Once her lips touched his skin, the dreamworld began to slowly fade while a big grin spread across his face in reaction. Although he was still very much half asleep and had no idea what he was smiling about exactly, he knew he enjoyed the feeling and his head dipped forward to allow her mouth better access as a cat would to encourage petting.
The invisible shapes she drew on him caused goosebumps and the soft hairs on the back of his neck to stand on end. Upon feeling her warm body behind him, he instinctively scooted back and hummed happily, enjoying all this while still slumbering. It was when the tickling began at his hips that his brows raised and he drifted closer to fully waking.
Eyes still closed, he payed attention to her warm breath along his neck and recognized the scent of her shampoo and perfume. The familiarity caused him to relax and tilt his head to place kisses along her face where he could reach from that position, catching her chin and cheek. A hand slipped backwards to rub along her thigh as he continued to regain lucidity. Yes, this was his Claire. But why was she awake now? “Breakfast so early, m'love?” he asked with a sincerely innocent tone, having no idea that he was on the menu.
