((I still owe two Dice threads, but it’s time for me to go. Night all!))
"I’ll remember to speak more often then, so I can annoy the catnip out of you with it."
“I can wait. If or when you’re ready to say it back, all I ask is that you mean it. Don’t do it out of obligation… please.” He nuzzled the side of her head, pressing a kiss there.
"I won’t. I promise." She gripped his shirt tightly, taking a shaky breath. She eased back out of his hold, carefully putting on a neutral expression. "Would you like for me to go?"
He shook his head, “No, I never want you to leave. We have jobs and lives that demand we spend time apart, but I like having you around.” He softly smiled, his hands resting on her waist.
"I’m not saying leave-leave. I wouldn’t- I just thought you might want a moment alone, after I didn’t…” She was actually starting to look flustered, cheeks growing a little red. Now that he had calmed her down, the reality of what he’d said was setting in.
Thackery’s hands instantly went to her waist, deepening the kiss. “What’s the occasion?”
“I will, but you have yet to do anything I don’t like.”
"Give it time, Thackery. I’m sure I’ll manage something.”
“Dinah… Unless you’re planning on becoming a completely abusive bitch on an everyday basis, then I really don’t think you will. I understand you’ll have bad days, but… I still can’t see you becoming like that.”
"I don’t plan on it. And I don’t think I’d try to hurt you. But Alice knows how annoying and clingy I can get.”

“You really don’t need to thank me, but I’d love to see it on you.” He smiled, nodding towards the garment, “I mean, to make sure I got the right size and everything.”
"Of course, simply for the sizing. No ulterior motives." She tilted her head to the side, a smirk present for a moment before she placed the dress aside and stood. She cast him a half lidded glance before turning her back to him and shucking the T-shirt and shorts she’d been wearing, any thought of making it sexy quickly vanishing in her haste to get to her present. She turned back only enough to grab the dress, holding it up to herself a moment and smiling very softly, before shimming it on. She held the front tight to her chest, pulling her hair off to the side.
"Tie it for me?"
“Seeing you in it is it’s own reward.” Thackery watched in amusement, simply glad she at least seemed to like it. He put his hands on her shoulders, dragging them across her back and drawing the ribbons into place, tying them carefully.
"Such a sweetheart." She could hardly stay still while he tied it, bouncing on the balls of her feet and bounding to the vanity mirror to admire the outfit. She bit her lip as she smiled, looking back at him. "It’s gorgeous. I love it." It bared repeating. "Thank you. I’ve never gotten something so nice before."
((In other news, I actually looked at a litter(?) of bunnies today and considered buying one. I’m too afraid to have one around my dog, so i decided against it for now. But they were really really cute, and their fur was all soft and one pooped on me and I got to hold a bunch and watch them sleep and it was great.))
Being kissed against the wall for a second time within two days was a compliment, but a little shocking non the less. When the kiss was over she took a breath. “Well hello to you too Dinah.” She looked at Dinah quizzically. “So, what was that about?”
"Now that you mention it, this place does seem to be a little male dominant in it’s population. No worries though, just means we’ve got more to choose from I guess. Here." She paused to pull out her phone to hand to Dinah."Go ahead and put your number in there."
She took the phone gingerly, inputting her number slowly. “It does limit the pool to just guys, but I get what you mean.”
"Well you’re welcome to give me a call too if you’re feeling like hitting the bars and can’t find anyone to go with. I can text you once yours In my phone." Lilly smiled, happy that Dinah had been nice enough to give her a chance.
"Brilliant." She handed the phone back, smiling brightly. "I’ll hold you to that. There’s only so many times I can stand taking the boys with me and seeing them get swarmed."
