She lay on her back, staring up at the stars. They were clear white pinpoints on this summer night. She felt his arm go over her stomach, gently pinning her to the ground. She had known this moment would come. Had known ever since she'd first seen him. And now that it was here, her heart raced with excitement.
She reached up and stroked his face. He turned and kissed the palm of her hand. Shivers went through her at the touch of his lips. When he paused, she moved her hand up, up to his forehead and dared to touch the lock of hair that dangled there. "I have been wanting to do that for a long time," she whispered.
He kissed her then, and she knew he wanted to do more than that. He leaned over her, putting more of his weight on her now. She pulled his head down and they kissed, his lips warm on hers. She sighed happily, and her toes curled. His skin felt smooth and warm. She ran a hand down one of his arms, over the black tattoo of the raven.
