Jane hurried around her apartment; she had 10 minutes until Maura was going to be arriving at her condo.
"Nice one Rizzoli, first Valentine’s day together and you’re going to ruin it." She stood in front of the mirror admiring how well she scrubbed up when she put in the effort. The little black dress, which Jane had bought specifically for tonight, hugged her in all the places she knew Maura would admire most. The usually wild and untamed hair had been straightened and pulled back into a simple bun. Her bare shoulders exposed made the detective want to grab a clean blazer from her wardrobe and throw that on, but she knew it would have looked ridiculous, and tonight she truly wanted to make Maura’s jaw drop.
Catching the glimpse of golden from the corner of her eye, Jane turned around with her hands on her hips. “You can sleep on my bed, but I don’t know if Maura will let you sleep on hers.” Jane walked over to the golden labrador that lay sprawled out on her bed, and began to pet him. “Her blanket alone probably cost more than my entire bed.” Jane giggled to herself. “You have to be a really good boy for Maura, she’s never had a dog before, but she’s good with Jo, so she will love you. I need to stop worrying.” The puppy looked at her. “I also need to stop talking to a puppy.”
Walking back to her wardrobe, Jane pulled black stilettos from the back and placed them gently on her feet. She petted the dog one more time and told him to be a good boy, before closing the bedroom door and walking back into her lounge room where her table was set.
White roses, candles, black table cloth, and her finest cutlery and plates (…that she borrowed from her mother) sat perfectly on the table. A small gift was wrapped and placed near where Maura would be sitting. Jane took one final look at the apartment, which she had tidied the best to her ability and decorated with fairy lights. She knew the night was going to be perfect, she needed to stop stressing, because it would be the first thing Maura would pick up on.
A knock from the door sounded right on time, fixing her dress one last time, before carefully walking to the door, as to not step on the red rose petal trail she had from the door to the table, corny, she knew. But corny was worth it to make Maura smile.
"Happy Valentine’s Day." Jane beamed as she opened the door. Her eyes traveling the sight of her girlfriend in front of her.
How they were going to make it through dinner was beyond the brunette.
Getting ready that night had seemed to take forever. She wasn’t sure why she was so nervous. Perhaps it was because it was she and Jane’s first Valentine’s day as a couple… and maybe she was a little excited to see what this big special gift was that Jane had gotten her. Receiving flowers, chocolates and a bear this morning had been incredibly sweet and it left the M.E in a wonderful mood all day.
After taking her time in getting ready, Maura was finally satisfied with her look. She was wearing a red dress that hugged her curves in all the right places, with a black leather jacket and a pair of red pumps. Her hair was left down in lose curls and she was wearing minimal makeup. Gathering Jane’s gifts and her things, she was all set and ready to go. Bidding Bass a goodbye, Maura headed out the door, locking it behind her.
The drive to Jane’s felt longer than usual and she couldn’t help but notice the nervous flutter in her stomach. When she finally arrived, Maura killed the engine of her car and took a moment to breathe. Relaxing a bit, she grabbed the two gifts she had purchased for Jane and went to the elevator to get to Jane’s floor. When she reached the brunette’s apartment, she knocked a few times until the door opened.
Jane was beaming at her and once Maura got a good look at the brunette, she felt like her insides had melted. Her girlfriend looked beautiful. Maura smiled back. “Happy Valentine’s day!” She leaned in for a soft kiss and a hug before entering Jane’s surprisingly tidy apartment. “You look gorgeous.” Maura commented as she turned and watched Jane shut the door. Her eyes drifted slowly up and down her girlfriend’s body before she finally met Jane’s gaze.
"Everything looks lovely." She said as she held her Valentine’s day themed gift bag in one hand and her clutch in the other, eyes finally looking around the apartment.
"You look…better than me," Jane looked down at what she was wearing, and suddenly she was feeling very…very plain Jane, so to speak. "I mean you always look better than me, but god, you’re stunning."
Placing her hand on the small of Maura’s back, Jane guided the blonde to the table. “I’m sorry it doesn’t look like much.” She sighed inwardly as one of the candles had dripped wax onto her mothers table cloth. “Did you like the morning part of your Valentine’s presents?” Jane began to pour the two a glass of wine each. “I have never in my life sent anyone gifts for Valentine’s day.” She had also never gone to this much trouble to make herself look decent for a date, nor had she ever set a romantic table for the evening.
"This is probably going to sound so cheesy," Jane moved closer to Maura. "But would you like to have a dance with me? Just while dinner finishes cooking."
Maura had never done this before, but she had, had it done to her. With that and her vast knowledge of the human body, she was confidant that she could make Jane feel amazing. Jane’s moans and cries of approval helped a lot too… Arousal coiled like a knot in the pit of her belly, it was like sensory overload; Jane’s fingers in her hair, the taste of her, the feeling of Jane around her.
The more Jane rocked her hips, the more determined she became to bring Jane crashing over the edge. Her tongue moved over and around Jane’s clit, sucking it softly before she slipped it back inside Jane. She allowed one arm to move up Jane’s thigh and explore the brunette’s skin, fingers counting ribs as the detective’s body writhed in Maura’s surprisingly strong arm.
She could feel Jane getting close, hear it in her breathy expletives and moans. Maura’s pace quickened and her free hand moved back down Jane’s body before allowing her arm to wrap back around Jane’s thigh. She could hear her own heart beating in her ears and she could almost get off on Jane’s moans alone, or the way her body moved beneath Maura’s hands, at her touch.
Jane was her new favorite thing to eat.
Bringing her bottom lip between her teeth, Jane bit down hard as she removed her hands from Maura’s head and placed them either side of her body and began to claw at the sheets underneath her fingertips. Never had she felt someone be so soft and gentle with her. As the blonde’s tongue darted inside her, Jane moaned out loud and arched her hips upward, wanting more and more of her love.
"Mmmmaura," Jane gasped out as Maura’s tongue moved faster and faster inside of her, in and out and deep as the Doctor could go. Jane’s hips began to buck harder against Maura’s face and her left hand snaked down her own stomach and began to stroke her clit while the blonde’s tongue worked her hole. "Fuuu, yesssssss"
She moaned loudly as her orgasm rode through her body, she continued to stroke her clit fiercely and grind into Maura’s lips while her thighs voluntarily shut and captured blonde curls in place.
Breathing heavily, she looked down to Maura who was looking back at her. “Come here,” Jane wiggled her finger. “You’re amazing.”
Maura allowed herself to be pulled into Jane’s embrace. She relaxed and held her new puppy close. “This is the best Valentine’s Day I’ve ever had.” Maura said with a smile. She chuckled as noted the red ribbon in the room and then looked down at her puppy. “Too girly, huh, boy? You don’t need a ribbon, you’re already cute.” She cooed, making the puppy wiggle in her arms with excitement. “What are we going to name you?” Maura wondered out loud, fingers playing with his soft little ears.
Dozens of names went through her head as she looked down at her little Valentine’s Day puppy. Valentino would be too corny and she really wasn’t a fan of that… “Alfred.” Maura finally said with an affirmative nod. “Is your name Alfie? I think it is.” She grinned when newly named Alfie licked her chin and yipped.
"Oh!" Maura said after a moment. "I have a gift for you, Jane." She set Alfie down and moved to stand up before reaching out to give Jane her hand. Alfie bounced around them both, tail wagging. Smiling, Maura didn’t release Jane’s hand as she led the detective back into the dining room and grabbed her gift bag with the signed jersey and baseball. She turned and handed the bag to Jane, suddenly looking nervous. "I hope you like it."
Jane watched on with pride as her girlfriend cuddled into the golden ball of fluff; seeing Maura cooing over an adorable puppy may just be Jane’s new favorite thing.
"Alfred?" Jane scrunched her face but then eased into a smile. "Alfie suits him, why Alfred? Some scientist guys name?" Jane shrugged. "At least you didn’t name him Double Bass or Bassoon." The detective did her best at hiding the smirk on her face, knowing damn well that Maura hated Jane saying Bass was named after an instrument rather than a scientist.
The brunette followed Maura’s lead back into the lounge room, looking down at Alfie following his owner around the house. Suddenly Jane felt shy, she was never one for receiving gifts, it always made her feel rather awkward, especially because not many people knew what to buy the detective; it wasn’t that she was even ungrateful for the gifts she received, but people just didn’t know what to buy the detective, most of the time they didn’t even try. But this was Maura and Maura always, always, ALWAYS, bought the detective exactly what she loved, her best friend turned girlfriend knew her more than anyone.
"Thanks babe," Jane leaned forward and kissed Maura on the tip of her nose before she began opening her gift bag. She removed the paper from top of the bag, and as she looked inside, she felt her heart beat race. "Maur…" Jane pulled the jersey from the bag and held it up. The jersey read "BOSTON" on front, and as Jane turned it around her breath hitched. "PEDROIA" with "15" marked the back…and just under her favorite baseball players number, were the words "To Jane, Thanks for all you do in keeping Boston safe." signed complete with Dustin Pedroia’s signature and "Lasershow" written underneath.
"He…he sighed my name?" Jane stammered. "DUSTIN PEDROIA SIGNED MY NAME? ARE YOU SERIOUS MAURA?" Her eyes lit up as she jumped for joy, the bag she was holding tipped to the side and out rolled a baseball. Jane dashed to get the ball before Alfie could get his teeth marks into it, she held onto the 2013 world series ball that was signed by the entire 2013 Red Sox team. "Are you kidding me right now?" She couldn’t believe it! With the jersey swung over her should and the ball in her right hand, Jane leaped forward and wrapped her arms around Maura’s body, the detective began to jump up and down "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" Came the hurried words. "I love you so much Maura!"
That’s what he thinks…good ol’ Barold just messaged me laughing his tits off because of this.
Can’t wait to tell Maura…hopefully she will get it!
And at the end of a long day, she is my home. My safety. My happy ending.
Maura smiled into their kiss, savoring it before her eyes opened in surprise at the swat to her ass. “Hey!” She feigned a scoff and watched as Jane removed dinner from the oven. The scent made her realize just how hungry she was but apparently dinner would have to wait. “Oh?” She would be lying if she said she hadn’t been dying to know what Jane had gotten her. There had been little hints but nothing she could make out.
At one point during the week when she and Jane were cuddled into the couch, she had stooped to guessing to which Jane teased her for relentlessly until Maura shut her up with a kiss. Now though, as Jane pushed her gently toward the bedroom door, she couldn’t help but feel excited.
Her excitement seemed to grow as Jane’s arms snaked around Maura’s waist. “Jane Rizzoli if this is your way of getting me into bed, you can have that any time you want.” Maura teased lightly, turning her head a little in order to place a kiss to whatever part of Jane’s face she could reach.
Finally, Maura took a quiet breath and opened the door, completely unaware of what was waiting for her on the other side. For a moment, she didn’t see him. In fact, he saw her before she did; all bright eyes and big, clumsy paws as he stood up on the bed and wagged his tail, chew toy forgotten.
The surprise was evident on Maura’s face when all she could do was stand there, speechless until a bouncing ball of golden fur attempted to jump off the bed only to trip over his legs. Of course that didn’t stop him as he bounded over to Maura and sat in front of her patiently, tongue lolling out and tail thumping the hardwood floors.
"Y-you got me a—a puppy? A Golden Retriever?" Maura sank down to her knees, not even caring if her dress got wrinkled as she cupped the soft little head in her hands. The puppy’s tail wagged faster as Maura pressed a kiss to the top of his forehead.
Maura sniffled as the puppy licked her hands. Was she crying? Apparently she was. As a child, Maura had always wondered what it would be like to have a dog and when she asked for one, she was given Bass. Not that she didn’t love Bass, because she did. But this was just… Maura wasn’t sure but something inside her became a little more whole.
Picking up the puppy into her arms, she snuggled the puppy to her chest and smiled when she felt him lick her cheek. “I love him, Jane!” She craned her neck to look up at her girlfriend, excitement shining in her eyes.
"I would get you more than just sex for Valentine’s Day, my love." She whispered into Maura’s ear as the doctor reached and opened the door.
A huge grin spread across the detective’s face as she saw the golden fluff ball on the bed, with her bedroom still in tact. She looked at her girlfriend who stood oblivious to what was happening until the tiny puppy made his way to the two women who stood at the door.
"I got you a puppy," Jane sank down to her knees behind Maura, placing a supportive hand on her shoulder. "I still remember you telling me those stories of how you always wanted a puppy of your own," She leaned back on her ankles to give herself a better view of the scene in front of her. Puppies and girlfriend. Definitely her new love. "It kills me that your parents didn’t allow you to have a dog, I mean, Bass is great but a turtle isn’t the best pet. He’s not really interactive and he’s an ass to play fetch with." Jane’s humor subsided as she saw the tears falling down her lovers face.
"Hey, hey baby no," Jane scooted closer. "Are you…are you crying? Oh god don’t cry, I didn’t mean to make you cry, c’mere." She watched on as Maura placed the puppy in her arms. "Are you sure? I didn’t ruin Valentine’s Day for you? You’re not just saying that?" Jane’s grin matched that of her girlfriends.
Jane snaked her hand around to pet the little terror in Maura’s arms. “Hey!” She frowned. “Where’s your big red bow you little shit?!” She scanned the room and stopped when she found the torn up red ribbon in the corner of the room. “You were supposed to wear that so you looked extra cute!”
Maura could feel her throat burn with tears, but she blinked them back and smiled as Jane spoke. “I know, Jane. I can’t picture my life without you.” She replied softly, moving in close to Jane as the brunette held her. Maura couldn’t help but sigh contently at the embrace, head moving to rest on Jane’s shoulder. It was then one of her favorite songs came on. A grin quirked her lips and she closed her eyes as Jane hummed quietly.
It was a whole different story, however when Jane began to sing softly in Maura’s ear. The low staccato of her girlfriend’s voice sending shivers down her spine. Her smile widened as Jane continued to sing, whispering parts into her ear and making her stomach flip. God she was in love with this woman. There was no doubt about it.
When the song ended, Maura lifted her head to look up at Jane, eyes soft and filled with love and adoration. “I love you, Jane. I am well versed in the English language but I can’t seem to come up with the words that describe what I feel for you… How much I love you.” Maura’s hand reached up to cup Jane’s cheek gently, thumb caressing gently before she leaned in for a kiss. Any other time she’d have to stand on her tiptoes, but luckily her heels gave her a little height.
"Happy Valentine’s day." She murmured against the brunette’s lips before kissing her softly again.
"You make me all mushy and make me feel like I’m walking on air," Jane rubbed her nose against Maura’s. "I’m too bad ass for this."
With one last kiss to the blonde’s mouth and a pat on the ass as she swaggered into the kitchen, Jane walked over to the oven and removed dinner she had spent the last few hours preparing. “You know, I was going to wait until after dinner to give you your Valentine’s present, but I just, I really want to give it to you now.”
Walking over to Maura, Jane grabbed the blonde’s hands and smirked as she gently pulled her in direction of her bedroom. She placed Maura in front of the door and moved behind her, wrapping her arms around the slim waist and leaning into her girlfriend’s ear. “Open the door baby, see what’s inside.”
Maura couldn’t help but feel a warmth spread throughout her heart. To do what Jane was agreeing to took a lot of trust and Maura could see it in Jane’s eyes. She could also see a little insecurity. But Maura didn’t want to do this to get something in return, she just simply wanted to be closer, to love Jane in the most intimate of ways, to show that Jane could trust her with everything.
Not only did Maura feel honored to be trusted but she was also very aroused at what was waiting for her. She met Jane’s eyes again, giving her a chance to change her mind if she wanted, but she didn’t want to wait too long lest either one of them lose their nerve; Because of course Maura was nervous. Yes, she knew the human body like one would know their ABCs, but this was Jane’s body and the things she wanted to do to it…
With her heart beating like a drum, Maura leaned down, lips slowly kissing the inside of Jane’s right thigh, allowing her tongue to peak out and graze soft skin until she finally reached the apex of Jane’s thighs. Maura looked up through hooded eyes and kissed lightly at her pubic bone before she moved lower and allowed her tongue to delve down, tasting her lover.
Immediately her eyes shut and a low moan escaped her mouth. Her mind shut off and all she could focus on was pleasing Jane, tasting her. Her arms wrapped around Jane’s thighs and instinct seemed to take over.
Jane hissed at the first contact of Maura’s tongue inside of her, she bucked her hips upward and arched her back as a long moan coursed from her throat out into the open air.
Oral was never something Jane had felt comfortable with, majority of the time she would flat out refuse it with ex partners just because she didn’t want to return the oral favor, although sometimes, she just had zero confidence to allow a guy to go down on her. But Maura wasn’t a guy, she wasn’t just someone either, she was Maura. She was her best friend, the single person Jane trusted more than anyone in her life. Jane would give her own life up to save Maura.
Allowing Maura to be this intimate with her was terrifying, yet the most sensual thing she had ever felt in her life. She had dreamed of this moment, she couldn’t lie about that, the image of Maura going down on her were some of her most pleasant dreams to ever exist.
"Oh fuck," Her scarred hands found their way into the hair of the beautiful blonde in between her hips. She could feel herself edging closer and closer to release, she began rocking her hips into Maura’s face, matching the blonde’s rhythm.
