Chapter 19 Rest

  • I climbed over her but froze on top of her. Looking down at her I couldn’t help but want her, to need her. I calmed myself and the voice whispered that she was ours. There was no need to rush, no need to do everything tonight. I had her, she was safe for a few more years. We would be okay, for now, we were okay. I stepped over her and lay by her side. My face near her bosom, I lifted my chin to look up at her. My arm slung over her belly. This was it. I’d gotten it, I’d gotten her. I swallowed as I thought about me two years ago. I didn’t know what I wanted. I thought I was okay by myself. I thought that a life of solitude was what I wanted. How wrong I had been. Everything changed after I saw her. My life, my world gravitated toward her. She sighed and my gaze traveled over her features for pain or distress. I was met with a smile as it pulled at the corner of her lip. Her eyes fluttered closed and she turned towards my warmth. I was met with her breasts as they pushed against my face. Goddess, I was being tested, wasn’t I? I took a deep breath and wrapped my arms around her. I was not going to break tonight. Tonight, I would savor the time with her, I would savor her words, her presence. Taking her would come another night, another time. I wasn’t in a rush.
  • I don’t know when it happened but I fell asleep. I looked toward the window, the sun was high in the sky and the room was lit up. Next, I looked towards the door. It was bolted still. I let out a breath of relief and stood to my feet. I needed to leave. I needed to get out of here before it was too late. People would be up and working now. It was risky leaving at this time. Anyone could spot me climbing down from her window. I’d be in trouble but so would she. Hell, I might be beaten to death if that ever happened, if we were ever caught. I looked down at her one more time. She looked beautiful under the glow of the sun. I leaned down and kissed her cheek. If I didn’t leave now, I wouldn’t be able to leave and we’d be caught. Grudgingly, I got to my feet and tore my eyes from her. Last night, I had walked through her door, and today, I was climbing out the window. I laughed. I threw my leg over the ledge and looked back at her. She shivered at my absence and I wished I could go back and hold her but I couldn’t. I turned from her and my gaze traveled over the field, the ground, the surrounding area. Not a soul in sight. I let out a breath of relief and slowly began my descent. I hooked my foot into a crevice and lowered myself as I held onto the edge. When my other foot had a firm hold, I searched for the crack where my hands belonged. When I found it, I started to climb down. I’d been doing this for two years. I could climb down the packhouse wall without looking. My feet and my hands knew where to go. Before I knew it, my feet touched solid ground. I dusted my hands and clothes off before turning and heading towards the fields. My trek consisted of me walking through the field to the other side. Mitch’s home wasn’t far after. Mavy would be expecting breakfast and I wasn’t going to disappoint her.
