I grabbed my bags from the car and followed Alex to the house. "Nice place, I like it. How very American of you" I said teasingly as I followed her towards the door. I waited for her to unlock the door and I followed her in. I looked at the lock on the door, not even a deadbolt, maybe this is Pleasentville and there is no crime. "Alex? Do you mind if I beef up security a little bit?" I asked as I walked through the hallway. "That lock on the door wouldn't hold up against anything if it wanted to come in." I said. What can I do?! Military is part of my life, keeping things that matter secure are definitly a priority. And Alex is someone I care for, someone I could quite possibly care a lot for.
I put my bags into the room she had pointed out, I just tossed them onto the bed and followed her into the kitchen. "Really Alex, anything is ok, I haven't had a home cooked meal in god know's how long, I'd kill for anything." I said with a smile as I took a seat. We chatted for a few minutes. "Since obviously you don't need any help, is it ok if I grab a shower real quick?" I asked. She nodded and I walked towards the bedroom and grabbed my clothes and towel and then headed for the shower.
After my shower and getting dressed I walked back into the kitchen and just stood against the doorframe watching her. She was beautiful, her long blone hair, the way she moved... Snap out of if Finn! I cleared my throat. "It smells delicious!" I said as I took a seat at the bar. "You sure you don't need any help?" I asked.
