Slater greeted the kiss with a smile, holding her close as she settled on his lap. He was glad she liked it. Everything - her reaction, presents, had gone to plan and he was quite happy himself. "Course you're special - you're the only one apart from my kids who brings out the soft side in me. The mollycoddle side... that's dangerous, you know," he smirked, patting her behind as if he were scolding her.
