As Nora turned the key in the lock to their apartment, she still wasn’t sure she was ready to deal with what was to come, but she knew she had to. She would have to sooner or later, but as she opened the door, the smell of bleach and other cleaning products hit her nose, she hadn’t lived with Nikki very long, but she knew she was upset. As she locked the door and put her purse and keys down she heard the water splash around. She knew exactly where Nikki was. So she slowly walked towards the door, her anger had subsided but her fear was still there. But now it was also fear that of what would happen if her parents didn’t accept her and Nikki leaving to save her. She knew losing all of them would break her. She entered the bathroom as quietly as possible, she saw Nikki’s eyes were closed and she was still astonished at how beautiful the woman she loved was. She slowly moved a lose hair away from her face and lightly caressed the right side of Nikki’s face.
“I’m sorry Nora.” Nikki said as she leaned into Nora’s touch, she didn’t even need to open her eyes to see who it was.
“So am I, but we’ll figure this out tomorrow. Tonight I just want to sleep and have everything else be dealt with tomorrow.” Nora said as she moved to the sink to brush her teeth and get ready for bed. In the corner of her eye she could see Nikki getting out of the tub, putting a towel around her naked and wet body, and then slowly walk up behind Nora. She felt the kiss she placed on the back of her neck.
“Ok.” Nikki said as she moved to the bedroom to get ready for bed, a part of herself was able to breathe again, knowing that all of the problems that could fill their future would have no effect on them tonight. And for now that was enough. As she settled herself in bed, she felt it sink a little when Nora got in. She was already on her left side and waited for Nora, feeling her put an arm over the middle of her body, pulling herself closer to Nikki. Nikki put her hand over Nora’s and moved it up so that it could be right above her heart.
The sunlight hit Nikki’s face as she slowly began to wake up, she felt Nora’s back close to hers, so she slowly turned and moved towards Nora and put her arm over Nora. She felt Nora turn and face her. It was still fairly dark in the room, but Nikki could see the tears streaks that ran down her face. She had no idea what to say, so she slowly leaned forward and kissed them away.
Nora felt Nikki kiss her tears away and felt that she needed more than that, so she moved her hand to Nikki’s hip and moved her lips towards Nora’s as she pulled her forward for a kiss. She put all the emotions she was feeling into it, and slowly rolled onto her back so that Nikki would be on top, she didn’t know how far this would go, but she wanted to feel something else, anything else then what she was currently feeling. She knew nothing was strong enough but this.
Nikki wasn’t sure if this is what Nora really needed right now but she could feel how much she wanted this. So Nikki put one hand by the side of Nora’s face and the other slowly descended down her body past her silk pants that she wore to bed. She pushed two fingers slowly and easily into her lover’s warm center. Nora’s head moved to the side, breaking there kiss while a moaned escaped her lips. Nikki slowly kissed her way down the side of Nora’s neck as she kept a steady and deep pace with her fingers. She felt Nora head turn back and slowly move so that she could capture Nikki’s lips again.
Nora was struggling with keeping her full attention on the kiss. She felt Nikki within her, filling her and overloading her senses. She was feeling so much and all of it was almost too much, but she needed it all. And she knew that Nikki understood without having to say a word.
She felt Nora’s body begin to tense so she moved her hand up lightly to caress her eyes, to signal that she wanted them open for as long as they could be. She looked down in to dark green eyes, heavy with emotion. She had no idea what to say but she could feel as if Nora was reading her thoughts through her eyes. ‘I love you.’
‘I don’t want to have to face this.’ Nora’s eyes said, the fear breaking through again and mixing with the want and passion of the moment.
‘I know, but you don’t have to be alone, I’m right here.’ Nikki’s eyes practically said, full of understanding and love.
Nikki felt as if whatever was holding Nora back from letting go finally relaxed and she slightly curled her fingers and saw Nora’s head move back as her body arched up and her eyes closed as she came right under Nikki. Nikki felt Nora’s body slowly relax and kissed Nora’s forehead as before she settled next Nora’s body and went back to sleep with Nora in her arms.
