'Dite's Suite at the Arms, Monday morning
The sun shone into 'Dite's suite on four sleeping (and all now-grown-up) people.

Dinah was sprawled against Priestly with a very crooked pink-and-orange butterfly over half her face. There was still toothpaste in her hair, and stars inked up her arm.

The others were in similar shape. The room... well. At least it there was a maid service? Along with 'Dite's magic, to clean things up?

[for those present at the slumber party, but also open for any friends trying to track them down]

Priestly & Dinah wake up
Dinah sneaks up on sleeping Momoko and awake Jaime

Jaime woke up slowly. When he realized that there was a weight on top of him, he had a moment of confusion, but then he remembered last night:

The sugar crash had been epic, and a lack of naps all weekend had helped make it happen fairly early. Momoko had fallen asleep almost as soon as she had climbed into bed. It wasn't long, though, before a nightmare woke her up and she sat in bed crying for a few minutes. When she still didn't feel better, she grabbed the stuffed zebra Jaime had won her and climbed outta the bed, dragging her blanket with her. She walked into the room where Jaime said he'd be sleeping. "Jaime? Can I sleeps with you? I had a bad dre... uhm. I mean my tummy hurts." She didn't want to admit she was scared. She was supposed to be a big hero!

And, apparently even tiny little Momoko somehow did that one thing that made it impossible to refuse her: she pretended to be okay. He could see that 'be brave' smile that he knew so well in the expression of a little kid, and his heart had twisted. So he'd said yes, of course she could.

He shifted slightly, arms moving to offer her a gentle, comforting hug without waking her up when Jaime froze. And his eyes shot wide open. Because Momoko was taller, and she had curves (very nice ones), and she clearly wasn't a little kid anymore.

Jaime struggled to get his breathing under control because now he really didn't want to wake her up. Because that would be super-duper awkward.

And, he could admit it to himself, because then she'd get up, and she felt so nice there, lying half-sprawled on him, with her hair tickling against his neck.

He smiled down at her and decided that, just for a little while, he could pretend.

Pretend that she belonged there?

Well, luckily for Jaime, the case in Saitama had pretty much robbed Momoko of a good sleep schedule, and the past 48 hours of almost pure adrenaline and sugar meant she wasn't gonna be easily woken.

She did mewl slightly as Jaime shifted under her, and in response moved to climb even more over him. Be comfy, Jaime!

Looking down at her, relaxed like that. Trusting. It made something in Jaime's chest twist. Nostalgia? Regret? Self-recrimination?

He didn't know. He just knew that he had to fight the temptation to lean down and press a kiss to the top of her head.

"Shhh," he said softly, shifting his arm to support her new position.

Okay, that shifting meant he was holding her more and totally got small sigh of appreciation. Her hand flexed lightly against him as she continued to sleep.

The way her fingers scraped against his sent a little shiver down Jaime's spine, which he tried to suppress. No moving. She might wake up.

It took a few more minutes, but Momoko's sleep started to get lighter. She resisted, though, clinging more to her 'pillow' and trying to stay unconscious.

Dinah wandered in while Priestly was showering, and stopped when she saw that Momoko was still asleep. She smirked at Jaime and folded her arms, eyebrows going upward as she leaned against the doorframe.

Slowly, carefully, Jaime extracted one of his arms and held it out toward her, fingers curling slightly to gesture her over.

Dinah tip-toed, then air-walked, so not even her footfalls made a sound. 'What?' she mouthed, still smiled, and sat back on her heels next to the bed.

Jaime wiggled his fingers at her, arm still extended, raising an eyebrow.

Priestly had one arm draped over Dinah, and about half his hair quite thoroughly stuck to the side of his forehead. He tried to roll over in his sleep, and when his attempt was blocked by "oh, there's a person there", his mostly-asleep brain decided that the best thing to do was to wrap himself even further around said person and snuggle in.

It was a good thing the junk in his hair was dry by now, or it would have been stuck to Dinah's neck as well.

Dinah snuggled back, and yawned. Some vague memories tried to surface, and she frowned. Hmmmmm. Whaaa?

She found a hand, not hers, and held it up to squint at it.




"Hey," Priestly grumbled. His voice was just a touch raspy this morning, a side effect of all the screaming and shrieking he'd done over the weekend. "I might need that later."

He didn't bother pulling his head away from her neck, though. She was blocking the light this way, and he could pretend he could go back to sleep.

"Oh. Right." Dinah dropped Priestly's hand and closed her eyes again. "...your hair's sharp. And minty-smelling." Not that that was a reason to move away.

"Musta forgot to wash out the gel." It happened.

Wait.

". . . Minty?"
