30 DAY SHIP CHALLENGE: The pairing with the most chemistry. (Day 4)

Lana immediately felt safe when Elijah pulled her close and rubbed her back, and even more so when he placed his chin on her head. She was so terrified of rejection that she didn’t think that Elijah would hold her this intimately. Sure, he was no superman. He was clumsy, awkward, skinny as hell, but his hesitant yet sincere touch, his awkward yet reassuring words, his smile that said he was just as scared as she was, but convinced her the world wasn’t ending…all of those things made her feel like nothing could harm her. She knew he loved her, and that he was going to do everything he could to make this right.
