I was soundly sleeping against my comfy pillow with someone wrapped warmly around my body. Her hair was tickling my nose and lips making me wake up slowly but what truly woke me up was the blaring of the alarm on her nightstand. I tried to reach it to turn it off but with her on top of me was an impossible mission.
"Lena... baby, wake up" I tried to move her off me but she was clutched to my side like a Koala. "Lena Kieran Luthor-Danvers, wake the fuck up" I groaned and she scowled against my chest to hug me tighter.
"Don't move, I'm trying to sleep" She mumbled softly and I tried to sleep over the sound of the alarm but I couldn't.
"Baby, turn off the alarm" I whined finally making her move to snap the alarm off with a rather aggressive gesture.
"Are you happy now?" She said nuzzling against my neck.
"Pretty much, thank you" I replied giggling and I pressed a kiss on her head against her hair.
"Hmm" She hummed sleepily.
"Wanna have breakfast?" I asked after a while caressing her naked back.
"Hmm... yes" She mumbled but didn't make a move to get off me. " Pancakes and bacon please" She added still not moving.
"Okay baby, whatever you like but you need to move off from me," I said laughing at her when she groaned refusing to move.
"Ugh fine, but after breakfast, we should get back to bed or cuddle on the couch." She said standing up to put a big shirt on her naked body. She went to her drawer and grabbed a pair of panties to put them on, I groaned softly and she chuckled. "We have company Danvers, I'm not going around the house my pussy on sight," She said cockily.
I smiled when she stepped out of the room and headed to the kitchen. Who would have thought that I would have married my high school sweetheart after 15 years of not seeing each other, both of us making our lives apart from the other, only to end up married?
Surely Lena and I have been through a lot but it only made us stronger. After I went to the Army, Lena and I kept communication through letters and sometimes my captain let me skype her, but sooner than later those contacts grew less frequently. Letters were exchanged once a month, Skype calls were non-existent until I receive the last letter from my girlfriend.
My dearest love,
Please know that I love you more than my life and I will always love you, we were bound to be together but I'm starting to think our time has passed. We are barely communicating and even if we love each other like the first day, I think it's better if we let go of each other, you need to focus on your career on the Army and I need to focus on mine...
I love you, Kara, I do, please be happy and remember that you are and always be the love of my life. May we meet again my traveler.
Sincerely and always yours,
That letter broke my heart immensely, but I understood, it was difficult, especially with me risking my life, she deserves to be happy, the happiest woman alive and she wasn't with me, so I sent her home my ring, the ring my parents gave me before they died, the most precious material thing to me.
To my princess and the only person I will ever love, please keep this ring with you until I found you again, I promise I will always find you even after death. I love you greatly.
Sincerely and always yours, Kara.
After we met in the parent-teacher meeting four years ago, she stayed at my home for the night by my daughter's idea, Phoebe and Jane, her girlfriend and I listened intently as she told us how her life has been seen that last letter. She married a woman, Kate, she loved her so much and they were so good together but she had cancer and die a few years ago, Lena decides to come back to National City to teach at her highs school not knowing that I was in National City as well. Later that night, she gave me the ring.
"So, you have a spare room or can I sleep on the couch?" Lena asked as Jane and Phoebe went upstairs to sleep after a movie.
" You can sleep with me...in my bed, in my room," I said softly in a whisper.
"You want me to sleep with you?" She asked surprised.
"Of course, I've not seen the love of my life in 15 years, I need to have you in my bed, closer to me because Lena, I'm not letting you go a second time," I said in a firm tone but full of passion and love. Love that has never faded, love that has always been there for her, because she owns my heart since the first time we saw each other.
"I'm not leaving ever again," She said leaning into me for a kiss. " I have something for you..." She said pulling away and putting her hands around the back of her neck. She unhooked the necklace she was wearing and I could see what was hanging at the end of it; the ring I gave her in that last letter, the one I told her to give back once I found her again. "This is yours and I'm glad to be giving it back " I interrupted her kissing her lips fiercely due to the sentiment she woke up in my by that gesture. She kissed me back with the same passion and soon I had her on my lap straddling me. Her hands were on my hair tugging it to pulling impossibly closer to her, my hands were on her hips, tickling to wandered around that body that was once mine... and it has always been mine.
"Kara!" I heard my wife calling me from the kitchen effectively snapping me out of my memories.
"On my way!" I yelled back as I stood up from the bed and proceed to put a long shirt over my naked body and a pair of wool shorts. I almost tripped with the rug and I tried to play it off but Lena knows me better because she came out of the kitchen with a wooden spoon in her hand and a serious look on her face.
"One of these days you will fall on your back and I will have to take care of you... Stop running around the house, you're not a kid anymore" She pointed at me with the spoon before returning to the kitchen with me following closely.
"Aw you will take care of me if I'm stupid enough to fall on my back," I said giving her a kiss on the cheek from behind while she was scrambling eggs on the pan. " Don't worry babe, I will not, plus I'm strong remember? " I said flexing my biceps for her. Her eyes were intently following the movements of my muscles under my skin and I saw how she almost choked on her own saliva when I extended my arm to take out some plates from the pantry.
"You're a tease Danvers..." she muttered under her breath while now looking the food. " you better fuck me hard when we are alone," She said more to herself than to me but I could hear her clearly.
" I will. Wait for it," I said hugging her waist from behind and biting the exposed skin of her neck. Not long after we heard a loud thud on the second floor, we saw each other we worried looks to then start calling the girls. We got laughs as an answer, we got closer to the stairs and we could see Phoebe laying on the floor trying to pout at her girlfriend laughing at her but failing miserably because of Jane's contagious laugh.
"Are you okay, Phe?" Lena asked softly when Jane's laughter subsided.
"Yes, mama" She turned to look at Lena with a playful smile " I just tripped with rug and Jane instead of helping me keep my balance let go my hand," She said now glaring at the brunette who was still laughing but offering her hand to the blonde.
"Come on babe, I was just trying to keep my balance, I'm sorry I let you go... are you hurt?" she asked when Phoebe was finally standing.
"No, I'm okay" She smiled to give her a kiss on the lips. " I'm okay mama, I'm sorry if I made you worry" She apologized sincerely to Lena, as she is too emotional over her family.
" You're just like your mother..." Lena huffed. " She almost fell over the rug just a few minutes ago." She rolled her eyes playfully. " Come on, to the table, breakfast ready."
We all gather around the table, Phe and I holding Lena and Jane's hand over the table while eating with the other one, it was a habit we got after a few months of having meals together.
The girls talked about the things that they will be doing once they go to the campus, they talked about college clubs they want to join, an extra curse they want to take and of course the parties they want to attend to. I was a little strict about the last and set some rules for them to follow, like not going to parties without the other one and always letting one of us know where and with who are they going. In that way, both of us would be tranquil knowing that nothing wrong can happen to them.
"Mama don't cry... I will call you guys every day, and we will come back for Christmas, summer and spring break, we can also skype every weekend... Mama just please stop crying" Said Phoebe with hoarse voice trying to calm Lena who was crying non-stop as we got the girls to the airport later that morning. Jane was in the store buying Phoebe a book ( more like giving us privacy, even though she is part of the family already) for them to read on the plane to Italy where they are going to receive a short course about art and science working together before starting college in Metropolis.
"I'm so proud of you Phoebe, I know I'm not your real mother and that I didn't give birth to you but you're my princess and I love you so much, I want you to take good care of yourself and Jane okay?" Lena said between sobs.
"You're my mom too" She said firmly " You've been more a parent that one of my biological ones... you are better than him and I love you so much mama, I promise that I will take care of myself and Jane... by the way between you and me" She leaned in to whisper into Lena's ear. " I want to marry her, I'm planning to propose on Italy as we will be there by our 5th anniversary" She grinned and my heart fluttered in my chest, my baby daughter is not so baby anymore and will propose to her girlfriend.
After a few words, tears and hugs exchanged, the girls boarded the plane and we stayed there with Lena, holding hands and watching them leave on the plane until the plane was out of sight.
"What do we do know?" Lena asked with a sigh and cleaning her tears with a napkin. I turned around to face her and help her clean her face with a soft smile on my lips.
"We can do whatever we want... we finally have a life together to enjoy" I leaned in for a kiss which Lena gave back.
"I love you, Kara, I always have and I always will"
"I love you forever Lena"
