After coming home after a long day of adventuring/hunting, Boone pours himself a glass of OJ and bonelessly collapses onto the couch. He kicks his feet up to rest on a couch arm, settling himself into full relaxation mode.

*Alex comes out of the bedroom and smiles when she comes into the living room and sees Boone lying down on the couch. She walks up to him slowly before she leans down to kiss his lips. Softly, in case he's sleeping. She whispers.*

Hey there.

[He smiles, looking up at her.]
Hey Al.
What's up?
Alex: prettylisten_to_locke on January 24th, 2010 05:02 am (UTC)
*She sits on the coffee table next to him.*

I'm baking!

How was work?
ifoundsomepensifoundsomepens on January 24th, 2010 05:06 am (UTC)
Pretty good, I caught a nice sized boar. You?
Alex: small smilelisten_to_locke on January 24th, 2010 05:17 am (UTC)
Nothing, much. Jack is settling back in so things are slowing down for us.

You want a cupcake with that juice?
ifoundsomepens: Jungle Lookifoundsomepens on January 24th, 2010 05:39 am (UTC)
Are you guys still gonna keep Ethan?

Thanks but, I'll save it for dessert.
Alex: thoughtfullisten_to_locke on January 24th, 2010 05:53 am (UTC)
Well, for the time being, yes. They're really different doctors, anyway. So for now, they're all staying.

*She shrugs.*

I guess one can never have too many doctors, right? You never know. Especially here.
ifoundsomepens: :\ifoundsomepens on January 24th, 2010 06:01 am (UTC)
Yeah, you're right.
[He shifts a little uncomfortably on the couch. Then rests his head down on the arm and closes his eyes.]
Alex: prettylisten_to_locke on January 24th, 2010 06:05 am (UTC)
*Alex gets up and walks to the kitchen, to pull the last batch of cupcakes out of the oven, she talks to him as she walks.*

You want anything special for dinner?
ifoundsomepens: figure it outifoundsomepens on January 27th, 2010 02:22 am (UTC)
Can't really think of anything special.
[He taps his fingers on his stomach, thinking.]
How about something southern?
Alex: curiouslisten_to_locke on January 27th, 2010 02:41 am (UTC)
Something fried?
Maybe... chicken fried steak?
ifoundsomepens: smile with smirkifoundsomepens on January 27th, 2010 02:43 am (UTC)
Yes please,
Mmm fried beef.
I can't hardly wait to eat it.

*She turns towards the kitchen and begins to set things up. She works in silence for a while, thinking about what she knows she has to tell Boone, but not really wanting to disturb him right now. She knows he won't be pleased, but she won't lie to him.
She sighs.*

Can I bribe you out of the couch with a drink to get your help?

[There is no reply, during the lull in conversation Boone had drifted off to sleep. The humid and long day had left him tired and sore.]
Alex: poutlisten_to_locke on January 27th, 2010 03:06 am (UTC)
*Alex takes a peek through the doorway and sighs with a small smile. She goes back to cooking, deciding to wake him up when she's done.*
Alex: teaselisten_to_locke on January 27th, 2010 03:21 am (UTC)
*Alex walks over to where Boone is sleeping. She sits on the edge of the couch and leans down over to him. She runs a hand up his chest, she leans over and kisses his neck softly. She puts her hand up on his shoulder and kisses him again, doing it a few more times to wake him up slowly.*

Wake up, sleepy head.
ifoundsomepens: Drained/Sleepyifoundsomepens on January 27th, 2010 05:12 am (UTC)
[It takes him a while, but he eventually rises. When he speaks her rubs his eyes and stifles a stiff yawn.]
Hey Al, did you finish dinner?
Sorry for falling asleep like that, had a long day.
Alex: shy smilelisten_to_locke on January 27th, 2010 05:21 am (UTC)
*She stands back as he awakens but then leans back in, pressing a kiss to his lips.*

I did.

*She kisses his neck again.*

It's okay, I understand.

*She moves away.*

I have other ideas about stuff right now, but... the food would get cold. So maybe we should go eat it?
ifoundsomepens: Laugh cuterifoundsomepens on January 28th, 2010 02:41 am (UTC)
[Boone chuckles.]
Well, I wouldn't wanna keep you waiting.
Alex: prettylisten_to_locke on January 28th, 2010 04:09 am (UTC)
Oh... I know you wouldn't.

*She winks at him as she takes out a chair on the dining table.*

I've only made this a couple of times before, I hope it's good.
ifoundsomepens: Kind eyesifoundsomepens on January 28th, 2010 04:13 am (UTC)
I'm sure it is. It always is.
[He sits.]
It definitely looks like it is.
Alex: small smilelisten_to_locke on January 28th, 2010 04:18 am (UTC)
Oh Boone. You talking about my food makes me feel like my ego's gonna fly off the roof!

*Alex waits with a smile for Boone to take a bite.*

My father was never too into fried food, so I tried my hand at it myself.
ifoundsomepens: Thinking/Dorkyifoundsomepens on January 28th, 2010 04:33 am (UTC)
Go figure. What a stick in the mud.
You should have a big ego, the food you make is amazing.
[He begins cutting the Chicken Fried Steak appart.]
Alex: cute alexlisten_to_locke on January 28th, 2010 04:58 am (UTC)
*She shrugs*
Well, he taught me well... And I truly enjoy doing it. It's a sweet thing to do for people you love, you know?
ifoundsomepens: Curious/confusedifoundsomepens on January 28th, 2010 05:06 am (UTC)
Yeah, I guess.
Let's just stay off the topic of Ben. I don't wanna ruin my appetite or my mood.
Alex: aawlisten_to_locke on January 28th, 2010 05:10 am (UTC)
*Alex looks away uncomfortably. She bites her lips and takes a deep breath.
She moves her eyes only to look at Boone, unsure what to do next.

She looks down to her plate and stays silent.*
ifoundsomepens: Squintifoundsomepens on January 28th, 2010 05:15 am (UTC)
[They eat in silence for a minute, but Boone eventually picks up on Alex's discomfort. As much as he dislikes to admit it to himself, he is slightly suspicious. He gives her a cautious look.]
Alex: chagrinedlisten_to_locke on January 28th, 2010 05:36 am (UTC)
*She sighs and looks up at him.*

There's no... I can't think of a way to sugar coat this so I'll just say it: I talked to my dad and I tried to kind of make a truce with him so that we could... well, co exist.
And I know you hate him and you have good reason to hate him. But I just, well... I can't not talk to him. Even when I hate him, he's my father, Boone. I... don't hate me too, please.
ifoundsomepens: IMMA SAY MEAN THINGSifoundsomepens on January 28th, 2010 05:38 am (UTC)
So, you basically forgave him for what he did to me?! Is that right?
Alex: aprehensivelisten_to_locke on January 28th, 2010 05:41 am (UTC)
No, I didn't.
He is pretty clear that I didn't. I won't unless he makes great amends and I don't mean to me, but to you.

But ... I can't... I can't cut him away completely if I want that to happen. I want things to some day be better between us, and that will never happen if I never speak to him again. And by us, I mean you and me as a couple and him as my father.

That's not going to happen Alex. Ever.
You're father is always going to hate me, and I'm always going to hate your father. I hate to break it to you but things can't be picture perfect.
[He drops the fork down on the plate with a loud clatter, there went his appetite. The chair screeches as he gets up, leaving the plate where it was.]
I've tried to be as understanding and polite as I could, but he crossed the line... and I cant forgive what her did. I won't forget either.
Alex: chagrinlisten_to_locke on January 28th, 2010 05:53 am (UTC)
But I can't get it through my head that that will be the case forever!

You and I... I am under the impression that for you and me... this is it. I love you, and I want to be with you. Not for a little bit, not while we're here... but seriously, for... well, forever.

And he's not going anywhere! It's not even like we can get away from here. He's there across the playground, Boone. And I can't bear to think that I'm not doing anything to try and change all that hate he has in him. I can't bear to think that he hates this. I can't. I have to try, do you understand? Because what we have is way too good for me to not think that it's worth fighting for.
