She kept her eyes down, and when Casey stood up, she wondered if he was going to bolt, make his way out the door and be done with it. They'd said everything that needed to be said, and Fierro was gone, leaving only the two of them in the commons with silence a space between them that felt like a gaping hole of stress and sadness. Kara wondered how things worked with other couples, other people romantically linked in the arena of politics and whatnot. It was just the beginning, a tornado that struck out of nowhere. To her surprise, Casey had walked around the back of her seat, the feel of his kiss at he top of her head sent a shiver down her back. Then he started in on her shoulders. She closed her eyes, letting her arms relax at her sides and she tilted her head down. Kara let out a breath, a combination of feeling relieved and comforted by his touch.

After a long, stressful night, she needed this: The contact. Professional things needed to be set aside sometimes, not to mention the drama that surrounded her relationship with Casey was rather overwhelming sometimes, and she just needed alone time where she could unwind without having to be proper. Instead of being so cold and withdrawn or having to stifle personal opinion by biting her tongue could be set at ease by holding someone's hand or even stealing a kiss. She moved her right hand up and gently placed it over his. She curled her fingers under his hand and turned her head for a moment to kiss the top of his palm, and then set it back down again if he chose to continue the very-much-needed massage. At the very least this was to acknowledge him, and silently express that she was grateful to be around him at all, and grateful they were finally alone.

"I finally get my father back, and that was the price." Dealing with Bryden, she meant. It was a hefty price to pay too, Kara knew, considering that by allowing their admittance into the safe house set everyone to "Red Alert". What was she supposed to do? Turn away the wolves, turn away the deal and get her father killed? Damn, she really didn't want to talk about any of that after Fierro left the room, but it was like the final thought on that she wanted to have, for now. "Sorry, I won't keep beating a dead horse, or however they say--I just..." She ran her fingers through her hair again and sat back, looking up at Casey with a shrug. "Anyway. What's the next step? What are your plans from here, love?" She asked in a broad manner, wondering if he'd take off again for business, mostly to gauge if she had any time left with him before he was gone again.

Kara hummed softly as he worked through her tense muscles with his fingers. She rolled her neck from one side to the other to help her shoulders relax, and when he was finished she smiled and whispered, "Thanks." She scooted over some to give him a bit of room to sit, but made sure to scoot in a bit closer when he sat beside her. Of course, she'd move away if he didn't want to be too close, unsure of whether or not they were still trying to keep professional appearances or not, even though there wasn't anyone else in the room. It was such a tiring game, the realm of politics, and she was fast learning that she didn't much like that part of it. He was her, for lack of a better term, boyfriend, and everyone knew it. Why hold back that closeness, the innocent affection of sitting beside each other, holding each others hands or anything like that, when it was nothing more than moral support for one another?

Kara let out a deep sigh and listened to him speak. He was showing his support now, and that's what mattered, reinforcing his faith with the words she needed to hear. She even huffed softly when he mentioned it'd be 'rocky'. Damn right it would be, and this debate, this display of unease over the acceptance of Bryden for the sake of keeping Fierro alive was already shaking that faith. She nodded along quietly as he explained his plan, understanding each step of what he was aiming to do, going forward. Kara saw it as a long, outstretched path in front of her. It was at a steep incline, it seemed, and as he said, it would be rocky along the way.

When Casey shifted the conversation, however, she was a bit floored. Kara sat up and looked at him with slightly raised brows. He wanted to talk about them? It probably wasn't, but it seemed as if it was the first time Casey brought them up like that. Usually it was her asking the questions, trying to sort out the 'whys' and 'whens' and 'what ifs', but here he was, laying this out for her, with honesty and hope in his tone. She relaxed and smiled at him, nodding slowly. "Yeah, you're right." She said, agreeing with him wholeheartedly. It was going to be strange going from seeing him every so often; business trips, meetings, out-of-area dealings were now replaced by a live-in companion who was going to be working with her, side-by-side. Even when she was married to Liam, they still had some separate dealings, like the Abbey and what not, but this was going to be somewhat foreign territory. "I think we're grown up enough not to let you being here get in the way of professional dealings, yeah?" She chuckled, "All seriousness though, you're really going through with this then? You're really moving here?" She sounded so hopeful, stars in her eyes. This is what she'd wanted all along, to have him close, and now it was really happening.

She had missed him so much... The real him. The kinder eyes that weren't steeled and set to 'work mode', matched with a tensed jawline and a hardened expression. Kara missed the gentler side of him, the one that was peeking out now. Her smile brightened further when he mentioned moving in. Even though it wasn't the same as him moving in to her room or her flat, having Casey reside somewhere closer than miles over the city was exciting for her. "Training. Ah, yes. I think to prevent myself from going mad I'll have to get out and get my hands dirty or you'll come home and find me buried under paperwork or something." She laughed. The administrative side of leadership was something she was going to have to get used to dealing with, but Kara was so happy to have Jaleth back in good health to help her sift through that nonsense.

"Communicate." She echoed with a bit of a smirk, playfully poking him in the chest. That had been one of the worst parts of their relationship early on; a clash of personal and professional missteps caused them to lose their spark. They were younger then, even if it was only a couple of years ago when everything started, but it felt like more. "Yeah, we are." She agreed. Kara had been a lone-runner for so long, before and even during her run with Damien and the Order she'd been introduced to, but now that she was in a different place, mentally, physically, politically... certain qualities were required to keep all of the efforts from collapsing in on themselves. Communication was one of them.

"I thought you hated me for making that call..." was what she wanted to say, but Kara refrained. She didn't want to bring it back up, dive back into the professional discussion when they were clearly trying to move past that. If it came up again, her decision to bring the wolves into the fold, Kara would mention it. Right now she was perfectly fine just being held by him, discussing things that were far more pleasant than the stressful day before. Kara returned the kiss and smiled at him, her sea-green eyes just beaming in sheer bliss. Kara tucked her leg under her on the couch and scooted in closer to him when he invited her over. The closeness, as rare as he'd been able to experience it as of late, was so welcome. Soothing to her nerves, calming to the anxious wreck she'd been for the last twenty-four hours since Bryden arrived with her father. He always smelled so nice, and it made her smile as she cuddled with him.
