Kissing him back, Faye knew it had been a slightly silly worry and yet that one part of her that had still been on guard relaxed. She punctuated the end fo the kiss with another smaller one and sighed happily, resting her head on his chest. “So no showdowns in a darkly lit corridor, gotcha,” she joked. Despite the ease, she was also taking mental notes and adding them to her file. It would be extremely important as things progressed between them that she (and her body) understood very clearly the difference between Daggum and the others. And right now, every kiss, every caress, every hug created a tactile map that she could feel safe with.
“So… dinner later, but what about right now?” It felt so strange to just be able to do anything. “We could stay here and talk. Or take a walk about the station? I haven’t really spent anytime here, so I don’t know my way around fully.”
Dag squeezed her to him and said “Either way. The last time I was here there were still sections open to space. So don’t look to me to play tour guide, either.” and he laughed. “But we can go explore if you like. You’ve been on the Manhattan a while. Might be good to see somewhere else besides my hotel room.” and he let her go and said “But you lead. If I remember correctly, I much appreciated the view of you walking in front of me.” and he smiled and winked at her.
“Well then, let go get ourselves lost, and you can drink in the view all…” She took a step backwards. “You.” She spun on her heels spreading her hands out to the side in a flourish. “Like.” The heeled boots certainly made the saunter to the door that much more effective, but in her leather jacket and fitted garments, the shape of her athletic body was definitely not obscured. Faye couldn’t remember herself as ever being that flirty, but with Dag it felt strangely easier. Huh. Something else that was new.
As they left the hotel, Faye told him about her run in with the young Ensign Su and warned him that going out was putting her in the line of fire work-wise, but she suspected that Su passed along her message rather clearly. Still, the whole thing amused her.
“Now that things are calming down, I might actually get to start some of that command stuff,” Faye said, slipping her hand into his and testing out how walking hand-in-hand together felt. She wasn’t short for a Human female, by any means, but he certainly did tower above her. And yet, walking with him felt… cozy.
