THE NEXT STEP: Sonny & Davis

Chapter 11: You Are Trouble

Sonny was woken suddenly when he heard "Nooo!" shouted next to him and felt Davis quickly sit up in bed.

'Shit! Davis, night terror' came to his mind.

He sat up and put his hand on her back, she was breathing heavy, too heavy and trying to catch her breath.

'She's having a panic attack'.

Sonny leaned forward so he could see her face, tucking her hair behind her ear. In the darkness, all he could tell was that she was staring straight ahead, her eyes open wide, and her hands were clasped around handfuls of the sheets.

In a calm, even toned voice Sonny tried to bring her out of this attack.

"Davis breath, nice and slow."

No change, so he crawled in front of her, looked her in the eyes and grabbed her hands.

"Breath, I'm here with you, your okay, just breath."

She blinked, but still couldn't catch a full breath.

"LISA, listen to my voice."

He brought her hands to lay on his bare chest.

"Breath with me, feel my breathing? In and out, nice and slow."

This worked and her breathing started to match his and she was able to look at him.

"Good job, breath in and out."

After a couple minutes, she started to breath normally and her body relaxed.

"Wow, sorry." She said quietly and blinked a few times.

"Hey, don't sweat it, I understand." He soothed calmly.

A small smile crept on her face "Thank you." she said as she leaned forward and hugged Sonny as best as she could while they both had their legs crossed in front of them.

"That has never happened to me before." She sated confused and sat back to be able to see his face.

"You had a panic attack. You screamed no and sat straight up from your sleep." He said keeping his voice calm

"Do you remember what you were dreaming about?" He asked.

Davis bit her bottom lip and looked down at her hands in her lap.

Sonny waited a beat to see if she would answer him.

"I don't want to talk about it, but I should. Can we just go back to sleep and talk about it later?" She asked and looked up at him.

"Nope." He shook his head "You need to talk about this, no more putting it off." He stated and kissed her on her forehead. "Besides, we have been sleeping for too long." He smiled.

Davis looked back at her night stand and saw the clock said 10:00 AM.

"Wow it's late, I don't remember the last time I slept this long." She looked back at him and smiled.

"Me either" Sonny said "I usually don't sleep this long either, must have been the bed." He said, trying to keep a straight face.

"Oh, not who was in bed with you?" Davis asked, with her eye brows raised challenging him.

Sonny chuckled, "Nope, definitely the bed and these sheets are such great quality." He said sarcastically, as he got up from the bed.

"The sheets!" She exclaimed, with a huge smile on her face "What do you know about sheet quality?" She asked and chuckled.

"I know enough." He replied sassily "I'm going to make some coffee and then we're having a chat." He said as he left the room.

Ugh!" Davis exclaimed and fell back on the bed.

'Since when is Sonny a talker?' she asked herself 'This should be interesting'

Lisa was coming out of the bathroom as Sonny entered the bedroom with two cups of coffee.

He handed her one "Sugar and cream" he said with a wink, and went around to the opposite side of the bed.

Lisa smiled her thanks and took a sip. "Hum, that is good." She said with her eyes closed.

When she opened them, she caught Sonny standing there looking down body. 'probably undressing me with his eyes' shesmiled.

She was wearing a camisole top and a pair of tight cotton shorts, she quickly ran a brush through her hair when she was in the bathroom and left it down around her shoulders.

"Sonny" She said softly with amusement.

His eyes slowly to come back up to meet hers.

"Huh?" He grunted.

She hid her smile behind her cup of coffee.

"See anything you like?" She boldly asked as she stared at him.

He stared back and a huge grin appeared on his face as he nodded 'yes' slowly.

He was practically drooling and she loved it. She was feeling sassy and his stare was intense.

Davis took him in. His broad shoulders, muscular chest and abdomen were bare and he had on a bare of boxer briefs, black and….

'WOW! Wait his soldier friend was standing at attention. Shit that is hot!' She thought and licked her lips to keep from drooling herself.

"Davis…. see anything YOU like?" He returned her question seriously.

When she looked up to meet his eyes, she realized the sexual tense between the two of them, across the bed, was thick and hot.

They both, simultaneously, put their cups on the nightstands and crawled across the bed on their knees towards each other.

They met in the middle with a hot opened mouth kiss and wrapped their arms around one another to bring their bodies as close as possible.

The kisses only stopped briefly for Sonny to take Davis's shirt off and throw it away.

"Trouble Davis, you are trouble!" He groaned before kissing her again.
