Set: Season one before they married
Written for the rare & small fandoms drabbleathon and the prompt, Antony/Octavia, she finally has something of her mother's.

She knew that Antony was a blowhard and that her mother's desperate affection for him was one of the more pathetic aspects of her advancing age. It didn't matter as Octavia made herself comfortable in her mother's bed. The faked message had gone out an hour ago and she knew Antony well enough that he wouldn't pass by an easy fuck. Even if its with a less than expected lover.

He's all charm when he found her reclining naked on the linens.

Crooking her finger, she sat up and beckoned him forward. Her smile widened as the knowledge sunk in- she finally has something of her mother's.
