WeWriWa: “For My Benefit”

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?

  1. Characters deserve a few moments of peace and love like this.

  2. Ah, lovely. But why doesn’t Hawk believe him? But of course, there’s trouble coming. 🙂

  4. At least he doesn’t doubt the love 🙂 Enjoyed the excerpt – these are two of my favorite characters.

  5. They deserved this moment–and it was a sweet scene. If only life were perfect…

    I like that he used his name “Gavin”, not his nickname. I think it adds a level of sincerity and intimacy to the scene.

  6. Sweet moment, but our job as evil authors is to make sure it doesn’t last. Sigh. Lovely snippet.

  7. Very sweet snippet. It’s nice to enjoy a quiet moment.

  8. There’s nothing as reassuring as the arms of the one you love.

    So poignant and tender yet they both feel it won’t last while they savor the moment. Sigh.
