Jess blinked, more than a little shocked to hear him say this. Well, that was new, she thought. Nobody had ever described her as fun before.
She decided to ask, wanting to know why he thought this when no one else did. Felix almost blushed, but was able to restrain himself and project some of his ice coolness out as he ponders Jessica’s question. He rubbed one of his palms down his pant leg and looked down at her.
“Well, I’ve never had any kind of fun like this my entire life. I usually just played with humans to get my way, but that gets boring really fast and making them do stuff loses its charm quickly.”
Felix got a far-off look in his eyes.
“Jessica, you are so different and special and not because you refuse to drink human blood, which is admirable. Despite your vampirism, you have retained who you were your whole life.”
He slipped into the pool and held her close, his eyes next to hers as his forehead touches hers.
“I’ve never known who I really am, but with you…being…kind….caring…loving…it comes naturally to me, as naturally as being an arse around everyone else. With you, I’m not Sith. With you, I’m just a normal guy in love with a normal girl, even though we are anything but normal. With you, I feel alive. With you…Being with you is like heaven on earth.”
Jess almost gaped, but managed not to. She had no idea that he felt this way or saw her in a different light than everyone else. It felt…nice to not be seen only as what she was, as a vampire, and not who she was. It made her feel that she could tell him anything and he would not judge her. When he basically said he was in love with her, her eyes widened. With him so close to her, her breath caught. She was not even sure how to respond, feeling so many emotions at once.
She mumbled, then blushed at how stupid a response that was.
“I-I mean, uhm…”
Usually she knew exactly what to say, but not this time.
Felix smiled slightly, his upper lips lifted in one corner.
“Shut up, Jessica. I’m going to kiss you now.”
He cupped her cheek in his hand and brushed his lips against hers, loving the feel of her lips against his.
“I could get used to this.”
He kissed her again, but this time more passionately and with fervor. Jess’s eyes widened slightly but quickly relaxed again, smiling faintly. She decided she liked this and him more importantly. She really liked him. I could get used to this, too, she thought. When he kissed her again, she smiled against his lips and kissed him back, relaxing against him more. Felix felt her return the kiss and relax in his arms. He pulled away from her with a snarky grin on his face that slowly morphed into something softer.
“We should get going. I thought I heard voices a moment ago.”
He broke the spell, but kept his fingers entwined with hers. Jess nodded slightly and bit her lip, looking around before she climbed out of the water, still a little surprised at what just happened. She dried off with a towel and looked at him.
She asked. Felix followed her lead and glanced at his watch, which was waterproof. He frowned slightly and tilted his head to the side.
“Normal people would eat dinner at this time but since we aren’t….how about staking out the library for anything I haven’t read?”
He listens to what he had just said and winced.
“Sorry. Old habits die hard.”
He winced again, but kept his mouth shut. She raised an eyebrow and smirks a little.
“Sure, let’s go to the library to scope out what you haven’t read. Which might be alot, due to the length of it.”
She mumbled, recalling what she had just said.
“Let’s just go…”
She sighed softly and pulled on the shorts she had brought with her before she turned and started walking with him to the library. Noel pondered over her blunder and stopped her with a hand to her arm.
“I don’t get it.”
His face was all serious as he tried to think up the insult her statement would cause and found none. Jess looked at him before she smirked a little, and then laughed slightly. She was not sure whether it was a good thing that he did not get it or not.
“You don’t have to. Let’s just go.”
