"I am going to kiss you. I am going to kiss you long and I am going to kiss you hard but make no mistake- I am going to kiss you." And Frasier was true to his word. True he needed a little prompting from Lilith, but he most certainly kissed her. And he kissed her long and he kissed her hard. Diane was thrilled with the turn of events, but no one was more thrilled than Frasier himself. He wasn't looking for love and he wasn't expecting it, not after the disaster that was Diane Chambers. But this –thing- this budding of a relationship could be just what the doctor ordered.

In the afterglow of a very passionate encounter between two people who you would least expect it, Frasier marveled at Lilith's beauty. You'd never take notice of it, not at first, not with her hair pulled back so tightly in her infamous bun. But when she let her hair down, she was a sight to behold. And now in his arms, well, he most certainly couldn't take his eyes off of her.

"Frasier, why are you staring at me?" Lilith asked coldly.

"I'm sorry sugarlips. I was just admiring your beauty. Does it make you feel uncomfortable?"

"A little." Secretly she was pleased though. She knew she intimated most every man she came across and it was nice to be so openly admired.

"Do you want me to stop?" Frasier asked nervously. Truth be told he was still a little scared of her.

"Not if you don't want another replay of what we just did."

Frasier laughed and then relaxed a little bit. Women-maybe all they needed was a little understanding and affection after all. He dared to gently move her raven hair off her planted kisses along her neckline.


"Yes darling?"

"Am I on the receiving end on one of your many sexual conquests?"

"I beg your pardon?"

Lilith looked at him. "To put it crudely is this a one night stand? I'm a professional adult, I can handle it if this is. I just would like the courtesy of your honesty so that I can catergorize this accordingly."

Frasier was mildy amused. "How would you like to 'categorize' this?"

"I would certainly not like to be a one night stand if that's what you're asking."

"You have a rough way of putting it but I think what you're saying is that you'd like to see where this leads. And Lilith I feel the same way. I see something special in you, something not so visible to the naked eye if you will, but I see someone worth getting to know, worth spending my time with. And hopefully you agree."

"I am not comfortable expressing myself the way you are, I think you will see. But yes, let's see where this leads."

And Frasier kissed her, he kissed her long and he kissed her hard.

And neither Frasier or Lilith ever looked back.
