The water has long since gone cold by the time the pair finish 'showering'. Thankfully their fooling around went uninterrupted by Mallory who, true to her word, seems to have locked herself in her room for the night. And locked every other door in the house aside from the guest bedroom, the bathroom, and the exits.
#Mallory'sHomestead – August 22, 2019
Jessica gave the bathroom's medicine cabinet a quick once-over to see if there was anything worth taking (As one does) before they returned to the guest room, but seemed to come to the conclusion that nothing in there was worth the trouble. Or- more likely judging by the confused look on her face as she shuffled the many pill bottles around- she simply had no idea what any of the medicine in the bathroom was for. Her dirty clothes are
bundled up in a messy ball and dropped on the floor beside their things as she digs through her bag for new clothes, turquoise towel wrapped around her. Nudity isn't something she tends to worry about usually, but given the possibility of giving an old woman a heart-attack, a towel seemed like only a minor inconvenience. Despite being waterlogged and exhausted, she wears a cocky grin across her face. The news is still droning on,
volume low, as the anchors pick apart every little detail that has come out about the Collector's defeat.
Yan Sun has shoved her dirty clothes back into her bag, although she kept the t-shirt since she only just swapped into it today, putting it on. She's currently sitting in her towel on the bed, slipping into a pair of fresh panties. Without a dryer her hair is still damp, although she's combed it into shape, letting it airdry a bit as she watches Jessica scavenge for new clothes. The news is little more than background noise to her right now,
too tired and too relaxed to focus on it. Her fingertips are shriveled and her skin is dry from too much time spent in the tower, but that's the price one pays, isn't it? And hey, she got clean! Eventually. Even found some time to shave. She brings one hand up to her ear, trying to use her pinky to get rid of the water stuck there as her eyebrows furrow in concentration.
Jessica pulls one of her many bog-standard white tanktops free from her bag. A pair of grey panties join them and she's set on her sleepwear. After days of mostly living in clothes to fight off the cold it'll be nice to spend a night in the bare minimum. She drops the towel and quietly slips into her clothes before approaching Yan Sun at the edge of the bed, big grin still on her face. "You are happy now, kitty cat?" she asks, "You got
your shower. You get your bed..." She lifts her right knee up onto the edge of the bed, bouncing her weight against it for a moment. It's like a big, fluffy cloud. A definite upgrade from the Respite despite the unfortunate flower-print comforter. "...So now you will stop bitching for the rest of the trip, yes?"
Yan Sun tugs the towel free from below her, tossing it onto the chair to dry. It's... good enough. Ish. She's quick to drop back into bed, bouncing a little as she scoots further up it with a big grin. "Yessss...." she confirms as she lets herself fall back against the soft mattress, arms stretching up above her head as her grin widens and a small yawn slips out. She'd forgotten what it was even like to have a good bed. Jessica's addition
causes her eyebrows to furrow and she sends a light, playful kick her way. "I don't bitch!" she protests indignantly.
Jessica lazily swats aside the kick that comes her way. "You only bitch!" she fires back in disbelief. "Is too cold! I don't know how to drive! The truck is too uncomfortable for sleeping!" she lists off in a stupid voice, head lulling from one side to the other each time she rattles off another of Yan Sun's complaints, "What if animals try to eat us? Is it dangerous? I am not wanting to shoot
the gun! The tent is sucks! Blahblahblah..." She trails off, giving a small raise of her brow as if she's just proven her point. "You bitch!"
Yan Sun scowls at Jessica, although she struggles to keep from cracking up as she offers her unflattering impression of Yan Sun. "Screw you!" she exclaims, lifting a leg and pushing a foot against Jessica's face. "I've never been camping before!" she says defensively, a bit of laughter slipping out. "This isn't even a park or anything, this planet is wild! I think I'm doing pretty okay!"
Jessica slips in a quick, smug, "I am pretty sure that I just did." in response to Yan Sun's initial exclamation. She tries to tilt her head to the side as her face is shoved by a rogue foot which wipes her smug grin away and causes her to grip Yan Sun by the ankle and give her a little tug. "I am going to bite you if you try to kick me again!" she threatens with a quick gnash of her teeth beside Yan Sun's foot. "I will show to you
Yan Sun gains a big grin as Jessica grabs her ankle, a muffled giggle sounding through sealed lips in response to the threats and the scowl. She reaches up to lazily tug at Jessica's tanktop, trying to pull her down. "No more kicks!" she promises. "Just come lie down. It's sooo comfy." she informs, elbows digging into the mattress as she stretches again, scratching the damp hair at the back of her head.
Jessica gives a skeptical roll of her eyes as Yan Sun offers a truce, though the smile remains. The tugging at her shirt jostles her a few times before she gives in and allows herself to drop into the bed. "I am thinking that maybe is better for me out in the truck." she teases in a grumble as she scoots towards Yan Sun.
Yan Sun looks skeptical. "If you wanna sleep in the truck, go right ahead..." she says, eyebrows rising after she rolls over to her side to look at Jessica. "I'll get this biiig, comfy bed all too myself..." she adds, arms rising to press palms against the headboard just to prove her point as she shoots Jessica a grin. "No one complaining about my 'bitching'..."
Jessica settles onto her side, elbow against the bed and hand propping up her head as she watches Yan Sun's theatrics with an unamused look on her face. She remains silent for a few more moments once Yan Sun has finished speaking, brow furrowed in thought. "Maybe I will just leave you here." she decides to herself.
Yan Sun brings her right hand to Jessica's side, slipping beneath her t-shirt, thumb brushing gently back and forth against her skin. Her fingertips are still kind of pruney from the shower, the texture different that normal. "You'd miss me." she says confidently, flashing a small, smug smile and leaning in to plant a soft peck on Jessica's lips, the smile growing wider as she pulls back.
Jessica gives a small lift of her brow at the assertion, as if calling it into question. But, try as she might, a tired smirk tugs at the edge of her lips when Yan Sun leans in to kiss her. "I would miss this-..." she says, reaching out to give Yan Sun a quick slap on the ass but her positioning and the lazy attempt results in it mostly catching hip. "...The rest of you?" she shrugs against the bed, poking at Yan Sun's leg with her foot
Yan Sun snickers in response to the slap, not seeming all that convinced by Jessica's teasing. She props herself up a bit with her elbow and leans in for another kiss, longer but just as soft, before pulling back and scooting up to the head of the bed, starting to get rid of the infernal floral comforter, settling for clearing her side before slipping under the covers, eager to hide away in what seems like the most comfortable bed she's had
in months. Between the early morning, a whole day spent driving and a vigorous... shower, she's actually kind of exhausted, head dropping against the pillow with a content sigh as her attention returns to Jessica. "You ready to admit this was a good idea yet...?"
Jessica returns the kiss with an exaggerated smack of her lips, looking as though she's in no hurry to move. So she remains in place, just watching Yan Sun clamor beneath the covers. She got a bit of sleep throughout the day in the truck but, between the effect of the previous night's heavy drinking and their time in the shower, she looks spent. And the bed is quite inviting. So it's not long before she finds herself joining Yan Sun
under the blankets. There's something special about climbing into a made bed. Cold sheets against bare skin. Everything smooth. No lumps or bunched up fabric. Jessica has never been the sort to make her bed. Just always seemed like a waste of time. Of course her beds were never quite this soft, either. She scoots up close to Yan Sun, slipping her right hand beneath her pillow and her left coming to rest on Yan Sun's hip. "There
Yan Sun lets out a quiet snort, shaking her head to herself as she too moves closer under the soft, cozy embrace of the covers, right hand finding it's way back to Jessica's side as she studies her. "Come ooon... she's awesome, be nice." she says through an amused smirk, although her eyebrows furrow slightly as she lifts her left forearm between them, studying it briefly with exaggerated thoughtfulness as the cybernetics light up. "...this
Jessica studies Yan Sun's arm as it bathes the room in a blue glow. The thought causes her to shoot a lazy glance towards the door. She locked it, but that old bag could surely unlock it if she wanted in. Not that it mattered too much. She could almost certainly turn Mallory into dust with one good swing. "Mmm. Where do you think I am taking you?" she teases, smirk tugging at her lips once more.
