Summary: My spin on what happens after the bowling alley, not sure where this is going but Reddie all the way!!

"Are you calling me a liar?" Rachel exclaimed placing her hands on Eddies chest. Eddie, Mr Lawson, her deputy she thought to herself. The man who had stood by her through thick and thin, who didn't care about her past, who despite the fact that she kept pushing him away he kept coming back. The man who she was completely and utterly without a doubt 100% madly in love with.

"I'm far too much of a gentleman to say that!" Eddie replied. Their eyes locked together. He looked into her eyes. She is without a doubt the most beautiful woman I have ever seen, eddie thought to himself. She is stunning, brave, witty and caring. Often too caring for her own good, always helping others at her own expense. But she was so defensive, she never let anyone in, never let anyone help her.

Rachel took her chance, she closed the gap between them and kissed him. Eddie was slightly taken aback, but not unhappy about this. He quickly responded to the kiss, snaking his arms around her waist. Rachel responded by running her fingers through his hair. It felt so good, so right. She was so glad she had finally let down her defences.

They pulled apart, the need for oxygen becoming too great. Rachel stared at Eddie, seeing the fear running through his mind, fear that she didn't want this.

"Rach.." he began but was cut of by Rachel placing a sweet kiss on his lips.

"I want this" Rachel assured him. Eddie grinned that 100 watt smile that made her legs turn into jelly. It was at this moment that Eddie realised that they had been stood like this for a really long time. He looked around to see several people staring.

"Hey, lets get out of here" he said wanting to have some time to spend with Rachel. Just Rachel.

"Mine for a drink?" She suggested, revelling at the chance to spend some time with Eddie. Just Eddie.

They return their shoes and stroll out of the bowling alley, Eddie with his arm wrapped around her waist.

Rachel opened the fridge and took out a bottle of wine, she grabbed two glasses and made her way to the living room where Eddie was waiting for her. The drive home had been tortuous, it had felt like it took forever. She sat down next to Eddie, as close as she possibly could just wanting to feel him next to her. He opened the wine and filled the glasses.

"To us!" Eddie toasted as he took a drink.

"To us!" Rachel mimicked, grinning, not quite been able to believe how happy she was. She snuggled into his chest, never ever wanting to be apart from him again, slowly drifting to sleep.

Once he was sure she was sound asleep, Eddie whispered to her.

"I love you."

"I love you too" Rachel replied, she wasn't quite asleep yet. This took Eddie a by surprise a little but relaxed in the knowledge that she loved him. She truly loved him. He smiled as they drifted off to sleep together perfectly content, wine left undrunk.

A/N Ok so I know not a lot has happened but I'm super tired. Hope you all like it, let me know!!!
