FanFiction Friday. Based on a drawing by Dracophile done just yesterday for "Everyday Thursday" at the club at deviant art.
Five More Minutes
The sun filtered in through the bare window, the curtains having been removed for this sole purpose of waking as a natural alarm clock that couldn't be dozed or thrown against the wall. The sunlight further warmed the bed, directly below the window, and the bed's two occupants.
The sun awoke the darker skinned bedmate first, his green skin sensitive to the sun like any plant. He yawned and stretched his arms further around his partner, whom had buried himself against his chest during the night. A smile stretched across his face as he felt those strong arms wrap his arms around him in return.
Querl, whom had physically matured and built up muscles like his fellow Legionnaires over the years since he had become human, gently massaged Clark's scalp with one hand as he took hold of Clark's arm with the other.
Before Querl could give him a shake, Clark give Querl a squeeze and sleepily mumbled, "Five more minutes…"
It was hard for Querl not to smile at that.
"You say that everyday, Clark."
Still Querl did not shake him or make any further attempt to rouse him. He simply held him and caressed the sleep tussled locks as the sun and the early morning made no urgent requests of them.
A smile could almost be heard in Clark's sigh as he melted into Querl's touch.
