Authors Notes: - Yeah, yeah, I could have finished this sooner, considering how short this 'chapter' is. Oh well!

John closed the door and slumped against it with a relieved sigh. He'd never been happier to be home. The store bags he carried were laden with lacy and silky garments; he only hoped Rave liked them. He pushed off the door and headed upstairs, to the room Rave stayed in. It was one of the guest rooms. After they'd started dating she took it over. Mostly because she hated how dark and smoky his basement was.

He paused outside the door, took a deep breath and opened it. Rave looked up from the bed where she was reading a fashion magazine. She was no longer wearing the pink lacy getup from before and now just had on a comfy cotton t-shirt and cotton boy shorts.

"You're back." She said with a smile and rolled off the bed.

John quickly walked up to her and wrapped his arms around her. She giggled and cuddled into him. "You went out with Seth, didn't you?"

"How can you tell?" He asked warily.

She shrugged with a playful smile. "You always just act so eager after you've spent some time with him."

"That's just because I can't wait to see you again." John sulked, and then held up the bags. "I uh… got you some stuff."

Rave squealed with glee and snatched up the bags. She upended them onto the bed and began sifting through what he bought. He watched with an affectionate smile. She giggled madly when she located the crotchless panty hoes and leered at John.

"I didn't know you liked these."

He blushed and shrugged. "I think… panty hoes are sexy… And you look… really sexy in panty hoes."

"You should go shopping for me more often." She suggested, slinking up to him. He smiled shyly and looked away. Rave wrapped her arms around his waist and snuggled into him with a suggestive grin. "Now you'll have no excuse."

John blushed, then grinned and scooped her up. "You can wear one of them next time!"

The End.
