If you're still doing those prompts how about nessian #29 "does that line ever work?"
I am indeed still doing those prompts! I’ve still got one in the works, since I plan to do a long fic for it, but this one spawned a drabble it seems. Hope you enjoy some engaged!Nessian fluff :3
“Oh no,” Cassian said from atop the nest of pillows, beanbags, cushions, and blankets he had assembled, “It appears I have fallen and can’t get up.”
“Does that line ever work?” Nesta asked, crossing her arms over her chest and looking down at the dishevelled moron she was, for some reason, engaged to.
“You’d be surprised,” Cassian said, smirking. “I’ve avoided many a black eye during fights with Rhysand with this little trick.”
Rolling her eyes, Nesta sighed. It was a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon, and she had a mountain of work to do. Of course, the human incarnation of a labrador retriever that she called her fiancee had informed her she would do no such thing. Instead, she had been forced to watch from her desk as he carried in comfortable squishy thing upon comfortable squishy thing, constructing what he deemed to be ‘The Best Pillow Fort Ever’. To his credit, it did look damn comfortable.
Sprawled amongst it all, he held a hand out to her. “Come here, my Ice Queen,” he said, his voice soft, warm, inviting; everything her work and the weather wasn’t. “You’ve worked hard enough all week. Let me take care of you for once.”
It had taken months, well over a year, even, for Nesta to let down her walls enough to allow Cas in. Longer still to be vulnerable enough to let him take some of the burden from her shoulders. Many nights of gentle back rubs and loving kisses had proven it to be the right choice, however. He knew, in the coldest of times, how to keep her warm.
“Five minutes,” she agreed, not meaning a word of it as she threaded his large fingers with her small, manicured ones. She fell into the cocoon of warmth and cuddles, embraced amongst his strong arms. They both knew they’d awake in the exact same position come dawn.
After everything they’d been through together, she wouldn’t change a thing.
