Banter in the bedroom

The cares of the world waft away like the vague images of a forgotten dream when he climbs into bed beside me. And my comfort is found in the warmth of a slight up-curved smile relaxing across an unshaven face tickling me with a hundred kisses as I squeal to his delight. A calloused hand urges the small of my back gently forward as I fuss in mock protest of his boyish game. His eyes gleam indulgently making my heart swell with such regard I choke back joyful tears and throw my arms possessively around him. With a knowing sigh he draws me in, cradling me in his capable arms sworn to provide and protect. Then he buries his face in my copper-red hair breathing its henna scent, and holding me tight, he whispers my name, swearing love that will never relent.
