30 Days Second Sem, Elemental Love

For the 30 Days Meme Second Semester, for the prompt “26) Prompt: Elemental .”

Started out Stranded world, ended up misc misc.

“You’re wild,” he murmured, his hand tracing the line of her hip and flank, the tattoos inked there, the flesh stretched over the bone. “Elemental. Untamed. Like a volcano, like a waterfall. Unrestrained, untamed.”

“I wasn’t that loud,” she chuckled, both embarrassed and amused by his effluvient praise.

“You know what I meant,” he protested, smiling as if she’d said something very clever.

“I do,” she admitted. Others had said similar things. Others had eventually said those things as complaints, instead of praise. Instead of saying those things, things that were relationship taboo, she said instead, “even the waterfall and the volcano bend to natural law, my love.”

“I’m not sure you do,” he admitted, a little bit of his nervousness showing through. “When you’re dancing, I’m never certain if gravity really applies to you, and when you really get going, I’m pretty sure you break a couple laws of thermodynamics.”

Dancing. She traced his ribs with her fingertip, wondering why it was dancing this time. “Gravity applies,” she assured him. She wasn’t going to lie, but that was different than telling him the whole truth. “And I bow to all of nature’s laws, my beautiful darling.”

“Just not to society’s.” Now, he sounded jealous. “Some day, I worry, someone will burn you at the stake for all of that, wildflower. The outcast can’t live.”

“But I do.” She pressed a kiss to his sternum, and hoped he’d forget. “I do.”
