Fic Teaser: Sunday, The Early Hours
Since this beastie is coming out far longer than expected (it’ll be over 6,000 words at this rate) I thought I’d give you all a preview in case it takes much longer.
Time of Day series; sequel to ‘Saturday Midnight’
Suddenly, she was pushing him away by his shoulders, “Bedroom,” she gasped, “We have all night.”
He nodded, swallowing hard around the idea of having her in his bed. They’d never even gone upstairs before: the stairs and kitchen and sofa, even the arm chair and the dining room table, had all been well employed. He’d never lead her upstairs.
But he’d invited her here, so this was how it would go.
He took her hand - he never held her hand, never, but it was warm and soft and deceptively small and fragile in his - and she took her bag over her other arm. They climbed the stairs together, not speaking. They never seemed to speak anymore.
Once, their relationship had been built on words, insubstantial and monumental. Now they were all action, hurried movements to remove clothing and have skin against skin, and words only got in the way. Words only made it real.
She went into his room ahead of him, and he followed, closing the door behind them once more. He gave her a moment to look around - the room was cluttered as was every other in his home, but where the rest was full of useless trinkets and ‘comforts’, this one room was free from Regina’s ironies.
Here he had the cup, the one she chipped in another life, and the leather football he was too afraid to display in the shop. Here he had the things from the Dark Castle that he considered precious, along with all his books.
She’d read half of them: she had no idea.
