Thank God she doesn't drive like her sister! We got to a motel safe, sound and crisp-free. Despite the decent driving, every bone in my body was hurting from being stuck in that position. There hadn't been much of a choice. From any other angle, all I could see was Dawn's body. Either her long, tanned legs. Or her cute, tight tummy. Or her pert breasts that bounced with every little bump in the road. 'f course, I could 've kept my eyes closed. Except, I couldn't.
In any other circumstances, I'd take two rooms, or, if finances required, I'd sleep in car. I don’t hesitate for a second to ask for only one room. I go back to the car musing over the fact that this is the first time in a hundred years I have an official identity. The scoobies have grudgingly helped me get everything so that I could get official custody of Dawn. The papers had been good enough for social services. They were good enough for the motel clerk.
Dawn was getting her stuff out of the trunk. Damn! I had nothing to sleep in. Sleeping naked has never been a problem for me, but considering my roommate, that would be quite unsuitable.
I give her the key to our room, and I pick up all the bags. I start following her, but as soon as I realize that my eyes are glued to her ass, I drop my gaze to the ground. Bloody hell! Since the damn contract is on her, I don't even have the option of leaving her with the scoobies. According to the clerk, the room had twin beds at least.
Dawn's going into the shower. I bolt out the door. Need to make a quick sweep around the motel. I'm sort of sure that the assassins hadn't caught up with us. Need to be away from Dawn for a while. This damn situation is pushing us closer. Too close for her own good. I'm keeping it under control for now, but if this shit keeps up like this, I know I'll fall into my old ways, chip be damn!
When I get back, I'm treated to another "towel only" vision of her body. I have to look down. She's gone and grown up on me. I get out the book
I tuck her in bed, then bend over to kiss her forehead.
"We'll get over this, Bit," I tell her.
She squeezes my hand. I squeeze it back. I want to kiss her again. Forehead, cheeks, eyes, mouth. No. Not mouth. Not neck either.
I undress, trying hard to think of nothng but the danger surrounding us. I get in my bed, making sure that the sheet covers as much of me as possible. I know I shouldn't be naked in the same room with her, but we might not get another chance to sleep indoors for a while, so I make the best of it. Sure as hell I can't sleep naked in the same car with her.
She falls asleep sooner than I had hoped. I drift to sleep, such a shallow sleep that as soon as Dawn's breathing changes I'm wide awake. I'm kneeling next to her bed before she lets out the scream.
"It's just a dream, luv. Wake up now," I whisper, caressing her hair.
