So here I am, sitting in bed next to the man who changed my life. He's all wrapped up in the blankets, twitching slightly in his left shoulder (the one that got rewired during his surgeries.; His hair is a matted mess spread across both pillows (apparently he was on my side of the bed for a short time last night). And I just heard him do this little shuffling snore that he does when his nose is clogged up from his allergy. Laundry still in the washer and dryer, just reset the dryer (again, damn thing has to run twice to dry anything). The room is a mess, the bathroom needs to be cleaned...
But watching him sleep...occasionally wrapping my arms about him and feeling him breathe and shudder slightly in his dreams, makes me happy in ways I cannot describe. I look at him and realize that I will be waking up to his face for the rest of my life. And I couldn't, wouldn't, CAN'T...have it any other way. There's just something in the way he is, that completes me so very neatly. And believe it or not, this quiet little domestic scene started in a BDSM dungeon.
It was my first night to the Dungeon, my friend had dragged me there to make sure that she had a ride and a friend there, but soon she was gone in hustle of fire-cupping and learning how to throw whips. Leaving me in the dressing room, cowering from the rest of the people. I admit, I am usually a Pinkie Pie, laughing and joking and loud. But that night, I was a total Fluttershy! I couldn't meet anyone's eye and I had trouble speaking up. Then he walked up to me.
Long brown hair, glasses, tall, lean, wearing...traditional Renaissance Scotsman garb? He even had a rapier belted to his side. He had seen the coin pendant about my neck and had to know what I had gotten on it when I had it beaten. (Celtic Pentagram and Zodiac Wheel). He actually made them for his job! We fell into talking about Renaissance Faires (he was actually supposed to be working one the next morning, which is why he was all dolled up) and eventually we made our way into the dungeon. Suddenly, neither of us could speak again. I was looking at the ground, at the ropes, at the people doing fire-cupping...anywhere but at him.
"Would...would you like to play?"
I blushed crimson.
"The couches are quieter, less noise and people. It'll be more comfortable."
I blushed a bit brighter and looked up at him.
"I'll only do what you're comfortable with."
Thought for a few moments. The darkness and heavy metal playing over the speakers made it a little hard to concentrate. I opened my mouth and "Yes." came out. He smiled, took my hand and lead me towards the couches. Three and a half hours of knife and sensation play later, I was a gooey giggly mess and he was a grinning fool. We almost couldn't be separated. Two and a half months later...engaged, living together and with two cats to boot. I couldn't be happier.
Not even if I was offered a Hogwarts letter, a trip to Narnia, real pixie dust or even...all the money in Gringotts bank!
