My gaze sweeps across the group waiting for us. Demetri stands off to the side with his parents and our little sister, who's talking a million miles a minute. My dad has his arm around my mom, their heads bent close together as they whisper back and forth. My eyes immediately move to Savannah, my heart rolling in my chest when my gaze falls on her.
She stands at the top of the deep steps, watching my family with a soft smile on her face. Her hair is pulled up into a complicated bun with loose strands framing her face. Her pale pink dress – a simple, elegant sheath with a sheer piece over it – ends at mid-thigh. Her cheeks are flushed and her beautiful eyes wide as she nibbles on her bottom lip.
She's absolutely breathtaking.
I start toward her, unable to take my eyes off of her.
Her smile spreads, lighting her up from the inside out when she notices me coming toward her. My stomach clenches, twisting at that soft look in her eyes, like she can't quite believe I'm really hers. I'll never understand how she could ever think she's less than I am. She's more… so much more.
"Hi, handsome," she says in that quiet way of hers when I stop in front of her.
I wrap an arm around her waist and reel her in until she's pressed against my chest. I sigh, content, when my arms are firmly around her, her heart beating against my chest. "Fuck, I've missed you," I murmur.
"I missed you too."
My lips find hers, pressing urgently, demanding she let me in. She does, a soft sigh whispering from her lips as she melts against me, her arms around my neck as she kisses me deeply. I pull her closer, everything but her dissolving the minute she opens that sweet mouth for me. Within a matter of seconds, I'm hard and aching, desperate to slide her dress up her thighs and press myself inside of her. It's always like this with her... intense and consuming and perfect.
How'd I get so lucky?
"It's my wedding day, fuckers," Chris booms, his voice echoing around the Rotunda. "Save that shit for your own day!"
My sister starts giggling.
"Christopher Allen Corbit, language!" my mom scolds.
Demetri's father laughs loudly until his wife slaps him on the shoulder and shushes him.
"Jesus, they're worse than children," I grunt and pull back reluctantly, burying my face in Savannah's hair. Her body vibrates with silent laughter against mine, pulling out my own chuckle. I hold her for a moment, just reveling in the feel of her in my arms, before I turn us to face my family.
