A/N: Sorry for the lack of updates, school's a bitch right now but I will TRY to be more regular with my updates; at least one a week, but anywho, here's chapter 9!

Chapter 9

Nami's eyes opened slowly when she felt movement next to her. Rolling to her side, she saw Sanji sitting up in bed, a cigarette in his mouth. The movement was Sanji leaning over the side of the bed to search through his pants pockets for his lighter. Nami grumbled and sat up, plucking the cigarette from his mouth. Sanji's eyes widened a bit in surprise.

"Hello Nami-san. Sleep good?" He asked, a grin on his face. She smiled, breaking the cigarette.

"Hai. I'm a bit sore but I'm fine. You need to break this habit." She said firmly. Sanji set the lighter on the nightstand and reclined against the headboard, his hands moving behind his head.

"Awfully hard to quit now Nami-san." He remarked casually, his eyes closing. Nami frowned grumpily, then grinned devilishly. She slid her body over him and straddled his hips, making him groan.

"Oof…that felt good…" He sighed, a smirk on his face, opening one eye and staring at her. Nami leaned forward and stared temptingly at him.

"If you quit smoking I'll perform wild sexual acts with you whenever and wherever you want." She said slowly, bribing him. Sanji wanted to destroy his entire supply after that statement. His hands slid down her back and grasped her hips, pushing her against him. Nami moaned in pleasure.

"Anytime I want?" Sanji tested, his fingers gripping and kneading her skin.

"Ahh…hai…hai…" She sighed. Sanji smiled and rolled her off his body, sliding over her and keeping his arms firmly around her.

"I wish we had more time…I just want to hold you for hours…" Sanji whispered, kissing her ear. Nami smiled peacefully.

"Me too…" She replied softly. Sanji hummed contently in response. Nami curled tight against him, dozing off again, wrapped in warmth.


Another hour dragged by when Nami woke first. Stretching a bit, she was about to slide out of bed when she noticed how peaceful Sanji looked resting. A smile formed on her lips and she leaned down slowly, planting a kiss on his cheek. He moaned softly but stayed asleep. Sliding out of bed, Nami pulled her clothes back on and ran her fingers through her hair to get rid of some of her bed head. Sitting back down on the edge, she was sliding her sandals on when a hand touched her side and started moving up and down.

"You need to get dressed now. The others will be back any moment." Nami warned. Sanji grumbled a bit, sitting up and leaning over the edge of the bed for his clothes. Sanji stood up and slid his pants on, buckling his belt then slipping into his shoes. Nami retrieved his tie while Sanji pulled on his shirt and started buttoning up the front. She tugged the tie around his neck and started to fix it when Sanji looked at her.

"Nami-san…do you have any regrets?" He asked tentatively. Nami grinned.

"None come to mind at the moment." She answered, finishing with his tie. Sanji ran a hand down her cheek, lifting her chin to face him.

"That's good to hear." He smiled, leaning down and kissing her lips tenderly. Nami hummed in bliss.
