Finn smiled against her bare shoulder. Secretly, he really liked it when she called him that. “Why did you say I was your hero earlier?” She leaned back with her brows dipped together. “I mean, I love that you said it, and I know you’re my hero because you’re so awesome and talented, but…why am I yours?”
Rachel cupped his face with her tiny hands. “Because you’re a leader,” she explained. “You’re strong and brave and you always try to make everyone happy.” Her thumb glided over his bottom lip as she spoke. He kissed the tip of her finger. She made cute face where her nose scrunched, so he did it twice more. “You’re already so great, and you want to be even better by going after your dream.”
“You really think I can do it?”
He pressed his lips against hers in gratitude and appreciation and just because he loved her.
She wrapped her arms around him and rested her head on his shoulder. “New York is going to be so amazing. We can run lines together and see shows for research and we can find acting classes together! We’ll be so amazing, Finn. I just know it.”
His lips found her neck as he hugged her naked body tightly against him. “Yeah, babe. We will.”
