Last bit!

 

                Zoe still isn’t sure she’s ready to return to the bunker after school the next day, but surely she’d given them enough time? She shudders, sure she’ll be scared for life after that lovely image of her dad making out (okay, way more than that) with Dr. Stark.

                After a few minutes of sitting in her car, she takes a fortifying breath and gets out. She bounds down the steps as if she’ll loose her nerve. S.A.R.A.H. greets her and promptly opens the door, so she figures this is a promising sign. Even so, she shuts her eyes as she first steps inside and calls out, “Um… hello?”

                “Zo?” Jack sounds amused.

                Hesitantly Zoe opens one eye. Locating her dad – standing alone in the kitchen with a beer – she heaves a sigh of relief. Opening both eyes, she gladly walks all the way inside. Now that she knows there’s no disgusting parental public displays of (sexual) affection to be seen, she regains some of her bold curiosity.

                “Beer me!” she tells S.A.R.A.H.. The house doesn’t comment as her drink fills. Jack looks scandalized until Zoe smirks and explains, “Root beer, Dad! C’mon. You know I can’t hack the house.”

                “Please do not attempt to do so,” S.A.R.A.H. responds.

                “Promise!” Zoe turns her full attention on her dad, widening her eyes in exaggerated innocence. “So, you have a good night?”

                She’s amused (and secretly a little horrified) by the blush that creeps all the way down Jack’s neck. She must have a hidden masochistic side because the next words out of her mouth are, “What did you do?”

                Her dad gapes at her, a mixture of shock and irritation covering his expression. His voice isn’t the one that answers, however. Seemingly out of nowhere Dr. Stark appears in the kitchen and announces, “Oh this and that.” Jack turns a scandalized gaze his way. Zoe knows that she’s the one blushing now.

                Dr. Stark watches her with a smug expression as he stops at Jack’s side and fingers his collar. “I couldn’t find the bruise salve,” he says, eyes alight with amusement as he tugs aside Jack’s collar.

                Zoe’s eyes get huge when she sees a very dark hickey that Stark possessively caresses with one finger. She barely muffles a yelp as she flees to the living room. Clutching her schoolbag protectively she asks hopefully, “CanIgotoPilar’s?”

                Her dad takes a moment to decipher that. With a frown he says, “No. Just, uh… go and study in your room. I’ll get you for dinner.”

                Zoe darts partway up the stairs. Standing still, she mutters to herself, “I think you want something else, Dad.”

                Stark’s voice drifts up into the stairwell. “That was fun.”

                “Who are you trying to traumatize, me or her? Do not do that in front of her again. She’s gonna think she can get away with walking in some day with—”

                “Love bites?”

                She can imagine the scowl her dad’s wearing. “Ugh. I do not want that in my head. God knows it’s going to happen eventually.”

                “Then I’ll just help you traumatize her some more.”

                “Yeah, right. I’m your real target.”

                Stark chuckles and there’s a long pause where Zoe is certain they’re kissing. (Sweet, but also totally gross.) “I like watching you lose control.”

                And that is more than enough for her poor teenage brain to handle. She runs the rest of the way to her room and throws herself into her studies, praying that physics equations will fill her head instead of the disconcerting image of Dr. Stark very nearly petting her dad.

I loved this fic! Bravo on keeping the characters IC. I could help from laughing at Stark-- between him being traumatized and traumatizing others! Great job :o)

Thanks so much! =D

I figure the way Nathan regains his balance is throwing other people off. ^_~

I hope that, when it's eventually posted, you'll enjoy my next Eureka story/stories.

I've loved Stark and Carter from the first episode they were together in. I was sobbing when they 'killed' Stark off but I'm ever so happy to see the couple lives on here! Fantastic story, do you think there's a sequel in it somewhere?

I could see a sequel... but I'm something of a "first times" fan so a sequel hasn't really made it on my radar. Besides... I've got an epic project in the works. ;;^_^

Thanks for you comment!

*blush* Thanks! I've really fallen in love with Jack/Nathan... I recommend absolutely everything written by vixys and serene_quill. Gin and clarkoholic and kristories are also wonderful. I have a recs tag on this journal that you can check out for specific recs. =) (I'm always happy to spread the love *g*)

I'm thrilled to get your comments! =D

Great Fic! Sorry about the late comment, but I'm new around, reading back some, obviously, and I just had to tell you how much I love this series. Definitely one the best I've read so far in this fandom. Love the humor, and Allison's reactions trying to get them to go to therapy....Ha! Their angst was very well written. The sex was totally hot. And I especially liked the length, and that you took time to create a buildup. And Stark teasing Zoe, and her reactions to everything...perfect.

LOL I saw your vgift and the note, it totally made me giggle. I do think I'll get back to this pairing (hell, I have at least two Eureka stories in-progress that would work for hc_bingo) but for now I'm wrestling with my first SPN story! :O

I LOOK FORWARD TO THE ICONS!
