Prompt: Alex's first hickey
It hadn’t dawned on her at the time. Why would it have? A beautiful woman’s lips had been roaming around her body; her mind was understandably elsewhere when it had happened. Yet, when she woke up and looked in the mirror, she saw it, instantly.
A hickey. Her first ever hickey.
Well, maybe not. There was also a similar mark on the inside of her right thigh and she wasn’t sure which one occurred first.
‘Wear it with pride, Danvers.’
Alex ran fingers over the mark and sighed. ‘It’s noticeable, isn’t it?
Maggie stepped forward and wrapped strong arms around Alex’s waist. ‘C’mon, you really think that someone would dare give Alex Danvers a hard time over a hickey?’
‘It’s not that, it’s…’
Maggie filled in the blanks as she remembered the girl she had just started dating had one foot still firmly in the closet. ‘Oh.’
‘And I’d have to make up some imaginary guy and that wouldn’t feel right. I don’t want to lie, not about you. What sort of girlfriend would that make me?’
‘One that isn’t fully out yet and that’s okay.’ Her hold on Alex tightened. ‘Lying about me won’t hurt my feelings. I understand, Alex and I don’t want you to have to come out any earlier than you have to.’
‘Yeah,’ Maggie smiled. ‘But, c’mon Alex. So what if anyone says anything about a little bruise? You’ve got an amazing sex life.’
‘I do…how times change, right?’
‘Right.’ Maggie’s smiled developed into something a little less innocent and a little more teasing and her lips started to wander, again.
‘Don’t you dare. I can deal with one visible hickey, that’s all, okay?’
Maggie sighed. ‘Fine.’
