DISCLAIMERS: Paramount owns Star Trek and the universe therein. I have just taken my friends out for a little joyride. And I do mean a joyride. I promise to bring them back unharmedÖ only a lot happier.

"Can I touch you there?" Ė written by M. Bolton and R.J. Lange. Performed by M. Bolton and used here without permission. The song just screams for a J/C pairing, so after haunting me in my dreams for months, I had to write one!

WARNING: This story is most definitely NC-17Ö so anyone who is under eighteenÖplease donít read this!!! Come back when youíre old enough.

DEDICATION: Although this is not the first story I have written, it is the first one Iím posting for the entire world to read. So it only makes sense to dedicate it to the one person who got me hooked on the Web in the first place. Lady1970, this oneís for you. If not for her urgings of "Give us more!!" I would still be writing PG stuff.

Thank you for letting me babble, now onto the story....


Kathryn Janeway pulled open the patio doors, the noise from the party outside spilling into the house. She quickly stepped through the door and pulled it shut, cutting off the noise.

She passed through the kitchen, looking for her husband and stopped when she entered the living room, a smile coming to her face.

There in the recliner lay her husband, snoring softly with a book lying on his chest. His reading glasses were perched on his nose, which he wriggled with each inhaled breath.

She chuckled as she walked towards him.

"The poor dear." She thought to herself. "Iíll let him sleep a little longer. After all, he did get up early and get everything ready."

She lifted the book off his chest and placed it on the table next to the chair. She then gently removed the glasses from his face.

"He is as handsome now as he was the day we married." She thought, running her fingers lightly through his now gray hair. She smiled as she thought about her wedding day. "That was the happiest day of my life."

Her thoughts were interrupted as she heard the patio door open.

"GRAM!" Her granddaughterís voice filtered through the house. "Gram, are you in here?"

Her granddaughter entered the living room.

"Oh! Iím sorry." She whispered as she noticed Kathryn standing in front of her grandfather with her finger to her lips. "Sorry, Gram. I didnít know Gramps was sleeping."

Kathryn smiled.

"Thatís all right, Katie." She said softly. "As you can tell, you didnít wake him."

"Heís missing his party."

"Yes, but he was up early this morning." Kathryn said. "So letís let him nap for a while."

Katie nodded and smiled as she watched her Grandmother lightly trace the tattoo on her grandfatherís forehead.

As Kathryn stood up, Katie noticed the charm her grandmother always wore fall back against her chest. She glanced at her grandfather and saw the exact same charm resting on his chest, where she knew it would be.


"Yes, sweetie?"

"Tell me about the charms you and Gramps have." Katie asked. "Iíve always been curious about them."

Kathryn fingered the half circle hanging on the gold chain around her neck and smiled warmly.

She moved over to the couch and sat down, motioning for Katie to join her. She held out the charm and let her granddaughter look closely at it.

"H. Period. Good for on." Katie read aloud and looked up at her grandmother. "I donít get it?"

Kathryn chuckled and took the charm from Katieís hands and looked at it.

"If you place it against the one your grandfather wears, it reads, "Good for one birthday wish."

"Good for one birthday wish?" Katie repeated and shook her head. "I still donít understand."

"This charm, or rather half a coin, was a birthday present to your grandfather from me fifty years ago." Kathryn said.

"Fifty years ago." Katie said. "Thatís how long you and Gramps have been married."

Kathryn nodded.

"Thatís right. And this little coin was part of the present to your grandfather that finally brought us together."

"Tell me!?" Katie pleaded.

"Are you sure you want to know?" Kathryn asked. "Itís a long story."

Katie nodded.

"Yes. I want to hear it. Mom and Dad never tell me anything. And Iím not a little girl anymore."

Kathryn regarded her granddaughter.

"Youíre right. Youíre twenty-five years old; youíre not a little girl." Kathryn paused and once again fingered the charm, her other hand patting Katieís knee. "Okay. Iíll tell you." Kathryn said and took a breath. Her eyes got brighter as she began to tell her story.

Katie watched with a smile as her grandmother became more animated with each word.

"It was fifty years ago today, on your grandfatherís birthdayÖĒ

=/\= =/\= =/\=

Lost in his own thoughts, Commander Chakotay, who was riding the turbolift to his duty shift on the bridge, didnít feel the lift stop and didnít hear the doors open.

"Well, if it isnít the Birthday Boy!"

A throaty feminine voice broke into his thoughts.

He shook his head slightly and turned to look at the woman standing next to him.

"What?" He said.

She laughed.

"I said itís the birthday boy." She paused and looked at him. "Are you okay, Chakotay? You looked like you were a million miles away."

He shook his head and a big smile broke out on his face.

"Oh. Iím fine." He said. "Just thinking."

She gave him a look.

"Youíre sure youíre okay?"

"Iím fine, Kathryn." He said. "After all, todayís my birthday, and I know for a fact that this year, no one is trying to throw me a surprise party."

She gave him a dirty look.

For the last five years, the crew had been trying to throw him a surprise party, but each year he caught wind of it and always managed to spoil the surprise.

"Donít even mention that." She said in mock indignation.

Chakotay laughed. "Well, I told you and everyone else after your first attempt, that youíd never get me. Itís not my fault that you all keep trying."

"Well, not this year." She said.

"Good." He smiled.

"So, since thereís no party. How about having dinner with me tonight?" She asked. "Holodeck One. Iíve got a new program I want to try."

"Sounds good." He said. "What time?"

"Nineteen hundred hours. You pick me up."

"Itís my birthday." He said. "Shouldnít you be picking me up?"

She shook her head and they laughed.

"Speaking of birthdays." She began. "What would you like for yours?"

"I donít know."

"Oh come on." She urged. "Thereís got to be something."

"No. Not really, Kathryn." He said. "I pretty much have everything I want."

"Youíre not making this easy, Chakotay." She sighed.

He chuckled. "Okay then, if you insist. How about a wish?"

"You want a wish for your birthday?"

He nodded his head.

"A wish?" She said again.

"Yes. Give me a wish. I donít know what I want right now. But that could change in a week." He said. "So, if you give me a wish and when I finally think of something, I can come to you and say, "Remember that birthday wish?""

She smiled and laughed.

"A birthday wish. Hmmm." She said. "You sure you couldnít just use a new shirt?"

"A shirt would be fine too." He chuckled as the lift stopped.

The doors opened onto the bridge and Chakotay gestured for her to exit before him.

She declined. "Age before beauty."

He laughed and exited the lift.

From behind him, Kathryn gave a slight nod of her head to Tuvok and a wink of her eye.

=/\= =/\= =/\=

Later that evening, Chakotay stood outside the Captainís quarters and rang the door buzzer.

"Come in, Chakotay." She called out.

He entered her quarters and looked around.

"Youíre not ready yet?" He called out.

"Not quite." She responded.

"Youíre the one who said seven oíclock, remember?"

"I know. I know." She said. "I had a few things to finish up before my shift ended."

Chakotay just smiled to himself.

"Well, how do I look?" She asked, appearing in the doorway of her bedroom.

"You look beautiful." He said approvingly.

She was wearing a black slip dress that came to just above her knees, with a pair of black high heels. One side of her hair had been pulled back with a shiny black comb and the rest had been curled softly.

"Very beautiful."

"Thank you." She said with a smile.

"Do we have to go to the holodeck?" He asked. "Canít we just eat dinner here?"

"Yes we have to go to the holodeck." She said. "I told you. Iíve got a new program I want to try."

"Not to mention the fact that the crew would be extremely upset if we didnít show up." He said nonchalantly.

"Exactly." She said and then covered her mouth with her hand.

Chakotay laughed. "Gotcha!"

"Whatever do you mean?" She asked, trying to cover.

"Donít even try, Kathryn." He said. "Iíve known for over a week that you and the crew were planning a surprise party."

"Howíd you find out?" She sighed.

"I overheard you and BíEllanna discussing it." He told her. "Donít look so upset. Iíve told you over and over again that youíll never be able to get me."

"One of these days we will." She promised.

"Well youíre welcome to keep trying. I enjoy the challenge."

She shook her head.

"Youíre impossible. And to think, they all worked so hard at keeping it a secret." She said and then moved next to him, putting her hand on his shoulder. "Do me a favour?"


"Try to act surprised this time. Let them think they got you."

"I donít know." He said slowly.

"Please, Chakotay." She asked.

"I donít know." He said again. "If I do, they might think Iím an easy mark."

"An easy mark." She laughed. "Weíve been trying for five years. No one will think that. Besides, it would help boost morale."

"Okay." He said. "Iíll do it."

She gave his shoulder a squeeze.

"Thank you, Chakotay."

"Youíre welcome." He said and then gestured to the door. "Shall we go?"

"Not yet." She said as she walked over to her desk. "Thereís something I want to give you before weíre around the crew."

She walked back over to him and handed him a small black box wrapped only with a green ribbon.

"Happy Birthday, Chakotay." She said.

"Do I open it now?"

"Yes." She nodded.

He slowly untied the bow, gathering the ribbon in his hand. He lifted the lid and removed a white card from on top of the green tissue paper.

"Inside this box are three wishes." He read the card out loud. "Three wishes just for you. Present a wish to me when youíre ready and Iíll make your wish come true." He paused and looked up at her. "Happy Birthday."

She smiled at him and finished for him. "Love Kathryn."

"Three wishes!" He said. "I only asked for one."

"Well, even a genie gives three. So I figured I would too." She said. "And I promise to grant your wish to the best of my abilities."

"Thank you Kathryn." He said, lifting the tissue paper to reveal three gold coins. He smiled as he read the inscription on the coins. "Good for one birthday wish."

"These are wonderful." He said.

"Iím glad you like them." She said.

"I love them. Itís the best birthday present Iíve ever received."

He dumped the coins in his hand and put two of them, along with the card, in his shirt pocket.

He held out the remaining coin.

"A wish already?" She asked.

"Yes." He said. "My first wish is for you to remain after everyone has left to share a dance with me."

"Chakotay, weíre going to share dances together at the party."

"I know." He said. "But Iíd like to share a dance with you without an audience." He gave her a grin. "Itís a wish."

She took the coin from his hand and nodded.

"Youíre wish will be granted." She smiled.

"Thank you." He said and then crooked his arm for her. "Shall we go?"

She slipped her arm through his and nodded.

"Yes, letís go." She replied. "And donít forget...."

"Act surprised. Yes, maíam." He said.

They laughed together as they made their way to the holodeck.

=/\= =/\= =/\=

Chakotay and Kathryn stood off to the side of the door, saying goodnight to the six people responsible for the party.

"So we actually got you, Commander." Neelix said happily.

"Yes, Neelix." Chakotay said. "I donít know how you all did it this year, but you did."

BíElanna stepped forward and gave him a hug.

"Happy Birthday, Chakotay." She said and then turned to Tom. "Letís get going."

"Happy Birthday, Chakotay." Tom said as he and BíElanna left the holodeck.

"Thanks you two." Chakotay said.

"Hope you enjoyed yourself, Commander." Harry said as he left.

"Thanks, Harry. I did."

"Commander." Seven said. "Congratulations on aging another year."

"Thanks Seven." He smiled as he watched her leave, chuckling a little to himself.

Tuvok and the Doctor offered their birthday wishes and left, leaving Chakotay and Kathryn alone in the large holodeck generated hall.

"Well, Birthday Boy." She said. "Did you have a good time?"

"It was a fun evening." He said and called out for the arch. "But I have to admit to being distracted."

He moved to the arch when it appeared and began inputting some commands.

"Distracted? Why?"

"Iíve been waiting all night for the party to end so that my first birthday wish could come true."

She smiled.

"So have I." She thought to herself.

Suddenly the hall disappeared, only to be replaced by an intimate garden setting.

Kathryn looked around. "Oh, Chakotay!" She gasped. "Itís beautiful. Is it anyplace in particular?"

"No." He said, walking over to her. "Just a place Iíve seen in my dreams."

"Dreams, where youíve played a very big part." He thought to himself.

"Well itís lovely."

"Thank you." He replied and then bowed slightly. "May I have this dance my lady?"

She smiled and curtsied lightly. "Iíd be delighted."

He stepped closer to her and pulled her into his arms and began to move.

"ChakotayÖ" Kathryn said with laughter in her voice.

"Hmmm?" He murmured.

"Donít you think some music would help?"

He looked down at her and grinned.

"No. Not really." He deadpanned. "But if you insist. Computer, play music selection, Chakotay Alpha."

In an instant, soft music surrounded them and they resumed dancing.

"Baby, show me what you feel

Come to me, show something real

I need to know, I need you completely"

"Nice song." Kathryn said. "Whereís it from?"

"Ancient Earth." Chakotay answered. "I believe the singerís name is Michael Bolton."

She nodded and then rested her head on his shoulder. As they continued to dance, she listened to the lyrics.

"Closer baby closer, come on letís begin

Love is takiní over, gotta let it in.

Ooh I need to feel the heart of you

Need to reach the very deepest part of you."

Their dancing had slowed and Chakotay clutched their hands to his chest. His other hand moved slowly over her back. She lifted her head off his shoulder to look up at him and their eyes locked.

"Can I touch you there,

touch you deep inside.

Can I touch your heart,

the way youíre touching mine.

Can I touch you there,

touch you deep within

Can I touch you there,

Can I touch you...there."

He let go of her hand and moved his up to his shirt pocket. Her hand covered his.

"Consider it a free one." She whispered, knowing what he was going to ask.

Her other hand snaked up behind his head and pulled his face down to hers.

Their lips came together in a gentle kiss. She felt his lips part and his tongue hesitantly trace hers. She parted her lips and drew his tongue into her mouth.

A low moan sounded deep in his throat, as their kiss grew more passionate. Their tongues moved in and out of each otherís mouths, dancing around and tasting.

Chakotayís arms circled around her waist, drawing her closer against his body as her arms wound about his neck.

After a few minutes, Chakotay broke off the kiss and looked down at her.

"Baby tell me with your eyes

Tell me every secret darliní

Every deep desire, till you and I

Are making love completely."

His hand moved once again to his shirt pocket. He pulled out a coin.

"Kathryn." He said softly. "Iím ready for my second wish."

She looked up at him, her heart pounding in her chest at what she knew he was going to ask.

"I want to make love to you, Kathryn." He said huskily. "I want us to make love to each other. For tonight, tomorrow night, next year, next month and always. I want you, Kathryn."

He held out the coin, waiting for her response. He knew he was taking a big risk, but his heart was telling him to do it.

"Closer baby closer, canít be close enough

I canít help the way I hold you

I just hunger for your love

Ooh and I need to feel the heart of you

Need to reach the very deepest part of you."

She stepped away from him.

"Computer." She called out. "End program."

The garden disappeared.

Chakotay was about to say something but stopped when she reached out and took the coin from his hand.

And then with her free hand, she grabbed his and led him out of the holodeck into the empty corridor.

Not a word was spoken as they rode the lift with their hands still clasped tightly together. When the lift stopped, Kathryn led him to her quarters.

As soon as the cabin doors shut behind them, Kathryn turned to face him and began to unbutton his shirt.

She paused part way down to unfasten his belt and trousers and pulled his shirt free to finish unbuttoning it.

Slowly she ran her hands up his chest, pausing to brush her thumbs over his nipples and was rewarded with a low moan. Her hands continued their journey and pushed his shirt off his shoulders. It slid off him to the floor.

He felt her tap his shoe with her toe and realized she wanted him to remove his shoes, which he quickly did. His socks following.

Kathryn then slipped her hands into the waistband of his pants and eased them down over his hips. They fell to the floor and he stepped out of them, leaving him clad in only a pair of black silk boxers.

She took a step back and admired her First Officerís body. His skin was a deep bronze and he was well muscled. But what caught her attention, was the very large bulge in his shorts.

She reached out a hand and very lightly ran her fingers around the bulge in tiny circles.

Chakotay groaned.

He reached out and grabbed her shoulders, pulling her closer.

He ran his hands down her arms and then up her sides, coming to rest on her breasts.

He leaned forward and she gasped as his mouth covered her nipple through the satin of her dress. He laved his tongue all over it and when it grew hard, he moved on to the other.

As he straightened up, his fingers hooked the straps of her dress and drew them down her arms. The dress slid seductively down her body, revealing little bits of her at a time. Finally, Chakotay let it go and it fell in a puddle on the floor, leaving her clad in a pair of black lace panties and her high heels.

Just like she had done with him, Chakotay stepped back and let his eyes travel over her body. They drank in every inch of her. From her painted toes peeking out from her shoes, to her full round breasts with their hardened nipples, wet with his saliva.

"By the Gods youíre beautiful!" He whispered hoarsely.

Her whole body blushed as she reached her hand out to him.

He clasped it tightly and pulled her to him.

His arms encircled her waist as his mouth came crashing down on hers, ravaging her with his tongue.

Kathryn moaned. Both from the intensity of the kiss and the feel of his chest crushing her breasts. Her arms wound about his neck and she clung to him.

Chakotay slid a hand down her back and when he came to her panties, he tore them off with one pull, throwing them across the room. His hand cupped the firm flesh of her ass and pulled her closer against him.

Her hands left his head and moved directly to his shorts. She pushed them down as far as she could and used the heel of her shoe to bring them the rest of the way down.

Kathryn thrust her hips against him and felt his rigid staff pressing against her belly. She slipped her hand between them and took as much of him as she could in her hand.

Chakotay groaned and instinctively thrust himself against her.

She smiled and began to stroke him, causing him to moan louder.

Chakotay placed his hands on either side of her face and kissed her fiercely. He then stepped away from her.

"Chakotay?" She asked, her throaty voice extremely husky.

Chakotay gave her a lustful grin and dropped to his knees. His hands reached out and grabbed her waist, pulling her closer.

She gasped as he buried his face in the auburn curls at the apex of her thighs. She felt his tongue slip between her folds and circle the pearl of her desire.

"Oh God!" She moaned. "Chakotay!"

Chakotay smiled inwardly and began to suck on the hard core of pleasure, causing her knees to buckle slightly.

"Chakotay! I ... oh ... god! I canít," she panted. "I canít st...."

With his hands still on her waist, he lifted his head and looked up at her. He then pulled her down in front of him.

"Lie down." He commanded softly.

Kathryn nodded and did as he asked, lying on her back before him.

Chakotay clasped her behind the knees and lifted her legs so that they were bent and spread. He then shifted his position and pressed his face between her thighs.

She moaned when she felt his tongue dip into her and then out, moving up to wash over the nub again.

Suddenly, she thrust her hips up to him as he slid a finger into her while still sucking on her.

"CHAKOTAY!!" She cried out and tightened her thighs around his head.

Chakotay continued this pleasurable torture on her until her hands began to claw at his head.

"Oh ... now, Chakotay! I need you now!" She moaned. "I need you inside me now!"

Kathryn tried to pull him up, but he refused to move. Instead, he began to move his finger faster, sliding it in and out of her at a maddening pace, while his lips and tongue increased their pressure on her clit.

Suddenly, Kathrynís body stiffened and then began to convulse wildly as her orgasm ripped through her body.

"OH GOD!" She screamed as the sensations coursed through her body.

Chakotay lifted his head at that moment, leaving his finger inside her and watched her as she rode out her release.

As she slowly came down from the high, she became aware of his finger still moving slowly inside her.

She opened her eyes and watched as he placed kisses on both her thighs and then began to kiss his way up her body.

She couldnít stop the giggle from escaping as he kissed her belly button, tickling her with his tongue.

Chakotay removed his finger from her and braced himself on his hands as he slid his body over hers, pausing to once again pay homage to her breasts.

Kathryn grabbed his face in her hands and pulled his face to hers, capturing his lips with hers.

As they kissed, Chakotay slipped his hand between their bodies and wrapped it around his manhood. He then began to tease her with it, running it up and down her slick folds.

She moaned into his mouth and lifted her hips against him.

"Chakotay." She breathed against his lips. "Now. Please."

He raised his face and gazed at her. He smiled then and pressed a quick kiss to her lips.

He shifted his body slightly and locked his eyes with hers. Slowly he began to press himself inside her, pausing with just the head of his shaft inside her moist heat.

He groaned deep in his throat and closed his eyes. Gritting his teeth, he tried desperately not to lose control and explode inside her right there, like a schoolboy with his first woman.

Kathryn gasped at the feel of him and then groaned as he held himself back. She looked up into his face and smiled at the look of ecstasy combined with fierce concentration.

She brought her hand to his cheek and he opened his eyes, locking once again with hers.

"Donít tease me, Chakotay." She said breathlessly. "I want all of you inside me. Now."

"Iím not doing this to tease you." He said in a strangled voice.

"Let it go, Chakotay." She urged. "We have all night to be together. Just make love to me."

Chakotay dipped his head and kissed her gently. Slowly allowing the kiss to build until it was a blazing fire burning out of control. He broke off the kiss and gazed down at her.

"Fast or slow?" He asked.

"Fast!" She managed to just get out as he drove himself deep inside her.

"CHAKOTAY!" She cried out in a mixture of pain and pleasure. "Oh my God!"

Chakotay held himself still and lowered himself to his elbows, dipping his head to kiss her. He lifted his head and gazed into her eyes, which were filled with tears.

"Did I hurt you?" He rasped.

She shook her head.

"No. Not really." She said softly. "I just didnít realize ... how large you are."

He smiled.

"And itís been a long time." She continued, running her hands up his back. "Give me a minute."

He nodded and moved to nuzzle her neck. His mind raced as he planted little kisses over her throat and shoulders.

"Kathryn! Iím inside Kathryn! Iím making love to Kathryn!" He thought. "Thank you to whatever spirits made this possible!"

As Chakotay lie on top of her, his manhood buried deep inside her like a sword encased in itís sheath, he couldnít get over how tight she was. If he hadnít known about Mark and Justin, he would have sworn she was a virgin.

He could feel her inner muscles flexing around him and thought he would burst then and there. And then he felt her legs slide up along his to wind around his hips.

Chakotay lifted his head and looked down at her. She smiled up at him as she tilted her face up to kiss his chin.

He raised himself up on his hands and began to gently move in and out of her with long, steady strokes.

Kathryn gasped and thrust her hips up to meet him, her legs locking tighter around him, her nails raking across his back.

Her lips parted, but all she could manage to get out were unintelligible moans and sighs as he began to press into her faster.

When Chakotay slipped his hand between them to stroke the hard, aroused flesh of her desire, Kathryn arched against him with a small cry of pleasure.

They moved together in total concert. Their breathing a symphony of gasps and sighs, while their pounding hearts provided the percussion.

Chakotay felt her body begin to tremble as her orgasm neared and started to thrust into her harder and faster, stroking her with the same intensity.

Kathryn bucked against him so hard she almost knocked him off of her. Her hands moved from his shoulders to his ass and back to his shoulders.

"Come with me Kathryn!" He urged, driving himself deeper inside her.

"Oh yes!" She cried. "Oh, Chakotay yes!"

All of a sudden, her body began to shudder and his name burst from her lips as her orgasm tore through her body.

Chakotay felt her convulse around him and yelled out her name as he exploded deep inside her.

He collapsed on top of her and together they soared through the stars on a wave of never-ending sexual bliss, their souls uniting in the haze of nirvana that enveloped them.

=/\= =/\= =/\=

Much later, Kathrynís eyes fluttered open. At first, she was disoriented and then realized she was in her bed.

She looked up when she heard a soft chuckle.

"Whatís so funny?" She asked softly, inching herself closer to him.

"For a moment there, you looked like you didnít know where you were." He said, leaning in to give her a quick kiss.

"I didnít." She replied honestly. "Last thing I remember, we were on the couch. Or was it the coffee table?"

Chakotay grinned.

"I think maybe it was your desk." He paused and scratched his head. "Come to think of it, it could have been the chair."

She swatted him playfully.

"Youíre terrible, Chakotay." She laughed.

"Yes I am. But itís the truth." He said. "The only places we havenít made love are the bed and the bath."

A gleam came to her eyes and before he knew it, he was lying on his back, Kathryn straddling him.

"I think we should remedy that situation." She said, grinding herself into him. "Donít you agree, Commander?"

"Absolutely, Captain." He said, catching her hips in his hands. "I agree one hundred percent."

"I thought you might." She said smiling and then moaned as she felt him grow hard beneath her.

She lifted her hips and slowly lowered herself down on him, both of them moaning at the joining of their bodies.

Chakotay reached up and cupped her cheek in his hand, brushing his thumb over her lips.

Kathryn smiled, gazed down at him and felt her heart swell with love.

She opened her mouth to tell him but instead she moaned as he began to thrust his hips up into her.

Kathryn responded by clenching her inner muscles around his throbbing manhood.

Chakotayís hands slid up her body to cup her breasts. He teased her nipples with his thumbs until they grew almost painfully hard and she moaned, pressing herself into his hands.

All of a sudden, he sat up, leaning in to take one of her breasts in his mouth, his tongue circling the rigid peak.

She grabbed his face in her hands and pulled his lips up to hers for a scorching kiss, their tongues battling for supremacy.

He broke off the kiss and fell back on the bed, his hands once again gripping her hips. He then began to drive himself harder into her.

Kathryn gasped, her hands pressing against his chest as she met him thrust for thrust, her inner muscles clenching and releasing in perfect time with their movements.

Chakotay felt her body begin to quiver and moved his hands to the spot where their bodies were joined and began to stroke her in tandem with their thrusts.

Her head fell back and she panted for breath as the sensations began shooting though her body, one right after another until she couldnít take it any longer.

"CHA-KO-TAY!!" She cried out as her orgasm consumed her and she began to thrash wildly on top of him, crying his name over and over.

Chakotay thrust into her a few more times before being pulled over the edge of ecstasy, calling her name.

Kathryn dropped to his chest, her body still trembling from the force of her release and kissed him passionately, willing him to feel her love for him.

Chakotayís arms snaked across her back and held her to him as he returned her kiss with equal passion.

Slowly they broke off the kiss and Kathryn lifted her head to gaze dreamily into his eyes.

"That was wonderful." She said softly.

"It was that." He agreed.

She stretched her legs out, carefully, so as not to dislodge him from inside her, as she wanted to keep the expressly intimate contact.

She rested her chin on her one hand on his chest as she absently traced his tattoo with her finger.

They talked amicably about different things as they continued to touch and stroke each other, enjoying the new intimacy between them.

A while later, Chakotay groaned as he felt Kathrynís inner muscles beginning to tighten around his flaccid member, coaxing new life into him.

Kathryn moaned as she felt his manhood grow hard and begin to throb within her. She looked down at him and smiled.

"Bathtub!" They said together and dissolved into giggles.

Chakotay inched his way to the edge of the bed and sat them up as Kathryn wrapped her legs around him, locking them behind his back.

He cradled her bottom in his hands and stood.

"The big question?" He said, walking slowly towards the bathroom.


"Do we make love in the bath or shower?"

Kathryn threw her head back and laughed.

=/\= =/\= =/\=

Kathryn rolled over in her sleep, her back coming into contact with a solid wall of warm flesh. She sighed happily when she felt an arm slide around her waist, coming to rest on her stomach, pulling her deeper into his warmth.

She turned her head and looked into the smiling eyes of her First Officer, best friend turned lover and felt a rush of emotions.

"Good morning." She said softly, pressing a kiss to his lips.

"Good afternoon you mean." He said smiling.

She turned in his embrace, entwining her legs with his.

"Afternoon? What time is it?" She asked.

"Just after noon." He answered, running his hand over her hip. "Itís a good thing you scheduled us off today."

"Yes. That was rather good thinking on my part." She smiled, her hand sliding over his chest.

"It was also a clue you know."

"A clue?"

"To my surprise party."

She swatted his arm and smiled at him.

"Thank you for letting the crew believe they got you."

"Donít you know by now that thereís nothing I wouldnít do for you, Kathryn?" He said earnestly.

She looked deep in his eyes and nodded.

"Yes. I know." She said softly, bringing her hand up to caress his cheek.

They gazed into each otherís eyes, not speaking for what seemed an eternity.

"I love you." She whispered, her voice heavy with emotion. "I love you so much, Chakotay."

"I love you too, Kathryn." He said, his eyes glassy with unshed tears. "I feel as if Iíve been waiting my entire life for you."

A tear rolled down her cheek and he brushed it away as she did to the tears escaping his eyes.

Suddenly, they both laughed and Chakotay pulled her tight against him, enveloping her in his embrace, both of them sighing happily.

Chakotay dipped his head, capturing her lips in a gentle kiss. She could feel the passion simmering just beneath the surface and it caused her heart to pound and left her breathless when he ended the kiss.

They smiled at each other again and then Chakotay shifted his body so that he was sitting, his back against the pillows and pulled her into his lap.

"You know." She said, running her finger down his chest. "You still have one wish left."

He grinned.

"I know." He said. "But I think Iím gonna save it." He slid his hands over her thighs. "I donít know if itís just because this is all so overwhelming and Iím just being emotional. Just please tell me this isnít a one time thing."

She smiled slyly at him. "Wasnít your second wish for us to make love, last night, tonight, next year." Her smile grew. "Next month and always?"

"Yes. I believe thatís how I worded it."

"Oh, Chakotay." She laughed softly, taking his face in her hands. "I wouldnít have made love to you if I hadnít truly wanted to. Whether you made that wish or not."

"So that means..."

"This isnít a one time thing." She finished and snuggled tightly against him. "Part of the reason I held you at bay for so long was because I knew. I knew that if we ever made love, it could never be just once."

Chakotayís arms tightened around her.

"I have waited so long for this, that Iím afraid to let you go." He said, his voice husky with emotion.

She wrapped her arms around his back.

"Youíll never ever have to." She said. "You can hold me for the rest of our lives."

"I plan to." He said, leaning in for a kiss. "I plan to."

Their lips came together again, this time in a promise for a life together.

Kathryn looked at her granddaughter and smiled.

"That is so romantic." Katie said, tears in her eyes. "I never knew Grampa was such a romantic."

"Oh he is." Kathryn said, looking over at her, still, sleeping husbandís form and smiling even more.

She hadnít told Katie all the details, but enough to satisfy her curiosity.

"So, when did Gramps give you the charm? And did you know he had kept it all those years?"

"Chakotay gave it to me on our tenth anniversary." Kathryn answered. "And yes, I had an inkling that he still had it."

Just then a head popped into the living room, followed by the rest of its ownerís body.

"Come on back out, Katie!" He said. "Youíre missing all the fun. Uncle Kolopeck is juggling water balloons."

"Hello, Alexander." Kathryn said to her, obviously excited grandson.

"Oh! Hi, Gram!" He said. "Great party! Come on, Katie!"

"Iíll be right there." Katie said and chuckled as she watched her younger brother take off back outside. She turned back to Kathryn. "Thank you for telling the story, Gram. It was beautiful."

Kathryn hugged Katie to her.

"Oh youíre welcome sweetie. Thank you for listening."

Katie smiled and stood up.

"Well I better get out there before Alex bursts back in here and wakes Gramps."

Kathryn watched with a smile as Katie disappeared into the kitchen.

"Sheís right, you know."

Kathryn turned at the sound of Chakotayís voice.

"About what?"

Chakotay eased the chair out of its reclining position and held his hand out to her.

"It is a beautiful and romantic story." He said, pulling her into his lap as she took his hand. "And itís far from over."

"Were you awake the whole time?" Kathryn asked, her hand straying to his tattoo, as it often did.

He nodded.

"I woke up when I felt you run your fingers through my hair." He said and a twinkle came to his eyes. "I was going to pull you down to join me, but our granddaughter came in."

Kathryn laughed.

"Chakotay, youíre terrible." She said, leaning in and giving him a quick kiss.

"What?! Canít a husband enjoy a little afternoon delight with his wife?"

"At our age!?" She said with humored sarcasm. "What would our children think?"

"Theyíll be thinking, "Great! If theyíre still making love in their eighties, then we will be too."" He drew her closer. "Besides, itís the late twenty-fourth century. Anythingís possible."

Kathryn smiled adoringly at him.

"How could I have been so lucky?" She thought. "Iíve been married to the man of my dreams for fifty years. We have four beautiful children and six adorable grandchildren."

"What are you thinking my love?" He asked, breaking into her thoughts.

"About how lucky I am." She answered as she wrapped her arms around his neck. "That and how I seem to love you more with each passing day."

"I love you so, my Kathryn." He said. "Every day with you has been a wish come true."

"I love you too, Chakotay." She whispered. "Happy Birthday, my love."

"Happy birthday indeed." He said as he pulled her lips down to his for a passionate kiss.

Katie watched them from the doorway with a smile on her face.

Sheíd come back in to ask Kathryn something, but stopped when she saw her Grandfather pull her into his lap.

"Happy Birthday, Gramps." She whispered as she turned and left.

Leaving the two of them alone to carry out yet another birthday wish.
