Don’t get excited! Fiction Friday isn’t back for good. At least I don’t think it is. But I had a little something in the vault that I thought would work for Marquessa’s challenge this week (click link for details)… so I ripped it from something else and tried to make it work on its own. Maybe it does…
As this week’s prompt comes from the song ‘I Touch Myself’, I’m guessing it’s meant to be more racy, less romantic. But I’m a rebel. And I’m cheating anyway… The prompt is “I would get down on my knees, I would do anything for you.” But I only used the second part… “I would do anything for you.” Yeah… always the rule breaker.
“I wish I didn’t have to leave.” she said, watching her fingers move slowly over his chest. She hated that they had to be apart for three whole months. And she knew he hated it, too.
“I know.” He sighed and kissed her head. ”Can I be selfish for a minute?”
“I don’t want you to go. I want you with me…”
“And I don’t want to go. I want to be with you.” When he heard a tremble in her breath, his arms held her tighter. And when she reached to her face, he knew she was wiping away tears.
“I’m done being selfish now.” He kissed her head again. “Hey… look at me.” But she didn’t. “Honey… I’m going to wait for you.”
When she finally lifted her head from his shoulder, he gently wiped a tear from her cheek. And she repeated his question. “Can I be selfish for a minute?”
“I want you to kiss me again.” She gave him the smile she knew he wanted.
“Honey,” his hand covered her cheek. He lifted his head until his lips reached hers. His hand sank into her hair and he pulled her closer. Their kiss deepened, their mouths tasting each other. After long delicious lingering moments, their lips parted. Again, she smiled for him. He smiled back and ran his thumb sweetly over her cheek. “Anything else?”
She kissed his mouth again. “No, I think I’m finished being selfish.”
“You know you never have to stop, right?” He ran his thumb slowly across her lips. “You can be selfish forever. I would do anything for you…”
“Because you’re perfect…”
