She shrugged. ”Just… somewhere outside of Boston I guess? I’ve never really been on a vacation before,” she told him, because it was the truth. The only time she’d been out of Vegas was when she and Dylan flew here, and both of her trips to LA had been dramaful, so she didn’t count them. She knew all she had to do was ask, that Miles would take her on one of his press trips if she really wanted to, but she was tired of burdening her older brother. He’d given her so much growing up, and he deserved his moment in the sun without her hanging on his coattails. She knew he would insist she wasn’t a bother if it ever came up, so she kept these thoughts to herself. ”Maybe we could spend a couple days at the beach or something?”
He’d never been anywhere either, at least not for fun. He’d gone with Aubrey to Los Angeles, but that hadn’t been a vacation by any means. As Aubrey mentioned the beach, images of her in a bikini with golden honey skin permeated his mind and all he wanted to do was get her naked, sprawled out beneath him so he could hear her pant his name. “I think we could definitely do the beach. We should go to Florida, maybe go to Disney World or Universal,” he suggested. He’d always wanted to go to one of those places when he was younger and since he had quite a bit of money saved up… He wasn’t a completely idiot and though he did spend a decent amount of money getting high, he still had enough money saved up to do something worth mentioning.
Aubrey was all smiles as she let go of his hand and let him put his arm around her. She’d never realized how much she actually wanted a boyfriend, but once she and Lukas had made it official, she’d been a lot happier. There was the drama with Dylan, of course, but even that had calmed down significantly, because her brother ultimately just wanted her to be happy, and he could see that she was. “Well you know I’m not going to be the one to complain about that,” she told him, sliding her arm around his waist too. “We should go somewhere this summer. Just me and you, for a little vacation away from here,” she mused, thinking of a weekend trip to the Cape or down to New York City, nothing huge, just something where the two of them could be with one another.
Before Aubrey, Lukas had never seen himself as the settle down type, either. Whatever had happened between the before and the now? Lukas wouldn’t change a single moment. He wouldn’t trade his feelings for anything else in the world. “Yeah? Did you have some place in mind?” He asked her, his fingers absentmindedly playing with the ends of her hair where he had his arm draped around her shoulders.
"You always have the best plans… does that come with being a super genius or is it something you were born with?" she teased, squeezing his hand as they started off down the sidewalk towards the neighborhood he lived in. It was a pretty decent walk, but it was a nice day out, and really, she could think of a lot of things that were much worse than holding Lukas’ hand and taking a walk outside. "Are you sure about going down on me though? I thought we were going to be careful after your mom walked in on us last time?"
"It comes with being a super, mega genius." He winked at her, his long fingers lacing with hers. Sometimes, he felt really fucking lucky that she was with him and other times, he wondered what the hell she saw in him to stick around this long. "I don’t care, it’s been too long and I have a craving for an Aubrey afternoon snack," he responded as he kissed her cheek and lifted his arm around her shoulders. Thankful for the semi decent weather. With the cold slowly filtering out, the days were far more bearable than they’d been during the winter months. Oddly enough, Spring was Lukas’ favorite season.
Even though it had only been a day and a half since she’d last seen her boyfriend, a huge grin spread across her face as Lukas approached, and she melted against him before moving her arms around his neck. ”Hi handsome… I missed you,” she told him, and once he’d finished kissing her neck, she moved in to kiss his lips slowly, not in any hurry at all to stop, even though in the back of her mind she knew she had to be mindful of the time. ”So what are we doing? Trying to take over the world?” she asked with a raised eyebrow as she pulled back from the kiss, slipping her hand in his so he could lead the way back to his parents’ house.
As her arms found their place around him, Lukas couldn’t quiet the smile on his lips as she did so. There was something about Aubrey that always felt like home to him - something so warm and familiar, he couldn’t quite place his finger on what it was. He returned her kiss, his mouth moving slowly against hers as a quiet, easy sigh slid through him.”We’re going to take over the world, duh! No, we’re going back to my house and you’re going to cuddle with me and let me go down on you after I give you your present.” He dips his head to press a soft kiss to the side of her head as he guides her out of the train station.
The train ride had taken ages, drawn out because Lukas had mentioned a surprise and she’d lost service the moment they’d gone underground, so it’d just been her and her ipod on the way to the Moriarty’s stop. Thankfully, the ride wasn’t ACTUALLY that long, so twenty minutes after she’d told him she was getting on the train, Aubrey was walking out of the turnstyle and looking around the station for her boyfriend.
Meeting Aubrey at the train station was no big deal to him. He actually liked being able to do things like that for her; be there when she needed him to be. It made him feel wanted and needed. He had his hands in his pockets as he heard the train approaching and five minutes later his gaze was settling on her - a smile lighting up his features as he slowly moved to approach her. Not missing the way she seemed to be looking for him. “Hey beautiful,” he speaks low, dipping his head to brush his mouth over the gentle curve of her neck where he’s able to find her skin.
