Hi everyone! Still feeling a little icky from my anxiety/panic attack I had the other day, but I have been writing a bit on A Christmas Dream. I have 2500 words typed so far, so it will probably be up in a few days. In the meantime, here is a small snippet for you. I hope you enjoy!
“I love you.” Bella’s voice was reverent as she whispered the words.
A few moments passed between them as he fought the conflicting emotions of thanking whoever was responsible for giving him her, this gift, and the smidgen of doubt that he didn’t deserve her. He closed his eyes, sighing before he opened them and softly replied, “I love you.” He meant each word he spoke and the weight of them carried through his tone.
She smiled against him, tugging him closer. She traced lazy circles on his arm while she thought over the past year. It had been a whirlwind, and it not been easy. But, it was worth it. Damon was worth it, she thought.
They had been through so much in such a short amount of time, and yet here they were still very much in love. Maybe even more so now than when they first met.
Bella lifted her gaze to see that Damon was asleep. He looked so peaceful, so innocent, that it was kind of hard to fathom he was a bad ass vampire who could easily rip your heart out then ask questions later. But he was hers, and she loved that irrational nature of his just as much as she loved his passion for life. The passion he exhibited every time he kissed her, every time he looked at her, every time they made love. He had taught her life was an adventure to be lived, to explore and enjoy. She could never have asked for anyone better.
