Faith woke up in a panic. Someone was holding her tightly and for a moment, she couldn't remember who. She tried to bolt out of the bed, but the arms holding her kept her where she was. Her eyes darted around the room, noticing the TV was on and quickly realized where she was. She felt a kiss being placed on her head and she remembered who was with her.
"It's okay, Faith," Buffy spoke softly, stroking the brunette's hair. "Did you have a nightmare?"
"Don't know," Faith answered, shaking her head. "I just wasn't aware of where I was, kinda freaked me out."
"You'll get used to it," Buffy said into Faith's hair.
"Used to what?"
Buffy laughed. "Me being here when you wake up."
Faith sat up to look at Buffy and grinned. "I think I can manage that," she said and pulled her in for a kiss.
The blonde turned away from Faith before the kiss could deepen and brought her lips to her forehead then holding her close.
"Faith, why did you want to travel?"
The young slayer sighed. "I thought we went through this. I don't like staying in one place for too long."
"Yeah, you mentioned that," Buffy said easily, "but why?"
Faith leaned back into Buffy, not really wanting to face her. "In the back of my mind, I always think there's someone behind me, trying to get me. You know, looking for a weakness, waiting to attack at just the right time."
Buffy rested her chin on the top of the brunette's head. "Is that because of your parents?"
She shrugged. "Maybe," Faith said quietly, thinking, "maybe something else, too. It might be a slayer thing, I guess. I mean, if it's a vamp or a demon, I can fight and I know I'll win. With people, it's different. I don't know what to do with humans. You have to admit, I'm not great at conversation."
"True," Buffy chuckled quietly.
"I get all edgy when I have to deal with people on a regular basis and not on my terms. When I get edgy, my first instinct is to kill. We know how well that worked out before," Faith sighed.
"Yeah," Buffy agreed slowly, "but you've been working on that. And... I hope I can help you, too."
"You are," Faith said as she placed her hands on Buffy's arms.
"So... why do you need to travel?"
Faith thought about it. "Well, it's always been nice to wake up in a different place, or at least it was." She paused. "Guess I don't have a reason."
Buffy leaned down, brushing her lips against Faith's ear. "Does that mean we don't have to travel all that much?"
Faith smiled. "Maybe."
The next day Faith went down to the lobby to see if the two slayers were missing anything by staying in the room constantly and Buffy called Willow.
"Buffy?" Willow said, a little high-pitched. "What going on? Anything wrong?"
"No, Will," Buffy said, shaking her head while she held the phone. "Everything's great, more than great, in fact."
"Breakthrough with Faith?"
"Yes," Buffy said happily. "She told me everything."
"What do you mean by everything, Buff?" Willow asked suspiciously.
"Her childhood, how she became a slayer, why she did the things she did," Buffy summed up then added, "and something even better happened."
"I love her, Will," Buffy strongly stated.
"What?!" Willow screeched into the phone.
"I love Faith," Buffy said again, "and she loves me."
"What the hell happened there, Buffy?"
"We opened up to each other, Will. She trusted me enough to tell me everything. I mean, I had to pry it out of her at first, but she told me. I told her everything she wanted to know about me. We shared, cried and one thing led to another..."
Willow eyes bugged out of her head on the other end of the line. "You had sex with Faith?"
"Yeah," Buffy blushed but was giddy at the memory. "We haven't even left the room since we got here. Faith just went down to the lobby to see if we were missing out on anything but I really doubt we are."
"Wow," Willow tried to process this new development. "So you're sure about this?"
"More than anything ever," Buffy answered strongly. "I'm gonna try to get Faith to agree to go back to L.A. early. I think we've accomplished what we came here to do. We found each other."
"Should I tell everyone you're coming back?"
"Not now," Buffy said, "I haven't talked to Faith yet and I don't want anyone to expect us. I figure we'll probably just show up."
"Okay," Willow agreed.
"Will," Buffy voiced nervously, "are you okay with this?"
"Well," Willow tried to word what she was thinking correctly, "it'll take some getting used to, but I think you'll be a good influence on each other. I can tell Faith's starting to change. You can help her."
"I want to," Buffy said. "God, Will, I love her so much. I think I always did, I just didn't realize it until I got into this room with her."
"I believe you, Buff," Willow smiled, "I won't say anything to anyone here. You can tell them when you get back."
"Thanks," Buffy said as she heard the door open, "I'll talk to you soon."
"Bye, Buffy," Willow said cheerfully, "Tell Faith I said 'hi'."
"I will. Bye, Will," Buffy said as she felt Faith embrace her from behind.
"Hey, baby," Faith greeted, kissing the blonde's ear.
"Hey yourself," Buffy smiled, turning in Faith's embrace and kissing her softly on the lips. She wrapped her arms around Faith's neck. "Will says 'hi'."
"She does?" Faith lifted an eyebrow and leaned back, placing her hands firmly on Buffy's waist.
"Yeah," Buffy smiled. "I told her about us." She indicated their current position.
"And you're not deaf in one ear?" Faith questioned, but smiled. "I figured she'd still be screaming at you if you told her that."
"I think she still could still be in shock," Buffy said while leading Faith in sit down on the bed and sat down next to her. "Besides, she could tell you've started to change. I mean, she did drive you to Sunnydale to fight the First."
"Yeah," Faith sighed, "but I slept most of the way. She did see me in action a little in L.A. but most of that was when I was put into a coma... again." Buffy laughed and Faith narrowed her eyes at the blonde. "Not funny, B. Anyway, when we did talk it was mostly about the First, what was going on in Sunnydale and well... you."
"Hmm," Buffy thought about what Faith said. "Well, Will's gonna be okay with it. She doesn't really have a problem with you anymore, not after you helped with the First. All the hostility is from Xander."
"Yeah, I noticed that," Faith said with a smile. She leaned back, lying down with her feet planted firmly on the floor. She rubbed her face with her hands. "How can any of them trust me again? Hell, why would they even attempt to?"
Buffy placed a hand on the brunette's thigh and looked down at her. "Because I'll ask them to and once they see the new you, they'll come around." She decided to change the subject, wanting to build up to ask Faith to go back to L.A. "Anything interesting down in the lobby?"
Faith pulled Buffy down to her. "Not nearly as interesting as anything up here," she smirked before pushing Buffy's lips to hers, pushing her tongue between the blonde's delicious lips and into her mouth.
Buffy moaned and straddled one of Faith's legs. She put her hands into wild dark hair as Faith's arms wrapped around her, pulling her down until the blonde was fully on top of the young slayer.
Breaking the kiss, Buffy sat back up and pulled a groaning Faith up with her. "I have something to talk to you about."
"Can we talk later?" Faith nearly whined. "I can think of something so much better we could do." She waggled her eyebrows for emphasis and pouted.
Buffy leaned in and pulled Faith's lower lip into her mouth, sucking and biting lightly. She pulled back with a kiss and smiled. "As much as I love sex with you, I need to ask you something first."
Faith edged away from her slightly, nervous of what Buffy might ask. "What is it?"
Buffy suddenly didn't know what to say. She couldn't think of the right words so instead she did the only thing she could think of. She leaned in and kissed the brunette with as much love as she could. Faith reacted instantly, bringing her hand to the back of Buffy's head and parting her lips just enough for Buffy to enter her mouth.
They kissed wildly until they broke for air and Faith sat up again, taking Buffy with her. She rested her forehead against the older slayer's, tenderly kissing her cheek and pulled her closer, embracing her. She knew Buffy was stalling and needed to know what the blonde wanted.
"B, baby," Faith kissed the top of her head, "what were you going to ask me?"
Buffy ran her fingers along one of Faith's arms. "I miss L.A.," she whispered.
Faith started to feel uneasy, almost panicked, wondering if Buffy wanted to leave her now, even after all they'd said and done. She took a deep breath and tried to remain calm. "You want to leave, B?"
Buffy pulled out of Faith's embrace to look at her and saw the worry in her eyes. "I don't think you get what I'm saying. I want you," she pointed at the woman next to her, "to go back to L.A. with me."
"Oh," Faith said, "you don't like it here."
"That's not it, baby," Buffy tried to get the words right. "I love being here with you. These last few days have been the best of my life. I don't want to leave you." She cupped Faith's cheek with one hand and put the other on her thigh. "I never want to leave you."
Faith felt a tear coming and tried to pulled away, but Buffy wouldn't let her. Instead, she pulled them both fully on the bed, lying down with their heads resting against the pillows. She kept an arm around her, resting on her shoulders.
"Why did you want to leave L.A.?" Buffy asked.
"I didn't think I was wanted there," Faith said quietly. "I didn't feel comfortable staying."
"But I want you there," Buffy said, bringing her hand into long, dark hair. "I don't know what I'd do if you weren't with me. That's why I want us to leave together."
Faith didn't say anything, instead burying her head into the crook of Buffy's neck. She didn't know how to respond and her first instinct was to run away. Buffy was holding on to her tightly though, making her stay where she was.
"Faith, please tell me what you're thinking," Buffy whispered to her. "Do you want to stay in Boston?"
Faith shook her head a little against Buffy's shoulder. "I just thought I'd hang here for a few days and then go somewhere else, maybe New York or D.C."
"If I left for L.A. would you rather go to one of those instead?"
The young slayer finally looked up at her. "I want you with me."
Buffy smiled brightly. "Then what's the problem? Instead of going down the east coast, we go back to L.A. and start new. We can train some slayers or we can just do something else. We could go to college or get real jobs."
"You're already planning a future? With me?" Faith was a little shocked and her eyes went wide.
Buffy kept her hand on Faith's cheek. "That's all I want to think about, baby. You, me... positions," she smirked and Faith grinned, "and yes, the future. Don't you think about it, about us?"
"I never thought I had a future, B," Faith said quietly as she put her head on the other woman's chest. "I mean, slayers die young. It's kinda hard for me to think about it."
Pushing Faith's head up to hers, Buffy smiled, "Well, you better start 'cause we definitely have one and I don't want to be the only one planning it. And neither one of us are dying anytime soon."
Faith leaned down to Buffy and kissed her, slipping her tongue into the blonde's mouth and sliding it against hers. She broke away and kissed her cheek. "I love you, Buffy."
"I love you, too," Buffy grinned, caressing the side of her face. "Does this mean you'll go back? I wanna go back but I won't leave without you."
"Yeah, I'll go back," Faith sighed, moving her face to kiss the blonde's palm lightly. "I guess it would be nice to actually have someplace to call home."
"See, thinking ahead is good," the older slayer looked up at Faith, "it can be so much fun."
"Ya know, B," Faith leaned down to kiss her neck, tasting her delicious skin, "we have the room for a couple more days. I'd hate to see it go to waste."
Buffy giggled. "No, we shouldn't waste it."
Faith sat up on her knees, straddling Buffy's waist. "I think we're wearing too many clothes, B." She ran her hands over Buffy's chest, causing the blonde to moan softly. "I really think we should get naked." She rubbed her thumbs over already hard nipples. "Now."
Buffy sat up, grabbing Faith and crushing their lips together. Faith gripped the blonde's head while hands roamed her back. Buffy broke to kiss down the young slayer's neck, causing her to moan as she began rocking back on forth on Buffy's lap.
"I think you're right," Buffy said, licking Faith's ear. She brought her hands down to the bottom for the brunette's tank top and pulled it off, releasing Faith's skin from her lips to allow the material to pass between them. "I don't know how we managed to get dressed in the first place."
"Miracle," Faith grinned and pulled the blonde's shirt off. Neither one wore a bra so their nipples brushed against each other as Faith pushed them together, kissing her fiercely with one hand deep in blonde hair and the other roaming her back..
Faith made Buffy lie back on the bed and unbuttoned the blonde's jeans. She pulled them down, kissing softly just above the blonde's pubic hair then pulled them off. She kept her own jeans on, instead crawled her way back up and hovered above Buffy.
"I wanna taste you," she whispered hungrily in the blonde's ear, "I'm gonna go down on you and fuck you with my tongue." Faith licked her ear as Buffy moaned loudly.
Faith began to make her way down the older slayer's body. She kissed and licked down her neck then placed soft kisses along her collarbone. Her hands caressed strong shoulders as Faith moved lower, leaving a wet trail between Buffy's breasts and kissed her stomach. She felt the blonde's hands massaging the back of her neck and shoulders as she dipped her tongue into her navel.
"God, Faith," Buffy groaned as she felt the brunette move to right above her mound. She looked down to see Faith looking at her with her beautiful dark brown eyes. She couldn't say anything else as the brunette lowered her head and slipped her tongue into her folds.
Faith licked one long stoke and looked up for Buffy's reaction. The blonde had her eyes closed and she moaned quietly. Faith grinned and lowered her head once again. She could see how wet Buffy was and she groaned at the sight. She kissed the older slayer's swollen clit before taking it into her mouth and beginning to suck.
"Shit!" Buffy cried out into the room. She brought her hands into the brunette's hair as Faith swirled her tongue around her clit. "Fuck... that's feels... so good," she sighed as her breathing became more shallow.
Faith smiled against Buffy's pussy and brought her arms under her legs, pulling her closer. She spread the blonde's legs further apart and moved her tongue lower, circling her hole. With the taste of the blonde filling her senses, she drove her tongue into her, pushing as deep as she could go.
"Fuck!" Buffy screamed as she felt Faith enter her. She thrust her hips into Faith's face causing the brunette to tighten her hold on the blonde. Her fingers clamped on her head tightly as Faith pushed her tongue in and out of her tight pussy.
The taste of Buffy was all Faith could think about. The blonde was dripping for her and she gathered as much of the blonde's juices on her tongue as she could. She could feel Buffy was getting close so she moved faster, fucking her as quickly as she could.
Buffy's moans got loader and she writhed against Faith as the pleasure built up, begging to be released. Faith swirled her tongue inside her and brought a hand up, her fingers stroking the blonde's clit in time with her tongue. Buffy cried out into the room as the orgasm hit her.
"Oh! Faith!" she screamed as she arched into Faith.
Faith inwardly grinned as cum gushed into her mouth and down her chin. She swallowed every bit she could as she continued to move her tongue in and out, wanting Buffy to come as hard as she ever had. She fought to keep her grip as Buffy thrust into her but managed to keep the blonde's hips in one place.
Buffy finally collapsed on the bed and let go of Faith's head. Faith gave long last stroke over Buffy's pussy causing the blonde to shudder. The young slayer kissed the inside of each thigh and moved up to Buffy, resting on top of her. She sucked lightly on her neck while Buffy regained her breath.
Wrapping her arms around the brunette, Buffy sighed and moaned as Faith quickly turned her on again. She felt a hand on the side of her face and turned to see Faith grinning at her. Faith pulled her closer and kissed her, Buffy tasting herself on the brunette's lips.
"Hmm," the blonde moaned, breaking the kiss. "That was... incredible."
"Yeah," Faith nibbled on Buffy's neck and shoulder, "you taste incredible, too."
Buffy laughed and tightened her hold on the young slayer. She felt material rub against her leg and looked down. "Baby, you still have your jeans on."
Faith looked down at the blonde, smoothing her mussed hair with her hand. "Well, I was a little side-tracked, B," she smiled and kissed her nose. "You're kinda distracting."
Tucking a hair behind the brunette's ear, Buffy smiled back at her. "No more excuses, Faith. Take your jeans off... now."
Faith smirked as her eyes darkened with lust. She got off Buffy and stood by the end of the bed. She seductively unbuttoned her fly, circling her hips around as she did. Grinning, she hooked her thumbs in the hem of her jeans and slowly pulled them down, putting on a show for the blonde on the bed.
Once she had her jeans down to her ankles, Faith stepped out of them and lifted an eyebrow at the woman ogling her naked form. "You like?"
"Mm-hmm," Buffy nodded, motioning to Faith with her finger, "get over here."
Faith leaped and dove right onto Buffy, who caught her effortlessly. They both laughed, deeply kissing each other as they rolled around on the bed. Buffy got Faith to lie on her back and she rested on top of her lightly.
"Baby, I think I've been a little greedy," she caressed the side of her face. "I want to make you feel good, too."
"You do," Faith said and tried to roll over, but Buffy kept her where she was. "You don't have to do anything."
"Hey, this will be an equal relationship here," Buffy said and Faith lifted an eyebrow. "Yes, I said relationship. You will have to get used to this." She indicated their current position, her on top.
"Sorry, baby, this is new for me," Faith said, shifting a little underneath the blonde.
Buffy kissed her neck and shoulder. "It's new for me, too," she whispered, "just tell me what to do." She took a nipple into her mouth and began to suck.
"Oh, Christ...," Faith moaned, keeping her hands on Buffy's back, "I think you're doing pretty good so far."
Buffy smiled against Faith's skin, licking the breast she'd been sucking and moving over to the other one, giving it equal time. She moved lower, kissing Faith's toned stomach while her hands explored the rest of the brunette's upper body. Her hands came to rest on the younger woman's breasts as she inched her way to Faith's crotch.
"Yeah... that's it, B," Faith groaned out as Buffy gently squeezed her breasts and kissed along the edge of her trimmed curls.
Buffy looked up at her beautiful lover. "Do you want me to?" she asked seductively.
"God, yes," Faith sighed as she brought a hand into Buffy's hair. She felt the blonde lean in and taste her for the first time.
Buffy groaned out loud and pulled Faith as close to her as she could. She ran her tongue across the brunette's clit, feeling her juices flow faster. She wasn't all that sure what to do so she mirrored Faith's actions on her earlier and took her clit into her mouth, sucking lightly.
Faith arched into the blonde as her hands moved from her shoulders into her hair. Buffy began to suck harder and she cried out in response.
"Shit... Buffy," she moaned out and Buffy tightened her grip on her hips. The feel of Buffy's tongue on her was almost more than she could take. A tear managed to escape and roll down her cheek as Buffy continued moving her tongue across her clit.
Buffy released Faith's clit and moved a little mover. A wave of nervousness hit and she wondered if she was doing it right. She looked up at Faith to see the brunette's eyes were closed, her face scrunched as her gasped for breath. Buffy moved her hands up the sides of Faith's body and down her front, resting them on either side of her stomach, slowly massaging her skin with strong hands.
"Baby, am I doing this right?" she asked quietly, still massaging the brunette softly.
Faith slowly opened her eyes to see huge hazel ones looking back at her. She slowed her breathing just enough to answer her. "Yeah, B. That feels so good. You feel so good." She moved her hand out of her hair to the side of her face. "I want to in me. Put your tongue in me, baby," she breathed out and closed her eyes as she felt Buffy blow lightly on her clit as she moved in again.
To Buffy, Faith's voice was the biggest turn-on ever. She licked across the younger slayer's pussy, wanting to please her lover, and inched her way lower. Reaching her destination, she teased the edge of Faith's hole before thrusting her tongue in with one smooth motion. She felt Faith's inner walls move to accommodate her tongue as she began to move slowly in and out.
"Oh, God... yes!" Faith cried out as she felt Buffy penetrating her, fucking her with her tongue. She thrust her hips into the older slayer's face so incredibly fast she thought she would buck Buffy right off her, but the blonde moved and hooked her arms under Faith's hips, effectively keeping her where she was.
Buffy picked up the pace and pulled Faith as close as she could to her. She loved the taste of Faith and just couldn't get enough of it. She buried her face into her pussy as her tongue fucked the brunette quicker.
"Fuck! God, Buffy, I'm gonna come!" Faith screamed out into the room as she arched into the blonde's face one last time, feeling cum gush out of her and onto Buffy.
Buffy continued her actions as she swallowed every last drop of cum that was released into her mouth. She heard Faith whimper as she slowed her actions to a stop and removed her tongue from the brunette's absolutely soaked hole. She groaned herself as she could still taste Faith on her lips and placed a soft kiss on top of the young slayer mound.
Faith felt Buffy move up her body and rest on hers, the blonde's sweaty skin burning into her own. Buffy kissed up her neck and chin, finally reaching her lips. She kissed her tenderly, her arms on either side of the brunette's head as she rubbed her body against the woman underneath her.
"Okay?" Buffy breathed out as she felt Faith wrapped her arms around her back. The brunette returned her kiss as she moved her hands around Buffy's back.
"Yeah," she said as she moved her hands up to Buffy's shoulders. "I love you."
Buffy grinned widely. "I love you, Faith," she responded and moved off to the side of the young slayer. She brought a hand up the side of Faith's face and rubbed her thumb across her cheek. "Not so bad, huh?"
Faith shook her head. "You are incredible," she whispered and turned to face her, resting on her side. She rested a hand on the blonde's waist and tried her hardest not to jump her again, just seeing the woman next to her naked making her hot all over again. "No one's ever made me feel like that before. Hell, no one's done that to me before."
"No?" Buffy questioned, arching an eyebrow. Faith shook her head. "Well, I guess I should do that more often."
Faith laughed. "I wouldn't object. In fact, I insist that you do."
Buffy smiled and pulled Faith to her, kissing her with all the love she felt. She broke away and tucked Faith's hair behind her ear. "I'm not making you come back to L.A. with me, am I? I don't want you to go if you don't want to or if you don't feel comfortable."
"Honestly, I'm not comfortable with going back," Faith said, looking at the blonde for a reaction. All she got was Buffy looking down, refusing to meet her gaze. She moved her hand to her chin and pushed her face up, making her look at her. "I was hoping you would help me with that. I just want to be with you."
Buffy's face broke into a grin. "I think I can help with that," she kissed Faith's forehead. "I promise no one will ever hurt you. I will never hurt you."
"I know," was all Faith could say as they wrapped their arms around each other, resting before they started again.
Two days later Buffy and Faith took a flight back to L.A. The flight was uneventful, other than a small argument during the flight.
"Come on, B," Faith whispered in Buffy's ear while they were somewhere over the Midwest. "It'll be fun."
"I am not joining the mile-high club with you, Faith," Buffy whispered back, hoping no one was able to hear them. They had managed to get their own row but were still relatively surrounded by people. "We're surrounded."
"I don't mean in front of all these people," Faith leaned closer to Buffy, licking her ear. "Let's go into the bathroom. No one will miss us."
Buffy closed her eyes and found her willpower. "No, Faith. We are not having sex in the dirty, tiny airplane bathroom."
"B," Faith practically whined, "we've been fully clothed all day. I haven't touched you in hours. I want you so bad right now."
Buffy turned her head and kissed Faith lightly on the lips. "I'll make it up to you when we land, okay?"
Faith gave her a questioning look. "How?"
"Oh, you'll see," Buffy grinned at her and winked.
Faith sat back in her chair, defeated. "All right," she sighed, "but it better be good." She crossed her arms on her chest and pouted.
"Aw, poor baby," Buffy giggled as she pulled Faith back to her, putting her head on her shoulder. "You're so cute when you pout."
Faith only grunted in response, but relaxed as she leaned against the blonde. "Wake me when we land."
The cab pulled up to the hotel that was still slayer-central even though Giles was trying to change that. Faith looked out the window and sighed.
"Nervous?" Buffy asked, rubbing Faith's back as the cab slowed to a stop.
"Yeah," Faith gulped. "What if this is a mistake? They'll never accept me."
"It'll take some time," Buffy said, "but they'll come around. You have nothing to worry about. They trust my judgement."
"Okay," Faith sighed and got out of the cab as Buffy did the same. She paid the driver and grabbed the bags from the trunk, handing Buffy hers. Buffy grabbed her hand and held it in her own.
"We're home, Faith," Buffy said, squeezing Faith's hand. She smiled as Faith squeezed back.
"We're home," Faith agreed as they walked into the hotel lobby, ready to start a life together.
