Retaliation really should have been something Claire was expecting. Was Alice really just going to sit there as the redhead dumped the dirty blonde into the ocean water? Of course not. That’s not Alice. Alice is never dormant. The woman is a torrent of beautiful emotions and a hard head. Two of things that made her beautiful. Out of probably a thousand reasons, maybe more. If Claire sat here and thought about them all, she’d be lost in thought for days, most likely. Then the vacation would be over with.
Not that she could have really seen the agile movements the Head of Security just delivered. Maybe that should have been cheating. Who knows, Claire was having way too much fun to even think about caring. The redhead’s hands quickly moved behind her and her face almost fell beneath the water, but she caught herself, just in time. Chin deep. There was such a careless laugh that escaped her mouth, that it even surprised herself. She was genuinely happy. Nothing could persuade her otherwise.
She pushed herself up until she was standing. The glare aimed towards Alice was all playful, along with such a mirthful smirk that curled up her lips. “You know, Abernathy.” She whispered, almost tauntingly. “That wasn’t nice. It’s on.” Then she charged forward, reaching out to grab the other woman’s wrist and tugging rather hard, forward.
Alice’s lips curled into a smirk yet again, basically mirroring Claire’s on her own accord. Wouldn’t be anything else, just the Head of Security going along with her true feelings. Though that whisper from the redhead did make a slight shiver go up her spine, a pleased one. Her eyes widened slightly when the woman charged, a short but loud and joyous laugh slipping out from her. The only reason Alice had lost her footing at the start as she was tugged forward, was because she had been so distracted. Damn Claire and her rather attractive looks, especially like this.
Honestly, the thoughts that goes on in her head should be illegal at times and sometimes it would make her seriously question her sexuality. Then again, sexuality had nothing to do with this. After realizing her feelings for Claire, Alice came to the conclusion that she agreed when people say love is genderless. Anyone could just fall so unexpectedly, even for the unexpected person at an unexpected time. Considering most of those so-called ‘illegal’ thoughts were centered around Claire.
Simply put, the list of the little things she loved about the redhead could go on for weeks.
It wasn’t long before the blonde caught her footing again and her arms ended up flying around Claire’s waist, grabbing onto her to hold on and stumbled forward with her. With both feet back on the ground, she bent forward just slightly and hooked an arm around the back of Claire’s legs and picked her up with ease, smirking once more. Daringly this time. “Hmm.. the water over there looks good, what do you think?” She murmured with a light but playful tone as she walked further into the water till it reached up just above her thighs.
I laughed a bit more than I probably should have
Meanwhile in Russia
BEEP BEEP MOTHERFUCKER
Fly me up on a silver wing
Pass the black where the Sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova's glow
And drop me down to the dream below
‘You say there’s no hope left, I say why bothering to keep fighting if that was true?’
—“Alice. You realize this is a huge risk you’re taking. What if he finds out?”
