Cordelia and Sol… Duality (Coming Soon) Copyright Author ER Pierce
“I want – ” I snapped my mouth shut, looked away and stared out the window into the pre-dawn morning. The world outside remained in the grey void, the peaceful moment before the sunrise cast the demons out of the world and sunshine ruled the earth once more.
“What do you want?”
Unsure how to answer without giving myself away, without giving him a way to hurt me, I continued to stare out the paned glass as tiny rays of color peeked through the rain splatter and peppered my floor with prisms of unfiltered happiness.
He reached over and grabbed my chin, pulling my face back towards his and I helplessly locked eyes with him, his aura tugging me deeper, holding me closer, forging a bond so close to love I barely saw straight. “Tell me, Cordelia.”
He rested on his arms above me, and his strength called to me on a primal level. A complex layer I didn’t fully understand because I’d never experienced this deep and profound ache in my life. In the honest moments of my mind, I feared he would break me when he left. I feared giving him the power to hurt me but I had no choice. The words wanted to escape and move into his heart.
A small piece of me still believed in hope. However minute or unattainable it seemed, I wanted to hope. “I want you to love me. I need someone who needs me. But most of all, I know you understand me, and I crave that bond so much that when I’m with you, it’s all I feel. It consumes me. Fires me. Eats at my fine tuned control until there is nothing left of me but the feel of you in my bones.”
