Drabbles: Carol & Daryl
Title: Little Moments
Pairing: Daryl & Carol
A/N: This was written for sweetcherokeerose on tumblr during a drabble prompt. The prompt was Love Me. The challenge was that I had to write the two of our characters (She's Carol. I'm Daryl) and a fluffy moment between them. And this is what I wrote for her. I hope you enjoy it.
Carol's back was to him when he moved through camp. It was well after midnight, and she should have been in bed a long time ago, but here she stood. He paused a minute in the moonlight and dying embers to really just drink her in. He licked his lips, knowing he'd do just about anything so long as she allowed him to kiss the back of her neck and wrap his arms around her. He cleared his throat then, not wanting to startle her.
When she turned slowly, she had a small smile playing across her lips. She'd known all along that he was there. She moved to him and took his crossbow. She laid it across the chair next to where he stood. "How was watch?"
"Nothing stirrin'," he said softly as she buried her face in his neck, and he wrapped his arms around her tightly. "Glad it's over." So he could be doing more of this. "Why aren't you sleepin'?"
"I was. Woke up and wanted to wait up for you a bit…" she explained softly. She lifted her face up and gave him a soft smile. "You tired? We should lay down…"
He lowered his mouth to hers and kissed her tenderly. "Just a little bit more…" After kissing her mouth, he turned her around like she'd been standing when he walked into camp. He slipped his hands to her trim waist and kissed the back of her neck. When she shivered, he did it again and again. It was getting pretty heated when someone cleared their throat.
They both turned their heads to the left in shock. His grip on her tightened. They were looking right into the eyes of Glenn. He shook his head. "Get a room, Romeo and Juliet. You're scaring the geeks." He grinned, letting them know he was teasing and turned back toward the field from his perch on top of the RV.
