11 "no one will ever believe us"
THIS SOMEHOW CAME OUT SMUTTY OOOOPPPPPS
11. “no one will ever believe us”
There’s a corridor where they go to make out.
After a particularly stressful mission, or a painfully close escape, or a brush with death, they convene in the corridor by unspoken agreement. It’s locked most of the time, and no one else knows where it is. It’s a place for secrets.
Shiro’s waiting for her when she pushes through the door and closes it carefully behind her.
“That was close,” he whispers.
He takes her hand and pulls her towards him. Not roughly but… not gently, either. She understands his urgency all too well.
“I thought that Galra ship had ended you for sure,” she breathes.
His arm snakes around her waist. Her hand brushes the short hair at the nape of his neck, and he touches his forehead to hers.
“I thought that blast had taken you out,” he whispers back. There’s a hitch in his throat that crushes her heart.
She pulls away far enough to look him in the eye.
“I’m here,” she murmurs. “I’m alive. We made it.”
He kisses her, desperate and hungry, and she groans in the back of her throat as she parts her lips and feels his tongue brush hers. It’s the only way either of them can believe they’re still alive. They’re surviving out there, but here - in the corridor - here’s where they’re living.
Shiro bites at her lip, and then without warning he lifts her up and wraps her legs around his waist. Her back hits the wall, and she clings to him like a lifeline. His lips move down her neck like a line of fire, and she’s living, at last…
She flings an arm out to steady herself, and hears a crash.
Shiro stops. He looks at her.
“What was that?” he asks. His voice is thick and heavy, and it sends a tingle down her spine.
They both look to where her hand has crashed into a lamp and knocked it off the wall.
“Sometimes I forget how strong I am,” she whispers, and giggles.
Shiro laughs too, and nuzzles into her neck.
“Blame it on Coran?” he murmurs, his lips brushing her skin.
“No one will ever believe us,” she whispers. Not that she cares.
OH LOOK I WROTE SHIRO PUSHING ALLURA AGAINST A WALL
