An evening of surprises

Timeline: Mission Day 1 at 1930
Having spoken with her father and her mother via subspace Kara headed straight for Tomer's quarters, fortunately they were on their final day of shoreleave so she didn't have to wait until the end of shift. They needed to have a sensible talk although with the effect he had on her she couldn't guarantee things wouldn't end up passionate and in the bedroom. She pressed the door chime and waited for an answer before walking inside. "Hi handsome!" She smiled warmly. "Do you have a moment?"
"A moment. An hour. An evening...." He smiled warmly. "For you, I have whatever you need, Spots. He sidled up next to her and kissed her deeply.
Kara returned his kiss as she gently stroked his face before running her fingers through his hair. "I came here to talk but...don't stop now!" She ran her fingers through his hair as she returned his kiss with another, deeply and passionately.
Tomer nibbled at Kara's neck and then her ears. "I'd say we're talking quite nicely," he told her whispering into her ear. "We will speak the language that nobody speaks but only we two can share."
Kara's hands quickly and skilfully removed his clothes, her hands running over his body. "But we...need to talk about what happened....on Risa." Her voice was heavy and breathless as his touch and kisses drove her wild.
Having quickly shed Kara's clothes, as well, Tomer picked Kara up into his arms and carried her to his bed. "I'd say that we're continuing a rather pleasant conversation." He laid her down and kissed her even more passionately than before.
Kara returned his kiss feverishly and passionately. Her hands quickly helped him out of the rest of his clothes, encouraging him onwards. "But we...need to talk about...us making love unprotected!!" She couldn't help but moan with pleasure at his touch.
"Stop worrying your pretty spots, Kara. Since we had a few moments apart, I was able to get back on my regimen. There's virtually no risk now," he told her stroking her hair and her side.
She breathed a sigh of relief. "But what if..." She sighed with pleasure as he touched her. "I've already... Conceived?" She wrapped her legs around his body showing just how much she wanted him.
"The chance is so infinitesimal, Kara. I would put it out of your mind. Let's just enjoy our time together." He put his hands around her neck and brought her mouth to his as he said, "Of course, if such a thing did happen, it would be the best looking child in the universe. I mean, how could it not be? Look at us...." He then kissed Kara hard.
Kara accepted his kiss and responded quite happily. She hadn't come to his quarters to make love again but she certainly wasn't going to refuse him either. Things were starting to get extremely heated between them as the last of their clothes were thrown to the floor. "Hmmm I said your bed wouldn't be empty didn't I?" Her hands ran along his body. "I want to be here with you every night!!"
"I have no objections to that," Tomer told Kara. "Of course," he continued, giving Kara a winning grin, "I think that we both might end up not getting a lot of sleep in this bed.... After all, you're too delicious."
"Oh really?" She grinned. "So I guess you intend on...eating me all up?"
"Absolutely!" he responded with a stupid, satisfied grin. "Do I hear a complaint?"
"No complaints at all" Kara grinned. "I love the way you love me!"
"Good, because I plan on loving you a very long time." Tomer pulled Kara close and kissed her in a way that conveyed the depth of his statement.
As their lips parted Kara looked at him more seriously. "You really mean that? You want to be with me? I mean...for us to be together as a couple?"
"I would be foolish to let you slip away. Why would I not want us to be a couple? I said it before, on the beach.... You're too perfect."
Kara's eyes lit up and her smile said it all. "I would like that! Very much!!"
“Well, that’s is settled, then. Let’s couple.” He grinned and then nibbled on Kara’s ear.
"Yes please!!" She grinned as she ran her fingers down his back letting them dig in just a little but not enough to hurt him.
Nothing felt better than having Kara in his arms. He let her take control, knowing that whatever happened from this moment on, would be wonderful.
~~ Some Time Later ~~
Cuddling Kara close, Tomer looked into Kara's eyes and said, "I do not think that I will ever be able to tire of this." He sighed pleasantly. "Though, I must say, you might be the first woman ever to wear me out."
Kara smiled warmly. "You're one of the few men I've met that has an energy level that meets my own, plus you make me feel special."
"It's the spots," Tomer replied teasingly, as he pulled her in closer, putting Kara's head on his shoulder. "You're something else, you know that?" He paused for a moment and asked, "You wouldn't happen to be Jewish, would you? I don't completely get it. Two weeks ago, I did not know you existed. In some ways I hardly know anything about you. And yet, this just feels so right."
"No I'm not Jewish but I do know what you mean." She happily cuddled him she felt happy and loved in his embrace. "You make me feel...safe and loved and I've never had anything like this before. I don't want to be anywhere else, I want to spend the rest of my life with you Tomer."
Tomer pushed Kara back for a moment and looked deeply in Kara's eyes. "Already? Are you sure?"
"It sounds completely crazy I know!" She looked into his eyes. "Yes I'm sure!"
"Besherta, I feel the same. I don't understand it but I have always felt it. I knew it from the moment we met." He paused to kiss her slowly and deeply. When he pulled away, he said, "Of course, there are details that must be handled...."
"Details?" Kara looked at Tomer curiously. "What details would those be?"
"Well, you have not met my parents, yet. More importantly, I haven't asked your father for your hand, and everything else that comes with it," he added hastily with a chuckle. "Not to mention, the planning of our nuptials. And of course, kids. When we have them, I will want them raised Jewish. Technically it would be best if you converted...." He turned slightly away uncomfortably about the subject, hoping this would not be a sticking point or an argument.
"I don't see why that would be a problem..." Kara paused, sat up and looked at Tomer in shock and surprise. Gently placing her hand on his side so he'd turn back and look at her. "Is this your way of asking me to marry you!?" She couldn't believe what she was hearing especially as they barely knew each other!
Relieved that conversion was a non-issue, Tomer enveloped Kara and told her, “Technically I think you informed me that you wanted to get married. So, I think I’m just accepting.” He laughed as he said, “This is crazy, isn’t it?”
"Completely!!" Kara smiled. "But I'm sure I never actually asked you to marry me or at least not in those terms! Call me old fashioned but I like the normal way of proposing when the man asks the woman." She looked at him almost appealingly.
How can I refuse that look? It is impossible! I suppose that asking her father fist, given they just met, really would only be a formality, anyways. Warmly smiling at Kara, he asked, "Aren't you supposed to be a counselor, or something, and advising us against this?" He propped Kara up and sat her on the edge of the bed, while he got out of the bed completely. Tomer then knelt on his right knee, looked up and deeply into Kara's eyes, took both of her hands in his and told her in a deep, serious voice, "We may not have known each other for a chronologically long time. However, I believe that I have known you forever. I never knew that I was not whole until I met you. But now, I have found you, my Besherta, and I cannot and do not want to imagine life without you in it. Will you marry me?"
Kara sat looking at him with tears in her eyes before nodding. "Yes! I will." She pulled him to her and kissed him passionately. "Now come back to bed..."
"Yes ma'am!" he responded smartly and hopped in next to Kara, kissing her all the while.
Kara returned his kisses but she stopped him for a moment. "Tomer...wait! I came here to talk about something important!" She knew she'd easily get distracted again so she just came out and said it. "Tomer I'm pregnant!"
"And here I thought that you came over to tell me you wanted to marry me." He chuckled lightly. "Of course, that would be a good reason to want it." He shrugged and smiled. "Well, I guess we are definitely going to have to take care of all the details sooner rather than later. I'd ask how this happened but I'm quite sure I know that part. We really need to keep this quiet. We would not want to invite the evil eye in on our child, would we? We have to wait out until the first trimester to tell anyone. Maybe we could tell our parents but they'd have to keep it quiet too. I assume only a doctor knows, right? Which one? When did you find out?"
"I saw Tia earlier today, she confirmed that it looks like I could be but I have to go back in about a week for proper confirmation. I also talked to my dad about it as well, I needed the advice!" She offered a smile. "Don't get me wrong I'd never do anything to harm our baby! I just...needed to talk to someone else about it." She looked up into his eyes. "Tomer are you sure you're alright with this?"
"The evil eye is a superstition that goes back to ancient times. Essentially, as I understand it, the observation of not telling anyone until the first trimester was over was to nearly guarantee that a baby would be carried to term. So, we still observe it, but...." He grinned at Kara, "Of course this really means that we should move up our time schedules...." He laughed heartily. "I'm going to really catch hell from my mother. Lord knows that she would have wanted us to do this on earth and after you officially converted but she'll just have to survive. We should probably introduce you, at the very least...."
"You want me to meet your mother?" She looked at him surprised. "I guess it's only fair, but we do need to speak my dad, my mum and my step-father." She grinned.
"Oh, you have to meet my father, too, but my mother.... Well, you're not Jewish, so it is difficult to explain...." Tomer shifted slightly uncomfortably. "And of course, I will ask for your hand from your father and then we can talk to whomever you would like, whenever you would like."
Kara grinned something like the Cheshire Cat from the book Alice in wonderland. “This is all so...crazy! but I love it!!” She practically threw her arms around his neck and planted a very romantic and excited kiss on his lips.
Tomer snickered into the kiss and then enjoyed it. The moment that he could breathe, he said, “I love you, Kara.”
Kara looked at Tomer astounded. She wasn't expecting to hear the L word so soon into their relationship, even though they were talking marriage and a baby. She gently rested her hand on his cheek and looked into his eyes, "I love you too, Tomer. Very much indeed!" Adding a nice gentle romantic kiss for good measure.
"Good thing," he told her in a mock pedantic tone. "We're getting married you know? Love is a good thing to have in a marriage, so I am told."
“Oh really!?” Kara frowned before grinning like a Cheshire Cat. “Then it’s a good job I’m head over heels for you isn’t it?” She jumped up before tripping and landing in a giggling heap on the floor. “Well that went well didn’t it!?”
Tomer shook his head and laughed. "You know, you really should be more careful. You have our progeny in that belly of yours."
Kara smiled as she sat looking at Tomer. "You're worried about me? That's very sweet. I promise once I start 'blooming' as they say, I'll take a lot more care."
"Just then?" Tomer asked with a bit of concern. "Why not from the very beginning. We can't have our little bundle of joy starting off with any potential disadvantages, can we?" He swooped up Kara into his arms and said, "Sorry, nothing but spoiling for you from hereon out."
