Sometimes Nathaniel really hates his brother, wants to punch him, just to shut him up for good, to stop making Wash blush a beautiful shade of red as Miles runs his fingers along the three scars at the right side of his head and, with a smirk on his lips, calls them Wash’s Mark since it had been her who stitched him up.
Jim isn’t one for art, never has been, but the way the early sunlight falls across their bodies, paints them in different shades of gold, the Commander’s hand cupping Wash’s neck in a distinctively possessive manner as he kisses her, a flash of tongue and teeth, the Colonel’s arm slung low over her waist, moving in a steady rhythm while his mouth trails along shoulder, makes Jim wonder if he hasn’t been missing something out.
Here, Zoe, have a little ‘cookie’ for your muse. xD
Colonel Miles Taylor, leader of the Phoenix Group, is the brother of Commander Nathaniel Taylor.
He followed his nephew’s orders until Lucas tried to kill Wash. With the help of Carter, a trained medic, Miles managed to save her life and when the Phoenix Group and Mira moved towards the Badlands, they (and almost a dozen Sixers) cut their ties and moved back to Terra Nova.
Upon arriving at the colony, Miles and Nathaniel met for the first time in over a decade face to face and while there is still bad blood between them, they put aside their differences for the time being to help the one woman they both have feelings for recover from her ordeal.
Wash doesn’t know what to think or do.
On one hand there is Nathaniel, who saved her life back in 2138 and gave her a second chance in Terra Nova. Over the years they’ve grown closer but never crossed that line until he almost lost her to his son. Since she’s been back he started to behave differently and it confuses the hell out of Wash.
Then there is Miles, the complete opposite of his brother, dark, a trained killer, but when it comes to Wash, he has shown a side no on expected of him. For her, he turned his back on his fellow men and brought her home, even if it meant to return her to his brother. His behaviour throws Wash off balance as much as his brother’s.
It’s quite frustrating and Wash, who never had the pleasure of being the center of a romance novel gone bad, is at a loss for the very first time.
One woman. Two brothers. Threefold trouble.
My mind is a super-scary place to be. It has a mind of its own… I don’t know if it’s ever going to turn into a full-fledged story but if anyone’s muse feels inspired, go ahead.
