Disclaimer: I wish I owned Nathan, but other than that I have no l claim to Syfy's Haven.
Audrey knocked on the door and waited for Nathan to answer it. Something had been bothering her ever since she had arrived home and fifteen minutes ago, she had finally convinced herself to come. Sixteen minutes later, she was rethinking that decision.
She reached up to finger the necklace Duke had given her. Lucy's necklace. Her mother's necklace.
She was about to leave when the door opened.
"Parker?" Nathan said, surprised to find her at his door.
"Hi." She said, smiling awkwardly.
"Hi." He replied.
Neither one said anything, they just stood there.
"What did you-" Nathan started.
"I just wanted-" Audrey said at the same time.
They both broke off and Audrey laughed slightly as Nathan smiled.
"You wanna a beer?" he asked her.
"I'd love one." She replied, smiling.
He stepped aside to let her past, shutting the door after her and leading her to the kitchen. He got two beers out of the fridge and opened both before handing her one.
"So…" Audrey said.
"What's up?" Nathan asked. "I thought you'd be sleeping off that horror show of a birthday party we threw you."
"It wasn't that bad." She defended, before relenting. "Okay, maybe it was, but since I was unconscious for most of it…"
"There is that." He agreed.
There was another silence as they sipped their beers.
"How did you know it wasn't me?" Audrey asked suddenly.
"I just did." Nathan replied, not meeting her eyes. "I just knew."
"Bullshit." She shot back. "You don't just know anything. I'm the impulsive one, not you. You need to have a mountain of evidence before even considering something. You're the one who said you didn't know me well enough to tell, so how did you know?"
"Parker…" he sighed.
"Tell me, Nathan." She insisted.
Nathan sighed and set down his bottle before reaching out to her. She involuntarily sucked in a breath as he gently touched her face.
"I haven't felt anything in so long." He said softly. "Not the warmth of the sun, or the wind on my face. Not pain, not anything." He gently caressed her face. "Except this. Except you."
Audrey stared at him in shock as he let his hand fall back to his side.
"That's how I knew." Nathan told her. "I can feel your touch, but I couldn't feel its touch." He sighed. "It did get one thing right. You are special."
Audrey didn't say anything as he turned around and leaned against the counter, his back towards her.
He jumped as he felt her hand on his arm and she gently turned him around to face her. She reached up and gently touched his face, mimicking his earlier movements.
He closed his eyes, relishing the touch. The feeling.
"You can feel this?" she asked softly.
He swallowed, nodding.
She hesitated a second before stretching up to press her lips against his.
Nathan froze for a moment before wrapping his arms around her and holding her tightly, returning the kiss with fervor.
When they pulled apart, they were both breathing heavily. Audrey grinned as Nathan rested his forehead against hers, reviling in every feel of her.
"You're going to kill me, Agent Parker." he told her, smiling. "I can feel it."
"Oh, that's was terrible." She told him, laughing as she swatted his chest.
He grinned at the fact that he could feel her do it.
"So, what happens now?" he asked, not letting go of her.
"Well, I don't know about you," she said, "but I could go for some pancakes."
"The dinner's closed by now." He pointed out.
"Well," she replied, wrapping her arms around his neck, "I suppose we'll just have to find some way to pass the time while we wait."
Nathan matched her grin as he leaned down to kiss her again.
