…Dare to Love: Part 1/1…
Emma settled next to Killian on the couch, her hand moving to stroke the hair at the nape of his neck.
“So Henry is spending the whole weekend at Regina’s. We have the entire house to ourselves for the first time in our six month old marriage. Whatever should we do?” she whispered in his ear.
Killian felt his breath catch in his chest at the pure lust in his wife’s voice. He lifted the remote and turned off the television. He then turned to her, meeting her eyes. His tongue darted out to lick at his lips and Emma felt herself begin to grow wet at the mere sight.
“Well, love, I believe I can think of a thing or two to occupy ourselves,” he said.
Emma smiled, arching an eyebrow. “Care to make it interesting?”
“We play truth or dare,” she said.
Killian’s brow creased. “I’m afraid I’m not familiar with that game.”
Emma shrugged. “It’s exactly what it sounds like. You can either choose truth or dare. Truth means you have to answer any question truthfully. Dare means you have to accept any challenge.”
Killian offered her a lopsided grin. “Well, you know I love a challenge.”
Emma smiled. “Great,” she said.
She stood up and found her laptop. In minutes, she had printed a sheet of truth questions and dare challenges designed specifically for married couples. She figured this would make it more interesting than producing them themselves. Emma quickly cut them up into strips and then retreated to the kitchen to retrieve two bowls. She returned to the living room and placed the bowls down on the table. She put all of the truth strips in one and the dares in another.
“All set,” she said, turning to her husband.
“Perhaps you should go first since I’ve never played this game before,” he suggested.
Emma nodded. “Okay,” she agreed. “I choose truth,” she said and then pulled a strip out of the bowl.
Emma read the strip aloud. “What is the sweetest thing your spouse has ever done for you?”
Emma thought for a moment, her eyes flitting across Killian’s face. “Hmm, this is hard. You always do sweet things for me.”
Killian smiled and lifted his hand to caress her cheek. “Get used to it, love. There is a lifetime of sweet gestures in your future.”
A smile spread across her lips. “Obviously, big gestures like trading your ship for me are incredibly sweet, but I think it’s the small, everyday things that mean the most to me. I’d have to say all the times you brought me grilled cheese and onion rings. You always know when I’m too busy or preoccupied to remember to eat. The first time you did it showed me how much you truly cared.”
Killian shrugged. “I also know how grumpy you get when you’re hungry. It’s really for the protection of all.”
Emma laughed and gently swatted his arm. “Your turn,” she said.
“Truth,” he said and pulled out a strip. “What was your first impression of your spouse?” he read.
His eyes lifted to his wife’s and a slow grin appeared on his lips.
“Be nice,” she said with a chuckle.
He tilted his head to the side. “So is this before or after you held a knife to my throat and tied me to a tree?”
“Your call,” she replied with a shrug.
He bobbed his head. “Well, when I first laid eyes on you, I knew you were the most beautiful lass in all the realms.”
Emma felt a blush creep into her cheeks.
“And then after you held a knife to my throat and tied me to a tree, I knew you were the strongest and bravest lass I’d ever met. And I wanted nothing more than to get to know you.”
“And know me you did,” she said, bringing her hand to his and squeezing.
She smiled and said, “My turn. Dare.”
Killian waggled his eyebrows as she pulled out a slip.
“Kiss your favourite part of your spouse,” Emma read.
Killian grinned at her, as Emma’s gaze slowly perused her husband’s gorgeous figure.
