Terms of Endearment 

She twisted down and to the left.

A groan escaped him.  

“You like that?” she panted.

Their eyes were locked.

“Yes,” he rasped.  “A lot.”

A smile graced her face.

He closed his eyes, lost in the steady, rhythmic rocking of her hips.

Then she saw the word forming on his lips.

The amazing rolling motion halted abruptly.

“Don’t call me that.”

He opened his eyes.


She glared at him.

“Are you serious?”


“What would you like me to call you?”

Leaning in close, she whispered in his ear.

A chill crawled down his spine.

Bill Adama smiled.

LOVE this. It's smokin' HOT, and I could SO see Laura telling Bill not to call her baby. Awesome take on this week's prompt! ;D Well done you!

OMG. I love this! How in sync they are; how she knows what he's going to say before he can even say it. Wonderful stuff! :-D

I have my own theory about what she'd rather be called, but the ambiguity here is so, so, so good... best to leave it just between the two of them. ;-)

I love the ending. It mysterious and sexy. I love that we all get to have our own little theory as to what she whispered, and that is perfect.

Hee hee!! Such a wonderful little moment and I can totally see Laura stopping what she's doing and giving him the over the glasses stare!! Well, if she were wearing her glasses, that is!! LOL!! I like too how you leave the ending open to whatever the reader may think she whispered in Bill's ear. Plus I'll second lack's thought of how Laura knows what Bill is going to say before he says it. :)

So good!

I can believe wholeheartedly in a Laura who spots the word 'baby' before it's been said aloud and puts a very firm stop to it! Not to mention that she is clearly, as you have shown, a woman far sighted enough to have a suitable alternative epithet in mind - and I'd bet good money it isn't snookums! ;)

Lol, I love this. It's hot, I totally identify with hating to be called baby, and I love how we never hear what she tells him!
