Her eyes widened. I assumed in alarm, but who the hell knew what was going on in her stubborn head. I took the coffee cup from her hand and rested it on the grass next to mine. I leaned in toward her slowly. Her eyes remained steady on mine. Just as I was so close I could feel her warm erratic breath on my face, her hand landed on my chest.
“What are you doing?” she whispered.
Maintaining eye contact I smiled, reached out, held the back of her head and pulled her closer still. “What I should have done ten years ago.” ~ Preston, A Perfect Moment
I smiled down at her, hoping that my voice and face would make it clear how honest I was being with her. “Now, we have fun. We make love. We tell our family.” She grimaced slightly at that, but I continued, “You learn to trust me.” She made to speak, but I put my finger on her lips. “I mean really trust. I know you trust me as your friend, but I need you to trust me with your heart.” My words had her smiling and her eyes glistening. I kissed her lightly on the lips. “Then, I plan for us to spend the rest of our lives together, having you in my bed whenever I want and having fun making babies.” I expected to blanch as my words formed. Me, not her. While I’d always loved her, doted on her, I’d never considered having a family. I was too young for shit like that, but hell, with El now in my arms, all I could think about was taking her bare and hoping to hell to have some of my swimmers take, and have our baby growing in her beautiful stomach. ~ Preston, A Perfect Moment
