The distance between them, which was so small already, shrank. His lips were soft and tasted smoky, like something off of a fire. She wasn’t sure what to do, but let his mouth move hers, following his lead, his compassion pouring into her. When he pulled away, it was too soon.
“Rest now,” he said. And then he was gone.
