So Stay With Me (And Hold Me Tight)

Title: So Stay With Me (And Hold Me Tight)
Pairing: Priya/Tony
Rating: R
Setting: After "The Hollow Men"
Words: ~900
Summary: Now they had nothing but life ahead of them. Their lives.
Written for thrace_adama  for More Joy Day. :D

 
“Tony?” Priya poked her head into the bedroom, tugging her towel more tightly around her body. The room was suspiciously empty but she was so sure he’d said he was going to get some rest while she took a shower. She decided to give it another try. “Tony? I don’t have any clean clothes, and I was wondering if you had anything that I could wear…” Still no answer. Priya frowned. “…Or not.”

Suddenly, she felt a pair of strong arms scoop her up. She let out a yelp arms flailing as Tony swung her around and dropped her onto the bed. Her towel slipped away as he settled over her, dropping hot kisses along her jawline. “I’m thinking not.”

Priya let out a deep sigh, letting her eyes slide shut. “I thought you said we should get some rest tonight.” Five minutes ago, she’d been so sure she’d be asleep the moment her head hit the pillow. The warm flame of desire that flickered to life as Tony’s hands slid up the curve of her hips, waist, coming to a rest cupping her breasts was starting to make her rethink that.

“We have,” kiss, “the rest,” nip, “of our lives,” lick, “to rest.” She felt him pull back and opened her eyes to find him staring down at her intently. “Besides, I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time.”

Priya laughed as she threaded her arms around his neck. “We just had sex a few hours ago; I don’t think this really qualifies as ‘a long time’.”

“Yeah, but that was Last-Night-Of-The-World-Song-Played-On-A-Solo-Saxophone sex,” he said. “This is…” Tony blinked. “Well I can’t really come up with another song right now, but it’s different.”

Priya’s hands slid down his back, gathering up his shirt and tugging it up over his head. As soon as the garment was out of the way, Tony swooped down on her again, mouth sealing hard over hers. His hips pressed intimately against hers, the rough denim of his pants against her bare skin, making her arch against him.

Tony was right. Last night, they made love—long, slow, steady. Passion and heat smoldering inside her, a continual burn that felt like it could go on forever. Priya thought that she could have been perfectly content staying just like that for the rest of her life. Last night, they didn’t know if they were going to live another day. And now… well now they had nothing but life ahead of them.

Their lives.

“Alright, alright, you win,” she said with an exaggerated sigh. She grinned, watching as he bolted to his feet, like he couldn’t get his pants off fast enough. “Relax.” She reached up, brushing her fingers over his chest. “I’m not going anywhere.”

Priya lay back as Tony settled over her again, warm and solid and whole. He lowered his lips to hers again, softer this time but it sparked the warm glow from earlier into a full-blown fire in her veins. He was gentle with her, he was always gentle. But the slide of his tongue against hers, the brush of his fingers between her thighs, was enough to have her aching with need.

He slid into her, fast and hard and Priya saw stars. She clutched at him as he thrust into her again and again, her hips moving in time with his. Anxiety and adrenaline all burned off in the heat of passion blazing inside of her. Her climax hit her unexpectedly, bright and sudden, leaving her sagging back into the mattress, content and sighing. It didn’t matter that it was over so fast, they had the rest of time to do whatever they wanted together.

When Tony rolled off of her, he dropped a quick kiss on her cheek before immediately falling fast asleep. If she hadn’t been so tired herself, she would have laughed out loud. She supposed he was just one of those men that was completely useless after sex, unless there was an apocalypse looming.

Lying in the dark, listening to the sound of his breathing, which, she noted, bordered on a snore, Priya found herself wondering for the first time why on Earth she was drawn so strongly to this man. The circumstances of their meeting left them unaware of any common interests, likes, or dislikes. In so many ways Tony was a complete stranger to her; the only thing she knew for certain that they shared was their prison term in the Dollhouse.

Yet, that made her all the more certain that she was meant to be with him. Even without names and dates, without the little details that shape and change, something at the very core of her connected to something at the very core of him. She wasn’t sure she could be thankful for what the Dollhouse turned her into, but she could be thankful to know that somewhere, buried deep within the two of them, is an unbreakable bond.

It was all too much thinking for one night. So, instead, she insinuated herself into Tony’s arms, laid her head on the pillow, and fell into a deep sleep. She awoke the next morning to the smell of eggs and coffee. Before she even opened her eyes, she was grateful on taking up Topher’s offer of upgrading Tony’s cooking skills.

Ha ha, oh, PURE WIN!!!

Thank you so much for this, Ray! It was delicious, such a great combo of sexy and sweet, and I can only hope they get even a second of this kind of happiness in the future. And if they do not, well, I will always have this! *hugs the ficlet tight*

I think this was my favorite line, because it's really the soul-deep recognition between them that so fascinates me: Even without names and dates, without the little details that shape and change, something at the very core of her connected to something at the very core of him. REALLY lovely way to put it, hon.

*sigh* I wonder if their breakup will be dealt with in the finale? Or their inevitable doom. Joss likes his doomed romances. (All of my OTPs have been trashed by him. Maybe one reason why I wasn't completely horrified with The Poof. IDK.)

But yes. Let them cling to this happy!

Good question--I've been wondering that myself. And if it was really a breakup breakup, actually. They "don't do this anymore" but maybe that was just a temporary thing, because of the war. Certainly we know how the Boyd scene was made to look one way but didn't end up amounting to much...

I don't know that I'm so invested in this pairing that my heart would be broken by Joss dooming it (dented, perhaps, though). Maybe because they at least had a tiny bit of happiness? Maybe because I know that no matter what, they would find each other again eventually, somehow, as the show has proved over and over? I don't really know, but if it's done well (or even just not completely screwed up!), I think I'd be OK with them having a tragic end. Not that I'm not hoping for happiness, obviously!

Loved this! Excellent job.

*sigh* I love this. I'm a total sucker for whole connected on a primal level kind of thing. :D

I love this about them. They're like Lee and Kara here, with the seeming inevitability of it all. There's so much different about them, but that instant bond that doesn't need anything else is just so compelling.

I hope someone (not me!) will write fics with them living together and getting to know each other and falling even more in love. :D That's my hope.

Glad you enjoyed.

This is so sweet and nice. And I had to comment to tell you I could hear Priya's accent throughout. This all sounded exactly like her. :-)

:D I'm so glad about the accent! :D I love writing Whedon characters because when you've gotten the dialogue right it just clicks. :)
