Belleeza had another nightmare last night. Nicholai’s death still haunts her. I heard her cry out from her room. I rushed to her but I didn’t hear her footsteps until I almost literally ran into her. She was half asleep and wearing only a tight little tank top. My God she was beautiful. There were fresh tears drying against her cheek. I closed the distance between us and kissed her tears away. I scooped her up in my arms and she nuzzled her face into my neck, soft curls danced against my cheek. Smooth tan legs rubbed against my naked chest as she shivered in my arms. Cold chills ran down her entire body and despite the situation, despite how selfish it felt…my body filled with heat as I looked at her gorgeous face. Long dark hair fell beside succulent breasts—tight nipples pressed against her thin shirt. She was stunning and she used to be mine but she wasn’t anymore…I lost her.
I reached my bed and tucked her in pulling the covers around her. She sighed when I kissed her head. I walked around to the other side of the bed. She wasn’t mine anymore—I would sleep with my back to her and give her as much space as she needed as long as she needed it. As soon as I settled into the bed she turned toward me and scooted as close as possible. Her legs nudged mine and her arm pulled at my waist. I chuckled and gave into what I knew she wanted…snuggles. As soon as I turned to face her she wormed herself in as close as she could get and fell into a peaceful sleep. “I love you,” I whispered. With her warm breath against my chest and our legs tangled together in the sheets…I drifted to sleep.
