Freezing Cold Part 2
You’d slept with your boss every night for a week. Okay, no. That was the complete wrong way to put that. You were not sleeping with him, you were sleeping next to him. In the same bed. Under the same covers. And you had yet to discuss it in the slightest.
You’d confided in Emily first thing the following morning and now all week you could feel her eyes on you every time you were so much as in the same room as Hotch. You suspected she told JJ as well, because you seemed to be on the constant receiving end of her motherly knowing looks. Even Dave seemed to be paying extra attention to the two of you.
But now the case was wrapped up (with a relatively happy ending), and you all were staying one more night and you were itching to say something, anything to him, so you were more the happy to have everyone said goodnight before heading back to their respective rooms, planning on getting on the plane by 9 the next morning.
Hotch unlocked the door and let you go in first and suddenly you were far too aware of the fact that this was quite possibly your last chance to talk about what was happening. At the same time you were worried that if you articulated what was going on it would be ruined.
“Shower?” Hotch asked shutting the door and you smiled slightly, shaking your head.
“Nah, not much happened today, I showered yesterday, I’m just tired. Unless you think I’m going to be too stinky to sleep with..” You joked slightly, good. Smooth. Slowly breach the subject, at least now it was outloud. Hotch chuckled and shook his head.
“I’m sure I’ll manage. I’m however going to at least shave and wash off.” You nodded in understanding and watched him to gather his shower supplies, waiting to hear the water turn on before turning around and starting to get ready for bed yourself.
You quickly tugged off your sweater you’d word out today, along with your work slack, tossing them over a chair before pulling on a pair of sleep pants and looking around for a clean…ish shirt. You were standing the the middle of the room frowning when the bathroom door opened.
“Did you see my- oh. Oh (Y/N) sorry.” Hotch flushed, immediately putting a hand over his eyes, “I left my bath towel.” You felt your own cheeks flush but bit your lip, shaking your head.
“Ho- Aaron, come on it’s fine.” You shrugged, grabbing a clean towel housekeeping left you and walking up to him, laughing and pulling his hand from his eyes with a slight smirk. “Come on, we’re not in junior high, I’m sure you’ve seen a woman in her bra before.” Aaron averted his eyes and took the towel.
“Well not.. You.” He answered lamely and you smiled slightly. This was it. Go big or go home, right?
“We’ve shared a bed all week.. With two beds in the room. I’m sure if I minded all that much I would have said something.” Aaron blinked at you, surprised.
“Sorry, maybe I miss read that situation.” You gave a small shrug, using a similar phrase that he used the first evening.
“No I just-” He paused slightly and set the towel on the desk, moving closer, “Just, tell me to stop if you want me to stop.” He grinned, one hand going to cup your cheeks, the other resting on your bare waist as his lips quickly found your own. Your hands went up to rest firmly on his chest, clutching the material of his shirt slightly to keep his body close to your’s. You kissed long and sweet for a while before Aaron pulled back grinning still, “Did I read that situation wrong?”
“No I think you had that one fully under control.” You laughed, patting his chest, “So this bed thing.. Not a one time thing?”
“I sure hope not. I have to admit… I’ve already become slightly used to having you close to me. I had to remind myself all day not to just.. Touch you for the sake of being close. Not to mention you in my sweatshirt was driving me insane.” He winked, and you laughed easily, a heavy weight lifting from your chest.
“Go shower.” You patted his chest again, giving a playful push towards the bathroom, but Aaron smirked, grabbing your wrists and pulling you with him.
“Join me? After all I don’t want you stinking up the bed.”
