COMING SOON: We’re What’s Right In This World
for @1dreversebang exchange
Louis shifted up, his palms cradling Harry’s jaw, his lips against his boy’s. Not kissing, just resting there, so Louis could feel him. “Promise me you’ll come back to me.”
Harry’s hands smoothed down the side of Louis’ body, then came up to hold the back of his head. “You know I can’t do that. I’ll never lie to you, Lou.”
He wondered if his fingers would leave little bruises where they dug into Harry’s skin. “Promise me. We’re going to have our cottage. And our dogs. And our breakfast in the garden where nothing grows because of the wind from the sea. Promise me.”
“I won’t.” Stubborn as always, his boy. “I’ll promise you, I’ll love you all my life. I’ll promise, you’ll never leave my thoughts. I’ll promise you, you’re my forever and my always. But promising you something I can’t cheapens the things I can.”
Or the World War II AU where Harry goes off to fight and all Louis wants to do is be the boy who brings him home. Coming soon, as part of the @1dreversebang fic exchange.
