And then I was falling.
I sat straight up in bed, gasping as my eyes open wide. I must've jolted the bed, as Drocell yawned and sat up, holding me close against his chest, rubbing my back and shoulders and gently pushing my head down into the crease of his neck. I slowly relaxed and shifted back down into a laying position, Droc still holding me to him.
"I love you…" I whispered almost silently.
"I love you too." He whispered in my ear. He smiled at me, one of those crooked smiles that is enough to make your heart melt. I pressed my face back between his pillow and his neck and quickly fell back asleep.
Note from Fool!
I realize this is really super short. I've been working on the next one for a few hours, and it should be a hell of a lot longer. Thanks guys. <3
