Drabble #55

Prompt: photo of a paper lantern

Sometimes, they fucked with all the lights on, not wanting any darkness to intrude on each other’s bodies. Sometimes, she lit candles, and they made love until all the wax melted, and they fell asleep in the darkness. But her favorite mood lighting was the paper lantern hanging in the corner of the room. She’d turn everything else off, and the room would be filled with a soft, sexy red glow. Then they would come together, two bodies melding into one in the unfocused light. A little rougher than candle sex, more romantic than lights-on sex. Always preferable to darkness - they always want to see each other’s faces as they come.
