Dreaming of You by: MaryBeth Stortroen
Vincent Keller lay on his bed, staring up at the ceiling, thinking of her. He tried to go to sleep but whenever he'd close his eyes, all he would see was her, see her smile, and feel her touch, and then when he finally fell asleep, he would dream about her, dream about a life with her, dream that she was asleep right beside him. He started hoping that she was in her apartment, wide awake, thinking about him, like he was her but he knew that she was probably sleeping and besides after the whole business with Alex, he believed she'd never want to have anything to do with him anymore.
Ever since he saved her from being killed nine years earlier, he had trouble sleeping because all he wanted was make sure she was safe and okay. He was instantly drawn to her that night he saved her and as time went on, he slowly started falling in love with her but then when Alex came back into the picture, he thought he still loved Alex but then he realized he only loved Alex like a sister and the person he truly belonged with was Catherine.
Eventually, he gave up trying to fall asleep. He got out of bed and put on a shirt and changed out if sweatpants and put on a pair of jeans and put his shoes on and his jacket and quietly slipped out of the warehouse, making sure he didn't wake JT and made his way to her apartment. He was gonna sit on her fire escape and just watch her, he didn't care if that made him sound like a stalker, he watched over her for the past nine years and if he was lucky that she would be awake, he would finally tell her how he feels and let her know that he will always choose her over Alex.
***DREAMING OF YOU***
Catherine Chandler was standing by her window with a blanket wrapped around her, staring up at the sky, wishing she could see the stars but since she was in New York, she would never see the stars. She had just woken up from a dream about Vincent and her. She dreamed that there was no Muirfield, no beast, just Vincent and her; together, not watching their every move and not an ex-fiancée, trying to win him back, just Vincent and her. She dreamed that he was right there with her, holding her to him, very tightly and never letting her go but she knew it was just a dream and it would never happen unless, she built up the courage to tell him how she felt, she tried to during the whole thing with Alex but she eventually gave up, so as of right now all she had were dreams of him and them together.
She wrapped the blanket around her tighter because it was growing colder and her window was open, like it always was. She ended up walking to the kitchen to make some hot chocolate. When the hot chocolate was made, she poured it into a mug and went to the window, to sit on the windowsill, wishing that Vincent was there.
When she got out there, she hadn't realized that her wish had been granted, he was sitting on the steps of the fire escape.
"Aren't you cold?" he asked her, causing her to slightly jump.
"Vincent! You scared me." she told him.
"Sorry. Anyway, aren't you cold?"
"Nope, I sleep with the window open, so sitting out here, is no big deal plus I have hot chocolate."
"I see that but still a blanket isn't gonna keep you warm." he started taking off his jacket.
"Vincent, you don't have to…"
"I want to." he put it around her shoulders. "There you'll be a lot warmer."
"But what about you, won't you get cold?" she asked.
"Nope, since the experiment, I don't get cold easily."
"Is that just a fancy way of putting that you don't get cold at all"
"So, what are you doing, shouldn't you be at the warehouse so JT doesn't have a heart attack?"
"I could ask you the same thing, I mean, aren't you the one working on a big case and you need your sleep?"
"Yes, but I couldn't, I was too busy thinking." she said, slightly blushing because the reason she was having trouble sleeping was right next to her.
"What coincidence, I was having trouble sleeping too." he smirked.
"What was keeping you up?" she asked, hoping it was her.
"Oh, you know the usual JT's snoring." she looked at him in disbelief. "I'm kidding, it was that and I was thinking about this girl." Catherine's face starting turning red. "And if I recall this girl said in a profile that her ideal date was either dinner on the rooftop or hanging out on a fire escape, hey, actually I think that girl was you."
"Yes, I believe it was. So, basically you were thinking about me."
"Funny thing is, is that I had trouble sleeping because I was thinking about you."
He started to lean closer in to her and she did to him, their lips finally met and pretty soon Catherine's finger were playing with hair and his arms were wrapped around her waist. Vincent's tongue swiped her bottom lip, awaiting entry; Catherine opened her mouth and his tongue entered. Their tongues started dancing with each other and eventually, they both pulled away, needing air.
"So, based on that kiss, I guess I don't have to worry about you going back to Alex."
"Nope, I'm staying with you, now and forever. I love you, Catherine. I've always loved you. I was just too blind to realize how much I love you."
"I love you too, Vincent."
And with that, their lips met each other again and this time, Catherine moved to sit on his lap and Vincent kissed her neck. Eventually, Catherine pulled away and moved her lips to Vincent's ear and whispered.
"Vincent...make love to me."
"Are you sure?"
"I've never been more sure about anything."
And with that Vincent stood up, wrapping her legs around his waist and he gently brought them into her bedroom, pushing his jacket off of her, while he was at it, he gently laid her down on the bed and slowly lifted her shirt up and he pulled it off of her, his lips found their way to kissing her chest, while her fingers played with the hem of his shirt and finally, he pulled it off, letting Catherine see his well-toned chest and her fingers ran all over his chest.
Vincent started to feel the Beast inside of him; start wanting out so Vincent pulled away from her and sat on the end of the bed. Catherine automatically figured out what was wrong and she sat up on her knees, directly behind him, and she wrapped her arms around his neck.
"I don't want to hurt you."
"You won't. I trust you. I know you won't hurt me. You just need to trust yourself."
"Then, trust that I trust you. You won't hurt me and how will we know, if we don't at least try."
He turned around and got on his knees just like Catherine and started to kissing her again and then finally they both fell back on bed, with a night full of love and passion ahead of them. They both got what they wanted a night in each other's arms, dreaming with each other, now and forever.
