Pairing: Digger Harkness X Reader
Warnings: Some cursing and a few sexual innuendos
“Well aren’t you one satisfied pussy cat~?”
Digger chimed with a slight chuckle. He wrapped his big arms around you and pulled you close to him, allowing for your tired head to fall onto his chest. The big lug of a man was always in the mood to cuddle after a good romp in the bedroom. You could feel his body relax as you snuggled close to him. Smiling ever so lightly you completely melted too his touch.
“Pussy cat?” You giggled lightly, amused by his choice of words.
“Yea, you’re my lil’ pussy cat,” Kissing the top of your head you could feel him grinning ear to ear. “You’re purring like one anyways, did I fuck ya that good then, sweetheart?”
Placing your hand in the middle of his bare chest you began to fiddle with his chest hair. “You could say that.” It was true, the man was very good at what he did under the covers, he never left you unsatisfied. So, ‘purring like a pussycat’ was an appropriate comparison.
For a small moment there was a comfortable silence, the two of you laid together beneath the cozy covers, entwined in each others arms. The only sound you could hear was the steady rhythm of the Captain’s heart and the gentle breath that escaped his lips as he began drifting to sleep. But alas, the blissful feeling of this romantic embrace dispersed when you remembered that when you would wake up in the morning, Digger would already be gone.
“Today went by so fast..” You whispered, resting your hand flat on Digger’s chest, right over his heart.
“That it has.” He agreed, by the relaxed tone of his voice it was easy to tell he was fighting sleep. “I have to get up early for me flight tomorrow..” You could tell that he was ready to go to sleep but there was a feeling of discomfort stirring inside of you. He was taking a flight first thing in the morning to begin, what he described to be, ‘a heist to top all heist’ and he didn’t know exactly when he would return.
“I’m gonna miss you, ya know..” You whispered, feeling a little silly for wanting to talk about feelings but you were craving reassurance that all of this was not for nothing. “A lot, actually.”
You could hear as Digger took in a deep breath.
“I’m sorry, I don’t mean to pry, but…” You buried your face into his neck, feeling a little more emotional than you normally liked to show. “It’s just been really special, having you around lately. I hate not knowing when I’ll see you again, Digg.. You d-”
“Darlin’, comon now-” Slowly Digger unwrapped his arm from around your side and sat up. Following his lead you did the same so you could look him in the face.
“I know I’m not exactly a stable man, but you must know me intentions by now.”
A little confused by exactly what he meant you shook your head, wanting him to elaborate more. Digger burrowed his brows and was silent for a moment, taking time to process what he should say next. You crossed your legs and looked at him, waiting for him to continue.
“I’ll be back, ya know I always come back.”
“But you’ve never really given me a reason to think you will, you just show up every few months and stay for a few weeks and then you’re on your jolly way..”
“How have I not given you anything to have faith in, then? I always come back here, right back into your bed!”
Rolling your eyes a bit you laid down and turned your back to him, showing exactly how thrilled you were with that comment. Coming back to your bed, wow, how romantic.
Once he had realized how his wording came off as insensitive the tone in Digger’s voice melted into a more sweet and loving one. “Hey, sweetheart, listen-” He took a hold of your arm and gently pulled, trying to get you to turn back around to face him. “-You know why I’ll always be back?”
You were expecting a sexual comment, something along the lines of, “You’re ass is unbelievable” or “Who else will make me breakfast then fuck me on the kitchen table” so you refused to face his way. Instead you stared daggers off into the other direction.
“I’ll always be back because I fucking love you.”
Taken incredibly off guard by these words you looked at him, half expecting the man to laugh his confession of love off as a cruel joke.
“I really do love you, sweetheart..” Putting his arms around you he pulled you into his lap and snuggled his face into the crook of your neck. “You’re stuck with me, that I swear..”
