The following quote is from Dragonfly in Amberby Diana Gabaldon, chapter 29, “To Grasp the Nettle.” Copyright 1992 by Diana Gabaldon, all rights reserved.

“‘Never,’ he whispered to me, face only inches from mine.
‘Never,’ I said, and turned my head, closing my eyes to escape the intensity of his gaze.
A gentle, inexorable pressure turned me back to face him, as the small, rhythmic movements went on.
‘No, my Sassenach,’ he said softly. ‘Open your eyes. Look at me. For that is your punishment, as it is mine. See what you have done to me, as I know what I have done to you. Look at me.’
And I looked, held prisoner, bound to him. Looked, as he dropped the last of his masks, and showed me the depths of himself, and the wounds of his soul. I would have wept for his hurt, and for mine, had I been able. But his eyes held mine, tearless and open, boundless as the salt sea. His body held mine captive, driving me before his strength, like the west wind in the sails of a bark.
And I voyaged into him, as he into me, so that when the last small storms of love began to shake me, he cried out, and we rode the waves together as one flesh, and saw ourselves in each other’s eyes.”

[> Oh, my - it's a bit warm for January! :D This is after her, um, meeting with the King to get him released? I like how they always reconnect physically, but it's a shame that her worth as collateral for him is limited to sex. -- kgp, Mon, January 15 2024, 8:06:39
