PostSubject: A Quiet Afternoon (Jari)   Sun Aug 10, 2014 7:13 am

The afternoon at work had been slow to say the least, it was probably because he knew that he would be heading home with Mari and he was a little excited. Though, if anyone (except perhaps Marilyn) asked him, Jake wouldn't have admitted that outwardly. So when the clock struck five, Jake tidied up his paperwork and pulled his jacket on.

After meeting with Marilyn in the entrance hall, they had floo'ed back to her apartment. It had come as something of a mutual agreement that they'd prepare dinner together. It had taken some time, and a lot of guesswork on both of their part, but eventually they had managed to rustle up a spaghetti Bolognese.

They had eaten with a soft topic of conversation, what they'd been working on that day. Jake had taken their plates when they'd done and carefully washed them up along with the pots and pans they'd used. Once they'd finished tidying up, Jake had moved to the lounge, noting Jagger still laid claim to his seat and deciding to lie out on the sofa instead.

Marilyn had joined him not long after, and Jake had moved over as much as possible to give her space to join him. Jake pressed his lips gently against Marilyn's a small smile already in place at how comfortable this was between them. Jake wasn't going to lie that he'd been worried about that, but now, it just seemed so silly that he had thought of that.

"So, what would you like to do?" Jake whispered softly, resting his head back on the pillow and waiting for suggestions. Whatever the witch wanted to do, Jake would be happy to oblige her, even if that meant another movie of the witch's choice.

It hadn't been a particularily exciting day for Marilyn, she had spent all day cooped up in her extra room that had pretty much turned into a laboratory where she stood bent over dozens of different cuffs of different metal alloys to test magical conductivity, not to mention that she had to battle the allergy factor to certain metals and muggle chemistry came into the mix and she'd been forced to vaguely consult muggle Internet Forums.

So far she'd tested about ten different combinations of metal and spellwork and noted the results: All Gold mixtures melted upon Impact with a curse, silver mixtures worked best with platinum but pure platinum was no good because it didn't conduct the charms properly.

But after calling it a day she'd met Jake in the entrance hall after a shower because otherwise the witch had a tendency of smelling like cinnamon and burnt hair after coming from the lab.
While the work in the lab was great and Marilyn really seemed to Bloom when working on her Projects for the Ministry, who had been interested in her cuffs enough to allow her to give the work the Attention it needed, the witch was greatly relieved when she got to just spend time with Jake.

Life was so comfortable and they'd fallen into rhythm so quickly that it had seemed they'd never done anything else. They cooked together after figuring out that they both needed to hone that skill. And afterwards they cuddled on the sofa after Marilyn had checked up on the cuffs in the lab that had been soaking in an anti-allergen potion.

So she returned with slightly fume-fluffed hair, to her spot laying on the couch, facing Jake and pressing a gentle kiss back to his lips, smiling and humming contently.
"So, what would you like to do?"

"Hmm..." The witch pondered, absently playing with one of his hands gently as she thought it over, "Well...how about we get to know each other more? I ask you a question, you answer and then ask me a question and so on and so forth." Mari murmured, kissing his knuckles before placing his hand on her waist.

As Mari took up his hand, gently pressing her lips to his knuckles, Jake smiled at the tenderness of the witch that was already prominent. Though Jake might not say these things openly, he'd always been one for such small gestures and it was almost like Marilyn already knew.

"Well...how about we get to know each other more? I ask you a question, you answer and then ask me a question and so on and so forth."

Jake listened to the suggestion and let out a small chuckle at the idea. "Okay... what do I want to know about you..." Jake mused, his hand being placed on the witch's hip. He caught her hand before she could move away, linking their fingers together. "What's your favourite kind of music, or singer? Because we've done dancing to so many different things..." Jake asked, a small frown touching his features as he thought about it for a moment. Especially seeing as the radio seemed to be tuned in to a different station each time he came over.

The witch let her now interlocked fingers brush against his gently as she listened to his question thoughtfully, considering her answer,

"Well, I do have a favorite song..." The witch bit her lip as she worked up the nerve to get it out, "It's not overly known...'Heartbeats' by Jose Gonzalez, I suppose he'd be one of my favorite singers. I like quiet music, if that makes sense. Fleetwood Mac, Death Cab for Cutie, City and Colour...oh, yes, 'Transatlanticism' by Death Cab for Cutie is another favorite song."

Mari shifted slightly, aware that her taste in music tended to differ greatly from the tough persona she upheld; vulnerability was something the witch was still extremely uncomfortable with, because she still had the feeling she couldn't be vulnerable without getting hurt. And the fact that she was letting Jake find out more about her was a large step in trust for her and she knew it would be a good choice, that didn't make it easier however.

"Hmm..." the witch gave him another kiss before asking her question, "If you could go anywhere in the world with no worries, where would you go and why?"

With the answer from the witch, Jake frowned slightly. To be quite honest, he hadn't heard of any of that music, he'd always been more mainstream in his own tastes. Some music that his mom liked always featured in his iPod, but otherwise he went with the recent songs. With this information though, Jake made a mental note to download the music and listen to it. Just because he didn't personally know the music, doesn't mean he couldn't try it.

"I'll have to listen to it some time." Jake replied softly, smiling softly at the information. He was already enjoying this game, because his opinion was being moulded in to something different now. He didn't have to rely on assumptions.

"If you could go anywhere in the world with no worries, where would you go and why?"

"That... is a very good question." Jake replied, his face turning very thoughtful as he tried to work out somewhere he'd like to go. With his family, they'd never left the state, and his only travelling outside of the state had been to Canada, Wales, Salem, Hogwarts and now Marilyn's house and the surrounding area. "I'm not really sure... I mean, I'm not well travelled, so anywhere would be nice to visit. Russia has always appealed to me, not really sure why... Parts of Europe too. But if you mean permanently, it could be anywhere in the world so long as I could see my family... and you." Jake explained, the last two words coming out slowly as he tested them out, not because he was forcing them, but because he liked the way it sounded.

He could only hope Marilyn felt the same way about it.

"What three things can make you happy instantly?" Jake asked softly, stealing a kiss from the witch, before he added. "Except from me." He added teasingly.

The witch couldn't help the smile when he said he'd listen to it and resisted the instinct to tell him he didn't have to. She knew that he wouldn't appreciate her acting as if she wasn't worth paying attention to. It wasn't that she actively thought so little of herself, she just had the 'hide and survive behavioral pattern ingrained strongly on her mind. But with Jake it had been getting better and better.

Mari nodded at his answer, personally Russia was too anti-gay for her relaxation or safety, but Europe in was something she liked to travel around in. The witch found herself picturing Jake in a City like Rome or Paris, or even the european half of Turkey and smirked slightly at the thought of the somewhat pale-skinned man in such heat intense places.

At his addition of "And you" Marilyn grinned and kissed him back before giving him a deeper kiss of her own in appreciation, her hand moving from his to cup his cheek as she did so.

"What three things can make you happy instantly?"


Mari chuckled at his teasing and rolled her eyes, "Well, besides you..." she thought about it and her eyes took on a slight spark of sadness as the things that had once made her feel happy popped into mind like her mothers singing, the twins pranks... but that was too painful to think about to she shifted her Focus abruptly, forbidding herself melancholy thoughts as her smile returned,

"Astronomy. I love the stars and everything about outer space." She admitted, expression lighting up at the mere thought. It was surprising how many answers she had to bite back, because they were connected to the man before her.
"The ocean in Mexico. I...miss them. They were always so clear and blue. Beautiful." Mari caught herself growing a bit too open and reigned herself in out of habit, "And auror class. I like the efficience and practicality."

"Hmm...what is your patronus memory?" she asked, scooting closer on the couch to get comfortable once more.

The confirmation that his words weren't going to hurt the witch came with a seal of approval from Marilyn. Obviously he wanted his best friend around him where possible, but he reminded himself that she was more than that now and it made him smile in to the kiss that deepened momentarily as he held her close to him.

These reactions he could deal with, he decided as she moved away slightly to answer his question.

With the witch thinking for a moment, he could see a small flicker of hurt touch her features, but Jake didn't point it out, because he wasn't sure whether she would want to talk about it just yet. It wasn't long, however, before she started answering the question, and Jake smiled slightly. He never understood the notion of the stars being fascinating, but if the witch beside him liked them, it would simply be another thing he could try for her.

The ocean... Jake had never been overly fond of the ocean, he'd only really experience it... no, he pushed that away and nodded, showing he was listening. "Never been to Mexico." He muttered in reply, showing he had no clue as to what she was talking about really.

"And Auror class. I like the efficiency and practicality."

"Geek." Jake teased, the tone of his voice much more loving that the word itself. Stealing a kiss, Jake shook his head at the idea. "I can't believe it makes you smile. Is it Clement or Holmes that does it for you?" He teased, before shaking his head. "That's not my question, he added a moment later, waving it away.

"Hmm...what is your patronus memory?"

"You know it doesn't have to be one memory, right?" Jake asked, it was something he'd discovered by accident during teaching. "Mine isn't one memory. More... each memory encompasses Victoria in some manner. It's been focused on her being able to walk, recently. Some are stronger than others, but I think that it's basically Victoria that is my memory..."

Jake paused, before nodding once to show he felt that was adequate. Hopefully she wouldn't think badly of that, it was difficult finding a strong memory, but it seemed Victoria was enough for the spell to work.

Deciding to go on something light, a smirk already touching at his features, Jake asked the next question trying not to overthink what he wanted the answer to be. "Name the people you've slept with." He whispered, wondering if she could do that or not.

"I can't believe it makes you smile. Is it Clement or Holmes that does it for you?"
"Oh shut up" she laughed, "They are brilliant teachers and I like practicality." She defended half-heartedly, knowing it was just affectionate teasing and enjoying it.

Marilyn listened with an apparent fondness when he spoke of his sister and smiled, "That's sweet." she whispered, kissing the corner of his lips softly before kissing him.

..."Name the people you've slept with."
Marilyn froze, the colour draining slightly from her face as a scowl took over her pretty Features. It was like he'd known exactly what button to push. To be quite honest, there was one incident in particular at the end of her sixth year when she'd been in a very dark time in her life and she'd hooked up with...Anyway, basically the witch liked to pretend it had never happened. And was usually quite successful.
Until now.

"Ehm..." she coughed on the first Name, "Schuter- Then Callum, Lara, Melissa, Mike and you." The witch looked down and wished that Jagger would choose this moment to move and just sit on her and squash her flat, but no such luck.

"Anyway!" she continued quickly, "What's your favorite Position? In sex, I mean."

"That's sweet."

Jake smiled slightly, knowing his cheeks had gone slightly red at that comment. The light kisses didn't much help in making the light tinge of red go away, but he enjoyed both of them, holding the last a little longer than was necessary because he was enjoying this.

Shuter- Then Callum, Lara, Melissa, Mike and you."

Jake didn't hear anything past the first word. His eyes going wide with the shock of that name coming from Mari's lips. "You... did you just say Shuter? As in... David Shuter?" Jake asked, shock quite clear on his features. He knew of the boy, and to be quite honest, Jake wasn't the biggest fan of the boy from the brief stint of teaching the Gryffindor. But... It was interesting. "I would not have put you two together..." He added a moment later, screwing his nose up slightly and then shaking his head to dispel such thoughts.

"What's your favorite Position? In sex, I mean."

Jake let out a soft chuckle at her words. "Getting to the important questions, eh?" He teased, thinking about that for a moment. "Well..." The blush that had come earlier was nothing to what it was now. "In relationships, I prefer more intimate sex. Much... more loving." Jake's eyes averted from the witch's, feeling a little embarrassed admitting that out loud.

And most probably, going to be a shock, so he most definitely didn't wish to see that register on the witch's face.

Marilyn pursed her lips in a scowl and rolled her eyes, muttering, "We weren't together. It was once. I was young and stupid and a virgin and he literally started to and I pushed him off and left. So It doesn't really count and I prefer to not think about it." she explained shortly, cheeks red hoping to just leave it at that and never mention it again.

But the witch soon saw a blush of his own spreading across his cheeks and tilted her head curiously as his answer came that he preferred more loving and intimate sex. All irritation vanished as a warmth spread in her chest and she moved flush up against him to kiss him deeper than before, longer, as her arms moved to pull him closer.

"You forgot a question..." she breathed against his ear before nibbling it playfully, a smile lighting up her features.

At the mention of her first time being with that man, Jake was a little unsure how to deal with it. Of course, he could not say much his first time had been... different. Jake didn't judge, but it was nice in a rather weird way to know these things. He just had to hope she wouldn't ask him.

It seemed the answer on his preferred position in the bedroom (or wherever was convenient) was one that the witch appreciated. As her lips pressed firmly against his, Jake let out a soft sigh of relief. Thankful that for once Marilyn was not teasing him. Instead, he simply pressed himself against the witch, holding her as close as possible in the situation.

"You forgot a question..."

"Shit..." Jake breathed, letting out a soft groan at her ministrations before catching himself. "What's the most embarrassing situation you've been caught in?" Jake asked, pulling away from her actions as much as he loved them so that he had the capacity to think straight.

The witch laughed softly at his groan and at the fact that he had to pull away to focus on a question, having enjoyed the close contact. Jake was certainly somewhat aware by now that Marilyn loved to tease and found a great deal of amusement in it.

The witch chuckled and looked at her clock on the wall, "About....three minutes ago." Mari bit her lip, "I'm honestly just not easily embarrassed." Pulling closer to him again with a smirk she kissed him,
"Do I make it difficult for you to concentrate?" she whispered, giving him a soft kiss on the neck and nudging his leg with hers teasingly.

At the notion of being embarrassed just a few moments ago, Jake let out a soft chuckle at her words. It was funny to think that was the most embarrassing, and oddly reassuring that those people she'd slept with in the past weren't going to be something of a comparison.

"Do I make it difficult for you to concentrate?"

"Nope." Jake lied, the grin on his face as she paid complete attention to him showed that she was most definitely doing enough to make it difficult for him. "Why would such a beautiful young lady like yourself think she could distract me, hmm?" He teased, moving away from her once more, though he couldn't go too far because he was right at the back of the sofa already.

"Do I make you nervous?" Jake asked softly, his hand trailing up her back lightly. He wasn't sure why he'd asked, but it seemed like the right thing to do.

Marilyn rolled her eyes at his answer and a slight tinge of pink coloured her cheeks at the compliment he paid her, still not used to the notion of being found beautiful. However it was a notion that Jake frequently seemed to entertain and thus she found she didn't mind quite as much as she had used to, not agreeing but not arguing about it anymore, choosind instead to Focus on the man in front of her who'd had to scoot away but was still very close.

His next question accompanied by the light brushing of his hand along her spine had her let out a quiet sigh as her back arched ever so slightly at the touch. Her lips brushed his softly, just barely touching as she breathed her answer honestly, eyes flickering up to meet his, "Yes..."

The witch let her tongue tease along his bottom lip slowly, savouring the familiar taste she could never get enough of before whispering,
"What do you want right now...?"
