"Its good to be back." Nyx breathed, a smile on her face. Her arms were locked around my neck as I braced myself over her.
I got lost in her violet eyes. For the first time since the exile, she looked stunningly happy.
"I love you Thantos." she whispered, so softly I almost missed it.
I leaned down and kissed her deeply. The cool breeze danced across the grounds, brushing over our hot skin. We shivered together, not breaking contact. Finally, we parted, breathless again.
"I love you too Nyx." I whispered in her ear, trailing my lips down, along her jaw. She put her hand on my cheek, guiding my face so that she could look me in the eye. She smiled again, practically glowing. She guided me so that I kissed her again. Here, under the cover of her night, there was no hesitation, no holding back.
"Nyx?" an all-too-familiar voice called out.
Growling, I rolled off her, sitting up, but keeping very close. Nyx sat up, her hair mussed, looking more stunning than ever. The moon glanced off her skin, making her eyes glow as she looked at me in confusion.
"Than?" she sounded stunned.
The God of the Underground himself appeared from lower down the rise.
"What do you want?" I growled, annoyed at the interruption.
Than began to talk.
