Just Another Steele
Laura awoke in her own bed and stretched. It was over. No more
innuendos, no more sexual tension, no more games to be played.
It was over.
Or maybe it was just beginning. Laura looked over at the man
sharing her bed. He was asleep. Mouth slightly open, hair mussed
about his head. She focused on his lips, and where they had been
on her body last night. Last night. What the hell happened. She
moved to get out of bed and he stirred. She was still until she
was convinced he wouldn't wake. She needed time to herself still,
to sort out what happened. She quietly made her way to her bathroom.
A shower is what she needed to get her brain working.
It started out as a regular Friday evening for the crime fighting
suggested dinner, she said yes. He said it should be at her place
past couple weeks she had been making the drive to his and she
agreed. Still nothing unusual. So the date was made and the day's
business was carried out.
- Everyone left the office and the
weekend had begun. Remington arrived about an hour after Laura
got home and began making the evening's meal. As they
waited they drank wine and played Trivial Pursuit. Dinner was
served, eaten and clean up begun. They adjourned to the couch
to watch a Mel Brooks movie Laura wanted to see again, a choice
amicable to both. After about 30 minutes into it, Laura excused
herself to the bathroom. When she came back she saw Remington
had laid down taking up the length of the couch. There was plenty
of room for her. Her couch was an IKEA type couch, the kind that
was oversized but didn't look it. He patted the space in front
of him and extended his arm towards her. She laid in front of
him to finish the movie. Still, nothing out of the ordinary.
Laura looked at herself in the mirror. She looked the same. She
same. No, that wasn't entirely true. She felt, well, exhausted.
She needed to sort out her feelings towards him though. Did she
feel different about him?
She definitely needed a shower to get her brain working. She
reached over and turned the faucet on the tub on and disrobed.
Well, she would have disrobedhad she been wearing anything. She
checked the temperature and stepped behind the curtain.
- Remington stirred a little, he vaguely
remembered where he was, he cocked an eye open and knew exactly
where. He was in Laura's bed, naked, finally. He thought back
on the evening and remembered with a smile what had transpired.
He was extremely tired but the sound of the shower and Laura's
earlier movements had aroused him from sleep. He thought a shower
was a good idea and decided if he could take it with Laura, it
was a really good idea. He threw back the comforter and made
his way to the running water.
Remington placed an arm around Laura and she settled in. Her
getting heavy. The week had been long, the last case required
a few late
night stakeouts and they were beginning to take their toll. She
would just rest her eyes for a few moments. The last thing she
saw was a
scene with Mel Brooks, Harvey Kornman, and Madeline Kahn on the
opened her eyes with a start. There was a newscaster giving the
scores on TV. She reached for the remote and shut it off. There
was a little movement behind her. "What time is it?"
"After 11. I must have fallen asleep, more tired than I
thought." She figured he would say it was late and he should
be going but he just lay there. She turned a little and he shifted
and she was now facing him. He was mostly onhis back and she
was on her side with her arm on his chest. Essentially holding
him like a big teddy bear. He had closed his eyes again, or maybe
never opened them in the first place. She closed her eyes. Moments
later when she reopened them she noticed she was eye level with
his lips and his head was slightly angled towards her. She knew
he wasn't asleep and she leaned slightly to give him a light
kiss, then she settled back down and closed her eyes. They could
stay like this for a little longer she figured. She was comfortable
and he appeared to be also. He opened one eye and saw she had
closed hers again and he smiled. He was comfortable and thought
he could probably sleep right there. But she was so close, he
had to kiss her. He shifted a little more bringing her farther
up to him and he gently placed akiss at her temple, she moved
to look at him and he leaned in to kiss her lips. She was too
content to resist so she became an active participant. After
a few moments he brought her fully on top of him. She hadn't
resisted, that was a good sign. He kissed her again. She tangled
his hair in her hands.
- The position put her whole weight
on him and he enjoyed the full contact. He put one hand in her
hair and the other on the small of her back. Eventuallythe kiss
deepened and his hand wandered lower. She froze, then backed
She got off him and stood by the couch. He let out an exasperated
sat up. "Sorry, I was enjoying myself. I was hoping you
- She sat back down next to him. "I
was, I mean it was nice."
- "But-?" He knew what came
- "We're not ready for that."
She sat back.
- "What exactly is- that?"
He didn't think them kissing on her couch was really going to
lead to anything, except maybe more kissing.
- "You know. THAT."
- "Ah, yes. Not ready for that.
" He felt he needed to get some things straight with her.
"Laura, do you think it will be bad?" She looked at
- "Bad physically, or bad consequence
- "No, and yes. In that order."
She tried to smile. "I just can't. I'm sorry."
- "What if I said what you wanted
to hear. Do you really think that would
change your mind?" She thought for a moment.
- "Not now. Not the way you're
- "Even if I said it outside
- "I don't know, maybe."
- "Hmm, well what if I met you
in a bar. Told you what you wanted to hear.
Would that be different?"
- "Now your just being ridiculous."
She grabbed a pillow and put it over her
face. He chuckled.
- "Perhaps. Laura, I can say
what you want to hear, but that isn't what's
stopping you." He pulled the pillow off her face and she
clutched it to her
chest. She hated it when he was right.
- "I can't risk it. It isn't
just a personal thing with you. It carries over
to the agency. I worked too hard to lose that."
- "Why are you so sure that will
happen, eh? Because of your past
relationships?" She nodded. "We're different Laura.
You can't assume our
future will proceed like that. We are different people with different
circumstances." Reluctantly she agreed.
- "I know." she continued
in a small voice. "But I just can't." He placed an
arm around her.
- "You can. You know I'm not
going anywhere. And just because I might coax you into bed one
day doesn't mean I'll be gone the next. It goes much deeper than
- "I care for you a lot. You're
my best friend, my partner. I can't because-" she trailed
off. He lifted her chin so she looked him in the eyes.
- "Because why?" he asked
- "Because I'm scared."
- "Scared of me?" She chuckled
- "No. Scared of me. I don't
want to get lost in you."
- "Why would that happen? Laura
you are a strong woman. You know we can work
this out. You don't have to be like you were with them. I want
you to be you. Not pretend to be who you think a man wants you
- "So you think two bull headed
people could work it out?" He was right. She
pretended for Wilson and she didn't like it.
- "Absolutely. We both know each
other better than anyone else. I think that
says a lot there."
- "You know I want to further
what we have. I just can't see what comes after. I can't picture
life afterwards." She needed to know what came next before
she actually gave herself to him.
- "Nothing needs to change, Laura.
We don't need to change. All we need to do is make each other
happy. I think that we can." She had to ask.
- "Do I make you happy?"
He smiled and pulled her closer.
- "Yes. Would you like to know
why?" She nodded. "You accept me as I am, and
you have from the very beginning. I haven't really been myself
around a lot
of people. Mainly because I never stick around long enough, but
you have seen it, and accepted it. We've been through a lot together
and I have learned agreat deal from you. I know you need me to
say it Laura and I need you to know I love you. You knew I did,
but I've never really said it before. Well, said it and meant
it. But I do with you. I love being Remington Steele, I love
being a detective, I look forward to being with you everyday
and I suspect you feel the same. I can go on, but I am interested
on what you're thinking." he could see the tears forming.
"Laura? Are you ok?" Again she nodded.
- "I needed to hear that. I knew
it already but I just needed for you to say
it. It may sound trivial to you but I needed it."
- "It's not trivial, nothing
we do should be."
- "You know I love you too, and
you make me happy. It's not always easy, but at least it's always
- "So what do you say? You want
to be an item?" He was trying to lighten the
conversation a bit. He turned her too face him.
- "yeah, why not?" She put
her arms around his neck and kissed him. "Thanks for understanding."
She kissed him again.
Laura let the water beat down on her and she could feel her muscles
begin to relax. She put her hair under the stream and waited
for it to becomesoaked.
She was beginning to wake up a little more and the hot water
felt so good.
She sensed him before she heard him. She kept her eyes closed
she didn't know he was there. He pulled back the curtain and
stepped in the
shower with her. She smiled and opened her eyes. He turned her
reached for the shampoo bottle. He squirted some of the raspberry
liquid in his hand and replaced the bottle on it's shelf. He
began to message it into her hair, being careful not to run any
suds down her neck. He leaned in and kissed her neck as his hands
continued to massage her hair. He then turned her back around
and helped to rinse the soap away. She put her head back and
he stepped closer, tasting her neck. He pulled her close and
kissed her with a passion reminiscent of the prior evening. She
responded by wrapping her arms around him. He turned them both
around so he was now under the water. Before Laura could return
the favor, he slowly backed her up against the tile. He lowered
his hands to her waist and lifted her slightly, her back against
the wall. She adjusted herself so he could enter her and when
he did she wrapped her legs around his waist. He tried to get
her situated so that she wasn't uncomfortable. "Is this
- "Perfect." They were soon
in the throes of frenzied passion. They both knew that the sex
would be fantastic but neither were prepared for the eruption
of their subdued passions. Remington could barely look at Laura
without getting aroused.
When they were through he dried her off and helped her slip into
bathrobe, then he donned a towel. He went back into her bedroom
combed out her hair. When she went back up the stairs he was
changed into his clothes. "Are you leaving?"
- "I thought I would go home
and change. Would you like me to stay?"
"I don't want you to stay because you feel like you have
to." Feeling stupid and a bit helpless, she turned from
him and went towards her dresser. He approached her from behind.
- "I thought maybe we could spend
the day together. Maybe a picnic, or a drive up the coast."
He embraced her from behind.
- "A picnic sounds nice."
- "I'll go home and change and
give Che Rive a call." She turned to face him.
"I'm sorry about just now. I didn't mean it the way it sounded."
She looked up at him.
"I had to put something on, I mean I couldn't very well
sit around naked all day." It was her turn to raise an eyebrow.
"Or maybe I could." He moved her back towards the bed.
It was several hours later but they managed to go on a picnic
Remington kissed her for a little while longer, then he stood
up off the
couch and held out his hand. She wrapped her arms around his
waist and tucked her head under his chin. "What say we move
somewhere more comfortable."
- "I thought you'd never ask."
He led her up the few stairs to her bedroom.
- He had pictured this scenario about
a thousand times in his head but he was somewhat stunned it was
actually going to happen. Laura was still a little
hesitant. Not about what they were doing but it was almost like
caught off guard. No matter how well you knew someone, the first
them always had the possibility of being a little awkward. Especially
if it was thought about too much. Well whatever she had been
interrupted, permanently by his lips on hers. No more second
motives she decided. No more second guessing anything. He showed
her with his love that she didn't need to do that anymore. That
she didn't even need to do it in the first place. She didn't
only kiss him back willingly, but did so eagerly. When he gently
thrust his tongue into her mouth she felt like it was an aphrodisiac
with him, meant only for her. He slowly began to unbutton her
shirt and slid it off her. She broke the kiss just long enough
to shrug it free. When their lips met again, she began to return
the favor. She opened his shirt up and let her hands caress his
chest. She then began to kiss her way down. She kissed and tasted
his chest and he moaned his appreciation. As she continued to
relieve him of his shirt, she took his left nipple into her mouth,
encouraged by his rapid breathing she spent time licking both
- After a few moments she grabbed
his head and kissed him. He followed a path to her neck and ran
his hands up her back to disengage her from her bra. He ran his
hands up and down her arms sensuously before reaching for the
straps to remove it completely. Then, his hand came up and started
caressing and kneading her breast. She moaned and clutched him
against her. His hands never stopped their caressing while his
kisses began to roam all over. He came back up to kiss her mouth,
and then his head dipped down to kiss the area above her breasts,
where her cleavage started. She trembled with delight. Her hands
began to roam of their own accord... kneading his
shoulders, arms, and neck... sliding down lower to play with
the hair on his chest. He concentrated on her nipples and slowly
undid the button to her pants. Their lips met again and he pulled
her pants down as far as he could standing up. He then knelt
down and helped her legs free. He kissed his way back up to her
lips as she guided his head up to meet hers. He pulled her close
and held her tight, relishing her bare skin pressed to his. She
then pulled apart from him slightly to work on his. She was painfully
slow in releasing him from the confines of his jeans, which slid
down his body and he stepped out of them. He picked her up around
her waist to bring her up to his level, then slowly laid her
on her bed. As he laid half on her, their kisses, if at all possible
gained even more intensity. Laura trailed her hand down to the
bulge in his boxer shorts. Caressing it lightly at first. He
managed an "oh babe" as she continued. He leaned down
into her breasts again as she slipped her hand inside his shorts
to touch him. As he sucked her breasts, she arched into him,
lost in the feeling. He worked her panties over her hips and
soon they were both completely naked. Reaching low with his hand
he began to caress her thighs, then reached between her legs,
finding out how wet she had already become. He slowly slipped
a finger inside her and placed another searing kiss on her lips.
Her response excited him more than he thought possible, and he
slowly pushed his finger in and out of her. She had to break
their kiss because she was breathing so hard she was almost panting.
He rolled her over completely onto her back and she was so consumed
her hand left his penis and pulled him down for a kiss. She released
him once the need for oxygen won out. She laid her head back
on the bed, and he entered her with a second finger. She moaned
even louder and he bent his head down to kiss her cheek and side
of her face. He watched her lose herself and thought about how
beautiful she looked when she let herself go. She wanted him
in her now, but she still had a subconscious inhibition. Knowing
her better than he almost knew him self he sensed it. "C'mon
Laura, let go luv." And when he lightly let his thumb rub
over her clit, he could feel her succumb to the pleasure he was
offering. "That's it love" he said between kisses.
"That's it." She started to undulate and soon he she
could only see bright shards of light as her body erupted into
the most intense orgasm she had ever had. He managed to bring
her out of her stupor by caressing her hair, that had dampened
in the fray. He kissed her tenderly until she was back to her
old self. She increased the intensity of the kiss and pulled
him on top of her.
She parted from his lips to relay her gratitude. "incredible."
She began to
run her short nails slowly up and down his back and he trembled
the sensation. She moved him to her entrance and looked him in
the eyes. He
returned her gaze and ever so slowly, bit by bit, inch by inch,
her. She pulled her knees up angling his penetration so he could
slide deeper into her. "Oh god, Laura." She wrapped
her legs around him and again pushed hem as deep inside her as
was possible. They were still for a few moments savoring their
joining and she could feel his penis throb against her walls.
It was something she had never felt before. All the others were
to hurried, once they got in, they got moving. He twitched a
couple times inside her and she screamed. It was so intense and
amplified, she was caught by surprise. Slowly he started thrusting,
in and out, the pleasure almost unbearable. She pushed against
him in time with his own rhythm. She vocalized her delight for
him. Slowly he kept thrusting, in and out, the pleasure almost
unbearable. Both wanted to prolong the enjoyment yet eager for
the crashing climax. But they waited and kept it slow, they changed
positions several times had used up most of the bed doing so.
Both of them had managed to survive the insane pleasure they
offered each other but when once again she ended up on top, they
both had lost all control over their bodies. The pace picked
up and became frenzied as both neared their release. They both
began to experience the lights and within moments, and their
world simultaneously exploded into a kaleidoscope of colors.
When she had felt him subside with her, she crashed in a heap
on top of him. "Laura, that was absolutely wonderful."
- "yes, it was." They both
laid there until their breathing returned to normal. She rolled
off him and he took her into his embrace. She looked at him and
saw that he was close to tears. She leaned up and kissed him
softly. "I love you." he opened his eyes that were
red with unshed tears of joy.
- "I love you too, Laura. With
my entire heart and soul." Even though his tears never fell
she was moved by his love for her and a few tears escaped from
her eyes. They both smiled and closed their eyes, holding each
other close. Soon they fell into a most satisfied slumber, comfortable
in the knowledge of what they felt for each other.
