I couldn’t live without Rachel Gibson, and that’s pretty damn literal…reason being she saved my life and all.

It’s not something I can get into, but that’s a pretty clear-cut summary of the situation…my ass was on the line. She saved it. Next case. But, I suppose if you want to do more than scratch the surface, Rachel’s become even more important than that. She did more than save my ass, she’s taught me a lot about life in general…made me learn to appreciate it, I guess.

I’m not exactly a fun guy…never have been, much anyway. Then I met Rachel…to be blunt, she’s kind of a dork. But I don’t mean that in a bad way and I’m not saying that just to stop her from smacking me later.…she’s nine kinds of quirky, ten kinds of goofy, and most of the time she’s not even totally aware of it. And I think that’s incredible…that she can wear qualities like that so well, and be more attractive because of them. Even when she’s awkward or uncertain, she shines, and she encourages it in other people.

I worked Special Forces for years. I’ve stared death in the face more than once…and I’ll be the first to admit, I’m afraid of looking like a fool. She’s not, she never is…no matter how much she protests to the contrary. It’s a brand of fearlessness that doesn’t get enough praise, in my opinion…and I both respect and love her for it. She makes me do crazy stuff, and *want* to do crazy stuff…I say stupid shit around her. I do goofy things…and she makes it okay. It’s a gift, the kind of freedom I have around her, because with Rachel…being goofy or crazy *isn’t* being goofy or crazy. It’s just…being alive, and enjoying it, you know what I mean?

Rachel saved my life…but I’ll tell you right now, my life wouldn’t be worth as much to me if she wasn’t in it. And you can take that straight to the bank.

I think you write these things just to throw me off guard Tom. I'd never expect something like this from you, and then ta-da! There it is. Not even encrypted which... again? Shocking.

Oh and I'm going to the bank with that one babe.

Well, after the bombshell the other night...I figured a little open honesty was the least I owed you.

Call it a lick and a promise for no more secrets. At least none involving the government or secret identities or anything.

It wasn't that big of a bombshell was it? Okay maybe it was a small nuke set off in your living room, but we dealt with it, we got past it, we did a few other things.

I'll hold you to it.

Yeah, well...still. You handled it better than I thought you would, and I appreciate that. And you gotta admit, those 'other things' we did were kind of worth it, don't you agree?

I don't think that was arguing you heard from me.

Oh, I heard *something* all right. You get bossy in bed, you know that? Lucky for you I like a girl that knows what she wants.

some *thing*? singular? Babe, there was some plural in there for sure.

From: [identity profile]'re also too literal, I mention that? You know if I wasn't going out with you, and therefore finding that endearing by default? I'd be *really* annoyed right now.

You love it come on! The bickering gets you off. It's not like you're the only one annoyed, maybe I shouldn't have said singular, would *multiple* have been better for your ego?

Bickering does *not* get me off! You're a brat and a tease *and* a nerd...and if you weren't also cute, you would *really* get under my skin. Even if you're already under my skin, but trust me, it's in a really good way...and did I ever mention I *really* liked that redheaded hooker disguise in your icon? 'Cause you wore that one *very* well.

I bet you are all flustered now right? Tell me that doesn't get to you a bit more than 'under the skin' I might be a *tease* but you can only be a *tease* if you know what to say. hmmm... you don't say.
