how do i say this: "i like you and that other night was great, although slightly weird because you're my friend's really close cousin, but he seems cool about it, so, anyway, do you want to do that again sometime, even though it's been a month since that night?"- without coming across as wanting to be too serious or too casual or too weird?

it was a night at his house, we ended up having a few touchy feely escapades on the couch while watching a movie with everyone else in the room unaware. in the end nothing more happened because we thought it was a bit iffy, her being my friend's cousin and all.
but, he's fine about it. problem is, i'm out of the state for three weeks for a job and don't have any way to contact her until i'm back. so, what would have been fine to say a day or three after the event is now a little strange. i'm not interested in anything totally serious, and neither is she (i'm told).
i've never set out to start a casual sort of relationship before. what's the equivalent of "do you want to go out on a date sometime?", and how do i say it given the month gap between that one night and talking to her again?
