He whispered her name, waking her from her dreams. Sitting up quickly, she turned to face him, afraid that something was wrong. His eyes were closed as he continued to sleep. Looking over him, she noticed one of his hands gripping at the grass, pulling the green from the ground. Reaching out to him, she laid her hand over his, trying to calm him, but he pulled harder, his body now pushing itself off of the ground as her name left his lips once more. Moving closer to him, Kahlan pulled the blanket from his body, replacing it with herself.
Resting her hand on his chest, she pressed her body against his, bringing a soft moan from his lips. She could feel her heart pounding as she allowed herself to imagine what he was dreaming about. Moving her hand over his chest, she inched closer to him, suddenly needing his warmth. Lifting herself onto her elbow, she leaned over him, her mind trying to fight the urge that consumed her. Lightly pressing her lips against his, she moved over him, laying a knee on both his sides.
