"Was it good?" Alex said, as she gently pushed back my hair, and kissed me on the neck.

"Yeah." I smiled, euphoric from our lovemaking. "It was good, Alex. It was wonderful."

"God, I love you so much." she continued to kiss me and fondle my breasts. Clearly, she still had some energy left in her.

I, for one, was not complaining.

Today hadn't been the easiest of days for me, but Alex was making me forget about all of it. My setbacks. My worries. None of those mattered as long as she was here, comforting me. Protecting me.

My skin was ticklish. My body was warm. My mind was still on a sweet, mellow high. I was smiling as I accepted her kisses.

"Ah!" she moaned, as she finally relaxed and wrapped me in her arms. 

"That felt good. That felt so good."

"I'm glad."

"Hmm." she smiled as she continued to caress my hair. "See? If anything's weighing you down, just tell me Jaina. I'll make you feel better just like that."

"I know. This was just one of those days where I somehow forgot I wasn't alone. I lost sight of what I was thankful for. Sorry you had to come all the way over and remind me."

It wasn't as if I'd begged her to leave work early and rush over here. My pride wouldn't have allowed it. But she called me. She checked up on me, and saw through the front I was putting up. By the time she made it back home, I didn't see the point of hiding it anymore.

"Hey," she said, cupping my face in her hands. "You love me, right?"

"Of course I do."

"Then I need no other reason to protect you. To comfort you. You can always lean on me. No conditions."

"Yeah." I smiled. "No conditions."

"You need any more help from me? I could stick around, you know? Maybe even use some of my connections to take the pressure off you."

"I appreciate the offer, but it won't be necessary. It was all in my head, Alex. Sometimes I still lose it, you know? Sometimes I can't keep it together."

"Then consider this a safe space for yourself." she kissed me again. "RIght here with me, you can be as broken as you need to be. And I'll stay right here, watching over you, until you've put yourself back together."

"Yeah, that'd be nice, Alex. Just stay with me, for some time."

"Okay." she smiled as I wrapped my arms around her. Here, I could be small. Here, I could be needy. And she'd bear it all for me.

Like she had done so many times already.
