It started with a single touch - just a mere stroke of fingertips against her exposed skin. Seemingly innocent, it managed to awaken something she didn't think could ever exist, not between them. It did, though, and suddenly she couldn't think about anything else. A fire started to consume her, begging to be extinguished, even if it would complicate things. [Sirimione, AU]
