“Now, moral universalism posits that actions are objectively true or false; that all actions should be based on the same set of normative ethics”. He held each of her hands in one of his, drawing slow, soft circles into her palms with his thumbs.
She let out a soft sigh and he bit back a smirk, sliding his hands out of hers and reveling in the goosebumps that trailed behind as he ran them up and down her arms. “Moral relativism, on the other hand,” his voice sounded low and deep in his own ears, “is the belief that morality is subjective; each action should be judged in its own context”.
One hand reached up to cup her face, while the other arm wrapped around her hips and pulled her closer. “Nihilism would argue that nothing can truly be right or wrong, and so any moral judgment is meaningless”. Her eyes had closed and she hummed faintly as his hand left her cheek and joined the other in tracing feather light patterns across the small of her back.
“Finally, hedonism,” a shiver ran through her and her grinned as he leaned closer to whisper in her ear “is the idea that the only real good is pleasure. That selfish pleasure should be the only goal”.
“Oh ok, wow.” she breathed out, her arms tightening around his neck. “Chidi?” He hummed for her to continue, pulling away enough to gaze down at her face. Her eyes, darkened to a deep navy blue, opened, and her voice was slightly hoarse. “Stop talking.”
She gave him no chance to respond as she suddenly surged upwards and crashed her lips to his, but he couldn’t really find it in him to care.
