The rain was ceaseless; the pelts of rain hit the apartment window, splattering against the glass. The dark, brooding clouds lay low in the sky. Cars zoomed along the street below, dragging the fallen leaves in their tires. People walked briskly below, racing to seek coverage from the relentless weather.
Tom’s slow, steady breath matched yours. His chest pressed against your back; his muscular arms wrapped around your waist. The fabric of his soft, gray sweatpants gently touched your bare legs. The mingled body heat from under the blanket kept both of you warm from the brisk autumn air.
Shifting your position to face Tom, you scanned his features. His face rested against the pillow; his hair strewn in opposing directions. His eyelashes long and dark. You watched as his mouth subtly moved as he took in each breath.
Reaching out a hand to brush stray hairs out of his face, you whispered: “Let’s just stay inside today? Do nothing?… Sound good, darling?”
Tom’s eyes slowly opened to your voice; his brown eyes warm.
“Sounds perfect,” he replied, his voice raspy and low. He reached up his hand, gently stroking your cheek. He mumbled, “I love you,” into your hair and kissed your forehead. Tom pulled you closer into his chest, subtly asking for more sleep.
The rain continued to rhythmically drum against the window, drawing you back into peaceful sleep.
