As my eyes open and adjusts to the sun pouring in through the open window. I blink and roll onto my back gazing up at the ceiling. I breathe out and sit up my head spinning. I was never a morning person, but knowing hes here makes the morning not so terrible. I rest my head on my knees and turn my head sideways, my eyes landing on his gorgeous face. His eyes closed and his jagged black hair falling messily over his face. His lips parted slightly and his chest rising steadily.
I roll out of bed and my bare feet hit the floor with a light thump. I find my bra discarded on the floor and pull it on. My silk shorts are discarded next to his blue shirt on the chair. I slip into them and walk out onto the balcony and rest my elbows onto the banister. Feeling the warm breeze caress my face. My hair whipping out behind my body like a golden wave. I cross my legs at the ankles and bite my lip, fighting a smile. Suddenly strong arms snake there way around my waist and I inhale sharply. Warm breathe tickles my ear and I shiver.
Sleep well, love?
I turn in his arms and answer him with a kiss. I feel him smile against my lips. Feeling when he pulls away and places a searing kiss against my neck I sigh in pleasure. His thumb strokes down and over my bare ribcage and down to the swell of my hips.
I love you, Baby.
Hearing those perfect words from his perfect lips make my insides dance. My heartbeat increase.
I love you more.
I tell him. My brown eyes sparkling. I feel him nibble lightly on my lower lip. His grey-blue eyes flashing something dangerous. A sultry smile plays on his lips and I look down feeling the familiar splash of crimson spreading over my cheeks and down my neck.
You place two fingers under my chin and tilt my face up. My eyes meet yours and you touch your fingers to my lips. Stroking softly.
May I kiss you, lovely?
Of course you may.
As he leans in to press his lips to mine I allow my eyelids to flutter closed, but before I do my eyes catch the sunlight reflecting off of the silver band on his ring finger.
He's yours now Chelsea. Yours forever. To love and to cherish. The familiar words echoing in the back of my mind. Lips meeting and tongues intertwining.
This is what love should be.
