He wasn’t sure when they went beyond kissing, but it was something that had needed to happen for a long time now. In the back of his mind, something whispered about age differences, their status as teammates and assorted other nonsense. But it was all useless babble. Like thinking. If he had allowed himself to think, he would have wondered that she seemed to know just what he wanted and his deathlist would have gotten that much longer.

As far as pretending to know more than she did went, Orion was a professional. It didn't matter to her that in reality she had no idea what she was doing or if anything she was doing was right. In her mind she was an expert on the subject of Bradley Bryant. He brought them together and only when she gasped did it dawn on him she might not be as experienced as she implied.

The rush of breath that escaped her lips surprised her, much more than the action that caused it. For the first time she looked at him and the knot of guilt surfaced again. But she remembered every fight, every time he'd turned his back on her and all the frustration he caused and instinct took over. Whether it was part of her largely unexplored abilities or something else she didn't know but as their desperation ignited flames that burned themselves out and took all of that anger with them, she held it there. That look in his eyes, smug and satisfied, was the best thing she'd ever seen.

He was swept up in the intensity. It was as though every argument, every frustration they’d been dancing around for the past few years was summed up and released in one pent up burst of moment and while was what he had wanted it, he wasn't sure it was what he should have done. He pulled away, breathing hard, looking at her in a new way.

Her feet slid back into her shoes and she pulled the skirt of her dress down to where it belonged. The moment had been...intense but now he was looking at her strangely. Worried that she'd done something wrong, (how was she supposed to know?) she busied herself by trying to free her trapped heel.

"What are you?" he asked. He'd heard of Veelas, same as any red-blooded boy had, but there was no way Veelas were that intense. Not in the best of his dreams. It wasn't right though. He sounded like he was accusing her.

She didn't understand the question really, the 'what' part especially. She was the same as she'd always been and that could only be one thing.

"I'm a Thestral," she replied with a shrug.

He pulled himself together and kissed her again.

"Okay...good talk. Just...okay."

"Okay," she nodded. She escaped the pen his arms had created, straightened her shoulders and fluffed her curls. Then she remembered she was drunk and was very certain she should continue being drunk until the tingling in her legs wore off. "Drink?" she suggested, but she was already half way to the door with every intention of propping herself up at the bar, regardless of his plans. Unless, of course, he wanted to do that again.

        Drinks. Drinks were good. He nodded and held the door open for her to go through first. He made a point to walk to the other end of the bar, to avoid looking suspicious. It was, unfortunately the... more
