Still Here (for the weekly prompt of Tomorrow)

Check out the prompt here!

His hand brushed her cheek as she gazed at him with wide eyes of longing. The bedding covered their bodies from the chill of the morning air. She scooted in closer to cuddle his larger frame. He didn’t know how he was so lucky to be graced with such an angel as her. They just sat there gazing into the other’s eyes, drifting on a river of pleasant thoughts and desires. She whispered in a coy voice, “Oh love, please don’t ever leave me.”
“Leave you? Why would I do that?” He asked.

“So many people in my life have left me. I don’t think I could handle if you too left me.” She said placing her head next to his; he could feel her warm breath on his shoulder.

He gave a laugh and she lifted her head and glared at him. She clutched the sheets in her hand covering herself as she grabbed a spare pillow and hit him.

“Owe!” He said in mock pain.

“I’m being serious you twat. What if tomorrow you decided to just take off?”

He pulled her over and kissed her fully on her luscious lips. She tried to resist at first but soon melted and returned the kiss. They slowly pulled apart. He explained his moment of mirth, “Oh gorgeous, I could never leave you. You just reminded me of that part from Camelot.”

“Which part?” She asked.

He began to sing in his horrible off key voice, “If ever I would leave you, it wouldn’t be in summer-”

She interrupted with her beautiful voice, “Seeing you in summer, I never would.”

“I’m glad one of us can sing.” He said with that smirk on his face. She hit him with the pillow again and they both laughed and fell back into bed, gazing at each other.

She asked with her long eye lashes fluttering, “So does that make you Lancelot and me Guinevere?”

He looked at her and said in a solemn tone, “Gorgeous, I would fight for you, die for you but more importantly live for you. I will never leave you.”

“I love you,” She said.

He embraced her and gave her another kiss. After they managed to pull apart he whispered to her, “Tomorrow will come and I will still be here, loving you.”

  1. Loved it, especially the Lancelot & Guinevere links. It read like an updated version of something much older, great little story 🙂

  2. A very sweet, romantic tale. An endearing read. 🙂

  3. Very nice vignette. I can identify with the poor singing voice. I once sang a love song and twenty cats showed up for handout.

  4. I’m sure the poor singing voice is a modest admission of guilt. Loved it.

  5. Nice job. Shot to the emotions right off the bat and rolled through the whole thing.

  6. Awww… you old softy! Great story – and yes, I clicked on the clicky thing. It’s kind of like when you tell someone not to do something, you know they are going to do it! Caught me ! 😀

  7. Great story GE. Makes me remember being young and in love. Nobody ever sang to me though. Maybe I am lucky that way.

  8. Sweet story, GE! It reminds me of my (very) early days with my husband before he was my husband 😉 He couldn’t sing either, but neither can I!
