ROF #65 - 66 "A bad day of tickling is still better than a good day

ON: <<Ryylar/Petrova's Quarters, SB 47>>

Ryylar sighed. Another long day of watching Sock and Bokma act completely... normal. Nothing he could pick them up on. He wanted so badly for them to step out of line, and he KNEW that the moment he stopped watching, all hell would break loose. They were biding their time and it was grating on the felinoid's nerves.

Kristiana knew all this, ofcourse - and she knew she hadn't ben the easiest girlfriend in the known universe, lately. Add to that that she knew that Ryylar had been going through a tough time, period, she had decided to try to surprise him a bit.

And so it was that when Ryylar came home, he did so to a cosy set of quarters, with the lights dimmed a bit, some candles lit on the living room table, a soft music playing unobtrusively in the background, an excellent meal of Tuna prepared, and Kristiana curled up on the couch, wearing her pyjamas. She looked up and smiled as Ryylar entered. "Hey hon .. How was your workdaday ?"

"If ourrrrr Ssssstarrrrrrfleet Inteligenccccce officccccerrrrr issssss any indication of ourrrrrr arrrrrrsssssssenal againssssst agentssss Sssssock and Bokma... no wonderrrrrrr the Tal Shiarrrrrr laugh at usssss." Ryylar sighed. To say the least, his encounter with Zorach had left him unimpressed, especially with the question of how Ryylar was so sure about Sock and Bokma's agentship in the Tal Shiar.

"Well, that's all then and there, hon .. " As she rose to give him a hug and a kiss, taking his hand to lead him to the couch to snuggle and eat with her. "Right here and now, they don't matter. Here, have something to eat .. "

He blinked and kissed her in return, letting out a very pleased purr and joined her on the couch, the back of his mind wondering what else was up.

"Ssssso how wassss yourrrrrr day?" He asked nonchalantly.

"It was alright .. Some good points, some bad points." As she offered him a plate of a tune meal. "That .. guy .. with the pictures .. Sent them to Hannah and Evans as well. I talked to Caelen about it, and we're going to try to trace him, when he sends to someone again." She spoke, as she snuggled with him. "Last I knew, Evans and LaBrie were busy trying to trace the message that Evans got."

"Oi..." Ryylar said with a sigh. One more thing to worry about.

".. You know what I think of that, hon .." Kris spoke, as she ate as well. "Hannah's reaction to the pics and that guy's attempt to put me in a bad light was to come over here and talk with me, and tell me that she understood and show me that nothing that guy could do was going to ruin our friendship. And that .. has made me feel better about it all."

She sighed a bit, closing her eyes. "Ofcourse, I could've done without Evans getting those pictures .. But if it's going to help us catch the guy .. "

"I know... well I'll get with Evansssss and give him the inforrrrrmation frrrrrrom my trrrrrranssssssmisssssion. I don't know what good it'll do him." Ryylar said with a nod.

She nodded a bit, munching on another bite of food. "Thanks hon .." she yawned. "I'm gonna go to bed early tonight .. And tomorrow I'll start working again. I've deprived LaBrie of my awesomeness for long enough now." she joked.

"Hmmm yesssss I think I need sssssome sssssanity induccccced back into thisssss station. It goesssss to hell without you." Ryylar said, kissing her cheek.

She chuckled softly, opening her eyes again, looking at him. "I love you. Have I ever told you that, before ?" Smiling. "My furry .. little ..pussycat .. " as she grinned and started tickling him.

He chuckled and tickled her back, careful not to hurt her with his claws.

"Gah ! Unfair !" She squealed and squirmed, cackling, trying to stop him. "You're supposed ! To ! Be ticklish ! As well !" she managed between her laughs and giggles as she squirmed in his lap.

He chuckled and giggled as he got a bit more ticklish when she hit his certain spots and then grinned, kissing her deeply to end the tickle fight.

"Mmmmmmm ..." She smiled as she answered the kiss, wrapping her arms around her .. Eventually just resting her chin on his shoulder, eyes closed. "Hold me, Ryylar .. Just like this .. For the rest of the night." she spoke, quietly. "Please ?" she added.

He nodded and smiled.

"All rrrrrrright Krrrrrissss." He assented and smiled, cuddling her.
