The moment he touched his lips to Sheridan's, Luis knew he was
lost. It was like he was drowning and Sheridan was the life boat he clung to. His mind reeled and his body kicked
into to overdrive. He knew he should break the kiss before things went any further, but he couldn't seem to find
the strength to pull away.
When Sheridan parted her lips, Luis thought he'd died and gone to heaven. Slipping his tongue inside, he explored
her mouth with a determined thoroughness. He wanted her. He needed her. He wanted to make love to her and that's
when he knew he had to stop.
Raising his head, he gazed into her passion filled eyes. Luis lowered his forehead to rest against hers as they
both tried to catch their breath. "Sheridan, " Luis said after a few moments. "I... I didn't mean
for that to happen."
"I know." She said raising her hand to touch his face. "I didn't either, but I'm not sorry that
Luis raised his head and smiled. "Neither am I. In fact, if we don't stop now, I may lose control. "
"Well, if you do, you won't be the only one." And then she kissed him. Their was an urgency in her kiss
that told him she wanted him just as badly as he wanted her. He grabbed her hands and placed them above her head.
The clink of metal hitting metal sliced through his passion filled brain and brought him back to earth.
He raised his head and gave her an apologetic smile. "I'm sorry, Sheridan, but we can't do this."
"Why not? I thought we were doing pretty good."
Too good, Luis thought. "Sheridan, we have to be on guard at all times. We can't do that if we-"
Sheridan didn't let him finished. She pulled her arms free and pushed him off her. "Luis, uncuff me now."
Luis set up and flipped on the bedside lamp then turned to look at her. Her face was flushed and her eyes held
barely hidden anger. "Promise you won't leave the cabin without me?"
"Yes, now uncuff me."
Luis grabbed the key off the table beside him and unlocked the cuffs. When he looked back at Sheridan her eyes
blazed in fury. "That was the right key the whole time?"
"Yes, I had to have it in arms reach in case something happened and I had to uncuff you so you could get away."
"Ooh, she said pushing him backwards and jumping out of the bed. "You knew I wasn't going to escape!
I think you cuffed me just so you could try and seduce me!"
"Seduce you! Sheridan you're the one that climbed on top of me remember!"
"Only to get the key so I could get some sleep!" She yelled furiously. "You're the one that kissed
"Yeah well, you didn't seem to mind a second ago! In fact, you kissed me the second time!" Luis ran a
hand through his hair. That last kiss had shaken him more than he was willing to admit. In fact, even now standing
there looking like she wanted to kill him , he was finding it damn hard to keep his hands off of her. The see-through
pale blue gown didn't help any either.
As if she read his thoughts, Sheridan looked down and turned beet red. Then she ran for the safety of the bathroom.
Once she shut the door, Luis fell back against the bed, wishing to god he had kept his hands to himself. Because
now that he knew Sheridan wanted him just as much as he wanted her it was going to make it damn near impossible
to fight the attraction between them.
