Well, they’re back and this is pretty fluffy.
The fog was only just starting to lift. Sven realised that it was dark, that at some point the lights had been turned down. He hadn’t remembered that happening. All he could hear was his breathing and the blood rushing at his temples. He gasped and pulled at the ropes that bound his hands and ankles. Nothing.
In the dark there was a soft clink and behind him a lamp was switched on, the scent that accompanied it familiar.
“How are you feeling now?” Mimi’s voice loomed behind him, filling his thoughts. He could feel her pulling at the ropes. They loosened from his ankles and she pulled them off. He tried to look around but he couldn’t, he was flat on his belly, his arms behind his back, tied in two places. He tried to speak but he only choked out a grunt, nodding.
Mimi sighed and Sven could hear her moving things behind him, packing away and running her cold, slender fingers over his ankles and burning thighs.
“Poor baby,” she whispered rubbing his back, slipping her fingers into the knots, “You take so much for me.” The ropes around Sven’s elbows began to loosen and Mimi planted a soft kiss on his jaw, “Sometimes, I’m afraid I ask too much.”
Sven shook his head, his thoughts still shattered and vague, darting around his mind like silent, brightly coloured fish, vivid and mute and mesmerizing.
“No.” he answered, turning onto his side, trying shakily to sit up. “Never. Oh…it was…great. It was really great – I – I can’t – It was hard and intimate and-“ he broke off, his thoughts scattering.
Mimi smiled and climbed on the bed next to him. She’d changed into a grey t-shirt and some plain underwear. “I brought you some juice and food. You need to ground yourself. Here,” She handed him a cup of bright juice and Sven took it smiling. “Better?”
Sven nodded, “Never better.”
“Good.” Mimi l placed the cup on the side table before lying back and pulling Sven with her. She rubbed his back gently, soothing the marks she’d spent the past half hour inflicting. A shiver skated across her shoulders and she ran her finger across them, wiping them gently. She took a clot from the table and wiped them over, making the man sprawled out in front of her wince. They had played hard and heavy and Mimi felt it. She wrapped him in a towel and squeezed his shoulder gently. “Done.” She smiled.
“Love you.” Sven smiled and brushed her hair from her face, he twisted around and sat up. “So much.” He kissed her softly and she pulled herself nearer.
“Are you sure you’re okay?” she asked again, “I always feel a little bit bad afterward, you know?” She winced and Sven nodded, thinking.
“You needn’t.” he replied at last. “It’s frightening but I want it, god, I need it. More than I think ever realised. I want you.” He leant over and kissed her again.
“Want you too.”Mimi answered smiling. “I’m sorry I’ve been so stand offish recently. I’m trying. You’re feeling better now?”
“Really, kitten, I’m fine. I’ve just got to come down.” Sven said, “Same with you.”
Mimi nodded. “Yes. It was really great. I’m a little…knocked out, you’re right.” Mimi took a sip of water and laid down, “Lie with me.”
Mimi pulled the blankets over them. “Sleep now.” She said, “You need your sleep.” She kissed his cheek and rubbed his belly gently.
“Hmm.” Sven yawned. “And you.”
Mimi looked over and found that Sven had already closed his eyes, sinking into the covers sleepily. She smiled, watching him curl up and fall asleep, happy and sated. It was not long before she did the same.
