Drabble for cmonkatiekatie

Title: Lonely Tonight
Summary: Kate doesn't like to stay the night with Sawyer
Note: A drabble (yes, exactly 100 words!) for the delectable cmonkatiekatie. :)



Waking up entwined in someone’s arms gave her the same trapped sensation as being handcuffed. She knew Sawyer would understand. She was surprised that he’d turned out to be such a romantic, that he wanted to fall asleep wrapped around her.

So she stayed away, night after night.

When she came back, she smiled to see him curled up around the dog. She lowered the flap to his tent and let him be.

The next time wasn’t so funny when it was Jack nestled tight against him, contented smiles on both their faces.

(I'm such a hardass!)

I love how you can go from sweet one second to completely snarky the next and still be so seamless. This was me reading: Awww, Sawyer cuddles with pooches. *snort* stupid Kate!

And then likening Sawyer's arms around her to handcuffs is brilliant, she would so think that. It's one of those things you read and wish you had thought of yourself.

This made me smile so much! thank you :)

Hee, yes you are such a brutal taskmaster of a Queen, LOL! ;) (Taskmistress? ;D)

Glad you liked this! Kind of "snooze you lose," for Kate there, for taking Sawyer for granted! Esp. glad you liked the handcuff comparison. Why else would she bolt in the middle of the night, eh? She has no idea how good she had it!

:) Glee is a great reaction! I mean, it's hard to stick up for Kate when she treats Sawyer like so much chopped liver, yes?

Hee, I love the idea of Sawyer cuddling up to Vincent ... and of course, of Jack cuddling up to Sawyer! Kate had her chance, LOL! :) Thanks for reading, hon.

Saying that being wrapped in someone's arms is like being handcuffed is absolutely perfect. And the last line is killer.

Oh, thank you! I feel so bad for Sawyer that he's fallen for the one person on the island who has more issues than he does!

I love it! You put a lot into those 100 words. Kate's reasons make perfect sense, but then the way it turns on her is wonderful as well.

Sawyer totally needs Vincent, yes? :) Hee, and yes, that is what Kate deserves! And why do I not have that icon? *yoink*

This is really good and I like all the different aspects of it. Sawyer's arms making her feel trapped, reminding her of the restrictions of her handcuffs, that was a brilliant detail. And I love how Sawyer finds ways to replace her, unintentionally making it obvious that he can live without her. He seems kind of vulnerable here, the way that he needs someone beside him like Kate needs to be free. Really interesting.

Oh, thank you, hon. :) I do think Sawyer showed surprising vulnerability with her and it's such a shame that she used him the way she did, so yes, she deserves to regret her actions!

Hee, thanks, hon. ;) I do think that Sawyer and Vincent should hang out more! And of course you know my opinions on Jack/Sawyer!

I wickedly liked that.
Awww, curled up w/ Vincent - and I bet Sawyer cussed him out a few times before letting him nestle down with him. Same with Jack, I guess, before a few other things happened in the interim. ;)

Hee, thanks! And yes, nothing ever comes easy with Sawyer, does it? And ha, that sounded dirtier than I intended, LOL. Thanks for reading!
