Bonfire Night

A beautiful spring day has given oven to a lovely spring evening. The sun is setting in shades of rose and gold and Frea is watching it with the sort of expression most women save for their lovers. The birds in the trees are singing their goodnights; a breeze plays with the hem of her dress, tangling it around her legs and sometimes revealing lengths of creamy skin. The basket in her arms is full of all sorts of good things.

As far as firsts go, it's been a gloriously good day for the May Queen. She couldn't have hoped for much she didn't get, and the surprises are more than enough to make up for any dreams not yet met. She got to meet a sweet dog and handsome men. That's pretty much a perfect day for her any day of the week. The sun slips down another sliver's worth and the light shifts with it; her shadow stretches long and longer behind her. Soon, she thinks, he'll be here soon. Her head tilts down and her eyes shift away for the moment when the sunlight is too direct to be comfortable.

The perfect time for an ambush, if anyone was so foolish.

He doesn't find it all that surpising that she's there first. Not to say that he presumes she had nothing to do, or nowhere else to be, but there's something about the outdoors that just feel like they are her domain. Her presence there in the lush of the grass seems as natural as the trees that are rooted there in the ground. The truth is, this space pirate knows very little about Frea other than what he presumes to be true about her.

He hopes to have learned more by the time their fire has died out, but even if he doesn't that's alright too. He doesn't need every detail to be able to appreciate what's in front of him. Hell, it's what he asks of everyone who keeps his company, after all.

Ambush is a strong word, but he is trying to sneak up on her. He doesn't even realize that he's trying to surprise a goddess of spring. How audacious that he would even try something so bold in what may could potentially be a kingdom of hers. Han is pretty adept at sneaking, but he's wearing boots and many of his skills that he honned during his Trader's Luck days are rusty. Perhaps if she's distracted enough, she won't realize that he's there before she feels a calloused hand caress her midback.

It's a bad idea to read in too deeply into what someone you just met, isn't it? That said, he finds it interesting that she would offer that phrase to him. Is she really concerned at how he approaches other women? Makes him wonder if she does and what the rationale is behind it.

"Nope." He murmurs with a slight shake of his head and an appreciative look over her. He hasn't gotten a chance to really admire her from behind and in this instance, he wants her to be catching him looking. "You're the first I've used that greeting on in at least two cycles and for the record, your reaction to it was a lot better."

Han is clad in clothing typical of him. Notably, his favorite blue jacket that still registers very true to his sense of utilitarian style, but looks slightly more dressy than the vest does. His wearing the tan pants that display his second class Correlian Blood Stripe - a yellow one - up the side seam and a standard white shirt.

In the Captain's free hand is something wrapped up in butcher's paper and bound up with twine.

The sound of a carefree laugh is a kind of music to the ears. It's been a long couple of weeks for him in the Nexus and for one reason or another, there just haven't been a lot of opportunity for him to enjoy things. Damn if it isn't nice to have something ... uncomplicated.

"I've been slapped before." Tough as that is to imagine. "That one was memorable. I think my ear was ringing for an hour."

Truthfully, someone a little harder on the eyes would probably have to try a little harder than Han does. He has simple taste in clothes, but then, it's not as if he could afford high fashion even if he was inclined to wear it.

With her hand on his chest, she can feel all kinds of things. Skin, if not directly, then through his shirt which isn't especially thick. He's warm to the touch and dry. His musculature, which is that of someone who works very hard, but rarely eats in abundance. And his heart, which is starting to beat faster, now that she's put her hand on him, but isn't racing per se.

She'll notice a trend of it beating harder and faster as her hand lingers.

"I'm glad you're here too."

"It might be that my aim had been a little lower that time." He admits with a smile that, for some reason, suggests that he's only partly sorry about that at best. "I prefer to frame it as enjoying the moment, but yeah, sometimes I'll make the same mistake more than once if it seems like it's worth it."

Taking in all kinds of detail is a worthy endeavor. It doesn't dawn on him that she's doing that as much as he thought she might be savoring the moment as he is. She makes him feel like he doesn't want to rush a damn thing, which, is actually atypical for him, but it's nice to slow things down.

Han might have tried to draw her into him for this kiss, when he sees that it settled into something so confident and easy, but they're both kinda holding things at the moment. So he'll just make sure that she gets something in the same vein from him in terms of his response. He can't quite replicate the soft though, his kiss back is something of a slow burn, leisurely yet ... intense.

The Captain makes no move at all to break up that moment and if it's up to him, it will be the kind of display that people will walk by and feel a bit of a blush just glimpsing at it. When it does seem like the moment has run it's course, he will offer an appreciative nod and this thought, "you did take good care of it. In fact, returned it in better shape than I remember leaving it."

"I'm a bad person to ask, being a throw caution to the wind kind of guy."

And Han is the kind of man that can kiss you senseless in the middle of a conversation and keep right on talking afterward. He's special that way. It's just one of those things, in the some of all of them, that makes Captain Solo unique.

She is right about them needing to get moving on the fire building, though. It being already dusk.

"How well do you know the layout of the land around here?" He asks while his eyes drift around their outdoorsy setting. The key will be finding dry wood to burn, which, shouldn't be all that hard to do since the weather has been mild lately.

"Haven't really been to this part of the Nexus till today, but it's been pretty good to me so far."

Help away, darling. He can use all the help you're willing to offer.

His hand slips into hers almost as soon as he sees it offered to him. Once again, he can't help but notice how his feels so different than hers, a lot smoother, but then ... it's not much of a surprise considering. Almost everyone's is.

Merchants and travelers trying to muscle them out of this site would have to contend with a Han Solo motivated to impress a woman. There are few things this man can't do with that brand of inspiration.

"This is a nice spot." He says as he glances around. Once again, he's going to default to the fact that she's more knowledgeable of the area. "Think the food is safe if we set it down somewhere or should we hang on to it?"

Because they can combine all the food stuffs into the basket and one of them can carry it around while the other one of them gathers easily enough. It's just that they're not really going to be able to do the hand holding much while that's going on.

Few people get to know Han well enough to realize that he could be the poster boy for closet romantics. The embrace of the 'tough guy, I don't need anyone' attitude is only a facade for others and a means to put a little distance between himself and the things that might hurt him. At any rate, he'd certainly try to defend her if she needed defending, although since it's Han ... it may be less chivalrous knight and more pirate protecting his treasure.

Leaving their food undefended? It's a suggestion that feels like a hard and unanticipated poke in the rib to him. He went to bed hungry too many times growing up to make him completely accepting of the idea, even if he doesn't voice it out loud. It's the fact that she wraps it in kindness that makes it plateable for him and the belief that between the two of them, they'd find a way to salvage the evening - even if something happened to their dinner.

It will be very interesting to see how much the two of them learn about each other. That they both have sides to themselves that perhaps maybe the other shouldn't see ... just continues the interesting blend they have of things in common as well as things they seem to be polarized on.

Han hands over the meat. When it's placed into the basket, they can get to finding their tinder. It will take more time if they're resolute to remain touching, but he's absolutely fine with that. He was starved for gentle touch growing up and there isn't all that much in his life now, either. He bends down to grab when he sees something he thinks is going to burn.

Though he seems equally as focused on his company as he does so. "So I feel like I would have noticed you before if you had been here long."

To that he would say, you never benefit yourself from seeming like the toughest guy in the room either. That just gets you a different kind of the wrong attention and into a different kind of trouble. Believe it or not, he likes to avoid trouble. Especially when Chewbacca isn't at his side.

Though, it does seem as if he will eventually have to let her go, won't he? That ... is something he's used to. In this instance, it's for a good cause and he suspects, he'll get a chance to hold it again.

Amused he listens to her retelling of their time apart. Funny that it seems to involve where she was in regard to certain focal points of nature around here and what animals were present.

"I meant the wider scope of here." He says with a smile. "As in, when you arrived in the Nexus."

So far, so good in handling the sprightly little blonde, but you never know. There's always the chance he might be wishing for a wookiee bodyguard by the end of the night. It's not as if he hasn't had his ass kicked by a woman he underestimated before.

"And I happened to be exactly where I needed to be to meet you." He drawls. "Makes me wonder if it was fate."

There's a nice dry looking length of a tree branch over there. Bet he could get a nice bundle of stuff to burn if he broke it down a little bit. If she looks over, she'll see him wrestling with a sizeable branch and carefully snapping it into smaller pieces with purposeful stomps of his boot heel.

He wouldn't use the blaster to bust up a dry tree branch. Almost everything else is fair game, though. Here's hoping his gun happiness doesn't become too much of a turn-off for her.

Did she say too dark for him? What does that mean, he'll wonder briefly.

It's not long that he's breaking up those sticks, though, and he'll go on to gather just a little bit more before meeting up with her again at the fire pit. He thinks they've got enough to keep the flames going for at least a few hours.

"A few weeks." Han answers as he begins arranging some of their collected materials into a configuration that will start a good camp fire. Bonfire would be a little bit of a stretch considering the side, but this will be nice too. Perhaps even more intimate.

"No." He says a little too quickly when it's his turn talk. Then Han shakes his head and backpedals a bit. "The Nexus is alright, but I'm not one of those people who can come and go as they please, yet."

He and The May Queen don't know each other very well yet, but he's noticed she's pretty perceptive. He's got this impression that he doesn't have to elaborate as to why a pilot might hate being stuck in the same place.

"You love it already, huh?" He murmurs and withdraws an old fashioned matchbook for the igniting of this fire. His sure hands withdraw one match from the row and turning to the back, he strikes the matchhead on the abrasive strip. It comes to life in a orange glow on the first try.

He wastes no time getting that new flame to the dry grass to start their fire. It's a very slow start and Han adjust his position to block the light wind from his vulnerable fire.

"Why's that?"

It's fortunate for Han that blaster bolts aren't that combustable when you think about it.

There fire seems to be growing at a rate that the Captain finds sufficient. Her leaning in to make the right addition to the flames at the right times also meets his approval. He didn't expect that from her, but he finds that he's glad that she's willing to contribute without hesitation.

"I wasn't trying to bait you for that answer, darling." He murmurs, though the lopsided smile suggests that he didn't mind hearing it. "I was hoping for more of that enlightenment that I got when I asked you why you love spring."

Sorry to disappoint.

Catch it soon does. As it does, Han will find some of the bulkier pieces of dry wood among their collection of burning materials and set them in the healthy looking flames. A nice even burn is what they'll need to roast that meat, already cubed and ready to be skewered, that he brought for the occasion.

"You are very enamoured with nature, I've noticed." It's not a judgement for better or worse, but an observation. With his work being so tied into networks of criminals, he rarely gets outside of spaceports anymore. As such, he doesn't meet many people like Frea or get out and appreciate many of the things she speaks so highly of.

"Have you always been this way?"
