"I've been thinking..." Charlie ventured into the darkness as Susan flitted about in the shadows of her bedroom. She wasn't more than a silhouette in the scant light as she closed the windows and blinds tight for the night.

"Yes?" she encouraged, taking a moment to gather up her hastily shed clothing from earlier and put it in her hamper.

"You're at my flat at the university most weeknights," Charlie began, "and we're here at your flat in the city on the weekends..."

"Well, it does seem to make sense..." Susan agreed. "My flat is closer to the cinema, all the good restaurants..."

"I'm not arguing against the setup," Charlie rushed to say. "It's just..." He took a deep breath. "I was thinking, it's about that time, well..." She paused, standing at the bottom of the bed by the dresser with her hands on her hips looking at him, curious. He ducked his head down beneath his curls under her inquisitive gaze. "Well, I just thought I'd offer you part of my closet."

She clapped a hand over her mouth and he instantly panicked. "Unless that's too official! Too soon!"

"Oh, Charlie," she soothed, removing her hand to reveal a bemused smile. "It's just... It's a lovely sentiment really..." She flicked on a nearby table lamp and then threw open her own closet. Even in the dim light he could tell the small closet was beyond stuffed with Susan's clothing and accessories including dozens of shoeboxes stacked on the floor. "But I can't offer you the same!"

"A drawer maybe?" Charlie tried.

Susan pulled open her top drawer only to let loose an explosion of lacy panties and bras.

"Well, then..." Charlie pulled her back into bed. "Those seem like good reasons to spend all of my weekends here naked."

Smooth Charlie. Really smooth.
