Ages, I know. I'm so sorry.

"Thinking about me, aren't you?"

A voice softly spoke from behind her.

Kate smiled.

"Not just you." Kate admitted. "How d'you figure anyway?"

Juliet moved passed her, reaching into the water holder, wetting her face, effectively getting rid the smudge of dirt on her face.

"Well you know," The blonde took a swig from the bottle of water she held in her hand. "You have that thinking-about-Juliet kind of stance."

"Oh really?"

"Yep. Plus, you were all dreamy eyed. And I know I'm the only one around here to evoke that in you."

"Oh really?"

"Yeah. That's an undisputable fact."

"It is now is it?"

"Yes of course. Is there any fault to my statement and this wonderful fact?"


"And what would that be?"

"I don't get all dreamy eyed on you."

"Ouch." Juliet placed a hand over her chest, and then cocked her head, seriously. "You heard that?"

"What?" Kate said looking around.

"The sound of my heart not breaking."

Kate laughed. "That's such a lame comeback."

Juliet smiled. "I know I know."

"That was pretty awful." Kate continued.

"Made you laugh though. Goal reached."

"Now you setting goals to get me?"

Juliet shrugged and walked past her. "Not really."

"Well you should."

"Not really!"

Kate jogged after her, spinning her around by the arm very aggressive-looking for onlookers.

"What did you said?" She feigned anger.

"I said, not really." Juliet shrugged off the brunette's arm.

Kate got in her face.

"That makes me sound so easy."

"Maybe it is just that you are not so hard to get. Better wording?"

"You bitch! Maybe I'm fooling you."

"Maybe I am too."

"Hey, what's going on?" Jack and Sawyer jogged their way.

Immediately, Jack went to Juliet's side and Sawyer to Kate's.

"Nothing." Kate glared at Juliet. "Juliet just being her-overtly-nice-self. You know how nice she can be."

"More that can be said of you." Juliet replied.

By now, they had gathered more than half the camp's attention who were forming a circle around them.

"Just because I don't go playing mind games with people does it make me not nice."

"You sure about that?" Juliet asked crossing her arms.

"Um," Jack cleared his throat. "How about we stop this? Maybe you girls would like to join Sawyer and I by the ping- pong table?"

Kate turned to Jack, not without giving Juliet a small smile.

"I can't believe you. You actually gonna play him?"

Jack smiled his boyish smile. "Why not?"

Kate rolled her eyes.

"Let me know how it goes." She said walking to the woods.

Sawyer just rolled his eyes and went to his tent to retrieve what they needed.

"What was that about?" Jack asked Juliet.

The woman shrugged smiling. "Kate being Kate. Me, being my overtly nice self apparently."

Jack winced. "I'm sorry."

Juliet frowned and smiled, placing her hand over his left bicep.

"There's nothing you should be sorry about."

"I know she can be difficult." He laughed nervously. "Trust me, I know."

"Well, so do I. It's okay Jack really. To tell you the truth, I kinda enjoy these childish arguments."

"Is that so?"

"There 's not much to do around here. Sometimes I just want to get out of here." As she said this, she tapped her fingers against her temple.

Jack smiled sadly. "I hear ya."

The crackling of leaves adverted Kate of somebody's presence.

She didn't even bother to turn her stare away from the waterfall.

"You might wanna go cheer Sawyer up." The invader communicated.

"That bad?"

"I think he pulled something in his arm."

Kate laughed. "I'm guessing he didn't let himself be checked up."

"You would be right."

"Come here." Kate grabbed the standing blonde's arms and pulled her down on her lap.

Juliet squeaked at the sudden move, finding herself on the brunette's lap.

"Guess somebody is really happy to see me."

Kate smiled against the blonde's neck nuzzling it with her nose. "Don't give yourself that much credit. I just like doing that."

Juliet twisted in her grip so she was straddling Kate.

"Right, cuz we've been doing this for years."

"Of course."

"Well, I'm not complaining."

"I know you aren't." Kate said continuing with her nuzzling.

She stopped however and bit lightly the blonde's soft neck.

"Ow!" Juliet inched away. "What was that for?"

"You saying I'm easy."

Juliet rolled her eyes. "It was just a game. Plus, if any, it should be me that has to get back at you for calling me a bitch." And with that she pinched the girl's ribs.

"Ouch. Just calling it how I see-ow!" Kate smiled rubbing at her arm.

"You better don't finish that sentence Kate." The blonde threatened.

Kate raised her hands apologetically smiling a sheepish smile.

"I won't, Juliet." Kate leaned in only to have the blonde lean away. "Ah… kiss me."

"Nope." Burke leaned away again when Kate tried again.



"Mmmm! Kiss me."


"Juliet! Don't make me beg."

"You're already begging darling."

Juliet trailed her fingertips over Kate's chest, pushing her down lightly on the grassy clearing.

"Am I?"

Juliet smiled a dazzling smile with her eyes and mouth that had the brunette's pupils dilating instantly.


Kate gasped when hands that were not hers ghosted over her ribcage down to her hipbone caressing it lightly effectively making her buckle her hips.

She placed her hands over the blonde's hips slowly making her way upwards before going down again and repeating the process.

"Maybe I am." She said.

"Trust me, you are." Juliet said leaning down wrapping her lips over Kate's.

"Will you comply then?"

"Of course I will."

Kate happily let the blonde's hands explore her body enjoying the teasing provided.

"Not that," Kate said in between kisses. "I'm not loving this but-"

"Yeah, I know."


Juliet kissed the offered skin in Kate's neck.

"You better not have done this before."

Kate furrowed her brow smiling. "Uh, okay."

"Cuz I have not."

"I haven't." She chuckled. "You are so weird."

Juliet laughed. "Here I am loving you and you are making fun of me. Does that sound fair to you?"

"Oh c'mon, you make fun of me all time."

"Maybe I should stop." The blonde sat back, putting a finger on her chin. "Give you some time to reflect, that'll do."

Kate smiled, caressing the blonde's thighs while resting on her elbows.

"Oh, you are sending me to my room, now?"

"Keep on with that attitude and I just might."

Kate shook her head. "Threats, threats, threats. That's all I ever get from you."

"Well I must be evil then."

"Plain evil."

Juliet smiled sweetly at Kate making the brunette's heart flutter happily before she kissed her again.
