Always ch 7979. For My SakeAlways ch 79 by FyreQueen89
It's another hour before Zevran wakes up. An hour Aenya and Sigrun spend trying to convince Nevio to stay in bed, and I spend trying not to wonder what Jowan's up to.
None of us have much success. Me because I'm just curious by nature, Aenya and Sig because Nevio just wants to move to the table, and they can't offer a sufficiently compelling argument why sitting at the table is worse than staying in bed.
And so when Zev wakes up, stretching with cat-like graceful laziness, Nev and Sig are sitting at the table figuring out the design for the tattoo he owes her and I'm pacing a loop near the door. And Aenya has snuggled back in next the him.
"Good morning, perla," he smiles, running his fingers through her hair. "You do realize it is going to be exceptionally difficult for me to get up with you there, yes?"
She shrugs and nips his ear. "We can't go anywhere 'til Jowan gets back anyway. We got time to cuddle."
I smile to myself as he laughs at that, low, quiet

Our kiss is long and deep enough I have to break it to breathe. I rest my forehead against Jowan's, perfectly content to just lay here for a little while. I don't care how much of the day we waste.
Jowan chuckles quietly, hand flexing slightly against the back of my neck. He still abruptly. "Rahna?"
"Mm?" I grunt.
"Where's your necklace?" His thumb strokes over where the twined chains should rest, hitting only bare skin.
I frown, my hand darting inside the collar of my shirt. "It's..." Gone. "It should be..." But it's not. "No." I bolt upright, feeling frantically for the chains. A sick feeling settles in my gut when it's not there. "They must've taken it..." I glance at my hand and feel the smallest twinge of relief when Nelaros' ring glints at me. I have no idea why the Crows left that and took the necklace, but I'm not going to complain about still having it. My necklace.... Panic starts

"I promise to drive you crazy constantly, risk your life regularly, tease you mercilessly in public, and ensure you never have a boring day again."
He chuckled, giving her that grin. "Now there's an honest vow."
Silver smiled to herself at the voices echoing in her head, resting her chin on her husband's chest as she watched him sleep.
Husband. If you'd asked her five years ago where she thought she'd be by now, 'married' wouldn't have even crossed her mind. Fingers clutching the datapad that transferred ownership of the Corellian Angel from her father to her, her head had been filled with dreams of matching her father's

Sigrun's weapons clatter to the floor--the sound much louder with the absence of background noise--as she rushes toward Nevio. She's closer than the rest of us, close enough to catch him before he crumbles all the way to the ground.
"Hey. Hey, Crow boy, you're not goin' anywhere," the Legionnaire all but orders, cradling his head in her lap. "I won't let you."
Nevio winces, one hand pressing against the gash torn in his side. "First you... threaten t-to kill me... yourself, and now... you won't l-let me die? No--nngh--offense, cara, but you... you are a very confusing woman."
His teasing, if weak, smile pulls one from her as we move closer. "You still owe me a tattoo, remember?" She traces a finger over the raven that arcs along his scalp. "Maybe... somethin' like this, just on my shoulder..." Her words trail off as she shoots Jowan a desperate look.
His eyes dart between my mangled shoulder and the slowly growing pool of blood under the ex-Crow.
