I'm reading a fic that I don't know why I haven't read earlier, it's realistic, it's gut wrenching, it's what actually often happens in marriages. (I think, I've never been married.) You've been married for years, you have kids, you have a career, a house to clean and laundry to do... and you have a husband... one of those things is harder to feel than the others.
I feel his heart beating; its pace is increasing slightly. His skin feels soft and warm, and my hand recognizes the sensation from caressing the kids. It's the feeling of touching another human being. I let my hand wander further down, my eyes still closed. His chest hair tickles me softly inside of my palm, and I feel his nipple harden as I stroke his chest. This reaction startles me, and I quickly take my hand off him.
You can find her on twitter too @SwedenSara
Now go read it and ask for her forgiveness you haven't read it earlier... I know I will. ;)
