Theodore's long fingers smoothed across my stomach as his arm snuggley wrapped itself around my body.

"Blue, stop acting like an animal."

He tugged me to his chest where his other arm wrapped around my shoulders as reinforcement. I grunted as I pushed my body back against his and aimlessly stomped with my feet in the hopes of landing a blow.

"Let. Me. Go." I squirmed in his arms.

"Not until you promise me that you will start to behave. "

I stopped my struggles and sent him my fiercest glare. It was highly effective at home, but Theodore only scoffed and rolled his eyes.

"I'm not a child." I blew a tendril of hair out of my face.

He rolled his eys again, "Could've fooled me. Now, are you going to behave?"

I scrunched my nose and turned away from him, well, as far away as I could with his arms still latched onto me. "I am perfectly behaved."

He snorted, something I've never heard him do before. He must have realized it as well by the way his body froze in surprise. I looked up to see his eyes distant. A small crease appeared between his brows as confusion took over his face.

Someone cleared their throat, breaking whatever small moment that was occurring.

His eyes snapped up, "Everybody out." His arms were still around me and if my mind wasn't playing tricks I swear they tightened the slightest of bits, drawing me impossibly closer to his body.

There were a couple of protests, particularly  from Rose, but everybody eventually filed out of the room.

It was just Theodore and I, all alone.

He didn't waste any time.

With the final click of the door he twirled me around, his hands sliding up my arms and gripping my shoulders in a steely grip. His fingers dug deep into my back, rooting me to the spot.

"What are you doing?" His voice was quiet but strained.

"What do you mean?" His fingers tightened some more at my response. I reached up and gripped his wrists, trying to pull his hands off of me, "Let me go."

"No." His fingers tightened, restraining me further as I pulled against his hands.

"Yes." I grunted.

His voice hardened, "No."

"Yes!" I started yelling as I continued to pull and tug against his wrists. Those stubborn bastards wouldnt budge. "Let. Me. Go!" I planted my hands against his chest and pushed with everything I had to no avail. This was starting to remind me of our first meeting.

"Those are my sisters. They will teach you everything you need to know about being a proper lady."

I paused in my struggle, "Oh a proper lady, huh?" I glared up at him.

"Yes." his eyes scunched in confusion, "That's what we agreed on, isn't it."

I laughed, "Yeah, sure." I drew my words out, "You want me to be the perfect docile woman, don't you?" I relaxed in his hold and I could feel his fingers follow my example.

"Yes." He nodded, "That's what we agreed on."

"It is, isn't it?" I questioned some more.

"Yes. Why are you questioning this?" The corners of his eyes scrunched together, "You're wasting my time." He started to lower his hands.

I reached out and snapped my small hands around his wrists. I clutched them as tightly as I could. I hoped to cause him some pain, but when I looked up into his face I saw nothing but amusement.
