    Summary

    The most they’d managed to accomplish during their entire grocery jaunt had been hand brushes and ear nips — and, on one memorable occasion, a butt pinch that turned both parties into stammering, red-faced messes all the way from the cheeses to the seafood — but it was very clear what they meant to be doing, if only they ever got around to it.

    Ciara didn’t like to concern herself with the affairs of strangers (barely even concerned herself with the affairs of acquaintances, but she was working on that), and she very much would have liked to not know these details about the couple holding up the queue, but seeing as she’d spent half her trip trapped behind them in the produce aisle, the dairy aisle, the uni-student-on-a-budget aisle, and even the stationary aisle, she came to the dreadful conclusion that there would be no way forward but through.

    Summary

    It is just a peach. He’s eaten plenty of peaches before. There is no reason why this one should be any different. He can have it if he wants it. However—he’s perfectly aware he’s being tempted, and that’s why he should say no. He should control himself.
    Crowley brings the peach to his own mouth, and Aziraphale watches him, transfixed, lips parted and breath itching in his throat. The demon locks eyes with him as he takes a bite, the sound wet and sweet and obscene.
    ~~~
    Aziraphale asks Crowley to use his demonic powers to tempt him. It's very effective.

    Summary

    “Actually, the fact that it’s forbidden is a point in its favour. I intend to make the absolute most of my newfound freedom.” Aziraphale blinks, and Crowley could swear he saw something wicked surface and disappear in those pale blue eyes of his. “Dearest, you can close your mouth now. You look quite like a fish out of water.”
    Crowley does close his mouth. “I—you—I just—I was not expecting you to agree so quickly.”
    Aziraphale steps closer to him, putting a hand on his cheek. “Why would I ever deny you something you want?” Crowley decides to be gracious and not point out Aziraphale has a long history of doing exactly that. But that was before. This is now.
    ~~~
    Crowley asks Aziraphale to use his angelic powers on him in bed.
    Of course, because this is Crowley, he does not realize he’s in way over his head until it’s too late.

    Summary

    A half-step is all it takes to get Aziraphale close enough to murmur into Crowley’s ear, “Put the light out when you go to bed, and I’ll come to you.”

    Summary

    Desire flared within him, a corporeal thing. At any other time, he would have turned it off: A figurative tap on the shoulder and whisper in the ear to remind himself that no, be quiet, this isn't for you. He will never be for you. And even then he'd be left with a dull, persistent ache from his stubborn body, still wanting to make the effort — always for Aziraphale.
