For the ADULT Part 18 go here
As far as the outside world were
concerned Adam spent the next three days getting to grips with
a sword Duncan had given him, and talking to all the members of
the Dividing. There were several exhibitions of the `new' Immortal's
untrained prowess with the weapon, for the benefit of the Watchers,
as well as some fairly unsubtle hints about Madi's interest in
him. When they weren't showing their shadows what they wanted
seen, the group were congratulating themselves and revelling in
the new openness they could show around Methos.
When Madi took Adam aside when
she, Duncan and he, were practising in the woods, and proceeded
to passionately kiss him for several minutes, his Watcher was
not particularly surprised. The man wrote it down in his note
book with a small smile on his face. It was now time for the final
stage of the operation.
That evening, Methos climbed
into Madelaine's car instead of his own and the drove to her apartment.
For full view of the cameras, when they climbed out of the vehicle
she took him by the hand and led him to the entrance. When the
curtains closed the Watcher below decided he knew exactly what
was going on.
"Alone at last," Adam
said as they shut out the outside world, "com'ere."
He pulled Madi into his arms
as if his life depended on her and his fingers entwined in her
hair. It had seemed like they were apart for such a long time,
even though it had only been days. Their bodies pressed against
each other with very real passion and the kiss was far more desperate
than the one they had so carefully staged for the world. The blonde
woman's nails clawed at her lover's clothes and he moaned at the
sensation. This was going to be an entertaining evening.
When they'd finally had enough
of exploring each other bodies they decided it was time to make
sure the Watcher in the parking lot below was sure that Adam had
become part of the Dividing. A small display of exchanging Quickenings
next to the closed curtains meant that the poor man actually got
to see something. The blue flashed were duly noted and it was
at that point that the cold, tired individual decided to go home.
Now holding Madi close and pushing
part of his own Quickening at her was a most exhilarating experience
as far as Methos was concerned, but it had one draw back. Both
of them looked at each other and found a renewed eagerness to
find out exactly what made the other go `ahhh', but unfortunately
neither had the energy to follow through.
"I hope they appreciate
what we've done for their benefit," Methos said lightly as
he watched the car drive away. "I have these wild urges,
but I think I'll be asleep before my head hits the pillow."
"Well there's always tomorrow
morning, darling," Madi said with a smile, and the pair half
carried each other back to the bed.
For once Adam's prediction was
completely accurate. He was asleep in seconds and his lover just
brushed a stray hair out of his face and kissed him good night.
