The Invisible Cord- Ch. 2
Thank you as always to @alittlemissfit who is always able to make my words make sense.
Sneak peek: I wonder if a little pain will make this day easier.
This chapter is NSFW!
Somewhere in rural Virginia
The sun is peeking through the blinds but I’ve been up for hours. Mulder’s hand lies heavy on my hip and I feel the sudden urge to turn and curl up against him, but I don’t want to wake him. Instead I roll away from the window to face him, watch his sleeping face.
“You okay?” he asks after a few minutes, not even needing to open his eyes.
I nod but then remember he can’t see me. Moving closer to him I curl into a ball, effectively trap my arms against his chest. He moves on instinct, wraps his arm around my back before kissing my forehead.
“Yeah,” I sight. “I just didn’t sleep well.”
“It’s her birthday,” he murmurs, his breath warming the top of my head.
“I know,” I murmur back, then lightly push him onto his back.
