Alec feels afloat; he rests on something soft, his body engulfed in warmth. The air is humid and still; the only sounds getting through the thick layer of sleepiness are the honking of the cars outside and the puffs of someone’s breathing. Alec rubs his cheek against a pillow, at least he thinks it’s a pillow, and sighs softly. He doesn’t want to open his eyes; he is content to stay submerged in this half-awake, half-asleep state. His brow furrows when he realizes that he doesn’t feel Magnus’ frame against his own though; his mind is fuddled and he inches his eyes open to check on his missing boyfriend.
The sight of smooth, tanned canvas of Magnus’ back welcomes him and his mouth curves into a smile; Magnus must have rolled away from him during the night, trying to get away from his body heat. Alec muses sleepily that summertime might be his worst enemy, taking away his cuddling partner, making him sweat through his gear, making him lazy and unfocused. He shuffles across the sheets slowly, his muscles sore and uncooperative. He lines his body up with Magnus’, throwing his arm around his waist, and rests his forehead against the nape of his neck. Much better, he thinks and closes his eyes, intent on going back to sleep.
So part 4 went out the other day, and I’m glad people enjoyed it. I really didn’t expect many people to actually like this series, but it turned out well. Just want to say thank you for all the support I’ve received.
