In Topic: With Spring Comes... (Adrian)

”He is.  He’s just so busy that it’s hard to really spend any time with him.”  When Rose was a child Mikael would make sure that the kids didn’t get to bored at those kind of events or at least try to.  Rose thought that Adrian had made a wonderful buffer and the people whose opinions mattered more to her than her parents had liked him or that was her impression, anyway.


She gave a small smile.  ”Hopefully.  At least if this one didn’t scare you away.”  There was a ring of truth in that joke because Rose had feared taken him here would do just that; scare him off. Feeling a tingle as he whispered into her ear; she just stayed in his arms for those brief moments.


She didn’t know what to say to the compliment; in her mind, the way she was had always been more because of her brother than herself.   As for her parents, Rose might agree with the word insanity but she also knew there were worse parents out there.    Kind of always cross in the middle of hating the way they acted and feeling loyal to them because they were her parents.  


She joined him on the bed, found a romantic comedy that she had wanted to see and layed in his arms.  A few other things might have happened that night other than snuggling but it didn’t go much beyond kissing and necking.  Rose figured she would have to eventually let him know she was still a virgin but wasn’t even sure he would be that surprised by it and it was a topic for another time.  Second movie in, she would fall asleep in his arms and not awake till morning.

“I’ll try to remember that.” Her lips hinting at a smile. She really wasn’t used to people being as open as Adrian tended to be; her world wasn’t like that because most people were worried that anything could be used against them.


”He always says that if he won’t eat it he wouldn’t serve it to his guests.” And while it had been her mother’s party, considering everything Mikael did for the parties he had the right to call them his guests, as far as Rose was concerned.   ”I’ll warn you through if I try to drag you to a party where I know the food is going to just be strange.”


His arms felt good around her, comforting and just nice.  She really still didn’t know what to say about her parents so the words that came just came.


Nodding to his words; that was probably true.  She hadn’t met all of his family but she did know his sisters and they just seemed far removed from her family.  She sat down next to him and listened to his words.  ”Thank you but part of the credit would have to go to my brother.  He had more to do with raising me then they did.  They weren’t around a lot when I was growing up.”  Which might have been to her benefit, in all honesty. 


Stay here, in this room with him all night?  It sounded wonderful, actually but she did have a slight if passing thought of what if he wanted to go further than they already had.   She wasn’t really sure how far she was ready to go with him just yet but she had a good feeling that maybe he wasn’t really expecting anything.  ”I’d like that.” If more came than just a movie and maybe some popcorn, she would take that one step at a time.

Rose knew how to hide things, well.  She had been well trained in such areas but it was much hardier around Adrian, for reasons which she still didn’t understand, she found it easier to let down her guard more with him, than almost anyone.  Still, it didn’t mean that she felt like she could express how she felt about tonight right then, she needed time to figure out how she felt.


The cut of his outfit wasn’t lost on her; he looked amazing in it or more like it showed his body perfectly.  She was in a blue shirt which seemed to bring out her eyes and some comfortable pants; despite that she looked good in such things, there was this odd concern that her mother would pay them a visit tonight and complain about what she was wearing though it was probable just the night wearing on her.


She smiled as his comment.  ”Habit, I guess.” Enough etiquette classes will do that to you.  ”Yup, that’s it.  Well, the food is always good.” Which was true and about what she could say about those kind of events.  She accepted the hug without hesitation and could feel the slight tingle from his lips on her ears.   ” I don’t know.  I should have suspected the night might turn out the way iit did with my parents but I guess I was hoping for something different. “ She took his hand.  ”I feel like I should have given you some warning but I don’t really know how to explain my parents to people that haven’t met them.”  Though she had never told anyone that before; mostly because she had never been in this position before.

Rose had never seen Jackson quite so rude but then again she usually ended up at events like this with him.  Her brother had never liked him and Rose hadn’t cared too much for the man but this was more blatant than even she thought he would be.  


If it wasn’t for Thomas and Jane, Rose wished she could have just left but she knew that would only one more thing for her mother to be critical of.  So, they made their rounds and then left to head back to their rooms.  As for her mother and father’s reaction to her; well, she wasn’t sure she knew how to explain it to Adrian; it was just the way things were.   Once her brother had passed away, after she was out of the hospital and such, things had become worse but it wasn’t even worse in a surprising way. 


They headed back to their rooms, which were adjoining but not the same room.  ”I really want to get changed, so, why don’t I come to your room when I’m done.” Which was true, she also needed a moment to compose herself.  It took her a few minutes to get changed into more normal clothes.  Every party guest got a basket full of fruit and muffins and there was a mini bar in the room which her parents had paid enough for that to be completely but anything else would have to be ordered.  About ten minutes went by before, once last check to make sure she was together and then knocked on Adrian’s door.  

In Topic: What I did on my summer vacation

Val nodded as there wasn’t more to talk about with the possibility of her staying her an extra week.  The thought was a great one but it was a little scary to make that decision, maybe she should talk to Jeff about it as well.  
They arrived at the burger place shortly after leaving the club.  “It’s been a lot of fun.  I’m a little sorry though that we’ve not spent more time together, as a family , the last part of this trip.“ Valerie also ordered a milkshake, strawberry but true to form, ordered it virgin.  She then ordered a cheeseburger and fries.  Valerie normally ate healthier than that but she was on vacation. 
”We haven’t talked about it.  He said he would be at the bonfire later with his friends, though.” She would probably see him there , not planned, it couldn’t have been meeting up at the bonfire had been Melissa’s idea but also it was a common thing to go to.
