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....
