|The following morning Laisa & Gregor
||[Dec. 18th, 2006|11:08 pm]
Laisa stirred at little, from her comfortable warm position curled in Gregor's arms, and opened one eye to observe him. She yawned, then ran a hand through her hair, and smiled at him. |
OOC - up to you whether you're awake or not :)
...and he opened his eyes and shifted to see her, smiled back, and said, "I think this was the best night's sleep I've had in months." And knew it was because at the moment, he was Emperor in name only, not deed.
"So... hot tub in a bit?"
"Mmmmmm" Laisa nodded and kissed his cheek, then sat up a little leaning on her elbow. The sheet drapped across her frame making deeply inviting valley and mountains.
"Can we talk to the children this morning, and see how they're doing?"
Gregor was reminded of something Miles had said to him, when they were both rather drunk, right after he and Laisa had become engaged. "You're a lucky man; you'll be able to burrow right in for winter with her." It was a slightly crude way of putting it, but Laisa did look... sheltering, right now.
But first things first. "We can call Vorkosigan House on the comconsole." He checked his chrono and allowed the slightly entitled part of himself to take over. "But it's so early, they probably aren't even out of bed yet. So, hot tub, then call?"
She grinned back at him, and kissed his forehead quickly.
"Yes please. Let me clean my teeth and put my hair up so it doesn't get all wet."
She slid out of bed, and nakely padded into the bathroom, collecting a cotton robe from the wardrobe on the way.
"Will it be warm, or do we have to do something?" she called back to Gregor.
