He looked so comfortable, lovable
 She excitedly jumped into his lap
 Arms wrapping around the back of his neck
Her face burrowed into the space below his ear
Breathing him in
His arms closed around her
Hands to the small of her back
Fingertips finding, soothing
His lips caressed her brow
Easing her confused mind
Somehow his flesh was real
No longer foreign
Words drifting into her ear
Sighs caught without the distance
Her relief was palpable in the air
Surrounding everything it touched
Her limbs melting into
His body accepting
The hair at his nape
Swirled through her fingers
The solace she sought..
