A Concept Lost

She's clutching desperately at his collar and there's a primal look in her eyes that makes him shiver with anticipation. One hand shifts slightly to caress his neck, soothing circles across his skin.

His breathing is shallow as he realizes what she intends to do.

She's going to kiss him.

He clamps his eyes shut for a moment and then opens them again to stare deeply into her eyes. He reads trust in them and love. Love. It's a concept almost lost to him after all they've been through but it's there. It's real.

She closes the distance between them.
