Chapter Text

Original prompt: A Scared Kiss from the Sweet Affectionate Moments Meme

She had leaned over his guitar to kiss him. So full of emotion from the song he had written for her - performed for her - used to share his love for her.

She couldn’t be comfortable. But he was terrified of ending it.

So he tentatively reached one hand to rest on the back of her neck - tangling in her curls, just like he’d dreamed so many times. Held her a bit closer. Pulled away just enough for them to catch their breaths. And then returned for more.

Praying he hadn’t screwed it all up. That she felt for him even a fraction of the way he felt for her. That she could see in his song all the promises he was too afraid to tell her in any other way.

Savoring this moment - with sirens wailing outside the window and the neighbors next door cheering on the Knicks - because it may be the last they’d ever share.

Finally, finally she pulled back. Reached for his guitar, and gently set it against the wall. Turned to face him - smiling brighter than he’d ever seen.

“Stand up,” she said quietly. Voice strong.

He stood. Knees like jelly.

Her arms reached - and he picked her up because it was the most natural thing to do. And walked slowly, slowly in the direction of her bedroom.

“I’m so scared,” she whispered against his lips.

He sat on the edge of her mattress. She wound her legs around his hips. He cradled her - the most precious thing on earth - and kissed her forehead.

“Don’t be afraid,” he swallowed. Praying that he sounded braver than he felt. “There’s the two of us now.”
