"Hot Tub Party, Part I"
OOC: Takes place after Lael & Dassa’s “Girl Talk”
((Officer’s Mess, USS Gorkon))
::Lael sighed and sipped her tea out the viewport. This was one of her favorite places to hide, especially at this time of night. Not too many people ventured here in the middle of the night. As though someone had heard her thoughts, the doors to the Mess parted to reveal Anjar. Their gazes locked and he smiled wanly in greeting before fetching a cup of coffee and moving to sit with her.::
Thoran: Mind if I sit?
Rosek: ::murmurs:: Not at all. Though I’ll warn you...I’m terrible company tonight.
Thoran: ::nods solemnly:: Me too to be honest.
Rosek: ::smiles wanly:: What a pair we make, huh? Dumped and miserable.
Thoran: ::grins wryly:: I’d hardly call it dumped since I never even got the chance to go on a date with her.
::She hesitated a moment before moving her chair around to sit beside him. He switched his cup of coffee to his other hand and hugged her tightly to him.::
Thoran: It’s going to be all right, you know.
Rosek: ::sighs:: I wish I could believe that.
Thoran: ::murmurs:: I’ll be here for you. No matter what happens, I won’t abandon you.
Rosek: ::smiles wanly:: Even if you have to carry me around my quarters?
Thoran: ::brushes a kiss against her temple:: Even then.
::Lael sat her tea down and wrapped her arms around his waist, leaning her head on his shoulder.::
Rosek: How did I get so lucky to have a friend like you?
Thoran: ::grins:: I’d say I’m the lucky one.
::Lael pulled back and their gazes met, her eyes then flickering to his lips. She couldn’t help but remember that chaste kiss on the beach. Curiosity had lingered since then about what it would be like...what he’d be like. No doubt it was the loneliness. It had been awhile since she’d been single without a way to fill the emotional ache that had taken up residence in her heart. Break-ups were always rough...but somehow this one was worse. Jansen had promised her the moon and the stars, then had ripped that promise away in an instant, leaving her heart weaker for it.::
::Anjar licked his lips nervously, laying a hand on her cheek. Slowly, he leaned in and brushed his lips against hers.::
::Lael sighed, leaning into the kiss, allowing it to take her over. She slid her hand to the nape of his neck, playing with the curls there as she slipped her tongue past his parted lips and pulled him closer.::
::His hands slid down, grasping her hips as he sighed softly into her mouth.::
::She pulled back and leaned her forehead against his to catch her breath, their gazes meeting.::
Thoran: ::murmurs:: I’ve wanted to do that since that day at the beach.
Rosek: ::swallows:: I can’t be your newest obsession, Anjar. I don’t want another relationship right now.
Thoran: ::nods:: You’re attractive and I like being with you. But it doesn’t have to be about anything you don’t want it to be about.
Rosek: ::murmurs:: Good.
::Without waiting for his response, she captured his lips in another kiss, deepening it further.::
