Title: beneath the milky twilight
Summary: Natalia’s actually kind of embarrassed that she’s asking, because it’s not like she’s thirteen, and yet a blush is creeping its way across her cheeks and she can’t do anything to stop it.
Notes: These two are totally going to have super awkward, teenagery experiences, I feel.

They’re sitting on opposite ends of the couch. It’s actually almost comical, how far apart they’re sitting, and Olivia even has to choke back a laugh, hoping Natalia won’t notice.
Unfortunately for her, Natalia turns her head to face her so fast Olivia’s afraid she’ll get whiplash, and squeaks out a wide-eyed, jumpy “What?” that just sets Olivia off further, and she can’t contain her laugh this time.
“It’s – it’s nothing, just,” she pauses, hand over her mouth, trying to stop laughing.
“What? What did I do?” Natalia’s voice is, strangely enough, even higher this time.
Olivia closes her eyes, shaking her head, letting out a final little chuckle, then opens her eyes, smiling. “This, us,” she says, gesturing between the two of them. “It’s like we’re afraid someone’s parents are going to burst through the door at any second! With you, over there, and me, over here…” she trails off.
Natalia breathes a sigh of relief she didn’t realize she was holding, a small smile forming on her face. “It is a little ridiculous, isn’t it.”
“But for all your big talk, Spencer, you’re still sitting over there,” Natalia points out.
“You haven’t moved either, Rivera,” she says like it’s a challenge.
Natalia sighs, exasperated, giving in, and scoots towards Olivia’s side of the couch.
Olivia slides her arm around the brunette’s shoulders, holding her close, but still posed, a little stiff. Natalia considers telling her to relax, but it would be hypocritical of her, so she doesn’t, and the silent moment continues.
“Maybe we should just do it,” she suggests finally, her voice quiet as she pulls away to gauge a reaction.
“It-” she starts, before being interrupted.
“It?” An eyebrow rises. “Like, do it, do it?”
Natalia’s eyes widen. “No! No! No, not it, it, I don’t think I’m – unless you think you’re – which, I mean, if you are, then I guess I could be too, I mean, Emma’s out for the night and I could drink a little more wine and-” she splutters.
Olivia laughs, stopping Natalia’s outburst with a soft finger pressed to her lips.
“Not what?” Natalia manages.
“Ready. For the whole shebang, with you and me and the..” she gestures vaguely. For someone who has had quite a lot of sex in her day, Olivia finds herself oddly unable to say the word.
And there it is again, the slightly awkward silence. Then,
“Can I um. Can I kiss you?” Natalia’s actually kind of embarrassed that she’s asking, because it’s not like she’s thirteen, and yet a blush is creeping its way across her cheeks and she can’t do anything to stop it.
It takes Olivia by surprise, the question, because no one’s ever asked her before. And she’s never asked anyone else – she’s usually been more of a seize the moment, jump his bones kinda girl. So she nods, going with the flow, and leans in for a kiss, her eyes fluttering closed.
Their noses bump, and two pairs of eyes fly open as they pull back, each woman reaching up to touch possible bruises.
“Okay, ow, ow, that didn’t really work, did it,” Olivia laughs, shaking her head in bemused disbelief.
“No, not so much,” Natalia replies with a chuckle of her own, a bundle of nervous energy.
“Maybe it’ll be better if I, hold on,” Olivia shifts, adjusting her position on the couch. “Okay, let’s try this again,” she says, like it’s a scientific experiment.
Natalia nods, determined to get this right, because God, those lips really need to be on hers, and she really needs to not have an embarrassing nose bruise tomorrow. She leans in, placing a hand on the older woman’s shoulder for support, and presses her lips gently to Olivia’s.
And Olivia’s entire body sings. Because this, this chaste press of lips, is probably one of the best kisses she’s ever had. With anyone else, there would probably already be tongue by now, and she’s kind of okay with the fact that there’s not-
Except that oh, oh wow, there is. And before Olivia can really return the favor, the mouth on hers is gone, and she opens her eyes to an almost confused, questioning look on Natalia’s face. And her heart sinks.
“You can’t handle this, can you?” she asks almost sadly.
“No, no, I can! That kiss was ..” Natalia’s voice trails off and she can’t find the right words, but she’s absolutely certain that they cannot have this fight again.
“Terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad-”
“Good! It was good! Amazing, actually,” she adds, her face flushing. “It was just-”
“Just?” Olivia drags the word out.
“S-soft. Really soft. And kinda .. kinda weird,” she admits, her nose wrinkling.
Olivia is almost offended, and the look in her eyes conveys as much.
“No! I mean it’s just. It’s you, and it’s me, and there were tongues and you’re a woman, and it’s all kind of strange and new and – did I mention really soft?”
Olivia wants to laugh, except she pretty much feels the same way. But Olivia Spencer does not back down from a challenge, even if that challenge makes her feel like a teenager all over again. So she kisses her again, this time letting her hand slide into brown waves, reveling in the feel of Natalia’s hand at her waist.
Natalia lets out a small whimper when Olivia pulls away, earning her a cheeky grin.
This is new, Natalia thinks. “I am?”
“Really, really soft. And kinda weird.”
Natalia chuckles, then moves to snuggle against her best friend (lover? She’s not sure).
“Then I guess we’ll just have to keep practicing,” she smiles, cringing inwardly at how incredibly cheesy that sounded.
“I guess we will.”
