He chuckles, low in his throat, kisses her forehead, warm breath whispering into her skin when he speaks, "Yes, that is all you agreed to."

Looks down into her large, innocent eyes, "But I don't think you realize how much you," his voice with husky timbre, "naked," and pause, "immersed in water," he smiles at the image in his own mind, "You are already irresistible. I don't trust my will to hold with more than just imagined image."

The left corner of Dev's mouth quirks slightly upwards as he listens to Johannes, "& that is one of the reasons I am not a gentleman." he sighs, "Well, I suppose you could always make yourself a tea of some sort, no?" he looks at Jo a bit askance, eyebrows raised.

Joe's words are enticing. Who is to say she'd want him to stop. Her lips are so close to Johannes' upturned mouth that it takes very little effort for the emboldened and tipsy Parker to rise to the tips of her toes and bridge the difference. Her lips, soft and smooth and delicious find Joe's. Devs words cause her to break the kiss she initiated after a too brief moment. "would you both be so kind as not to disparage the other, at least in my presence." she asks very quietly, her words difficult to hear more than a foot or so away from her. Unless either man has moved away from her, she is still touching both of them. Her chest pressed up against Joe, her side against Dev.

Dev chuckles, "Ah, but my d...ahem, let's just say that teasing of this sort between's often seen as something done between friends." he glances at Jo, raises an eyebrow, "We are friends aren't we?" he turns back to Parker, "However, if that is your wish, I will make an attempt to abide by it." As he looks at her his eyes soften further, now at her side, his hand slides down her back, starting below Jo's and finds its way to her leathers, thumb hooking just inside the band, fingers resting lightly just below. "So...we were talking about getting cleaned up, weren't we?"

He looks back at Dev, his look darn close to sardonic, "I suppose we could be classified as friends."

Then his eyes are back on Parker, "I was talking about Kitty getting cleaned up," A thumb caressing her jawline. "And saying that while we are invited to that portion of the evening..." and he smiles at Parker, "it would be a... torture... to see and not touch." Her voice turning dry, "To touch and not..." He clears his throat, kissing her nose.

He smiles, love and playfulness clear in his eyes, then with a sotto whisper, "Besides, once you slip into the hot bath that I have every confidence that Dot has ready for you, I have a sinking suspicion that all the fatigue excitement and anxiety has held off will hit you." The smiles grows teasing, "Of course, picturing you heavy-lidded and sleepy in a warm scented bath..."

Dev's roaming hands find Parker's skin radiating heat, even through her clothes. She represses a small whimper of a need she did not know she possessed.

"I... I don't... want you to leave..." she whispers back to Johannes although the words are meant for both men. She wants to explore the feelings and desires welling up within her... made less inhibited by the alcohol she reaches one hand around Dev and the other around Johannes, not wanting to let either of them go, no matter how much she needed to bathe.

"Well, I don't want to go either...but I certainly can't carry both of you upstairs." Dev's eyes are laughing. "So one of you will have to find his own way." Dev would pick up Parker at this point, but I seem to remember they're still holding onto each other.

His smile is tinged with pain as his body stiffens, "Ahhh, sweetling. Believe me, I do not want to leave." He takes the hand that went around him and brings it to his lips, the movement putting a little space between him and Parker, making his body's reaction to her slightly less obvious.

His fingers intertwine with hers, "But..." eyes bright but the tension and fatigue clear in the lines of his face.

"But?" she asks Johannes, not answering Dev for a moment, though her arm stays around him.

"But, Kitty, I love you."

He looks, down but not away, "And, even if it makes no sense, I want better for you than exhausted pawing." His thumb begins to massage the flat of her palm, "I want to be able to kindle what you are feeling into a fire..." Honest pain in his voice, "And I am in no condition to do so at the moment... and you deserve no less than the best."

Dev stops to take in the affect of Jo's words on Parker. He knows what he wants to do, tired or not, but Jo's words do make some sense and have some impact. He looks to see how Parker takes things,

sense motive: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15

especially since she had made it clear she didn't want to play favorites.

Parker is somewhat disappointed. Mixed feelings, rejection, desire, a fear that perhaps Joe does not want to be with her unless he is at full strenght because what if she does loose control and turn into a creature like her mother. Confusion at Joe's lack of directness. Feeling that it's her,that she isn't good enough.

She lets go of Dev and slowly reclaimes her hand from Joe, pulling away from both men.

She begins to gather up her clothing and hairpins.

"Right. Well, goodnight then, both of you." She says with a hoarsely emotional voice.

"Right. Good night Kitten." Dev retrieves his hand as Parker turns, he bows his head, eyes closed at least temporarily in thought. His eyes open and he picks up his mug of ale, takes a good swig as he contemplates.

Sense Motive 1d20 + 10 - 2 ⇒ (20) + 10 - 2 = 28 (-2 fatigue)

When Parker's hands are full, Joe walks over to her, leans down and kisses her softly but with tempered passion. Leaning close, he whispers.

Parker/DC 15 Perception:
"It's not you that isn't good enough, Kitten, it's me."

And then he pulls a small vial with a almost glowing pink liquid. "For your bath and for only pleasant dreams." He kisses her forehead, "No nightmares of the things adventuress must do."

"And I will dream of you." He smiles, "As I have since we met."

If it is used in bathwater the tincture smells of sweet roses and gives a lucid dream polypurpose panacea effect.

Lucid Dream Panacea:
If you take this panacea within 1 hour of going to sleep, you have a lucid dream that is under your control and lasts for an hour.

Parker still looks slightly hurt. She accepts the kiss and the vial from Joe, but does not say anything to him. She isnt bold enough to kiss Dev goodnight right now, she feels raw and vulnerable. She looks at both men in silence, before she heads upstairs. Anyone paying attention would note the unfinished bottle of wine is amongst the things Parker has picked up and is taking with her upstairs.

Johannes watches Parker take her leave, stock still until she is out of site, then he leaves the townhouse.

Dev watches them both go, finishes his mug and cleans up the remains of their sandwich fixings. He pours himself another mug, then heads upstairs as well.

Perception: 1d20 + 8 - 2 ⇒ (18) + 8 - 2 = 24
or is it -2fatigue, -2sickened? In which case 22

Bluff 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19 +2 if attracted.

As Parker walks away from the two men...

Sense motive DC 19 or 21:

Parker hides the tears that are beginning to form, as she walks away from both men.

private note to self on Parker's emotional state:

She first time she's ever invited anyone upstairs, and she gets rejected, essentially patted on the head, discounted, and is basically sent to bed. She has never invited anyone to bathe with her before. She has never done anything so bold in her life, and is turned down for it. And the person who rejected her couldn't even give her a straight no. Instead he pulled the, I'm tired and have a headache card. But then turns it around to make her feel like there's something wrong with her for wanting to spend the night together because he's super affectionate and loving all the while turning her down. Parker does not understand why he would send her away. It's not like there had to be anything going on. Parker would have been happy just to cuddle and sleep together.

And this isn't the first time Joe has rejected Parker. There was the time at his house, when he pretty much went to bed and ignored Parker... after which she went to the river with Dev.

How does this make Parker feel? For starters, rejected and unwanted and unloved. Filled with doubt.... maybe she cares about Johannes more than he cares about her. She's certainly come to the conclusion that apparently it's ok the discount what she wants or needs, all in the name of, for her own good and a peck on the forehead makes it ok. Sleep is more important than she is. She will not he so bold again as to think it's ok to ask someone she loves for attention.

Perception: 1d20+8-2

You hear Parker in one if the bathrooms, the sound of running water. The door is locked, if you try the handle. A little bit of steam comes out from under the door.

Sense Motive dc21(not counting condition modifiers): 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (5) + 6 = 11 nope, not even close

Dev looks around to make sure no one is obviously observing and then picks the lock as silently as possible.
Perception (at -4?): 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (18) + 8 - 4 = 22
Disable Device(at -4?): 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (16) + 8 - 4 = 20
Stealth (at -4?): 1d20 + 12 - 4 ⇒ (6) + 12 - 4 = 14

He pauses, listening at the door.
Perception (at -4?): 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (8) + 8 - 4 = 12

should we do away with contested roll condition modifiers since I believe Dev & Parker are in the same condition? fatigued:-2, sickened/drunk:-2

Pesky modifiers.... forgot about them. Sorry.
Perception. 1d20 + 1 - 4 ⇒ (14) + 1 - 4 = 11

Parker does not hear or notice Dev. She is immersed in steamy water, a bubble bath hiding her figure as she shampoos her long hair.

Dev taps on the door lightly. Possibly more just so he can truthfully say he did then to actually be heard, but he does, nonetheless. He also calls out softly, "Kitt'n?".

"is a mob approaching?" Parker asks quietly, as she rinses out her hair. She does not turn to face Dev.

Dev chooses to take that as an invitation and enters the room, softly closing the door behind him. He equally softly crosses the room, though this is more of a natural way of moving for him and not because he is trying to be overly stealthy. "No, not that I'm aware of. I just..wanted to be with you. & wanted to make sure you knew that if ever you needed me, as long as dhampirily possible, I will be here." he grins changing from a serious to slightly more lighthearted tone, "& I was hoping I could.." he coughs "..wash your back. Not to mention, we didn't get a chance to finish your massage. I hate to leave things half-finished." She can probably hear the smile in his voice, he is happy just to be here, though also very eager & even more turned on now that he is in her presence.

Parker wrings the water out if her hair, twisting it into a bun on top of her head, which she secures with a couple of hairsticks. Her expression conflicted, she is glad Dev loves and wants her so much that he comes to check on her, that he's not afraid to take chances... but she's hurt from what Johannes did, and not sure she wishes to proceed this evening until she's figured out just what she means to the other man.

"could I take a rain check on the massage and the bath with you?" she asks demurely, "I... did give parameters for tonight's bath which are not being met, and I do not wish to break my word.

"You did." he sighs heavily, "very well. may I at least enjoy my ale and possible conversation with you then? I can offer the rather lame excuse of making sure you do not fall asleep and accidentally drown. Remember, I am here to protect you, after all." While he is talking he finds a footstool, sits on it and leans back against the wall. Taking another gulp of ale as he does so.
Sitting down, he does not actually see much of Parker besides what peaks over the side of the tub. A fact that makes him immediately regret that decision, but he's not about to admit it to anyone else at the moment. He's allowing her a little privacy, yeah, that's it.

"I would prefer privacy." she says quietly, as it takes nearly all of her willpower not to relent. "and I am almost done."

Dev's eyes close for a second in a slightly longer blink. "As you wish." he rises then pauses, "can I be so audacious as to request a single last kiss good night?"

I think you just did. she smiles at him, her expression full of love.

More shyly you don't have to ask for a kiss, Dev. You never …have to ask."

Dev blinks. It takes a moment to comprehend her meaning. Then he smiles takes a few steps to close the distance and kneels down next to the bath, this time taking care to keep his hands from going against Parkers words, he leans over the tub, his head craning somewhat to try to make Parker's reciprocation as comfortable as possible. His eyes, on the other hand, remain very appreciative of whatever they are allowed to see. He whispers to her as he leans in, "Kitten. When you are ready, I will be here. That I promise you."

Parker reaches up, guides Devs face to hers. Her lips find his. They are warm and moist. Most of her body is hidden by the suds. But the suggestion is there, of wet skin and lovely dangerous curves.

"thank you." she whispers.

...and he appreciates every single millimeter, visible or not. "No, thank you, Kitty. You seem to have no concept of how unbelievably gorgeous you are." He straightens up, "I will look forward to seeing you in the morning. Good night, may your dreams be as peaceful and restful or joyful as Jo thinks they should be." He stops at the door, bows gracefully, exits and relocks the door from the other side.

disable device: 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (2) + 8 - 4 = 6 or not
disable device: 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (6) + 8 - 4 = 10 maybe
disable device: 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (3) + 8 - 4 = 7 nope
disable device: 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (20) + 8 - 4 = 24 finally +10 for nat 20

after fumbling with the lock for almost half-a-minute, he finally gets it to click into place. Dev sighs, shaking his head, then heads off to stow his gear and get cleaned up.

A few minutes later, Parker, clean and dry, with a towel around her hair, wearing a cami and bloomers, emerges from the bathing chamber and heads to her room.

Some hours later, in the middle of the night

Perception DC 10 + distance:

Parker cries out in her sleep, in throws of a nightmare.

Perception: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (2) + 8 = 10
to hear her heading to her room. He's apparently got some water running.
Perception: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (13) + 8 = 21
& Dev has very shortly "invaded" Parker's room.

Sense Motive:[dice]1d20+6[/b]
"D'na worry Kitty luv, I'm here." Dev slips into Parker's bed, trying not to disturb her other than to curl up against her and to hold her protectively. He continues to whisper into her hair. [smaller]"It's only a dream, luv. Everything will be all right in the morning." Dev snuggles next to her and kisses her neck, soft and long.

Parker, tossing and turning, is trying to fight off something in her sleep. Blankets are tangled, she's wearing bloomers and a cami, her hair is in a loose braid.

1d20 + 1 - 10 ⇒ (13) + 1 - 10 = 4 perception to wake up.

Parker does not wake, the touch making her stir further, crying out again, flailing about.

grapple check one: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (19) + 6 = 25
grapple check two: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (15) + 6 = 21

Dev captures her arms, pinning them against her body. He does realize he is using his strength and body wait to overpower her, but he doesn't want her to accidentally hurt herself...or him either for that matter.

He does try to continue to whisper soothingly into her ear,
"Everything's all right Kitty. I'm here. I'll protect you. The bad creatures are all gone now. They're running away. Shhh, settle down now. It's time to rest. Everything's okay." He continues to try to nuzzle her, kissing her neck, and uses his one free hand to stroke her, hoping to help calm her down.

The grapple wakes her up, before she is fully conscious she squeaks, terrified for a brief split second. "Dev?" a small weak terrified voice. "Dev!" She tries to get loose from his grip, so she can throw her arms around him, holding him tightly.

As soon as he realizes she is up (& does not have claws drawn) he releases her arms, but still embraces her tightly trying to comfort her.

She starts babbling about the skin changer, and the dream she had about him hunting her, and no matter how far she ran, she could never get away, and the only place to hide was the closet of skins. There are tears in her eyes, she clings to Dev.

He continues to hold her. Allowing her to take all the time she needs. He murmurs against her almost inaudibly, "It was just a dream, Kitten, he's already dead, he can't hurt you any more. I'm here, love. I'll protect you." He holds her comfortingly and protectively and gazes lovingly into her face and wipes away any tears that make their way past her lids.

"it was so real." she says weakly. Staying in the safety of his arms.

"I know, Kitten, I know, but it really was only a dream...and I'm here for you now, and whenever you want me." He draws back enough so he can look at her, his left hand caresses her right cheek, his thumb brushes lightly under her eye. He leans forward, kissing her forehead. "Whenever you want me," he repeats, "and for as long as you want me." he smiles lovingly into her face, relaxing back onto the bed. His arm stays protectively over her, tightly if she is still clinging, loosely if she now just needs his presence and begins to stroke her hair, just admiring every line of her face.

She pulls the tangled blanket up, so she's covered and warm, then puts her head on his chest, looking up at Dev for a moment before closing her eyes and giving in to his ministration. Her arms around him are firm, but not excessively tight.

Dev's right arm remains curled protectively and possessively across her back, holding her close as she remains tense, relaxing as she relaxes. Left hand continuing to softly stroke her hair, her shoulder, her arm, her back. He is absolutely thrilled to be in this position with her, which he finds a bit strange. Another time, another woman, he's sure he would be looking to sate the urges, the desires, the wants his body even now brings to his attention. This woman, she is different somehow, he wants what is best for her and at this moment he believes she needs to feel secure, to feel comfortable and so he is content just to be there for her, as long as she needs him to be. & he is happy for it.

As she begins to relax, his thoughts begin to drift somewhat. Their relationship...and with Jo. He glances down at her (technically up, but down from the direction of his head of course.) and he feels a wave of happiness pass through him. He's sure it will be complicated and will definitely have its ups and downs, but he is looking forward to it. He listens to her breathing, luxuriating just in the feel of her against him.

It takes a while for her to relax fully, but before long her breathing as steadies and she is once again asleep. She has not asked him to stay but neither did she tell him to go. In her sleep she continues to rest partially on him, her light body fitting against his perfectly, almost like she is made for him. The blanket keeping her warm even as his body absorbes heat from her. As she moves in her sleep, it is never away from him, but rather one of her slender legs finds its way across his legs, her arm across his waist, her head moves to the comfy soft spot just under his shoulder and right next to his chest. She stays that way until/if Dev moves her.

At some point, morning comes and Parker stirs, waking slowly.

Dev's eyes open as Parker stirs, "Good morning, Kitty luv. Rest well?" He cranes up slightly to kiss her on the top of her head, his left hand subconsciously begins to caress her again.

I... almost thought you were a dream. she says sleepily. Parker is not a morning person.

Dev smiles, his left hand continues to stroke her hair and skin, "Sorry Kitten, not me, but I can assure you, you most definitely fit that description. A dream, a vision and I'm so glad you've decided to share at least a portion of it with me."
Parker may not be a morning person. Devraj on the other hand, is used to being forced to move and work and forage for himself if he wants to eat at all...but now, all he wants is to be close to his living dream.
He suddenly begins to wonder how this has happened. He can't remember caring this much for anyone before. He remembers being told things never last forever, a little bit of tension begins to creep into his body.

At his words she blushes. She pulls herself up, over him, her head hovering over his, her lips tantalizingly close, her hair, some of which has come loose from her braid, tickles his face. She does not notice his tension yet. She's too busy staring into his eyes. "they're really grey?" she laughs, the sound joyful. " all of a sudden seeing in shades of grey is much more appealing."
