There was something different that night when Helena hugged Dinah. It was a change Dinah had felt from Helena since the day her mother died, actually from the moment she threatened to take her away from the new family she found. At first she took the hug at face value, warm and sisterly, but after the hug the embrace didn’t break. They stayed there, holding on to each other. Helena’s hand gently caressing Dinah’s arm as they looked into each other’s eyes. For the first time ever, Dinah felt truly connected to someone, like Helena was inside of her and she was inside of Helena and they understood each other on a different level. For a moment that feeling, that pull between them was all that existed in the world. Washed over by this feeling Dinah leaned forward and touched the older woman’s lips. When she realized what she had done, she started to pull away, but Helena pulled her close and deepened the kiss. Dinah had only been kissed twice in her life, once when Brad Marshall was dared to do it and when Michael Murphy asked her out just to get in her pants. And it was nothing like this. This was soft and sweet and comforting where as those kisses were sloppy and awkward.

When there lips parted, Dinah didn’t know what to say and Helena didn’t say anything. Helena just smiled at the younger woman, grabbed the two mask she had brought out with her and walked inside. Dinah followed her inside, it was so silent, no Delphi alerts currently, Barbara was out with Wade. Helena was resting on a couch in the loft area and Dinah joined her.

“What was that? Outside I mean?”

“It was a kiss,” Helena said. “The moment came and went, let’s not make a big deal out of it.”

Helena wondered if there was much conviction in her words. The fact was, she hated the fact that all to often, the girl got to her and she went soft. Everyone in her life was pretty good at taking care of themselves and licking there own wounds, but Dinah was different. She was a pretty capable girl, but at the same time she brought this protective vibe out of Helena. Sometimes it seemed like she was the only one who knew what Dinah was going through and she felt a pull toward her she couldn’t fight. She hated it and cherished it all at once. The kid touched a part of her she thought was dead. What scared her was that made her vulnerable, open to all kinds of hurt and pain that she’d rather avoid.

“It is a big deal,” Dinah told her. “I can’t pretend it’s not because I’ve had a crush on you since, god, since the first time I saw you.”

“In the alley?” Helena questioned.

“In my dreams,” Dinah told her. “When the dream began, you were just this happy teenager walking with you mother. I remember thinking your face was the most beautiful face I’ve ever seen. When your mother was shot, I didn’t just see it – I felt your pain, in your voice, in your eyes, I hurt with you. Then I came here and I met you and that connection became something special… I always thought it would never happen. But now, I think maybe we do have a connection.”

A cautious hand found it’s way across Helena’s waist.

“Listen So don’t start something you can’t finish,” Helena told her.

“I always finish what I start,” Dinah replied quickly.

“Oh really?” Helena replied surprised.

Dinah got got closer to Helena. She leaned in and took the other woman’s lips briefly to her own, testing for a reaction. The response was simple, but absolutely said yes.

“I like this side of you kid,” Helena said unable to fight the naughty feeling taking over her mind.

Helena was never one to turn down what was sitting right in front of her. She roughly pulled Dinah’s head to her own and possed the younger girl’s lips. Dinah felt the challenge, asking her if she could meet her on the adult battle field. She met the kiss with the same fierceness that Helena gave to her. She didn’t back down easily when she trained and she certainly wasn’t backing down now.

Helena broke contact long enough to slip Dinah out of her red sweater. Helena kissed down Dinah’s neck to her shoulder and her hands found there way under her shirt. Her hands met Dinah’s breast through the soft cloth of her bra. Helena noticed the satisfied look on Helena’s face that came with this contact. Dinah wanted out of her top and she was soon free from it with a few quick movements. Helena unhooked the girl’s bra and tossed it to the side, then cupped the a breast in each hand, playing with them softly causing a soft satisfied moan from her young partner. Her lips took a taste of one of the girl’s breast and Dinah was lost in this new sensation of delicious satisfaction.

Just when they were getting lost in the moment, they heard the Delphi alert system roar in there ears.

“Fuck,” Helena cursed to herself. “What am I doing?” She got up forcing Dinah to her feet. “Put this on before Barbara gets back,” Helena said retrieving Dinah’s top.

The elevator doors opened quicker than they suspected. Dinah got the shirt back on just as Barbara exited the elevator into the room where the two were waiting. Dinah was throwing her sweater back on as Barbara approached.

“Good, you’re still both here. Luckily I was downstairs,” Barbara began hardly paying any real attention to the girls. “Do you know–” She stopped, finally meeting the eyes of the other two women. She could see the nervous eyes and feel the awkward air in the room as the two looked at her and then at each other.

“Did I miss something?” Barbara asked.

“Just some girl bonding,” Dinah replied with a smile.

Barbara stared at them both for a minute. Dinah fought the smile creeping on her face and she and Helena’s eye’s met. Barbara didn’t push for anymore, she shrugged it off and went to see the cause of the problem.

“I always finish what I start,” Dinah told Helena in a whisper.

“I’m looking forward to it,” Helena told her just before the two of them joined Barbara.
