I know you want some different prompts instead of baby ones even though they are so adorable when one of the girls watches the baby because Alison wants to get to know Emily and all the things she missed like the Haiti houses lol
this is so long and I don’t even know what happened but I loved this prompt so thank you so much!! I hope you like it xx
“ I have a game” Ali whispered as they sat under a willow tree, Emily crossed legged in front of her, their hands connected, their thumbs dancing around each other.
“we’re already playing a game” Emily pointed out as she took advantage of Ali’s distraction and squashed her thumb with her own. She smirked, pulling away as Ali teasingly crumpled her face in sadness.
“Okay. You won that one, but I have a better idea” Ali said, lying back down on the picnic blanket they had come with, looking out onto the silent lake that stretched out in front of them. The sky above sparkled with infinite stars, without even a cloud to disrupt them. Emily frowned as her girlfriend moved away from her, pouting a little from the distance. Ali raised her eyebrow, taking her hand and pulling her down so that her head rested softly in her chest, her hand softly stroking the top of Emily’s head. Emily sighed, content as Ali’s gentle breath raised and lowered her head.
“Okay” the brunette muttered warily, picking at a stray flower that sat lazily next to her. Ali chuckled as Emily reached up to kiss her deeply, her hands trailing the inside of Ali’s thigh, igniting a trail of desire across her skin and deep within her body. Reluctantly, however, she pulled away.
“I should warn you that it’s a little cold to be playing the kind of games you love so much, baby” Ali mumbled with a smirk.
“That’s never stopped us before” Em said with a frown, settling for curling into Ali’s chest as she wrapped a loving arm around her “sorry. What did you have in mind?” Ali shrugged.
“We haven’t played truth or dare for a while” she said in complete seriousness. Emily arched her eyebrows, desperately trying to hold back a laugh.
“Ali, I don’t think we’ve played truth or dare since we were 14” She laughed but, upon seeing Ali’s expression falter, quickly added “ask me anything” Ali grinned, kissing her lightly on the lips before continuing.
“I wanna hear everything” she said quietly, her eyes not breaking from Emily who suddenly became rather self-conscious.
“What do you mean?” She said “you know everything there is to know about me” For a reason she didn’t understand, Ali’s cheeks began to redden.
“I know everything there is to know about this Emily” she said “I wanna know everything I missed” Emily sighed heavily, rolling onto her side so that Ali could no longer examine her with her stare. Ali’s heart sank, and so she tentatively reached over, placing a hand on her shoulder.
“Hey” she said, sinking down to Emily’s level so they were face to face. Emily smirked, pecking her gently on the nose “how am I supposed to marry you if I don’t know every little detail?” Emily’s heart leapt as the ring that weighed down her finger suddenly became even heavier, and she couldn’t help but steal an admirable glance at it before replying.
“Fine” she said “but there isn’t that much to know. And I wanna hear about what I missed. When you were gone” Ali wanted to roll her eyes; those two years were really quite horrendous, and she was sure she had already told Emily all there was to know. Emily continued before Ali could refuse “that’s the deal. I’m not just gonna sit here and talk about myself all night” Ali chuckled.
“Fine” she agreed “but I’m going first” Together, they sat up again, leaning against the trunk of the tree.
“Shoot” Emily teased. Ali took a second to contemplate her first question, getting a little lost in the deep hazelnut pools of Emily’s eyes. Her mouth went a little dry.
“Tell me about Haiti” she said, recalling a previous passing comment from the first night they had bought their son home “you’ve never really talked about it before” Emily shrugged.
“It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life” she said honestly, her face lighting up “I- I don’t know, I guess I just find it so exhilarating to help people. Knowing that I made that much difference to somebody’s life made me realise that we could have had it a lost worse.” Ali said nothing as she watched the words fall out of her girlfriends mouth, fascinated by the passion that radiated out of her “it really helped me get my head away from-away from Maya” Emily visibly gulped “you know? It was just one of the best things I’ve ever done” Ali could sense the sadness now falling out of Emily as she stared intently at a spot of mud a few centimetres away.
“Tell me about her” Ali asked. Emily sighed.
“I thought it was one question each?” She said with a smile, breaking her gaze. Ali conceded with a tilt of her head as Emily grinned. “who did you lose your virginity too?” Emily asked. It had always been something she had wondered, obsessed over, even, but Ali had always shut it down.
“Really?” She asked “you’re going to make me say this out loud?” Emily wiggled her eyebrows.
“You can take a dare if you want. I have a lot of ideas for that” she said, suggestively letting her eyes wander across Ali’s body. Ali rolled her eyes.
“Em, you know I lost my virginity to you” She admitted sheepishly, her gaze dropping. Emily froze for a second, letting that process before she replied. Shaking her head, she sat up a little straighter.
“I didn’t know that” She said, a little ashamed “I mean, I know I’m the only girl you’ve ever slept with but I didn’t know you were a virgin when we-” She choked on her words. Even after all these years and everything they had been through they both still found it difficult to talk about that night in Ali’s bedroom all that time ago. “Why didn’t you tell me? I never would have-” Ali cut her off, taking her hand in hers.
“Don’t you dare” she said “don’t you dare take back that night. It was the most-it was the most important night of life. That and the night you said you would marry me” Ali laughed as Emily winked at her, trying to diffuse a little of the tension.
“What about Ian? Cyrus? Ezra?” Emily exclaimed.
“I told you, I never slept with any of them.”
“I thought you said that about Ezra just for Aria’s benefit” Emily confessed.
“No” Ali promised “I hardly touched them, except Cyrus- but he started getting angry when I wouldn’t go further- that’s why he started getting angry in the first place” She admitted.
“So me and Rollins are the only-?” She asked, confused. Ali shook her head lightly.
“No” she revealed “there were a few guys while you were gone. Nothing real just- you know, something to pass the time. And, you remember Lorenzo?” Emily scoffed, cringing at the memory.
“How could I forget?” Ali tutted.
“Please. I had to put up with Sabrina, Paige and Sara. I think I win” Emily nodded her head in defeat. Paige’s name still stung a little, getting caught at the back of her throat because she knew that Emily had lost her virginity to her. Not that it bothered her but, well, it bothered her.
“My turn” Ali broke the silence. Emily said nothing, waiting for her to ask the question “please. Tell me about Maya” Emily sighed as Ali rested her head on her shoulder. She hadn’t spoken about Maya in years.
“What do you want to know?” She said, a little more coldly than she intended. Softening her expression and tone, she apologised. “She was- everything I needed. She was smart, witty, caring, loyal, and kind. She was so so kind” Emily smiled regretfully.
“Did you love her?” Ali asked, her heart breaking a little at the sadness that was still present in Emily even after all this time.
“Yeah” Emily admitted “yeah I did. She was everything” Ali gulped, reaching up to place a tender kiss on Emily’s cheek. “she was everything except you” Emily told her. Ali smiled softly.
“You don’t have to say that” She said “it’s my own fault for leaving you” Emily shook her head.
“We got over this years ago, Ali. I forgave you years ago” For a moment they sat in comfortable silence, Ali waiting until Emily asked her another question. She breathed heavily, sitting up.
“How did you stay away?” Emily shattered the silence “how did you manage to keep a distance” Ali frowned.
“I thought you just said you had forgiven me” Emily chuckled.
“I have. I’m just curious” Ali pursed her lips.
“I didn’t actually stay away for very long” She confessed with a grin “it took me about three months before I gave in and came to watch you swim” Emily blushed. “I missed my little mermaid” Emily rolled her eyes, but secretly her heart soared at the use of her nickname that rarely escaped Alison#s lips.
“We left you a seat. At every meet” Ali nodded, tracing patterns on the back of Emily’s hand as she spoke.
“I know” She said “I wish I could’ve used them, but I had to settle for the alleyway behind school where the bins were, peeping in through the little window” Emily grinned.
“You should’ve come and said hello” she teased. Ali smiled nostalgically.
“Your safety was so much more important to me.” Emily nodded in understanding “I loved you too much to show myself to you. It would’ve risked everything.”
“I know” Em clarified, softly tucking a piece of hair behind her eye. For a while, they sat throwing more and more questions at each other, until, in the distance, they could hear an owl wake up, causing Emily to groan in annoyance. As the hours had dragged on, they had ended up almost falling asleep, tangled in each other’s arms.
“Baby” Ali said, trying to shake Emily awake “Em” She tried again, pulling the blanket off of her “Emily!” She said one more time. Emily pried open her eyes.
“What?” She mumbled groggily.
“We need to go, it’s almost midnight. The girls have had the baby for almost 7 hours” Emily moaned, dragging the blanket back over herself. Ali sighed, leaning over her to whisper in her ear.
“They need the practise” She mumbled almost incoherently.
“If you get up now” Ali propostioned “you can dare me to do whatever you want when we get home” she teased as the hairs on the back of Emily’s neck stood up. She smirked, placing a kiss on Ali’s lips.
“I’m awake” she said “I am so, so awake”
