A swatch of white against tan. Not dark brown, not a worn piece of leather in the sun... but rich and warm, caramel in soft light.
And a bit of white, a dusting upon her nose.
It beckons Olivia closer from her hidden place of observance, pulls her from musing and staring.
She walks quietly, watching the arms move and the fingers knead.
She watches Natalia work, the signs of breakfast here and there. Cracked egg-shells rest haphazardly on the counter, listing to one side and the milk remains out, sitting to the right.
The woman pushes up a sleeve, leaving ghostly fingerprints on the material. And Olivia moves her attention from the smudge of flour to the arm revealed.
Muscles twitching and flexing with action, smooth and strong... and Olivia inhales sharply.
Natalia spins around, her hands still covered in dough. Natalia spins around and Olivia wonders, for a moment, what she did to get this woman.
Did I please God? Did I finally fix what was broken? Did I make things right? Did I do the right thing for all the right reasons... and is that how I got her?
But Natalia is smiling and Olivia doesn't care how she got to this place, this house and this life and this love... she is only happy to be here.
Right now, as she reaches out and wipes the flour away.
Right now, as she leans forward and kisses Natalia's forehead.
Right now... as they kiss each other, slowly forgetting all about the rest of the world.
