Jane knocks softly and waits nervously for Henry to open the door, self-conscious in the borrowed dress from Molly, it's a little more fitting and little shorter than she would normally wear and the heels are killer but Molly can't wear either of them at the moment and insisted she needed both. The expression on his face when he opens the door makes Jane feel suddenly and amazingly very, very sexy.
"You look…stunning." Jane is thinking he looks pretty stunning himself. He is wearing nothing but a towel hung low around his hips, his skin and hair still damp from the shower. He is toned and supple and looks…hot. Very hot.
He pulls her inside, "Hello." He says pulling her into an embrace. "Hi" says Jane wrapping her arms around his neck "I like your outfit."
Henry laughs "What…this old thing?" he leans down and kisses her soundly, Jane is glad he has his arms around, especially in these shoes.
"I ordered some champagne, would you like a glass?" he takes her hand and pulls her into the room. "You pour and I'll be right back." He lifts her hand to his mouth and brushes his lips against her knuckles. Jane pours herself a glass of champagne, knocks it back in one go and pours another and one for Henry. She is having serious doubts about a long courtship.
Henry reappears wearing navy trousers and a crisp white shirt, his feet are still bare and he looks so handsome. Jane hands him his glass of champagne "Cheers." She touches her glass to his "To us and a wonderful evening." Henry says smiling.
Jane watches him as he finishes dressing and she finishes her champagne, she'd better slow down or she'd be throwing herself at him before they even have dinner.
"Shall we go?" Henry offers her his hand and she takes it eagerly. "Yes.
They're seated at a quiet table in a corner of the dark and crowded restaurant, Henry orders more champagne and they begin to talk. They talk about everything, trying to cram in as much as they can in the limited time they have. It's a magical night, the food is delicious as is the champagne and the company second to none. Soft music is playing in the bar and there is small dance floor, Henry pulls her to her feet and leads her onto the floor. Jane rests her head against his shoulder and they sway together to Sinatra. She has never felt this happy in her life.
"Will you stay with me tonight Jane? I don't want to let you go." His voice is soft in her ear and it sends a shiver down her spine. She lifts her head to look at him "I don't want to let you go either." He kisses her tenderly "I'll stay." She smiles and rests her head on his shoulder again as they dance. As the music fades he offers her his arm "Shall we Miss Heyes?"
Jane feels suddenly shy as they enter Henry's room, unsure what he's expecting, they had agreed to take things slow after all but he is so desirable.
"Would you like something to drink? There's white wine or we can order something from the bar?"
"White wine is fine." There is a small sofa under the window and Jane sits, kicking offer shoes as Henry hands her a glass. "Thank you."
"You're welcome." He sits beside her and they sip in silence.
They speak together and laugh, nervous suddenly. "Ladies first." Says Henry
Jane takes a large drink of her wine then places it on the table in front of her, here goes "I was just wondering…have you courted me enough yet?" she swallows and casts her eyes down at her clasped hands, suddenly afraid to look at him. "I know I said I wanted to take things slowly but…" she can't finish because Henry is kissing her passionately. Oh my He pulls her to her feet and then sweeps her into his arms carrying her into the bedroom with a soft "Tallyho Miss Heyes" Jane giggles and then his mouth is on her again as he kicks closed the door.
