You emerged from the bathroom clad in your sleeping kimono, using a towel to dry your long, damp, brown locks off. You bit your bottom lip as your brown eyes scanned the darkened hallway before you, staring down that way for a few seconds before retreating into your room. Hanging the towel to dry, you sat in front of your desk, and with a look at the mirror right next to it, you grabbed your comb and began detangling your hair.
Your window was cracked open slightly, allowing you a glimpse of the full moon and the midnight blue sky as you combed your hair. A small smile formed on your lips as you mentally admired the moon and the stars; the sight never ceased to amaze you and put your mind in a tranquil state.
You were so occupied with the sight of the sky that you didn’t hear the sound of footsteps coming up towards your room, and not even the sound of a gentle knock on your door was enough to catch your attention. As if you never heard it, you continued to stare at the sky and comb your hair out.
“Are you still awake?”
The gruff, yet familiar voice snapped you out of your daze, and you felt your heart leap within the confines of your chest.
“Come on in,” you replied.
You glanced over your shoulder when the door slid open, and your suspicions were confirmed when you saw the Lieutenant of the Shinsen-gumi. He was in his regular attire as opposed to his usual uniform, which was an indicator that there was most likely no patrols scheduled for the evening.
“Good evening. What brings you to my chamber tonight, Hijikata?"
“I finished my duties for the day, and I didn’t want to go to sleep. So, I decided to come see you.”
You nodded. “I just need to finish combing out my hair. The futon’s already set up. You can go on ahead and lie down. I’ll join you in a minute.”
You turned back to face the mirror to finish up with your hair, watching his movements from the mirror. It didn’t take you much longer, and once you set the comb down on the desk, you saw him come up to you from behind and move your hair aside to expose your neck and began planting kisses on your skin.
One of your hands moved to his face, caressing his cheek and then moving to the back of his head, your fingers becoming lost in his ebony locks.
“Your scent is so alluring. I can’t contain myself any longer.”
He grabbed a hold of your collar and opened it, bringing the fabric of your kimono down just enough to expose your shoulders. His continued kissing her neck, and then moved down to your shoulder, teasing your skin with the tip of his tongue. A low moan combined with a gasp escaped your lips as you leaned your head back against his shoulder. When you turned your face in his direction, Hijikata took advantage of the opportunity to capture your lips in a hungry, passionate kiss. He nibbled on your bottom lip while his tongue made its way into your mouth, finding yours in a sensual dance.
You let out a soft squeal when you felt him pick you up off the floor and carry you bridal style to your futon in the corner. He kept his lips locked on yours, and you wrapped your arms around his shoulders, finding the collar of his kimono and opening it. When he set you down on your futon, you were able to loosen the sash and open his kimono all the way, exposing his physique and pulling the fabric down until it hit the floor. With another nibble to your bottom lip, Hijikata pulled away from your lips and pulled the sash holding your kimono in place. Eying your body, he opened your kimono and pushed the fabric off your arms. His breath hitched at the sight of you; you were perfection, body and soul, and he was dying to spend the entire night unleashing the passion he felt all over you.
“You are so beautiful. I want to spend all of tonight making love to you.”
“I have the day off tomorrow. I can go all night, and in fact, I welcome it.”
Using his knee to spread your legs apart and creating a niche for his hips, Hijikata sealed his lips against yours once again, hungrily sucking your bottom lip. One hand grabbed your own, his fingers intertwining with yours while his other hand found your cheek, gently stroking your skin with his fingertips and moving down to your collarbone. His hips moved in a gentle rhythm as he entered your core, matching in sync with the sucking of your bottom lip. He swallowed the numerous moans that erupted from your throat and then returned one of his own when he felt your fingertips of your free hand caress his shoulder.
He then pulled away from your lips and moved down to your neck, showering your throat with numerous kisses. A moan loud enough to flood the entire room emerged when he suckled on your collarbone, and your free hand moved up to the back of his head, holding him against your neck. You gasped when he picked up the pace of his hips, and you locked your legs around his waist. His free hand found your ankle and caressed his way up your leg to your hip. You felt a warm tingle on your collarbone, and knew right then and there that he left a love bite there.
His ears perked at the sound of his name leaving your lips, which was more a breathy sigh than anything else. The sound of it was so erotic that he wanted to hear it over and over again for the rest of the night.
“You are so amazing. Keep saying my name like that, love.”
The rest of the night was spent with the two of you drowning in each other’s passion.
Damn. He looks so handsome and sexy.
You reached out to touch his face, gently caressing his cheek with your fingertips. When you moved your hand into his hair, he stirred from his slumber.
“Good morning, sleepyhead,” you whispered with a small smile.
He leaned forward and placed a soft, gentle kiss on your lips.
“I want to stay here with you like this all day.”
“Do you have to work today?”
“The guys insisted that I take today off. Saito decided to take over the paperwork for today.”
“Well, bless their hearts. I have you all to myself today, and I could spend this whole day in my futon with you.”
You let out a small squeal of delight when he rolled over on top of you, and you wrapped your arms around his shoulders to welcome it.
“Let’s make the most of our time then, love.”
With those words, Hijikata sealed his lips against yours in another passionate kiss.
