Summary: Laura and Bobbie share their precious
moments, realizing what the last two or three years has done. They become even closer, until Laura is
kidnapped and guess whom she’s stuck with!
Felicia! Though there is extreme
pain between them, Felicia’s life is in Laura’s hands, and being in a dungeon
together, they must come to an understanding.

truth, do you?"

I couldn't blame you at all for feeling that way."
I don't want my brother to be with Felicia because he will break her heart, a

Laura said quickly.

nauseous at the sight of it.

Three Days Later
tapped Bobbie on the shoulder.
“Oh, Laura! Hi. Please, sit down with me.”
smiled genuinely. “Sure, what’s up?”
“I know I asked you if you
were finally over Luke,” she said sitting down next to her, “And I’m
sorry. With what you two had, it was
wrong to think that in a few months it would all fade away.”

happily. “I understand. And I’m sorry that you keep being put in the
I don’t blame you for feeling angry with Luke, or Felicia, but you have to
remember that it was just one time.”
smiled. “One time before the trial, but
I don’t buy that it’s been only one time since then. And even so, it’s not that they slept
together, that night or any other night.
It’s that Luke kept looking at me…like he still cared. And I kept hoping. And I never thought at the times when those
moments between us were there, that he was thinking of Felicia. I thought he was thinking about the person
whose eyes he was looking into.”

He would watch you as you walked away.”
“I am not placing all the
blame on Luke. I haven’t been a saint,
but I never denied that Luke was the love of my life. I asked him so many times to take me back, to
come home. I regret that more than I can
say. Felicia threw herself at my husband
in front of me. And in her eyes it was
my fault. My marriage to Luke was over
in Felicia’s mind, and it was all my fault, so she
followed Luke pretty much everywhere.”

herself loving Mac, realizing that that one night was over, and she testified
for Luke, knowing it would cost her her own

know she wasn’t having it easy on the stand.
I’ve been there, when I testified for Stefan…but…the first time I saw
Luke after the trial, she was dancing with him like nothing ever happened except
that night of passion. So it’s hard to

Her heart sank as Bobbie held Laura and laughed, whispering something in

Luke’s sister and Felicia’s best friend, but you and I have been through so
much and I am glad. I’m glad you’re a
part of my life and I’m glad you come to me now and then.”

“Gotta go! I’m off to meet Scotty.”

Felicia can have Luke,” Laura teased, turning around to see Felicia’s face.

The Next Day
walked in, placing her purse down on the seat beside her, and waited for Bobbie
to come out. She looked around,
wondering how Lucky was doing. Liz was
such a terrific woman. She was glad
they’d found that love, and hoped that they would always be honest with each
other, unlike she and Luke had been.
hi! You make these days so much better
when I come out and see you.”
out and touched Laura’s hand.
“I’m alright. There are a lot of unanswered questions about
Roy and my love
life altogether, but as soon as I somehow figure out the answers to all those
questions, I’ll be alright. How about you?”
“I was just
thinking about our talks, these past few days, and I seem closer to you now
than I ever have been.”
smiled. “Thank God. I will gladly take advice from you.”
don’t!” Laura laughed.
great. We’re growing closer by the
minute. We’re almost closer now than we
were when we were children. It’s amazing
how much our connection hasn’t changed.
And you know what’s even more ironic?
I always felt that Luke needed me in a way that Scotty never did. But Scotty’s still here, and still needs me,
and Luke, I realize, was the one that never did. I was so lucky to have the love Scotty gave
me, and I didn’t know it.”
Bobbie’s eyes looking behind her and she turned around. Luke was there. She felt a little embarrassed, but the look
in Luke’s eyes let her know he heard pretty much the whole conversation.

feeling guilty in the least little bit.
She turned back to Bobbie.
“Bobbie, call me sometime, because there’s so much more I’d like to say
if you’d care to listen.”
brushed by Luke and walked out the door, not looking back. He watched her with puzzled eyes. He sat down shaking his head, and then looked
up at his baby sister.
doesn’t really believe that, does she?”
Bobbie looked up from writing
something. “Can you blame her? I choose to believe that you really loved
her, but because of your actions with Felicia, I’ll never even expect her to
think she should. Scotty really does
love her, in the same way he did back then.
I’ve seen them together.”
walked to the kitchen and Luke sat back, chuckling sarcastically. A few minutes later, Bobbie came back.
in to her. “How could Laura think that
Scott Baldwin could have loved about her as much as I did?”
licked her lips and pretended to think.
“Well, from her point of view, let’s see. She dumps an incredible husband who loves her
for the man who the world believes kidnaps her, when really they’re on the run. After almost twenty years of the most intense
love she’s ever felt, her husband starts pining for another woman. As her marriage falls apart, she desperately holds
on to one last thread. When that
vanishes, and her husband has ruined two families, Scotty is the one who is
there for her. Her husband, knowing he’s
ruined two families, isn’t at all concerned about his own family, only his one
time mistress’s. Then, while her husband
divorces her, and is spending most of his spare time elsewhere, Scotty shows
her how much he still loves her. And
every time Laura turns around, you’re with Felicia.”
eyed him sadly, successfully placing guilt on him as she turned to leave.
The Next Day

Stefan didn’t realize that Bobbie was walking back from the bathroom
through a side door of Laura’s office, fully able to hear everything that he said.
“Can I help
you?” Laura replied.
you’ve got to help me get Nikolas to let me help him. You will help me. You owe me that much.”

own death, framed my husband, and tore my son’s life apart? I’m sorry.
I’m through with you.”

grabbed her arm.
“Let go of
me,” she said slowly.

So were both of Laura’s sons.

eyes widened slightly. Luke felt anger
pour over him, and Lucky looked at his father.
The next thing Luke heard was the sound of Laura’s hand connecting with
Stefan’s face. Laura had calmly turned
away, then surprised Stefan by turning back, smacking him with the back of her

brother showed me. And when you

you were sure, do you remember what you said?”

“But I can’t take it back, so either you forgive me or you don’t.”

shaking her lightly, and then touched her face with his hand.
“Don’t you know that I’m the only
one who understands? I was there the
whole time. I loved you. I loved you more than I’d ever loved
anyone. Nikolas is ours. That’s why you’ve got to help me get him

me get him when you first brought him into my life? Sort of the way you convinced him that I

“Lucky actually asked me why I had
sex with Stavros. I’ll never forget
that. You weren’t the one that hurt me
most. Nikolas wouldn’t let me touch him,

of a person, and Luke!”
He tried to
hold her and she began to cry in his arms, very softly, and she surprised
herself by still wrapping her arms around him.

come out of nowhere.

“Laura, let’s go. I’m going to take you somewhere else. You can’t blame yourself for this.”

“Luke! Leave her alone! You all can stay here and fight it out but
she and I are leaving!”
“Mom?” Lucky asked, following a little.

I don’t mean to keep you.”
Scotty grabbed Laura’s face,
keeping her eyes on his. She was so
nowhere else I’d rather be, and you know that.”
Just then, Luke came around
the corner, and when he saw Scott’s hands on Laura’s face, he decided that it
would be a good idea to stay. Laura’s
bedroom was an interesting place for them to be.
She placed her hands over
his. “I pictured it all the time. I’m sure it was beautiful, stunning and
romantic and hot. All the things I dread
now. All the things I haven’t felt in
years. I keep seeing my husband--my
ex-husband with another woman, and I wonder if I ever pop into his head? Does he remember us-“
She was so
embarrassed she stopped and brushed his hands quickly away.

confused. “Scotty, I’m sure those are
the exact things you thought of when I ran off with Luke. And here I am spilling my heart out to
you! Please, I’m so sorry.”

it, because I let you go.”

the world better, stronger, as amazing as you.”
lunged forward and grabbed her again.
She looked back and forth in his eyes.

want to kiss you. You’ve known that

Laura smiled. “Well, she has an ego about as large as

She’s smart, and ambitious. But
she’s especially ambitious about beating me.”

answered it like a pro. When she got

suppose, you probably wouldn’t mind at all, would you?”
He didn’t say anything.

“Oh no, Laura,” he said with a

“I saw you kissing Felicia so

I don’t. How could I?”

“Damn right I meant it. I wish I’d done almost everything

“You know, I always felt the
love you had for me. That’s what drove
you to do a lot of those insane things you did.
But when you touched me, I could feel how much you loved me. And that’s why I followed you. I would’ve done anything, and I did. You made me feel something
indescribable. And I suppose it was just
a little difficult to get used to the idea of you stopping.”
blinked disbelieving. “What, are you
crazy? I didn’t. That’s not what happened.”
“Really? Then explain
it to me.”
just realized he couldn’t. She looked at
him, and then knowing he couldn’t answer, she ran off.

her alone. Laura looked up to see

Laura said pointing to Bobbie. “You want
to question me on what’s right? You tried to get pregnant by Scotty so you
could keep him away from me! You played
every dirty trick in the book, and before we were thrown together by the idiot
I’m standing next to, we worked very hard to get along! You call me a saint, a princess, and a
tramp. Bobbie, pick one.”
turned around and looked at Luke, then turned back to Bobbie. “Did you tell Roy about your past? Did you not screw up terribly? You said I had no right to fake my own death. All of you were against it! It was stupid, wrong, and heartless. Stefan though, you can’t give me that line
now, can you? Did I ever try to justify what
I did? Every single one of you now knows
that although Stefan has been a big part of my life, he has screwed me over as
often as I’ve ever disappointed him!”

“Oh shut up!” Laura said to

line! I was trying to save my
mother. I couldn’t exactly think about
the next day. I was trying to save what
was left of my mother’s mind. If it had
been Emily, you would’ve allowed everyone in the world to think you were dead
to protect her! Can you deny that?”
“No,” Monica said.

“I think I make the right
choice, I try to please everyone and I always screw up everything. I’m sorry, Bobbie. I’m so sorry-“
come on!” Bobbie smiled. “You know what
it was, Laura? I did play every nasty
trick to get the man I wanted! Scotty

stepped up and took Laura out of the hospital.
months later, Laura was taking a peaceful walk beside the river. The river cascaded along, and she remembered
being caught in it, and Luke saving her before the helicopter rescued them. Despite the fact that he’d practically pushed
her out of a plane, when he pulled her up out of the water, cupped her face and
looked at her that way, she would forgive him anything…and she did.

she pushed Felicia to the ground, collapsing on top of her as the shots rang
“Shh, we’ll find her!”
“No, my little girl!
Laura, you’ve got to help me. Those
men were following me and my child!
They’ve got my daughter!”
“I know,” Laura said, caressing
Felicia, not concentrating on the past two years, but remembering everything
that had happened before that. Felicia
was screaming, tears puddling under her eyes. Laura clutched Felicia to her.

Webber Spencer woke up cold, and in a dungeon-like room. She looked around, and the person she truly
despised in the world, Felicia Scorpio Jones.
Her lips were blue and her face was as pale as she’d ever seen. Laura ran over to her, and curled her up in
her arms, trying to keep her warm.
That’s when she noticed how badly Felicia’s head had been damaged.
“Georgie…” Felicia’s blue eyes opened to meet Laura’s own

“Aches, they must have knocked

the blood covering Laura’s hand told her that Felicia’s injury was worse than
you’ve got to stay conscious.”
you’re not! Tell me about Georgie.”
Felicia slowly rambled on about Georgia,
Laura tore off her jacket, not minding the cold, and wrapped it around
Felicia’s head, tightening it, hoping to stop the bleeding. Felicia passed out.
“Dammit!” Laura ran
to the small window with bars. The
window didn’t open to the outdoors. She
screamed but knew no one would hear her.

“So, what? Do you

Helena laughed. “No Laura.
That would ruin my plans for Luke.”
“Luke! What are you doing to him?”

Helena saw that Laura

Helena smiled and was

Felicia up and drag her onto the little cot they called a bed. She laid Felicia on it and drew her into her
arms, thinking body heat may help.

“Who knows why Helena does anything,”
Laura said, trying to keep Felicia from thinking about Luke.

Laura saw some blankets and some food.

aided Felicia, wrapping her in blankets and feeding her with her hands. Though Laura was hungry, it was obvious who
needed the food more. Felicia ate it
all, and then collapsed back into a deep sleep.
How long would this last? And how
long could Felicia last?
Three Weeks Later
and Felicia began to talk a little, trying to distract themselves from the fear
they felt. Laura continued to let
Felicia have most of the food. Laura
felt her insides cramp up from starvation.

“Yes. I remember the first time we talked. I don’t think I was even attracted to him when
I snuck under his bed trying to get my treasure back. But the first time he spoke, I was afraid he
would figure me out; that I was a girl, and he did, and after that, I guess it

she could believe Luke still loved her.
“It’s hard. He left me, over and over. He made me want to live, he made me want to
stay, and ever since then I’ve been trying to get that back, get that feeling

do I even bother? Felicia has

Helena just walked
away. Felicia moaned in pain. Laura ran over to her, though she was
fatigued herself from lack of food.

felt her own stomach muscles cramp up from starvation. She felt nauseous from what was happening to
her body. Felicia fell asleep in her
arms again, and it was almost as if they had been friends since the Aztec
adventure. As if none of the last two
and a half years had happened. None of
that mattered anymore. They were forced
to be face to face, and understand. In

A Little Over
a Week Later
was asleep on the hard bed and Laura thought she would pass out at any
moment. Her blonde hair was greasy and
un-brushed, but Felicia’s looked even worse.
The lack of water and food had been hard on them both, but the blow to
Felicia’s head had taken a greater toll on her system.

soon. I will not let you die.”
Felicia asked weakly. “I got pleasure
out of hurting you, but I never really won anything

came over and covered her up.
Laura replied lightly.
why do you care if I live or die?”
“Because your children love you.”
“I’m trying, Laura. I want to be with my girls.”
“Come here,” Laura said, holding
“You did what I never did. You created your own life. After Frisco, I just kept searching.”
“You don’t need to replace him, just

“I’d give anything if he’d
come rushing through these doors and hold me.”
Laura realized Felicia had done more
“I grew up, Felicia, and I had to
let go of the dream.”
Felicia laughed sarcastically. “How do you do that? Just let go of your dream?”
“I had to survive to take care of my
Felicia opened her fatigued eyes,
comforted as she stared into Laura’s.
“I’m sorry,” Felicia said.
“Please check on my children,
Laura. Mac too, make
sure they’re all okay.”
“No, come on Felicia!” Felicia began closing her eyes. “I’m not going to let you do this!”
Then Felicia passed out. Laura felt tears slipping down her face, and
she felt true friendship once again for this woman. She tapped Felicia’s face lightly, shaking
her. Laura found herself too weak to do
much more for her, from her own lack of weeks of food. She nearly passed out herself, as her muscles
and bones ached, yet she ran over to the bars and screamed, praying anyone
would hear her.
Six Hours Later
Laura didn’t wake up as Luke rushed
through the bars with Roy. She was passed out, as well as Felicia. Laura’s body had wasted away, and she now
looked as bad as Felicia. Luke kneeled
down beside her, lifting her head onto his knee.
“Laura, Laura, can you hear me?”
She didn’t respond.
“Roy, get over here, help me!”
Roy bent down to examine Laura. He checked her pulse as Luke’s breathing
became hard and uneven with fear.
“She’s got a pulse, but look at her. But I know she’ll survive, she’s too strong

racing through the hospital doors.
“Barbara, Laura’s fine. Felicia’s going to be fine.”
“Is it true? Laura and Felicia were held prisoner, and
Laura took care of Felicia?”
“Felicia keeps saying Laura’s name,
and all the food was given to Felicia.
But Felicia’s in a coma.”
“Laura did all that?”
Bobbie looked away, amazed. Then she looked angrily back at Luke.
“Maybe this’ll be a lesson to you to
stop putting people you’re supposed to care about on the line. I’m going to check Felicia’s charts and then
I’m going to see Laura. Do not see
either of them, Luke, you’re the reason my best friend and my sister-in-law are
in the hospital.”
Luke was left bewildered. He walked right into Laura’s room without
even acknowledging what Bobbie had said.
She was sleeping peacefully, a little too peacefully. He touched her cheek with the back of his
hand and she opened her eyes in fear, gasping.
“It’s alright, you’re safe.”
“Luke. Are you okay?
“Yes, I’m fine. You’re still very weak, just rest.”
“Where’s Felicia? Where is she?”
“Barbara’s checking on her, I think
she’ll be fine. You’ll be out of here tomorrow.”
Laura closed her eyes. “It’s my fault. It’s my fault what’s happened to her.”
“How can you say that? You saved her.”
“I’ve got to talk to her,” Laura
said, trying to move. Luke stopped her.
“Why? Because I’m too weak?”
“No. She’s in a coma.”
“What? Is she going to wake up?”
“We all think so. Don’t worry about it.”
“Don’t worry about it? It’s my fault, I’ve got to see her-“
“Don’t baby me, let me go!”
He threw her back against the bed.
“You’ve got to stay here.”
“Luke, I’ve got to talk to her, I’ve
got to do something.”
Luke was beyond shocked that Laura
was feeling this way.
“Do you need me to stay with you?”
She looked at him with a raised
eyebrow. “Do I need you to
Before he could answer, Bobbie came
through the door.
I told you to leave her alone!” She
grabbed his shirt from behind as he humorously objected, and she threw him out,
yelling at him the whole time. Bobbie
slammed the door behind her and rolled her eyes.
“Hey, how you
feeling? Sorry about that.”
“It’s alright. You didn’t have to throw him out. I honestly don’t want anyone protecting me
anymore. Let me kill him.”
“Okay,” Bobbie said casually.
“Is Felicia going to wake up?”
“God, I hope so. Her signs look good. You’re going to be out of here tomorrow!”
“She’s fabulous. I brought her.”
Laura looked up and saw her
“Oh, hi sweetheart,” her eyes were
full of happiness. “Come here.” Lulu ran into her mother’s arms.
Before Laura could get a good grip
on her child, Lucky and Nikolas broke threw the doors screaming “MOM” and hugged
her. Bobbie smiled, thinking how much
she missed BJ.
Laura walked into Felicia’s
hospital room. Laura was still extremely
weak, but she had eaten and was still planning to do all Tony had told her to. She walked over calmly. Sitting down, she touched Felicia’s
hand. Mac had just left to go check on
the kids. They were divorced and she was
once again a single mother of children she loved more than anything.
“Felicia, it’s me. It’s Laura.
We had a pretty bad adventure together, but the adventure’s
over…and you’re safe. So you have to
wake up. Your daughters miss you so
much. Could you give me a sign that you’re
at least trying to wake up?”
Laura let go of Felicia’s hair. “I can uh…brush your hair.”
Laura stood up and brushed Felicia’s
hair softly. Bobbie opened the door
silently, surprised to see Laura there, and watched quietly.
“You know, I don’t want you to feel
like there should be any hesitation in opening your eyes and living again. I don’t want you to feel guilty anymore. Don’t get me wrong - you hurt me - but it’s
all over now. Don’t let Luke ruin your
life, and don’t let me. I saw you as…as
a friend again, and it was nice. Maxie and Georgie need you so
doesn’t want to see you until you wake up.
Can you hear me, Felicia?”
Laura sighed. “Open your eyes. Come on Felicia, open your eyes, open
your eyes and look at me. If you can’t
open your eyes, then tell me how I can get you to open them. Please, Felicia.”
Just then Laura turned to see
Bobbie. She dropped the brush and
Felicia’s blonde hair.
“I’m sorry, Bobbie.”
“Am I not supposed to be in
here? I just wanted to talk to her, tell
her we were out of danger-“
“Laura, you are trying to save
her. You have done nothing wrong.”
Laura looked back at Felicia’s pale
face. “Yeah well, maybe her hearing my
voice puts her into a deeper coma.”
Bobbie took Laura’s hand. “No, that’s not true. But I had no idea you could be any better of
a person than I already knew you to be, but you just proved it.”
Bobbie pulled Laura’s body close to
hers and held her.
“Want to go get some lunch?”
Laura walked over to Felicia one
more time. “You have daughters, be the
mother you want to be and open your eyes.
Leave the guilt with the coma, and you walk out of it.”
Bobbie and Laura talked about Roy,
and their children, but both thought about Felicia.
“You know, Felicia survived watching
Maxie almost die, and you know that’s much harder
than being in your own pain. So Felicia’s going to wake up.”
“Bobbie, you don’t have to be
strong. She’s your best friend. And I’m here for you now, and I will do
whatever I can to bring her back. If you
have even the slightest suggestion of what I can do for you-“
“Laura, you’ve done
enough. Roy is being so good to me-“
Perfect! Oh, I’ve got to go,”
Laura said grabbing her purse and rushing out the door.
“Laura, where is she?”
Laura stopped and held his
hand in front of Felicia’s door.
“You have to talk to her the way you
used to. Be honest, don’t worry about
anyone’s feelings, you just have to bring her back.”
“I will do anything, you know that.”
“Yes, I do.”
“Thank God you found me.”
Laura smiled. “Any time, Frisco.”
He flashed that seductive smile at
Laura unintentionally, and then bolted into Felicia’s room.
“Damn,” Laura whispered to herself.
Frisco felt tears prickling his
eyes. He sat down and gripped Felicia’s
“Felicia, it’s me.” He paused.
“I really don’t know what to say except I’m sorry. I need you to wake up.” He paused again. “And I need you to know how much every minute
of every day I’m thinking of you. But I
know I have a lousy way of showing it.”
She didn’t respond. He took her tiny hand and touched it to his
cheek, rubbing skin to skin.
“Can you feel me, Felicia? Can you feel how much our girls need you to
wake up? How much…I need
you to wake up? I need you, Felicia,” he
whispered fearfully. “I need you. If you’ll forgive me everything, there’s
nothing I won’t do.”
Everything in the room seemed dead,
and she was no exception to that.
“Do you remember at the end of our
Aztec adventure in ‘84, when you were telling me you didn’t know who to believe
in? You said you’d be careful before you
believed in anyone else and I begged you to believe in me? Remember what you said? You said there was so much you had to do
first, that you weren’t ready?
Remember? I know you do. It was out in the backyard of your
grandmother’s house in Texas. You were wearing a white dress and cowgirl
boots. Do you remember what I said?”
He paused. “I said people were more important than
places. God, if only I’d listened to
myself. Because honestly, all these
years away from you, and I never thought I wouldn’t come back to you, and if
you leave me now, I know that my whole life will have been a
waste. Worse than a
waste. Don’t leave me,
Felicia. Open your eyes.”
In that moment, Felicia’s eyes
seemed to struggle. He noticed a large
tear slide down her closed eye as she struggled to wake up.
“Come on, that’s it. Come on Princess, be
as strong as I know you are.”
She continued the process of forcing
her tired eyes open. Finally, they
blinked open, seeing the love of her life with tears streaming down his face in
front of her.
“Frisco,” she cried.
He pulled her into his arms, both of
them crying. He held her head close,
which hurt just a little. The wounds
weren’t fully healed. She didn’t
care. If only this moment could last.
“I love you, Felicia.”
“I wanted you to come and rescue me
She pulled back and sniffed, then laid
back, still weak. “Who told you?”
“Laura came and got me.”
“Laura! Oh my God, is she alright?”
“Yeah, she’s fine.”
“She found you, to help me?”
“I have to talk to her. Get her for me?”
“Just for a

She was still fascinated by him. She

smiled and walked away.
A Month Later
walked into Luke’s office, after the whole ordeal was all over.
what’d I do now?”
Laura let a small smile touch her
“Same damn thing you always do,
Luke, confuse me. I just came here to
tell you that Felicia’s back at home, and she’s fine. Helena Cassadine
won’t hurt her again.”
“Why are you telling me this, Laura?”
“I thought you’d care.”
“I care, but what’s really going on
here? Are you alright? The Cassadines are
still going to use you to get to me.”
“Laura, we have a past.”
“Exactly, a past.”
“Luke, I could’ve been killed, and Felicia
could’ve too, I’ve got to go.”
“Laura, quit running!”
She turned back. “Well if that isn’t the pot calling the
“There’s a reason they took you.”
“Yes, I am the mother of your

“Would you forget about
Felicia? And I don’t think the Cassadines believe we still don’t care about each other.”
“Well I do.”
"You betrayed everything I thought we had for
ten seconds of muscle contractions with a younger woman."
Luke just studied her.
"Scotty never would've done
that to me," Laura said, heading for the door.
Luke roughly grabbed her and
fiercely wiped the lipstick off her face with his fingers, streaking it, and
then smothered her mouth with his. He
breathed her in, crushing her lips painfully, and then ran his tongue smoothly
along the bottom of hers. He kissed her
over and over, then as quickly as he reached for her, he pulled away. Laura pushed him back lightly, and he grabbed
“Take your hands off me,” she said
He did. She walked away from him. Before he could say anything else, she threw
the photo of the two of them that he had on his desk into his stomach, and it
shattered when it hit the floor.
“That’s what’s left, Luke.”
Luke slowly bent down and picked up
the shattered frame. He held it up to
“The frame is broken, but the
photo’s still perfect.”
She wasn’t sure what he meant by

"If you come any closer I
swear to God I'll break your neck!"
"Laura, Laura, just tell me
what you want me to say."
"Luke! I don’t know what you could say! It’s a little late. So many things could’ve been said months ago
and it would’ve changed things. But it
"God Laura, you don't change a
bit. You play with my head, and you just
leave it with more questions that will never be answered!"
“Me! You’re the one that left me with a spark!”
He said nothing at first, then found some words.
“Laura, I haven’t had anything in my life that meant anything in a long
time. And you’re still here and I still
want you here.”
He started leaning in, but she
turned her head. He gripped her face,
turning it back, and for some reason she just let it be. He pressed his mouth on hers. He opened her mouth with his lips and pulled
her upper lip into his mouth, nipping it and suckling roughly. He wrapped his arms around her and
eventually, when the fear was pushed away by his passion, she relaxed and
remembered him. Pretty soon, he was
placing soft, loving kisses all over her face.
Her cheeks, her forehead, her nose, her lips. It was making her remember how much she loved
him. She pulled back from him and hit
"You lied to me!"
"You lied back!"
He grabbed her arm and slammed the
door with his foot, before knocking everything off of his desk and pushing her
onto it. His hands ran through her hair
briskly, and she whispered his name. He
pushed her harder against the desk, massaging her lips with his own. Laura cupped his face to push him back for a

breathed her in, his hands gripping the back of her head as he pushed her back,
knocking her head against the desk. She
looked at him with her baby blues, and amazingly enough, she was able to look
both shy and seductive at the same time.
She began to unbutton his shirt, lightly letting her lips touch his, but
then quickly pulled back.
you want me, Luke?”
tried to answer her with a kiss, but that wasn’t good enough. She allowed him to kiss her though, his
tongue gliding with hers, as she flicked his buttons off the material, almost
too quickly to keep the buttons intact.
She released his lips, looking at him.
Laura turned away, and then she looked back at him, licking her

he whispered before kissing her hungrily, wrapping her in his arms, imprisoning
her lips and body in his touch.
entwined as well as legs, he kissed her neck as she bent her head back. The heat intensified between them, the desire
even stronger than they both remembered.
During hot, open kisses, he pulled her back, cupping her face as she
looked at him, bruised lips and bright eyes.
His hands went from her face, through her long hair. Her eyes were curious, and wanting.
