favorite THROAM scenes in no particular order→ a kingdom by the sea (book ii, chapter 6)
So after I manage to free my hand with a promise of staying, I take off my shoes, leave them by the bed. Remove my jacket, take off my tie. Don’t think anything of it when I unbuckle my belt, don’t think of how I’ve done this in his presence uncountable times, but this time I pull the belt out of the loops and keep my pants on.
I round the bed because well – he sleeps on the left and I sleep on the right. I know that. Although sometimes we just slept all over each other, no coordination or direction. Still. We have sides.
But I don’t get under the covers with him. No, that I can’t do. So I get on top of them, moving closer to him. I curl my arm securely around his middle and pull him to me, our bodies pressing together. His hand instantly moves to rest over mine, and he exhales softly. “You’re warm.”
I rest my head on the pillow that we share, and I close my eyes, breathe in the scent of his hair. “Bet you anything that you’re warmer.”
He hums in agreement and pushes into my embrace. Goes lax. And at that second, the feeling of being home is overwhelming.
And he does. Probably for the first time in days.
I’m reblogging this again because I love it so fucking much.
Watch me, motherfuckers.
