Jed sank back into the couch as Abbey pressed against him. He wrapped his arms around her as they continued to kiss.
Finally, Abbey pulled away. She leaned her head against his chest, "Jed?"
Jed groaned, "Abbey..."
Abbey raised her head and began leaving a trail of tiny kisses along his jaw and down his throat, "Please? You promised I could have anything I wanted if I apologized..."
"What?" Abbey responded as she slowly began to undo his tie.
"Hmm?" She muttered as she began to unbutton his shirt.
Jed struggled to keep his breathing even, "You know that everyone saw us fighting earlier? It's going to be on the news tonight."
"That's true," Abbey replied as she wrapped her legs around his body. "But, we're not fighting now, are we?"
"No, we're not fighting now," he responded. "But Abbey-"
He was silenced when Abbey leaned over and captured his mouth with her own. Abbey snaked her arm behind his back and raked her fingers through his hair. After a long moment, Abbey released his lips, "Jed?"
"What?" came her husband's hoarse reply.
"I apologize and..."
"Yes?" he muttered as Abbey ran her hands down his chest.
"And you give me..." Abbey said as she began a new trail of kisses along his jaw. "Child labor... yes?"
"Okay," Jed breathed.
"Good!" Abbey exclaimed, jumping off the couch. "You can go back to work now." She hid her grin from her husband by turning her back to him.
Jed sat there for a moment; She'd done it again. He shook his head, "No, uh- uh. You're not getting out of this that easy young lady! Not after I got called stupid in my own office!" He vaulted off the couch.
"Who's problem is that?" Abbey retorted, fighting to keep from laughing.
"It's about to be yours!" Jed answered as he picked her up off the ground. "Let's go."
"Jed put me down!" Abbey yelped.
"I fully intend to, once we get to our destination!" Jed replied as he walked out of her office and down the hallway.
"And, just where might that be?" Abbey questioned.
Jed looked her in the eye, "After that performance, you really need to ask me that question?"
