[b "Protein shakes only from now on before workouts,"] Gavin groaned, his stomach still churning.
He'd never worked out to the point of being physically ill before, but he can only hope that as he built up stamina and strength, he'd be able to keep on par with her. For the time being, however, his body was revolting in every way it possibly could.
[b "I may be dead before you get back!"] he called after her as she left him in the care of the fuzzy babies.
[b "Linus. Linus, buddy, help me,"] he groaned, holding out a hand.
The dog gave him a few kisses and then wandered off. [b "Luna?"] Gavin looked desperately at the cat.
Go figure she was no help either. It took far long than he'd like to admit, but he eventually got himself into the tub and ran a cold shower. It was a welcomed relief from the heat his body was radiating. It was a challenge to wash the sweat off, but he managed.
When she stopped back in to check on him, he was still sitting in a tub of cold water. [b "I"m not quite sure, but I think I'm dying,"] he called back.
Serena did take off. She knew something like this was going to happened. When guilt creeped up she did twenty burpees and ran back. By the time the girl reached him he had vomited and didn’t look well. The girl wipes a few beads of sweat off her face. [#af18ae “Alright, go home. Go eat. Rest. I’ll walk you back, but I’m gonna continue my run.”] she says swinging one of his sweaty arms over shoulder to help him walk back. He’s probably cramping somewhere. [#af18ae “You did good. Tomorrow I’ll probably have you do laps within a short distance.”] she says looking up to see if the sun would be coming out. Dark clouds seems to be washing up.
When they reached the house she left him at the front. The pets were there waiting. She showed them both love, Gavin a kiss and dodo burpees again before taking off. A little over an hour later she returns sweating like a beast. A sweat dropped from he nose and hit poor luna who was walking by. [#af18ae “How are you feeling now?”] she asks going to get a bottle of water before going back outside to workout more.
The woman was pure evil.
He thought she'd give him a small break. You know, since she claimed to love him and all. But no, she went ahead and ordered him to do the worst exercise known to man. [b "This is purely torture techniques,"] he grunted as he completed the first one.
Burpees. Everything about them was awful. The jumping, the push up, the desperate gasping for air as the rest of your energy leaves your body. Gavin was fairly sure he blacked out at some point, but he managed the five. The last two were completely pitiful, but it was done.
[b "Sweet mother of god, just kill me now,"] he looked desperately at Luna.
The traitorous cat barely spared him a second glance after getting his sweat on her face. [b "Luna, don't leave me with her!"] he called, forcing himself to his feet.
He ran as much as he could - only a few meters - before stopping. [b "I'm gonna be sick."]
There was no dignified way to do it. He hauled himself as close to the bushes as he could before losing everything in his stomach. [b "You did this to me!"] he aimed a finger at her while his head remained buried in the shrub.
Serena didn’t want to go too far. It can discourage the poor guy. Instead she would keep a small distance. Maybe if she does increase spread she’ll stop to do a few burpees. [#af18ae “This is me jogging.”] she says turning to jog backwards. The girl laughs seeing him sweating like crazy. [#af18ae “Wow, I can see why you hate me. Let’s increased that shall we.”] she says stopping in front of him. [#af18ae “Five burpees. Let’s go.] she says dropping down to do one. She waited for him to start the first one before doing the five and more until he completed his five.
After his five, she ran away. Luna reached Gavin and meowsat him. [#af18ae “Tell her to go home before a big bird takes her for lunch!”] Serena shouts from a distance. Luna looks her way twitching her hears trying to find serena. The cat meows again rubbing her beautiful coat fur against his sweaty legs. It was a mistake on her part and she knew it which is why she shook her body from head to toe before going back the direction she came from.
He began regretting the plan as soon as she left the room. Goddamn, were lunges supposed to burn this badly? His thighs and calves were going to catch fire. Even changing to squats did nothing but shift the burn to his ass. Gavin lowered himself to the floor and gave himself five seconds of lying there before sitting up to reach for his toes.
[b "Oh now come on, that's not fair at all,"] he threw a pout her way when she rejoined him dressed like a goddess.
Letting her pull him to his feet, Gavin gives his shoulders a few more stretches. [b "Don't say I never do anything for you,"] he joked, lining up beside her while she counted down.
To no one's surprise, she got a quick lead. He wasn't falling too far behind, but he certainly wasn't gaining ground on her. Linus quit after a few yards. Was it always this hot? Gavin wiped the sweat already forming on his brow. The storm left the air muggy and humid, but at least the sun wasn't burning down on them.
[b "Are you even trying?"] he panted, calling out to her.
She barely seemed phased by any of it. She could probably podium at a championship race. And it was entirely cruel that she looked so damn good while running, when he looked like he'd been dunked in a water tank. His curls were beginning to flatten to his head with sweat.
[b "I hate you, have I ever told you that?"] he whined as a leg cramp started ten minutes into the run.
It’s god to hear that her experimental breakfast is good. It made eating her first bite more magical. With a spoon in one hand and a mug in another. He was right. It is delicious. This recipes needs to be saved. If she remembers where she got it from. [#af18ae “Go do that. Do some lunges, squats and two or three burpees.”] she tells him after he kissed her temple, as the girl watched him leave. [i [#af18ae ‘More for me’,]] she thought to herself.
Serena puts the tray down on the floor to stretch starting off with a split and reaching for her toes. This is going to be a killer not mention how much her appetite is going to increase afterwards. The girl almost chokes seeing him walk in doing lunges in his outfit. [#af18ae “WOW, this is dedication...”] she says closing her legs and tucking them under herself. She grabs her cup off coffee to finish it. [af18ae “Now I need to get ready. Continue stretching. Drink water. Can’t have you dehydrated.”] she says crawling away.
Her hair is up in a tony tail. Her outfit is all black. Black high waist leggings, sport bra, socks, and sneakers. An evil grin apparatus on her face. He is so going to regret this. He may have to soak in a tub full of ice water and that he’ll most likely won’t even attempt to do. Without saying a word she grabs his hand to lead him outside. Both pets followed but she wasn’t worried. The second she left go oh his hand she began to count down starting from ten before taking off.
[b "Well, you were unconscious for a good forty-eight hours. Your blood sugar is probably still low, and you're practically dehydrated. It'll take a bit longer to get your strength back up. Just keep eating, and your energy levels will be back to what they were,"] he accepted the fork to take a bite. [b "This is a good way to do it. It's delicious,"] Gavin grinned, reaching for another bite.
The idea of going for a run wasn't nearly as appealing as just relaxing in the backyard hammock, but it had to be done. He wouldn't pack on any muscle or cardio skills by lounging around all the time. Besides, she was recovering from a major assault and she was still in better shape than he was. [b "I think I can part with the love handles,"] he grabbed at the little fleshy bits on his hips.
He stepped closer to press a kiss to her temple. [b "Gonna get changed and stretch so I don't pull every muscle that my lower body has."]
While not quite spandex, his training shorts were still a tighter than regular basketball shorts. The remainder of his brief time practicing MMA to try to get into shape after their big break up a few years back. He forwent the shirt. Might as well try to seduce her a little bit, if he has to exercise.
Gavin dramatically does lunge steps into the kitchen, hands firmly on his hips. [b "Future Olympic athlete, at your service."]
Serena chuckles. Of course he would choose coffee. He gets to add as much sugar as he wants. It was a mistake on her part for even suggesting it. He was quick to brew some up and make himself a cup. He couldn’t even ask or make her a cup. The girl gets up to make herself one. Pure black and a spoon of sugar just to sweeten it a little.
[#af18ae “Where whatever you want. Just don’t complain if whatever you wear is heavy, suffocating you or if you decide to run in the nude or in your boxers. You don’t have to come but you do need to start working out. I can’t bring you into missions if you’re not fit or know how to protect yourself. Things are changing and so should you. You can still have your [i fat cakes] though.”] she adds winking at time.
Serena pulls out the tray with the experiment breakfast. It smells amazing. So good that she’s salivating. The girl licks her lips and bites on her bottom lip gently. [#af18ae “I think since i lost so much blood I’ve been more hungry. I’m going to make some dumplings, egg fried rice with vegetables, and broccoli and chicken. Traveling has it perks...”] she says smiling at him, already planning dinner. What about lunch? If they eat lunch. Maybe she’ll skip it. She needs to get into more shape. The girl got her ass handed to her so it makes sense. [#af18ae “Okay try it. It’s pieces of biscuit dough, eggs, chopped bacon and lots of it, cheese and green onions. Got the recipe offline.”] she says carefully pulling a piece it out but it was too hot. Instead she grabs a spoon to take a small piece out and offers it to him before getting a spoon of her own. She’s starving!
Gavin was grumbling under his breath by the time she joined him, freshly showered. [b "Nothing since we last saw him. No accessed documents, no new contact with sources, and no tinkering on my computer. It makes me more suspicious than when we know he's being a corrupt prick,"] he answered.
The mention of coffee perked his ears right up. [b "Coffee. Definitely coffee. The only good smoothie is a milkshake,"] he rose from his chair to make a fresh pot.
He added far too much sugar to his mug while they waited for the machine to brew. [b "A run sounds like pure evil at the moment, but I suppose I'd better join you. Cardio and all that. The hills are going to be a cruel bitch on my lungs but I suppose that's what I get for canceling my gym membership to stay home and binge watch television the past few years."]
Mercifully, the coffee is ready before he can whine too much. [b "This is better than sex,"] he sighs dramatically, cradling the warm mug to his cheek. [b "Truly, the nectar of the gods,"] he took a long sip.
Leaning against the counter, he peaks an eye open at her. [b "Should I wear spandex shorts and a tight shirt on our run to seduce you? Maybe do some provocative stretching in front of you, to get your heart rate up?"] he teased.
Serena laughs hearing him. The dog probably made it under the covers imposing as her. That's hilarious. [#af18ae "That's okay. I guess I need to tune into my mermaid abilities and sleep here for now on."] She says flicking some water at his directions. Her head gently nods when he said he's going to check the computers. When he left she got up so she can properly shower. Luna jumps when she heard the shower head.
The girl began to sing 'All She Wants' by Ace of Base. Luna meowed to a few parts. It didn't take long for her to get out. With a towel wrapped around her body she walks out to the bedroom to put on a large baggy shirt and an underwear. [#af18ae "Anything?"] She ask walking to the kitchen to start making breakfast. She decided to try something new. Pillsbury pull apart breakfast that consist with flaky biscuits, eggs, bacon, green onions, and cheese. The most annoying part was breaking each biscuit into four quarters. [#af18ae "I'm going for a run an hour after we eat. You're welcome to join me."] She says sitting down, waiting for it to bake in the oven. She had two days to do whatever she wants before she has to go see if the gangsters did their part. If not she's going to get her money back and maybe kill a few.
Serena rests her chin in her palm as she stares out the window. Everything is green and slowly moving in waves. It's like a green ocean of waves. It's pretty. Maybe they should plant flowers to add colors around this place. [#af18ae "Do you want coffee? I don't know if I should make coffee or a smoothie."] she says breaking her gaze. Luna purrs and jumps onto a chair and on the table to be closer to the window.
He let himself drift off again, under the warmth of her body and even breaths. When he woke up the next morning, the bed was cooled and Linus had his head on Serena's pillow, panting in Gavin's face. [b "Why Serena,"] he called out playfully. [b "You've grown quite hairy overnight. And your breath smells like Milkbones."]
Rising out of the bed, he found her in the tub with Luna perched carefully where should could avoid the water while supervising. [b "I'm not entirely sure, but I think you just lost your half of the bed to my dog. We may have to invest in a king size, so he can sleep in the middle."]
Luna reached out with her paw to catch his hand, almost as if demanding for a head scratch. He was more than happy to comply. [b "I'm going to check for any updates on the computer. See if Byrnes has done anything worth noting over the past day."]
He kissed her cheek and gave the cat one more scratch before wandering to boot up the laptop. Fortunately, all seemed quiet on the Byrnes front. Gavin set up a small protocol so that any time Byrnes accesses files under Gavin's hard drive would send an alert to the laptop.
Serena playfully rolled her eyes. Only if he knew she was thinking about him. Maybe that’s how he sensed them because it’s about him. If he would’ve ignored it a little longer she would’ve went back to sleep. [#af18ae “You must be speaking for yourself. I can work out longer than this.”] she says grinning. Kissing his forehead.
[#af18ae “You’re dog. You train him. Now go back to sleep.”] she whispers pulling the blanket a bit higher to cover her bare shoulders. With a flick of a lightening it began to pour again. Then the series of lightening and thunder began. She closed her eyes shut, pulling herself closer to him. They not a fan of thunder. Lightening on the other hand is a prettt scene. The way it lights up when it’s pitch black giving it either the nice purple or dark blue effect. Lovely. Thunder on the other hand scares her. Past experience. The girl whispers I love you before going back to sleep.
By morning it stopped raining. Serena was in the tub soaking. Luna was like a guardian or a peeping-Tom watching her soak. The cat was sitting on the edge of the tub. She needs to get up took to make breakfast.
Regardless of how rough the storm outside was, Gavin was delightfully tired and cozy warm in the bed. He barely woke to Serena stirring beside him, only peaking his eyes open long enough to stretch his arm around her. [b "Go back to sleep. You're thinking far too loudly,"] he grumbled, rolling slightly to nestle his face in her neck.
Linus took offense to his movement, taking the opportunity to push back against them. [b "I think we did far more exercise than we ever would have, had we gone on that run you suggested,"] he teased playfully, dragging his fingertips up and down her hip.
It was dizzying how quickly she made every coherent thought leave his head. Gavin knew he'd been taunting her before their bedroom excursion, but he instantly turned into an idiot when her lips were on his.
[b "I don't suppose there is any chance that we can just stay in this room for the rest of our lives? I'm sure we can train Linus to go and bring us food from the grocery store whenever we're running low,"] he let his eyes fall closed once more.
Serena turns around, still in his arms. She pulls he is head down into a deeper kiss. She could feel him smile against her lips as her hands cross his chest. Her eyes closed feeling his lips trailing kisses down her neck, letting one of his hands slide her thighs. She grasp the bottom of his shirt and helps him take it off tossing it on the floor. Except it lands on Luna who was walking by like an innocent bystander. She continues to help him undress adding the clothes onto a pile. She could feel his hands wonder from her neck to his chest. A moan escapes her. They couldn’t make it to the bedroom when his hands got lower.
When she woke they had a blanket on them. The fur babies nest to them. It was still dark out but the storm seems to be passing. Her lifts up a little to turn to look at Gavin. A smile grew on her face. Maybe all they needed was a second chance to try to make things work right and normally. She carefully shirts to give him a kiss on the nose without pulling the blanket to go back to sleep.
He snorted a laugh. [b "Two kids with our genetics are going to be absolute monsters. I can see it now. We'll be getting phone calls from the neighbours demanding for us to come get the toddlers off the roof because they're trying to catch birds to keep as pets. We're in for trouble no matter how many we have."]
He followed her out of the bed and caught sight of the storm clouds brewing in the distance, with flashes of heat lightning flickering behind them. [b "I'm not sure I know the area well enough to be driving in a downpour, let alone a full on storm. If its anything like last night's, I'll end up in a ditch somewhere with four flat tires and a concussion, at the very least."]
Gavin stepped up behind her at the window and wrapped her up tightly in his arms. [b "I'm liking the idea of baby practice. If you can promise that you're not in pain and in need of drugging to sleep it off,"] he buried his face in her neck.
[b "I also hope that you're aware of the inevitable spoiling that will happen to our kid, no matter the gender. I am going to be absolutely useless at sticking to my guns. You may have to toughen me up,"] he dragged his teeth lightly along her skin.
