It took me a few moments to pick myself up off the floor after the last time Faith slammed me into the wall. Face it Rupert, I told myself, you just aren't bouncing back the way you used to. I could only thank the gods for small mercies: I wasn't unconscious, and I waited until Faith left before I broke down. I didn't realise it was such a near-run thing. Now that the adrenalin wasn't keeping me buoyed any longer and I didn't have to save face, all I felt was weak, and sore. Very, very sore. I dragged myself over to the sofa and fell onto it.

'You're looking more than a little worse for wear,' I commented after I let myself back in. I was going to pay for this later, and I knew it. One glare would have told me that, if I hadn't known already. Yes, the day would come, but it hadn't arrived yet -- so the opportunity was just too irresistible to pass up.

'What's the matter, Rupert? Forget the safety word?'

'You really are going to be sorry,' I told Ethan, raising myself up on one elbow.

'I'm certain I will... But not today,' I said as I took a few steps closer to the sofa. 'I know you, and I knew you were going to be enough of a fool to let that girl go. Had to stick around long enough to make sure nothing happened to you.'

'And you were expecting... what? Gratitude? A thank you note?' I pulled myself up into a sitting position, holding onto my ribs. I think Faith must've cracked at least one of them when she kicked me, earlier.

'From you?' I snorted. 'You must be joking... except that you'd have to have a sense of humour to do that.'

I just glared at Ethan when he knelt down in front of me, his face only inches from mine. I remembered the kiss he gave me earlier, and my breath caught.

I looked at him, leaning toward me a bit, his lips slightly parted. I wondered if he had any notion of just how tempting he was being, how much of a tease. Probably not, I decided finally. If it had been me, and the situation was reversed, yes, it would have been very deliberate.

Well, what are you waiting for?

Oh gods, where did that thought come from?

Probably from the same place sense-memories remain long after we disavow them consciously. It sounds inane to try to explain it in words, maybe the feeling I would be trying to describe is too primitive for them: I love the way Ethan smells.

(Whether they realise it or not, everyone has a natural scent that clings to them, even right after they've gotten out of the bath. Some perfectly nice people smell awful to me. It's difficult for me to get close to them, or remain close to them for any period of time. Ethan Some people, I just want to get closer to... no matter how much I tell myself to stay away.)

All his muscles tighten when I reach around and put my hand on the back of his neck (how that must hurt him right now), his teeth clinched, closed tight, when I press my lips to his. they open to me passively at first, his lips a small, startled 'o' -- as if he's the least bit surprised that he would.

Even after all these years, Rupert still wants seducing. It is rather adorable, actually.

I put my palm flat against his chest, a halting gesture, even though my tongue is reacquainting me with the taste of him as eagerly as his is, probing me. I can feel his heart beat, rapid, staccato, and instead of pushing him away, reach around and pull him closer to me, heart beat to heart beat, arms entwined.

Our kiss deepens, and lingers. I don't know how long it lasted - forever would not have been long enough to recompense my long exile - but, when I unbuckled Rupert's belt, and started on the button of his trousers, he balked. 'What's the matter now, Rupert?' I asked as my fingers drifted downward, tracing the evidence of his arousal. 'You can't claim you don't want it.'

'I don't... I can't...' I stammered.

But I didn't stop him.

'Your words may be saying 'no,' but the rest of you is practically begging for it,' I told him, stroking him through his trousers. 'Do shut up and let that do the talking for you.'

Ethan's touch was still magic, even when there was no actual magick involved. His fingertips, moving so confidently over familiar territory, felt like he was setting me on fire. Looking into his eyes, I knew that he knew the way I burned for him, still. Worse than the wanting was knowing that.

As much as I hurt, and as tired as I was, I grabbed Ethan by the front of his silk shirt, balling the fabric in my fist, and shoved him away from me with as much force as I could muster. 'Get off,' I told Ethan, trying to sound cold.

The shove surprised me, a bit. I didn't think Rupert would protest quite so much, as excited as he already was. I collected myself, out of the ungainly sprawl where I'd landed, raised myself up into a sitting position, most of my weight resting on one hand.

'What do you think I've been trying to do?' I asked with a small laugh, looking at Rupert quizzically. If anything, pushing me around got him even more aroused than he had been, before.
