His heartbeat was another universe. Steady and strong, it held me captive in his web of love. Passion pounded through his veins as I rested a hand on his strong chest, the caramel skin underneath warm and soft. His breathing kissed my face as he edged impossibly close, to the extent that I could count the hairs in his eyebrows if I wanted to. "I just wanna lay next to you for a while," his serene, quiet voice blessed my ears. My small frame tired, I just looked up at him with curious eyes, a genuine smile on my face nonetheless. His eyes were a deep chocolate shade of brown, ethereal in their beauty, shining brighter than a thousand suns, and they held the intensity of a thousand years of love. The beautiful 28 year-old in front of me tenderly stroked my cheek with the back of his hand, caressing my soul with him, mumbling, "You look so beautiful tonight." Shyly glancing down, I brought the covers up to our chins in modesty and shyness. Feeling my cheeks heat up, two slender fingers lifted my chin up. "Your eyes are so lovely," he cooed, brushing his fingers against the sides of them, peering and gazing deep into my very soul. Sighing happily, he softly kissed my lips with such frail and sweet love that seemed eternal, just like the beginning of our night. "Your mouth is so sweet," he mumbled as his warm breath tickled my nose. He let his hands wander down my bare side, the skin tingling after, warming me up as he confessed in a small voice, almost sad, "A lot of people misunderstand me. That's cause they don't know me at all." I preferred to stay silent and just listen to the words lingering in the atmosphere. "I just wanna touch you," he breathed out, his fingers coming in contact with my bare stomach, "And hold you," his voice got quieter as he slid his other arm to embrace me from my lower back. His eyes were so powerful when he looked up, his emotions an underlying whirlpool, "I need you," he seemed to beg in a whisper, "God, I need you," his whisper was now thick with utter desperation, as his caresses and touches grew smoother, his lips faintly touching my skin here and there. "I love you so much," his whisper cried out, as I was stunned.
