Her sleep was, unsurprisingly, filled with nightmares and anxiety. The kinds of dreams she hadn't had in months where family accused her of letting them die and scores of enemies waited in the shadows to tear what little happiness she had apart. She ran through cemeteries and camps and ruined school halls and all the while she knew there was no hope, there was nothing she could do. She would awake, disoriented, crying and afraid and the only thing that kept her grounded was the feel of warm arms around her.

Aidan didn't leave. Every time she woke up he was there, even if she was pretty sure he was asleep, he was still there. And not once did she wake up thinking he was anyone else. It surprised the hell out of her, she thought at least once she'd think she was back on the Jammer with Korvus, but nope, she always knew it was him. She was glad for it, too even if she didn't want to think about why that was too much.

Eventually, she gave up on sleep, lying awake and watching the sun spill through the windows. At some point she'd need to get up, take a shower, eat something, but right now she just snuggled back against the warm body in her bed, glad it was there. Glad he was there.

Aidan slept better than Rachel, although it wasn't entirely peaceful. She continually tossed and turned, but he didn't mind. Each time he was forced closer to consciousness, he pressed closer and made sure that an arm was wrapped around her, holding her close and just being a solid presence there.

Sometimes, when he didn't think it would wake her, he'd whisper reassurances to her. No false platitudes or Hallmark sentiments, just letting her know that someone was there for her and cared for her. Reminding her that it wasn't her fault and that she shouldn't blame herself.

When he finally woke up, the sun had already risen and Rachel was awake next to him. He half thought she might have been gone when he woke up, remembering how the last time they had spent the night together she wasn't comfortable waking up with him next to her. Entirely different circumstances, but still he had wondered.

"How you feeling?" he asked, snuggling up closer to her and breathing deeply.

"Anything you have to get up for at the moment?" he asked. He had no pressing need or desire to move just at the moment. Maybe she could just lay here and relax for a bit in his arms and feel at least a little refreshed.

"Because I don't have anything really pressing."

Aidan reached up to run his fingers through her hair as soothingly as he could, just letting her rest against him. He liked this feeling of usefulness, of being needed even in a small capacity like this. It made him feel more human, because no one needed a monster for comfort.

"I just want you to know, consider yourself having a... standing invitation for this, okay? You ever don't want to be alone just let me know and I'll be here. No questions. I'll even leave my window open for you if you want."

"If that's what you need, we'll cross that bridge when we get there," he said with a chuckle, doing his best to take the joke in the nature that it was given. He'd leave the ball in her court in that matter, it wasn't something that either of them probably needed to discuss right now.

"But anything you need, let me know. Losing family hurts. A lot."

"You can't forget," he said, continuing to run his fingers through her hair. He had felt her tense up when he mentioned losing her family, but Aidan did know that not talking about it wasn't the way to get through it.

"The more you try and forget, the more guilty you feel about it. So you grieve, and you move on with your life. And sometimes when you remember it hits you so hard you just drop to your knees and weep. The next time you go longer and you don't cry so hard. Eventually, the memories don't cripple you anymore. The good thing though, is that the good memories... the good memories never make you less happy."

The kiss surprised him, but he knew that it really shouldn't. It was a nice gesture to thank him for staying with her all night. To be honest, Aidan was glad to do it, happy to give what little comfort he could to someone who had been through so much.

"Anytime. I mean that, Rachel."

Aidan knew what she wanted when she kissed him again. If this had been under different circumstances, he wouldn't have given in. But they had been together before and were heading down that road again. This wasn't taking advantage of her, it was offering comfort. Maybe not the healthiest way or what was ultimately best for her, but in a way he could definitely give her something right now.

He pulled her close, kissing her back with patient need as he enjoyed the feel of her against him.

Aidan let out a low groan as she shifted the position of her body, moving closer and guiding his hand on her body. She felt good, soft skin and strong muscle with wonderful curves.

"I know," he said, kissing her more heatedly and passionately. As much as he was unsure before, his body was warming up to the notion. The fact that he had spent the night pressed against her, wearing nothing but his boxers, certainly helped put him in the mood.

"I wanted you during the picnic."

He liked how he could make her react, especially knowing how reluctant she usually was to do something like this. The fact that he could make her sent a thrill through him. Aidan wanted her badly.

"Waiting was the right thing to do," he said, biting along her neck and shoulders as his hands moved along her back to undo her bra.

"And it's not too late to tie you up. But your touch... god it makes me hard."

"Have I ever told you how hot you are?" he asked, sliding a hand up and squeezing her breasts. He loved how athletic she was, how her body felt against his. Aidan had thought of this since that night, about what it would be like to be with her again, especially when they were both more comfortable with what they were doing.

"Or how much I've thought about this? Answer to both questions is... a lot."

Any other time, the words "don't leave me again" might have scared him. That sounded a lot like a request for something more than just giving comfort when she was upset. Normally, it would have made him step back and assess the situation but in the heat of the moment, with her hands inside of her boxers and her body pressed against him he couldn't bring himself to care that much just at the moment.

"I'll stay as long you want," he promised, fingers pinching her nipples as he spoke, remembering all the little things that she liked. Speaking of which, one hand slid around and up her back to grip her hair, gently pulling on it to tip her head up to give him better access to her neck.

For a moment there was a catch in his movements as she began stroking him, temporarily distracted by how good it felt. He shifted a bit so that she could get his boxers off and remove any further interference between their bodies.

"I need you," he said between kisses, as if that wasn't already obvious to her. Aidan wanted her to hear it though, so that she knew this wasn't just some offer to help her feel better or that it was even remotely one sided on her end.

That request was one that he was more than happy to comply with. She already had him badly wanting her and on the edge of taking what he wanted but with her saying it like that as she stroked him, it was impossible to resist.

Turning quickly, he rolled her onto her back and pinned her hands loosely above her head. Aidan kissed her hard and ground his hips down against her in a demonstration of just how bad he wanted her.
