A moment to appreciate his body heat as she crawled into bed behind him, pressing against his back as the big spoon. Eyes closed and she let go of a sigh. He was taller, so she didn’t fit like he did. Hips didn’t meet the same way in this position, so she threw a leg over the arch just above his legs. Arm wormed under his and around his chest. Hand coming to rest so that she could feel his heart beat against her palm. A kiss to the back of his shoulder and she rested her face there. Just happy to feel him against her.
“Can’t sleep?” he asked sleepily, reaching up to twist his fingers together with hers.
“No.” But already she could feel some of the tension leaving her body.
Bringing her hand up, he kissed the palm then lifted her arm up, allowing him room to roll over onto his back. Gathering her up, he pulled her against her chest.
Leg till sprawled over his, hand found his heart again. Head resting on his shoulder she snuggled close. His arm wrapped around her, hand against her back.
With a soft kiss to her forehead he said, “Sleep.”
Tasha offered no answer but let go and relaxed against him.
