I accidentally wrote a little ficlet snippet that goes along with this… choose your own ending ;)
She wasn’t sure exactly what had brought her here tonight,
but as Adrien wove a subtle melody alongside her, fingers sliding languidly
across the piano keys, she was glad she had. The tension of weeks past started
melting away, the world around the piano bench disappeared, and she found
herself leaning into him as her eyes drifted shut.
Lost in the comforting swell of the music, she didn’t notice
the slight stutter in the improvised melody, or the way he briefly stiffened,
then relaxed, as her thigh pressed against his. The notes gradually slowed,
though, as her weight confined his left arm. She blinked slowly, the sense of
warmth along her right side the first sensation to enter her awareness before she
realized the music had stopped. She
stammered, righting herself by pressing her hand to his leg, then froze in
shock at the intimate position. Her heart raced as she struggled for something
to say, or a way to unfreeze herself, but he only smiled at her softly.
“I take it you like the melody?” His voice was warm, a
chuckle barely hidden in the way he spoke.
She nodded, eyes transfixed by his, by the tender light she
saw there. She wasn’t sure if her heart was speeding up or slowing down, but
then it stopped altogether as he lifted his hand, gently brushing his
fingertips beneath her chin, his thumb resting just below her lips. He leaned
in closer, his arm wrapped gently around her back, pulling her subtly to him as he tenderly held her shoulder. The comforting warmth, the weight
of his care, had her relaxing into his touch.
“I’m glad,” he murmured, leaning in just a little closer, his gaze dropping down to her lips…
