She had just finished taking Katie Thompson around Hogsmeade. She enjoyed that trip-- letting the Muggle-born kids see the castle in the snow was always a treat for her. She was still in a good mood, and didn't have anything left to do today... so she went over to find Mason's house and knocked on the door.

He answered the door dressed in his dark brown undershirt, which clung tightly to him, showing off his muscles that the Royal Marines had given him, and his camo pants, the boots still bloused. He smiled when he saw Eilis, "Eilis! What brings you back here?"

"And here I thought it was me," he said with a smirk opening the door wider to let her in. "Do you wanna come in?"

"Well I wouldn't be knocking on your door if I didn't want to see you, now would I?" she asked playfully as she stepped through the threshold. She looked around at the place to see what it was like.

His home was immaculately clean, everything very neatly organized, not a single dish left out on the counter or in the sink. All the food was stored away in it's proper spot... there wasn't a speck out of place. Just like you'd expect the home a Marine to be. "I suppose that's true," he said with a smile walking into his small kitchen. "Can I get you something to drink?"

She blinked. "The military really has... changed you, hasn't it?" she asked, staring around the room. She looked back at him, realizing he'd offered her a drink. "Yes, please. Whatever you have is fine."

She took the glass and smiled, taking a seat on a couch. "Well, I should say. I remember your bedroom from when you were a teenager," she said with a teasing smile.

He winced, exaggerating it for comedic effect. "Yeah... but all teenager's bedrooms are messy, aren't they?" he says sitting down on the couch next to her. His home was small, the kitchen and living room all sort of connected, only separated by a counter that jutted out into the room, kind of like a breakfast bar. Then there was a little nook that had a small table with two chairs, and the upstairs was his bedroom and bathroom. Since it was only him, he didn't need much else

She wrinkled her nose, but let the continued opportunity to jab pass. "Still... they've clearly put you in shipshape here. They don't come and... inspect your home, do they?"

He shook his head. "No, they don't. But I get inspected daily during Basic Training, so I got used to keeping things clean, so I've just kind of... naturally continued it. Gets easier the longer you do it. I don't even notice it anymore."

She nodded, letting the subject rest. A few moments of silence passed before she smiled shyly at him. "I haven't been able to stop thinking about... the other night at the bar."

He looked at her, "Yeah? Me neither," he said with a grin, looping an arm around her, pulling her close to him. "Err... do you want to... uh... you know," Mason was normally a stud. And now, for some reason, he couldn't even ask Eilis if she wanted to kiss him?

She looked at him uncertainly. "Do I want to... what?" she asked, her face going red. She wasn't sure what he was asking. She hadn't come over expecting... well, sex.

It was seriously adorable watching him flounder. She never expected, of the two of them, to have to be the brave one. "Mason, are you asking me to kiss you?" she asked, hiding a laugh behind her hand.

He let the arm wrapped around her shoulder drop down to her waist, while the other rested on her shoulder as he kissed her back gently, a small smile breaking out on his face

She let her body melt against his as she kissed him back for several long moments before she pulled away, breath heavy, but a smile on her face. And now she was the one tongue-tied.

"It's my fault, probably," Eilis said, quick to claim the blame. "I..." She looked up at him, her brown eyes searching his. "I... believed I was damaged goods." The words were spoken in past tense... but it was clear from her voice that there was still some doubt there.

The words and the kiss brought reassurance. She looked up at him again. "You're... probably the only person I trusted after all of that." She paused. "The only... male, person, I suppose."

"She's good," she said with a smile. "She's got her own place in London-- said you're welcome to visit anytime." She paused, replaying the conversation in her head. "She likes what she does. She even hinted that she might be getting a promotion, but I got the idea that she didn't want to say anything in case she didn't get it... but I figured you'd want to know regardless."
