“what are you doing?” I ask James as I step out onto our small porch.
“enjoying the rain” he says and pats the spot next to him on our love seat. I sit down next to him and rest my head against his shoulder. We sit in silence for a few minutes enjoying the the sound of the pouring rain and the thunder. The mist covers my hair making it shine in the constant flashing lightning.
“It's beautiful tonight” James states. I sigh
“yes it is” I pull my feet up next to me and he puts his arm around me and gently kisses me on the head.
“I love you” he whispers his breath warm against my cheek in the cool evening. I curl up closer to him and whisper.
“I love you too” he rub's his thumb over my shoulder and I fall asleep.
I wake up in James arms a he carries me into the house and into our bedroom. The rain patters softly against the windows and thunder rumbles softly in the distance. He places me onto our bed and covers my with a blanket he kisses my forehead and walks out of the room. I roll onto my side and drift back to sleep.
BOOM! A loud crack of thunder wakes me up, I sit up and look around my room. The rain pounds against the window. James stirs next to me.
“Whats wrong?” he asks me groggily.
“it's just the storm” I reply laying back down trying to calm my beating heart.
“do you still not like storms at night?” James whispers softly in my ear as he slides his hand around my waist, his presence soothes my frazzled nerves.
“Bad things always happen during thunder storms” I say. He chuckles
“You've seen to many scary movies”
“Don't worry..I'll take care of you” he says pulling me close to him. I nod and allow myself to relax. I soon drift off to sleep again.
