"Oooooo.. Shitty shitty, fuck fuck." Savvy cursed. Bouncing and pacing back and fourth along the floor of her living room. Her red hair all a mess with her reading glasses pushed up to the top of her head, pinning it all down like some faulty headband. Her small frame clad in a comfy white, hello kitty crop top[/URL], grey shorts and a pair of fuzzy grey slipper boots. She was in and comfy for the evening but it was clear from her body language that she was now more than just a little anxious. Slim fingers wringing together as she glanced at the door and back to her computer.

She had once AGAIN managed to somehow fall into the web and not have her computer make it out in one piece. Virus's and bloatware and all this other crazy crap she didn't really understand but seemed to have a taste for her apparently. So when she'd been doing some research for the Black Cat Curiosities shop and inputting some data into a work official spreadsheet (with a whole bunch of inventory lists and finance information), she'd stumbled upon just the wrong site at the absolutely worst moment and had her computer completely freeze up and crash.

Dead.

The thing may as well have been a brick! There was no login screen. No boot up page, just the black screen of death and a single white cursor line lurking at the top of it. Taunting her with it's blinking, white existence. Like it was laughing at her in only a way that a computer knew how.

"Shitttt shit shit...." Savvy glanced down to her phone again for the umpteenth time. Waiting for her wet dream worthy techy friend Sean to hit her back. This wasn't the first time this had happened of course. Savvy, despite all of her intelligence and video game playing, had just never really been able to get a grasp on the workings of computers. She understood the basic logistics. Her brain could recall different pieces and parts that she'd read about in the manual but to actually fix it? To figure it out. Fuck no! She was useless as a brick herself.

Sean was the answer. Like a super hero without a cape, he'd come in before and fixed it right up and this time, it wasn't just a porn mishap or the need for a format. Savvy had potentially LOST the very important information Alexis had given her to research and look in on. All of her results and number crunching, it was all just gone! And more than anything, more than getting that dumb hunk of junk working, Savvy just really needed it retrieved from her hard drive.

"C'mooon Sean! Please please please please please say you'll come!!" The red head urged to herself, speaking down to her phone as she stared at the open screen of her text message that read:

SEAAAN!! Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi – you're my only hope!!!! My computer! AH! Please come!! Ps - Hi ya Mr.Vane

...and after reading it again, Savvy's pretty green eyes flicked to the door. Waiting for a response via text or for the buzzer to go off that would likely be him trying to get into the building. After all, sometimes Sean just showed up. He wasn't a flake and Savvy knew he wouldn't let her down.

To say Sean Kelly was a nerd was a bit of an understatement though his credentials were something more substantial than a list of video games. Bachelor of Computer Science and a hacker to boot. Anything to do with computer systems and he was all over it. It was how he made his money in the private investigation business along side some interesting folks. The internet was an ocean and Sean was a deep sea diver.

His apartment was more a studio; a single room that combined bedroom, kitchen and living room in one with a separate bathroom off to the side. Three monitors and a rig was his life and currently he was just browsing the internet for League of Legends guides. In his focus he had lost track of the fact that his phone had been vibrating and so after unlocking the screen and reading the text messages and missed calls his face brightened.

Savannah needed help. It was not the first time but Sean felt like he had no obligation to her because it made her sound like a chore. No; he adored her. She was beautiful, funny and all into the same stuff as he was. From the sounds of it there was something wrong with her computer but without actually seeing it he wouldn't know.

He took his backpack and loaded it up with what he needed; a spare laptop for dealing with possibly infected computers. Especially if Savannah had been getting knuckle-deep with herself looking at suspect websites. He pulled a leather jacket over his tank-top which showed off his inked flesh and muscled arms along with a helmet which covered his face.

Once Sean had locked up he headed down to the parking area where his gorgeous blue bike was waiting for him; a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R. With furious fingers he typed away back to the girl who was calling him like a Jedi of the world wide web.

I expect to see you in nothing but stockings and heels, your minx.

After he hit 'send' Sean straddled his bike, turned the engine and kicked off down the street towards her apartment. It wasn't a long ride. He knew the quieter streets enough to know where to avoid the gridlock and luckily he could slip past heavier vehicles. Once he pulled up to apartment block he slid from the bike and ran up to the front door before pressing the buzzer; looking up expectantly as if to see Savannah.

"YEEEEEEEE---SSSSSSS!!!" Savvy literally jumped from the ground and up onto her couch. Doing an all kinds of funky pants dance as she waved her hands around like she'd just won comic costume contest for a million dollars. And wasn't that the truth? Sean was a liiiiiiiiife savior. Beyond just being stupid hot a really good friend to Savvy, he was also damn good at his work AND kind enough to share his skills with a useless derp like Savannah when it came to computers.

Stopping dead from her celebration. Savvy blinked a few times. Green eyes glancing back down to the response he had actually sent. Eyeing it like she thought something was about to actually jump out of the phone at her. "I.....heels? He's not serious....Nah....he's-totally-just-trolling-cause-it-isn't-like-that." She blabbered, rambling to herself all the while eyeing the text suspiciously. "Naaah he's totally messing with me. Mr.Vane. Jerkface." She mumbled and then --

"Oh shit!" Green eyes dashed around her apartment. Huffing a long, over exaggerated sigh at the sight of more than just a few bras, underwear and dirty laundry kicking around. Not to mention the plates on the coffee table and the day old pizza on the end table. "Shiiiiiit" She sprang forward, launching off the couch and making a made dash around the room. Collecting panties and bras like they were pokemon. Grabbing the plates and the pizza box and piling it all up in her arms as she walked toward the kitchen. Dumped the pizza box in the recycling, the dishes in the sink (cause who DOESN't have dirty dishes in their sink?) and floored it to her bedroom. Dropping the laundry into her hamper with a relieved sigh.

That was the moment the buzzer went off and jolting back to life, Savvy scurried across the apartment, slapped her hand onto the wall intercom button that would let her speak to him. "Come on up!" She grinned, hitting the door button repeatedly for a moment to make sure he caught it when it unlocked and then went to her own door. Savvy lived on the third floor. Unit number 333, so it never took people long to get there.

Opening the door before he even knocked, the red head grinned - glanced down to the ground and yipped. Snatching a pair of panties up with her foot and lifting it back to her ass, so she could grab it behind her back juuuust as he walked around the corner. Her mouth opening to speak but choked on her words. Sean was a good friend and she trusted him and was relatively comfortable with him, but sometimes, when they hadn't seen each other for a bit it was like her brain forgot how hot he was and once again would proceed to malfunction upon seeing him.

"Uh..hi ya...Mr.Vane." She smiled, clutching the panties in her hand behind her back as she purposely stepped to the side with her back to the door so he could come in freely. "...enter if you dare." She smiled sheepishly. Snatching her free hand up to her head to grab her glasses off of it as if she just remembered they were there. Bashfully pulling slim fingers through the red length of her hair. Trying to make it less of a mess. "I know I always say this but I reeeaaaally appreciate you coming." She said, then blinked, cleared her throat and added. "You.....coming ...to save my computer I mean. With all the broken and not-working-so-great-tech-thingys-that-seem-to-really-hate-me-with-a-fiery-passion-but-you're-here-to-fix, soooooo" She remembered to breath. "Drink?"

The climb up the stairs wasn't particularly long and since he spent a lot of time on the run along the streets with a sort of free-running attitude it didn't slow him down one bit. His fist rose up to knock at the door but he stopped short and let out a small surprised sound before he saw Savanaah's face appear from behind it. He smiled at her; bright teeth and earnest eyes as he searched her face. She had eyes Sean could just look into as he ran his hands all over and for a moment he did indeed just stare at her before he spoke.

"Oh. I dare." he told her with a grin before entering the apartment. He looked around and gave a small hum of approval at what he saw. It was more homely than his own place though Sean did enjoy the whole 'nerd nest' feel of his studio apartment. Rather than make a beeline for the patient, the computer, Sean shrugged off his jacket to expose his arms and all the artwork laced over his skin before hanging it up over the back of the sofa.

Sean turned to give Savannah a small embrace; slipping his arms around her and letting their bodies just touch for a moment before he stepped back. "I thought I said heels and stockings? I was dead serious. My morale is so low and you...unf...girl you'd buck it back up."
. A wink to show that he was indeed at least semi-joking flashed before he stepped over to the computer that was affected by whatever issue that was going on with it.

He looked at the screen and found the cursor blinking at him. Sean tilted his head from side to side as he tried to figure out the next step and went through the motions of restarting the device and then hammering the function eight key in a bid to get into the bios. "Uh, coffee love." the Irishman said with his rolling silver brogue. "No sugar. Sweet enough. Just a dash o' cream."

With the BIOS on the screen Sean took out his own laptop and booted it up; connecting it via USB and waiting for his device to load up. "So what exactly have you been looking at Savvy? Because I won't judge if you say porn. But you know you're like, able to snag a lad if you just asked right? Besides it'll do your PC a world o' good." It was good to ask probing questions; how, when, why and where to help diagnose the issue.

"Hi yas.”Savvy greeted again, rather stupidly. Not that it could be helped. The way he looked at her sometimes made her feel like she had underwear on her head, a boot on her hand and a condom on her toe. She wasn’t sure why. She’d seen the pictures of him and the ladies he hung out with. They were all gorgeous and leggy. Brand name, model types while Savvy hated brand names and — hello? She was wearing a hello kitty crop top. It didn’t exactly scream alluring. So she always just assumed she had food in her teeth or that it was just something he did to everyone.

Soft green eyes went wide as he came in for a brief hug and, remembering the underwear, panicked and tossed it out the door behind him without thinking. It wasn’t a smart move by any means. It made little to no sense but as Savvy let him pass by and closed the door behind him all she could think was she was grateful he didn’t get a chance to see the incredibly childish boy shorts, Pokémon underwear she’d been sporting the day before.

Trying desperately to keep her cool and not think about what would happen when he left and said panties were still there, Savvy opened her mouth to speak and instead let out a very airy, breathy sounding laugh as he made his remark about the heels. Laugh-snorting awkwardly, Savvy lifted a hand and pushed him playfully on the bicep. Her cheeks flaring up pink as she just gave a small smile and shook her head, ”Sorry Mr.Vane, geek girls like me don’t belong in outfits like that. My hospital insurance would be through the roof for all the times I’d trip on the heels and face plant the floor.” She chirped back, playfully. Not taking him serious in the slightest. They’d been friends for awhile and he was so, so, soooo out of her league. Honestly? Savvy wasn’t even sure she was playing the same ‘game’ he did.

Standing watching him as he took his jacket off and made himself at home, she stood quiet for a long moment and clued in. ”Shit! Right. Coffee. Coming right up.” The red head said, twisting on her heel and heading for the open style kitchen. Rummaging around as she pulled out her Kuerig machine and a pod of straight black. No flavours. It wasn’t exactly gourmet but Savvy wasn’t rich, so it would just have to do. Putting it on as it started to brew, she pulled out the cream and got to pondering exactly what an Irishman’s definition of a dash was. ”I hope you’re not into fancy pants Starbucks cause I don’t have that here.” She called through the rooms, adding a ‘dash’ of cream to the oversized mug that said ‘Get the —- out’ with a picture of the fox between the words.

Grabbing a bottle of water for herself, she brought the mug over to him and set it down on the coffee table next to her brick of a lap top and his — holy shit, that thing looked like it could hit warp speed! Eyeing his laptop, Savvy just sat down on the couch next to him and lifted her slippered feet up under her ass on the couch cushion so she was sort sitting sideways on the sofa and facing him. Her one arm closest to the back rest pressing its elbow into the top of it and leaning her head into that palm. The bottle of water resting in the indent of the press of her thighs.

”For once I really wish it was just porn.” She frowned, shooting her own computer an evil look that put the power of the Death Star to shame. ”...I was researching items for work. Alexis gave me this file to bring up to date. Crunch some numbers for inventory but I clicked this one site that looked promising and — Psssssh blam-o!” She explained, emphasizing the blam-o with an explosion of her fist to spread fingers kind of motion. ”Suddenly the screen was flickering, my disc drive popped open and then everything just shut down. It went to black screen and that—- that evil little cursor line just kept blinking at me like it was Dr. Evil laughing. So I really, really just need that file retrieved. It took me houuuurs to throw together. I don’t even care about the laptop! I can go a month or two without porn and YouTube so long as I get that file.”

"Well I mean I can't really say anything on the clumsiness since I'm here fixing your laptop. But you, Sav, would look amazing. I mean you always do."

With a smile he looked over at her as he picked up his coffee mug and sipped from the rim. Sure it wasn't Starbucks but then to him that was a good thing; you paid out the ass for Starbucks Coffee and it tasted of the same blend. At least at home he could choose what to put in it and at no extra cost since you could buy the cheap stuff and it tasted the same. "Coffee is great, love. But let's see what we can do about this eh?"


Sean brought up a program to scan across the laptop's hard drive and then plugged in an external drive into his machine so he could attempt to recover the information. While the program went away through the diagnostics to see what exactly caused it he went through his own mental theories. If it was hardware then it wasn't a virus and if it was a virus it was a particular pain in the ass.

The first priority was recovering the hard drive from the computer. Or at least its contents. Then Savannah could use another machine to access the information that she had worked so painstakingly on. He sat his laptop over to one side then went through the BIOS of the 'patient' to see if he could see anything unusual. So far it looked all normal. Then his own machine beeped at him.

"You know have you ever thought of dating? Or using one of those apps? Nice girl like you should have a nice lad. Y'know?"
he said off-handed as one hand reached for the coffee mug and the other for his own laptop. The diagnostic had come back negative for viruses so either it was clean or just something very craftily woven together which was a shame because he'd love to get his hands on some malicious code to play with.

He started the file transfer to the external hard drive. It didn't take long. Or at least it took naught but several minutes before the hard drive was downloaded and a scrubber program ran to ensure that no hidden code was lingering. Then he safely pulled it out and offered it to Savannah. "Your life's work. Now let's see what I can do about raising the dead huh?"

But you, Sav, would look amazing. I mean you always do.

The words fell from his lips so casually. So smoothly it was like no big deal. Not a thing for him. Yet somewhere inside Savvy's brain little micro explosions were going off. The 'Red alert' from Star Trek alarm bells sounded between her ears and all she could do was stare at his mouth and wonder - had she heard that right? Was this for real? After all, Sean was usually a bit of a flirt but from his first text to now he'd be dropping compliments like bombs setting off in Savvy's mind.

It was...NO...BIG...DEAL. She pressed the words through her mind as the corner of her mouth twitched in an awkward, shy smile and she slipped her tongue between her lips for all but a split second. "Yes...Right. The computer. " She pointed at it like a knob. Like he needed reminding which one was hers and broken.

Pulling her bottle of water from her lap, Savvy cracked the sealed lid and drank slowly. Smalls sips that seemed to be cooling her off and quenching her suddenly oh so dry throat. Soft green eyes dashing to him and back again as he worked. The focus in his gaze fixed on the job at hand. "You're pretty into all this, huh?" She said, finding it hard not notice how transfixed his eyes had become. Like the world had dropped away and it was just him and his computers. Savvy could understand that. She felt that way about her books and her studies and, yes, her video games. Her personal escapes that she could just dive into for hours and not need a moment to surface.

Glancing down to his computer as it beeped, the red heads eyebrow lifted suspiciously. Like she thought perhaps his was about to blow up, too. After all, whenever Savvy's laptop did that it was never, ever good news. The words that followed that beep however screeched all of Savvy's thought processes to a halt. The topic of dating was something she'd skillfully avoided with most people and most definitely Mr.Vane. While he seemed a good guy and friend, she hadn't really wanted to risk him thinking she was some sexual freak with commitment issues or just plain weird for being twenty-four year old virgin.

"....Nah that's okay. I mean, I was seeing someone for a bit but he had to move out of town unexpectedly so-we-had-to-call-it-off" She babbled nervously. "Ooooooh! We-should-totally-get-tacos!" She exclaimed rather randomly. Throwing a hard curve ball through the conversation to naturally veer it off course. That was when she caught a movement in the corner of her eyes and glanced down to one of her cats - Harley - as he strolled into the room all kinds of 'King of the castle'. His unique fur was a molted grey, black and white as his body collapsed on the floor just out of arms reach from Sean - giving him a 'how dare you intrude' kind of glare.

Sean's hand moving to give her something snapped her out of her focus on Harley very quickly however and as he handed her the external hard drive along with his words, Savvy almost launched at him from her knelt position. Throwing her torso into the side of his one bicep and wrapping her arms tightly around his broad upper body. Her ear pressing into his one shoulder as she looked up at him beaming. Bright eyed and obviously grateful.

"Thank you, thank you, thank youuuuuuuuuu." Savvy chirped. "Oh my god you're seriously a life saver! I could kiss your Mr.Vane! I owe you soooo much!" She grinned ear to ear. Squeezing her arms tightly around him as her face cuddled his shoulder (damn he smelt good) before finally letting him go and leaning back so her ass hit her heels ones more.

Green eyes glancing down to the hard drive in her grip like she wondered if she should hug the stupid thing, too. "Tacos are seriously on me tonight. How about I order up some uber eats and we get our munchies on!"

"To say that I'm into computers is a bit of an understatement." said Sean by way of agreement. "It is a whole other world. Imagine the internet as the sea. What you surf on is just the surface but beneath the waves...oh if you have the know-how you can find anything and anyone. And just so happens I have the know-how."

Computers were a gateway to endless possibilities when not just being used for games and social media. They could cripple a country or strength it. All it took was the know-how and it was an entirely different life. You became a sort of alter-ego. Sean's alias was already sort of cycled through deep web forums about his pranks and 'heists' on well known companies.

He disconnected the two laptops and started Savvy's on a sort of rebuild process of finding itself from when it didn't turn itself into a fancy paperweight. It would take some time to recall that information and so he carefully placed it back onto the floor and wiggled his fingers and cooed at Harvey for a moment. He had a thing for cats. Just the way they climbed and clambered on a person one moment and then he looked back up to Savannah.

Sean felt a little out of sorts about her response to the dating question only for it to roll onto tacos. There wasn't much for him to say without sounding like a dick trying his luck and so he didn't really respond to her break-up situation. "Well. If you ever wanna date just...y'know...hit me up and I'll see." Sean meant to make it sound like he was offering a sort of dating service. He had friends, nice guys and regular sweethearts that would be perfect for an angel like Savannah. Sean figured he was a little too rough around the edges.

"But the tacos? That sounds great! Whatcha wanna do? Dim the lights, under a heavy blanket and watch something on the TV?" Sean closed his laptop and set it down. He was rather happy to have Savannah clinging onto his arm and he sort of made a gesture by leaning back and becoming her that she could, if she wanted, lay down with him on the sofa. "Beef, salad and...sour cream dip for mine." he said with a wide grin. "Now c'mere. I want a proper cuddle."

"Just one more thing I like about you." She mumbled glancing down in reference to his passion for computers. Some people had zero passion. Not focus or investment in whatever they were good at. Sean was clearly not that. He was very, very good at what he did and it showed a little more each time he helped her out.

When he brought up the dating thing again and offered up his friends, she wasn't sure how to take it. Did she seem that pathetic that she needed the help or had she just done something to slip up and let him in on just how attractive she found him - mind and body. Pondering these things, Savvy just stared at his hand. Watching how he interacted with her cat and how Harley seemed completely disinterested. Jenko however, her bratty orange cat, came trotting over from out of nowhere and brushed himself right up against Sean's fingers. Quiet, small mews for attention as he bunted his head into Sean's knuckles and started to quietly purr.

"Harley's an asshole but Jenko's an attention slut." She explained with a smirk. Soft green eyes glancing away from him as she worried a bit. She really didn't want to offend him. She loved what they had. The chemistry had been instantaneous the day they'd met at the comic con dressed as the same male character - Vincent from FF 7 - and it just hadn't stopped. She didn't want that to change for any reason and her thoughts showed a little on her face as she chewed the corner of her lip anxiously and seemed to 'zone out' for a few seconds.

Taking a deep breath, Savvy pushed up from the couch and slapped a grin back on her face. Standing to walk over to her cell phone as she drummed up the Uber Eats app and scrolled through the options. Nachos, nachos, nachos. Who had the best nachos? Her eyes flicking up to meet his as he made his comment about dimmed lights, heavy blankets and a proper cuddle - of course, all so casually as he threw out what he wanted for his order.

The shy, nervous snort-laugh was right on queue as she held her gaze to his own and gave a little grin. "That sounds really good." Savvy replied. "...the taco stuff. I think I'll get that, too but add some cheese." The red head grinned, glancing back down to her phone as she tapped in the order and sent it in with no technical difficulties - point one, Savvy!

Setting her phone down as she walked back towards the couch, Savvy shuffled out of her slipper boots so she was down to bare feet and cleared her throat as she walked up right next to where he had kinda sprawled out on her couch.. "Okay..." She said softly in delayed reference to the cuddle. Her one knee coming up to slide between his own as she half crawled on top of his body and laid herself over it. Kind of pressed upon him and the back rest as she came to rest her cheek to his upper chest. One hand very skiddishly pressing her palm into the hard cut of his abs as she tried to get comfortable.

Her eyes shutting for a moment. Then wincing tight as her features scrunched up cutely like she was trying not to say something - or maybe to say something? Before she just blurted out. "I'm a twenty-four year old-virgin-that's -done-almost-everything-but-have-sex-and-that-believes-in-polyamorous-lifestyle-and-i-didn't-tell-you-cause-I-thought you'd-think-I-was-a-freak-and-I-didn't-want-that-but-now-you-know-why-I-don't-really-date-besides-my-generally-awkwardness-around-hot-guys-like-you-and-my-clumsiness-i-mean" And she gasped after babbling, breathing in deeply as she turned her face into his chest, wincing again. "Please don't stop hanging out with me., Sean..."

And for whatever reason, all Savvy could think in that moment was Fuck you Kimberly Waters! because that bitch would've been able to seduce the pants right off of Sean and barely batted a lash. UGH.

It was probably the first time Sean would ever curse out a speedily delivery where food was involved. He had been so wrapped up in what Savannah was saying that he was metaphorically on the edge of his seat. So when the conversation ended as the door buzzer went he groaned out in irritation but didn't stop her from fetching the food

The food did smell great and now he had a choice; continue the conversation now or later once they had eaten. "I say we see if we can juggle them. Besides I dunno if tacos microwave well. Might get all weird or soggy." Sean moved his legs from his long sprawl out and sat up and leaned forward to pick up his bag and pull the little plastic holder with his taco inside.

Sean had a bit of a large bite radius and with a second bite there was only a small mouthful left which he soon followed up with when his mouth was clear. Food was something that he rushed because there were better things to be dealing with and right now he wanted to hear Savannah's thoughts without further interruptions.

"Finish your food, lovely. Then we'll cuddle right back up. No distractions. But maybe you can fill me in on the whole poly thing cause despite me being in the know about some stuff that just sails right over my head without ruffling the hair."

When he didn’t burst out laughing or shove her off himself immediately, Savvy’s shoulders relaxed a little. Her whole body had gone tight and strained against him. Stressed by the idea of losing Sean’s friendship. Of the company she’d seriously come to enjoy very thoroughly and the trust that, she hoped, had started to build up between them.

Opening one eye and then the next as she listened to that husky, Irish brogue, Savvy tilted her head up just a little to peek at him. Glancing what she could of his expression from her head’s lowered position on top of his chest. To her surprise, there was no lie registering in his eyes. No sign of sarcasm in his voice. Not even when he said it didn’t matter that she was a virgin. She’d had guys scoff at her for being twenty-four and never having sex. She’d also had cherry chasers who had come after her just because she was one - but she’d been so far from interested in that.

It wasn’t until Sean’s own subtle vulnerability came into light that Savvy fully lifted her head. Folding one forearm across his chest as she brought herself back up to meet his eyes. The other hand lingering where’d she settled it down on his abs. It was....rare....to see Sean so uncertain. He had always been so bold and out there. Hell, Savvy had found his nude modeling photos online when they’d first met and aside from being impressed for obvious physical reasons, she’d very nearly been downright proud. It took guts to do that stuff. To stand exposed to the world and do it with confidence. She’d even gone as far as saving a few of her favourites onto her computer - not that he knew that.

It really took her brain a moment to process it all. From being unfamiliar with polyamorous, the bit about going on a date as a couple to the sincerity of how great it made him feel to help her specifically. Yes, he’d talked about being there for his friends.....but he’d said since it’s....you and the implications made Savvy offer up a shy grin that more honestly made her green eyes shine.

”...Holy shamrocks, Batman...” She said on a breath. ”I mean.....no yeah...I mean woah.” Savvy replied, forcing herself to speak slowly and not freak out. He’d opened up to her after all and she wasn’t about to be a dick by babbling like a loon. ”....Well....I mean....I really like hanging out with you, too Sean... You kinda get me in a way most don’t and...if I make you feel like a superhero then you should know I’m the Leia to your Han or maybe Robin to your Batman or ...Tifa to your Cloud or...erm...the cheesy to your Mac? anyways... you always make me feel really safe and special. Like I know no matter what you have my back if I need you, just like tonight I didn’t need you to respond to know you’d come through for me....” Pushing her hand up from his abs, her fingers strayed over his collarbone. Eyes. Cast down toward them. ”....as for being polyamorous—“ she started and got abruptly cut off by the door buzzer going off.

”Uhm, I ..just....hit the start button and pause this...for a sec, Kay?” Both hands pushing into his chest as she eased up from her and slipped away. Walking to the intercom buttons by the front door to answer down to the delivery guy and buzz him in. Leaning back against the wall as she glimpsed over to Sean and then down to Jenko at her feet. Savvy shooed the cat from the door as the delivery guy knocked and grabbed the warm bag of nachos. Not having to worry about paying since it was all done via the app.

Closing the door after the delivery guy left, Savvy walked back over and nervously bit at her bottom lip. ”....these things smell amaze-balls.” She grinned. Setting the brown bag down on the coffee table as she stood, shuffling awkwardly, like she didn’t know what to do with herself. Close enough to him though that she was less than an arm reach away. ”....are you really hungry? Did you wanna eat right away or.....” She let the statement drift. Putting the ball solely in his court if he wanted to keep talking about what they were or not. She wasn’t going to force him if he just wanted to chill and munch nachos after all....even though now that she’d started telling him she kind of wanted to finish. So he knew the full kit and kaboodle and she didn’t have to worry about his reaction anymore.

”I mean, I’m not super hungry if you wanted me...to come back....there...to you, on you — er, with you? And talk and hang or ...proper cuddle? Was that what you called it? Heh did the cuddle have manners and that’s why it was proper?” She started to ‘Savvy babble’ and then just rolled her eyes up at herself and puffed a breath out. ”You know what I mean...I think...It was just...cozy. Considering how hard you are — errr muscular. Considering how muscular you are...cause of all...the muscles...” Giving a sheepish grin, just kind hoping he’d tell her either to eat or to shut up already and get back to those strong, tatted arms....

It was probably the first time Sean would ever curse out a speedily delivery where food was involved. He had been so wrapped up in what Savannah was saying that he was metaphorically on the edge of his seat. So when the conversation ended as the door buzzer went he groaned out in irritation but didn't stop her from fetching the food

The food did smell great and now he had a choice; continue the conversation now or later once they had eaten. "I say we see if we can juggle them. Besides I dunno if tacos microwave well. Might get all weird or soggy." Sean moved his legs from his long sprawl out and sat up and leaned forward to pick up his bag and pull the little plastic holder with his taco inside.

Sean had a bit of a large bite radius and with a second bite there was only a small mouthful left which he soon followed up with when his mouth was clear. Food was something that he rushed because there were better things to be dealing with and right now he wanted to hear Savannah's thoughts without further interruptions.

"Finish your food, lovely. Then we'll cuddle right back up. No distractions. But maybe you can fill me in on the whole poly thing cause despite me being in the know about some stuff that just sails right over my head without ruffling the hair."

Her stomach growled. Rather loudly at the smell of the food and she was actually glad Sean chose to eat first afterall. Thinking about it then as she took up the seat next to him, Savvy realized she hadn't really eaten much all day. So caught up by her work the need for food had gone to the wayside.

Opening up her bag, she took out her taco and started to eat. Her bites not nearly the size of Seans as she glanced at him. Paused mid bite and watched as he devoured the thing in a mere few chomps. Savvy's eyebrow lifting up as the taco lowered from her mouth just a little and gave a very small, almost secretive smile that might've been all about and completely just for him.

"....I don't know whether to be impressed with your mouth or intimidated because even a sarlacc couldn't compete with it." she teased, lifting her own taco back up to her mouth to continue eating. Munching it down with all the ooey gooey cheesy goodness the red head clearly seemed to enjoy.

Finishing, Savvy wasn't shy about sucking the meat sauce from her fingertips before grabbing a napkin and cleaning up her hands properly. Standing up to collect up the garbage as Jenko, her orange cat with a piece of his one ear missing, jumped up onto the back of the couch and started to pace, mew and bunt its head toward Seans own.

"...I'm just going to clean this up real quick while you get it on with Jenko there." She said, clearly amused by herself or her cat as she walked away giving a short, breathy laugh and shaking her head. "...do you want something more to drink? I've also got Doritos if you're still feeling hungry." she paused, glancing back. Waiting for his response before walking off.

Hitting up the kitchen after he answered, Savvy moved about to throw out the trash and grab what she needed. Her small body leaned into the counters edge. The short length of her hello kitty crop top making it so the soft flat of her stomachs flesh was pressed against it. Barefeet wiggling toes against the ground as her hands rested just on top the counters surface and shifted anxiously as she spoke quietly to herself.

"....okay...so you're cuddling Sean. No big deal, right? And you're gonna tell him the rest without 'Savvy' babbling like an idiot because he seems to want to know and that's good. Plus-he-just-opened-up-to-you-and-looked-so-sweet-doing-it-that-telling-him's-only-fair." she gushed nervously. Butterflies in her stomach feeling more like stampeding elephants. "...he's just so out of your league." she sighed quietly, pushing up onto her tip toes to reach for a glass and the bag of Doritos in a cupboard above.

A sheepish grin touched Sean's lips when Savannah poked fun at his ability to stuff food in his face. Sure he was the type to have a good stir fry meal to keep in shape after the gym but pushing junk food into his face was, he thought, part of the whole hacker culture. Plus there was plenty he wanted to do with his mouth when Savannah was around.

"Uh I'll go for a soda, love." Sean said as he was taking part in a gentle head butting competition with the ginger cat. His hand came up to ruffle its fur; fuzzling it as he sighed outwards. He could feel how soft the feline was but the only head he really wanted to pet at the moment was Savannah's.

He eyed the cat and gave a small shrug. "Gonna level with you Jenko. Your owner? Gives me heart palpitations. The good kind. Maybe if she actually just told me what she wanted instead of...I dunno....s'not really her fault. But I'd take care of her. Promise."

With the rather one sided conversation over Sean sort of wiggled away from the cat so as not to disturb him too much before he moved over to the kitchen and found Savannah reaching for the tall cupboard. With a smile he gently nudged her to one side and reached up himself to draw out a large glass, his tank top moving up enough for a glance of his abs before he held it out in front of her.

"Ok so. I ain't gonna wait for another soda run or a doorbell to get in the way. Just...tell me. I'm interested. What do you mean by 'polyamorous'." he said, not trying to sound impatient but he wasn't in the mood for the world to keep getting between them every time he tried to get an answer like some cartoon.

Glancing back over her shoulder to catch his smile, Savvy just kind of stared at him with her pretty green eyes and shook her head slightly with a smile of her own as she felt him nudge her and she stepped to the side. Slender frame turning her side to the counter. One forearm resting casually on it’s surface as she watched him reach up without any effort thanks to his height and grabbed the glass she’d been going for. Her eyes cutting down to that space where his shirt lifted up his abdomen and she could make out the corded muscle of his hips and that sexy ass, muscular V some guys had when they were ripped that all but acted like an arrow pointing dowwwwn.

Flicking her tongue through her lips as her eyes hopped back up as he spoke, Savvy took the offered glass. Setting it on the counter where she’d been leaning and brushed around his back as she went to the fridge for the soda. ”I only have rootbeer right now, is that okay? You want some ice?” She asked, pivoting her torso down just a little so she could rummage to the back of the shelf the soda was sitting on. Pulling it out along with a carton of strawberry milk.

”Shit, can you grab another?” She glanced at him, realizing her mistake of only getting the one glass down. Setting the rootbeer and pink milk on the counter, she’d grab the ice tray from the freezer if he wanted and put it all back. Walking back around behind him as she listened, Savvy did what just came natural to her. Getting comfortable in her own kitchen, she stood backward to the counter, pressed her palms into its edged and hopped herself up. Sitting on it right next to where he stood as she started to pour out the soda for him first.

Biting down on her lower lip as she considered what he was wanting to know and how best to explain it. A lot of people thought being poly meant just being in an open relationship but it wasn’t just about that at all. ”.... Well,” She said, pouring out her pink milk before lifting each of the glasses and offering Seans out to him. ”....being poly is, at the base level, about being in more than one committed relationship at a time. For me, it could be say a girlfriend and a boyfriend or a boyfriend and a boyfriend but it’s more than just being about being in an ‘open’ relationship that allows for the freedom to have sex with whoever it’s....”

And here, Savvy paused, glancing away from him and starring thoughtfully up at the ceiling as if she was seeing right through it and looking directly at the first stars of the evening. ”....okay,” Clearly getting her bearings. ”It’s like, many people think of the heart and love as an apple pie. You know? You give it away but there’s only so many slices before it’s gone so they limit it down to be shared just between two people. ..where as for me, as a poly, I think of love more like Pi. 3.14....it’s infinite. So I don’t limit myself to giving love to just one person but believe it’s possible to genuinely love and be with more than one person in intimate, committed relationships. I mean, at this point in my life I’ve never actually had more than one yet but that’s just because of how things play out. And that’s...that’s polyamorous. ”

Glancing down into the mouth of her glass, Savvy stared at the liquid surface of her strawberry milk. Her feet hanging off the counter swaying slightly. ”...which is why finding people to accept me for me can be difficult. Why I don’t date so much, at least not super seriously. Most people are more traditional, which is fine for them but it’s not who I am. Besides the fact I’m just kinda awkward” She laughed, trying to make light at herself.

"Oh. Rootbeer is fine, love. And I'll get that glass."

Once more Sean reached up to pluck a glass from the cupboard and set it down on the counter before he smiled across at Savannah with a sort of shy look on his face. He picked up the glass of root beer and sipped on the frothy, fizzy beverage before he placed the glass down and faced Savannah to give his friend the undivided attention this conversation deserved.

Sean wasn't sure what to make of Savannah's explanation. He found that people had different views and completely different ways of explaining what some words meant. In an age of all sorts of buzzwords Sean didn't really invest time into what they meant. It was only now that it became important; when it was about Savannah.

He had concerns and rightly so. It wasn't the social norm and for a man who flaunted the norm he could see possible issues. After all Sean was still a guy and males got jealous, possessive and territorial. It was embedded into their DNA. "Aren't you worried there might be issues. Drama? Y'know two guys getting a bit uppity because you're with one too much or...the like?"

He'd hate for Savannah and him to fall out over such a thing. He was supposed to be her friend and as such he worried about ways he could be less than stellar towards her. Yet he'd accept her. This was obviously more about love than sex. He'd be lying if Sean didn't assume it sounded like an open relationship but Savannah had corrected this and explained it was a lot more loving and nurturing than he first thought.
"And do you want me to be...one of your...boyfriends?" asked Sean in a tone that suggested mild interest more than concern as he stood up to slightly close the distance between them. "Cause you can ask me."
