You Found Me
Ashley awakened to the gentle splatter of raindrops against the window. Opening her eyes, she stared across the darkened room and stared at the wet window. The plop, plop, plop of fat raindrops sliding against the glass was soothing. Relaxing as she snuggled against the warm body behind her, she smiled as David Rossi's arm contracted around her waist, his hand heavy and possessively splayed against her naked belly, his breath warm and steady against her shoulder.
She ordered herself to enjoy these peaceful moments. If experience had taught her anything, it was that it wouldn't last. Soon enough, he'd wake up, probably contrite about what they'd shared. He'd tell her that despite how much he'd enjoyed their time together, that it was over. Knowing Dave, he'd offer to be her friend. He'd probably even make a few perfunctory phone calls to check on her over the next few weeks.
And then, she'd be alone.
Swallowing hard, she fought the tears threatening to sting her eyes. She should be used to the feeling of being alone by now. It shouldn't still make her stomach sink and her toes curl. It shouldn't terrify her like this.
Behind her, Dave opened his eyes when he felt her shudder in her arms. Watching as she turned her face into the pillow, her sob muffled, but audible, his heart broke. Lifting himself up on one elbow, he pressed his lips to one rounded shoulder. "Ashley? Cara, turn over," he implored her, covering her sheet clad hip with his hand and urging her toward him.
Reluctantly rolling toward him, Ashley kept her eyes closed, unable to look in his eyes and see the regret she knew would be facing her.
"Talk to me," he whispered, smoothing his thumb over her high, wet cheekbone. "What are you thinking?"
"Nothing," she murmured faintly, dipping her head and tucking her nose under his chin, unsure how to explain herself without sounding like the needy, emotional woman she was.
"Sweetheart, you are a beautiful woman, but a lousy liar," he muttered against her hair. "Now open your eyes and tell me what's on your mind."
"I'm fine," she mumbled, inhaling deeply as his arms closed around her, shifting her over him. Gasping as her body settled above his, she felt him cup her cheeks and force her face up to his.
"That's better," he sighed. "At least I can see your face again." Feeling her squirm against him, he groaned. "Keep wriggling like that and you're gonna have more problems than just talking to me, babe," he warned, dropping one hand to still her hips. "Is this about last night?" he asked softly. "You having regrets?"
"No!" she denied instantly, her cheeks reddening as she remembered how he'd lingered over her, making love to her with his mouth. Her body went hot at the memory and she shivered against him. "It would have been better if you'd let me…"
Cutting off whatever she'd been about to say, Dave covered her lips with his, silencing her in the most effective way he'd found. Tangling his hand in her hair, he anchored her to his mouth, gently kissing away those shadows in her eyes in the only way he knew how.
Brushing the back of his hand against her cheek when she lifted her head a few minutes later, Dave heard her contented sigh, her head dropping back to his chest. "That's better," he whispered when her body relaxed completely against his. "Babe, tell me what's on your mind," he prompted gently, smoothing circles against her bare back, her skin soft and warm against his palm.
"No matter what I say, if I tell the truth…if I'm honest, it makes me sound like some kind of clingy, needy leech," Ashley whispered, rubbing her own patterns in the hair on his chest. She hadn't noticed how furry he was last night, but now, she was noticing all kinds of things she hadn't taken the time to note before. Like how when he was serious, his eyes darkened to the color of a shining onyx…or how his breathing changed when he listened intently to something.
"If you understood how much I've missed you these last months….how empty I've felt, you would know how utterly asinine I think that statement is," Dave replied deeply, toying with a cool strand of her blonde hair, rubbing it between his forefinger and thumb. "Half the team isn't even speaking to me and the half that is? Let's just say that they're actively plotting an unfortunate accident in the field, I think."
Rubbing her cheek against his warm skin, Ashley listened to his soft statement and heard the honesty within them as his jean clad legs tangled with hers underneath the covers. "I know you said you missed me, but…."
"It was deeper than just missing you. I ached, Ash," he confessed huskily. "My ego got bruised pretty badly when you mentioned our age difference that night, and I thought I was doing the right thing when I kept my distance. I wanted you to have the one thing I couldn't offer you…more time."
"Having all the time in the world doesn't really matter if you spend it lonely," she whispered against his neck.
"The way I've heard it, I wasn't the only one miserable. And from what I've seen, you've let it affect your health," he growled as his hands spanned her tiny waist.
"I haven't had much of an appetite," she said with a slight shrug. "The prison was keeping me informed of my father's decline, and we were….we weren't talking. It was all just too much. The people at work were nice….they really respected my privacy. I can't believe Mary called Hotch though," she muttered as she grimaced. "I would have been okay."
"Thank God she did, or I'd still be sitting at my desk, making the same foolish choices," Dave replied, combing his fingers through her hair again, unable to resist the silky touch.
"I…I'm sort of confused, Dave," Ashley said, forcing herself to look at him. "This…what happened last night…it was…"
"A beginning, Ashley. It was a beginning if you'll let it be. I know the chances of making a relationship between us work are pretty dismal. I know that we have a lot of years between us. I know that you've got a lot of baggage. So do I," he admitted. "But we're not happy, cara. Neither of us are."
"You….you want to try to have a relationship?" she asked shakily. "A real one? Not just…"
"Sex?" Dave asked knowingly. "Ashley, why do you think I stopped when I did last night?"
"I thought you didn't want me…that way," she whispered, blushing.
"Oh, I want you," he clarified. "But I wanted to prove to you that this is about far more than just easing a physical need. I don't just want you, Ashley. I want us."
