A piece of fiction about two characters you may or may not know, Troy Salcedo and Jennifer Dixon. Sex happens.
-- Simple Things --
The world didn't have to be more complicated than a white rectangle of sheeting, six and a half feet by five, folded down tenderly over the mattress. The problems Troy was having with the reactor's fuel mix, proton shedding in the fusion chambers, those weren't appropriate right now. Troy's worries about old Fred's cancer eating him up, whether or not the retrovirals would tear it apart, that didn't have to matter. Not even that little four letter word Troy could say, but Jennifer couldn't, was any kind of problem when the world was just six feet by five, flexed softly, and was oh so lightly laced with her perfume.
Jennifer's hands, tawny white at her inner wrist, yellow-sandily furred across the backs and her fingers, dug in tightly at all the mattress's edges, pulling sharp creases into the fabric which she tugged straight a moment later with a perfunctory flick, nude body arching as she did. Her pale stomach flexed and writhed, making dancing s-shapes out of the faint midline of fur running down between her breasts, across her navel, down into the slight wisps of red curls at her crotch, and lower still. It was all a tease, really. He knew that as soon as she caught his eye, when he stopped looking at her body. Changing the bedsheets was just another opportunity for her to tuck her long red hair behind her shoulder, flick up a blunt-tipped ear, and flash white teeth at him. Another opportunity to make him look at her, to enjoy that he looked.
Troy folded his broad ears back, trying to hide the blush, but he didn't have to hide the smile, awkward though it was. Didn't have to hide his nude body, or the way his eyes lingered at her curves, at the way her shoulder flexed as she set her weight on her arm. He didn't have to hide a damn thing. Not his feelings, nothing. "I love you, Jen."
