Her hands frame his cheeks and those dark chocolate eyes he adores so much look intently into his. “Every part of you, Lucas,” she says. “Even the parts of you, you think are hard to love. I love.”
He squeezes his eyes shut briefly at the intense emotion that courses through him at the declaration. She snuggles in to him with another sigh and he wraps his arms around her.
