~ A Morning In Altissia ~ ((Gladio x Fem!Reader))
((Randomly decided to write this. Enjoy! :D ))
The morning sun poured in through the window, embracing everything it touched in a soft, warm light. The sound of soft chirping could be heard from outside. The room became brighter as the sun’s soft touch spilt over the room, across the bed, where sheets were strewn about, pillows out of place.
In the bed resting peacefully were two people. Her hair lazily drooped over the pillows and sheets like a waterfall, some even having slipped down over the edge to hang from the side of the bed. She looked so cosy to be snuggled up among the silk sheets as if she had become one of them. A pair of brown eyes watched her affectionately, memorising every detail. The way the sun caressed her skin, the way her long eyelashes rested gently against her slightly rosy cheeks, the way some of that beautifully coloured silk of hers that was her hair had fallen down over her when she shifted. Watching as the sheets brushed along her soft skin as he longed to.
In this very moment, Gladiolus was truly a happy man at peace. He watched as a soft smile played upon her lips when he had reached over to gently brush the hair out of her face with the back of his fingertips. Like a feather’s touch. He did not wish to wake her…. Perhaps she was having a most wonderful dream. The thought made his heart swell. He selfishly hoped she had been dreaming of him if she was.
Gladio had moved to be closer to her, moving his hand to run along her bare shoulders, her lower half covered gently by the sheets, while she rested on her stomach, embracing the pillows, her beautiful face resting to the side in his direction.
By the Six.. He was certainly a lucky man.
Gladio had thought with a soft smile, his own mess of shaggy long, dark brown hair spilling over his own shoulders, the harsh lines of his tattoo painted along his skin, taking up a good amount of his upper body. He ran his own callused, large hand over his chest, and then along the bed with a relaxed sigh.
Oh, how he could just lay here forever by her side… The sun warming them, the quiet morning making time seem as if it were endless.
His love sleeping peacefully, untouched by all the harsh trials this world had to offer them.Gladio had moved in closer until he carefully pressed himself against her, pulling her into his arms carefully so that she would not be uncomfortable, and closed his eyes.
Burying his face in her hair, he pressed a gentle kiss to her shoulder as she moved to lay on her side, burying her face into his chest with room to breath.
Even still, he felt her warm breath against him, her hands soft and delicate against his firm muscles.
Her hair smelled so nice… Like the flowers of Altissia. That was where they were now staying after all. She had taken a shower last night before they slept. Yet, it also had a hint of the fresh clean smell of the sheets among it. It was a lovely combination.
Kissing along where her neck and shoulder met very delicately, Gladio smiled lovingly, his hands massaging along her back and sides.
Her own unique smell too… It still clung to her skin, and it always became his favourite.
Gladio even loved the soft sigh she made against him just then as the two of them relaxed together.
For everything he was worth, with everything he was and everything he had,
Gladiolus would protect her, and love her always.This he vowed.
