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 himself really, he shouldn't have reached for that button. But then she kept talking and unlike him, when Grace kept talking things somehow got better. Now it wasn't everything that was stopping, it was everything that was in the way that was stopping.

He wanted to tell her that he was't asking. Or that she'd already said yes. Or something to that effect as long as it didn't sound...well, forced. Troy's long lectures on how to talk to women were beginning to feel more like a burden than a skill and for some reason he couldn't get the thought of cats out of his head.

He leaned forward and brushed his lips against hers, just briefly. She may have said as much, but he still wasn't one hundred percent sure that she meant it and he wanted to give her as many opportunities to get out if she wanted to. Even now, with his hand moving slowly down her shirt, he hesitated after every button he unhooked just in case. When there were no more buttons on her top half he hovered over the fastening of her jeans.

"Last chance," he offered in a breathy whisper.

  • Stop it. Stop it now. - Grace, Sat Jan 31 23:57
    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... 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
        • The Climb - Leo, Wed Feb 4 03:21
          She didn't say no. That was what he focused on, even as she avoided answering his questions which was twice as frustrating than she seemed to think he was. In one uncharacteristically smooth... more
          • in the darkness - Grace, Wed Feb 4 04:05
            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
            • Mine. - Leo, Wed Feb 4 04:54
              "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
              • Happiness is winning - Grace, Wed Feb 4 05:40
                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
                  • Later - Grace, Wed Feb 4 06:28
                    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
