Corrine's been jittering for three hours now. She got up this morning with today's goal in mind, but it wasn't until a few hours ago that the giddy-stupid set in.

When did this happen again? Her initial effort had been to turn the TV off, leave the couch for the first time in two days, and go see Sand. Every time she went for the door something in the mirror stopped her. Those three hours are now behind, and she still hasn't figured out what to wear... or do with her hair, or anything, really.

Crap. She sucks at this.

She's going as she is and that's final! The little nag in her head shuts up.

Okay. She can do this. All the way to his door, and even knocking. She laughs at herself because the thought at the last second is she should've worn a different shirt.

As she knocks, the door opens...door had been slightly ajar.

There's no one in the room at the moment. In fact, the only thing that showed the room had been lived in recently is a "Entertainment Weekly" magazine on the mantle and a small box on the corner of the dresser.

Hm. He really hasn't been doing much more than working. She peeks the door open a little more, hesitant whether to go in or not.

A peek, right? Not much to see. Corrine creeps over to the magazine, turning her head to read the different teasers on the cover. Pfft. Like we need more zombie movies.

The box. The box. Her head turns like she's reading something on the top of that, too. A hand reaches out and she tips it open.

!!!!

She snaps it shut and puts it rapidly back down. For a second, she can't decide whether to stay or go. She attempts another peek.

!!!!

The top page of the magazine rustles up in her wake. She slams the door and leans against the outside frame, grinning.

Just in time for the room's occupant to round the corner. He sees her and smiles. "Hi, hon."

Corrine's not going to let anything slip. Anything? Nothing! She saw nothing! Instead, she sweeps her arms around Sand's neck and pulls him in for a very happy kiss.

"Hey, baby. Got work, or can I safely kidnap you for a while?"
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: November 22nd, 2007 01:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sand glances towards the door ever so briefly before being consumed with a kiss. "Definitely kidnappable." Sand says, smiling, before arching an eyebrow at her.

"That door was open when I left." He's smirking.

"Busted! I peeked inside. Y'know, make sure it was really empty," she admits. It's not a fib!

She wraps her arms around his waist, hugging him close and declaring a triumphant, cartoon-y "mine!". She looks up at him. "But you're here now so I guess I don't have to be disappointed."
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: November 22nd, 2007 11:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sand looks at her. She's got the cute dialed up to 13. "What do you intend on doing with me?"
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: November 23rd, 2007 01:19 am (UTC) (Link)
"I might have a list or two..." After six months apart, thinking he could be dead, and trying to get her own head set straight, she's really just overjoyed to be in his presence. And all that time she was gone, he was thinking about her; a lot, apparently.

Corrine's trying to stow thinking about the ring for another time, but she can't help the giddy. "I didn't mean to shut you out, Sand. I had some things I had to say to people, and some time to make sure I was still-- well, me. That done, I am right back here." She smiles at him. "With you."
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: November 27th, 2007 03:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sand smiles.

And kisses her.

For at least sixty seconds.

Very well.
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: November 27th, 2007 09:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
wow

That is a proper welcome home, if you ask Corrine; not that she could answer this moment.

She's breathless when she finally, hesitantly pulls away from the kiss. "hi." A giggle. "Missed you. We're making a bit of a spectacle, y'know. Not that I'm complaining."

And terribly convenient his room is right here.
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: November 28th, 2007 07:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Hmmm." he says. "I think, if you have a complaint, you need to be taken immediately to the complaint department."


He walks over and opens his door. "Right this way, ma'am."
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: November 29th, 2007 01:22 am (UTC) (Link)
"I'm certain you can help me..." Her voice trails off, giggling, as she closes the door behind them.
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 5th, 2007 03:12 pm (UTC) (Link)

90 minutes later.

"...don't tell me you learned THAT trick while you were gone." Sand says, smirking.
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 5th, 2007 06:09 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

"Call it creativity for your benefit." She steals some more of the blanket to pull over them, then flops tiredly against him.

The truth is, with the entity came a strange sort of inspiration and deeper sight to a great many things. Corrine's still getting used to what that is and how much of that is hers. It's good to be back, and damn it's good just to be in his presence. "And, if I did," she adds, "It's because I was thinking of you. Which I was; when I could remember this plane at all."

Re: 90 minutes later.

"I know...you...it...sang 'Sentimental Journey' to me while we were trying to contact you." Sand exhales. "At least I know my general stamina isn't tied to my powers."
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 5th, 2007 09:17 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

"I remember, vaguely. Like you were there but weren't."

She giggles and leans over him, planting a kiss on his nose. "No, but I guess it's nice to know. You're still you." And whether he knows it or not, "I wasn't expecting anything less. Why, do you feel different?"
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 5th, 2007 11:43 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Sand nods. "My connection to the earth...the fault lines, the tectonic plates...it's not there. It's not catastrophic, but it's NOTICEABLE. Hector's off on somesuch but said he'd get to rewriting my DNA to its former state when he gets back.

"The catch is that it would be rewritten to the last DNA sample the JSA had of me. Before the Enchantress, before everything." He sighs. "I'd be silicoid-based again."

Re: 90 minutes later.

That-- Already the chatter is starting, telling her what this all means, like references in a dictionary. Putting mute on that sound is a convenient thing she's had to learn to do.

Before Corrine even asks what this means for them No children she's going to ask the right question. This is about him. "Do you want to? Change back, I mean? Will it affect your memory?"
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 6th, 2007 12:58 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

"It shouldn't." Sand says. "The brain can be isolated from the rest of the mojo so that I'd retain my memories...besides." He playfully pokes her in a tickle spot . "You're too memorable to forget."

He sighs. "Part of me isn't sure I want to go back to that. Part of me also feels like a field liability to the Outsiders if I don't."
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 6th, 2007 01:54 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Corrine giggles, fidgeting out of the tickle. "Try not to think about it like that! We'll always be behind you, and you'll always be the guy-- the best guy, one of the smartest and most experienced-- that we chose to lead us."

It might make him an easier target, yes; that doesn't sit well with her. She can watch his back, but what if? She props an arm under her chin and rests against his chest. "It's your choice, and no one's going to hold it against you if you don't. If you do--" She sighs, still thinking. "No kids, huh?"
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 6th, 2007 01:59 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Sand's eyebrows raise. where did that come from? "I don't know, to be honest. I still had all of the biological functions as a silica-based lifeform that I did as a carbon-based one, including full functionality of my reproductive organs. I just don't know if my sperm could succesfully interact with a carbon-based egg."

He sighs. "It's my fault for not getting DNA sampled after the fight with the Enchantress."

Re: 90 minutes later.

"An unknown. We're not used to that or anything, right?"

She isn't going to get worried and she probably startled the hell out of him, anyway. Now maybe they're even, what with the whole-- yeah, and-- !!!-- that.

"Don't blame yourself. I'm just curious, not upset, so no need to shred the upholstery."
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 6th, 2007 12:40 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Sand nods. But at the moment, he's strangely silent.

Until he looks over to his dresser...staring curiously.
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 6th, 2007 08:35 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

She's not looking where he is, not yet. She's still turning this over in her head.

"Whatever you decide, we'll deal with it together." That's when she looks up to where he's looking. In the direction of. Not at. Because-- well she doesn't want to be deceptive and she did see, and she made the kid line which is relevant to the conversation but-- eeee.

Wow, she's bad at this. She looks back at him. "Whatcha thinkin'?"
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 7th, 2007 12:34 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Sand breaks into a smirk.

"I'm thinking that small black box on my dresser was to the left of my deodorant when I left the room this morning."

He turns and shrugs. "Detective."
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 8th, 2007 02:48 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

...

"Er."

She should've guessed, but then again, Corrine's the kind to shake Christmas presents and it was just out there...

"Okay so I peeked and I shouldn't have and I didn't say anything which was probably wrong too but I didn't want to ruin-- well I mean-- and it was just sitting out c'mon a black box all out there and you know I have like zero compulsion control anyway and I was all squee about seeing you and--" She throws her hands up.
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 9th, 2007 10:03 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Sand smiles. "It's OK. I tease." He sighs. "I guessed that now would be the completely wrong time to spring that on you, so I...hadn't yet."
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 10th, 2007 02:30 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

"I didn't want to ruin your surprise," she says meekly, "But I didn't want saying that to come across wrong, either."

Corrine shifts the blanket so she can climb into his lap, then spends a few seconds brushing her fingers through his hair. She looks right at him, unable to control the huge smile. "I appreciate not 'springing' this on me yet. I'd like some time just feeling like myself again. Before Fate and Tefe found me, I also ran into Deadman. Now that I'm feeling almost back to normal, I need to find my brother, Gene. I'm sorry, love, but that's my first priority. However--"

Pulling the blankets better around them, she actually has to take a moment to let a giggle out. "You. Are amazing. I love you. I didn't approach when you were injured in Cuba because I was out of my head and I didn't want to do more damage. But when I was away, it was you I thought of, and you that I remembered. I'm not trying to push you off to some far-away date, though I think a bit more time just being together sounds nice. When I say yes, I want us both to know exactly why. This should be... thrilling, not anxious."
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 10th, 2007 02:33 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Sand smiles. "I know, love. When I came back, though...the first thing I wanted to do was to whip that out and propose so you didn't have to go another day without knowing how much I loved you, even dimensions away."
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 10th, 2007 03:57 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Okay, now--

!!!!!!!!!!! That includes a hug that may make it hard for him to breathe for a second, and a follow-up kiss that definitely should. "I know," she says. "But it never hurts to hear it again."

She's giggling again in-between kisses along his shoulder. She isn't nearly done with him yet. "Ever."
sand_hawkins From: sand_hawkins Date: December 10th, 2007 01:00 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Sand smiles. "Remind me to add 'increased stamina' to your casebio on the systems later."
damage_girl From: damage_girl Date: December 12th, 2007 03:19 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: 90 minutes later.

Corrine shuts him up with a kiss. There's time for 'later' later.
