current mood: loved

Continued from here.

Fred shivered slightly as Rupert removed her soaked clothes, letting them fall to floor with wet sploshes. She tried to pull up on his shirt, but when his hands started running over her skin, she moaned, especially when he kneeled in front of her, his tongue finding her clit. With a soft cry, she grabbed his shoulders to stay upright. She was very definitely beginning to warm up, electrical sensations tingling throughout every part of her body.

"Oh, God," she whimpered when he delved back between her legs after asking what she wanted. She tugged at him, pulling him up and grasping his sweater to pull it off before reaching for his jeans to unbuckle them and push them down with his boxers.

"Want you inside me," she told him, pulling him closer to kiss him. "Against the wall. Won't be able to do that soon, so want to do it now."

Me - Wha?

When Rupert pressed his hand to her forehead and said she was feeling warm, Fred wanted to kiss him, knowing that he was trying to get them out of there gracefully. She played along and gave him a nod although her fist clenched beneath the table when Evelyn started in on her perfect pregnancy again. She wanted to tell her off, but Peter did that for her in a way, obviously as pissed off with her as she and Rupert were.

She instead allowed her husband to help her up, shaking her head with Evelyn tried to get them to stay.

"I'd rather you take me home as well," she said softly, leaning into Rupert as he walked her toward the door.

"I hope you feel better, Fred," Peter told her. "And I really am sorry for what happened to you. To both of you."

"Thank you," she replied.

Evelyn looked like she wanted to say something but then Henry started screaming, having been left alone in the dining room, so she ran in to deal with him. Fred looked up at Rupert, and after saying goodbye to Peter, they headed outside to the car.

"What on earth does Peter see in that witch?" she asked in disbelief once the door was safely shut behind them.

Giles - By window

"Thank you, Peter," Giles said as he helped Fred out of the door. When it shut behind them and she asked her question, Giles sighed and led her to the car and got her inside before going around to his side. Once he was inside the car, and buckled in, he started the car and pulled out of the driveway.

"Funny story that is," he said in reference to Evelyn and Peter. "Evelyn's family has been part of the Council for generations. Her father and Wesley's father were best mates, and at one time Wesley was to marry her, but I don't believe he knew that. Anyway, when he was fired from the Council, there was a bit of a scramble to find Evelyn a suitable suitor. Peter seemed like a good choice, even though Evelyn and him are distant cousins."

He turned off onto the side road that would take them to their house. "Marrying distant cousins isn't unheard of within the Council circles. Some believe it's the best way to keep the organization tight and safe. It's a bit disgusting if you ask me," he said, glancing over at his wife.

When they arrived at the house, Giles killed the engine and looked at her. "Something's wrong, isn't it? You barely ate anything. Are you not feeling well?" he asked as he brushed her hair back.

Me - Only

Fred listened as Rupert told her about Evelyn's family and how Wesley was supposed to marry her originally - and he hadn't known. Her eyes opened wide in amazement. "They...they actually arrange Council marriages too?" she said softly, shaking her head. It should haven't surprised her really, given everything she had seen and been told. "I'm sorta relieved she never got her hooks into Wesley. I'd hate to think of him having to put up with her!"

The fact that Peter and Evelyn were distant cousins didn't surprise her much under the circumstances. She knew many royal lines did the same thing - Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip were distant cousins through Queen Victoria. And the Council in some ways seemed to be - or at least consider itself - as important as the Royal family.

She looked over at Rupert, thinking about how different he was from so many of the other "Old Guard" Watchers. "You--did your parents...they didn't try to arrange a marriage for you, did they?" Her in-laws didn't seem the type, but she was curious, especially knowing what she did know about his past.

When they arrived at the house, she shrugged slightly and leaned into his touch. "Peter's comment about the Board kinda got to me. The fact that some of the board members were actually proud of what what Lawrence got Ethan to do to me...it--it didn't sit to well with me. And with Evelyn being such a bitch, I just wasn't in the mood to eat." She looked at him. "I'm sorry. I know Peter is supposed to be our ally in all this."

Giles - Pen in mouth

Giles frowned when Fred told him what was bothering her. He'd been so wrapped up in trying to get them information on how to handle the board, he'd forgotten she had suffered the most. "I'm sorry, love," he whispered, his fingers tracing over her face. "I know this probably won't make you feel better but it's how the board works. Try not to let it bother you."

There was soft mist beginning to form in the air so Giles unbuckled himself and opened his car door. He went around to Fred's side and helped her out. "Lets get you inside where it's warm," he said, taking her hand. They went up to the front door and Giles unlocked it before opening it up.

Molly greeted them and sniffed at their feet. "Why don't you head upstairs and lie down? I'll bring some hot chocolate and biscuits up and we can spend the rest of the evening in bed," he suggested as Molly started to whine. "And I'll let Molly out while I'm in the kitchen."

He shooed his wife upstairs and headed toward the kitchen with Molly on his heels.

Me - Thinking of You

Fred closed her eyes for a moment as Rupert's fingers gently caressed over her face. "I'm trying. It just--I think Evelyn put me in a bad mood, so hearing that on top of it all didn't help."

Part of her wanted to make every single member of that board experience exactly what she had been through and see how much they liked it, but she knew that would make her just as bad as them. Her husband was right - she just had to not let it bother her and show that she and he were strong. They weren't going to let anything come between them or tear them apart.

She squeezed his hand once he helped her out of the car to go inside the house. "Thank you for what you did, getting us out of there," she told him softly. It meant so much to her that he would do things like that for her.

Once they were inside, she nodded at his suggestion that she head upstairs, so she gave him a kiss and walked up to the bedroom where she got into her nightgown. Snuggling down under the covers, she rested her hand on her stomach.

"Peter and Evelyn should have never been parents," she told their unborn baby. "But I know your father is going to be so good to you, and we're going to be the best parents we can be."

Giles - Amused

Giles let Molly out before he started on the hot chocolate. He boiled the milk and added the cocoa mix to some cups. After placing some marshmallows, and oatmeal biscuits on a tray, he let Molly in and then placed the cups on the tray. With Molly following behind him.

When they got to the room, Molly jumped up onto the bed as Giles sat the tray on the dresser. He smiled at his wife. "You're so beautiful," he whispered before he pulled a clean pair of pajamas out of the dresser. Giles quickly changed, throwing his clothes in the hamper before picking up a cup of hot chocolate.

He handed it to Fred before going back to retrieve the plates of biscuits and marshmallows. Placing the plates on the bed, Giles chuckled when he saw Molly sniffing at the plate. "Here," he said, handing her one of the biscuits. "Not on the bed though." The puppy listened and took it to the floor to eat.

Once Giles had his own cup of hot chocolate, he got into bed and looked at Fred. "Feeling better, love?" he asked.

Me - Shy

Fred smiled up at her husband when he came into the room with the tray. "You're pretty handsome yourself," she told him, watching while he changed into his pajamas. She knew she'd never tire of the sight of him and realized how lucky she had been to find him. He made her feel like the most special woman in the world, especially when he brought her hot chocolate and oatmeal cookies in bed.

Sitting up, she took the cup he offered her once he was done changing, closing her eyes and inhaling the warm fragrance. When she opened her eyes again, she couldn't help but laugh at Molly's investigation of the plate of cookies.

"We spoil her," she told Rupert. "Not every dog that gets to eat oatmeal cookies, even if it is on the floor."

When he sat down on the bed with her and asked if she was all right, she nodded and took a sip of her drink. "I am. Was thinking that the best revenge we can get against the jerks on the Board that like what Lawrence did is to show them just how much that's not going to work." She looked down at herself for a moment. "I was also telling our son and daughter that we're not going to be anything like Peter or Evelyn. I was actually feeling sorry for Henry by the time we left."
