When he felt Nell's lips against his own, Antoine started a bit. Not that he didn't want it - more that he hadn't been expecting it. He hadn't wanted to rush into anything - although he should have realised that in Nell's line of work, it wasn't really rushing. Lifting his hand to touch Nell's cheek, he smiled a bit. "Love, don't ever apologise for anything that happens when we are alone. If you want to kiss me, do it. There is nothing wrong with a man who takes what he wants." Running his fingers over his cheek, he smiled and leaned down once more for another kiss, this one a little longer.
