Gabrielle put her hand up to Xena’s cheek. Closing her eyes, Xena lent into the touch, a smile playing on her mouth.
“I love your lips. I love to watch you smile. It gives me this feeling of happiness and tells me that no matter what, everything will be alright because I have you, Xena. I’ve been dreaming about those lips. Wondering what it would be like to feel them on me, a burning desire to claim them. I don’t only love you; I’m in love with you.” Gabrielle stepped back.
“Then why regret?” Xena asked, opening her eyes slowly.
“Because,” she couldn’t help but to blush, “I knew you could never feel the same way for me…” Gabrielle chuckled lightly ones to ease the mood.
“That’s ridiculous! You couldn’t possibly know what!”
Xena tried to move closer, but stepping back, Gabrielle raised her hands to tell Xena to stop. “Don’t.”
“I love you Gabrielle. Let me love you… Let me love you the way we both want to.” Gabrielle quickly looked up, stopping her movements. “You’re the most amazing woman ever to walk the earth. I wish you could see that. You’re so smart and pure hearted, and you’re so beautiful.” Xena took one of Gabrielle’s locks of hair in her hand. “I’m in love with you,” she whispered, before closing the distance between them and pressing her lips against Gabrielle’s. At first it was soft, lips barely touching, afraid of the new contact. But after a short time, Xena moved even closer, pressing her lips firmly against Gabrielle’s, sending shivers through her spine. This was way better than any dream. A soft moan escaped from Gabrielle’s mouth, giving Xena the opportunity to deepen the kiss even more, and she didn’t flinch before taking it, holding Gabrielle closely.
As tongues passionately danced with one another, Xena placed her hand on Gabrielle’s toned stomach, tracing the line upward to her chest. Things were getting hotter and Gabrielle’s heart started to beat like crazy. She blushed from head to toe, unable to move. She let Xena kiss her, hold her and touch her, but she was afraid. She had never been with a woman, and only once with a man, and was afraid it was all moving too fast for her.
