She's standing at the window, looking out over the Scottish landscape, watching the night sky.   The moon is new, and without the competing light, the stars are spectacular.  River kneels up on the window seat and touches the controls that bring the opacity down to zero.  Starlight isn't as bright as moonlight, but it's still enough that she can make out the horizon.  The landscape is stunning.

She settles back, sitting on her heels, arms crossed over her chest, hands rubbing her upper arms, smiling up at the night sky.

He said yes.

He said yes.




She can't help but wonder...  What comes next?

There's a shadow making it's way back from the now dark forge, a smaller one at its side. Neither seems to be in a rush, though they do break off to chase each other for a bit.

Eventually, the shadows break apart again and continue their way to the bar. Shortly after they've disappeared inside, the door to the flat opens.

River! Damocles reaches her first, saying hello rather enthusiastically.

See, this? This is awesome. This is why having too people in the flat is such a great idea. Dam couldn't be happier.

'lo. Richard's watching them in mild amusement as he sets his night time snack on the counter. He's still grimy from the forge, but his hands are at least clean.

He heads towards River to give her a proper hello.

"Spoiled." You're lucky I have to take a shower.

Dam just grins at him.

"It was well enough," he says, leaning in to carefully kiss her. He doesn't want to transfer any of his soot. "How was your's?"

It's so nice to have someone besides a dog greet him like that.

"Oh, only three?" He teases because he can.

"I brought some paradoxes up from the bar, but I could go for something more.

"Particularly if I shower first." The longer he waits, the hungrier he'll be.

"Fair enough." He gives her another kiss then heads for the bathroom, hoping that when he comes out his clothes won't all be green or something.

He doesn't loiter beneath the water and takes the door to the bedroom for fresh clothes, another tee and a comfortable pair of trousers. Nothing fancy. He returns to the main room with his hair still damp to have the smell of steak done rare lure him to the kitchen table. River's put candles out, light flickering over the food, and soft jazz echoes from the study.

"What's all this, then?" His tone is one of mild, yet happy, surprise.

Wait.

He hasn't forgotten an anniversary or something, has he?

From: [identity profile] captainryan.livejournal.com
Phew. He hasn't missed an important date, then.

He still feels a bit underdressed.

"It sounds lovely," he says, a little distracted by having her that close. She smells better than the steak.

"Though I haven't been dancing in quite some time."

Nor is he particularly talented at it.

He swallows, clearing his mouth. "Really? I haven't met her myself, though Ray mentions her upon occasion. How did that go?"

The dinner is really good, though... "Are the paradoxes still on the counter?"

He grins unashamedly as he grabs one of the fried things. Paradoxes are odd, but he admits he likes them every now and then.

"I can understand that. I'm rather more likely to key in on words like 'Time Lord' myself."

"Bar's specialty. They're called paradoxes." He smiles a little, mischievously challenging, and passes the basket back.

"Try one."

Date: 2009-05-03 04:57 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] captainryan.livejournal.com
He smirks right back.

"By all means, don't let me stop you." He takes a generous sip of his wine as well.

He may be considering abusing the fact that he doesn't get drunk easily.

Richard finishes chewing, eyeing her thoughtfully.

"And what's for dessert?" he asks, sniffing curiously.

"Not even a hint?"

Look at those puppy dog eyes.

(He's really bad at puppy dog eyes.)
