This week, my swoon is from Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine!
(A horrible explosion just happened in the factory. Wen and Melik have found their way back to each other.)
As he reaches for me, I raise my arms, and then my feet aren't touching the ground. He scoops me up, bowing his head into the crook of my neck. He squeezes me so tightly I can barely breathe... [...] "I knew you were alive. I knew it. I knew it." His hand is in my hair, and his forehead is again mine, and -
The touch of his lips is shocking to me. Not because it is completely inappropriate, although it is, and not because I am afraid people are watching, although I should be. What shocks me is how much I want it, after all these hours of worry and all these days of wishing. What shocks me is my hunger for him. Melik's mouth is on mine, and it is soft and warm and overwhelming and delicious. He is everywhere, all around me, holding me again his lean, hard-muscled body. He smells of ashes and sweat and it's him and I need it.
