It was nice to know Ian hadn't annoyed Larissa yet. He felt he could relax around her. In time. It wasn't some switch he could just turn off. As she talked, Ian sipped at his drink. Her advice was honestly pretty good. Ian could agree that it at least sounded helpful and like sound advice. At the same time, he didn't know if he could put it into practice. Perhaps there was a lack of confidence after all.
Ian was determined to be a good guest and not be annoying. He would will himself to relax, to settle himself. Of course, to try and bring Larissa's advice to life, to at least try it out while he was a guest in her home. But all too soon the mood was changing. It wasn't a change that Ian was unfamiliar with. Ian was odd. There were so many ways in which he was pathetic. But there were ways in which he was bizarre. How was it possible for a young man who seemed to nervously stumble through any social interaction to cheat on his boyfriend with said boyfriend's sister? Such actions seemed to conflict with each other almost completely.
All it took was to feel her nails on his neck, to feel the warmth of her closing in on him. The tingling sensation on his flesh from being touched by someone new. Ian set his glass down beside him, coaster be damned, and wrapped his arm around the woman he'd met not even hours before. He pulled her closer and at the same time leaned into her kiss.
Ian broke the kiss and glanced in the direction of the bedroom. "All the way over there? What if I can't make it that far?"
He grinned. That was why it had been the kitchen floor of his apartment. Ian backed away, his hand gliding down Larissa's arm to clasp hers. He gently pulled her towards the bedroom. Once he'd climbed the single step he dropped her hand and turned to face her. Ian's nervousness effectively melted away in certain situations. He hardly realized the difference. A part of him was still waiting to be yelled at, judged, struck down. But it chose to take a less controlling role in his actions. For the most part. "This... uh. It's a nice layout. Convenient bedroom location. So... Five dollars get the bed or floor? T... uh. Two for one special... I mean. Uh."
He was aware that he could quite easily kill the mood. To shut himself up he pulled Larissa in for another kiss.@Larissa Parrish
