Chapter: 1

Pairing: Rob & Laura

A.N: Nothing really racy or exciting. Just rated M for the idea of pre-martial sex. Which could be considered racy for our couple ;)

They had been dating for a while. Three months to be exact. And things on the base were rather quiet at the moment. It allowed them to take long walks and have picnics, and sometimes leave base and go into town.

For Laura it was a non-issue. She was free to come and go as much or as little as she liked. But for Rob it was a big deal. Especially a big deal now. He had secured a two day pass and was excited to tell Laura.

He found her in the PX with Millie, having a soda. "Hi, honey." he leaned down and kissed her on the cheek.

God, she was gorgeous.. How he got so lucky he would never know. "Hi, darling." and her smile was ever so inviting.

He reached for Laura's hand. "Millie, would you excuse us for a moment." he said. "We'll be right back."

Millie nodded. "Sure, Rob."

Laura followed him over to the other side of the room. "Is something wrong, Rob?"

"No, no, nothing's wrong." he assured her. "Everything's right." they were nestled quietly in the corner now. "I just got a two day pass." he flashed a debonair smile.

"You did?" Laura mirrored his bright smile. "That's fantastic." at least it was if it meant what she thought it meant.

"Yeah, so I thought that maybe we could rent a secluded cabin in the middle of nowhere. No one will know and we won't have to sneak around."

His charm was overpowering. "I think that sounds like heaven."

"So you think you can sneak away for a few days without anyone knowing?"

She nodded. "I'll just say I'm going to visit my Aunt Helen. I've left to see her plenty of times before. It shouldn't be a problem."

"Good because I can't wait." he told her. "An entire weekend just the two of us."

She leaned in and kissed him quickly on the lips. "Now don't go bragging to your buddies."

"I'd never." he said. "I'm way too much of a gentleman for that. And the same goes for you too, no telling the girls. Especially Millie."

Laura bit her lip. "I won't say anything." she replied. "But I think she already knows about us."

"Well everyone knows about us. It's obvious that I'm head over heels for you."

"No, I meant I think she already know."

"Oh." he exhaled. "How?"

"She found a pair of men's socks under my bed."

He looked at her puzzled. "What was she doing under your bed?"

"It was her turn to clean." she said. "And I covered the best I could, but I still think she knows."

"Well, let's try to keep this weekend a secret." he said. "I would hate to tarnish your lovely reputation."

"I appreciate that, darling."

"You know I feel guilty enough."

Laura waved him off. "Nonsense." she smiled. "You have nothing to feel guilty for. Besides I don't want anything to spoil our weekend. Especially not your guilt."

"I'll try." he assured her.

"Besides if you felt all that guilty we wouldn't be sneaking away, would we?"

Rob smiled. "No. I suppose not."


I appreciate feedback, thanks!
