Skye pulls Jemma up to her feet. “I honestly didn’t think I hit that hard, are you alright?”
Jemma smiles, and rubs at her shoulder. Skye tends to hit harder then Fitz, and Jemma had been very distracted as of late. It doesn’t help that her very distraction happened to be Skye.
"I’m alright," Skye brightens at that and Jemma’s heart does an odd flip flop at the warm smile Skye gives her. "Whats a few bruises to a SHIELD agent?"
"You wanna go for another round? I’ll go easy this time." Skye was bouncing on her toes, full of energy, and Jemma took a mental note of yet another possible symptom of the serum. Skye was usually the most energetic of the team, but lately she’s been non stop. Skye’s even been sleeping less and the fact that Coulson also didn’t require as much sleep as well could not be a coincidence.
"I think I’m going to tap out for this round Skye," Skye just nods and sips out of her water bottle holding out to Jemma so she could also take a sip. Jemma takes it gratefully, and manages to hide her blush at her childish thoughts of just having an "indirect kiss" with Skye. "I could probably go get Fitz to come out of the lab, he could probably use the training."
Skye doesn’t answer and Jemma notices how Skye is staring at her hands deep in thought. She’s been doing that a lot lately, escaping into her own thoughts, and every time Jemma worries about her.
Skye shakes her head and laughs, though it sounds forced. “Sorry, just thinking of all the ways I can land Fitz on his ass.”
"Oh yeah, I’ve got all this energy and Fitz won’t see whats coming." Skye punches at the air a few times, and she continues without looking at Jemma. "You know if something ever happens you should find out what this stuff is. I’m sure it could come in hand-"
"Don’t you dare finish that sentence." Skye looks up alarmed and Jemma supposes she must look something close to crazy. She’s just so angry at Skye for even beginning to joke about things like that. "I know you wan’t answers and I promise to get them for you, but you mean too much to me and I don’t think I could ever survive seeing you hurt like that again."
Jemma’s eyes widen when she realized what she just practically confessed and she goes to turn around but a hand on her wrist stops her. She takes in a shaky breath and turns around expecting to see- anything other then how Skye is looking at her now. Skye is looking at Jemma like she’s the most precious thing in the world and Jemma feels hope flare in her chest.
"You mean that?" Jemma can only nod and suddenly she finds her self being pulled into a fierce hug. "Can I kiss you?"
