Disclaimer: Own nothing, just like last time.

Sun S. Li: Sorry about there being no Omake's in the last chapter. Hopefully this one will satisfy your desire for them.

Genesis D. Rose: I didn't hint at the place in the timeline, because I wasn't trying to make one. This would have only complicated things later on. Sufficed to say, this story is outside the mainstream so it doesn't have to follow anything specific.

sheoflittleimportance: I'm planning on having Ritsuko find happiness, only because I can't help but write up stories like that.

Grey Wolf4: Yes, Ritsuko will get to know Shinji better. Rest assured.


Ritsuko Akagi, the bleach-blond genius of NERV, brushed a stray lock of her hair out of her eyes as she continued to work at her computer in her office. It had been a rather long day and she was wondering when it would be over, or just get better.

She sighed, thinking it might just get worse. She stood up to stretch her muscles, pushing the chair out of her way and arched her back, rewarding herself with a sigh as the tension broke.

Suddenly, a pair of hands snaked around her waist, pulling her close to a strong solid body.

She gasped, worried about who it was that had snuck up on her.

I'm too distracted for my own good. She thought.

"How have you been Rits-chan?" a familiar voice whispered into her ear.

"Shinji?" she gasped, her panic leaving as she spun around in the man's arms, seeing the handsome face of her tall 20-year old Shinji Ikari.

He stared at her dark eyes as he pulled her close, foreheads touching lightly.

"Shinji.. What are you doing here?" she asked, happy to see him.

"I came to see you." he said.

"You... really?"

"Of course." he said as he kissed her litely on the lips. "I haven't made love to you all week."

"Shinji..." she said with a blush.

"You're so cute when you blush." he said as he nuzzled her nose against hers.

The pair kissed passionately for several minutes, the young man pressing the woman against her desk to block her escape.

Not that she would have tried.

"I didn't mean to embarrass you, Rits-chan." Shinji said as she looked at her when he stopped his liplock. "But a beautiful woman like you should be made love to. On a regular basis."


"You deserve it, Rits-chan." he interrupted. "You deserve to be happy."

She wrapped her arms around his torso, her head resting on his shoulder as she smiled with content. "I am happy, Shinji-kun. Now that you're here."

"You look tired, Rits-chan." he keenly said.

"I am. A little. I've been working all night on this new Eva project."

"Yeah, I can tell. Maybe I can help."


"Take off your clothes."

"Shinji!" she gasped as she pulled back to look at him.

"I'll give you a massage." he explained.

"Oh." she said with a mild embarrassed blush.


Shinji rubbed and caressed her smooth skin softly, kneading the tensest muscles he was able to find, mostly those of her back. Ritsuko moaned softly as her young lover's hands did their magic. Her body that had one been tense was now relaxed and feverish to the touch. Her mind was calmed and soothed by the concern that he lavished upon her. It was just what the doctor had ordered.

Shinji was sitting on Ritsuko's butt as she lay face-down on the large couch in her office. Her blouse and bra were off and she was resting on them. He moved off of her as soon as Ritsuko was fully and completely relaxed, snuggling down to her side, her bare back pressed up against his still covered chest, his arms wrapping around tightly to hold her.

"Oh, Shinji. Thank you." Ritsuko said with a contented sigh and smile on her lips. "That was just what I needed."

"Anything for you, Rits-chan."

She loved it when he called her that. "But what do you want, Shinji-kun?"

"You." he quickly answered.

She blushed a little. "That's not what I meant." she said as she turned back a little to face him. "I appreciate the answer, but.. what do you want? You've done so much for me, I feel I should do something for you."

Shinji looked at her for a couple of seconds, pulling a stray lock of hair out of her eyes before answering. "You remember when Misato and Kaji spent a week in college just having sex?"

She did remember that. "Yes."

"I want to spend at least a month doing that with you."

She blushed at that.

"And then maybe the next month, and then the next, and then..."

"Alright! Alright! Alright!" she laughed.

"I just want to make you happy Rits-chan. I love you." he said softly.

"Why?" she asked, berating herself for demanding and actual answer.

"What?" he asked.

"Why do you love me?" she asked him.

Shinji just smiled as he pulled her tighter to him. "Because you're the total package, Ritsuko."

"Total package?" her brow curled, looking confused.

"Brains, beauty and such a healthy body too." he said as he squeezed her.

She rolled around to face him, their noses gently rubbing against one another. She absolutely loved the affection he showered her with.

"Oh, Shinji! You've made me happier than I've ever been." she said softly as she gently stroked the side of his face with her hand, a tear falling down her cheek.

"So that means I don't get to make love to the most beautiful scientist in the world?" he asked with a small disappointed pout.

She rolled him over so that she was on top of him.

"Oh, you will, loverboy." she smiled as she nuzzled the side of his face with her nose. "And you'll probably get your month of sex."

"I'm willing, but now that I think about it, that might be a problem, seeing as how your such an important person around here." he pointed out.

"True. Maybe I should take a vacation, dump my workload on Maya and the others."

"Rits-chan! You're not that insensitive. That's one of the reasons I love you." he said, his arms holding her tightly to his body.

"Well, you can't blame me for wanting to be a little selfish." she said, resting her head on his chest.

He suddenly sat up, pulling her into a firm embrace as he kissed her neck adamantly.

"Shinji..." she moaned with closed eyes.

"I love you, Ritsuko Akagi." he whispered.

"I love you too, Shinji Ikari."


The blond scientist was shaken out of her dream by the 14-year old Shinji Ikari.

"Ritsuko-san? Are you alright?" the boy asked.

"Uh.. Fine, Shinji. Just.. a little tired." she said with a smile, rubbing her eyes and realigning her mussed up hair.

"You really shouldn't work so hard." he said, standing close to help if necessary.

"Yes, mother." she smirked.

Shinji smiled as she said that.

"It's late. Just about everyone's gone home. It's just the Night Watch now."

"I know." she said as she switched off her computer and grabbed her purse. "Can you walk me to my car? I can drop you off at Misato's on my way home."

"Sure." he quickly agreed.

Ritsuko and Shinji walked out of her office, the slightly tired scientist using that excuse to wrap her arm tenderly around Shinji's shoulder, giving him a gentle squeeze now and then.

"What are you thinking about, Ritsuko-san?" Shinji asked suddenly.

"Oh... just what you'll look like when you grow up." she admitted.

Shinji blushed at that.

"Why do you say that?" he asked her.

"Well... don't tell anyone I told you this, it'll probably get you teased later."

"Okay." he agreed.

"You're a very handsome young man, Shinji." she said, causing him to blush again. "If you were just a few years older, I'd probably take a run at you myself."

He was as red as a traffic light now.

"Uh... thank you, Ritsuko-san. I'm flattered." he replied.

"And hopefully you won't grow up like Kaji." she grinned.

"I don't know how to be a philanderer." he defended.

"You're off to a good start. Kaji never uses big words like that." she joked.

The pair walked out of NERV just laughing at the little jokes friends often shared with each other. Friends... and perhaps more.


Author's Notes:

Here's my second chapter to this story.

A pretty quick chapter. Not much can be added to make it any better. This is basically an addition and sensual/romantic chapter. There are parts that are a little sappy, but I thought it well-done and even fun to write up.

Any ideas welcome for the next chapter.



"Shinji, this is just ridiculous!" Ritsuko groaned.

"I know what I'm doing Ritz-chan." Shinji grinned as he took out the rolling pin and starting pushing it across her back.

"I'm a woman, not a piece of dough!" she huffed as she felt her muscles getting pressed down.

"Now, just relax as I push out all the tension. Then I'm going to knead you like play dough."

"And your using a rolling pin to do it. JEEZ!"



"Why do you love me?" she asked him.

Shinji just smiled as he pulled her tighter to him. "Because you're the total package, Ritsuko."

"Total package?" her brow curled, looking confused.

"Brains, beauty and such a healthy body too." he said as he squeezed her. "Your hair is as soft as fully cooked pasta! You skin is a pale as undercooked lasagna! Your eyes are as green as ravioli! Your lips are as red as fully ripened tomatoes!" Shinji smiled as he leered at her, looking hungry.

"Hey, Valentino, is this a compliment session or a feeding frenzy?" she asked as she tried to get away from the young man.
