MarathonRiver blew out her breath and plopped down on her bum, she pulled off her boots and started massaging her feet. “Ungh! I am never entering a marathon with you again,” she said.Marathon by Betawhofic
The Doctor ran in place, bouncing lightly, cooling down. Breaths puffing evenly, bowtie still tied. “It wasn’t that bad.”
She glared up at him. “Sweetie, I will do a lot to see you in shorts.” She glared down at his trousers. “But running 10 kilometers among a group of aliens who consider surviving the race to be an accomplishment, that’s a bit much.”
He grinned at her. “They are a bit cutthroat. You held your own, though.” He beamed down at her with pride.
“It’s not the knives that bothered me, it was the bombs, and pit traps, and tacks!” She glared down at the sole of her foot and rubbed at the red spot there.
He grinned down at his exhausted wife. She looked like an adorable and rather aggressive kit
BackrubThe Doctor gives River a backrub. Sort of.Backrub by Betawhofic
The Doctor dug his thumbs into River’s scapula and pushed upward.
He slid his hand under her shoulder and pulled back lightly, pressing on her back. She squirmed.
He slid his hands over her tight shoulder, massaging with strong thumbs and fingers, digging in.
He slid his hands up her back, wide across her smooth shoulders, then continued, sliding one large hand up the underside of her arm, stretching her arm up over her head, his hand warm on her satiny skin.
He turned her forearm up, slid his hand up the delicate skin on the underside, and laced his fingers with hers, palm to palm.
Her breath caught.
He pulled up on her hand, and something clicked.
She cussed, and bucked and swore at him. He massaged her shoulder, brushing her hair out of his way.
“Really, River, next time I fall off a cliff, just let me.”
Lullaby“Lullaby, and good night,” River’s soft, throaty voice crooned.Lullaby by Betawhofic
“Go to sleep, sexy husband.” The Doctor grinned, eyes closed, head lying in her lap.
“Lullaby, and good night,”
“Go to sleep my gentle one,” she brushed her fingers through his hair, and he snuggled his cheek against her thigh.
“Close your eyes, deeply sighs,
And the moonlight will keep you,
Gentle mists, softly kissed,
She bent down and kissed his head.
He murmured and rubbed his cheek against her thigh.
