Even to Jesse it felt interesting to slip a ring on someone's finger. It definitely felt like it created a bond and that was something he couldn't quite describe. Still he smiled to her. "Oh, I'm going all out for this," he mused and kissed her before going to pay for the ring. Somehow it didn't feel wrong to do this.
The more time they spent together, the more Savanah became happy with Carrick. They were good together and once the first few months had passed with the early symptoms having subsided a physical relationship was also possible.
It was still strange that there was something growing inside her, but slowly she could feel her body changing. The thought that her body would soon no longer be its model shape was still a little hard to handle and giving up on acting for now was hard. Wearing loose clothes, she could still hide her pregnancy, but she knew that soon she couldn't hide it anymore.
Sighing, she curled against Carrick when he pulled her onto his lap. "I miss them too. It's not easy for me to be home now," she replied, resting her hand on her tiny bump, "I hope so. I'm sure there will still be people that are disappointed that we never really got together." Gently she leaned up to kiss his cheek, smiling at the thought. "That's good. I can't wait. I want you all to myself and we still have a lot to plan," she told him, cuddling into him, "Soon I won't be able to hide it anymore." She knew that it would cause another storm for them. Taking his hand, she moved it to the bump.
Kenna wasn't prepared for the weird sensation seeing a ring on her finger. For over a decade there was a feeling of being unworthy of being a partner in a deep relationship. It was fake but it was a feeling she wanted to feel.
"We have a party to plan, baby," Kenna chuckled.
One date lead to another, then another, and finally having a physical relationship without being drunk.
"The cast misses you. Joss thinks that your character seemingly being murdered will go well," Carrick pulled her into his lap. There was the smallest of bumps that was really only noticeable if one paid attention. "Just one more month and I'm all yours."
Chuckling, Jesse gave her a knowing look. "I am well aware," he replied as he continued to watch her decision process, "At least I have seen the amount of boots you wear." She had gushed about them a few times as well.
Patiently he let her decide on a ring. The one she ultimately chose didn't surprise him too much. It was simpler, but intricate, in a way it almost was describing her. "I would love to," he said and took the ring to slip it on her finger slowly, "It's perfect on you. Looks like we have the first part of her plan." Not being able to resist himself, he kissed the ring before smiling to her. It was an interesting feeling to put a ring on someone, even if it was pretend.
"This won't come as a surprise...but I love my boots more than jewelry...I think I own three pieces of jewelry," Kenna chuckled, looking to him before giving a soft chuckle. They were all so big, and sparkly, she wasn't sure if she wanted to touch the rings.
After looking a few rings she found the one that was more simple but it was also a more interesting design. "There we go...this will work...want to do the honors?"
Jesse chuckled at her response. "I always did wonder what it would be like to skirt the legal lines. I do occasionally, but I'm not stupid enough to do anything illegally with my company on the line," he replied, knowing just enough tricks to get by without getting into trouble.
He honestly couldn't say if he had ever been in a jewelry store before. Probably not and definitely not for this reason. Hearing what she said, he smirked to her. "Oh no, we don't just pick one. We pick the one. If we're doing this, we're doing this right," he told her and turned to the store owner, "Show us your most expensive rings." Whether it was fake or not didn't matter. He was doing this right and more believable. With the most flashiest and priciest rings in front of them, he looked to her. "Choose whichever one you want," he said, wondering what she would choose.
"I should have met you a long time ago. You would have been the perfect partner in crime," Kenna answered in surprise and admiration. Somehow he was the perfect match, that'd be set up immediately. DNA test, posing as a lobbying couple.
At one of the ring shops she looked to all of them raising an eyebrow. "Wow..that's a lot of sparkling...I guess we pick one?"
Jesse smirked at her in his trademark way. "Well, then you can keep it afterwards. I mean, I don't exactly have a use for it as it stands right now," he told her, genuinely meaning that. What was he supposed to do with an engagement ring at this point? He didn't need the money so he may as well give it away to be done whatever with.
What she said gave him an idea and a grin spread on his face. "Oh, I won't find a big party. I'm going to throw the biggest party Washington has ever seen. If he doesn't come then, he isn't related to me," he said, already details falling in place for what was needed, "Oh, is that so? Worked out pretty well then, I would say." Smiling over to her, he was kind of excited about all this.
"Only you'd go all out for a fake engagement. What would you do if I fell in love with the ring?" Kenna smirked towards him with that open joke. They both were not sure about commitment but wanted each other. Yet they were both unstable in their actions.
"Well, if they aren't here, then you lure them to you. He likes a party so find some big party and target him..." She chuckled. "I had to use that on you in the first week I took the case."
Jesse gave an amused chuckle. She had a point there. "That's true," he agreed with a small smile, since he had only been checking mostly, "I highly doubt that he's here. I mean... if I were him, I would never leave the comfort of the clubs to come to stuffy Washington DC. Or do you think she would have her son come here for this?" He wasn't so sure.
Her words made him smirk. "Careful. This might be pretend, but that doesn't mean I won't go all out on that ring," he warned her, but nodded, "Very well, let's go ring shopping." It would be very interesting to see how this went.
"Do you really think I want to be engaged? We just decided to be exclusive, that's a big step. Normally....I'd agree...She already knows. We just need for her to come to us on our terms. Maybe if the brother is here getting some DNA evidence would be good," Kenna had that look in her eyes.
"What do you say, dear? A nice ring and we could sell it," she gave a wide grin.
Jesse chuckled at the thought. "Actually, I do enjoy the idea of green aliens. We definitely should have more of them," he agreed with an amused look, "Here I am. Though with me here, won't she be suspicious?" It wasn't like he had ever sought her out or anything.
At the suggestion be looked to her, arching a brow clearly surprised. Was she being serious? "As in... for real or pretend?" he inquired slowly, trying to figure out what she meant. She probably meant pretend, but he had to make sure. Maybe real would make it look more believable?
"We could say for more green aliens an she would come. After all, she's trying to ruin you and there you are," Kenna smirked. Looking around she saw some of the couples before thinking. "Want to take the next step? A fiancee of the person that she had hired."
She wouldn't consider it otherwise but putting on the best damn show would be fun.
Jesse gave her a smirk. "You doubt I could be a convincing...," he began before seeing that look she had. It was clear that she had just had an inspiration. "I am Hollywood, yes. Thank you for noticing," he mused before thinking on it, "That could work. What would I be lobbying for? It needs to be something that captures her attention." He had to stick out among the hundreds of lobbyists, though truthfully, he didn't think that would be a problem.
Still he couldn't help smiling. "Now I get a front row seat to all the action. How exciting," he said, finishing his food, "Okay, so we got me. What next?" There were probably still a few things that needed to be put into place before they could start.
"Oh yeah...be one of those guys lobbying for something..." Kenna stopped midsentence and action before looking to him. "That's it. You're Hollywood. You're going to be lobbying for something, she sees you and then everything will start happening. She's going to do the hard work for us."
It was probably the start of the most ambitious project yet and she was ready for it all.
Jesse gave a calm nod. "I am aware," he replied before giving a small shrug, "Well, I could always bust you out or do some of my own shady dealing, if you end up in court on your way to jail. Though if she is feeling threatened by something she did in the past, I doubt she will run to her husband." At least he couldn't imagine that.
"Well, you do love out of the box so I have no doubt you will be able to think of something," he told her confidently with a small smirk as he ate his food. He did wish there was more he could do, but he was fairly sure he would only get in the way.
