Asher let out a deep breath, "Because I care about you Shelby," He told her, "When you called me when you got eviected I couldn't let you go home then and I'm not going to let you go home now."
--
"I like that idea," Cara said as she tossed back the rest of her drink.

"Why do you care so much?" Shelby asked him, wanting an honest answer.
-
Lucio finished his drink and left the glass on the table.

Asher ran a hand through his hair, "Because I like you Shelby, our predicament has brought us closer together and I have really fallen for you." He told her honestly.
--
Cara followed him out of the bar to the escalator and grabbed his hand to hold.

Shelby looked at him, feeling the same way. "Why didn't you tell me before?"
--
Lucio held her hand as they got to the elevator and he hit the button for the top floor.

"I don't know, nerves I guess," He shrugged, "I never knew the right time to tell you. But now that you want to leave I felt that it was now or never."?
--
"Are you upset," Care asked him softly as she placed her chin on his shoulder to look up at him.

"I...I feel the same." Shelby said softly. She couldn't believe he felt it too.
--
"No." Lucio lied and looked down at her. "Don't do the puppy eyes."

"What?" Asher said as he turned his head, he didn't think that she'd feel the same way.
--
"I'm not giving you any eyes," Cara told him with a smirk.

"I thought I had a stupid crush." Shelby laughed.
--
"You're doing the puppy eyes." Lucio pointed out.

"It wasn't a stupid crush," Asher told her before leaning in and kissing her softly.
--
"They're not purposeful," Cara told him before standing up straight beside him.

Shelby kissed him back and rested her hand on his cheek.
-
"Thats a lie." Lucio laughed as they got to their floor.

Asher smiled against her lips as he continued to kiss him.
--
"Hey," Cara said as she pulled his hand back to her, "I know you're upset." She told him.

Shelby laid down and pulled him with her without breaking the kiss.
-
"I'm not upset." Lucio told her. "Concerned is all."

Asher continued to kiss her, running a hand through her hair.
--
Cara closed their door behind them as they got inside, "Well talk to me please."?

Shelby breathed heavier and tugged at his shirt.
--
"I don't understand why you don't want to get married." Lucio told her.

Asher kissed her once more before pulling away, "Wait, we can't go that far,' He told her.
--
"Maybe someday," Cara shrugged, "But if I did want to get married now, I wouldn't want to be proposed to like that."

"Why not?" Shelby asked, afraid he didn't like her enough.
-
"I don't want to do a big proposal." Lucio told her. "You know thats not me."

"I respect you more than that," He told her, "It already happened once and you don't even get to remember it, I think you need to be 100% ready before it happens again."
--
"And you know that I don't need an elaborate one," Cara pointed out, "But don't you think I deserve more than just a randomly brought up question at a bar?"

"I am ready." Shelby said, wanting to take her mind off of everything else.
-
"You deserve the world." Lucio said honestly.

"No you're not," Asher said, "And even if you were, I want it to be special for you," He told her.
--
"I appreciate you saying that," Cara told him.

"I'm sorry..I got ahead of myself." Shelby said, feeling embarressed.
--
"Its true." Lucio said and loosened his tie. "What do you want for dinner?"

"It's okay, I just don't want you to regret a thing," Asher told her, he leaned forward and kissed her forehead softly.
--
"Let's just order room service," Cara said as she stepped forward and wrapped her arms around him, "I love you babe, I don't want you to be upset or concerned over me," She told him.

"I don't think I'll regret it with you." Shelby assured him.
--
"I'm fine." Lucio assured her. "Stop worrying."

"I just want it to be special," Asher told her, "I really like you Shelby."?
--
Cara nodded, knowing that wasn't the case but she let it go, "I'm going to go take a bath, let me know when dinner is here," She told him.

"I like you too." Shelby smiled at him.
--
"I will." Lucio said and kissed her cheek.

"Then do you want to give us a shot?" Asher asked, "Maybe you could stick around?"
--
Cara headed to the bedroom to take a bubble bath.

"Okay." Shelby smiled at him.
--
Lucio ordered the food and waited for it to arrive.

"Okay, that's it? That's how easy it was?" Asher teased her with a grin.
--
Cara relaxed in the bubble bath, she hadn't felt this uneasy after a disagreement with Lucio in awhile.

"I just needed a good reason to stay." Shelby smiled.
--
Lucio went to the bathroom and knocked quick before letting himself in. "Hey. Food will be up soon."

"Well I'm glad you decided to do that," Asher said with a smile before leaning into kiss her softly.
--
Cara smiled with a nod, "What did you order?" She asked him.

Shelby kissed him back and smiled against his lips.
--
"The usual." Lucio said and sat at the edge of the tub.

Asher kissed her for a moment longer before pulling away, "Can I help you unpack?" He smirked.
--
"Thank you," Cara said with a smile as she moved her hands along the bubbles in the tub.

"Yeah, that would be great." Shelby smiled.
--
"You used too many bubbles." Lucio smirked at her.

Asher chuckled, "Okay, just tell me what goes where," He told her.
--
"I don't think so," Cara smirked back.

"The clothes go in the closet and...thats all I have." Shelby laughed.
-
"I can hardly see you under there." Lucio pointed out.

"You didn't put anything in drawers?" Asher asked as he hung some things back up for her.
--
"I think that's the point of the bubbles," Cara chuckled.
