I pull off her sundress and sandals, kissing her feet. My mouth moves higher as her legs fall open for me.
“Do you wish for my kisses?” I ask, looking into the green eyes that hold my heart.
“You know I do.” She winks at me, raising her hips in invitation.
“Then you shall have all of them.”
I move my mouth between her legs and kiss her sweet nectar until she climaxes. We’ve been together ten years, and as I sink into her I think about how it’s always special. Every time we connect there is love—love of our bodies, love of our spirits, love of our souls.
She wraps her arms around my neck, and I pull her body flush with mine.
“Stay close,” she whispers, and I obey.
I hold her tight as I thrust in and out, leaving no space between us.
It’s hours later when she’s sated, and I wrap my body around hers. There are no more words, only kisses and light touches as she drifts off to sleep. I hum softly to her, the same tune I sang to our babies. She closes her eyes, and her dark half-moon lashes make her look like a doll, so perfect and sweet as she sleeps on my chest.
Although my life began dark and lonely, I am thankful for it. I would charge down any path that led to the love next to me, that brought me home to the happily ever after we have built. My beauty has taught me many things, but believing in fairy tales was the most important one. She shows me every day that dreams do come true.
