You come rolling in with Zero after the OG Candies and Svenja handle the refugees. After passing the checkpoint, you head up to the flat up on Deck 11. When the door opens, you hear your father strumming a tune. What is it?
Zero grins wide, and starts heading to their room. VB is asleep on the bed, completely zonked out. Hump isn't around, neither is Topps. Rinso isn't here, either. He's probably on shift at the infirmary.
What do you do?
I eye the bed, with my Honeybee in it, and every ounce of tension I've had since I left leaves me. I close the door behind me, quietly slip my pack off my shoulder down onto the dresser, slide out of my new jacket, and waddle my way over to the bed. I gently climb into my side of the bed, and shuffle up to her, gently brushing some hair out of her face to get a good look at her.
I can feel my eyes beginning to mist up. I bite my lip, and admire the beautiful woman I've been dreaming about since I left. I don't wanna wake her if she's tired... I could just lie here like this forever...
After a moment, she stirs. You hear her murmur something softly. Then, she opens her eyes to you. She takes in a sharp breath of surprise, "Kiddo?" She scoots closer, pressing herself against you, "Gods! You're here!" She starts kissing your face, little quick kisses, her hands on the sides, not letting you go.
"I missed you! Imissedyou Imissedyou!" More kisses, until she hits your lips. You taste strawberry, it was lip gloss before, now faded, but just enough.
When we finally come up for air, I whisper, "I missed you too, hon... Gods, I missed you..." I kiss her a few more times, deeply and passionately. I shift a little to let Leah get comfortable, then continue my quest to never let go of her again. "Tell me everything I missed. I wanna know everything you did."
She begins catching you up as she starts pulling off your clothes, kissing your body as she reveals every part of it, practically worshiping it, "Well, we have water again! I made a bundt cake! Topps is here, and Hump is miserable about it because she wants to go and he won't leave his family. Rinnie is learning doctor stuff. I found a couple running partners, they're pretty nice. Council meetings suuuuck, you can totally have them back."
VB has made her way to your pants, and slowly unbuttons them. She refuses any hesitation, insistent and delighted in exploring you. "Rinnie and I are good together, but we both miss you, more than your heart can hold, Kiddo. I'm so glad you're back." She scissors her leg between yours once she's stripped your naked, and works her way back up your body.
She gives you a little verbal roadmap of your body as she kisses her way up again, "I missed you so much. There's dirt in your belly-button! Oh my, your boobies are so big now, I really like them, baby. You still smell sexy, did you know that?"
Then she's in your arms again, "Did you get all the baby stuff? Is Boomtown still standing without us? Do you wanna talk about your trip, or just snuggle and stuff?"
I watch her as she comes back up, listing off parts of my body, and complimenting it... Given these compliments are coming from VB, I couldn't possibly feel more beautiful than she's making me feel right now. I smile, and let her get comfortable in my arms. "We can do both, I think... Ma' and me talked a bunch, and Boomtown is trying their best to grow without us... I sold the loft, and got a shitload of jingle for it. I think we'll be good here for a while, at least. I paid off a debt for Brillo, who's downstairs with Caesar watching over the baby stuff."
I take a deep breath, and start listing stuff off, "I paid the Candies to handle the problem with the water cult, I visited Simon's grave with Ma' and extracted Olimpia into a datapad, I saw Jack and Ro... Of all people... Did you know he's married?" I smile, and give her a kiss. "Other than that, people kept wanting to touch my belly, and I got propositioned." I make a sour face then giggle, "but you and Rinnie are the only ones for me, my sweet Honeybee!"
I smile warmly, and slide my fingers up the side of her belly to her breasts. "There's a whole bunch of shit we should get caught up on... But I missed you so much, Hon... It can wait."
I move in and start building her up for more fun. I bury my face in her neck, kissing a line up to her cheek. "I love you," I whisper sweetly, as my fingers take up a comfortable rhythm, "and I don't wanna leave you ever again."
Tonight is going to be fun...
It isn't long before she hits her peak, her head thrashes from side to side and her taut tummy muscles contract as she whimpers and moans into your mouth. After she comes down, she giggles and kisses you back, nips of adoration.
She whispers a single word, "Shower."
Do you head on, or insist on waiting for her?
Unless she's not grabbing a crutch, and she wants some secrecy, I'm happy to help her navigate the apartment.
What do you do?
VB hops around to wash every inch of you, taking delight in your body, loving every part of you. She asks little questions: how is Butter Nut? did you see anybody new? Is Dior enjoying being a DJ? Did you run into anyone around Trench? Little stuff, just keeping you talking while she plays with your body.
Eventually, the shower has to end. When you both exit the bathroom, covered in towels, you see Rinso there. He's in drab blue scrubs, he's been waiting for you. His eyes look a little tired and worn, but his smile is genuine. "Kiddo!" He exclaims while rushing forward to scoop you up. He takes care not to mash baby, just wants to hold you.
What do you do?
I waddle out of the bathroom and spot Rinso sitting there on the bed. My face lights up and I giggle as I run up to meet him. I practically jump into his arms, and plant a kiss on him. "Hey baby," I whisper as I hug him back, "miss me?"
How is the private time for you, Kiddo? Does it bother you how much in sync VB and Rinso have become? They are really in tune with each other now. They are in no way excluding you, but all of the petty stuff VB did to punish Rinso is over and done with, and they are really close again. Maybe more than ever.
One thing that did register is how Cherry will likely come waltzing up here any day now and throw a monkey wrench into it all... I'm trying not to think about it while we get re-acquainted though. That can wait until tomorrow morning."
The three of you are lying in bed, eating some grapes and peeled fruit slices that VB saved from Chefs. Your father and Zero come in.
Ollie says with a smile, "Hey, darlin, yer lookin happy. S'pose you gut a hug left in ya fer dad?"
"Oh!" I say, jumping out of his arms and fumbling for my pack, "I got you something! C'mon in!" I tug at the drawstring on my big backpack and shuffle some dirty clothes around to find the violin I stuffed in there. I peek impishly over my shoulder, and slowly spin around with the case in my hands. "Surprise!"
I bite my lip and hand it to him.
After being admonished, your father reaches with delicate hands to take it, looking at the violin with reverence. He looks up to you when it is in his hands, says in his raspy voice, "Looks... better'n a cigar box." He chuckles once, then pulls it up to his chin, takes the bow and begins to play.
He plays something for you, Kiddo. Something he played when you two were alone, on nights when the Candy Bars were out riding and the storms would come and he wanted you to be happy, and to feel safe and loved. What is it?
I'm convinced Dad can play any instrument you put in front of him... He once sat down at a harp, having never seen one before, and played a tune he wrote. Music is just in his blood I guess. It's in mine too, but not like it is with him and Hump. I stand there quietly watching and listening, loving every note... There's something about Dad's music that just brings me back to when I was a little girl. I don't know if I'll ever feel grown up around him when he plays for me — but I can't wait for him to play for Leah... She's going to love it.
When he finishes, I'm all smiles. This one sounds so much better than that tinny cigar-box he made before. "Beautiful, Dad..."
A moment later, as you're talking and catching up, the door from the hall opens. It's Humphrey and Topps. They come in to give you and your Ma hugs and hellos, and you get to catch up with them, too.
VB excuses herself to go down and get some food for everyone. Ollie and Zero sneak into the shower together, closing the door with you Ma... giggling. She actually giggled right before she closed the door. Weird, right?
Well... Ok, that's not true — I know when Ma' gets giggly, but I've usually got my headphones in long before that happens... Seems they've been getting busy too. Good for them.
A thought occurs to me, though — the lounge is empty right now... While I have a minute, I grab Rinnie by the hand and turn to Hump and Topps, "Hump, could you go get Junker? He's down in the bay with Brillo and Caesar. I didn't know how he'd take the lift, so I didn't wanna bring him up here..." That dog can pull and I don't wanna fall or anything with Leah... If they agree, I'm gunna pull Rinnie aside.
"We've gotta talk about Cherry..." I know I said I'd wait — but he deserves to hear this from me now.
Rinso follows you into the lounge, excited at some alone time. He nuzzles against your neck until you give him that last sentence. That gets his attention. He steps back, looking down at you. "Uhhh... I told you everything, babe. I'm all yours, I swear."
What do you do?
I take a deep breath, "Cherry lied to you, and had Ivory make Rinna for her using your ... Uh... Stuff." I bite my lip and shift uncomfortably. I'm really afraid to say this next part... I'm afraid of what is going to happen. "You're technically her father, and Cherry wants you to be Rinna's Dad." I pause, and shake my head. "When you see this kid, Rinnie... She really does look just like you... I didn't have the heart to tell that little girl she wasn't allowed to meet you. You're such a sweet man, and I know you're going to be a great dad... I just... I'm afraid of what Cherry and this little girl mean for our family..."
But he knows you wouldn't pull his leg about this. He walks away, just a few steps away, sits down in a chair, sort of falls into it, like he's so overwhelmed that standing is a chore. His shoulders lump and he looks back up at you. The shock is so plain on his face.
The anger hits him, like out of nowhere. Then it passes.
"She... she looks just like me?" He asks with this awe and hope in his voice. Then, a random chuckle, "Poor girl. I'd be an ugly woman."
He closes his eyes, shakes his head, it's all too much. He can't process this all right now. He manages, "I'm all yours baby. Cherry will never frakkin touch me again. I swear."
See, It's not that I don't believe him... Right now, I do! But it's not right now I'm worried about... I'm worried about when he sees that little girl, and he knows the truth, and that instinct kicks in. The instinct I've run headlong into with Leah... Or worse — what if it doesn't kick in? What if he takes one look at that little girl, and nothing clicks? Even I saw Rinso in that little girl, and melted... What does that mean for Leah?
(Rolled: 2d6+3. Rolls: 2, 1. Total: 6)
He looks at you for a long moment, then adds, "Maybe Rinna can fill a hole in Cherry that nobody else could. I mean... she's reaching out, right?" Rinso swallows, like he's still reeling a bit.
With solid eyes, he reassures you, "I will not abandon you, or our baby. I swear."
OOC: Is Rinso telling the truth?
I kiss him again, "we'll make this work," I whisper softly, "we will, as a family. I promise." I turn over to listen and see just where in this "shower" Ma' and Dad are, just to see how much time we have... I dunno if Rinso is up to it, considering the conversation we just had, but if I can bring his attention back to the moment, then I want to show my man how much I missed him.
... Until Leah kicks him in the gut while I try to mount him. It may have been the nervous sexual tension, or maybe just the fact that I'm so relieved he's here for good, that I burst out laughing, and it takes me a minute to recover...
Ok, maybe two minutes. If he's still game after that, then I suppose I am too.
Rinso is super gentle and lets you guide the way. He's enjoying what he can get, and maybe a tiny bit nervous about hurting you or the baby. But after you're able to find a good position, he just lays back on the table and plays with your breasts. Because, you know, they're kinda huge now.
It's interesting that he's so gentle now. I mean, he's always been a little gentle, but now he's treating me like I'm made of glass or something — the window kind, not the drug — so I have to remind him he can relax a little. The days of overbearing sensitivity are starting to fade a little, and so long as he doesn't rub me raw, I'm down for a lot of shit...
And by "down for a lot of shit" I mean things got a little freaky. Let's just say I was wondering what that crud in my bras was, and Rinso's manly grip kind of cleared that up for me... I made him clean up his mess. I had fun. It occurs to me Rinso's never had the ... ahem, pleasure of drinking a mother's milk. I guess everyone's got a first. Kissing him after the fact was a little weird, but I was a little too preoccupied to realize why it would be weird until it was too late.
After a little exploration, when I started getting tender again, I gently moved his hands down to my hips and rode him home. Turns out I missed him a little more than I thought. I'm keeping an eye on the shower and door in case we have to cut this short... Ma' and Dad can waste as much water as they want, and I don't mind if Vee comes back, but it'd be nice not to be caught in the act.
Once you assure him that you aren't going to break and Leah won't mind, he does grip your hips firmly, and grunt and push up into you until finally he releases all the pent up tension of waiting for you, panting your name and professing his love.
Go ahead and fire that Sex Move, why don't ya?

Right as Rinso is in the middle of his climax, the door opens, and your parents come in. You're "riding", so you get to flash them both, yay. Your dad averts his eyes, mostly for your benefit, but your Ma walks right in. She's buck naked, and the woman looks good for her age and state of pregnancy. She's got a big grin on her face.
Rinso, he isn't aware for a moment, but then, he sort of can't stop, you know, finishing. He doesn't want to throw you off him, so he sort of sits there in your juices. And his. He hands you your shirt.
Your Ma asks, "You two done?" She's chuckling.
"Yeah," I mutter, "uh... Sorry..." How the hell did we end up on the table? We could've frakking managed the couch. It's probably just as well... Leah's apparently feeling rather excited herself. Once we've got some clothes on, I give Rinso a kiss on the cheek, feeling embarrassed, and try to giggle it off. I'm not really used to changing gears like that during sex... I really hope Leah doesn't interrupt us too often. Then again, I suppose being in a threesome means we can sorta share the responsibility, so long as Leah isn't hungry...
I walk over to Dad, heading over to find my pants, and give him a kiss on the cheek, "sorry Daddy..." Boy... It's good to be home again? I shake my head, and can't believe how I completely lost track of where I was... That was frakking stupid.
Ollie, well, he's not mad, just maybe a tiny bit shell-shocked. He chuckles once, standing there in his towel, with that huge Y-scar on his chest from the surgery.
