“My parents taught me to feel comfortable about my body. They told me there’s a beauty in whatever you are. Also I feel it’s very important to portray love and sex in the right way” –Jake Gyllenhaal, to the Daily Mail in 2010, re: love scenes in “Love and Other Drugs”

Finding this quote was just my desperate choice to justify doing a post on his chest hair. ;)

love & other dooms || past

It was now the second time he had hit the snooze button, and they only had four more minutes of silence before it would go off again. As usual, he had heard it long before Zoey had–or would–but he wasn’t complaining. It was, after all, his alarm and besides it meant that he had a few more moments of quiet observation. She was sprawled across his chest, one arm tucked underneath and the other laying off his chest haphazardly. It wasn’t as if they fell asleep like that, somehow, the two always woke up entwined. 

She was well aware of his strange habit to watch her as she slept, but he’d never been outward about his reasons why. Truthfully, he hadn’t been sure of it himself for a while, only recently discovering the reason. Zoey, in life, was a blazing flame–standing in fury and burning up anything that threatened to steal her light. There was nothing wrong with that, in fact, he was quite enamoured with her power and the strength she carried within her chest. It just also meant that moments like this, moments when her armour was shed, were a rare sighting and thus all the more desirable to witness. Her face was smoother, and her body so soft and altogether human. It was nice, and strangely ignited a need within him to keep her protected while she was in this state. They had nothing to fear, and yet he couldn’t sleep until her breath had deepened and he always woke before her eyes fluttered open. 

Peculiar still, he never would wake feeling unrested. Sure, it would hit him later on in the day, but for the most part just being around her gave him an abundance of energy. Even a late night like the last, when they’d stayed up for much longer than they should have–knowing that he had to wake up early, as well–even though Joey also had arrived late, he was feeling energized. This moment was so perfect, for whatever reason–maybe it was the way the light hit her hair through the window, or the settling chill of fall in the house–he had a fleeting moment of fear in his heart. That maybe there was no going up from here. But one look at her and all absurd thoughts such as that were gone. The future made no difference in the here and now. He groaned as the third alarm rang again, this time louder than ever.
