She watches him like some kind of predatory cat - ironic though that was - was he stepped forward so carefully. She hadn’t exactly done this on purpose - sometimes she dressed like slut for no reason; nothing wrong with that. The idea that she would be able to catch Sarkis’ attention with such a display came later, and it was really the only thing that kept her in such an outfit, on the bed, with the camera in wait. She just had to see the dopey look on his gruff face. And he hadn’t disappointed her - not that he ever did.
She shrugged as he asked of her intention, though her smile remained naturally. “Why the hell not?” she asked right back, and she lifted a hand to him, as if beckoning him to join her, though she remained casual about it. “Maybe I just wanted a picture of you. You’re awful pretty, after all. And I need more pictures of you.”
Don’t you mean more pictures of me eating bacon?
Wait. No, he’s supposed to be denying that he eats bacon. Shit. Ellie is absolutely not playing fair today. He slinks onto the bed and shuffles closer to her, crawling over until he’s perched in front of her, sat back on his own heels. Close enough, but nothing quite touches, but he’ll wait until he’s given permission.
What’s with the outfit?
Not that he’s complaining, but it’s a little hard to hold a conversation with eye contact when all he wants to do is follow the ‘v’ of her open shirt. Whether or not this is on purpose, she’s definitely not playing fair. He’s only human.
She laughs at the reminder that she was constantly trying to sneak pictures of his vegan little mouth stuffed with delicious bacon, and when he comes closer on the bed, she scoots closer, letting their knees press together as she drapes her arms casually over his shoulders. “Well, sure, but since you’re not eating bacon all the time, I gotta work with what I’ve got.”
She looks down at her outfit, as if she wasn’t aware she was wearing it - though of course she was certainly aware of its wiles - and she looks back up at him with a broad smile. “This? Ah, well, I had tried on the blazer and the heels to see if they still fit from the old days. And they did. And then I just didn’t really feel like taking them off. Maybe wanted to see what you thought.”
