TITLE: Liquid Static
AUTHOR:sparklycupcakex 
PAIRING/POV: Rob/Kristen
RATING: R
SUMMARY:  I finally finished it! :) It took me a while, so I apologise, but I'm a perfectionist & it's hard for me to let my one-shots go sometimes! I'm guessing you all know what this is about if I say...Bootypest!! ;) Ohhh yes. Set around Kristen's birthday, when she went to visit Rob in Budapest, for Bel Ami filming. It's my interpretation of how I think Kristen came to own the infamous ring & necklace, because I think they were a pretty big deal. Also included - sexytimes, though brief, & a cupcake! Enjoy, my dears! (: xo
WARNINGS: Sexual situations.
DISCLAIMER: Very sadly, I do not own Rob or Kristen. I just like to think I do ;) They are real people & I just like to toy with them.
WORDCOUNT: 3,834.

I never planned my birthdays. They always seemed to just sneak up on me when I was working or far too busy to organise celebrations. And, besides, it was a well known fact amongst my family and friends that I hated being the centre of attention,  which is why  I constantly found myself dismissing my brothers’ wishes for a party packed with everyone I’d ever met. But that wasn’t the main reason. Not at all. In all honesty, I’d gotten used to having Rob around for my birthdays, now that he’d been there two years in a row; it felt comfortable and routine for him to be there, and with him gone filming Bel Ami in Hungary, I knew that I’d feel lost without him by my side.  

I hadn’t seen Rob in over 2 weeks, not since we attended the BAFTA awards together. For myself, and for him also, I was sure, that even that was too brief and fleeting; we never had enough time together. But, we knew what we were signing up for when we started a relationship. We were both actors, and so we would have to learn to deal with going at it long distances sometimes, regardless of how tough it was. Our first separation was after New Moon, when I was in L.A and Rob in New York, and I’d never felt more alone in my entire life. We were so close, but so far also. And yet, this was more difficult. It got harder with every separation; even with short ones, because we grew closer with each moment, so saying goodbye was too bittersweet. I simply kept telling myself that I would wait 6 months or maybe more, just for the reunion, because our time together was always bliss.

It wasn’t long before people started to take note of this loneliness. One morning, when I went to visit my parents, my Mom must have noticed the longing in my eyes, because she pulled me aside and without even bothering to greet me, she turned to me with a serious expression, both hands on my shoulders, and said “Go be with him. I know that’s what you want. Why are you even still here?”

“You’re sure?” I checked, not wanting to offend her. “You don’t mind?”

“Don’t be silly, you know I love Rob. I just want you to be happy on your birthday and I know that he makes you happy”

And she was right. He did make me happy. More so than anyone or anything. I didn’t know why I hadn’t thought of it before.

I didn’t waste a minute, hurriedly throwing some clothes into a duffel bag and hopping onto the first flight to Budapest I could find.

Hence, why I was now sat on the sofa in Rob’s trailer, awaiting his arrival. In Budapest. On my birthday. And it felt so right; there was nowhere else in the world I’d rather be.

Any other day, I would have gladly gone over to watch Rob film his scene, but, for one, I wanted my guest appearance on set to be a surprise, and secondly, I knew that if Rob spotted me after our time apart, I would end up being a distraction rather than a help. Settling on the sofa to wait for him, I caught a glimpse of his black beanie out of the corner of my eye and picked it up instantly, glad to hold any piece of him, especially one he cherished so dearly. I laughed as I remembered the time he’d lent it to me for Eclipse promotion in Sydney and texted me about a thousand times to check I hadn’t misplaced it, dropped in the water, or set it on fire by accident.

The hat felt so...like Rob. It smelt of him – of the Camel’s Lights cigarettes he and I both smoked but always pledged to give up eventually, of the musky aftershave he always used, and of the Herbal Essences shampoo he’d discovered a love for when he found it on our bedroom counter not long ago. It felt like home. I clutched his beanie tightly in one hand and glanced around his trailer curiously. He wasn’t one for furnishing his trailers and neither was I – in fact, the only furnishing I ever needed was Jella – but no one could mistake that this particular trailer belonged to Rob, what with the mini fridge, Raybans on the countertop, the script covered in red, messy, handwritten notes, and the framed picture of he and I on the – wait, I thought with a start. I’d never seen that before.

I moved off the sofa to the counter near the door, where Rob had framed the very familiar picture of himself, Jella and I that my brother had taken in our house about six months prior. I smirked to myself at the strained relationship Rob had with the other man in my life, but the picture warmed my heart at the same time. We looked like a happy family, Rob with one arm around me and the other around my cat, or our cat, I corrected myself. I’d invited Rob into my life with open arms and never looked back. It both amazed and scared me a little to think of how far we’d come and the many obstacles we’d already overcome. I just prayed things never changed.

Just as I began to go down memory lane, the door unlatched behind me, and I jumped, the beanie long forgotten.

Rob stood there looking every bit the sex god as per usual, incredibly handsome, in all his Victorian dress and black top hat in hand. His eyes widened in shock as he took in my presence and the next thing I knew, I was gathered up in his arms before I’d had the chance to blink.

“Kristen! I...oh my god, I can’t believe you’re here!” Rob exclaimed, embracing me with such vigour that I was lifted off my feet and swung around the room.

“Here I am!” I smiled back, every pore in my body sinking into him, every cell in my body sighing in relief at finally being able to be held by him again after what seemed like an eternity.

“I missed you so much” Rob murmured, kissing everywhere he could reach, whilst I melted under his touch. “I was going to fly back to you if I couldn’t see you soon”

“I know. I missed you too” I replied quietly, “A lot”

“Wait a minute, I forgot something...” Rob realised, carrying me over to the sofa and putting me down gently. He went over to his mini fridge and pulled out something small, then reached into his jacket pocket for his lighter.

“Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Kristen, happy birthday to you!” Rob sang happily, in the voice I’d missed so much, then came and sat next to me on the sofa, presenting me with a birthday cupcake, lit up with a candle sticking out of it.

“Oh! You’re such a dork. But, thank you, it looks lovely” I laughed, looking down at the cupcake in my hands, covered in bright pink icing.

“Make a wish, love!” Rob said obviously, as if talking to a child.

“I know what to do” I retorted with a fleeting glare, “but I just don’t know what more to wish for. I’m here, with you, aren’t I?”

As Rob nodded thoughtfully, I paused, remembering my earlier sentiments about wanting things to never change, to stay perfect. With that wish in mind, I blew out the candle and looked up into Rob’s beautiful eyes, brimming with love and adoration as always.

“And now...” Rob announced dramatically, reaching under the sofa to produce two small gift bags. “Time for your presents!”

He held in his hands two small gift bags, one black with a gold chain for a handle and the other deep purple with a pink, rope handle. Both looked incredibly expensive and both bore the names of what I could only guess to be jewellery stores in fancy scripture across the bottom.

“Rob, you didn’t have to get me anything...” I said quietly, about to protest against him spending money on me, since simply being able to spend my birthday with him was more than I could have ever wanted, but Rob gently put a finger to my lips.

“Ssh. I’ll have none of that. I wanted to!” The giddy excitement in his tone and the sparkle in his eyes stopped me from continuing my girlfriendly sassing. I made a show of sighing theatrically, closing my eyes, and holding out my hands as Rob handed over my first present, in the black box.

“They kind of go together...” Rob said nervously, “Like a set.”

I opened the bag and pulled out what could only be a ring box – small, velvet, and the notion of which had the frozen with apprehension. I looked up at Rob with wide, anxious eyes as he smiled at me reassuringly.

“Don’t worry. It’s not what you think” He paused, reaching to cup my face with his hand, thumb and forefinger gently stroking. “Not yet, anyway”

I slowly unlatched the box with fingers I didn’t even realise were shaking, to find a beautiful yet simple gold ring, laying atop a bed of midnight blue-black velvet. Upon taking it out, I could see how someone may mistake it for a gold wedding band, but as I rotated it around in my fingers, admiring it’s classic beauty and the way it shone as I held it to the light, what looked like inscription on the inside caught my eye. Rob’s name was engraved in the inside band of it, in his own messy, chicken-scrawl signature that I’d grown to love.

“Thank you Rob, I love it” I beamed, scooting my body closer to his to lean in for a kiss.

“Really? You don’t think it’s too corny?” Rob asked, his features still clouded with uncertainty and fear that I wouldn’t like his gifts, when, in fact, I couldn’t think of anything I could want more. The ring was beautiful yet quirky at the same time, just like Rob. It comforted me to think I would now be able to carry around a constant reminder of the one person I’d gotten accustomed to missing.

“Tom said it looked like it came out of a cereal box, but then, what does he know about-“Rob babbled quickly, his brows furrowed in worry. I giggled, silencing him as I climbed up his lap and flung my arms around his neck, kissing him deeply and letting my tongue linger there in his mouth, savouring the taste of his tongue and the way his soft lips moved against mine in perfect harmony, to let him know what I really thought of my present.

“So, I take it you liked it then?” Rob breathed, our foreheads pressed together as his arms circled my waist.

“Very much so. Thank you, babe, it’s lovely”

“So are you” He kissed my nose, and then reached behind us for the ring. “This is sort of like a promise ring from me to you. I promise to love you continually and that my heart is forever yours. You’ve had it since the moment I met you, in fact, on Catherine’s bed, and my feelings for you have only grown stronger as time went on” Rob paused, tightening his grip around my waist with one arm and softly brushing my hair away from my face with the other. “Kristen, you’re the first girl I ever truly been in love with and I can honestly say that I’d happily spend the rest of my days with you. This isn’t a proposal, not yet, it’s just my way of saying that I’m always gonna be here for you, wherever in the world we may be. And I thought you could wear this without looking too conspicuous and wherever you are, you know I’m right there with you”

I wasn’t sure when the tears had begun to fall, but I did know that they were now steadily trickling down my cheeks. I was frozen on his lap by the weight of his words, wondering what I possibly did to deserve him. Rob was the most loving, caring, honest person I had ever had the pleasure of meeting and I constantly had to thank whatever higher powers were up there for sending him in my direction. I opened my mouth to try and formulate some kind of worthy, genuine response, but I was at a loss for how I could ever better that.

“I love you. So much. Thank you” I managed to splutter, erupting into a fresh round of tears. I internally rolled my eyes – here I was, my boyfriend baring his heart and soul to me, and all I could manage in return was to be Kristen, the human water sprinkler.

“Oh, sweetheart! Rob murmured, drawing me even closer to him if that were possible, and enveloping me in a hug. “I love you too” He brushed feather-light kisses to the top of my head, hands running up and down my back in soothing waves. “Hey, love, it’s your birthday! Don’t cry” He softly wiped away the last remaining tears with his thumbs.

“No, they’re happy tears!” I assured him quickly, smiling to prove it. “I just can’t believe how lucky I am to have you”

“And I the same” Rob smiled back, lifting the ring from it’s box. He took my left hand in his own and slid the ring onto my middle finger.

“What do you think?” he asked, keeping our fingers loosely laced together.

I twirled my hand around in his various times, feigning contemplation, but, for fear of giving him a panic attack, I grinned, announcing finally, “It’s perfect”

I smiled to see his own grin widen. “Really?”

I nodded an ‘Mmhmm’ against him, admiring the way it felt like it had always been there on my hand.

“Then you’ll love this!” Rob exclaimed happily, his tone sounding almost proud of himself. He then proceeded to awkwardly place the other bag in my hands. I slid off my perch on his lap so I was sat next to him on the sofa, the deep purple gift bag beckoning to me like a siren call. Rob watched excitedly as I delved into the bag and this time, pulled out a slightly different box, rectangular in shape. I slowly popped open the box and what lay inside took my breath away. I looked up at him, eyes like saucers.

“You-you remembered” I breathed, the dreaded tears already threatening to continue falling.

The necklace inside was silver and on a long chain with an eight-shaped pendant dangling from the bottom. Encrusted in the pendant were at least twenty small diamonds, so beautiful and dazzling that they could put Edward Cullen to shame. It was gorgeous on it’s own, but what really made it more beautiful was what the symbol actually meant and moreover, the fact that Rob had remembered what I had told him in London nearly two years ago.

“You sound surprised!” Rob smirked, “I do pay attention, you know. Especially where you’re concerned”

“No, I just...It was such a long time ago...” I corrected, fondly pulling up the memory of that night from the dark abyss of my mind.

It was a cold, windy night in London, and Rob and I were only there for one night, for Twilight promotion. It was my first visit to the capital city and to make up for the fact that we were unable to engage in regular, touristy-type activities, Rob had suggested that we went out exploring later at night when the chances of getting mobbed were at their lowest. I could recall going out for dinner at some posh restaurant I had misplaced the name of and sampling something Rob had called ‘cottage pie’, which, although at first sounded like something Jella had just thrown up, turned out to be rather tasty actually. Rob then excitedly showed me a few places of interest – where he went to school, where Tom was banned from for setting fire to the bathroom, even his parents’ house, where I’d met his wonderful and welcoming family for the first time (and the late Patty, of course). By around 10pm, we were wandering the still crowded streets of Metropolitan London, when, for whatever reason, we stopped at a jewellery store. I’d never been a girly girl, or a big one for fashion, but I’d always loved jewellery. Not gaudy, Lady Gaga-esque style, but simply, elegant pieces, which may have been why we ended up at Chanel, my favourite designer, no less. Rob never complained once as I pointed out the infinity symbol on a pair of earrings to him, explaining that it stood for endless, timeless love, time looping back over itself, and can represent the conjoining and equality between male and female for eternity.

He did look genuinely interested, unlike most other guys would have, and like he was really concentrating – but I figured that was just Rob being all broody. I never dreamt he’d retain the information; I mean, on the rare occasions I talked to Michael about jewellery, he’s just nod his head and pretend he was listening, but then change the subject two seconds later. But Rob was different. The necklace I held in my hands and was marvelling over was proof of that.

“It was a long time ago” Rob agreed, rousing me out of my reverie. “But, even back then, even when things were more...complicated, I always knew I’d buy something like that for you. I was just waiting on the right moment”

It constantly touched me how a memory that seemed so insignificant and trivial to me at the time stood out so to Rob. It was a testament to what an amazing boyfriend he truly was.

“It’s...so gorgeous. Really. Thank you, Rob!” I grinned, running my fingers over the diamonds lightly.

“You don’t need to keep thanking me, love. I’m just glad you like them both” He carefully undid the clasp on the necklace, and after brushing the softest of kisses to my neck, did it up on my neck, where, like the ring had done, felt right at home. “Having you here, in Hungary, with me, is all I could ever want or need. And besides, it’s your birthday – I should be the one giving you what you really need, and not you flying halfway around the globe to see me. Not that I don’t appreciate it” he clarified, pulling me into his side as I snuggled into his neck. “Because I do. I missed you so much”

Rob’s words, as innocent as they were, stirred up certain feelings in me I hadn’t been able to freely express for far too long. His gentle words and soft caresses only left me wanting more and as my hungry eyes roamed over the beautiful, rugged body of the man I loved, the man who I hadn’t properly touched in over two weeks, my eyes darkened with desire. I could feel the tell-tale flames spreading across my body, so, to Rob’s utter surprise, I climbed back onto his lap and locked my arms in a death grip around his neck.

“You’re right” I murmured, nibbling at his neck. “It is my birthday” Peck. “And I really missed you too” Kiss. “So, you want to know what I really need?” Bite.

Rob yelped in shock, but it was only a matter of seconds before I noticed the change in his composure, the way his own eyes burned. “I don’t need to be asked twice!” he replied, hands travelling down my back. “And what kind of man would I be if I didn’t indulge my girlfriend on her birthday?”

“Terrible” I managed, hands already in his hair.

Rob’s able hands made quick work of my shirt, which, to be fair, was his anyway, as I awkwardly tried to unbutton his own Victorian dress shirt, which resulted in much giggling and me pinning him flat against the sofa – much to his delight. It was a kind of unspoken rule between the two of us that whenever we made love in each other’s trailers, we always left bottoms on – you know, just in case of unforeseen visitors. But, truth be told, in that moment, I didn’t care who was watching.

Due to our time apart, every touch, every kiss, and every word Rob whispered huskily into my ear melted into my skin like liquid static, leaving me glowing.

“Jesus, Kris, you’re so beautiful. I missed this” Rob breathed then in my ear. I shivered with desire and grabbed at him desperately at as much of him as I could. The feel of our bodies moving together in perfect harmony was something I never realised I’d missed until those feelings of longing were aroused deep in my subconscious.

Making love with Rob always felt like this, like the first time again, but this was on another level entirely. I craved every inch of rob’s gorgeous body – wanted to feel his three day stubble against my skin, to have his guitar-calloused fingers on me, for his velvet soft lips to be all over my starving canvas. Just as Rob roughly rolled me underneath him to presumably carry out my unspoken wishes, there was a loud knocking on the trailer door, followed by the deep, baritone voice of Rob’s director.

“Rob! I don’t mean to disturb you, but are you ready to shoot the next scene?”

“Uh-huh. Sure! Just give me a sec!” Rob called back breathily, still hovering over me.

I sighed as Rob moved reluctantly off of me to get dressed. I hadn’t even considered how short his lunch break was. Ah well, I had gotten a sufficient fill of my boyfriend for now.

Rob hurriedly zipped up his trousers and shrugged on his white shirt, leaving his bow tie fully undone around his neck. After slipping on his socks and shoes, he turned back to me with an apologetic smile. “I’m sorry, love. Duty calls.” He paused, bending down to softly kiss my forehead. “I promise you we’ll finish up where we left off soon as I get back. I love you!” He smiled, plucking three swift kisses onto my lips, as I hung onto the last one for as long as I could.

“I’m holding you to that” I smiled back, “Now, go enjoy your threesome. I hope you think of me”

Rob glared at me, flipping me the bird as he turned to leave.

“I love you too!” I called, giggling mischievously as I realised with a start that Rob had buttoned his shirt in all the wrong holes and his delicious hair was sticking up in every direction.

Nothing like marking your territory, I thought to myself giddily. Oh, what a birthday.
