"That was a nice shower wasn't it?" I whispered as I wrapped Tara and I both in a towel. Holding her in my arms for a few moments, just relaxing in the heated bathroom.
"It was, I don't think I've ever felt so clean," Tara grinned and turned her head to kiss my neck.
"Tara?" I whispered. I had something to say but I wasn't sure how to say it, if I should just blurt it out or if I should take it slow and just ignore my thoughts.
"You can ask me or tell me anything, Willow," she whispered in my ear, nibbling on it softly. I moaned, deep in my throat, at the drop of a hat this blonde-haired blue-eyed goddess could turn me on to the point where I would rather lock us both away and ravish her all day.
"Okay," I said after a few moments, letting go of her so I could turn her to look at her.
"I mean it Willow, anything," she said again, and I believed her.
"I don't know what to say, or well how to actually say this, I, umm, I have to ask you something, and I'm not sure I want the answer so I'm just going to say it I guess, though I haven't really started to say it and it's taking a lot of words to say it..." I sighed, I couldn't get it out. Tara chuckling brought me back to life, and, well, made me take a breath.
"Willow, just say it," Tara smiled and kissed me softly.
"Please don't hurt me again," I whispered lowering my head, my eyes filling with tears. This felt so right, it felt like it's where I was always supposed to be, it was nice but I was scared, I was scared to get hurt again. Tara had torn out my heart, shredded it into a thousand pieces then ground it into dust when she was done, and now here we were three years later, together like nothing had been between us in the past.
"Oh Willow," and she wrapped me in her arms and held me like there wasn't going to be another day, and I honestly believe I finally felt her heart, for the first time in a long time, I could feel her every part of her loving me. "I swear I will do everything in my power not to ever hurt you again," she finally whispered in my ear kissing me on the side of the face ever so softly.
"So what would we like to do for the rest of the day ?" Tara asked me with a smile as she walked around my apartment in a towel, a beautiful smirk on her face. I sat on the couch in a teeshirt and my underwear watching her walk around like she was at home, it made me smile from ear to ear.
"I don't know what do you think?" I asked with a raised eyebrow slowly standing and walking towards her. I reached out and looped my finger in the edge of her towel, it instantly fell to the ground, leaving her in her birthday suit in front of me. She blushed slightly and smirked at the same time, she was so conflicting sometimes, she would get shy and nervous, yet the things she had in her mind drove me wild.
"I think maybe now that you have me naked in front of you that I'm getting kinda chilly," Tara smirked even more and I quietly moaned to myself. "So I really think you should maybe warm me up." She nodded her head slowly.
"I think maybe you're right, I wouldn't want you to get sick now would I?" I smiled and walked closer to her pulling her in for a melting kiss, I ran my fingers through her damp hair, holding her tightly to my mouth as I ran my tongue over her lips, then dipped it in her mouth for a taste.
"Mmmm," she moaned in my mouth tilting her head slightly, we broke apart and she was panting about as hard as I was. "Getting warmer," she smiled and leaned into kiss me again, this time it was a lot harder, and faster, we moved to the wall, I pressed her into it, moving my knee in between her legs and pressing up at the exact moment she thrust forward. I moaned loudly when she bit my lip trying to keep from screaming out. A few moments like this and she was near climax we rocked back and forth against the door, and right as she was about to come someone knocked, scaring us both into jumping, when we jumped her centre pressed against my thigh with such force it sent her crashing over the edge, she soaked my leg and screamed my name, both of us panting and gasping for air, we had forgotten someone had knocked...
That is until we heard the voice screaming down the door.
"WILLOW IF YOU DON'T ANSWER THE GODDAMNED DOOR I'M GONNA FUCKING BUST IT DOWN!" and it was Faith, I'm guessing Buffy was close behind her, and she sounded worried.
Tara's eye's went wide yet her legs were still too shaky to walk, or run into the bedroom to get clothes on.
"I MEAN IT WILLOW! WE HEARD SCREAMING ARE YOU ALRIGHT AT LEAST ANSWER!" and now they sounded extremely worried so I answered, through my giggles.
"I'm ALRIGHT!" I yelled back hoping maybe they would get the point.
"OPEN UP!" and of course they didn't get the point, too pig-headed to just leave me be for a little while.
"OKAY OKAY!" I yelled back, my eyes wide this time, I walked to the door and slowly pulled it open a few inches, Tara was wrapped back in the towel, headed towards the bedroom.
I was watching her walk away when they yanked the door open and charged in, their eyes caught sight of me first, Buffy slapped a hand over them right away, but Faith not so much, then Faith caught sight of a pretty much naked Tara running into the bed room, and instead of being a great friend and walking away she smirked and turned her head trying to get a better look, she only turned back to me when she heard my growl.
"So, Red?" Faith asked instantly smirking like the cat that caught the canary.
"Yes FAITH?!" My voice was rather high as I glared at the both of them.
"Umm can we find out what was going on in a moment, like maybe after Willow puts some clothes on?" And I finally realized that the rather quiet Buffy was still in the room too.
"Good idea," I smiled and ducked away quickly, I loved my friends but a see-through white tee and underwear that weren't much better wasn't something I wanted them to see me in.
"What do I do what do I do?!" Tara asked pacing back and forth with Zoey in my bedroom.
"Just keep cool, it's okay baby," I smiled and planted a soft but quick kiss on her lips.
"Gawd I didn't want to meet your friends this soon! They hate ME!" She cried softly her hands shaking... " and especially after what they just heard!" and I couldn't help it I started to laugh softly.
"It'll be okay I swear to you, now let me get dressed and we'll go meet the two other women in my life," I smiled and she finally relaxed slightly, giving me a hug before I threw on some clothes.
Tara and I walked hand in hand up to the living room from my bed room after I got dressed, Zoey walked between our legs. Faith and Buffy were on the couch, they had gotten out the coffee maker and made a pot of coffee which they were now enjoying, there were two other cups of coffee on the table with cream and sugar on the side.
"We weren't sure what the other person that was here took in their coffee so we just left it black," Buffy said with a smile and looked at Tara as we walked into the living room.
"Buffy, Faith?" And they both looked at me with smiles. "This is Tara, Tara this is Faith and Buffy," I introduced them with smiles, Buffy stood instantly, her ears were slightly red, I'm guessing she was remembering what was going on earlier.
"Nice to meet you Tara," Buffy smiled and shook Tara's hand and I smiled from ear to ear, I was glad to see Buffy giving her a fair shot.
Faith didn't stand right away though, not until I watched Buffy kick her in the foot, then she stood. "Hi," Faith ground her teeth as she shook Tara's hand.
"N...nice to mee...meet you as well," Tara stuttered for the first time in goddess only knows how long.
"Soooooooooooo," Buffy grinned and looked at me with a raised eyebrow.
"Yes, we were doing what you thought we might be doing, no I wasn't being killed, yes we had a great time and again yes we are together," I answered everything before anything could actually be said, and Faith finally burst out laughing.
"You're getting good Red, you're getting real good," Faith laughed and sat back on the couch relaxing slightly.
"Oh and this is Zoey!" I smiled and pat the whimpering dog on the head, making sure I scratched behind her ears. And before they could say anything Zoey was up and in Faith's lap instantly licking her all over the face. Tara's eye's went wide with horror and she leapt after the dog. But she came to a screeching halt when Faith started making dog noises and baby talking to Zoey as she scratched her stomach and back and head.
"I think she likes you, but I am so sorry," Tara blushed and looked to the ground.
"It's okay Blondie, she's a cutie," Faith smiled up at Tara, and for a moment I was beyond happy, everyone seemed to be fine, but then Faith realized who she was in front of and who she was talking to, and she started grinding her teeth once again, yet she didn't stop petting Zoey.
"Soooooooo are you two up to anything today?" Buffy asked and before we could answer she started speaking again. "Other then having extremely loud sex against your front door?" And I thought for a second Tara was going to crawl under the couch and never come out.
I laughed along side of Buffy and Faith. "We're never gonna live it down baby," I whispered to Tara who was hiding her head in the place between my shoulder and neck.
