Today, I don’t want to adult. I wanted to stay in bed until I had to get up due to reasons other than my day job.
From Protector of the Grey House:
It was such a simple command, such a simple action. There was more there than what she had previously assumed. Why he wanted her to leave her hair alone was still beyond her scope of understanding, but she knew it wasn’t a control factor as she had originally thought. He did that at times, asked her not to do something to test his dominance. If she felt like playing along, she would obey. If she didn’t, she would laugh and tease him with her own dominance. They both enjoyed the game. The look in his eye and the tone of his voice did not suggest dominance; it suggested subservience, which was far more intriguing.
“What do you wish to do?” Her hands relaxed in her lap, and his hand rested over hers.
