I've Got a War In My Mind
100% chance is that I’m stalking your blog from afar, reading your roleplays, sending you anons, & wishing I could be one of the lucky people who write with you but aM JUST HIDING IN A CORNER TOO AFRAID TO SAY ANYTHING.
Her free hand moved to press against the base of her collarbone, her lips pursing as she was pulled into a neat, quiet hallway. Something about the young witch’s home brought her into a state of peace. She suspected it had something to do with the different arrangements of things throughout the house. Her body tingled with anticipation as she was swiftly pulled toward the next level of tangled, heated passion. Was that even the right word? It didn’t matter. Smiling slyly to herself, she couldn’t help but wonder if any sort of magic would be used in this particular event — not that casual and regular was a problem.
She smiled brightly as Calliope quietly pressed her forehead to her’s. An overwhelming feeling of relief poured into her, her body aching to be as close as was possible. She could feel the witch’s breathing mix with her own. The next words spoken were the key to Marlena’s hidden lock. No longer as shy and worried and scrambled as before, she felt herself push forward. The space between them was quickly closed, the sense of innocence and soft disappearing in an instant. Her fingers laced the edges of Calliope’s jeans, a noise escaping her throat before she could stop it. Her lips paused, parting slowly against the other’s. She wanted nothing more than to prolong the moment for as long as she could, but at the same time she could hardly stop herself from quickly unbuttoning the rest of their clothing — her’s and her partner’s.
“I love you too,” she murmured seconds later — the previous sentence almost forgotten. The words left her lips in a hurry, her breathing picking up the pace as she tensed and went in for another kiss.
Calliope grinned as Marlena pushed against her. She slowly backed them towards her bed. She could hardly believe that she had Marlena, really, tangibly in front of her. Her life had been so sparse without the elf, and now it seemed as warm and fiery as Marlena’s hair. She hummed in satisfaction when she felt the other girl’s hands at her jeans. It was what she wanted, what she needed. To be with the one she loved in the most intimate ways.
She smiled at the quiet noise that came from Marlena, a soft, breathy chuckle escaping her before it was cut off by the lingering kiss. At moments, she wanted everything to happen at once, so that they wouldn’t waste any seconds spent together, for fear of being separated again. And yet, at others, she wanted to luxuriate in everything. The softness of Marlena’s skin underneath her timid fingertips, the persistence in her lips, the electricity—magical or not—between them. Her hands skated over her partner’s back, sliding under the clasp of her bra, thinking it not quite time to get rid of that, considering there were jeans on both of them that needed removed.
Calliope couldn’t wipe the smile off her face, even as she continued to kiss Marlena. Now they were past their simple sentences of great magnitude. She could feel her heart hammering out a harsh staccato, her excited breathing matching the elf’s. She slid her fingers teasingly underneath the top hem on her jeans, softly trailing her fingers all around, before finally sliding them off of the redhead. She straightened up, kissing her cautiously, hoping she was doing everything correctly. All she really knew was what she wanted and needed. And what she wanted and needed was to be as close to Marlena as possible. With no fussy clothing in the way.
Marlena’s back. Everything is okay again. I feel like I can actually breathe again. God, I never told her just how much I loved her before she left. She makes me so happy. The happiest I’ve ever been since leaving America. Probably just the happiest I’ve ever been, period. She’s my comfort, my safe haven. She takes care of me, but doesn’t baby me. She just… loves me.
We were so stupid to take this long to finally be together.
