Vaughn hung a towel over his shoulder as he walked to answer the door. Sydney smiled as she turned to face him. She was wearing a small black dress with a slit up one side to her mid thigh and a low neckline. Spaghetti straps that crossed over on her back held up the dress. Her hair was twisted into a tight bun at the back of her head. As he looked her over, he noticed that she had his sweater hooked over her forearm.

He was snapped away from his thoughts when she spoke quietly, almost like a shy teenaged girl on her first date "you're staring"

"Huh? Oh, sorry… it's just, you look amazing." He smiled warmly when she blushed "come on in!"

Once she was inside, she turned to look him over as he closed the door. He was wearing black suit trousers, held up by a leather belt with a silver buckle, and a smart dark blue shirt.

"Now who's staring?" he asked playfully as he indicated for her to move into the kitchen with him.

"Wine?" he lifted the bottle from the counter and turned to face her. She smiled and motioned with her index finger, for him to approach her. He did, and was pleasantly surprised when she took the last step, closing the gap between them and catching his lips with her own. He hummed against her as she slid her arms around his neck at the same time he held her waist with one hand while stroking her bare back with the other.

"I forgot we were allowed to do that," he admitted when they parted.

"Here" she said with a smile as she held his sweater up "I washed this for you"

"You didn't need to do that. It was clean and only worn for about half and hour"

Sydney bit her lower lip and shook her head.

"I slept in it…" Vaughn took the sweater from her hands and pulled her closer to him.

"I take it you like my sweater"

"well it smelled so good, just like you… and after that kiss…. I just couldn't take it off" she blushed when she saw the amused expression in his eyes "I think I'll be quiet now before I embarrass myself any more"

He kissed her again lightly "but you're so cute when you're embarrassed!"

Then his lips were on hers again as she stroked the back of his neck lightly.

"I could get used to this" she stated between kisses. "So, what smells so good?"

"Besides my sweater?" he teased, earning himself a light slap on the arm. "That would be dinner. I remembered that you like Italian!"


When they were finished, they moved into the living room with their wineglasses, and sat facing each other on the couch.

"The house seem somewhat empty!" she stated after about half an hour of chatting

"Yeah. I sent my mother out with Pierre. I figured things might get out of control with two guys fighting for your attention." He smiled as he watched Sydney's cheeks turn an attractive rosy pink. "You really do look gorgeous tonight.

Her heart almost pounded out of her chest as Vaughn took her glass from her hand and placed it next to his on the coffee table. He slid closer to her, leaning in and taking her lips in a tender kiss.

The kiss was quickly getting out of control, as he pulled her closer to him, forcing her to move onto his lap, one leg either side of him as her short dress rolled higher up her thighs. She held his face as their passion skyrocketed.

Vaughn groaned as she moved her attention to the tender spot just below his ear.

This was exactly how he had dreamed this would happen only the reality was much better than the dreams. He was short of breath as he closed his eyes concentrating on the feel of her lips against his neck.

"Let's go upstairs" he managed to pant in a low whisper. Sydney nodded against him but didn't move. He stood, forcing her to her feet. She continued to kiss him, arousing feeling within him that were so powerful he didn't think they were possible to feel until that moment.

He scooped her up into his arms, as she continued to kiss his neck and nibble on her ear. He almost ran up the stairs, kicking open his bedroom door and closing it again with his back as he returned her to her feet. They stumbled over to his bed, and collapsed onto the soft matters


*** The next morning ***

Marie walked into her son's bedroom as she did every morning. She moved straight over to the curtains ready to open them. She froze with one hand poised to open the curtains and let in the morning light. She bent slightly and lifted a black strapless bra.

She spun around to face the bed and began to glow with joy at the scene before her.

The thin bed sheets covered Vaughn from the waist down. He was hugging Sydney close to him, her head resting on his shoulder, one arm clinging to him. From the tangled state of the sheets, and the fact that they were both naked, it was obvious what had happened the night before.

Both were wearing small, contented smiles as they slept in each other's arms.

Marie left the room silently, closing the door behind her.

She couldn't keep the smile off her face as she went to make sure her younger brother kept well away from her son's room.



There you go. With a little help from a loving parent, they both got what they wanted… each other! : -D

If anyone wants me to write a short piece about what happened between V and S that night after this leaves them to it. Just let me know.

Please R&R.
