…this AU is going to kill me.
Alistair let out a breath he didn’t know he had been holding, the world falling away from him as Evelyn came into full focus. He stepped closer, eyes silently asking permission for him to continue. Her hands came from behind her back, but still gripped the edge of the kitchen counter. Slowly, Alistair raised one of his hands, his fingers holding a slight tremor as he cupped her cheek.
He met her gaze again as another gasp left her, wondering if she was really ok with this situation. For him, it was a dream come true—all he had ever wanted was to kiss her, and it was amazing to realize he had probably wanted this as long as he knew her. Alistair settled his other hand on her waist, sighing softly at the warmth that was radiating through her clothes.
“Evelyn.” He whispered her name, his breath fanning over her lips as he dipped his head down, unable to close his eyes until the last moment as his lips hovered over hers.
