- 10: Neck Kiss
Her arms were warm, sure around him as she stood behind him, holding him in a firm embrace, though not anywhere near as tightly as her heart truly wanted. It had felt like an eternity… but still, she knew his scent, she knew the feel of his skin beneath her cheek as she rested her head against his shoulder. She still knew him, and she doubted there would ever be a time when she wouldn’t. She turned her head just so, letting out a soft, comfortable sigh as she rested a small, but sincere kiss to his pulse point - which she mapped out just as easily as she had been able to, in their times before. “Oh, how I’ve missed you…”
Tightening the embrace as she pressed her lips to his neck, Connor sighed happily, immediately taken back to the times in which the she wolf was in his arms, the many nights where she left her mark on not only his body, but his heart as well. ”I…have missed you as well,” he whispered into her ear, nuzzling into her cheek. ”You were…never far from my mind while I was out there…I even..pined for your touch on some nights and I could not wait for this battle to be over. I feel as if…it even fueled me to finish it faster so that I could return to you.”
His words melted her heart, though she wondered just how much more it possibly could have been, having already been reunited with her beloved warrior. She nuzzled him back in beastly affection, huffing soft breath against his strong jawline, and she relaxed in his hold, feeling truly safe, protected, cherished in the sanctity of his arms. “I’m so happy to hear you say that,” she murmured, letting her hands trail up and caress through his hair, just behind his ears. “I was so afraid… I was afraid the battle would change you. Make you… forget… But I can see… you only grew stronger. Not only in your body, but your heart too… I missed the sound of it so much. But I missed having you in my arms even more… And I’m so happy I can have both now.” She tipped her head back just enough, enough so that they had to truly face each other, so that she could let her lips touch upon his in a much-deserved, long-awaited kiss, one that truly stole her breath away as her fingers curled softly in his hair.
