Rachel had decided that she was just going to do it. She was going to officially ask Aidan to move in with her. After all, they'd been together for a long time, well, by her standards at least, Aidan might have had longer relationships but it wasn't fair as he was a couple of centuries old and the scales were different. And they practically lived together anyways, she couldn't really remember the last time she'd spent a night alone.

Well, except last night. But a stopover in the clinic didn't count.

Smoothing the skirt of her sundress down, she took a deep breath before entering the clinic with the bunch of flowers she'd picked up and a few books and magazines. You know, normal visiting the boyfriend in the hospital things. She tried to put everything else out of her head. She'd get to it, she knew, but she wanted to focus on her injured boyfriend for a little while before she emotionally went off the rails.

Did normal people have this much trouble trying to figure out their relationships? People who hadn't dated aliens, seen the loves of their lives killed by mutant-hunting robots. People who hadn't done and seen the things she'd done. Or was it just her particular quirk of inherited emotional issues and her own paranoia. Did she even have the right to ask him, because she knew she didn't want to get married and have kids, not here on the island, and was that even fair to him to go so far and just draw a line in the sand? Or was she just leaving herself and him an escape hatch if it gets to be too much?

Those were the thoughts she was trying not to dwell on as she walked over to the bed. "Hey, punching bag, how are you feeling today?"

Doctor's and nurses usually made exceptionally horrible patients and Aidan was no exception. He didn't want to be in observation any longer even though he realized he needed to be. All he wanted was to get out of the clinic, where he spent so much time working, and rest up somewhere else. The longer he stayed here the more he wanted to kill that stupid robot for putting him here.

Just was he was about to contemplate sneaking out though, a distraction arrived in the form of Rachel.

"I want to borrow one of your giant guns and go robot hunting."

Aidan smiled and kissed her back, already feeling quite a bit better now that she was here. No matter how bad he was, seeing Rachel made him considerably better. He was still sore as hell, but he was happier.

"Stir crazy," he told her with a sigh, not walking to discuss the homicidal robot that had put him here. "I'll be sore for a while but I'm still tired of being here."

"That's a better idea than you staying here with me. Once the doctor's know how serious you would be about making me take it easy they'd probably agree," he said. Aidan hated having to rely on someone else for anything, even if it was Rachel, but he knew he needed to let it happen. That wasn't a good instinct to give in to, not when it came to Rachel.

"Maybe we can search the clothing box for a naughty nurse uniform for you before we head back to your place."

"Well, before you had my attention, now you have my interest," Aidan said, doing his best to sit up in the bed without wincing. He was only mildly successful at that though so he probably hurt his case more than helped it. Maybe it would be best to take it easy for a few days before he tried anything too physical.

"What did you have in mind?"

"Who's moving in with their girlfriend?" Aidan asked. He couldn't think of any of Rachel's friends that would need any help moving. Besides, there were probably a lot of people on the island that could help someone move. As much as Aidan would have liked to help out, he wasn't in any shape to do it.

"I don't know if I could really help much but if it will put you in a skimpy outfit then I'll give it a shot. Is one of your friends moving in with someone?"

"Oh."

It was a really poor response to everything that she said, he knew that it was, but he felt like he had to say something to all of that. To be honest he had been hoping they would move in eventually but like with most things in their relationship he wanted it to be on her time table so that she wouldn't freak out. It was unfair, maybe, but he thought it was for the best.

What she said made sense though. Henry had been gone for a while now and Josh could take care of himself. Aidan loved Rachel, he was crazy about her, and he hated the nights when he didn't fall asleep next to her.

"I would... really like to be there too."

"Come here," he said, tugging at her hand so that she would get in bed with him. There wasn't a lot of room but neither of them were all that big and he could easily ignore any discomfort from his injuries just to enjoy being close to her. That would be better than any painkillers. Well, almost better than any painkillers. Also this way he could just hold her there until he had convinced her he really meant it.

"I absolutely mean it. We don't spend much time apart but when we do I hate it and it seems pointless. Why should I go through the displeasure of not being with the woman I love when we can move in together? Besides, there's a scary droid out there that's trying to kill someone that looks like me and I need by bad ass girlfriend to protect me."

"Well that's because you know how fragile I am," he said with a bit of a laugh, doing his best not to wince at how much laughing her. It would still be a few days before even little things like that weren't agonizing but if it helped lighten the mood he didn't mind a joke or two. Besides, she was here curled up with him so it couldn't be all that bad.

"And how badly did you freak out and in what way?"

"Well thank you for not blowing up my friend's robot. Apparently they're friends. And if Proxy does murder Starkiller, I become his new master. So that's fun."

Still, it felt nice to have someone so concerned about him. The fact that it was violently so made it all the better, it made him feel less like there was something wrong with him for wanting to react the same way. If it had hurt Rachel though, he would have destroyed the robot without hesitating.

"I promise to reward you as soon as I can for your good behavior."

"That's true, you're completely incapable of being gentle," he said, smirking at her. It was half teasing, half a challenge but he liked joking with Rachel. Out of all his relationships over the centuries, this one was the most healthy and the most fun. That's not to say it wasn't passionate and heated and wild at times too, because it was. But it was the fun and had the sense of being healthy for both of them that he loved the most.

"An utter bruiser."

"No, that's definitely my bad ass girlfriend being so aggressive she'd break me in my current state," he said, turning to bite at the offending finger. Not that he didn't really love it when Rachel was aggressive and he had to admit being a vampire had probably colored his idea of what was considered rough vs too rough.

Aidan deepened the kiss, humming happily at the feeling of her lips against his. Automatically his body flushed with heat and need as well as the sense of completeness he got from being with her. As cliche as it was, Rachel made him feel complete.

"Horrible? I don't know what you're talking about. And we're done with feeding, not biting."

"I've got everything here that I want," he told her, deepening the kiss. He was scared and excited by the near death experience, unable to stop from reveling in it and being terrified by it. It made him feel absolutely alive as well as appreciative of everything he had, namely Rachel. Rachel meant everything to him and he couldn't get enough of her.

"We can," he said, although he kissed her again, suddenly overwhelmed with the desire to kiss and touch and feel and just connect with her. Aidan always did best with a purpose and Rachel was his purpose. She was his reason for just about everything and he wanted her to know that, wanted to show her just how badly he needed her.

"What if I said this is definitely making me feel better?" he asked, leaning in to nibble at her neck. As grateful as he was for Rachel's concern and she was probably thinking far more level headed than he was, Aidan needed this, needed to feel close to her in every way he could. Even if all she did was kiss him he would take it.

"I bet you can be gentle enough if you want to."

"I guess you'll have to be gentle and quiet then," he said, biting down a bit harder. The point wasn't to get Rachel to actually give in (although that would be a nice bonus) but to rile her up and give her a hard time. She was giggling and laughing and generally not worried about him anymore, which is what he really wanted.

"Mmmmmm, trust me, I know just how true that is right now," he said, kissing her back, just as happy to have his lips on hers as he was to have them on her neck. Besides, he was very vulnerable and delicate right now so he might as well take advantage of that. She might make him pay for it later but he'd take his medicine when it was time.

"I thought I'd try to reason with it and be its buddy. Isn't that what we should do, find peaceful solutions to violent situations?" he asked, keeping a straight face for just a moment before grinning at her and kissing her lightly again. Aidan knew how useless it would be to argue anything with Proxy. He also knew Proxy wasn't much of a danger anymore.

"Kidding, if it tries to hurt me again, please shoot it with one of your giant guns."

"That's because you love me so much," he said, turning to kiss her softly as she frowned. He didn't want that from her, for her to be upset right now. Aidan just wanted her to feel relieved that he was safe and there was no permanent damage. If he allowed himself to think what might have happened... those were dark thoughts that he didn't want to visit. He wanted to be in the moment, thinking of Rachel and how happy she made him.

"Maybe we could get some sort of love seat," he said, smirking just a bit. He had noticed the change in subject and while he was fine with switching he wanted to let her know he absolutely knew what she was doing. He only wanted to tease her a bit though.

"I don't really have a lot though. Kind of force of habit, I guess. Maybe we can hunt down a few new things though? Stuff that's not necessarily yours or mine but can be ours?"

"Oh, knowing me, huh?" he asked, arching an eyebrow at her. As if he were entirely responsible for all the sexual advances in their relationship and it was such a hardship for her to give in to them on occasion. He was fairly certain that she gave just as good as she got.

"And yeah, we can see what it is that they're able to make. At this point they might like a challenge."

"That is not the sort of challenge I meant. You need to get your head out of the gutter," Aidan said with a laugh. He could see how it could be construed as that but he couldn't resist giving her a bit of grief about it. It was good to hear her laughing though.

"I meant the challenge of just making something new. That haven't had a lot to do lately."

"Alright, maybe I'll take some of the credit for that," Aidan said, kissing her temple. Rachel made a lot of hings attractive to him, one of them being the idea of living together. Aidan liked the idea of being domestic, he always had. But more than just the concept of it he wanted to live together with Rachel, to be that much closer to her.

"A library. I think we should add on a library."
