_________________________________________________________________________________


The world was soft, and warm, and moved to the rhythm of the other woman’s breathing, eased and sleepy under Willow‘s ear. She nestled into Tara’s soft, pillowy chest - one of the many wonderful things about dating a woman - and glanced up at the clock through half-open eyes. Her alarm was due in three, two, one..

Beep. Beep. Beep.

She always woke just seconds before the alarm. Years of class at the same time every day had her internal clock perfectly tuned.

The woman next to her pulled away to prod the alarm into silence, mumbling sleepily, “It’s time for class, Will.“

“But..“ The witch’s voice was a groan, face burying in the crook of Tara’s neck. “I was dreaming.”

“Mm,” Tara blinked down at her sleepily, fingers lifting to move lazily through copper red hair. “About what?”

She answered in a yawn, “Pancakes.”

Tara giggled, and Willow decided to leave out the part about the pancakes flying around her head like little UFOs, and dipping under a magically pouring fountain of syrup.

“Class,” Her girlfriend reminded.

Willow nestled her face in against her lover’s skin, fingers tangling up into Tara’s long, mussed hair with a whimper.

She was just so comfy.

And outside of the bed it was cold, and wet, and Tara-less. Outside, bad. Bed, good.

“You know,” Willow opened one eye tentatively, watching Tara‘s face, “it’s not like I have to go..”

“Willow Rosenberg,” Tara’s voice was all disbelief, “are you talking about ditching class?” Her lips tilted up in a playful, charmingly crooked grin. “I didn’t think you had it in you.”

“Well..” Willow propped herself up on her elbow, eyelashes fluttering. “That depends. Do I get rewarded for staying?”

“Like with pancakes?” Tara teased, biting down on her lip.

Shifting til her hands and knees pressed into the mattress on either side of Tara‘s hips, Willow crawled up her lover’s body with a smirk. “That’s not exactly what I had in mind..” Chest to chest, Tara’s arms wrapped invitingly around her, the blonde’s eyes twinkling with the best kind of mischief.

Her gaze fixed on the upturned corner of Tara’s mouth, where she took to placing soft pecks, until gentle fingertips guided her chin straight, and an insistent tongue traced the curve of her lips. Her mouth opened instinctively, for what felt like it was going to be a long, deep kiss-

Until Tara abruptly went still beneath her, pulling back.

“Baby, wha-”

“Miss Kitty.” She followed Tara’s eyes to the kitten perched silently on her now empty pillow, tail flicking back and forth, round eyes fixed on them curiously. “She’s..watching.”

Willow buried her face in the sheets, muffling her laughter as Tara protested, indignantly. “Will! She’s our child!”

“Miss Kitty,” Willow giggled, reaching out to scratch under the kitten’s chin, who rewarded her with a soft purr. “Your mommies need alone time.”

With a flick of her wrist, Willow sent the feathery cat toy on the nightstand hovering through the air, to float temptingly over the feline’s head, before levitating over to the other side of the room, where it continued to wiggle-waggle in circles over eager paws.

“Now,” Willow turned back to Tara with a smile, their noses touching. “Where were we?”

“Rewarding you,” Tara purred, “for being a naughty, class-ditching girl.”

Willow grinned, and let the woman under her pull her down into a second kiss.

Sure it was calculus, and they were just starting up on differential equations - her favorite. But staying back?

So worth it.

*applauds*

This is made of cute.

Totally.

I loved every bit.

You perfectly captured that warm, lazy feeling of not wanting to get up for class, and I adored Miss Kitty and Willow's use of magic to 'play' with her. Also? Can I get a reward, too?

:P

*snuggle* You are a daaaarling. Thank you so much for the sweet b-day gift! Love, love, looove.

The kitty watching was no doubt the best part. Besides, you know, everything else that was amazingly cute about this. <3

Not like that, oh-no-the-cat-is-watching thing has ever happened to me or anything.. -side glance-
Lilylavastar on February 2nd, 2009 01:36 am (UTC)
Aaaaaagh. That was amazingly cute. I love the aura of 'don't wanna get up' ness about it, because that's certainly something everyone can relate to.

And if I had Tara as a reward instead of getting up? I don't think the outside world would see much of me. ;)

Awwwwwwww.

This just made me grin so big I think I may have broken my face :-P

Beautiful, whimsical, sensual, and sweet all rolled into one! Perfectly them, and a wonderful glimpse into their very private world. I am so glad you write this pair!

Oh no! Faces are important. They're located near the brain, which has nerves that are connected to the hands, which is how you type up your fanfiction..

The face must not be damaged!

Aw, eeey. I'm so glad you liked it! :D What a beautiful compliment.


I am so glad you write this pair!

This is actually my first time! But it was much fun. I may have to do more..
Lisa: Tillowobiwahn on February 2nd, 2009 03:52 am (UTC)
I may have to do more..

Oooh, yes please! Hehe. I still need to read some more of your unconventional femmeslash pairing fics. I loved the Darla/Lilah one :-D
