If you're still reading, thank you, you're awesome. As promised, the beginning of the best doccubus story ever. ;)
Things hadn't been the same between Bo and Lauren since their break up. After their battle with the Garuda, they had lost touch, both occupied with their own personal stuff. She thought it would be possible to remain friends with the doctor, but the connection they had, and the strength of their feelings for one another in some way could never leave them. It was one of those rare once in a lifetime loves that could never be replaced. The kind where the mere presence of the person you love shakes you to the core and washes your body in total happiness and bliss. You feel completely comfortable with them as your souls touch one another. Soul mates. Sometimes by the time you realize what you had, realize the meaning of the word and finally understand it, it's too late. And sometimes, it's not.
Bo paced in her room, debating whether or not to go to the Ashe's compound alone. It wasn't as if the task required two people, she was more then capable of retrieving the artifacts they needed on her own, but a sick feeling swirled around in her stomach. Suddenly, realization sunk in. She was nervous. Pacing back to the mirror, and checking her flawless complexion for the hundredth time that night, she stopped. Why the hell am I nervous? It's just Lauren. She shook her head. The succubus felt like a teenager again, getting ready for a first date. She tried to search for an explanation, but couldn't. Her thoughts kept drifting back to Lauren's birthday, the look on her face when she saw the blonde leave without saying good bye. I'm a succubus, Lauren understands. Despite her attempt to mentally soothing herself, Bo couldn't shake the guilt.
Walking through a corridor in the Ashes compound brought a sense of deja vu, and the closer she got to the lab, the more butterflies danced in her stomach. Just before entering, she bit her lip. Get it together Bo. In that moment, she couldn't account for what she was feeling, or why. Maybe she had always felt this way, maybe her and Lauren would in some sense never be completely separate from one another and what they had.
Looking around the sterile, perfectly organized lab, she quickly spotted Lauren. Distractedly studying a thick brown file and typing on her computer with her back towards Bo, the doctor barely looked away from the computer screen as she heard foot steps enter the lab. Bo moved closer to where she was, "Hey, Lauren. Trick sent me to talk to you about borrowing some things from the Ashe's vault". Her head immediately snapped back toward Bo's voice. The familiar voice sent a warm, tingling feeling through her body. Then she remembered what had happened at the Dahl and the feeling was replaced by pain and emptiness. For a few seconds she couldn't bring herself to speak. There were so many things she wanted to say, but couldn't. She didn't want Bo the know there was anything wrong, so she quickly cleared her throat and put on her unreadable doctor's mask. "What is it you would like to borrow?".
The succubus tilted her head slightly, not sure what to make of Lauren's odd reaction to her. Something is definitely up. "Uh anything that can be used for defence, Jade and I are going after the psychotic telekinetic fae tomorrow". The doctor's jaw dropped. "I-I've been doing research on him, as per instruction from the Ash. He is a Botis and is extremely powerful, and most likely not alone. If you remember the Abbadons that attacked you.. this Spike has a small army of them. Bo… you can't go after him without a plan". Her concern made the succubus smile slightly. She placed her hand on the doctor's shoulder "I always have a plan. Me and Jade are going to go in there, kick his ass and get back the artifacts he stole. We should both be strong enough, so all we really need is something to increase our defence against his telekinesis". The blonde involuntary shivered slightly at the contact, which didn't go unnoticed by the succubus. She raised an eyebrow, and Lauren blushed slightly.
There was no point in arguing with her. Lauren knew once Bo had made up her mind about something, there was no changing it. She let out a soft sigh as she stood up. "Let me have a look. I'll get back to you early tomorrow okay?". The succubus smiled, "Thanks Lauren". Just as she was about to turn and leave, she paused. "Is everything okay? something just seems off…". Concerned dark brown eyes met the hesitate the hazel ones that she could read all too well. The doctor was caught, she couldn't hide anything from the Bo."I…. it's nothing. Just forget it. I'm glad that you're happy with Jade". The doctor quickly turned back to her computer screen just as the tears began to well up. She choked back a sob. Bo closed her eyes for a moment, Shit.
She walked over to the desk Lauren was working at and put her hands on her arms and gently spun her in her swivel chair . "We're not together… that night, we were both drunk, and Jade just kissed me. That's all that happened. The attraction is there, but I don't want to go there. Neither of us do. The connection… it's not there. Jade and I both know we're better off as friends". The blonde felt a heaviness leave her chest. "Oh. I see". "Look, I get that with my libido I can be a little insensitive sometimes, so i'm sorry. Let me make it up to you. Lets get breakfast tomorrow morning. You can fill me in on whatever you find for defence against this freak. I feel like I haven't talked to you in ages, and we need to reconnect. I want to reconnect". The doctor genuinely smiled for the first time since the two had broken up. "I'd like that Bo. I'll see you tomorrow". Before leaving the brunette bent down and pulled her into a hug. Warmth flooded both woman's bodies once again.
