The sun crept through the crack between the closed blinds, casting a single ray of light on the two forms curled together. The silence was broken by a growl, but not one from an animal. Instead it came from the shorter of the two, one hazel eye opening to glare at the offending presence.
The ray of light highlighted the smallest specks of dust in the air, objects in the room casting new shadows as the ray got brighter.
"DAMN IT!" The bed erupted as the shorter form threw the blankets back, rolling out of bed. Stalking over to the window she tugged on the curtain till all light was shut out. Stalking back to the bed, she haphazardly fell into it, pulling the covers back over her.
There was a moment of silence before her partner spoke. "Feel better, Cosima?" Delphine pulled the woman back against her, brushing her lips across the woman's forehead.
Cosima growled again. "Is it too much to want to sleep in on my day off?"
Delphine couldn't help smiling as she smoothed back the woman's brown hair, taking a moment to think about the dreads she'd loved so much years ago. Of course she didn't miss getting whipped by them as she often did in their younger years. "Normally? Non. Today? Oui." She whispered, slipping a hand under the woman's tank top and gently stroking her stomach.
Cosima smiled as lips met her own. She caressed the soft cheek, not needing light as she traced a familiar path down the woman's body, having memorized every dip and curve. The sound of running footsteps brought a whimper from her as the blonde pulled away just as the door burst open.
"Mommy! Mama!" The small girl launched itself onto the bed. "Wake up!"
Cosima grunted as the soft touches disappeared and she caught a tiny elbow to the stomach. "Hey, dude. Watch where you're swinging those elbows."
"Sorry." She grinned as she bat her long lashes.
Delphine smiled as she smoothed back the girl's long brown hair much as she was doing to her partner just minutes ago. "Bonjour, Angelique."
"Bonjour, Mama." The girl repeated.
Cosima pulled the blanket over her head.
"Aren't you normally still asleep at this time?"
"Wake up!" The girl giggled as she pulled the blanket back down. "We're gonna be late."
Sticking her tongue out at the young girl, Cosima sighed heavily. "I'm pretty sure the park is open all day."
"Of course it is!" The girl responded dramatically. "Dude! That's so we can SPEND all day there." The girl slipped out of bed and put her hands on her hips. "Mickey mouse waits for no one." She added before striding out with purpose.
Cosima covered her eyes.
With a laugh, Delphine hugged her tightly, nipping her earlobe. "This is your doing." Nibbles turned into kisses. "I wanted a little princess and you turned her into a smart ass."
With a wide grin, Cosima pulled the covers back up and over both off them. "We can always try again."
Delphine thought about that and smiled. "With my luck she will be another copy of you." With a content sigh, she gave the woman one final kiss. "C'mon before miss bossy returns." She slipped out of bed and stretched. "Share a shower with me?"
Needing no further prompting, Cosima jumped out of bed and pulled the blonde towards their bathroom.
