She'd been spending a lot of time at the waterfall lately. The rave was over, but Rachel could still feel the tremble of the bass under her skin. The hangover was past, but she could still feel the pain of guilt and confusion. She had just wanted to have some fun, let loose for a night and now she was starting to think that she'd ruined one of her closest friendships here on the island.

Not to mention opened herself up to an entirely new avenue of sexuality she'd never considered before.

But at the heart, she thought the sexuality thing wasn't even the important part. Well it was important, but she knew eventually it would take care of itself. She'd just never thought of it before, was all and was trying not to think about it now. The really important part was that she was pretty sure her best friend would never speak to her again and that hurt Rachel more than she wanted to admit. So Gabrielle maybe had a little crush on her? So had Alistaire Stuart, and they'd managed to stay friends, but lately Gabby wasn't even talking to her and that made things worse. She couldn't repair, or work on, or even talk about their friendship if Gabby wouldn't even see her.

Standing on the edge of the cliff and looking down, Rachel wondered if things really had been simpler back home. Kill Gabriel. Kill the bastards that had killed her family. Sleep with Korvus, who loved her and she... she loved him. At least she was pretty sure she did. The longer she was here, the more she started to doubt that. And did that mean she'd taken advantage of him? Had she taken advantage of Gabby? She didn't want to think that she had. she didn't want to admit that her loneliness combined with the alcohol and drugs and... she'd just gone too far.

But if she couldn't talk to Gabby... she couldn't work it out. God, was there anything Rachel could do right? She looked down at the rolling water and debated with herself before deciding that ultimately, she couldn't make a decision today. If Gabby wouldn't talk to her, she couldn't make amends. And she wasn't home so she couldn't sort things out with Korvus. All she had was today and a deep pool of water just begging to be dove into. Which is what she did, diving with almost perfect accuracy to the center of the pool, trusting that it was deep enough for the dive.

It was, but as Rachel surfaced she realized that diving from such heights had it's disadvantages. Like stripping the tops of bikinis off one's body. Looking around, Rachel tried to see where her top had gone, or if she was going to end up rushing home with her hands as her only modesty.

Aidan had met some interesting people at the waterfall, Effy and Coraline and a few others as well. He didn't go there to meet people, necessarily but he always kept in mind that something like that might happen. It was a good place to clear his head and despite he told others, he knew that he needed some time to think clearly. Adjusting to his humanity wasn't automatic and as well as he'd like to think he was handling it he knew that there were some... bumps along the way so far.

He might have been enjoying some aspects of his humanity just a bit too much and even though he was conscious of replacing one addiction for another it still seemed as if he was in danger of doing that. Aidan was finding that arousal and more specifically, sex, without the desire to feed and kill was entirely too enjoyable.

So Aidan thought if he could get some time to himself to wrap his head around that and the exact nature of his feelings for Martha, then maybe he could catch things before they got to far. Any thoughts of that were out the window though once he got to the waterfall and there was a gorgeous, topless redhead in the water.

"You realize that this isn't exactly a private place to swim, right?" Aidan called out. "Or did the rave confuse you on the proper dress code for this area."

"That would be me," he said, holding back a grin. She was obviously rather embarrassed about the loss of her top, so he'd let her off light for the moment. At least until they found her top.

"And no, I didn't. I assume this wasn't a voluntary removal then, despite our talk from the other night? You're blushing so much you're going to raise the temperature of the water a few degrees," he said as he scanned the water. The blush did look good on her though.

"Not yet," he said, shaking his head and ignoring the other comments for her sake. She was embarrassed enough he didn't need to bring to the forefront just how confusing she was being as a result.

"If we don't find it soon, you can have my shirt," he reassured her, pulling it off and setting it aside just in case they would need it. It would be more amusing if they didn't find it, but only for him.

Aidan noticed her checking him out, the learned habit of noticing everything one that didn't just go away when his humanity restored. Besides, he didn't mind being checked out.

"I think I see it," he said, noticing a scrap of fabric floating up against one of the rocks. Slipping into the water, he headed over to wear it was. Sure enough, it was either her top or someone wasn't fortunate enough to find theirs after losing it. Or they didn't care.

"So are you in the medical profession as well?" he asked, moving over toward her as he held up the top. "Or is there another reason you're studying my anatomy."

Oh yes, he remembered that discussion from that night.

"Actually I didn't get that good of a look," he confessed. It seemed a shame, too, since what he had seen was rather nice, but he'd rather any exposure he was... exposed to was of the willing nature.

"Maybe I've been shy the entire time," he said, handing the top back to her. "Although if I recall from our conversation, I was the one more ready to be daring."

"It might be," Aidan said, locking eyes with Rachel.

Vampires in his world had no magical stare that could mesmerize others, their telepathy was more complicated than that and infinitely more difficult for most, but they did have the benefit of experience. If eyes were the window of the soul, most vampires were old enough to show you whatever scene they wanted. Darkness, mystery, and a depth that didn't belong on someone who looked as young as he did flickered across his eyes as he held Rachel's gaze.

Without bobbing or weaving, he reached down and slipped his trunks off, letting them float up to the surface of the water before he pushed backward, slowly drifting away from her.

"You're still not showing anything and your suit is in easy reach," he reminded her, even as he was grinning at her. He was surprised by it too, although pleasantly so. From what he recalled, Rachel had a very fit body and her shoulders at least appeared to bear that out.

"The real test is to see if you'll go for another jump in off the waterfall."

"Not a problem."

Swimming over to the side, Aidan pulled himself out of the water and climbed up to the falls. He wasn't ashamed about being naked at all, and to be honest he was far more concerned about not scraping anything particularly sensitive as he made his way up to the top of the falls than he was about what he was exposing to her.

Once up to the top, he paused for a moment to make sure the way below was clear before running to the edge and diving into the water. It was an odd feeling, the wind rushing all over his body with the beads of water zipping across his skin just before he hit the water. He went smoothly in, kicking toward Rachel and staying under long enough just to enjoy the slightly blurred view under water before popping up not too far behind her.

Aidan watched intently as she got out of the water. The interesting tattoos that were on her face were also along her back as well, although they seemed a slightly different style. She looked amazing though, long and lithe limbs that were obviously used to exercise with the right amount of curves in the right places.

The dive was graceful and fluid and he appreciated her body almost as a work of art, as well as something that was just, pure and simple, sexy. He watched her form flicker under the water until she came up through the surface.

"I know it sounds like a line," he said. "But you have... one of the most attractive bodies I've ever seen."

"It was... very difficult to remain a gentleman when you first came up out of the water," Aidan admitted. It was kind of endearing how she took the compliment, and he was glad that she didn't protest it or have an ego about how good she looked.

"And I promise you can look as much or as little as you want and I don't even give you a hard time about it," he said, moving a little bit closer to her.

Well, the closer proximity was definitely welcome, giving him a more clear view of her body. It was forward of her to do while acknowledging that she was going to look him over. She seemed to be getting more and more daring, which was more and more exciting for him.

"As long as you don't mind me doing the same," he said, circling her just a bit, his foot casually brushing up the outside of her calf.

The temptation to touch her was strong, but he didn't just yet. She didn't seem quite ready, as if she was psyching herself up for something still. He moved his arms lazily though he eater though, running them close by her, not quite touching.

"No," he said with a shake of his head. "Except to make sure you got home okay. It would seem like taking advantage. But tell me," he said, moving forward so that their chests brushed against each other. "If I kissed you while you were sober, would you kiss back?"

Her touch against his chest was almost electric, her hand warm against his cool skin and he could swear he could almost feel her pulse pounding through her palm.

"Absolutley," he said before wrapping an arm around her waist and kissing her hard.

It was almost like a damn broke, and suddenly his body was flush with desire. His kiss was heated and passionatr and promised much, much more to come.
