It’s only natural, Grant assumes, that there be a little wrestling for space when trying to share a double bed between three people. Arabella is the smallest of them but she seems to take up much more than her share of the space and she has her devious means of getting it. A sharp elbow here, a nudge there… and the tickling.
Usually it stops quickly enough when Grant or Jonathan move to give her a little more space, but this evening she carries on just a little too long for it to be innocent. She knows, damnit, exactly what it does to him. Her slim fingers run down his sides, wriggling against his skin and he can’t help his reaction to it: uncontrollable, undignified and rather breathless giggling.
Title: Three in a Bed
Characters: Colquhoun Grant/Arabella Strange/Jonathan Strange
Summary: A struggle for space when there are three in a bed turns into an opportunity for something more.
Author’s Notes: Written for a kinkmeme prompt which asked for Grant being tickled. OT3 smut ensued.
NPS Notes: I guessed, and the author confirmed, that this was conceived as part of the alternative universe story The Art of Ungentlemanly Warfare, hence the picture of smiling AU uniformed Grant.
