just breathe

Friendly reminder to check you’re not holding tension in your body. Let your shoulders drop, unclench your hands and jaw. Take a deep breath. Much better.
Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.
Stop what you are doing. Go outside and breathe. The world will not end if you take ten minutes for yourself.
—  taking time for yourself is important
Just Breathe

This is definitely new territory for Louis.  And he likes it.

He wants to take care of Harry.  Wants everything with him.  Rationally, he knows Harry is a big boy (pun fully intended), but he also knows that there is a vulnerability to him, something Louis thinks maybe he’s the only one who has ever been privileged enough to see.  

It’s spellbinding, is what it is.  Because Louis has been traveling through life with one singular plan.  Finish school.  Get a job.  Be successful.  Maybe find someone to share it with, but that’s always been secondary to his success. Until he met Harry.

Harry snuffles next to him, and Louis feels the smile spreading across his face before he can stop it, a fresh wave of protectiveness washing over him.  He snuggles down under the covers further, and lets the softness of Harry’s back against his chest calm him, tug him back into that place of sleepiness — not quite alert, caught between sleep and wakefulness.

For a moment, he lets the memories from last night wash over him.  He remembers sinking inside of Harry and feeling the incredible heat of him surround him in every way.  He can hear Harry’s moans in his head right now, and it makes his tummy flip in a wild tumult of butterflies, ending in a delicious drag deep in his groin.  He remembers wanting to make it so good for his boy, so, so good.  He knows he shook with the need to stave off his own release because he wanted Harry to go first.  Wanted Harry to just let go.  He wanted to be the one to make that happen.  Wanted to see everything, feel everything.

With Harry.
