Bare feet slipped through the window with the first ray of sunlight. A shadow slinked around the room of a noblewoman, embellished by trinkets reminiscent of her recently departed girlhood. The intruder loomed over the sleeping young woman's back, face masked in shadow... his clothes hit the floor and he slipped under the sheets with her.

The man very carefully snaked his arm under the girl's neck and nuzzled his head on her shoulder. Hmmgh. No. He clicked his tongue and shuffled, nudging her gently to roll onto her back. Eventually he found a comfortable position with his head resting on his hand as he looked at her. He wiped the drool coming from the corner of her mouth with the blanket and smoothed out her bed hair.

The woman's eyes fluttered open, awoken by a series of kisses on her shoulder. "Mmmm..." she hummed and rolled around to see her lover. An elegant, narrow featured man with grey eyes set against tawny brown skin. Naeem Jaqil, or, as he knew himself, Jai Hawkins - or, as she knew him, Jesper Jones. He looked back at her with the soft admiration that made one feel that for this moment, all his thoughts were devoted to you.

"Good morning, gorgeous," he said, finger trailing in a circle on her shoulder. She giggled and rubbed the sleep from her eyes.

"How long have you been awake for?"

The adoration on his face was tinged by melancholy. "I didn't want to wake you. You're beautiful when you sleep... the way you snore, just like an angel-" "You bastard!" She batted a limp fist against his chest as he grinned. He took her hand, and his jests simmered. "... When you woke up, our last night together would be over. That's why."

The woman's brow creased. "Oh, Jesper, don't talk of that... we still have the morning, please." She snuggled into him, shutting out the impending future as she squeezed her eyes closed. "Please stay with me."

He looped his arm around her, but over her shoulder, he glanced with annoyance at the rising sun from the window.

Several minutes later, she was in tears as she handed him his bags. "My father's room is down the hall," she stressed, "Please be careful, he'll kill you if he were to find you here! Jesper..." she pressed her hands into his chest, "You will come back for me, won't you? Promise me again."

Jai smiled down at her, as one might do at a puppy jumping up at their legs, and wrapped an arm around her waist as he dipped her into a kiss. Her heart pounded as she was almost swept off her feet and was pushed back until she felt she might topple. "Of course," he lied. "Last night was the best of my life. I'll never forget it," he may or may not have lied, and slipped out the door, kissing her right up until it separated them.

Jai's smile changed when the door was shut. His eyes slid to the door down the hall. With a deep breath, he shook himself and rolled his neck in preparation. He crept down the hall, not disturbing a single floorboard, past ... into the room of the man of the house.

His clothes dropped. He slipped under the sheets.

The nobleman rolled over, stirred by a flurry of kisses on the shoulder.

"Good morning, handsome," Jai greeted him softly. The nobleman, big as a bear, blushed.

"I - I didn't think you would stay."

Jai pulled a false pout. His eyes glimmered with amusement.

"What kind of man do you think I am?"
