This is just a short little bit of nothing that I did as an exercise with my writing partner. It turned out….differently than intended. This random character is rather darker once you get in his head. If you likey, I’ll write more of him. If not, he at least got this flash of the spotlight.
I’m not as nice a person as people think I am. Not nearly as self-sacrificing either. I know for a fact that most of my motivations are actually pretty selfish. I made my peace with that a long time ago though, there was a point when I had decided I needed to change my nature. Try to be a better person…. but that was before I met you. All the books say falling in love makes you put that person first but that’s not what happened with us. If anything, you make me even more selfish. Everything I do is with the single-minded goal of keeping you right here with me. Every sweet gesture, every gift, every word. It’s all calculated and executed with that in mind. Nothing drives this fact home more than when I have you panting under me.
“Tell me again.”
“Yours. All yours.”
Over and over, I make you say it. You think it’s because I need the reassurance. It’s not. I know exactly who you belong to. This is all to make sure YOU know it. That you understand. You wanted my love but it comes with a cost. I’ll be yours, all yours. In return, you have to be mine. All mine. Never forget who it is you tied yourself to. Who it is that makes you smile. The one who shares every bit your life. Because we both promised now and forever. Til death do we part.
