“It’s just a rare occasion Don’t get too used to it.” He said with a small smirk as he looked down at her. Joe watched her put the cookies in, smiling a bit. “Yeah you should thank me. And you’re very welcome. Just protecting my girl.” He added before gently wrapping his arms around her tiny body as well. “Me? Nope. Not yet. I’m still breathing. I think it might be safe for you to test some out too now.” Joe moved over and scooped up some extra cookie dough on his hand before holding it out for her. “Go ahead. Try it. It’s good. I promise you.”
“I like rare occassions, expected stuff is boring.” She said, wrinkling up her nose before smiling as he said he was just protecting his girl. “I like it when you call me your girl. It’s cute.” She said, hugging him tighter before laughing at his observation, giving off an official nod before letting him go. She watched as he scooped up some cookie dough on his finger and she rose a brow at him. “I definitely hope this isn’t a trick. But it probably shouldn’t be considering I just watched you eat the same thing like, two minutes ago, so why not?” She said with a laugh, walking over to him and darting her tongue out to let it run over his finger, consuming the cookie dough on his hand. After swallowing, she smiled and gave a thumbs up. “I approve, it’s very good. I bet the cookies will taste even better!”
He smirked a bit as she sighed. “Well isn’t it the best job? I get to let you do the work as I eat it. But no worries. I’m testing to make sure their are no poisons for when you get the chance to eat them. Just to make sure of course.” Joe jokes as he leaned against the counter, watching her with a small laugh as she took a bow. “You are very welcome.” Joe smirked and laughed a bit as she continued. “Well I guess I am quite luckily. But you did take away my mixing job so I will call it equal for this time, Lopez. Just this time.”
Lauren laughed and her eyebrows skyrocketed in surprise. “You’re letting us call it equal? That’s almost as rare as you admitting I win at something around here. What’s the occassion?” She asked dramatically, touching a hand to her heart before pulling out the tray to place the cookie batter on. She began to scoop and mold into tiny little cookie dough balls before she placed it in the oven to bake. “Though I guess I should thank you for testing the waters and making sure nothing that was poisonous got to me and then my stomach. Thanks.” She said, walking over to him once she had out the tray in the oven. She wrapped her arms around his waist and smiled into it. “Have you been poisoned yet? Is it safe?”
Joe smiled and leaned back on the counter, watching her, completely amused. “You’re right. It can be a lot of fun. It’ll just be a hassle to clean up, that’s all. But for you, I’ll make a mess. Just for the fun of it.” Once everything was out he laughed, watching her run over to begin mixing all of the ingredients together. “I’ll be in charge of the taste testing then.” He said with a small smirk, sneaking up behind her, taking a bit of the dough on his finger as he took a taste. “Delicious. Absolutely amazing.” Joe said with a small smile.
Lauren smiled when he agreed to make a mess with her and jumped up a little in her excitement, celebrating it. She rolled her eyes when he announced that he was going to be in charge of taste testing and she stuck her tongue out of the side of her mouth at him. “Of course you’re going to be taste tester.” She said, sighing as he took some and tasted it. However, she couldn’t help but giggle when he complimented her work and she gave a dramatic little curtesy. “Why, thank you. I try. And also, it’s a good thing you’re cute because otherwise, I never would have let you get away with taking the job of taste tester away from me.”
“Surprise you? I think I can do that. At any moment I can attack and we can have some fun.” He said with a wink and watched her leaning against the counter. “Some of each? That’ll make a mess.” Joe laughed lightly and grabbed everything else they would need, going through everything. “I think this is enough stuff for what we’re making.” Joe grabbed a few things. “I say we make chocolate chip cookies first!” He reasoned and began to separate the wet and dry ingredients into the bowl. “What do you want to be in charge of, missy?” He asked turning over to her for a moment.
“Sounds like a plan.” Lauren said, laughing a little along with him as she watched him grab all the ingredients. “So?! Messes can be fun if they’re cleaned up afterwards!” She pointed out, grinning when he suggesting making chocolate chip cookies first. “Sure, that sounds exciting. I like chocolate chip.” She agreed willingly, grabbing a spoon off the counter and smiling childishly. “I want to be in charge of mixing it! That’s the most fun part!” She squealed over-excitedly, dashing over to the bowl and beginning to stir the ingredients.
“Why can’t we leave the house naked? Besides the fact we’d probably get arrested it could be a lot of fun. We’d just need a huge fucking amount of suntan lotion during the summer.” Joe said with a small laugh before listening to her logic. “It might be kinda gross. I have to agree with you on that one, Lo.” Joe smiled widely and chuckled lightly. “Always huh? Well I will have to find some places and times and then we can start the fun.” Joe put her down in the kitchen before going around and grabbing some of the ingredients and such that they would need. “What kind of cookies? We can make oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, anything you would like.”
“Well because I don’t want everyone seeing you naked. Only me.” She explained, laughing a little at his explanation as she walked into the house after him. “Yes, always. And great. I would say let me know when you think of those times and places, but I really like to be surprised so you should just go with instinct.” She said simply, leaning against the counter and pressing her lips together as she tried to think of what type of cookies they should make. “Um, let’s make some of each! I can’t decide.” Lauren answered, walking up closer to where he was standing and grabbing some of the tools and utensils they would need in order to make such things.
“We can live like nudists. That could be a lot of fun.” He said with a smirk. “Only if you want to that is.” Joe smiled even wider as he heard her laughing. “I know I am. You’re not completely sane yourself, Miss. Lopez!” Joe said and looked at her with a big smile as he finished bouncing her up and down. “I’ll get you a diaper. It’ll all work out, no problem. I have it under control.” Joe raised his eyebrows a bit as she said that. “What do I want to do? You of course.” He smirked and let out a small chuckle. “But I think we’ve done that a lot lately so we might as well think of something else that is fun to do.” Joe carried her inside the house and looked around. “You want to make cookies or something?”
Lauren smiled and shook her head at the silliness of the dea. “Sure Joe, we can live like nudists. But then we’d also have to live like hermits because we’re not leaving the house naked.” She pointed out, shrugging when he said she wasn’t completely sane herself. “I really can’t argue with that logic, it’s actually pretty true. But bro, I do not think you would want to get me a diaper because then you’d probably have to change my diaper too and that would be weird.” She said, raising her own eyebrows at his comment. “Me? Well you can always do me. I won’t object.” Lauren said smiling a little at him. “Name a time and place. But sure, we can bake cookies together if you want to.” She agreed, nodding her head.
He nodded his head with a small smirk. “You’re right. I wouldn’t be a huge fan of that. Unless I was the only one who was seeing you like that.” Joe laughed lightly and kissed her nose. “I know I know. I’m just teasing you about it. Being an adorable son of a bitch is a pretty good thing I guess.” Joe shook his head and pretended to bounce her up and down like an infant. “I dunno about that. You’re still pretty light in my arms. Equivalent to a baby.” He kept his arms around her to support her body as he looked down at her., smiling wider as he felt her lips on his neck. “I will never get tired of holding you. Now if you’re tired of being held, that’s different. I’ll put you down if that’s the case. Otherwise you’re mine forever.” He said with a fake evil laugh, wrapping his arms around her tighter.
Lauren smiled happily and nodded. “I knew it. And hey, I’m not opposed to walking around shirtless in the house if you take yours off too. We can have shirtless days together.” She said with a laugh, only laughing harder when he started bouncing her up and down. “Oh my god, you’re nuts.” She giggled as she was bounced. When she was finally done being bounced, she shook her head. “I don’t mind if you hold me forever, but that might not work out because at some point I’ll probably have to pee or something.” She pointed out rationally, squeezing him tighter. “What do you want to do now, Mr. Batman? I do believe it’s your turn to choose.”
“Don’t be afraid of that. I chose you and you only.” He said and poked her nose gently as he was speaking. “Even if others fall at their feet to see me, you’re the only one who matters.” Joe smiled a bit to himself as he saw the blush rising to her cheek. “I can deal with being called a handsome man. It might be better than being an adorable son of a bitch.” Joe teased her as he held onto her tiny body tighter to his body. “Like a baby?” He said with a small laugh. “Well you are as light as a baby so I guess that’s true.” Joe glanced down at her head on his shoulder and let a small smile play on his lips as he felt her playing with his hair. “and I love you. More than anyone.” He whispered back to her, kissing the side of her head.
“Yeah, I know that. But how would you feel if I walked around shirtless? Would you be okay with that even though I chose you as well?!” She asked, laughing a little as he teased her about the while adorable son of a bitch thing. “Oh shut up, you know I meant that in an endearing way.” Lo said, smiling when he said she was as light as a baby. “That cannot even be half true. Baby’s weigh like 10 pounds and I’m short, but I do weigh a little more than ten pounds.” She corrected him, biting her lip to keep her smile from growing even wider when he said he loved her more than anyone. “I love you more than anyone too. I love you so much.” She whispered back, kissing the side of his neck since that was the closest thing to her. “Are you getting tired of holding me yet?”
“Oh I’m allowed to do that? How kind of you.” He said with a small laugh. “I’ll take it off for you and you only.” Joe kept an arm around her and smiled wide as he felt her own arm wrap around his waist. “Of course you are the pretty lady! You’re a gorgeous and amazing woman.” He said and wrapped his own arms around her waist as she hugged him. Joe looked down at her as her face rested on his chest. He laughed lightly as she said that. “I am? Well how kind of you to think that of me.” Joe said and picked her up, helping her to wrap her legs around his waist as he held her close to him.
Lauren smiled contently and nodded. “Sounds fair enough to me. And hey, I cannot help it that I’m afraid someone is going to pick you up if you keep your shirt off in public. People probably already try to pick you up, the shirtless thing would only enhance that.” She said, blushing a little at his compliment. “If I’m the pretty lady, then you’re the handsome man.” Lauren countered, laughing a little at his reply. “Oh hush, you know I meant it in a good way.” Lauren said, wrapping her legs around his waist when she was picked up and resting her head on his shoulder. “being in this position makes me feel kind of like a baby or something, but I really don’t mind.” She commented randomly, playing a little with the strands of hair on the back of his head and sighing happily. “I love you.”
He watched as she looked down and pouted. “Don’t be sorry. I’ll be fine. It’s only a bruise.” He gently put his fingers on the corners of her mouth and turned her pout into a smile. “Don’t be upset about it.” Joe said with a slight chuckle. “I’ll survive. It just hurt like hell.” As she kissed his bruise, Joe smiled softly and shook his head a bit. Once she began talking he laughed lightly. “For you, I’ll keep my shirt down out here.” Joe said and fixed his shirt a bit as he continued to look at her. He slid his arm around her shoulder and nodded a bit at her. “That’s my job. Protect the pretty lady.” He said and rested his head on top of her own as he pulled her a bit closer to him.
Lauren shrugged. “I still feel bad. I don’t liken knowing that you were in pain and have a bruise like that. It’s pretty nasty.” She pointed out, laughing a little after he tried to turn her frown upside down. When he agreed to keep his shirt down, she smiled happily and gave a firm nod. “Good.” She said, observing as she watched him fix his shirt. “But feel free to take it off when you’re indoors. I’m totally okay with that. In fact, I’m more than okay with it.” She said honestly, her smile growing wider as he wrapped an arm around her shoulder. “Aw, shucks, I’m gonna blush. I’m a pretty lady?!” She asked as she wrapped her arms around his waist, careful to avoid the bruise as she pressed her face into his chest. “Joe Walker, you adorable son of a bitch.”
