Quote taken from The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 40, "Duncan's Secret." Copyright© 2001 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

"It wasn’t so much an amorous encounter I wanted—though I would certainly not say no, if the opportunity offered. What I missed was simply the feel of his body next to mine; being able to reach out a hand in the dark and rest it on the long swell of his thigh; to roll toward him in the morning and cup his round, neat buttocks in the curve of thigh and belly; to press my cheek against his back and breathe the scent of his skin as I slipped into sleep.

'Damn,' I said, resting my forehead briefly in the folds of his shirt ruffle, and inhaling the mingled scents of starch and man with longing.

[> Quotes like this are like odes to long term relationships. The feeling of belonging, the briefest touch having multitude of meaning. I can say I've learnt to appreciate my own relationship by reading quotes like this. Thank you Lady Jane :) -- Helka, 11:25:52 04/09/15 Thu
