Manhattan, New York (Open)

Harry wasn’t entirely sure how to feel about his Father anymore really, he had done so much wrong and caused both the company and the family so much trouble. It was hard to forgive and it was partly why he didn’t blame others for hating his Father but on the other hand despite the hatred he sometimes felt for their much less than perfect relationship the man was still his Father, his only family, and he was gone and that definately hurt.

He just had yet to actually express to anyone that it did hurt. An almost stranger was better than people he knew.

"Well there has always got to be some hope." He sighed. "For instance, I do hope I haven’t contracted this disease, I saw how it…What it did."

He blinked a little surprised as Hank glanced to his watch and then said he could remain for a while longer. “I…Thank you for that, that is very generous of you Doctor, but I really should not waste more time of your day.”

Hank gave Harry a genuine smile.  He was just a boy thrown into adulthood too early for his own sake, and there was a slight sense of loss around him.  Coming from having lost his father, of course, but also from something else.  Hank wasn’t sure what, but he’d seen teens walking through the doors of the Academy with that same expression on their faces.  

"I hope so too."  From what he remembered of the disease, he wouldn’t wish that to anyone.  He shook his head.  "You’re not wasting my time, don’t worry about it.  But I’ll leave you to your business."  

He took a few steps back from Harry and smiled softly.  ”But remember.  If you ever need help, drop me a line.  I’ll see what I can do.”

Jan moaned softly and tilted her head to give him better access. “Not necessarily… I just think we’ll be a lot more comfortable on the bed than the couch.” She said, chuckling. 

"Oh… you don’t think I can divert that energy elsewhere?" She asked, grinning. She moaned lightly as he buried his face in her neck and chuckled. "No kidding. She looked over her shoulder and, sure enough, the two little ants were still watching them. "Should I threaten them with using a magnifying glass? Just to make sure they don’t follow us?"

Hank closed his eyes for a moment, inhaling her delicate perfume.  ”You make a good point.  We’d definitely be more comfortable than here…”

He lifted his face up to hers and barely brushed his lips against hers.  ”If anyone can divert that energy, it’s you… that much is for sure…”  

He turned his gaze in the direction where the two little ants stood and chuckled again.  ”I don’t think that will be necessary.  I already told them once not to venture into other parts of the apartment, just to be on the safe side.  I wouldn’t want to squish them inadvertently after all.”

He flashed a stern look at the two ants and waved his finger at them in as though to scold them.  ”And that implies the bedroom, guys.”  He chuckled and turned back to Jan.  ”I don’t know why I’m doing this, they can’t understand me.”

He smiled at her and rubbed her thigh gently.  ”But don’t worry, they won’t come over.”

Jan giggled and grinned. “Because you never suspect anything from me.” She said, smiling.

Jan laughed. “I guess so. They are quite the curious couple.” She moaned softly as he began kissing her neck and tilted her head to give him better access. “Mmm~ Hank…” She moaned as she let her fingers run through his hair. She shifted a little so that she could sit on his lap and smiled. “Maybe we should head back to the room. After all, that’s where we’ll end up anyway…”

Hank chuckled against Jan’s neck.  ”You’re right about that…  maybe I shouldn’t take everything so seriously.”  

He continued to slowly kiss her neck, tasting her tender skin.  ”So you’re ready to turn in for the night?”  He smiled again.  ”I have to warn you I suspect all my energy will be channeled to digest what I just ate…” 

He wrapped his arms around her waist as she went to sit on his lap, and traced his lips up long her jawline before nuzzling her cheek.  ”But yes, I believe that’s where we’ll end up… and I have to admit I’ll feel better not having those two peeping toms spying on us.”  He chuckled before burying his face in the crook of her neck once more.

"I know… but  like teasing you." She said, grinning. She could listen to him talk all day. His voice was normally very sexy on its own, but with confidence added to it, that just made it sexier.

She chuckled at his referring to the ants as kids. “Eh… if they want to be traumatized by watching mommy and daddy making out on the couch, let ‘em. They’ll probably get bored and try finding some other food to get into… little pigs…” She moaned as Hank kissed her and smiled, letting her hands tangle in his hair.

"I know you do…  and somehow I still always fall for it!"  Hank chuckled again.  He knew he sometimes had a tendency to take things at the first degree, which might make him come off as a bit naive, but he didn’t think it was that bad.  Anyway he didn’t mind the teasing Jan was doing.  It was pretty harmless after all.  Really, anything to see that beautiful smile on her face.

He looked over at the little ants for a moment.  ”I think they’d be more puzzled than traumatized…  I don’t think they’ve figured out yet what all this is about.”  He turned his attention back to Jan and smiled.  ”But I’m not really worried for them.  As I said, I have much more interesting things to do…”  He gently brushed her hair back and smiled again.  ”…  like spending time with my amazingly gorgeous and sexy wife…”  He pulled her closer to him and buried his face in the crook of her neck, planting small kisses to her throat.

Jan grinned at that. “Well… that’s a first…” She said, nuzzling his cheek. “I like the way your mind is now working.” She said, chuckling. 

She stayed quite as he began talking about the ants. She loved hearing him talk like that… it was so interesting and sexy. He was so confident and self assured. It was a very big turn on.

She grinned. “Yes. I imagine she would…” She giggled as he realized he was talking about ants. “Don’t worry. That confidence in your voice is very much a turn on…” She said, leaning forward to kiss him. Deciding to let the ants be traumatized by seeing her and Hank making out.

"I didn’t spend all my time chatting with ants back in the days, you know…  I was also doing some active work."  Hank chuckled and winked at Jan.  "There’s not that much that happens in an ant’s life anyway, so there’s not much chatting to do."

He was a bit surprised that Jan paid attention to what he was saying, and didn’t seem to find it boring.  He wasn’t really aware of the actual effect it had on her, but he just loved that look of focused interest on her.  Not that there was anything wrong with how she usually looked…  perhaps it was because of the way she was looking at him…  or simply because of the way she looked, period.

He kissed her back, happy to see that the confidence he had worked up building through the years was showing up somewhere and that Jan appreciated it.  He pulled her closer as she leaned forward and cupped her face in his hands as he prolonged the kiss.  Before he allowed himself to get too caught up in the moment, he pulled back and smiled at Jan.  ”Are you sure…?  I mean, in front of the ‘kids’…?”  He chuckled again and recaptured her lips a bit more eagerly.

"Really? Wow…" She said, smiling. "Well, yes. But considering I’m already pregnant and you’re still alive I think that might be what’s confusing them most." She said, giggling and cuddling close.

She blinked a little as he explained more. “So the Queen basically raises all the workers by herself until they’re old enough to take over? Poor thing…” She said. “But I guess it’s their nature… I’m glad Queenie decided to not do that so soon…” She looked at the ants who had perked up a bit. “Oh no. You two aren’t getting anywhere near Queenie so get those thoughts out of your head! She’s much too regal for you.”

She giggled and looked at him. “Not really… but weren’t we just talking about how I liked it when you talked about things that you were interested in?”

"Hm.  Maybe.  I hadn’t thought of that.  I think I’ll have to ask them eventually.  But really not tonight.  I have better things to do than hang out with a bunch of ants."  Hank chuckled again and leaned forward to nuzzle Jan’s cheek.  

"Yes, she does, but just when she starts the colony.  After that, she has worker ants who raise the next generation, and so forth.  And she doesn’t need any male after having mated once.  She stores the male reproductive cells in an internal pouch near the tip of her abdomen, and releases them to fertilize the eggs.  Unfertilized eggs produce males while fertilized ones produce wingless worker ants, which are female."

He laughed lightly at Jan’s comment.  They had adopted the little female ant, or rather she had adopted them since she had followed them home last year.  Surprisingly she didn’t exhibit any desire to mate and form a colony of her own.  ”I think Queenie would find them too immature anyway.”  He chuckled again. 

He shook his head.  ”Oh god… there I am, babbling about ants…  you should stop me, you know.  I’m sure there are things a lot more interesting to you that I could say…  like how beautiful you are…”  He pressed a soft kiss to the side of her neck.  ”… or how much I’m looking forward to spending more time with you.”

Jan giggled as Hank took the pizzas away. She could imagine the two ants pouting if they had human faces. She smiled as Hank came back and laughed. “They’re probably trying to figure out if we’re trying to wrestle or eat each other.” She said, before looking over at the two. “Seriously. I gave you two a cookie earlier. You should be full and shouldn’t want anymore.”

She looked back at Hank. “Unless you want to grab your translator thingy and explain to them the human mating ritual.” She said, grinning. “I’m sure they’d be horrified. Considering I’m fairly sure they don’t reproduce the same way we do. Doesn’t the Queen do all the work?”

Hank couldn’t hold back a laugh.  ”Probably.  They must think we’re pretty crazy and wondering what purpose all this serves.”  He chuckled again while the two little ants looked at them, apparently puzzled by all this.  

"Eh, no…  I’m not really in the mood to scare them off right now.  Because in ant reproduction, the male actually dies after having mated with the future queen ant.  I wouldn’t want them to think I’m going to die.  Explaining everything to them would take time.  Not to mention patience."  

He sat crossed-legged on the couch and pulled Jan closer.  ”Actually the queen doesn’t do much besides laying eggs and fertilizing them.  Once she has produced a generation of worker ants, they do all the work, cleaning up, getting food and building up the colony.”

He held his breath for a few seconds as he looked over at Jan, then chuckled.  ”But I’m pretty sure you’re not really interested in all that right now.”  He was actually glad to see that Jan was making an effort to show interest in what interested him.

Jan smiled into the kiss and giggled. “But I like giving you compliments… I never did it enough…” She mumbled against his lips. She moaned lightly and shifted so that she could get closer to him. And continued running her hand through his hair and kissing him.

She pulled back a little and grinned. “Someone is getting a little eager… not that I’m complaining…” She said, grinning. “But we still have an audience… and I think our little squatters are trying to help themselves to what’s left of our pizza…” She had caught movement out of the corner of her eye and the only thing that would move would be Dave and Matthew…

Hank chuckled through the kiss.  ”I’m just not used to that… but it’s nice to hear…”  He wasn’t as vain as to absolutely need to receive compliments, but it was still nice to be appreciated.  

He pulled back from the kiss, slightly short of breath.  He hadn’t noticed he had got a bit carried away, and chuckled as Jan commented on it.  He turned his head as he followed her gaze, only to see the two little ants walking subtly in the direction of the pizza crumbs while apparently keeping an eye on both Jan and him.  

Hank sighed.  ”Oh, no, guys…!  First of all, stop peeping, and second of all…”  He untangled himself from Jan.  ”Sorry, honey…”  

He got up, picked up the plates and the pizza box, swept off the crumbs that could have fallen on the coffee table, and stacked everything up.  ”… no more food for you tonight.”  

He took everything back to the kitchen and cleaned everything up before coming back to the living room, where Jan was waiting for him.  He plopped himself down on the couch and sighed again.  Dave and Matthew were still there, staring at them.  ”Seriously guys…  go stare at something else…”  He turned his attention back to Jan and chuckled.  ”They seem a bit too curious for my taste.”

"It’s okay. It’s the past and I forgive you. We’re both better than we were and we have Ollie on the way. So I think we’re doing much better." She said, smiling at him. She’d always worried about him. But she hadn’t been able to do anything because he hadn’t wanted to tell her what was wrong. But that was changing now and she was glad for it. She wanted to always be there when he needed her.

She smiled at his compliments and cuddled close to him. “Okay. That I can handle. And I would like it very much.” She said, kissing him back and smiling into it as she let hand run through his hair. “Course you can seduce me by just being shirtless you, know. You’re a very attractive and handsome man.” She let her free hand rest against his chest as she kissed him again.

Hank smiled.  Jan’s forgiveness meant a lot to him, even more so since he was having such a hard time forgiving himself.  It somehow helped him realized that it was possible to be forgiven, after all.  And he agreed with Jan.  They were both doing much better at communicating with each other.  Just thinking that she wasn’t running off scared but actually really wanted to help him go through the rougher times that were bound to happen was such a relief.  He had tried dealing with that on his own before, and while he did manage to make it through, he knew it would be a lot easier with Jan’s support and love.  

He pulled back from the kiss after a moment, still smiling at Jan.  ”Good.  Then that’s what I’ll do.”  He pecked another kiss to her lips and let her run her fingers through his hair, enjoying the feeling.  ”Really?  Well, you know…  flattery is not necessary…  you’ve already won me over a long time ago, honey.”  

He returned her kiss tenderly, letting a bit of eagerness filter through it as he pulled her close to him.
