how i bask in your morning light

Work Text:

The best part of being serious with Niki is waking up together.

It’s so different from that first morning after, waking up to my arm stretched out over empty space and no trace of Niki to be found except for her smell on my pillow and her number scrawled out on a candy wrapper by the bed.

Waking up with her is something I once only fantasized about, but the reality is better – her body warmer, the scent of her not a faint afterthought but fresh under my nose.

If I can start every morning like this, I will – forever.
