Ze Cocktail Partay Aftermath!

[Sometimes, things work out perfectly well.

They'd managed to successfully say goodbye to their hosts, upholding an incredibly professional appearance at least until they left the building. He might have snuck in a few touches of his hand against Riza's over his arm on the way home, and the conversation took on a much more relaxed air.

He paused just outside her apartment, glancing up-- and then back at her trying to gauge the mood because he really wasn't sure if it was something she still wanted to do. This was a big deal, even if it was just tea.]

Here we are...

[ On the other hand, this was all very new for Riza, and each ounce of physical attention, she wanted to do again and again. Every subtle movement only made the flames inside her burn white hot, that by the time Roy pulled away from her kiss, his name mingled with sounds of ecstasy as he had her coming with a distinct kind of pleasure. Indeed, a different experience.

With his forehead against hers, she gripped tight on his back, his shoulders, she bit her lip hard, only allowing whimpers to pass. And then, the look she gave him was wet, and her lips parted to release hitched breaths, as she came undone around him.

Soon, she was on her way to steady her breathing, her limbs finally releasing all of their tension, her leg sliding off of Roy's waist and allowing her weight to rest heavily on her bed. Her hands still lingered about him, nuzzling his face and letting her lips just brush whimsically. She figured he might feel just as spent as she did, and soon her arms were around him -- not constricting, so as to allow him to lie down if he wanted to.

Riza hasn't forgotten that she said she would give him a "fair evaluation", but that can wait until she has recovered her breath -- at the soonest. ]

[ To be able to look at Roy like this means so much to her. He means the world to her. More than once, Riza might have allowed herself to some fantasy. At the least, now she can say that the reality is much better than fleeting thoughts.

She held his gaze, briefly wondering if she was seeing him any differently after all this. But was it supposed to be different? There were so many truths as to how she felt about him that she had to temper and bury. There were still many things that must remain unsaid. And yet, there was no one else in the world to whom she can unveil her soul to. He was the only one who can witness what she would usually hide from everyone else -- her weaknesses and her desires -- and so, yes: she is his, as much as he is hers. That was happiness enough for her.

Riza shifted just so Roy can make himself at ease by her side. With a last sigh, she turned to her side, facing him, and with a gentle but shy smile, she leaned her forehead against his shoulder, bringing her arm up to his. She might have recovered her breath, but her heart still beat strongly.

After a moment she looked back up, humor in her eyes. ]

Ready to receive your evaluation?

[ It was only with her that Roy can show that side of him -- childish, hopeful -- and that slight sheepishness that she saw was something she hadn't seen in a long time. Seeing some of that told her that things were good.

And yet it puzzled her some. Her giving him an "evaluation" was more of a jest than anything, and she certainly was not in any position to give him any kind of score; not to mention, that would be in poor form.

Riza made a soft amused sound. She was settled quite nicely against his side, warm and content. ]

Well... [ Thinking of what to say, not only made her look at the immeasurable things that kept them together, but also made her think of the more grounded: that they just shared something more basic and tangible, and definitely very, very pleasant. Her smile was sober, but nonetheless loving. ] I'm happy.

[ She took a breath, and as she anticipated what she will say next, and how much it all means to her, her heart hammered in pace. ] I'm happy that I'm with you, and that you're with me.

[ She was just about to be content for the silence, for the words left unsaid as they are wont, until Roy spoke...

-- and for a moment that seemed to have stretched on to forever, Riza gazed as if puzzled -- but it was more of her trying to recall as to when exactly was the last time she had heard him say those words?

The opportunities were far apart and far too few, in her opinion. There were eyes and ears that followed -- preyed -- on them. Tonight however, was further proof that the world is changing, and that indeed, whatever efforts and sacrifices they have sowed in the past, they now come to reap their fruits.

With the physical high subsiding, her heart gives way to a different kind of high -- relief, joy, satisfaction all in one package. Her emotions then bid her to smile in return. With her hand over his heart -- ]

Will you say it again? Please.

[ She's not drunk either, but her request was far less because of her misunderstanding, but she just wants to hear his voice saying those words again. ]

[ When Roy drew nearer, Riza held him tighter. Soft laughter bubbled to her lips at Roy's kisses, and she nuzzled his face as he did so.

Anticipating her request to be granted, she closed her eyes...

And when he said it, she released a breath that she barely realized she held. In a sigh -- ]


[ She shifted, gently coaxing her partner to a position where she can touch his face and look him in the eye. ]

I love you.

[ Her face showed all of the gladness to be able to say those words to him. For all those times they have only allowed themselves the most subtle of gestures and looks, being able to speak her heart to the man she loves made it all feel complete. ]

[ Albeit that old habits die hard, but Riza was just thankful for the option, and in the same heartbeat, she vowed to the same in return for Roy. It would be back to the strict formalities once they step back out into the world, but that was something to worry over for another time.

She closed her eyes at the contact, revelling in the closeness. Brushing her lips to his, she mouths those words again -- only because she can -- before pressing in for a brief kiss. ]

Lights out?

[ She's loathe to remind him verbally that they have Things To Do in the morning. Besides, Riza knows when to figuratively pour a bucket of ice over Roy. ]

[ Riza made a mental note to summon that sound from him more often -- she would confess to do so for her own personal enjoyment; but of course, if Roy was happy in any measure, then she was happy.

Roy's touches coaxed more soft sounds of amusement, as she took a short moment to reach out and switch off her bedside lamp. As she slid back closely beside him, she smiled amusingly. She was tempted to fight and stay awake, just so she can watch him sleep in her bed, but he'll need her eyes alert, as always. ]

Good night, Roy.

[ ... and now her sheets will smell of him, too. ]
