My nose is stuffed up. My face is stiff. My chest hurts.
I am resting where I belong. My head on his shoulder, pressed into his neck. Breathing in his scent. My ass is on fire and I don't want to look. I am at peace. I snuggle into his neck and whisper , "I love you."
His hand cups my still burning bare butt.
"I love you, too", he replies.
Safe once again, I drift off to sleep.
