SUMMARY:  AU, post-ep for Double Jeopardy, sequel to Hard To Imagine


His visit startles me.  We rarely see each other off-base, I can count on one hand the number of times he's been to my house.

His appearance is a surprise too, his normally closed-off face dancing with emotion I can barely comprehend.  He stands in the doorway looking at me for the longest time before he moves.

I expect him to brush past me but he simply stands in front of me.  He moves swiftly; hands cup my face, thumbs caress my cheeks, lips descend to mine.

When he kisses me, I'm powerless to refuse him.

I want this too.
