He felt the raindrops begin to fall, dropping from the sky and lightly hitting his shoulders, as he dragged his suitcases up the driveway to the front door. He stopped at the welcome mat that so cleverly greeted him with "nice underwear", grinning as he pulled his keys out from his pocket and let himself inside. The house was dark and not a sound could be heard, save for the rain outside that was quickly picking up. It was unsettling seeing his home so empty. The last time he'd been home, it had been warm, bright, and full of life. He reminded himself that it was still early--six o'clock in the morning to be precise--and he was much too tired from his flight to throw any parties at the moment.
His eyes growing heavier with every step, he trudged towards the staircase, abandoning his luggage in the living room for the time being. It was heavy and his muscles were stiff and achey. By the time he reached the second floor landing, he was ready to sink into his bed and fall into a three day coma. Blindly, he meandered down the hall to his bedroom and opened the door, stopping for a moment to admire the view before him. There she was, curled up in a ball with her dark chocolate tresses messily framing her face. He couldn't hold back the smile forming on his face as he stepped forward.
He hadn't seen her since she flew out to California to visit him on tour and that had been well over a month ago. Now that he was home, all he wanted to do was hold her in his arms and kiss her all over. He wanted to tell her how much he loved her and how sorry he was for having to leave her behind again. She'd always been so understanding and insisted she didn't mind it so much, as long as he called her every night. She was so good and he wondered constantly what he'd done to deserve someone so wonderful.
Quietly, he closed the door and tiptoed past the window, over to his side of the bed. He slipped in, under the sheets, propping himself up on his side and gently placed a hand on her shoulder. She was still sound asleep so he tried shaking her lightly. She stirred, turning over on her side so that her back was now facing him. He sighed inwardly and leaned forward so that his lips brushed her ear.
"Caitlin," he whispered, trying again to rouse her from her sleep. She murmured something under her breath and nestled deeper into the comforter. "Babe, wake up," he tried once more. "I'm here. I'm home." She turned over again, now facing him, and slowly opened her eyes.
"Am I dreaming?" she murmured, pressing herself into him. He smelled like he hadn't showered in three days, but she didn't care. She was just happy to feel him, hold him, and have him by her side. He smiled and kissed her forehead. "I missed you, Alex," she said, holding him tighter. "You have no idea."
"I think I do," he replied softly, lifting her chin and bringing her lips to his. They kissed as if they had to make up for all the weeks of lost time together. He climbed on top of her, hungrily reconnecting his lips with hers as she ran her hands down his sides. "Oh God, I missed you," Alex mumbled against her skin, his lips moving down from her jawline to her sensitive neck. Her eyes fluttered shut as she sighed in pure bliss. She'd been craving him for so long.
Soon their clothes were shed and tossed to the floor. Their bodies moved against each other's perfectly, pleasure rippling throughout the two of them. It was just the reminder she needed to know that nothing between them had changed. She was all his and he was still all hers. No matter how many miles or months separated them, their love for each other only grew stronger. As the heat began to dial down, Alex lied down beside Caitlin, wrapping her in his arms and pulling her closer to him.
She reached up and cupped his cheek in her palm, kissing him once more. "I love you," she whispered, her lips still barely touching his. He kissed her and pressed his forehead to hers, looking into her eyes.
"I love you too."
