An hour later when they finally exited the shower after Jane insisted he made sure she was thoroughly clean, they stumbled, jelly legged, to the huge king sized bed...
Crisp Egyptian cotton linen greeted them...
They literally threw themselves down and snuggled under the sheets, quite content...
It was only just a little after eleven p.m but both were exhausted, what with the days activities and the weather hadn,t helped either...
Who were they kidding? It was the weather,s fault in the first place, but neither one would be complaining...
There were two things going through both their minds as they lay tangled together...
What exactly did the other want out of this? and secondly, what would they tell the team?*

Chapter 8: Were do we go from here?

The early rays of dawn slowly crept through the blinds in Lisbon's bedroom.
Legs tangled amongst the crisp cotton sheets, their breathing, slow and heavy ...
Tired blue eyes opened slowly, trying to focus on their goal...
A small smile graced Patrick Jane's lips as his eyes focused on the woman who lay before him tangled within his grasp...
He started to blow lightly on her nose hoping to wake her up slowly..
Her had found out that she was highly sensitive in that particular part of her body and he would Always remember that and of course other places too ...

She started to stir, wondering what the intrusive blowing was.
Ah...Jane...has to be Jane...
she smiled to her self , remembering how sweet and loving the insufferable man really was when you stripped him of all layers...literally!
Slowly, emerald eyes met blue...
A crinkled smile gave way to a full blown one and she moved forward an inch to press her lips to his...
He smiled into every kiss, nipping at her bottom lip, asking for entrance...
she willingly obliged, opening her mouth and her tongue met his, slowly carressing and tasting him...
Hands slowly caressed hips, legs thighs...
There was no rush. they had an hour before the alarm made an appearence...
She doubted they would make love this morning, but heck. she wanted to be woken up like this ,by this man ,every morning of her life!
He was so tender, so warm, so loving, it nearly made her cry...
He nuzzled his nose aginst her warm neck and kissed her pulse point..
she groaned in response to his ministrations and he smiled and nuzzled her more...
He kissed her temple and smelled her hair...
Oh how he loved her smell...cinnamon mixed with sandalwood...
They lay there cuddled and tangled together, content...
Teresa was the first one to speak...
"Patrick?" she whispered..."Are you happy with how we are progressing? or is it too soon or too much of a commitment for you?"
Patrick Jane looked down at the brunette in his arms and smiled softly..
"Teresa"..." you never cease to amaze me. but to answer your question? i am ready to move on. I am, but only if you will take the long walk with me".
He slowly sat up and and showed her his ring finger. the golden band glinted in the morning rays that streamed across the bedroom..
He slowly brought his right hand up and proceeded to remove his wedding band from his ring finger...
He opened Lisbon's hand and dropped his wedding band into her palm and enclosed her fingers around it..
Shocked and stunned were the only two words in Lisbon's vocabulary at that moment..
"Teresa?" "Please say something"...
She looked up at him and lunged!
She kissed him with such a force so strong ,he went tumbling back onto the bed...
She plunged her tongue into his warm wet depths...
They finally came up for air...
Foreheads touching, eyes watering, smiles never faltering...no words were needed. the looks said it all...
but she had to let him know. she just had too...
"I love you so much Patrick"...
"And i love you my dearest Teresa"...
They lay there, shocked and stunned at whispered confessions...
Lisbon was the first to speak...
"I think, Mr Jane, the office can wait a little longer huh?"
Patrick literally leered at her...
"Oh i like this new Lisbon, but i don,t want to forget the one i fell in love with though"...
she smiled..."Oh she,s stil here..." " Somewere"...
