A Breath of Hope

Chapter Five

Rick folds her into his arms and closes his eyes, breathing in her scent to block out everything but Maggie. He holds her close and gradually begins to feel the tension recede from his weary bones. With a heavy sigh, he begins to feel lighter than he has in ages, and he suddenly realizes that she is his sanctuary, not the prison. The prison was a collection of mortar and stone that kept them safe from walkers and comfortable in bad weather. It was their house for a while but it was never home. Maggie is his home, and as long as she is by his side he knows he can get through anything. She is the one that got him through his stint in Crazy Town after Lori died. They will get through this together.

Kissing the side of her head, he whispers against her hair, "I'm sorry. It's okay, honey, we're gonna be okay. We'll get through this."

She lifts her head to search his eyes for the truth and sees nothing but love gazing back at her. His hands come up to wipe the tears from her cheeks and he finds her staring at his mouth.

Unable to resist the desire in her eyes, he lowers his head to press his mouth to hers. Their lips meet tentatively at first, a gentle pressure with a hint of nervousness. He kisses her lightly – testing, tempting, so anxious and eager, learning the soft contours of her lovely lips and hoping like hell they won't regret this.

Rick pulls back to look deeply into her eyes.With questioning brows, he soundlessly asks, Are you sure you want this?

With a barely perceptible nod, she wordlessly answers, With all my heart.

Their lips crash together with all the passion in their souls, letting go of all the craziness and misery of the world outside this room. Their hands are everywhere all at once – in his hair, on her hips, clutching his shoulders, squeezing her ass then lifting her leg over his right hip to press his growing arousal into the cleft between her legs. She moans softly as he tilts his head to deepen the kiss and explore her mouth with his inquisitive tongue. She glides her tongue along his in an age old dance - dipping, caressing, tasting… loving. Their timeless waltz continues as their hearts begin to pound and their bodies begin to react to the wants and needs of each other.

Maggie breaks the kiss and leans back abruptly, breathlessly saying, "Wait, stop."

Rick's hands fly away from her body as if they had been burned. "I'm sorry, I'm so sorry, I knew you weren't ready but you're so damn beautiful…," he stammers quickly, the words crashing into and over each other.

The boyishly innocent look on his crestfallen face almost makes her laugh, but she just silences him with a smile and one long, slender finger against his lips. "I am ready, but I've been waiting for this for a long time and I don't want any interruptions."

With that she walks over to the bedroom door, closes it ever so quietly and turns the lock. She strolls back over to Rick who is extremely grateful to have been mistaken. She puts her arms around his neck and presses her lips to his. His arms snake around her waist to pull her closer.

"Do you have any idea what you do to me?" he whispers against her mouth.

"Uh huh," she breathes with a mischievous grin as she presses her mid-section against his erection.

"Oh God," he moans as he claims her mouth again. She tastes like grapes, cereal and hope. Their passion still burns but with less frenetic energy as he savors the fact that Maggie is in his arms. His hands travel slowly from her waist, up her sides, skimming her slender ribcage and coming to rest on her breasts.

Maggie runs her fingers through his dark, unruly hair and then down his back to the hem of his tee shirt. Carefully, she pulls it up and over his head, being mindful of his injuries, and lets it fall to the floor behind him. Tracing her fingers thru the silky hair on his chest, she openly admires his strong physique.

Her shirt soon joins his as it falls from his fingertips onto the soft carpet. As she stands half naked before him, it isn't her bare chest that he is looking at with longing, but into her warm green eyes when he says with all the sincerity in his soul, "I love you, Maggie."

"I love you, too," she responds with her heart in her throat.

In a flurry of kisses and caresses, the rest of their clothes are shed until they are on the bed with Maggie straddling him. She moans into his mouth as he works a finger inside her sensitive folds.Adding a second finger, he slowly moves them in and out while his other hand massages her breast, teasing the soft peak into a tight bud.

Their mouths connect in a series of breathless kisses until she reaches down between them to stroke his hardened length. He inhales at the contact.It’s been a long time since he's felt anything this good and all he wants to do is lose himself in this woman, but an ounce of sanity worms its way into his muddled brain. "Maggie wait, maybe we shouldn't start something we can't finish. I'm not takin' a chance of getting you pregnant."

"Don't worry." She plants a quick kiss on his lips and leaves him to walk into the bathroom.Turning back toward the bed with her hand closed around her bounty, her steps almost falter at the sight before her. Rick Grimes in jeans and his standard plaid button up is gorgeous. Rick Grimes in her bed naked and aroused is downright beautiful.

"What'd you find?"

She answers him by tossing five foil packets onto the bed beside him.

"Holy shit, I'm fucked."

"Mmmm, exactly," she responds while opening one of the condoms.

Instead of putting the rubber on him right away, she places it on his flat stomach and gives him a devilish grin that promises all kinds of wondrous sin. With a gleam in her eyes, she leans over and licks his cock from the base to the tip, swirling her tongue over the slit before taking him into her mouth completely.

"Nnnnn… oh, baby," he moans as his hands find themselves cradling her head.

She wraps one hand around his thickness and glides it up and down, following the path of her mouth. Her other hand cups his balls, gently squeezing the heaviness which elicits another deep groan from his diaphragm.

As her mouth and hands continue to give him incredible pleasure, he brushes her hair back behind her ear, giving himself an unobstructed view of her beautiful jawline and all that it is doing to him. She peers up at him and softly hums when their eyes meet, sending erotic vibrations straight through his shaft.

"God, honey, you're gonna make me come already."

One final pull and she lets him slide out of her mouth to crawl up his body. "I want you inside me, I need you."

She hands him the condom and leans back while he rolls it on. Straddling him again she brings his length to her entrance and slowly eases herself down, inch by glorious inch. She wants him hard and fast but she takes her time, cherishing every second it takes to get acclimated to his size until he is filling her completely.

"Oh my God, you feel so good," Maggie purrs.

With her hands on his chest, she begins to move up and down, slowly at first, savoring the feel of him inside her. She quickens the pace and they find a rhythm together, losing themselves in the magic of becoming one. One heart, one body, one soul.

"Oh Christ, slow down. You're so tight, I'm never gonna last."

She stops moving to grind her pelvis into his. Sitting up, he wraps a muscular arm around her waist, anchoring her to him. He finds her mouth for a long greedy kiss and then works his way down her neck, grazing is tongue and teeth over her collarbone until she is stretched back over his arm while he caresses her full breast and sucks on the tight bud.

Unable to move within his unyielding embrace, she just holds onto him dearly, running her hands through his wavy hair while securing his mouth to her chest. He sweeps her nipples with his tongue, alternating between the two peaks and driving her mad in the process. She has never had a man so deep inside her and every cell in her body is aching to find relief from the wonderful pressure that is collecting at her core.

She is about to beg when he finally lies back down and lets her ride him, seeking the relief her body is craving. She increases her rhythm, the indescribable pressure building and building, surging up and reaching out for that final climax.

"Oh God, I'm close," she pants.

"That's it, baby, come for me."

He rubs a thumb across her swollen clit and she cries his name on the edge of her release, her back arching as she digs her nails into his thighs, shuddering with wave after wave of incredible sensation while he continues to thrust into her. The exquisite look on her face has him chasing his own orgasm a moment later.

She collapses on his chest with trembling legs as she floats back down from the heavens.Completely spent, she struggles to catch her breath while her heart tries to return to its normal even tempo.

"Oouuuch…," she hears rumble from deep in his chest followed by a light chuckle.

"Oh shit," she quickly sits up and tries to extricate herself from his body, only to have Rick tighten his arms around her back, pulling her down to lay flush against him once again, skin to skin.

"Rick, I'm hurting you!"

"It's ok. It never hurt so good." He smiles while his heart is practically beating out of his chest.

"Rick!" She tries another futile attempt to separate from him again.

"It's fine, just let me hold you."

"My God, you're stubborn as a mule!" She complains.

"Sorry, haven't we met before? Hi, I'm Rick," he teases with cheeky sarcasm.

Exasperated at his infamous stubbornness, she gently nestles into his arms and tries not to move anything that could aggravate his injuries any more than she already has.

After a time she feels his heart beating normally and his chest rise and fall on steady breaths. She silently slips out of his arms to clean them both up and then snuggles back to his side, pulling the blanket over them and placing her forehead against his shoulder.

"Hey…," he whispers sleepily in the now darkened room.


"Thanks for bringing me back."

"It was my pleasure." She smiles serenely. "I love you, Rick."

"Love you, too, honey," he murmurs before drifting back down to wherever his dreams may take him.
