Lexi listened as he spoke, and she felt as though her heart was warming. Of course she knew that she had always made a difference in Stefan’s life when she was around, but not in this way. Though the fact that he was promising to keep the Ripper side of him controlled made her more than ecstatic. “Good, because it gets really tiring staking you and draining you.” she said with an exaggerated sigh. “Of course I’d be thrilled. I’d get to make him disgusted and then I could sink my fingers into his neck. I wouldn’t kill him.. well.. I’d try really hard not to.” she smirked and leaned down pressing her lips to his once, just needing to feel them there.
Lexi absolutely hated teasing. Besides the fact that she was so used to being the dominant one, but this put more power in Stefan’s hands. Literally. An evil smirk formed on her lips when he asked her to make him regret it. “Just remember you asked for it.” she pointed out before grabbing both of his wrists and quickly rolling them from the couch to the floor, still managing to end up on top. She quickly pinned his hands above his head, “No touching.” she said as she bit down on her bottom lip. She was able to keep his hands above his head with only one of her hands as the other hand travelled down his torso and stopped just before his shaft. Her fingertips barely traced down his shaft before she removed her hand completely.
Smiling, Stefan raised his brows playfully and looked down at his chest. He’d been staked by Lexi more times than he could count. Not that he was complaining. She’d saved him from destroying his life, but it had come with a cost each and every time. “You sure about that? Even though I don’t recall much when my humanity is turned off, I’m sure you enjoy getting to stake me a few times, especially if I’m being an asshole.” Stefan had no doubt that when his emotions weren’t in tact, he was an asshole. Shaking his head, Stefan leaned up and pressed his lips back against hers before leaning back. “Kill him? As fun as that sounds, I don’t need a vengeful Elena coming after us,” he said, his eyes locked on Lexi’s. “Maybe we can be happy without Damon interference.”
He knew the moment he’d told her to make him regret, that he’d regret it. As his back slammed against the floor, Stefan grinned. He liked dominant Lexi. “I’ll remember,” he finally answered, his head falling back against the floor as well. Looking up at his hands, Stefan grinned and nodded. “Got it,” he whispered, his eyes trailing her body. Watching as her hand moved, a low noise of pleasure left his lips as he fingers teased him. Great. He was already regretting it. “Lexi,” he whispered, his eyes falling closed as his hips moved up slightly from the ground. “You really want to tease me?” he asked, his eyes still closed. “I bet you need me as much I need you.”
Then how can I refuse such an offer? Tell me, how are you Stefan?
"You can’t." Stefan smiled. "I could be better, but it is what it is. How about you Katherine?"
If I ever miss a reply, feel free to message me. I reply to everyone. :)
Caroline wasn’t really sure what to say, she’d never seen this side of Stefan before; a much more open and carefree side. “Tell me -resposible Salvatore- what are you capable of doing?” She smiled and watched as he took the bottle, “No no no, you’re going to share.” She smiled.
It was almost amusing how Caroline reacted to his more-friendly side. Smiling, he fixed his non-existent tie and looked toward her. “I, responsible Salvatore, am capable of being the party animal you wish you were,” he joked, taking a long drink from the bottle before holding it up out of reach. “I might.”
Tatia was silent for a good moment, watching her hands with a slight intensiveness. She payed attention to the detail in the creases of her knuckles, the way her fingers latched together slowly, and the way she could practically feel her heartbeat in the tips of her fingers. Paying attention to the little things always took her mind off the nightmares— for those were always creeping around in her subconscious, waiting for the moment she had a spare second, only to cause her to break. She nibbled on her lower lip for a moment before grabbing the bottle and taking a large swig from it. “Right on the,” she exclaimed with a bit more enthusiasm then before. “Let’s excuse that topic for a later date.” she offered. “Tell me more about you, Stefan. I want to know more than what I’ve seen. You can only learn so much about another being through a far sight.”
Stefan watched in utter silence as Tatia’s eyes roamed. She seemed hurt and almost scared. The look pulled at Stefan and he felt as if it was his job to make it better, but he knew it was only the fact she was a Doppelganger. Looking away, his eyes scanned the room. Everyone around them seemed to slowly be leaving and the crowd seemed to be clearing out. Not that he minded, he could drink all night if he had someone to accompany him. Turning his head back, Stefan watched as Tatia took a long drink straight from the bottle. Reaching forward, Stefan grabbed it gently and pulled it over to his side of the table. “Tatia,” he said sternly. “Whatever your nightmares are about, now isn’t the time to try and drink them away.” Sighing, Stefan knew he’d done it again. He’d been protective and given off some of his wise advice. Smiling once more, he shrugged. “There isn’t much to know about me. I’m rather boring. If you want a good story, Damon is the fun brother.”
Lexi laughed but kept the smirk on her face, “Correction, I still love you because of your hair. I have my priorities.” she teased tugging on the ends of his hair at the back of his neck. “I know you too well for you to be able to lie to me. Plus you know I’ll make your life hell for lying to me.” she reminded him. They had gone through too much for her to not know his giveaways when he was lying. “Hey, guess what?” her voiced changed tone to a softer and quieter tone. She leaned in to place a few silly kisses on his face, “I love you.” At this point she was just saying it because it felt so good to say it the first time. To finally get it all off of her chest.
"We can go wherever we want. Just you and me. And we won’t have to worry about anyone walking through the door to interrupt us. Not that I care now." she shrugged, because it wouldn’t bother her at all. She’d actually probably enjoy rubbing it in Damon’s face. The thought alone made her smirk. Though him teasing her was more than enough of a distraction from that fantasy. She growled in response, her frustration growing. "Stefan… please," she repeated. Her hips rolled forward, pressing into his hand. "Don’t tease. You’ll regret it." she warned him because Lexi definitely knew how to play this game.
Nodding along with a grin, Stefan pulled at the ends of Lexi’s long blonde hair chuckled. “I see we have the same priorities,” he added with a wink. He did like Lexi’s hair, but he loved her for her. “I don’t have any reason to lie to you and I won’t have any reasons because as long as you’re here, I’m going to be alright. No more going off the rails and losing control. I’ll be okay,” he said, his eyes searching hers. With Lexi there, he would always be safe. There would be no worry of ever falling off the wagon. “What?” he asked, his brows furrowing slightly as he waited. Smiling, Stefan wrapped his arms around her and squeezed playfully. “I love you too,” he said with a smile. Lexi Branson made him happy and she loved him, and he loved her.
"Anywhere in world sounds fine with me. We can start with places here in America or we can go all out and head to Europe. I don’t care, I want to see it all," he said, his hand brushed against her cheek. "You’d be thrilled if Damon walked in right now, don’t try to hide it." Smirking, Stefan knew exactly what he was doing. Earlier, he’d given in too easily and now it was time to tease. "Yeah?" he asked, his fingers pressing against her roughly before he pulled back again. "Make me regret it Lexi Branson," he said, his lips pressed against the skin of her neck. "Make me."
