Author's Notes: I haven't written Skate in months, so this is just a little warm up. Feedback is very much appreciated so I can improve what I write, but it's not a must. This fic can be counted as both AU and Future (in a veery distant future *lol*)

Kate smiled to herself as she read the novel in her lap. There wasn't anything fun in the book; it was a Greek drama which was known to end badly, so the smile was for the casual viewer a complete mystery.

Suddenly there was some cursing from the kitchen and a handsome, tall; blonde man came from the doorway, waving his hand as if he's burned it.

"I don't care what you say, Freckles," Sawyer muttered angrily, "That minced meat recipe you found on the internet is impossible to cook."

Kate smiled, not taking her eyes of the book, although she wasn't reading anymore. "You'd think that after eight times you'd get the hang of things," Kate finally looked up from the book and looked adoringly at her husband, "I swear, when we are seventy, you still won't have learned it. I wonder if there's anything as 'tenth time is the charm' - 'cause clearly the third time didn't work so well for you."

Sawyer rolled his eyes, then a sinister grin came across his face and before Kate could react, Sawyer jumped at her and started to tickle her. After many years together he knew the exact spots that made her laugh the most.

"I'll give ya for not learnin'." he laughed and continued tickling her as Kate laughed hysterically.

Somehow in the wrestling Kate landed in Sawyer's lap and just when Sawyer's arms were getting sore from avoiding Kate's fists and finding the spots that he loved to tickle the best; Kate leaned towards him and her lips met his own.

Sawyer immediately stopped with the torture, put his hand on her back and pressed her closer against him, closing the space between them and he almost shivered in contentment when Kate's small but soft and energetic hand touched the back of his neck.

"I love you baby." He breathed between the kisses and Kate smiled and laughed lightly:

"I know."
