Colin woke up before Rory on the Sunday morning and enjoyed taking the opportunity to survey her while she was asleep, her body curled into him, her head splayed across his chest using him as a pillow, with one leg hooked over his hips. Her face was relaxed in sleep, making her look younger than she was. Colin lay there thinking as she slept, he thought this weekend had been amazing and he wanted it to continue, and not just as a trial. Part of him was scared that Rory would wake up and say thanks but no thanks, that she had enjoyed the weekend but wanted it to be a one time thing. But the other side of him had watched her carefully all weekend, she was just as quick as him to initiate all contact, she had defended him to his friends and even told him that she thought he was hot and special. At this point he wasn't sure how well he would take it if she wanted to go back to being just friends, yet he knew he would do anything she asked, he just wanted her to be happy. Colin heard her make a little sigh of contentment and thought it was the best sound ever.

Rory started to stir moving slowly once she realised where she had slept, she moved her head to look up at Colin, only to see his eyes open already and looking down at her.

"Hey," she whispered.

"Morning sleepyhead," Colin said, brushing his lips against her forehead.

"Still sleep okay?" she asked, her hand subconsciously running up and down the length of his chest.

"Yep, great night's sleep." Colin said, watching her again, to see when she would realise what she was doing, if she would, he certainly had no intention of stopping her as he was enjoying the feeling. "Did you have a good night?"

"It was a lot of fun, the food in that restaurant was amazing. Do I even want to know how you guys find these places?"

"Well last night was all Logan, he has all kinds of contacts so sometimes it really is best not to ask. My friends didn't scare you off? They were all on their best behaviour."

"No they didn't scare me off at all, they were a little protective of you but almost in an insulting way, which annoyed me, but I know they were really just looking out for your best interests. Hopefully I passed all of their tests." Rory answered, looking up at Colin carefully for his reaction.

"I think you passed all the tests, no one told me otherwise at least, although I'm not so certain I would believe them anyway, especially with how commitment phobic all the guys are," Colin replied, kissing her forehead again.

"So…" Rory said, glancing away from Colin.

"So?" Colin repeated questioningly.

"I erm, I mean, I think we agreed that we needed to have a talk at some point today. I wasn't sure if you want to get it over with or if you want to wait until we are about to leave," Rory said, anxiously.

"Erm, I guess we could get it over with unless you think we both came to different conclusions because that would be awkward and should maybe be left until we are at least caffeinated." Colin said, looking down at her, where she was still laying across his chest but no longer looking up at him.

"I think I'm actually willing to take the risk and have this conversation uncaffeinated," Rory replied, looking up at him while biting her lip.

"Okay, I'll go first?" Colin asked, looking at her, seeing her nod her head in agreement with him, he brushed his lips across her forehead again. "Actually before I start can I do one thing?" Rory looked at him in confusion before signalling her agreement and starting to move off him, as she assumed he needed to get up, he pulled her gently back to him.

"No, you don't need to go anywhere," he said, before lowering his head and capturing her lips in a kiss while one hand cupped her cheek,and the other her hip. The kiss started off as gentle, lips lightly brushing against each other before his tongue was sweeping across her bottom lip asking for entrance, which she rapidly granted, their tongues battled for dominance before giving up and simply massaging each other. By the time they parted they were both panting for breath leaning against each other's foreheads.

"I had to do that one last time, in case you don't let me do it again," Colin said, his thumb running across her swollen bottom lip, to caress her cheek.

"Well I was kinda hoping that I would get to do that everyday," Rory answered, bashfully, not meeting his eyes in her uncertainty.

"Really?" Colin exclaimed, tipping her face so she had to look at him.

Rory just nodded in response.

"You want to be my girlfriend for real?" Colin questioned, shocked that he seemed to be getting what he hoped.

"Yes, this weekend, actually the whole time since we met in August, but especially this weekend, has been amazing. It's like I told your friends, you are hot, considerate, giving, smart, one of my best friends and your kisses are amazing. Colin, you make me feel alive, this weekend, yesterday, you showed how well you know me, you managed to take me to do things I love but have never mentioned to you. I don't know how I could turn you down after that," Rory finished her impassioned speech, then she realised that Colin hadn't responded to her at all. "Unless your answer for how the weekend went, was not going to be the same, then we can go back to being just friends but I might be embarrassed around you for a while," Rory rambled out hastily, starting to move away from Colin as she was still positioned across his torso on the bed.

Colin, seeing what she was trying to do, tightened his grip on her hip, "No stay there, I like you there." He waited until she had resettled beside him before he started talking again. "Leigh," he kissed her forehead, "This weekend was amazing, I got to see all my best friends, and I got a taste of what it would be like to have my best friend become something more. I don't think I could go back. Leigh, you make life better, you even manage to make boring society functions enjoyable, and I didn't think that was possible. You are gorgeous, I can barely keep my hands off you, I'm not sure if you have noticed but I always need to be touching you in some way. You make me want to be a better person for you, and I don't need to put any airs or graces on for you. So Leigh, will you be my girlfriend, for real?" Colin finally got the question out, studying her face closely for her reaction, he watched the emotions flit across her face while keeping a tight clasp on her hip and her hand.

Rory looked up at Colin, she moved so she was sitting further up, her palm resting on his chest, just beside his heart, which should almost feel beating rapidly beneath her fingertips. She leaned in and kissed him with such enthusiasm that he was taken aback at first, but he quickly regained his composure, and reminded himself of what was happening; he was really kissing her, she was really kissing him, they were doing this, and the world around them was meaningless.

Nothing could have possibly meant more than them, nothing could have more beauty than this moment: those small hands pressed into his chest, the way her round eyes fluttered to a close. She fit into him like a glove, her kiss soft until it became addictive. He was falling fast, craving her scent and the feel of her so close to him, unsure where he ended and she began. He had never been more grateful to have life until now. He would have rather walked into hell again and again than lose this: her entrancing eyes, her captivating smile against his lips, her laugh when he did something stupid, her hair and how it fell over her shoulder when she looked at him.

"I don't want to take anything for granted but was that a yes?" Colin asked, in between pants for breath as they parted.

"It's a yes!" Rory answered, as Colin leaned in and kissed her again, rolling them so she was beneath him, as he rested his weight on his arms, looking down at her flushed face, swollen lips, he felt proud that he was the one that had made her look like that. His thumb caressed her cheek tenderly as he lowered his head again, murmuring "You have made me so happy."


A/N- yes it's short but the choice was a short chapter today or no more until the weekend. So that's 3 chapters in 3 days and they are finally together. Next Chapter probably won't be posted until Saturday. Hopefully you are all happy with how these 3 ended up.
