Christmas went pretty slowly, to be honest. A quiet day in together, snuggled up on the sofa in front of the fire. I made us hot chocolate with marshmallows and cut us what must've been our fifth slices of cake.
I still couldn't decide if I had feelings for her that extended beyond friendship, but I'm sure they came pretty damn close, especially with the state she was in over Annie. She didn't want to talk about it much and I didn't want to push it. We were both just trying to enjoy our time together.
Over the next few days, I sort of realise that we're getting closer to each other and it's certainly gotten beyond friendship.
About two days before New Year's day, we're sat on the couch together, snuggled up. Rosa reaches up and strokes my cheek.
"Thank you for a wonderful Christmas."
"It should be me thanking you," I smile, kissing her hand. My smile grows a little as she blushes.
"It was good. I like quiet Christmases."
"Well that's good then," she says, kissing my cheek. I hum, turning to catch her lips with my own. "So what do you want to do later?"
"I don't know. I hadn't really thought about it. I'm guessing we won't be having a New Year's party, though?"
"We can if you want. Just us, or we can invite some of the girls and other friends if you want."
"It's up to you, babe," I tell her. I'm hardly gonna make her have a party if she'd rather have another quiet night in. Granted we've had rather a lot of those lately...
"No, everything is up to you. Everything, understand?" She takes my hand and places it over her heart. I feel a look of surprise shape my face. Everything? "What?"
"Nothing... Just... Well, don't you want a say in it?"
"Not at all. I want you to have more say in my life now that we're together." I smile slightly.
"Then surely you should have a say in mine."
"How would you like me to have a say in yours?" she asks, grinning back at me.
"In any way you see fit," I murmur in her ear, planting a soft kiss on her jaw.
"Well then," she says, kissing my nose and then my lips, before nibbling on my ear. I feel a little shiver tickle down my spine. "Is that alright?" she asks, kissing along my jaw.
"Yeah," I smile, resisting the urge to moan the word. She continues to kiss my neck and I tilt my head to let her get to it easier. She strokes my lips with her thumb and looks at me. I look her in the eye, unable to help that I'm getting kinda turned on by this. I've not had sex in a fair while now, since Rosa wanted to take it slow. I'm not sure how long I'm gonna be able to keep up this no sex thing.
"You coming?" I nod. Looks like I won't need to keep up the no sex thing, then. "Come on then, gorgeous," she says, offering her hand, which I take. I blush as she kisses my hand and follow her into the bedroom. I don't think you need all the gory details, so I think I'll leave it at ‘it was a mind blowing evening'.
