After his nice little chat with Mary, Johnny secured the keys to his favorite suite and headed on up with his luggage. It was an excellent room and over the course of the weekend, he planned on letting Savannah take advantage of the pole. He was such a thoughtful boyfriend.

Tossing his bag, he headed towards the mini bar and poured himself a glass of whiskey before he settled on the sofa to call his girl.

"Hey babe. I'm in my... your favorite room at The Arms. Don't make me wait too long, sweetheart."

With a sly, somewhat quirky grin, Johnny stared at the pole and envisioned a half dressed Savannah using it for his pleasure.

Ah, life was good.

Savannah had been at work when she got the call from Johnny. Laughing, she hung up the phone and then let Sean know she was heading out early. After heading back to the dorms to get a change or two of clothes, she arrived at the room. She knocked lightly on the door.

"In here, babe," he said from his place on the small sofa. He was anxious to see her, but he liked to appear calm, cool, and collected. Whiskey helped with that.

That's okay, Savannah could be as not collected as she wanted to be. She opened the door, and after closing it behind her, came to the edge of the sofa. She was smiling.

"Hey love."

Johnny gazed slowly up, taking in everything about her, before his eyes met hers. "Hey, gorgeous," he said low, his eyes a brilliant blue. "Miss me much?"

"Mmmhmm," she said with a smile. Seeing Johnny helped push the things she had been worried about to the back of her mind. "I did. Have you missed me?"

But Johnny knew her so well, and he would ask her how things have been going. But not just yet. Right now he was enjoying the view of her here, in person, far too much. "More than you could fathom." While holding eye contact, he took a swallow of whiskey before setting his glass aside. "Can I get you something to drink?" He stood slowly, now staring down into her upturned face.

She smiled, nodding her head as she looked up at him. "Water or soda will be fine for now, Johnny." She did not need alcohol right now because that would lead to talking and him worrying.

That's what he was here for. He liked to think he was her rock. Not that he would ever want to sound like Ben in admitting so, but Savannah knew it all the same. He reached up to cup her chin and caressed back and forth with his thumb before leaning forward to kiss her softly. "Get comfy."

It took him only a moment to fix her a glass of ice water.

Savannah knew he was and didn't need to be told. She knew he'd be there any time she needed him to be. She curled up on the sofa, watching him as he fixed the glass.

"How have things been for you?"

From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
"Nothing ever changes," he replied, handing her the chilled glass as he seated himself comfortably near her. "My pranks on Ben are getting old. I need some new ones." Said oh so seriously too.

"How have things been here for you, sweetheart?"

Savannah tucked her feet beneath her as she played with her glass for a moment. "I'm sure that you could talk to Isabel and she'd give you some ideas for new pranks?" She took a drink from the glass. "Chris might be willing to help, too."

Look how she was managing to avoid the question and still find out about his happiness.

He gave her a lopsided grin. "Excellent idea. Isabel's sure to have a few I've yet to try. Chris too." It's been far too long since he's spoken to either one.

Her evasiveness worked too, but probably not long enough to please her.

"How've you been, baby?" he asked gently, eyes searching her face.

Date: 2010-03-13 02:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
Yeah, she hadn't figured that it would last very long.

"I've been all right," she finally said. "Really. Just a discussion in class this week brought up some issues I thought I had successfully buried deeply, never to be seen again." She shrugged. "Nothing major, love, really."

Date: 2010-03-13 02:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
"Except that I can see in your eyes that this nothing major is bothering you," he said, still in quiet tones. He reached out with his arm, moving it around her to rest along the edge of the sofa.

"Want to talk about it?"

Date: 2010-03-13 02:22 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
She leaned her head on his shoulder.

"It was a discussion on how so many tenets of belief say that we're supposed to honor our parents and respect our elders. The thing is... I respect my mother and Sean a whole damn lot, but no one in my father's family. I don't think that just because you're older you can demand respect without doing enough to earn it first... and no one in my father's side of the family have done anything to earn my respect or make me want to honor them at all."

From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
"You're right in that, sweetheart. Respect is earned. Gained. Much like trust." He kissed her temple, spoke there quietly against her skin. "I think in the beginning honor and respect are naturally there. It's what we learn as we grow that affects it. Tell me you're not feeling guilty with your feelings over this."

Date: 2010-03-13 02:49 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
She shook her head slightly, enjoying him holding her like this. "Oh hell know. I just hated that coming up and serving as a reminder of the fact that I'm going to have to face them sooner or later."

Something he was not looking forward to himself. "They know about you coming to New York yet?"

Date: 2010-03-13 02:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
"None of their damn business," she growled.

Date: 2010-03-13 03:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
Johnny couldn't help but grin at that growl of hers. "That's my girl."

But he knew they would have to be told, and be told firmly. If not, he worried about what they would try to force on her.

"You have me and the team, anytime you need us. You know that. Not to mention your mom, Sean, Isabel, Chris, Wyatt and I'm certain a slew of others. I'm not good with you worrying, Savannah."

Date: 2010-03-13 03:07 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
She pulled back so she could look him in the eyes. "I know that I do, and I promise, I'm not really worrying. I was just thinking about it and thinking about graduation and how things would have to be faced is all. I can't hide from them forever."

Date: 2010-03-13 03:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
"No, you can't. But babe, while none of their business and despite the fact that I'd like nothing better than to kick all their asses, the sooner the better I'm thinking." He shrugged. "Wouldn't be hanging over you, you know?"

His hand fell to her shoulder, pulled her in closer. "Did you talk about any of this in class?"

Date: 2010-03-13 03:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
"I figured I'd send them a telegram from New York after the fact?" Yes, she had thought about doing that with the Pack, too, but oh she so knew better.

She shook her head. "Not really, I mean, sorta." She sighed. "My friend, Karla, and I both had our reasons why we didn't think that was always right. We didn't go into a lot of detail, but we were vocal in how we thought."

Date: 2010-03-13 03:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
He quirked a brow at her. "Why do I feel like they'd pluck you away from there so fast my head would spin?"

There was a slight nod from him. "I don't see how it could be that way all the time. There are people out there who are born assholes and die assholes."

Date: 2010-03-13 03:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
"They would probably try, but the Nasts don't want to piss off the Cortezes or the Pack." They would probably try though. "I plan to call Paige and Elena this next week to tell them I got in to the art school. They both knew I was applying, and Elena and Paige are reasonable and know how much we love each other."

"Good. Hopefully they'll smooth the pathway and it'll go easier for you," he said, brow crinkling in slight consternation. If any of them gave her hell, he was more than prepared to deal with them. In fact, he might welcome the chance. Johnny's wanted to tear into a couple of them on more than one occassion.

Date: 2010-03-13 02:49 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
She met his eyes steadily. "Johnny, whether my family accepts this decision or not, whether the Cabals leave me alone or not, none of that is going to change my mind. This is what I want. You are my future. Art school in New York is my choice and my desire."

Date: 2010-03-13 04:30 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
He held her gaze. "I know that, sweetheart. I just can't abide the crap you're most likely going to get for your decision."

Date: 2010-03-13 04:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
She reached up to caress his cheek with her fingers. "Like I can't abide that you may get crap about it, too?"

Date: 2010-03-13 06:08 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
"Don't worry about me, sweetheart. You know I can handle it," he said, giving her a sly grin. He might even be looking forward to it, not that he would lay claim to that out loud. "And before you say it, I know you can too. But it's me looking after you. Right?" Damn straight.

Date: 2010-03-13 06:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
Savannah was learning to pick her battles, and she knew that it made Johnny feel better if he was looking after her.

"I know you can handle it, love. I know you can." But don't think she wouldn't try her damnedest to make sure that he wouldn't have to deal with it. "Yes, you're looking after me."

Date: 2010-03-14 02:29 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fantastic-torch.livejournal.com
Johnny gave her a small smile, eyes taking in the beauty of her face. "I can't wait to have you with me. I miss this place, but mainly because you're still here."

Date: 2010-03-14 02:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com
"We only have a few more months, sweetheart, not much can happen in a few months," She smiled up into his face. "And then I'll be with you as long as you want me to be."
