    Summary

    What had it been? Months, now? Of going through these puzzles and theorems day in and day out, losing herself to the windowless dark of the Canaan House basements where time passed like it had somewhere else to be and her only companion most of the time was the sound of her constructs dissolving into dust as trial after trial got the better of her. All that on top of the frankly humiliating incident with her cavalier in the pool, which had given her cause to press her already bruised and bleeding nose even more firmly to the grindstone. Every time she was around Gideon, her cavalier looked at her differently, with eyes that were filled with questions and something else Harrow couldn’t - wouldn’t - name.

    --

    A one-shot following the pool scene, where Harrow has still not managed to come to grips with the way she's let down her walls to Gideon. Angst and hurt/comfort fluff ensues.

    “Do you want me to try?” Gideon said.

    “What?”

    “You got all hot and bothered without me trying. Do you want me to try?”

    Their newfound habit of cuddling gets interesting.

    Summary

    Harrow took a deep breath, closed her eyes, and said quietly, almost as if she was afraid of the words leaving her mouth, "Will you kiss me again?"

    Gideon blinked. She must have hallucinated, or maybe she actually had fallen asleep already and was now dreaming. But Harrow didn't open her eyes, and looked rather like she wanted to crawl into a hole and die.

    Gideon propped herself up on her elbows and said, "I'm sorry?"

    "Earlier, in the pool..." Harrow paused and took another deep breath. "You kissed me. On the nose. I think I would like you to kiss me again. If you want to."

    "On the nose?"

    "The nose, or...anywhere else you might like to?"

    "Is this a trap?"

     

    (It is not a trap)
