Authors note: Sorry guys, filler lol. Been busy with work.
As much as Arthur hated this idea, he left for home, leaving Eames and Ariadne alone together at the workplace to talk, under Ariadne's request. Eames was leaning back in his chair looking unamused. Ariadne stood in front of him and crossed her arms.
"...Are you mad?" She asked softly, quietly to where Eames barely heard it.
"About what?" Eames gave a smirk.
"That I'm with Arthur now?" She asked and pulled the chair over to sit infront of him.
Eames sighed and rolled his eyes. "Mad? No. Jealous? Yes. Very much."
"Look, I didn't mean to-" Ariadne began but was cut off.
"Then why did you let me kiss you?"
Ariadne sighed and put her head down into her hands. There was an awkward silence for a long time, until Eames heard her start to sniff.
"Hey, woah woah, darling?" He said and lifted her chin up with his index finger. He saw her nose and cheeks red, tiny tears rolling down her cheek. 'I didn't mean to make her cry...' he thought to himself and sighed. "Why are you crying?"
"...I didn't want this to happen." She took a deep breath in. "I didn't want you and Arthur to hate eachother because of me. I didn't want to choose between you and Arthur, because I do love you both. I didn't want you to be jealous. I didn't want any of this." She sniffed again. Eames cupped her face with both hands and she gently grabbed both his wrists looking up at him.
Eames sighed. 'Theres no reason for me to be a prick to her...theres no reason for me to be jealous of her and Arthur..' He thought to himself.
"Ariadne...I will admit darling, that you drive me mad. Seeing you makes my days brighter. But...I honestly rather see you happy with Arthur instead of crying over this situation, love." He brushed the hair out of her face and wiped the tears off. She sniffed again, and wiped her face.
"I just feel too guilty." She said quietly.
"Theres no reason to feel guilty. I already got what I wanted. I already had a kiss, I get to see you everyday, and hell, we're going in a life threatening job together tomorrow! I'd say thats a total package, love." His big lips curved into a smile and let out a chuckle, making Ariadne laugh a bit too.
"But...what happens to us after the job is done?" She asked. Eames gave her a small smile.
"Well thats for destiny to decide, darling."
Ariadne flung herself into his arms so hard it knocked him off balance for a slight second, she wrapped her arms around him and burried her face into his neck. They stayed like that for a long time, he gently rubbed her back and sighed a comforting sigh. "Let me walk you back, love." He said.
Eames walked her home, standing at her door. Eames bent down so he wasn't towering over her, and put his hands on her shoulders. "The flight is at 10:00 tomorrow, make sure you set your alarm." He gave her a small smile and she nodded. He kissed her on the cheek soft and slowly, closing his eyes and letting out a deep sigh. "Be safe, love. And I'll see you tomorrow." He rubbed her shoulder before letting go of her.
"Goodnight, Eames." She said and smiled as he walked away, when his hands in his pockets. Ariadne unlocked her door and stepped in, shutting and locking it. She let out a sigh, and threw her shoulder bag onto the floor, walking passed her living room.
"Miss me?" Arthur stood up off the couch, Ariadne jumped and yelped. "Hey, calm down, it's just me." He walked up to her and held her close.
"What are you doing here? You nearly gave me a heartattack." She murmur'd.
"You keep a key under the pot by your door wasn't exactly hard to find. I wanted to make sure you came home safe." He pulled her tighter. "We have a long day tomorrow."
"We do." She said and sighed.
Arthur loosened his tie and rolled up his sleeves "C'mon." He grabbed her hand and pulled her into her room, picked her up and layed her on the bed. He crawled on top of her, and kissed her passionately, and collapsed next to her, wrapping his arm around her waist pulling her close to him. He layed his head on the pillow, next to her neck to where she could feel him breathing. She let out a deep sigh, her mind clouded in thoughts just before they both fell asleep together.
