Soul Fusion - Chapter 1 - Passion

Sometime during the dead of night, Richard woke up, hearing a startling noise. Furrowing his brow, he shifted in bed, looping his arms around Kahlan's waist and pulling her to him. She murmured pleasantly and wiggled her bottom, making him groan slightly. Easing over her, he brushed her long lush hair away from her supple neck and began kissing it, forgetting about the noise that had woke him. Kahlan's soft and supple body was awakening other things in him, things that had still not yet been sated by the night's previous activities.

"Mmm," Kahlan hummed softly. "That feels nice, Richard."

He grinned against her neck, and moved his hand over her shoulder to cup her breast in his hand, giving it a squeeze, which managed to coax a moan from his beloved's lips. Richard continued to nibble playfully at her neck as he skimmed his hand down from her breasts to run down her stomach, seeking out that special place that made her squirm with delight. Kahlan let out a shuddering breath and her whole body quivered when he found the spot.

"Spirits, Richard!" Kahlan gasped in a breathy voice, thick and heavy with pleasure, as he increased the pressure over her most sensitive of places.

Richard smirked against her neck and Kahlan shifted her head to gaze back at him as he pulled her close, pressing his firm arousal up against the soft flesh of her bottom. Her bright blue eyes met his with a passion that could destroy worlds. Unable to control himself, he pushed forward and grabbed her lips in his, kissing her with a fierceness that surprised even himself. Kahlan let out a startled gasp as he shoved his tongue past her parted lips, but she melted into him, her body turning while he lips stayed locked on his.

Backing away, he took in a deep gulp of air and looked into her eyes, seeing her smiling back at him. "Stop the teasing, Richard," Kahlan purred against his lips. "Either make love to me, or go back to sleep."

Richard let out a low groan as she bucked her hips against his groin. His hands moved with lightning speed and he gripped her legs, pulling them apart, as he roughly rolled over her, pinning her between him and the mattress. Kahlan let out a giggle and clawed at his hair as he began running his lips across her breasts, paying equal time to both. Richard kissed his way up to her shoulder and throat, then to her jawbone before capturing her lips, resting himself between her inviting legs.

"Oh, spirits, Richard… yes," Kahlan moaned into his mouth, her hands still clawing at his hair.

Richard ran a hand down her side, grabbing her squirming hips to hold them steady. He bucked his hips and without any preamble entered her already moist center. Kahlan let out a lusty scream and rolled her hips up to meet his, riving in ecstasy.

"Oh, spirits… YES!" she moaned into his mouth as they devoured each other, going harder and rougher than either had before.

Kahlan wrapped her legs around his middle, pulling him deeper into her. Richard groaned as he felt her clench around him with each powerful thrusts. Spirits, he wasn't going to last that long if they kept this up. He moved his hand to grab her breast, while the other worked its way between them to stimulate her most sensitive spot, coaxing a heavy moan out of her, as he wanted her to come with him.

"Fast… harder…!" Kahlan gasped through pants.

Richard did his best to obey the commands of his confessor… his beloved wife. Bringing her joy and happiness was one of his goals in life. And seeing the expression of complete and utter bliss on her face as she released was also high on that list. He moved his hand over her special place with equally vigor and ferocity as he bucked his hips against hers. Kahlan seized him and threw her head back, screaming loudly as he felt her come. Richard groaned and lowered his head against her shoulder, releasing at the same time.

He kissed her neck, sucking on the supple flesh he found there. "I love you," he moaned into her ear as they both collapsed from the intensity of it. Kahlan held him in her arms, holding his quaking body to hers, running her hands down the planes of his back muscles.

"I love you, too, my Richard," she whispered back, still slightly trembling from the intensity of her release. "You know, our souls must be one, because we certainly do move as one when we make love."

Richard chuckled, giving a light nod, agreeing with his love. He shifted above her, not wanting to crush her with his weight. Kahlan smiled up at him, and her eyes sparkled. He let out a breath. The fire that burned between them could consume whole towns. Slipping off of her, he collapsed on the bed beside her, as she pulled his head to her chest, resting it over one of her breasts. He let out a soft laughed as he reached up and caressed her other breast, teasing the nipple.

"Tomorrow, I'm going to have to share these with Ashley and Sanya," he chuckled.

Kahlan hummed. "Ashley has gone to the formula mixture that Darla made," she said, rubbing his back with her hand. "So, you just have Sanya to share with, that is assume we have not created another confessor already!" She laughed lightly and he grinned, filling her chest shake under his cheek.

Richard turned his head and kissed her breast, and captured her nipple in his lips and sucked it until it was stiff. Her hand came up and she ran her fingers through his hair, moaning softly. He released her nipple and looked up at her, his eyes fogging. Kahlan grinned back at him, seeming to bask in the glowing desire reflecting in his eyes.

"Let us try this again," he said, shifting over her and settling between her legs, as she opened for him. He placed a hand on her face, and brushed some strands of raven black hair away from her brow. "And this time," he murmured as he brought his lips within inches of hers, "let's take it slow and steady… I want to feel your warmth around me for longer… much longer."

Kahlan tilted her head ever so slightly and looked up at him, her eyes glinting with a devilish kind of mischief. "I have a better plan," she said, pushing her hips up to meet his, causing his growing arousal to pick up the pace, and a low throaty groan to escape his lips. Kahlan smirked, pleased with the response. "Take me… take me hard and fast. I want to be bedridden for at least a day after you're through." She paused and hitched up an eyebrow. "If you think you're incapable of that, I'm sure I can find someone who is."

"Oh, I'm more than capable, Kahlan," he said, shifting over her, pressing his heated arousal up against her inner thigh, smirking when she jumped at the strength of it. Her smirked grew wider and her eyes seemed on fire.

"Well, are you going to do something or are you just going to talk?" Kahlan jested at him, running her hands down his back until she was gripping his backside.

Richard cocked his head and grinned at her. "Oh, prepared to have your world rocked, Kahlan," he brought his hands up and grabbed her head, shoving his mouth against her opened lips, cutting off whatever witty quip she had been intent on throwing back at him. He felt Kahlan relax and go numb under his kiss, and he rested his knee between her legs, pushing them further apart as he made ready to make good on his promise.
