Since the Imago came…
From the porch swing I can see miasma painting the sky grey as the sun falls. I know I should hate the color like I do every other gray thing in this world since the Imago came, but the way it swirls is nothing less than beautiful.
Tomorrow’s the day. Tomorrow Jax will leave to fight the Imago. Tomorrow I may never see him again.
Our minds share strong synchronicity. He knows I’m thinking about him, because he steps from the house and onto the porch.
He gives me a hesitant smile, and I mirror it back. He doesn’t speak as he sits next to me. He takes my hand and I sigh. I love the way his hand fits into mine.
“It’s going to work. We’re going to beat them,” Jax’s husky voice holds me tight.
“You don’t know for sure. What if you don’t come back?” I whisper.
Jax answers me with a kiss. He skips the sweet soft beginning and jumps right to the hot hungry middle. His kisses fill me to my lacuna, until there isn’t one part that doesn’t belong to him. I oscitate and try to catch my breath.
“I’ll be back,” he promises.
