Patty Hewes has warm hands.

It never fails to surprise Ellen. It makes her shiver and fascinates her in the raw acceptation of the word – it hypnotizes her. Cold face, cold eyes, cold voice. You would have expected Patty to have cold hands too. But on the first inadvertent – or not so inadvertent – brush of skin against skin, Ellen had found out that Patty’s hand was rather soft and pleasantly warm.

Maybe it’s a façade, a make believe, a means to deceive the adversity.

Or maybe on the contrary, it’s a small and rare self-treason from her own body, a way for the passion to channel out and reach the surface. There is passion in Patty, deep underneath the surface. Most of the time it’s kept in check, all the more efficient and terrifying when it unleashes and blasts into a carefully elaborated plan to tear down the enemy. Or to undo them in whatever way she’s decided.

She has warm hands. They’re warm as they curl around the back of Ellen’s head and dip into her hair to pull her closer. They’re warm on Ellen’s shoulders and breasts, and they’re warm when they push her skirt up and part her knees.

Ellen leans back in the cushions of the sofa with a soft gasp. She doesn’t fight; she can’t fight nor does she wish to, transfixed by the image of the brisk hands creeping up her thighs. One way or another, she’ll have to pay for this later. Patty will use it either as a means of pressure or as a so-called bond between them.

Ellen has grown and learned since she started to work at Hewes & Associates. With all due precautions – and that’s its glory – a bond between them can work both ways.

Holy goddamn. Just, you know, words, and... holy goddamn. God, I just LOVE this.

It's just so absolutely fantastic. Augh. And the idea of Patty's passion being such an efficient type of fury... AUGH!

I just... so much... I don't even KNOW, I just love it. Thank you, thank you, thank you, times about six million.

Thank you :) It's been fun - and scary *g* - to try to come up with something. And 'glory' is even here. By the skin of the teeth, but well... ;)

There should be lots more of these two. They are soooo shipable. Well done!

Thanks so much, and you're welcome :)
And let's bow to the prompting lady because without a prompt, I probably wouldn't have ventured to try to write this pairing :p
