Admittedly, Combeferre had quite a bit on his mind as when he arrived on Sybil’s doorstep for a comfortable evening that had become delightfully routine. Short on the heels of Pontmercy's unexpected arrival in Darrow had come Courfeyrac, and though he was overjoyed and relieved to have both friends here, they brought news that weighted heavy.

So they had failed at the barricades, that was certain. And, if Courfeyrac account was correct, they had been abandoned, betrayed by the dozens of minor acts of cowardice as men who had sworn loyalty hid behind closed doors once the fighting started. In the week since Courfeyrac had come to Darrow, Combeferre had awoken each morning with this knowledge twisting his stomach anew.

But how could he share such a fate with the woman he loved? No, that he would have to keep to himself.

Taking a breath and pulling a smile onto his lips - he was glad for the comforting evening ahead - he shifted the bottle of wine in his hand and knocked on Sybil’s door.

It may be a routine that is comfortable, but Sybil knows that is one that can't last forever. Not only will he want more, eventually, there's a desire they both have for it go further. It's the very thing that causes her to open the door wearing what can only be considered a risque outfit one that was suggested by both Katie and Lucy. A silk robe and the matching negligee in a rose that suits her skin, with lace that is softer than she's ever touched. There's a tremble in her hand that holds the door open, thought whether excitement or nervousness she isn't sure. Perhaps both?

"Bon nuit," she says softly, precluding any greeting he might give. "My darling."

His words are, if anything, a complete relief. That he's smiled, made something of a jest, it's made this seem a million times less intimidating. "I thought it was best as a surprise," she says softly, holding a hand out to him, wanting him to come inside with her. "If I told you I might be more nervous."

It's possibly best that he's been caught so, she thinks, needing a few seconds to compose herself again. "I can forgive you. I think I caught myself as well."

Her fingers tighten about his, glad that he seems pleased, though surprised. "You brought wine. Would you like a glass?"

"That would be lovely," she says, daring to kiss him quickly on the cheek for his offer. Sybil squeezes his hand, leaving him to the wine whilst she put some music on the digital player that a gift this past Christmas. She's practiced this, has it set so something soft plays, orchestral but not overwhelming or too dramatic. It's all part of her plan to relax and enjoy the evening.

"Thank you," she says softly, crossing to him to take the glass. It's important, she thinks, to go to him and show that her nervousness doesn't mean that she's reconsidering her actions. It bolsters her own resolve too, as does the way his cheeks colour ever so slightly.

"My darling," she says, lifting her glass toward his. "Should we drink to the two of us?"

"I know," she says, earnest and intent. His touch is light, and Sybil turns to press her cheek against his hand. It's because of this - the way that he asks nothing more than she wishes to give - that she feels ready to give more. "I wish to. I love you more than I thought I might love anyone, honestly."

Her cheeks are warm as well, her free hand covering his on her cheek as she closes the gap between them. Sybil's kiss is gentle, but insistent, not pulling away to end it as she usually might. It's an invitation for more, one that sets her heart racing.

Before she truly realises it, Sybil is putting her wine down, and instead cupping his face as their kiss grows more heated. It is the right, decision, she's sure of that now; sure of him and their bond. She breaks it only to take his hand and tug him toward her bedroom, her eyes bright and full of promise.

"I love you too," she whispers back, letting the robe slip away, leaving only the negligee that seems so daring. Sybil curls her fingers in soft hair at the nape of his neck before slipping them down his shirtfront to unbotton the first few buttons.

Her fingers tremble slightly as she undoes his shirt, though it's in part due to the brush of his lips on her skin. Her eyes flutter closed briefly, her hands slipping beneath his shirt as she sinks down toward the bed, pulling him with her.

It may be quick, but Sybil is still nervous, and she's afraid if they stay still too long she'll lose her resolve. Seeing him above her, his shirt open and his cheeks warm and pink, she knows that's a silly thought. There's a warmth inside of her that she's not imagined, and whatever it is to come, she's content with.

"Hello," she murmurs back, kissing his cheek and his nose in response. Sybil nearly giggles, unbelievably comfortable as she shifts beneath him, drawing a leg up along the side of his. "I thought you'd never make it tonight ."

"It only seemed like forever," she says when their kiss finally breaks. It has made her want another in a way she's not imagined before. Sybil's skin is flush, too, as she pushes his shirt off his shoulders, biting at her lip. "My darling."

She smiles, made bold by his responses and that he is both eager and yet still as loving and considerate as ever. Sybil nips lightly as his lip before letting their kiss grow deeper. She enjoys the touch of his hands and the shivers they cause; more she enjoys the warmth of his skin beneath her hands, the curve of the small of his back and his sides.
