I realized I didn't post the nominated drabble on my journal yet ...one of these days I'm going to go though my stuff and post the few things I posted elsewhere (including haiku and such...) here too. Even if most people on my flist have read it already, it feels...more complete, somehow.
And I'm starting with this.
The double drabble was written for sb_fag_ends
. It was inspired by the wonderful banner nmcil12
posted over at Seasonal Spuffy: http://seasonal-spuffy.livejournal.com/562061.html
. Go have a look at it if you haven't already.
Many thanks to the lovely red_satin_doll
who beta read it, despite still being half sick.
Title: see me feel me/ touch me heal me
Prompt: Wishful Thinking
Setting: BtVS s6, around DMP
Length: 200 words (plus titles)see me feel me
Her eyes are closed.
He presses a kiss right beside one, a silent plea to open them, but she turns her head. Striving away from him, always away, with every part she doesn’t need connected to him.
At the same time she clamps him with her legs, hard, punishing him instantly for this audacity, making unmistakably clear which part of him she’s here for. Not his lips.
Not on her face at least.
He only thinks her name, softly, tenderly. Needing to be closer to her, but not daring to say it.
He wishes she would see him.touch me heal me
She can almost hear him say her name, the same tenderness in his voice that she feels in his hands on her body. She tries to flee from it, to move away from him.
Can’t though. Can’t afford to leave this behind. This brief connection to the world, this brief semblance of life
His kiss beside her eye burns into her, and she feels tears welling up behind her lids. Can’t shed them, of course. Can’t open her eyes. He already knows too much.
Because however she tries to hide, he always sees her.
She’s afraid she could see him too.
