"Are you okay?" he sounded sleepy and I resisted the urge to pet his head. That was basically asking for an emotional attachment and that was so not my intention.
"Mhmm. Better than okay."
"See. Sex is awesome. And you're really good at it. So..." He let his voice trail away into the darkness.
He was clearly trying to make sure I wasn't regretting what we had just done but it was making me uncomfortable.
"Um... okay." I wasn't sure if I was supposed to say thank you or tell him he was good too. Well, fantastic actually. But ....details. I decided to deflect. "Is there a rest of that last sentence?"
"Well, I just, I didn't want you to be hard on yourself or anything. You were literally made to do this." He hands were starting to wander from my waist.
"Arguably, everyone is made to to do this." I smirked down at him, pleased at dissecting his compliments and making him have to keep rewording things to get his point across. Yes, I was a word monster.
His fingers danced in a threatening tickle. "You know what I mean."
"Do I? Perhaps I am particularly obtuse. What if subtlety is entirely beyond my cognitive abilities." I was just having fun now.
"They mean -" I began.
"I know what they mean but only you would use those kinds of words in my bed right now." He was laughing at me again but I didn't mind.
"I like words." I shrugged beneath him and watched his hair jostle slightly.
He turned his head to look at me. "More than you like me?"
"I don't like you." I said matter of factly. "I like having sex with you."
His laughter shook the whole bed. "Yeah. You're definitely welcome back in this bed any time you want."
I put on my most pretentious voice. "Why thank you. And assuming I would like to return, how do the logistics work? Do I get a password to a private google calendar and all the girls are color coded so you don't accidentally double book your bed?"
He nuzzled against my ribs, almost shyly. "It's really nothing like that."
His hand found mine in the blankets and before I knew it, I heard the soft snuffling of his sleep breathing. I might have gotten into this for strictly casual sex but this gorgeous man asleep on my chest was a nice bonus.
