“So long as my body lives, and yours - we are one flesh,” he whispered. His fingers touched me, hair and chin and neck and breast, and I breathed his breath and felt him solid under my hand. Then I lay with my head on his shoulder, the strength of him supporting me, the words deep and soft in his chest.
“And when my body shall cease, my soul will still be yours. Claire - I swear by my hope of heaven, I will not be parted from you”.
James Fraser, Drums of Autumn (Diana Gabaldon)
