Six Months

She's eyeing the calender on her desk and the date.  Six months ago, she invited him to dinner.  Six months ago he said yes.  Six months ago, she was still human.  Six months ago and a day ago, she considered herself a ghost -- not among the living.  A memory of a life, perhaps, but not an actual life.

Six months ago, he reminded her that she was very much alive and he's spent every day since proving to her that life is very much worth living.

So she's sitting at her desk, trying to jot down something simple in a note to tell him how glad she is that she met him, how much she loves him, how much he's become a vital part of her existence.  She never thought it could be this good.  And it's all because of him.  But she doesn't think he'd appreciate pages and pages of her pouring her heart out.   She just wants to make him smile, and mark the day.  So she's trying for something quick and to the point.

All that's come out is a silly little ditty, and she's almost embarrassed by how naff it is, but it's quick and to the point.

I can't believe you shredded my knickers,
I can't believe you bit my nose,
I can't believe how much I love you,
Everyday it grows and grows.

Happy first six months,
~River


Completely naff.  So she adds a couple of hearts with an arrow through it, grinning as she tries to picture his expression upon reading it.

Maybe she'll stuff it in his holster or something.

"Oh I know..."

Damocles?

She tucks the note in his collar, and pets his face while she asks him to take the note to its intended recipient. It means she won't see his reaction when he reads it, but she wagers it'll be worth it.

The return note reads as follows:

And many more to come, love.

I don't suppose you have any knickers you want to replace?


Dam thinks this is an interesting new game, if only he knew how to read.

I like to leave my options open.

And Dam's a smart lad. He doesn't want you to steal his job.


Dam is pausing to grab a drink of water.

Truly? He must be running.

I'll be up soon enough. Why, did you need me for something?

Tease.

Damocles returns with an oddly folded note in the shape of a tiny envelope. One of its bottom corners is slightly damp and Dam is begging to have it as River's fingers free it from under his collar.

Someone would choose this moment to knock at the door.

The envelope opens to reveal a small bit of beef, not the deli sort but the greasy roast sort, still warm.

"Room service," comes the oddly-pitched voice from the other side of the box and brown paper bag.

"Special delivery straight from the bar, ma'am."

He doesn't expect this to last any longer than a moment. He's scents pouring in under the food, but it's good fun.

"I don't know, ma'am, he's a pretty big guy and I wouldn't want him to kick my arse."

He drops his voice into a low rumble and lowers his things enough to look over the top of the bag.

"Anyway, it's not worth doing if we work it out quick."

"If you like," he says, licking her taste off his lips and already headed for the counter-top to put things down. He immediately starts pulling out take away boxes and opening them to let their smells fill the kitchen. Parodoxes, roast beef, fresh bread, lemon-buttered broccoli, and, because he was feeling indulgent, a pie for desert.

It should fill them up nicely.

Dam wags his tail and follows after her, hoping the mention of his name gets him another treat.

"You gave him that bit of meat, didn't you," Richard says instead of answering her question. "You're going to make him fat."

Especially if he already had a tidbit downstairs.

"I don't know what you're talking about. I'm certainly not the one who feeds him from the table."

He keeps a straight face through that, too. Pity his scent is far more amused.

"Hand me a couple of plates, would you?"

Okay! As the lowest ranking pack member, Dam is well used to eating last.

"What are you on about? I know you sneak him scraps," Richard accuses as he starts portioning out food.

He bumps her a bit as she passes, just because he can.

"That's hardly an excuse.

"Have you got the silverware?" He's almost done with the plates.

"Silverware, napkins, wine, food; no, I think we're set." He starts bringing the plates over, setting them down in front of two adjacent chairs.

Richard gives her a thoroughly amused (and fond) look.
