My crashing point came on the fourth day without sleep. Three to four days is typical for me before the body overrides the mind and says, enough. Then, all I want is to close my eyes and sleep forever. I’d settle for 8 hours..
My eyelids heavy, I snuggled under the covers. It took a moment for his touch to register. “Please let me sleep.”
His hand moved softly down my skin as his kisses trailed my neck and shoulder. His face replaced the fog of sleep and I turned to him.
Who needs it, sleep’s overrated anyway.

Nicely written… if you keep going, we might discover a fifty-first shade of Grey.
Thank you Loretta. I’m so happy you liked it. I don’t know about the 51st Shade of Gray – mine is probably a bit tame, or so I heard. 🙂
