Katie smiled after his kiss, getting the chills. She clung to his shirt as he said the last four words. “Good.” She sighed out. She had been so worried there had been such a weight on her shoulders. It was like the world had been crushing her and now it was like she was floating.
“I’m just happy I’m still yours.” A year ago she would have staked claim in Hatch like her was her property. But she had learned something in the year they’d spent together. She didn’t need him to be hers. She needed to be his. She sat down on the couch and waited for him to come back with her blanket.
Hatch came back with a blanket and wrapped it around her shoulders. He sat down next to her. “Do you need anything else?” He asked wrapping his arm around her. “I could make you something warm to drink…” He thought for a moment, trying to remember if he had any real food around the house.
