Gravel smiled and reached down and gently and simply lifted her off the ground and back onto the barrel. “Yeah… I know.” he said with a grin. He looked at her for moment, and then leaned in and kissed her; gently… but there was meaning behind it.
She grinned, resting her hands on his arms and then took his hand again after she was firmly back on the barrel. She grinned, “Do ya…” Her eyes went wide when he kissed her and then closed. She kissed him back just as gently, electricity raced down her spine, across her shoulders, down her arms, to where her hands were held in his. And her stomach felt funny and it had nothing to do with space-sickness.
They held the kiss for a long minute before very slowly parting. As Gravel’s eyes opened, he smiled and said “Um… yeah… so that just happened, huh?” and he closed his fingers around her hand and stood up, beckoning her to come with him.
Cara’s breath gave away exactly how that kiss affected her. “Uhh....yea…yeah..it did.” For a moment she shyly looked every where but at him and then she squeezed his hand and looked up into his amazing green eyes, “Yeah it did.” This time she got off the barrel on purpose and started walking with him.
“You know… it’s time like this I am pissed I live on a ship. Big as this thing is, there’s just so much to do without resorting to the holodeck.” He put her hand in the crook of his arm and then covered it with his other. “But maybe we could go get a drink? There’s another place that opened besides Mike’s… bit more… well… ‘date’ like.” and he looked down at her. “Because I’d like to spend more time with you tonight, if you are up for that?”
Cara slipped her other hand onto his arm and under his hand as they walked. “I’d like that. I’m not ready to end our evening, either.”
