The woman‘s head was heavy on his chest, but he liked it. Hell, he didn‘t
care if it weighed a ton more, he didn‘t want her to move. He shifted
slightly so she could tuck her shoulder into his under arm more. He felt
her stiffen beneath him.

"Are you okay. Do you want me to move?"

His arms quickly moved to pin her to him, "God, no! don‘t move please, I‘m

He felt her settle once more, and he lay back and closed his eyes; A tiny
smile of pure happiness spread across his face and he couldn‘t help but
snuggle even closer, if that was possible.

The minutes slipped by with only the rhythm of each others heartbeats to

surprised when his body didn‘t react to her closeness.

Maybe it was the union of their hearts, now beating against each other.
Maybe it was because they were still in awe of what had just happened
between them. Maybe it was because it was more than just sex now. Maybe it
was the constant chirp of wildlife, creating a soothing song that lulled
their senses, and their bodies.

That was until she moved her leg and woke those senses up.

He groaned.

She sat up, her eyes concerned, "I‘m sorry, do you want me to move now."

With a rakish grin upon his face,  a quick grasp of her buttocks, pinning
her against his suddenly rejuvenated manhood, "Oh, yes, sweetheart. yes
