"That... was... fantastic," Kirk panted as he disentangled himself and rolled over onto his back.
Months of flirting and gentle encouragement had finally paid off in a glorious night of rampant,

as the case may be, he thought, recalling the doctor's sardonic comment as they left sick-bay. He
sighed in complete contentment.
"Indeed," was the lazy response from the smiling, satisfied and no longer homicidal, Vulcan at his

Spock stopped and turned his penetrating gaze on his lover. Kirk swallowed his excitement and tried
to look attentive.
"Yes, t'hy'la," Spock whispered. "I can indeed say that yes, the earth did indeed move for me just
