Summary: Just a relaxing day at a lake and a supper with a special dessert.

I don't own Xena, Gabrielle...and so on (c'mon you know what I mean).

As for adult relationship, it's alternative f/f sex. Well, there is some sex - not very graphic though.


Just a Day at a Lake
The Little Dragon

"It's beautiful," Gabrielle sighed. They had been walking for days on and on seeing just rocks and more rocks. This lake was a pleasant change.

"Yeah, it is," Xena replied, entirely not looking at the lake. She just looked at Gabrielle. Beautiful she surely was.

"Xena, c'mon. Let's rest a while here. It's just wonderful."

Whatever Gabrielle wanted Xena wanted. "Alright then," Xena said.

"Great!" Gabrielle replied.

And so they made camp near the beautiful lake. It surely was beautiful, Xena thought, with that waterfall and the clear water and all. Xena was glad she gave the bard her way. She sure had a feel for beautiful places.

"Are you coming, Xena?"

Gabrielle woke Xena out of her thoughts. "Uh yeah, sure." Xena dove into the water. Hmm it's nice and warm, Xena thought.

"C'mon, teach me how to fish already!" Gabrielle said impatiently.

"Yeah, yeah. Hold your horses!" Xena casually replied.

Gabrielle wasn't all that interested in fishing but she would do just anything to get Xena into the water. She looked great, wet and all. She could just look at Xena forever. Those eyes and that hair and...

"Gabrielle. Gabrielle. GABRIELLE!!!"

"Huh? Oh er..."

"If you wanna learn something then pay attention."

"Uh huh."

"Good. Now, so you watch for some fish and..."

Gabrielle learned how to fish Xena-style that afternoon, but it didn't go very fast.

"Gabrielle, can you get some firewood while I catch us some dinner?"

"Yeah sure, Xena." Gabrielle knew that Xena meant: hey, I'm gonna skin an animal very soon. Xena knew that Gabrielle just couldn't see that.

Xena hoped Gabrielle caught the message. She didn't want to seem bossy. But she guessed Gabrielle knew.


Xena should have caught killed and skinned dinner by now, Gabrielle thought after having gone round the lake twice. As she approached camp she yelled at Xena, "Have you skinned dinner yet?!"

Well, so much for tactics, Xena thought. "Yeah, it's dead and skinned. And on the fire."

"Great. I'm starving!"

"Gabrielle, you're always starving," Xena replied.

"Well, I just like eating."

"It's alright, Gabrielle."

"So, what'd you catch anyway?"

"A rabbit and some fish."

"Like we haven't seen enough fish already."

"Then you catch something," Xena replied, a little agitated.

"I'll eat the fish." Gabrielle sat down and dug in, and the fish tasted better than she expected. Xena usually wasn't the greatest cook.

"Like it?" Xena inquired.

"Yeah, it's real good. Can I have that recipe?"

"Uh, well I just threw some stuff together at random."

Oh, that was typical, Gabrielle thought.

"Ready for dessert?" Xena asked.

"Dessert?!" How luxurious. Usually a dead rabbit was all there was to eat.

"Yeah, just wait and see," Xena said with a smile.

Gabrielle was getting curious. "What are we having, Xena?"

"It's a surprise."

"C'mon, Xena. Tell me," the bard whimpered, "or just give a hint."

"A hint, huh?" Xena didn't know a good hint for the wine and honey she had found. Gabrielle loved honey. "Euh, it's red and golden."


"That's all the hints you're getting."

"That's not fair!" Gabrielle said and she jumped to overpower her friend. Gabrielle knew this attempt would be futile. Warrior Princess against bard? Yeah, she'd lose. So what? It was fun.

Xena was surprised by Gabrielle but quickly regained her senses. And she turned so she lay on top of her favorite bard.

"Almost gotcha." Gabrielle smiled.

"Yeah, almost."

Xena suddenly had an idea. Quickly she blindfolded Gabrielle. "Ready for dessert?"

"Xena, what are you doing?"

"You'll see. Or maybe not, but you'll surely taste." Xena grabbed the honey and dunked her fingers into it, then she fed the honey to Gabrielle, who eagerly licked all the soft honey off of Xena's fingers.

"Oh, Xena. You know how much I love honey."

"Yeah I do," Xena replied with a big smile on her face as she fed Gabrielle some more.

"Hmm, this is great stuff, Xena. Where did you get it?"

"I found it in a nearby tree and bought some wine so it would be a special evening. Y'know, our night off." Xena took off the blindfold.

"Liked it?" Xena inquired.

Like it? I love it, Gabrielle thought. Especially the fact that she got to lick it off of Xena's fingers. "Yeah, I liked it."

"Well, there's plenty and don't forget the wine," Xena said as she poured two glasses. "To our friendship!" They both took a sip.

"This is good wine," Gabrielle said.

"Only the best for my bard," Xena said jokingly, but she meant it. Gabrielle blushed a little. They took another glass of wine. Xena stared into the fire, she thought about how good it felt when Gabrielle licked the honey from her fingers. Heaven.

"You're quiet all of a sudden," said Gabrielle with a hint of concern in her voice. She hated it when Xena didn't say what was bothering her.

"Oh, eh sorry," Xena said. "Want some more wine?" she quickly asked.

"Yeah, I'd love some wine." Gabrielle knew that she should have said no, since the world started turning a little.

Xena felt a little of the wine's influence too.

"Can I have some more honey, honey?" Gabrielle asked in a naughty tone. What was I thinking, Gabrielle thought. Could I be more obvious?

What was this? Did Gabrielle just say that? Or was it a dream? (what a dream!) Xena grabbed some honey and Gabrielle started licking Xena's fingers.

What the hell am I doing? Gabrielle thought.

Oh that feels nice. Xena almost moaned, but she swallowed it away.

A drop of honey fell down on Xena's knee. Gabrielle looked at it. Should I or shouldn't I? Gabrielle licked the drop from Xena's knee.

Xena thought she would die of desire right there. Gabrielle was licking her knee. What would happen if she spilled some on her breasts? That thought alone made Xena go crazy with desire. She dropped some honey on her breasts.

Gabrielle looked up and saw Xena 'spilling' some honey on her breasts.

Would she do it? Yes! Gabrielle went straight for her target and licked all the honey off. Xena shivered. She did it.

When Gabrielle was done licking she looked at Xena. She just glanced into those blue eyes. Xena pulled her near, their mouths dangerously close together. Finally Xena leaned forward and brushed her lips against Gabrielle's. Gabrielle eagerly opened her mouth, their tongues intertwined in a long and passionate kiss. When their lips finally parted, Xena pulled back to gaze into the green eyes of her love.

"You sure you want this?"

"Yeah, Xena. More than anything!"
