Diving in Head First

Posted on Friday May 10, 2019 @ 7:58pm by Lieutenant JG Mayzie Kaar & Colonel Richard Sharpe

Mission: LINK
Location: Richard’s Quarters
Timeline: MD-01, 2000

The duty shift was finally over, and Richard was back in his quarters, getting dressed to spend the evening with Maze. He genuinely enjoyed all the time he got to spend with the brunette pilot, especially when they snuggled on the couch of an evening, simply enjoying one another's company. He was quite content with how things were with Mayzie, aware that she wanted to take things at a pace she was comfortable with. He was in no rush, and was just enjoying getting to know her.

Tonight was planned to be a nice quiet evening, although it was Mayzie's turn to choose what they did, since Richard had picked last time. That had been a quiet dinner at home and a cuddle on the couch whilst watching a film. If he had to be honest with himself, he preferred those kinds of dates to the more elaborate ones, but it was whatever made Mayzie happy at the end of the day. She'd be over once she'd finished dress shopping with her friends, so he made himself some tea and sat back, waiting for his girlfriend to arrive.

Dress shopping is exhausting, especially for a woman who would much rather be at home with a good book and some grub. But she loved her friends dearly and enjoyed each of their zany quirks. It was like being back home during a family reunion. After a while, however, she became all tuckered out and just wanted to sit in some peace and quiet. She had been thankful that Richard was similar in the way that after a night with his buddies he needed to unwind with some peace and quiet. And that’s what she got as she walked into Richard’s quarters and spotted him relaxed on the couch. “Do weddings get more or less stressful the closer they get? And I’m not even the one getting married!” She laughed as she placed her bag on the table and walked over to the couch, taking a seat on the couch arm next to Richard.

Richard chuckled and placed a reassuring hand on her thigh. "Not that I've actually been through one myself, but weddings are incredibly stressful on all major parties involved. You think this is bad, wait for the hen-night. You're going to think pulling twenty-four hour shifts is easy in comparison to that." He smirked at her. He loved that she was so care free and happy with her friends. "I'm guessing you were bridesmaid dress shopping?"

“Yup, making sure everyone agrees on one dress is like trying to herd cats,” Maze looked down at Richard, giving him a big smile and running her hand through his hair. “What have you been up to?”

"Well, I had to deal with a disagreement between marines and the FPD, which was relatively straight forward." He replied. "Then I had a staff meeting with the Captain, now that she's back." There was a good chance she wasn't cleared to know about the details of the meeting, so therefore decided not to tell her about them. She'd learn of the general events in good time. He pulled Mayzie off the arm so that she fell into his lap, and he wrapped his arms around her. Somehow, the upcoming events meant that there would be little chance to spend time like this, so he wanted to take advantage of the time he had now.

“Sounds dreadfully boring,” Maze giggled as she wrapped her arms around him and gave kim a kiss on his lips. “I don’t know how you could just sit there without wanting to pull your hair out!” She let out a sigh and she rested her head on his shoulder and tightened her grip. He was like a big teddy bear, making her feel warm and safe, as if nothing would harm her if he was there. “Anything new going on?”

"Nothing that you'd be interested in." He replied, wrapping his arms around her, holding her tight. He liked being like this with her, it was comforting. It made him feel loved and wanted, something he always wanted. Oh sure, he might be the big bad warrior type, but inside, he was as insecure as the next person. Having Mayzie in his arms blew away the demons in his heart and soul, kept the nightmares at bay, and helped him in more ways than he could express. "Some political event coming up, nothing exciting. Oh, we're getting a patrol ship though. A Defiant class to help take some of the workload off the fighter group."

Maze let out a grunt. She loved her patrols and the bigger ships were always full of Alphas looking to take the credit without doing the work. “I love my patrols, though. Kind of why I became a pilot.” She stuck her tongue out playfully. “They better play nice with us peons.” She lifted her head up. “What political event, though?” She then paused, and shook her head slightly to get the curiosity out of her head. “Never mind. I don’t want to talk about work.” Saisol’s voice popped up in her head, sending a slight buzz through her chest. Maze’s bright blue eyes moved up to Richard’s, giving off a slight glint of curiosity. “Richard… do you think I’m…” She hesitated, feeling her nerves wash over her as she began treading into an incredibly scary territory. “Do you think I’m sexy?”

He was a little taken aback by this question, but he could tell from her face and tone that this was clearly something that was troubling her greatly. He wasn't entirely sure why, but he could make a guess. He was aware of her previous dating history, and there was that scar over being cheated on. She normally was so calm, composed and confident - all the traits of a pilot. But at times like this, she showed her true self. "Of course I do!" He replied, honestly. "Do you think I don't because I haven't tried to... you know... tried to force the issue of sex?" He looked into her eyes, almost getting lost in how deep they were, the sparkle of the blue.

Shrugging, Maze looked all around his face for something. She didn’t know what she was looking for exactly though. Her inexperience was mounting. Maybe Saisol was right; maybe she just needed to let Richard take the wheel this time. “Kiss me,” she stated softly, almost breathlessly.

Richard hadn't seen her like this before, and he was forced to wonder what magic being with her girlfriends had done. But this was the moment he'd been longing for, for the last six months. She wanted him, he wanted her so badly, but he was worried about hurting her. His love for her transcended the physical, and he wanted her to be ready. Kissing wasn't exactly new to them, but this felt... more. They were already nose to nose as it was, so he closed the distance and kissed her firmly on the lips.

Maze felt a jolt, then a sudden warmth over her body. Yes! This was just different, so so different, but different in the most amazing way possible. There was such passion and sweetness behind the kiss and the way he cradled her in his arms and the way he carried her to his bedroom and placed her gently on the bed. She had nothing to worry about and nothing to fear. He would make sure she was going to be okay.

He'd longed for this moment for so long, and he was going to make it special for her. A little appreciated fact was that being a genetically enhanced human gave him increased stamina and regenerative abilities. Well, Mayzie was going to get a first hand education on what that meant to Richard's personal life. He undressed quickly, and removed Mayzie's shirt and jeans in quick succession, before climbing up onto the bed with her, locking his lips with hers, showing her the passion and the desire he had for her. An evil thought ran through his mind at that moment - he was going to show her what she'd been missing alright.


Richard woke up to find Mayzie curled up against his body. She was still sleeping in his warm embrace, a small smile on her face as she breathed gently. Well, she'd earned the sleep, that was for sure. Although far from her first time, he was pretty convinced that he'd shown her things that she hadn't experienced before. Fortunately for the pair of them, today was one where they both had no duty assignment, so there was no imperative to get up or leave. That suited Richard just fine, as he was quite happy where he was, although his left arm was a little numb having a grown adult sleeping on it. Using his free arm, he gently brushed some of Mayzie's hair out of her face. She really was cute.

Maze crinkled her nose slightly at the soft touch. Her body still felt heavy as her mind began waking up, realizing she was still in bed and with Richard. She could definitely get used to this. Opening one eye, she tilted her head to look up at him with a slightly goofy smile on her face. “Meanie,” her voice croaked from her deep sleep. “You woke me up.” She then shut her eyes again and dug her face back into the pillow that smelled like him. It was intoxicating.

He chuckled at her comment and ran his finger down her body curve lightly, eliciting a shiver from her. "You know..." He said. "I have nothing on today until around five. I'm all yours until then. Did you want to sleep all that time away?" He asked, running his finger down her thigh. "Or... did you want to do something?"

Letting out a soft giggle in pleasure, Maze rolled over onto her back and looked straight up at him. Her hand moved to his face, cupping his jaw with its palm. She pulled gently and brought his caressing lips against hers. Each of his tender and passionate kisses made her realize he was putting everything he had with her. He was taking his own risks with her after a history of a heartbreak. And he was still here so she must have done something right. She let her tongue slip into his mouth, giving his own tongue a playful flick before pulling back and placing her head back on the pillow. “Breakfast then?”

"Mmmm..." He said, softly, then leaned in and kissed her passionately again, his tongue playing with hers. After a moment, he separated and holding himself up over her with his arms, he gave her a lecherous smile. "Perhaps later..." He growled playfully. "...after a good morning workout..."
