This is part of my “500 Follower Celebration”. There will be five drabbles in total; fear, happiness, anger, love and sadness. These are just scene shots in the form of drabbles. They may eventually be turned into fics. I hope that you enjoy them and thank you again for following!
The light streaming in through the window was warm against his skin as he laid there, tangled in the sheets. He sighed and opened his eyes to see you lying there next to him with your head against his chest, sound asleep. Your arm was draped over his chest, your hair lying down on your shoulders in soft waves; the curls from last night having fallen down. You were perfect.
He couldn’t stop the smile on his face as he watched you sleeping, watched your chest rise and fall with each breath, your heartbeat right next to his.
He gently put his arm around your shoulders and softly ran his hands up and down your back, sliding the sheet down to your waist, careful not to wake you.
Last night had been a blur of tuxedos and dresses, champagne and dancing; your smile that lit up the room. He only had eyes for you. When you looked up at him the whole world disappeared and it was only you. He had spent the night watching you laugh and dance with everyone in the room; they all wanted time with you. But he was the one who got to take you home at the end of the night.
You shifted closer, sliding your leg over his and moving your hand up his chest. He looked down at the band on your finger and he could feel his heart skip a beat. You were his and he was yours; forever. He had promised to love you through this lifetime and the next; whatever the future brought for you, he would never leave your side.
He placed his hand over yours and held it there, feeling the love in his heart overflow at the mere thought of you. You were so fragile lying there, so very human as you slept against him. He would spend his dying breath keeping you safe. You were everything to him; his world revolved only around you.
He lifted your hand to his lips and kissed your knuckles, smiling even bigger when he saw your eyes flutter and look up at him through a halo of soft waves. Your smile melted his heart as you moved up to place your lips against his, kissing him softly in the early morning light. He slid his arms around your waist and pulled you up closer, sliding your warm body up against his.
He sighed at the touch of your hands against his face and rolled you back so that he was over you.
He broke the kiss and looked down at you in complete awe; the woman who had captured an angel with a smile. He rested on one elbow and cupped your cheek, sliding his thumb across, memorizing every detail. There was no world outside waiting; no people, no danger. There was only you and him, there entwined in a perfect morning of slow kisses and warm sheets.
You placed your hand over his, smiling up at him, whispering ‘I love you’ in the quiet of the morning. He leaned in and pressed his lips against yours, drinking you in as your bodies moved together. For now he was happy. For now he had everything that he had ever wanted. For now there was nothing that could ever come into the world that existed within these four walls.
