"Keep me in line? But I always behave," John told Jen with a laugh as he looked down at her. "Yeah, Gibbs never buys that either."
While she went to put her bag in his room, he watched after her for a moment. It was nice to have her there, and truth be told, he really liked being there with her that morning when they woke up. He thought about what it would like to wake up with her every day. It was something he liked. But he knew he couldn't get ahead himself, especially considering they had just gotten together.
A year of falling in love with her to begin with notwithstanding.
When Jen came back out, he decided to push aside those thoughts for the moment and went over to sit with her on the couch, grinning when she hooked her leg over his. Wrapping an arm around her, he rested his other hand on her thigh. God, he really liked this.
"How about tacos," he said, about to reach up to call through to the Mexican place in the shop area of the city when Jennifer looked at him. His hand went back to rest on her leg as she spoke. "Jen...hon...I didn't think you were a sex fiend."
He shook his head, rubbing his fingers gently over her thigh. "I wasn't thinking that you'd be trying to pull me away for nooners every day," he said before grimacing at how that sounded. "All right. I'm going to stop now and just say this...I love you, and everything about you. I'm ready to...explore with you. You'll just have to teach me about your people as we go."
