Aether could picture it all. Standing by each other's side and watching the lantern they just lit floating up, and then maybe he'd kiss her. Maybe, she got to take a ride on his back, do silly things, be held, tease each other around until they got back in the cabin where it was warm and cozy. Then maybe Soren... She loved all the things roaming in her head. She knew, reality with him would be different, that she couldn't expect it to go so perfectly but she wanted those feelings. She wanted to feel that heart throbbing emotion for him. [i I'm getting to ahead. ] She felt it was wrong to think of it, this wasn't a book out of one of her novels.
Soren's eyes felt much more beautiful than hers. She remembered getting called 'demon' from some old fashioned AI's. I didn't really bug her because she always stood out in the first place. But it was nice to hear his thoughts, [b "Thank you, I'm guessing I don't look evil to you do I?" ] She laughed. He was leaning in, and she definitely wanted to kiss him, but at the same time he was leaning in, she popped out a strawberry before she could even stop herself.
She played around and stuck her tongue [b "What's the fun in that?" ] Aether leaned in, to kiss him, feel that pressure rise up, he heat she got when she got close to someone like this and kissed he. But, she didn't understand why his eyes widened like that-as if he's never kissed a girl. She didn't get it...he's probably kissed plenty. She forgave it when i felt nice, having his hands wrap around her, leaning in more towards her. She kissed him softly, slowly, and then would gently tug on his lips, not being new to kissing and making out.
She didn't want it to end, not yet, she wanted to kiss elsewhere and then he stopped, spoke, and broke her moment. Why did he do stuff like that? [i Maybe your a bad kisser, or he's not that attracted to you, or he's too nervous. ] Any of them sounded equally bad to her. She sighed, weakly smiling [b "Yea..." ] [i I don't want to remember. ] He wasn't the same. There was no point in remembering, it would just hurt. She didn't want anything to compare to.
He didn't kiss her again, or do anything so there was silence. This isn't working. It was making her frustrated. She had a feeling that the reason why they did so well last time they met was because their personalities were compatible when it came to romance back then. [b "So..." ] She didn't know what to say or do. [b I think I'll do some homework. Yea...I'll go do that." ] She nodded and sat up, and brought her tablet. [i Maybe, it'll get better. ] She thought to herself.
He was glad that Aether was here with him because ever since she found him in Avalon, he didn't feel so alone anymore. All he really wanted was some company and now that she was with him, there was no way he was going to lose her or let her go. He had a smile on his face because they weren't fighting anymore. They were able to get along and work things out. He's never really had to yell at someone before because of their actions, but since Aether had her own mind and wasn't a program, she did whatever she felt like and responded however she wanted.
[b "I like the idea of going on a date. I like going on dates with you"] he admitted and then he faced her and he saw how close she was. Soren stared at her eyes because he really did think they looked so pretty. He shook his head [b "I don't know why though. You're eyes are so unique"] he told her, a smile on his face as he leaned in. His eyes met hers and he was going to go for a kiss, but then he saw the strawberries and he just laughed a little and leaned in, trying to take a bite.
He would lean in and then pull back when she took it away. He pouted a little and laughed [b "Hey, if you're going to give it to me, you should just give it to me"] he told her and then she let him have it. He munched on the strawberry, making a face because it was a little sour. He rubbed his cheeks, but when he felt her lips, his eyes widened and then he realized what was happening. He smiled and leaned in more, kissing her lips softly.
He felt Aether leaning in and then he pressed up closer to her. He let his hands wrap around her waist, leaning in to kiss her lips once more. He did love the fact that she didn't care if he was daring or not, but right now he wanted to kiss her and hold her. He really did like her and wanted her to know that, hoping she'd feel the same way.
[b "I really like you Aether. I'll take you to see the lanterns later. Hopefully you'll remember"] he smiled.
Whatever Soren suggested, she felt that they could do everything they wanted as long as they stayed together. It was a good feeling. She liked the idea of them going out, lighting up a lantern. Aether nodded and then he mentioned it being a date. It made her smile a little more. [b "Let's do it, let's go on a date when it gets dark." ] She nodded and she scooted closer to him. She wanted to closer, and couldn't figure out how close she wanted to be. She took it a bit by bit. She liked seeing him smile and say nice things to her.
Aether shrugged [b "Some AI's get freaked out about my eyes." ] She nodded, but his eyes were beautiful no matter what. She noticed him leaning in and for a second she thought he was going to kiss her but then she jumped in by accident and asked him if he wanted strawberries. [i That's just great Aether. Ask him if you want strawberries, yea...real clever. ] He was going along with it though. She grabbed the half of the strawberry and put it near his lips and then pulled it back and giggled. She leaned it into him again and moved it back away from him again. [b "Okay, okay, I'll give it to you for real this time." ] She put it by his lips and let him eat it.
He was definitely going to kiss her at that time. She wanted to... She leaned forward and gave him a kiss. It really was different being with him and an AI. She tired fake feeding an AI before, they would just wait until she actually gave it to them, there were no chase, no fun. It was amazing to see the differences with Soren. She found her body almost touching his when she kissed him.
He didn't want to admit it but he did remember what she looked like. He didn't know if she remembered what he looked like, but when she said it out loud, he turned red. So she knew what he looked like without any clothes on? That was embarrassing.
He changed the subject, thinking about what they could do here. They could do some missions, they could have fun in town, maybe check out other snow activities besides skating. There was a ton of things to do here and now that they had each other, SOren was more than excited to spend time with her.
HE mentioned the lanterns and wondered if she remembered it. [b "It does. You and I lit one up here before. We can go a little later when it gets dark. I do like the idea of getting dessert and just having a normal date with you"] he suggested, not really sure what a real date felt like. He mostly spent his time at the bars.
Soren watched her move closer and then he met her eyes, hearing her. He turned red and then he smiled [b "Your eyes are pretty too Aether"] he leaned in more, inches from her face. When he was going to lean in and kiss her, he heard her speak. [b "Strawberries? Um...okay? WHere'd you get those?"] he wondered, looking to see some strawberries behind her. He met her eyes and then he rubbed the back of his head. [b "Only if you feed it to me"] he told her.
Aether looked off and nodded again. She remembered a bit of it, remembering him...not clothed. It wasn't a hundred percent clear, but she had a good idea of how he looked like. She knew he knew what she looked like. It was kind of weird having that knowledge. Soren changed the subject and it got her mind distracted, trying to think how theywould make that trip now.
[b "Are you sure? I could figure out a way. Oh, alright. Did you climb it at night?" ] She normally did it in the day, and then would camp out if it got dark. She grew silent for a little while and watched him. It was nice to see him beside her, to not be yelling or upset at him for saying those things to her. She felt she already admit her own fault, that she pushed him when it turns out she didn't know him as well as she thought. She knew she wasn't the best in delivering her message across, so maybe she had said something wrong that offended him. Still had more to grow and learn...
Aether raised a brow [b "Lanterns? This town has lanterns?" ] She remembered watching the lanterns with him, where was it? She laid on her side and smiled [b "Really? We can lay here for a little longer." ] Aether rolled a little closer and then lightly laughed [b "I kind of bruised myself from skating a bit. I was trying to do some tricks." ] She met his eyes and felt she could so easily get lost in the color and pattern of them. [b "Your eyes really are pretty." ] Right he was giving suggestions about places to go. She could tell he was really trying. It was sweet...
[b "We could go see the lanterns. Maybe even get some dessert, take pictures." ] She felt the heat rising in her. He was so damn close. She wondered... She tried to scoot even closer to him. and blurt out awkwardly [b "Do you want strawberries?"]
He was awake, feeling something on his hair and when he opened his eyes to see Aether, he felt more relaxed. He wasn't alone and she didn't leave yet either. Soren met her ruby eyes and then he faced her, feeling so warm and snug. HE didn't want to get out of bed just yet, but when she asked about his dream...he didn't feel like he needed to lie about it.
[b "You do?"] he asked, hearing she remembered a bit of what happened. His cheeks burned when she said she knew what he looked like. [b "I...um....know what you look like too"] he told her, biting down on his lips. He knew a lot about her actually.
He tried to change the subject, thinking about going on a hike, but she made a good point. It was too late in the day for that. He thought about something else they could do here. Soren met her eyes and then he shook his head [b "It's okay. It's going to be dark soon. You're right. I don't want to risk the danger. I have climbed up the mountain before"] he told her, seeing her lay in bed with him. WHy would he want to go anywhere else?
[b "Or we can go into town and see the lanterns again?"] he suggested, knowing it was about this time of year. [b "But I'm also happy just laying in bed with you. It's warm and comfy. It makes me not want to leave the bed"] he admitted.
It was good to hear she could do that freely. She kind of wanted to do that now again but he definitely would find it weird at this moment. She would get the chance after, she figured. She wanted to move passed what she did, to whatever he was dreaming off. She remembered a little, and it made her face go red. She couldn't believe this. He dreamed about the two of them nude... It was embarrassing her a little. [b "Uh... " ] She didn't want to tell him she remembered that, or well, was having a hard time to saying she did a bit.
[b "Ah...alright," ] She bruised her hair back [b "I know we did, you said that before. Soren...I actually...remember a bit of it. I...kind of know what you look like" ] She whispered the last bit. He switched the conversation around. A hike up the mountain. She's already done the hike up a mountain near here. She shrugged [b "We could, but, it's going to get dark by the time we reach up there, it's dangerous and it's much more colder at night. Are you sure you want to go up there? It'll be hard to come down." ] She knew this world was generally pretty safe but she also hadn't completed all the missions here. There weren't much but she hadn't done them. She did know that they did the major quest here though.
[b "We could still go, we just need to plan more for it." ] She nodded. She wondered what even made him want to go up. [b "Did you hike up any mountains here before?" ] She still laid in bed with him. It was good not to yell at each other.
She's touched his hair like that before all the time and he was really starting to like it. It was something that only Aether really did, so he really wanted her to keep doing it if she wanted to. [b "Yeah you can. I don't mind it"] he smiled and then he faced her, liking to wake up to her here.
He was surprised to hear that she wanted to know what he was talking about, so when he decided to tell her, he turned as red as a tomato, wondering if she'd think he was weird. He explained what he dreamt of and then when she turned red, he bit down on his lip and then he nodded. [b "Well...it's a dream....based off of something that happened. I don't know if you remember....."] he gulped and then he met her eyes and then he thought about telling her.
[b "Well....we just looked. We didn't do anything afterwards"] he told her, wondering if she knew that they've done it before. [b "Um....but we have.....tested the limit before...ahem...anyways. I'm ready to do something today. Want to maybe hike up the mountains and see the view?"] he suggested, knowing that the mountains had some cool views at the top. You could even see the northern lights if you were lucky.
Right, she had touched his hair likethat before. It was nice to see him smile. At least he wasn't questioning her about that strawberry thing...and staring at him like a creep in his sleep. Maybe he didn't find that weird. Nope. That was definitely weird. [b "oh, than I guess I can touch your hair anytime?" ] She grinned, hoping that's what that translated to. She was worried he'd bring what else she did, so she let the conversation drift off to whatever his dream was about. She suspected something that was embarassing, like forgetting to wear pants.
He was...He sounded nervous. She nodded about the embarrasing part [b "It's okay, you can say it." ] Then she heard the "I' and the 'you' here part. experiment. She burned. She knew what he was talking about. Naked-they were naked in his bed together. She only new a split moment of it, but she wasn't sure if that was a dream or if it was real. Since her face was red, she wondered if she guessed if she remembered a bit of it. "Right...right..." ] She lightly laughed. Soren, had a dream, about them being naked. Wow... She never thought he'd have a dream about her naked. She didn't know if she was flattered or embarrassed.
His face burned up. She shook her head [b "No, no, it's okay. I get it. We can't control our dreams," ] She laughed [b "Don't worry about it... I...was thinking...nevermind." ] She shook her head, not wanting to mention it. She glanced away for a second and met his eyes. He was closer to her than she realized. She wondered what they actually did [b "Did...um...did we just look at each other, or did...something more happen?" ] She cleared her voice, [b "We don't have to talk about it if you don't want to." ] She didn't want to make it awkward.
He was laying back, cuddling in Aether's bed with the blanket because he was so comfortable. HE slept right away with how tired he was and he wasn't going to try and stay up if he didn't need to. Soren's eyes were shut and he was fast asleep, dreaming about him and AEther the last time they were here together.
Soren felt her fingers through his hair and when he opened his eyes to meet hers, he wondered if he was still dreaming. He watched her leave and then he reached his hand out to grab her arm, wanting her to stay with him in the room. She agreed and he had a smile on his face until he remembered what he was dreaming about. She admitted to touching his hair, making him smile again. He liked it when she did that. [b "I don't mind. You used to do that to me all the time. I like it"] he admitted and then she asked him an embarrassing question.
[b "I...I-uhhh....was dreaming about something embarrassing. Um...the last time I was here with you....we sort of had a little....experiment"] he gulped.
[b "We wanted...to see each other....without clothes on"] he rubbed the back of his neck and wondered if she thought was a pervert now or something. [b "I...can't really control my dreams"] he bit down on his lip, his face burning up again. He didn't know if that's what she was expecting, but it wasn't a lie.
She felt much safer being in the same room as Soren since that movie scared the shit out of her. Why did such a movie even exist? What was the point of it!? It just purely scared her. She hated it. It made her shudder, but she found some peace laying down beside him and treating him almost as if he was awake, except he wasn't. She loved the feeling of his hair in her fingers and she took the chance to do it, without him noticing. She took her hand away and sort of fed him a strawberry but ate and pretend he ate it instead. His cheeks looked red...huh. What was he dreaming about? She tilt her head and wondered if he was having some dirty dream or maybe he had a dream about being in his underpants or something.
Her eyes widened really big when he spoke her name. Shit. Was he awake? Maybe if she left quickly he would have thought it was a dream. She got up and she felt the hld on her arm. Well, so much for that idea. She glanced back at him and couldn't really deny his request. If he asked why she was doing weird things to him when he was asleep, she was going to say that he was dreaming all of it.
[b "Sure..." ] She laid down and saw his face turn red. Why? She nervously giggled [b "Uh...I may have or may have not touched your hair for a second." ] Quick, she had to move this converastion elsewhere before he asked her why was she here and talking to him in his sleep. [b "You were blushing in your sleep. What were you dreaming about?" ] She asked, figuring that was a good way to bring the conversation elsewhere. [b "You can tell me, no matter what it is. I've had some really strange dreams before, that were kind of embarrassing." ]
Soren was really tired. HE didn't get much sleep at all since he was worrying that Aether would leave. It really took a toll on him and the skating was really tiring. He didn't think he needed to sleep, but as soon as he laid back against the bed, he was out. It was easy to fall asleep when Aether said sweet dreams. It felt so much more peaceful with her beside him and soon enough he was fast asleep.
He had a dream that he was here in this room. He was with Aether....and they were doing some things. Some things that were so embarrassing like looking at each other without any clothes on. Soren would blush in his sleep, relaxing and then he noticed that someone was touching his hair. In his dream Aether was brushing her fingers through his hair. It felt so nice and comforting. Soren felt so warm, but when he realized that it felt all too real, he opened his eyes a little and then he saw Aether beside him.
[b "Mmm, Aether?"] he peeked over, seeing her eat some strawberries as he rubbed his eyes. He saw her attempting to leave and then he reached out and grabbed her arm. [b "Can you stay with me for a while longer. I want to lay beside you"] he told her, remembering what he dreamt about. His face turned really red and then he looked up at her [b "Were you touching my hair?"] he asked, wondering if it was all just a dream.
It was definitely wrong to keep him up. It wasn't like she couldn't wait until he woke up. He needed rest, and she understood that. She never thought he would be up because of her. She had trouble sleeping but must have slept still earlier than him, and woke up just fine and couldn't sleep now. Aether nodded and smiled [b "Yes, of course I'm sure. You need your sleep. Okay, let me just go fix up the bed." ] She went over and made sure the bed was warm and cozy enough for Soren. She didn't want him to be cold or get uncomfortable. She sure hoped the mattress was okay.
The bed sheets were in a strawberry pattern and even the big blanket was red. She watched him curl up in bed, and found it...nice to see him falling asleep. [b "Sweet dreams Soren," ] She whispered, before slipping out of the room. She sighed. Well, time to pass some time. She decided to step outside and go skating just for a while. She tried to do some tricks and end up falling but still had some fun with it. Then she came back inside, and took a peak at the door to see if Soren was still asleep. Yup. He definitely was.
Aww... She sat down on the sofa and played whatever was on. At first she thought this was a movie about a group going to a nice camping trip until...some demon was trying to kill them. It scared the shit out of her, and then there was bodies, naked bodies. She shut that down and was spooked the hell out. She ate some fruits she had in the fridge and decided to crawl into Soren's room and would look behind her at all times. He looked so-peaceful. He wouldn't notice would he? She crawled into bed and stared like a werido. Yup. this was definitely weird. She stared at his hair and just had to touch, feeling how fluffy and nice it felt. Mmm, this is great.
"Nice chat." She spoke to herself, "Want some strawberries Soren? Say Ahhh." She whispered and put the piece of strawberry near him and then ate it herself, since he was asleep. She sighed, and would wait for another ten minutes before she would get up and leave if he hadn't woken up to sit on the sofa.
He didn't know that it was something relatable to food or a quest. He's learned from other worlds that you couldn't treat people like objects. He wasn't going to complain either because he really didn't think that people were that interchangeable. He understood where Aether came from.
He was really tired, but he's been through days like this before. It wasn't hard to try and stay up, especially since Aether looked a little disappointed. He didn't want to disappoint her, but he really was tired. He let out a deep sigh [b "Are you sure? Okay, then I'll make it up to you when I wake up"] he told her, and then he stayed snuggled in the blankets. He didn't really want to move, but when AEther started setting up the bed for him, what could he do?
He slowly followed her and then he laid down against the bed. He let out a yawn and curled up, looking around. Aether slept in this bed...in this room. He smiled and could smell her scent lingering among the sheets. He wanted to be by her side, or to even fall asleep on her lap, but he knew she wanted to do other things. She wasn't a lazy person, at least not as much as he enjoyed it.
He ended up falling asleep quickly, feeling more relieved now that they were together. He'll make up for falling asleep when he woke up, but he at least wanted Aether to sit by him, maybe play with his hair, or give him a kiss like she always did. Maybe they could continue to be close when he woke up.
Nope, she didn't get it. [b "That's what you say about food, or a quest, not a person." ] He couldn't possibly think that way right? She had been worried he had the same mindset as people in Avalon, that it was okay to date more than one person. But, he said he wouldn't and she believed him. She didn't think he'd leave her either... Maybe she was being too optimistic, but she'd rather have it that way.
Soren wanted to sleep. She felt a little disappointed but it wasn't a deal breaker. That meant she had to wait, but she could definitely pass her time with something, maybe a little skating, or some indoor activity.
[b "That's what I meant, because of Avalon, you have more money than me." ] Avalon's quest reward could have made life a breeze back in the worlds she went to. Although...she wasn't sure if all that money transferred very well or if it transferred at all in some worlds. Soren definitely looked tired. It really was better if he went to sleep. Aether shook her head [b "No...nothing specific." ] She did want to do things together but that could be done after he woke up. She narrowed her eyes and poked his cheek [b "You definitely are sleepy. Go to bed Soren. I can wait until you wake up. There's lots to do, I'll be fine." ] She nodded. She couldn't be selfish and make him stay up.
She then pointed at the door behind them [b "That's the bedroom. The bed should be comfy enough, there's more blankets in the closet. Do you want me to go get them for you? Actually, I'll get the bed ready," ] She got up and opened the door. She went into the closet and looked back at the bed. Did Soren sleep with two pillows or one? She should have paid more attention. She grabbed another pillow just in case and a blanket. She closed the window's curtains for him. [b "Soren, you can come in." ]
