Warnings: Sorry, I keep veiling the nookie.
Summary: Water, chocolate, what else can we put on Auron?
The skin of the airship purred beneath them. Auron gazed stonily towards the clouds ahead, lost in thought, probably pondering Jecht's next move. His loose sleeve flapped in the wind, and the beads of Lulu's braids clinked lightly against the deck behind them.
"Back to the gorge, then?" Lulu sighed.
Silence. She liked his silences, but sometimes... well.
The mage dipped her spoon in the cup she was holding, scooped up a mud-colored dollop of something that sparkled in the late afternoon sun, twisted towards him and dabbed a blob of it on the older Guardian's nose. That got his attention in a hurry. He wiped it off and flung it away.
"No!" she said, laughing and leaning sideways to lick his nose clean, causing him to wrinkle his face in a comical scowl. "It's too good to waste, Auron."
"Yes, the gorge. I want another look at that sword." He grimaced at her. "What is that stuff?"
She scooped up another spoonful and held it tantalizingly before his nose -- a little lower, this time, so he could smell it. "More Al Bhed heresy, according to Wakka. You'd probably like it. I'm sure it's against Yevon's teachings. Rin asked me if I thought it would sell."
As if testing for poison, Auron stooped and licked the spoon cautiously. He gave her a puzzled but not displeased glance. "It's sweet."
"And dark." She helped herself to the bottom of the iced chocolate, licking her lips.
"But too cold." He unceremoniously seized the remainder and began painting the hollows of her throat and collarbones. Lulu clamped her teeth together to keep from letting out a less than dignified yelp. The swordsman gave her a toothy smile. "This should help." He wrapped his gloved hand in her braids and held her steady, but by the time he finished they had long forgotten Rin's question.
