Welcome back to another visit with the Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop for anyone who likes to write. Skipping forward to the end of the scene I started sharing last week. I think we all knew where that was heading. 😉 The ending of a sweet moment between them.
When we were both spent, I rested my head on his chest. His fingers drifted through my hair, then he pressed a kiss to the top of my head. “Will you sleep now?”
“Trying,” I said, already drifting off.
“Good,” he said, his hand resting against the back of my neck. “I love you, Gavin. Everything will work out.”
Devil had never been the optimistic type, so I knew he said it for my benefit. I just really wished I could believe it was true. “Love you, too.”
Is this the calm before the storm? Will things really work out? Or will there be some bad trouble coming?
