Willow looked at herself in the mirror and grimaced. "I really need to stop taking fashion advice from Buffy," she muttered, taking off the offending shirt and lobbing it angrily at the mirror. While it was probably nice enough, and would be perfect for Buffy and all of her vampire slaying, it looked all wrong on her.
Letting out a soft yawn, she pressed her palms flat against the glass. Tara should be home any time now, and she wasn't even fully dressed yet.
From somewhere behind her, soft footsteps eased toward her, a floorboard slightly creaking. In the reflection of the mirror, Willow caught a glimpse of her visitor. "Tara," she said, turning around and smiling, a sense of awe filling her voice. "You look…"
"I thought you'd like it," Tara replied, her face reddening into a slight blush.
"You look amazing." The sight of Tara in a long white dress, her hair loose – it was a vision of innocence, an angel without wings. And it took Willow's breath away.
"How about you finish getting dressed and we can find something to eat, together?" Tara asked, taking in the pleasant sight of a half-dressed Willow standing in front of her.
"Or," Willow said with a devilish wink. "You can come over here…" Trailing off, she left the conclusion of her thought processes up to interpretation.
"Mmm. I think I like your idea better," Tara replied, stepping closer to Willow and wrapping her arms around her waist. "So many options…"
"No more talking," Willow said, closing off Tara's mouth with a silencing kiss. It was time for them to do some interpreting.
