The Laodri’cian

by R.T. Allenson

“No, I’m not..”

He silenced me with his stare, those verdant eyes that both chilled me and made me feelĀ  at home. Made me feel that I belong.

I pushed against him but he didn’t care. His strength overcoming mine, he pulled me closer, locking me deep in his embrace. I was afraid and I tried to run away, but I did not resist when he touched my face with his hand and pulled me deep into a kiss. A kiss I could only describe as…eternal.

He whispered something to me and my eyes widened – all six of them. I smiled.

“I love you too.”
