He perceived her smell and her warmth even stronger than ever before. His arms lay along his body. His muscles were tense, because he had to stop himself from doing anything he could regret later. He was bounded by promises and he wanted to respect her integrity. In case, he was discovered, he wanted her to stay safe and intact. He’d love nothing better than to kiss her red lips, her little faint skin and make love with her. It was his basic instinct and he controlled it. But to be to keep the distance, it was better to stand up and leave the bed. Otherwise, the risk was too high that he followed the bodily needs and wishes unerringly. He couldn’t underestimate the things he wanted to do.
Marcus Lucius stopped in front of Julia’s bedroom doors and wasn’t sure whether he was allowed to go into the room or whether he should sleep in his own bed this night. After all, he was drunk which could trigger a less polite look of Julia. He stood in the floor for a longer while and couldn’t decide what to do. Still uncertain, he perceived a motion in Julia’s room. He reacted immediately. He jumped like a lion and within seconds, he was in the middle of the chamber. He looked around. The light was dimmed, barley enough to see, but a skilled, trained soldier was able to recognize the shapes of different objects. He saw the blurry edges of a wooden sideboard, a rough, heavy table and two comfortable chairs, Julia left her dress in a chaotic way. Then, he looked to the bed and saw Julia’s shape. She wasn’t sleeping. Her eyes sparkled in the night like two little, magic stars. He came to her and kissed her passionately. She had soft, pleasant lips and warm, delightful skin. He held her face in his hands and kissed chaotically, quickly, greedily. She returned the kiss, surprised by her openness and lacking resistance. It was a good feeling she had inside her heart.
