Myka covered her grin with her hand as she leaned against the doorframe of her bedroom. The view in front of her was one of the most precious she had ever seen.
Helena was curled up in the middle of the bed, one arm under her head while the other was wrapped around Mr. Bear. Helena’s face was buried in the top of Mr. Bears head but the smooth rise and fall of her back told Myka that she was sleeping.
Myka pulled her phone out of her pocket and took a picture before fully stepping into the room.
She quickly stripped to her underwear, folding her clothes and putting them on the desk chair to deal with in the morning. She would usually handle them immediately, but a long retrieval had weighed down her limbs and seeing Helena curled up had taken any desire to fight her exhaustion.
She climbed onto the bed and pressed herself again Helena’s back. She pressed a kiss to the back of Helena’s neck and quickly fell asleep.
Two months later
“Holy frak, that is adorable.”
“How tired do you think they must have been to leave the door open?”
“Dude, they’re still dressed in their work clothes and everything.”
“They stayed awake long enough to get their teddy bears.”
“Those stay on the bed.”
Pete and Claudia both turned to Leena with surprised expressions.
“They sleep with them when the other is on a snag.”
Pete turned to Claudia. “You’re right, that is completely adorable.”
“You’re never going to let them live this down.”
