When it came to sleeping arrangements, he'd find she was amicable to share the bed; but..and it was a big but..if Vinny was expecting to have a romp, he hadn't earned the goodies yet. Would he ever? Perhaps. The age difference does make a difference. Couple that with that fact that, despite the tattoos and red hair which most men seem to believe is an open invitation for her to be loose, Kenzie had a family. A family that hammered a certain amount of moral values into her head.

She could also hear her mother's words on replay in her head every time she was about to go out on a date. 'If there's an 'oops' and you pregnant all of your dreams will be ruined.' Which seems a little harsh since kids are kind of cute. But, Kenzie had never aspired to have children. At least not until she was forty or more. There was a whole world..actually, more than one world as she knew now. Being latched to a kid would surely put a kink in her personal aspirations.

But, she didn't see Vinny as someone who wanted to tie her down or be heavy handed. Could she claim to know him enough to be sure?

______________________

Once the holidays were over, Kenzie had picked up a few jobs and stayed quite busy in her own apartment to do her work which took place in the span of about three weeks. If he wanted to come over, the door was always open for Vinny. Then he'd find her trying to complete a few paintings which would probably leave him bored. But, when they were apart, she'd always manage to send a little note his way..with Mike's help of course.

It was always just a short quote so he'd know she was still around.

"Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself."

It was a quiet night once they decided to settle in. He'd just gone about his regular routine and helped her find anything she needed. He knew she wasn't ready to have those kinds of escapades just yet and honestly, it didn't matter to him. Her company was enough. By the time they both got into bed, he'd let her enjoy most of it while he stayed near the edge, and was out cold shortly after giving her a goodnight kiss.

The next few days were among the best he'd had in a while. Cutting down a tree, finding some ornaments and mistletoe, being a generally normal and cheerful person. Even Mike got in on it by singing a few songs and pretending to get drunk off spiked egg nog. With her Christmas present, he tried not to go too overboard. He knew she wouldn't go for some extravagant gifts, and she was the kind of person who'd prefer something from the heart. So he went with a stained glass heart, handmade down in the lab with some help from Mike and a few instruction manuals.



After the festivities had quieted down, they had settled slowly back into their regular lives. She had been busy with projects. He was up to no good down in the lab. He'd visited a few times, and enjoyed watching her work on the paintings. Just to provide company and keep the two of them from shutting out the rest of the world. It was easy for them to get absorbed into what they were doing. But anytime spent with her was good time.

After a few days of this, he decided to respond to her little notes with one of his own- "How about I create ourselves up a nice dinner and we enjoy a night out?"

Smart move. A very smart move on his part. Though it left Vinny barely hanging on to his side of the bed most of the night after sharing a smooch or two. Hopefully, he'd be pleasantly surprised to wake up the next morning with her back pressed against his own. To turn ones back on someone, especially before falling asleep, meant putting a great deal of trust in that person.

Kenzie was proud to see how Vinny threw himself into the holiday decorations. From the tree to the lights, mistletoe and decorations, there was no one complaint. If she didn't know better, Kenz would swear he might even be enjoying himself a wee bit. After going through all that trouble to create their own little winter wonderland, she was perfectly content. Then he slipped a present into the mix as well. The stained glass heart was stunning. "That's not fair." Admiring the gift all the same. "I didn't get you anything."

As the holidays wound to a close, she'd done well with her paintings and made enough to pay the bills and put a bit away. So his suggestion of a night out was perfectly timed.

Sending a message. "Sounds like a great idea. You fix the dinner and I'll bring dessert."

Once they'd settled on a time, he was excited to see it finally arrive. He'd thought about what to cook and eventually settled on a salad to start, followed by pad thai that had just enough spice to add flavor, but not enough to burn her taste buds off. All made from scratch because he thought she would appreciate it more than if the hotel chefs cooked it up for them. However, the one thing he did leave to the chefs was the cheesecake, because he couldn't bake worth a damn. Some candles, a little light music playing in the background, and the ambiance was all set for a nice, relaxing dinner.

"Mike! Kindly warn Kenzie that I'll be opening up a portal in her living room if she's ready to come over. I don't want to just pop in and scare the dickens out of her."

It would be nice not to be surprised and suddenly put a fist to his face. That would be a bad start to a what should be a good night. She was quite surprised how he went all out for the occasion. Was sweet of him to put so much effort into it.

Once the portal opened to her apartment, she was ready and, for once, not dressed so casually. In fact, she'd taken that the long gown from the auction and turn it into one that stopped just below the knee. More comfortable and now reusable. A win-win.

"Wow..this place smells wonderful. ..hi, by the way." Giving a sheepish little wave.
