date, the plan, the stars, everything. It was just like her to turn things sour when they were going so well. Leo blamed... more

          She leaned away just a fraction and looked at him with a tilted head. Was he serious? How many ways could she say yes before he got the message. And for him...well, she was pretty certain that... more

              His voice seemed to be coming from everywhere. She shut her eyes again, took a breath and focused. Something was touching her and she flinched before her mind made the connection. “Yeah.” she said,... more

                "Yeah." His voice was lower than usual, a growl lurking in the back of his throat that hadn't been there before. He kept her covered with his arms, with her head resting against his shoulder and the... more

                  She shifted, one of her hands finding one of his and linking their fingers. He was here, she was safe and happy ( she hadn’t realized she’d been unhappy until now). Outside, she knew, things would... more

                    Three words never seemed so important and they weren't even the ones that all the stories made such a big fuss of. It didn't matter. They had come from her lips, in her voice and she meant them. That ... more

                      She moved once more, to nuzzle at his neck and curl up against him. She'd been about to ask him what they did now, but his breath, warm and steady against her ear suggested now was not the time for... more
