“It is spring, why is it so cold?” Cora asked.
I pressed against her back and slipped my arms around her shoulders, inhaling all the scents mingling together that were her. “Cora darling, it’s the first week of spring, as in closer to winter than summer. So,” I put my hands on her shoulders and turned her around, “I’m taking advantage of every chilly moment I can.” I kissed her gently. She had lips meant for that. Gentleness, not the macho movie kisses that bruised, although, there were moments for that as well. My eyes flared at the thought of last night.
Her nails softly scratched my shirt, sending electricity through my chest and beyond. “Mhmm. Do I look like I am complaining?” Her eyes almost closed and lips turned up at the corners, she knew I loved that look. I had started something and she meant for me to follow through to the finish.
I laughed and felt the vibrations in my chest. Her fingers increased their pressure. “No, and you would complain if you didn’t like it.”
“You got that right, bub.” Her emphatic nod of the head made her silky hair shimmer and slide across her cheeks. “And you are not complaining either.”
“Never,” I said.
“Even if you hated what I was doing?”
I brushed hair away from her face with my fingers. “Even then . . . maybe . . . well not really.” I smiled.
“Maybe I’m a witch, a wizard, and have you under a spell.” Her hands slid down and around my waist.
“In a way, I guess you are. There’s just some magic in truth and honesty and openness.” I squeezed her to me.
“Yep.” She leaned her head and shoulders back. “Well, honesty with respect thrown in. Like, if you made fun of my fondness for egg sandwiches I might not be so forgiving.”
I nodded. “I would never do that. I like them too. Besides, real magic in relationships means an absence of judgment of others, and that includes an obsession with egg sandwiches.”
“Good.” She rested her cheek against my chest.
“Speaking of egg sandwiches…” My hands began to drift.
“What about them?”
“Glenn, we just ate.”
“I didn’t say anything about food.”
Cora squealed as my hands stopped drifting.
