Very short Inara-centric fic. Inara/other, Inara/Mal


TITLE: All It Takes AUTHOR: CCke RATING: PG-15? DISCLAIMER: Firefly and its trademarks are the property of Twentieth Century Fox, Universal Pictures, Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, and the WB Television Network. All rights reserved. No copyright infringement is intended. AUTHOR'S NOTES: So there’s an Addek-pornbattle going on in the GA-verse on LJ. And there’s a table. But I wanted some Inara… So I randomly picked 4 words off the porn-table to write my one-shot: clock - practice – first time – love and I tried to keep it short. Thanks to guinevere to read this through before I posted it. -------------------------------------------------

The first time she was alone with a client, she froze. It wasn’t like she didn’t know what to do or say, ‘cause she did. They’d practised this in the Academy countless times over and over again. Every move was an act- and Inara was said to be the best in her craft. Yet she was the one to falter as the young lieutenant ran his fingers across her bare skin, his eyes gazing at her with so much passion and want. Emotions soared and sent her spinning off her centre, out of balance. He’d called out her name and only then she’d got a grip on what she was doing again. It was only a moment - one moment where she didn’t worry about etiquette and rules, and just wondered what it would be like to have something like this forever. To feel loved for real and to lose herself completely under someone else’s touch…

Years of practice had taught her how to make love to others, please them and pretend there wasn’t money and a ticking clock involved. And tricks. Moan when he kisses your collarbone, flex around him…

It hadn’t even taken two whole years aboard of a rusty old spaceship to learn what it felt like to be loved herself – no pretence, just honest and sincere feelings. A sigh as he kisses the spot behind her ears, a long moan as his fingers brush ever so lightly over her hard nipple… No orchestration.

She faltered as he ran his fingers across her bare skin. He stared at her intently, and for a moment it was like she was back in her old room at House Madrassa. “Inara?” he questioned as he gently brushed a strand of hair away from her face. She opened her eyes and just looked at him for a second – his hair a bit mussed up, his bare torso and those blue, blue eyes… - then smiled before she captured his lips and pulled him down with her on the bed… It took her years to master the art of seduction and control. Amazingly it just took a touch from a dusty, ragged captain to make her forget everything she’s everything she’d ever learnt. In the end, all it took was love.

This was a beautiful moment for Mal and Inara and a great look at the differences between her job and her life.

More please!
