[Subtle Romance from @resistanceflybcy
"I can’t wait to see every inch of you" ------------
“Mm, well you’d better hurry back then, hadn’t you?”
For herself, she thought this might be some sort of record. They’d been talking for something like a whole five minutes before ‘hi, baby’, ‘I miss you’ and ‘this mission kriffing sucks’ had turned toward something a little more ... well. A little more like them. Thera sighed, the happy kind that mixed in a smile and a purr, and settled back on her pillows.
The ‘hurry back’ actually applied to both of them - and probably to the base, but could be wherever they ended up in the same place at the same time. Her current mission was pretty ordinary compared to Poe’s, and in all honesty she would rather have gone with him purely so she could watch his six.
“Same back,” She shifted a little, though he wouldn’t be able to tell on just the audio link, “because I’m here all alone in my cold, empty sheets.” That woe-was-her tone aimed to get a laugh, given away by a chuckle of her own - though if it put a mental picture in his head as well, she wasn’t going to complain.
“And every inch of me is waiting for you.”
