Oh that gave Cara an idea. “Maybe a little but I think it is more those things are a part of us already and help make us good at our jobs. So we wonna count that.” She squeezed his hand with a grin, “But I suppose I shoulda added readin’. I donna really do that for fun though, more because it’s relaxin’.” She gaze flowed over him from the other side of the table, “Sometimes, bad boys make the best good guys.”
Mardusk shook his head slightly and smiled. “Now now.. careful there. You give me looks like that while sayin’ things like that… I might start to think you like me just a little bit.” and he chuckled.
Cara leaned forward on one arm, her other hand still in his, a wickedly playful look on her face. Careful? Oh yeah she’d be careful, but sometimes the risk was worth it. And she felt like Gravel was worth the risk. “Now here I thought ya were observant, Gravel. If it’s just a ‘might’ let me clear that up for ya. I like you.”
Mardusk leaned forward, his height putting his face inches from hers. He looked at her for a long, drawn out moment and then grinned and said “Oh yeah? Prove it, Red…”
The look on her face turned serious. She’d gotten involved once, way too fast, and had gotten hurt. It showed on in her eyes, but it was fleeting. She stared right back at him, her voice soft, “I already did, I’m here aren’t I?” She kissed him then, sure but gently, for a long still moment, and then pulled back just a hair’s breath.
Mardusk smiled and said “Ok… I’ll take that as proof… for now.” and he leaned forward, gave her a quick peck, and then sat back. “But I reserve the right to resist that evidence numerous times in the future.” and he grinned and winked.
