TITLE: Dragon's Prize
GENRE: NA Fantasy
Charlie and Bast are lying on the bed, side by side, feet dangling down and discussing Charlie’s past.
"No…. I can’t, Bast. Not with you. I’ve never been more ashamed of my past.” A tear rolled out of the corner of Charlie’s eye, and down into her fiery red hair.
Her eyes popped open when she felt Bast’s lips softly touch her own. It was a sweet, tender kiss.
“I don’t care,” Bast mumbled when she pulled back slightly. She kissed Charlie’s forehead, her nose, both of her cheeks, her eyelids…
Charlie giggled and grinned happily at Bast hovering above her. She wiped away the evidence of the traitorous tear.
“Better?” Bast asked, a soft smile tilting the corners of her lips up.
“Very much. Could you repeat it so that I know for sure it actually happened?” Charlie fluttered her lashes at her warrior Goddess, making Bast’s face blush. “I mean, I—“
Bast fused their mouths again in a more passionate yet slow and tentative kiss. Charlie’s lips felt smooth and soft, the taste of apple still lingering on them. Bast wondered why she had been fighting the chemistry between them. The flutters in her belly and quickened heartbeat made her acknowledge the depths of her feelings for Charlie.
The young redhead had managed to break down all the barriers around Bast’s heart with simple smiles and by making her laugh. Bast learned from her not to take life so seriously, that there was time for worry and responsibility, but also, there was a time to relax and enjoy life. A balance was needed, and her balance was Charlie.
A moan of approval slipped from Charlie and Bast smiled against the redhead's lips.
“Did that convince you?” Bast asked, again hovering above Charlie.
Charlie still had her eyes closed, with a wide grin showing of her pearly whites. “Mmmhmmm… I wouldn’t mind repeats of it.”
