Summary: A 100-word drabble on “Smell” for supernatural100.
Jess presses against him at night, her hair floating up toward his face, his chin. He inhales that sweet feeling of closeness, of wanting and belonging.
She loves him completely, both present and future. But if he left her, he knows she’d survive. It would hurt, and it might be heartbreaking, but she would make it and be stronger for it in the end.
It’s a relief, after what he left behind. He’s important, but isn’t everything. It lets him breathe.
There’s a freedom in knowing you can leave. The irony is that knowing that means you won’t want to.
