happy now

It was mud baths at the People of the Earth festival. Thank God, the rains came or Gemma was pretty sure she might be stuck in the mud somewhere.

Honestly, when they got the motel room which was Shou's idea, Gemma thought she was in heaven. Except there was Monty to share it with.

"Its like a honeymoon." Monty was all grins and waiting for her when she got out of the shower.

She knew he had to be a bit crazy, but she guessed she liked crazy. Possibly, everyone was fitting in now. She guessed. And really she was happy even if she hated to admit it.

He patted down the place next to him on the bed.

"Come on, we'll watch the tele." He tuned in to the cartoons.

Gemma crossed her arms. He giggled a bit putting his arm around her and the damp towel.

"What's your favorite show?" Monty wanted to know.

"I don't have one." She told him.

"Come on, there has to be something you've been missing on the tube."


"Not the Eastenders? Waterloo Road? Skins?"

She shut her eyes and shrugged. He kissed her lips then.

"You just want a full body massage, don't you?" He laughed softly in her ear then. As always he captivated her as he looked at her.

"What is it about me? Anyway? That you like me?" She was curious.

"You're so sensuous." There came that grin again she wanted to keep at bay. The one where he looked a bit mental, but she supposed he was a genius with the keyboard.

"But is that enough?" She winced with a sigh.

He looked at her rather serious then as if he hadn't thought of it before.

Gemma placed her hands around his. She really hated the thought of when it might be over. It would make her gloomy to think of the day. Possibly sometime soon when they said their goodbyes. There would be no reason to keep in touch, she supposed.

She gave him a quick kiss, but one was never enough for Monty. He'd see to that massage and then some. He always did even with the tele on.

Sorry about the spacing, the computer did it automatically and I didn't have enough time to fix it. But Now I did. Maybe Gemma should look on the bright side of things..
