Logan doesn’t have many scars. Surprisingly, his skin is mostly smooth and unmarked.

This is why it’s such a surprise when Veronica finds one of those few scars, burned low on his back. She’s still for a moment, hesitant to do more than look at it. Just as he is about to say something, anything, to break the moment and draw her attention from that bit of puckered flesh, he feels the brush of her fingers.

She doesn’t stop there but continues to trace patterns all over his skin, moving up over his back until her hands come to rest on his shoulders.

When he turns to face her, he’s expecting to see pity in her eyes. He’s surprised when he finds none. Veronica doesn’t pity him; she understands that he doesn’t want that.

She doesn’t protest when his hands start moving over her and he smiles when she shivers.

“Soft,” he says softly and she smiles.

“I’ve been told I’m a marshmallow.”

It’s almost too easy. “Just waiting for someone to eat you?”

She laughs and any awkwardness there might have been is gone as they continue to explore each other’s bodies. Each touch is a new discovery. There’s a spot just below her ear that causes her to let out a breathy moan and she now knows how sensitive his neck is.

Later that night he wraps an arm around her when he feels her stirring.

“Stay.”

She hesitates for a moment and then leans back against him. “Okay.”

You are evil. Pure evil. This was so poetic and beautiful and how could you end it there? You are a diabolical genius.

I just have one thing to say.

I agree with the above comments.

How could you leave it there?! I mean seriously - You. Must. Write. More. It's as simple as that really. I will hold you to this...you must write more in order to fully satisfy my LoVe addiction. ^_^ That sound good to you? Good? Good. Great? Great. LOL

And I will even up the stakes, I will give you a chapter of my story that you beta for me if you write more...like now. Start writing. :)
Nicole: Guh. Enough said.blue_icy_rose on April 19th, 2006 06:51 pm (UTC)
I'd like that chapter now, please. ~_^ Because I got the fourth one done! *looks at email* Oh. Well, you know that already. Okay then. Er....*glances around for distraction, points at icon* Look! Naked Xander!

*runs away to go write the final part*

Or I could write part four for the others. Whatever. LOL.

Each of these ficlets has been so delicate and wonderful. I love Logan's response to Veronica's "...I'm a marshmallow." It's so Logan.
