Eve slept for what seemed like an eternity. Stian had woken before her, and left her in bed. After the previous nights experience, she deserved to rest as long as she desired. He spent his time cleaning the house, and would check in on her every half hour or so, he was a little nervous about her reaction to what had happened to her.
Her eyes opened and looked towards the clock. It was four o'clock in the afternoon, the door creaked open and Stian peered in at her. She looked over towards the door and looked him in the eyes. She was expressionless, and he walked towards her, taking a seat on the bed beside her. She pulled the blankets off of her, revealing her body. She was bruised, beaten, and still covered in all the evidence of their sexual exploration. She took her hand and ran it down his cheek without saying a word, her eyes stayed connected with his. His heart was racing a little, for the first time since they had met he couldn't gage what she was feeling inside. She seemed frail and timid, unlike she had in the past, but he couldn't pin point her actual emotions.
She took his hand and placed it on her chest over her heart, he could feel it beating beneath his palm. She closed her eyes and just held it there, letting him feel the rhythm of it pound beneath her soft skin.
"Eve.." he began. She put her fingertips to his lips to quiet
him, but still didn't speak. The gesture made him uncomfortable,
he feared perhaps he had taken her too far and that she felt
regret for what had happened. He had had a previous submissive
whom he had taken to the point of using their safe word, and she
had left him. She couldn't handle how she felt afterwards, and
couldn't look at him in the same way. His biggest fear was that
this would happen to Eve, and he couldn't bear to lose her. She
meant too much to him. She pushed herself up so she was sitting
across from him, she still kept his hand over her heart and
looked at him. She leaned in and delicately kissed him on his
"I am giving this to you" she said, as she pressed his hand harder against her chest. He felt her heart beat faster as the words escaped her. "You own my heart, my body and my soul". His bottom lip quivered slightly, the movement was so small, no one could see it, but he felt it. Those were the words he had wanted to hear. "You have filled the void I have have been seeking to close my entire life" she took a moment to breathe as a tear fell from her. "I want to live my life with you, here, for as long as you'll have me. I can get a job here, I can move my life here, I want to." He embraced her, and allowed a single tear to fall down his face. He could never express to her what he was feeling at that moment.
"I want you always and forever" he managed to breathe into her ear. He kissed her on her lips, the two of them melted into one another as their lips and tongues danced together. The two of them stayed there, embracing and looking into one another for a little over an hour. Soon they got into the shower together, he took his time washing her body and tending to her wounds. He spent the rest of the evening pampering her in every way he knew how. A woman had never made him happier in his life.
