“Skin Deep” Watchers Season 3
story was written for Angie as part of the Watchers Auction for WriterCon 2006.
It is set in the middle of “Skin Deep” when Kennedy finds Rowena in The
Alcove getting drunk after Willow has broken up with her. Rowena surprises
Kennedy by kissing her, and Kennedy surprises herself by actually enjoying it.
When Rowena flirts with her more, Kennedy immediately makes Rowena leave and
calls them a cab. I’ve included the last part of that scene from “Skin
Deep” to establish the setting, and I’ve also included parts of the later
scenes to close it out. I know that the original portion of this story isn’t
very long, but it was the best I could do given my current situation. Hopefully,
Angie won’t feel cheated. One more thing: I am violating the “no thoughts”
rule that Watchers usually abides by. Oh,
and many thanks to Lilly, who beta-read for me! Go Lilly!

Rowena didn’t say anything, Kennedy turned to face her. The watcher cupped the
slayer’s cheek and brought their lips together in a hot burning kiss before
she slowly pulled back.

Finally, the words pushed through her lips.

Rowena asked as she played with the lapel of Kennedy’s coat.
not sure if it’s the fact that it actually happened, or, the fact that I
actually enjoyed it a little…for some twisted, psychotic reason. Either way,
there’s some kind of serious freak happening now.”
smiled. “We could do further experiments – see if we can identify the type
of freak,” the watcher said as her fingers made lazy trails over Kennedy’s
jaw line. “After all, I’m curious – what made you such a great lover?”
looked at Rowena for a long moment then slipped from her barstool and took
Rowena’s coat from the back of her chair. She opened it and held it out for
go,” was all Kennedy said as she slipped it around Rowena.
Cab – Moments Later
telling the cab driver the address, Kennedy sat back in her seat and tried to
get comfortable. She glanced over at Rowena. The blonde watcher had unbuttoned
her coat and was giving the slayer her best coquettish grin.

eyes were instantly drawn to the watcher’s lower lip. Stop that! she chided herself. Kennedy looked away and leaned back
up to talk through the window in the safety glass. “Can you turn up the
heat?” she asked the cab driver.
lady, that’s as hot as it gets back there,” he replied.
Damn. Kennedy leaned back and started to turn to
Rowena, but found the watcher suddenly right beside her, facing her, closing up
the space between them.
once again trailed her fingers along Kennedy’s jaw line. “You could warm me up,” she suggested before leaning closer. She
let her hot breath tickle the slayer’s ear as she whispered, “All that
fire…come on…melt the ice queen…”
Rowena pulled back and stared into her eyes, Kennedy stared back. The slayer’s
heart was racing, and her breathing picked up. Her gaze flitted from Rowena’s
eyes to her mouth and back again. The slayer unconsciously licked her own lips.
Kennedy’s internal voice told her. Don’t
do it. Don’t—
voice of warning was cut off when Rowena made the first move, resting her hand
at the back of Kennedy’s neck and pulling her close for another hot kiss.
Rowena kissed her thoroughly, earnestly, and it wasn’t long before Kennedy was
eagerly kissing her back.
slayer shifted in her seat and brought both hands to the watcher’s face as
they deepened their kiss. She pressed forward, leaning Rowena back, until she
had to put an arm at the blonde’s back to hold her in place. She began kissing
her way toward Rowena’s ear, and when she flicked her tongue over the soft ear
lobe, she was rewarded with a small shudder and gasp from Rowena.
leaned Rowena back up, burying her face at the hollow of Rowena’s neck as she
effortlessly lifted the watcher into her lap. When Rowena straddled Kennedy’s
legs, she let out a soft moan, which made a greedy grin appear on the slayer’s
grabbed the front lapels of Rowena’s unbuttoned coat. In a series of quick
movements, she pushed the coat off the blonde’s shoulders, let it drop halfway
down her back, then pulled it forward again, pinning the watcher’s arms at her
sides and revealing more of the soft, white skin of her neck. Kennedy yanked
Rowena closer and hungrily dove in, planting kisses and nips and licks along her
neckline, moving upwards toward her ear.
Rowena managed to croak before Kennedy began tickling her ear with her tongue.

eyes with the brunette, freezing them both in place. They were breathing hard,
practically panting, as Rowena slowly shrugged her coat off and let it drop to
the cab floor.
hadn’t noticed Rowena’s appearance in the bar, but from her current point of
view, she definitely took note. The watcher was wearing a black, scoop-necked
pullover that hugged her body, and she wasn’t wearing a bra. Even in the
darkened cab, which was lit only by the street lights and signs, she could see
every curve of Rowena’s breasts. She could even see points of her nipples,
pressing against the tight fabric.
leaned forward and reached for Rowena, but the blonde caught her arms, raised
them over her head, and pushed her back against the seat, holding the younger
woman in place. Rowena looked into Kennedy’s eyes, willing her to stay put.
When she released the slayer’s arms, she was surprised to find Kennedy
remaining totally still. Rowena’s lips curled up in the slightest smirk before
she turned her eyes to Kennedy’s coat.
wobbled a bit as she sat on Kennedy’s lap, but she managed to find the zipper
of Kennedy’s coat. She let out a playful, husky laugh as she gradually
unzipped the coat. When it was open, she reached back up for Kennedy’s arms
and pulled them down. Then she helped Kennedy out of her coat.
dropping the coat to the seat, Rowena rested her hands against the seat above
Kennedy’s shoulders. She leaned down and kissed Kennedy—softly, slowly,
sensuously, as if savoring her. Kennedy did the same, running her hands along
Rowena’s thighs, over her ass, and along her lower back.
their kissing became more intense, Kennedy pulled at Rowena’s shirt tail,
easing it out of the top of her jeans. When the blouse was free, Kennedy slid
her hands underneath the fabric until she could feel the smooth skin of
arched up at Kennedy’s touch, and Kennedy took the opportunity to capture one
of Rowena’s nipples in her mouth. She gently nibbled at it through the
material, causing the watcher’s breathing to rapidly increase. She switched to
the other breast and then back again several times until Rowena was squirming in

forward and then back. Kennedy froze. Rowena just looked confused. Kennedy
peeked around Rowena’s body to look at the cab driver.

wiped an area clean. Then she giggled.

finger on Kennedy’s nose—or tried to anyway. She missed and hit her cheek.
She tried again and got it. “Time for you…to get me…home safe and

began searching her coat pockets ineffectually, but eventually came up with a
set of keys. She tried unsuccessfully to isolate the correct key, furrowing her
brow as she attempted to concentrate. Kennedy rolled her eyes.

Kennedy went through the keys, Rowena hugged her from behind, reaching under her
coat to caress the slayer’s sides and stomach. When Rowena touched a ticklish
spot, Kennedy giggled.

That’s what’s wrong!”

Slowly, Rowena came over.
