“Wake up,” the gruff voice sounded pulling her into the morning much like it did every morning. Just like every morning, she turned and looked out the window at the dark sky before the sun was up. The point in the morning where the rejuvenation of the darkness was reaching it's point of completion and the night's work would be enjoyed by all in the light of the sun. She felt the bonds of the night loosen from around her and she sighed. “Get up, Adler,” the voice said. Adler Donovan felt a strong hand pulling her forward. “Do you need my help?”
“No, Matty. Thank you,” Adler said. Matt Donovan kissed her lips lightly and allowed her to pass and climb the basement stairs and go up to the bathroom in their bedroom. Adler started the shower and disrobed. She examined her body in the mirror. The red marks around her wrists and ankles and across her backside and hairless mound. Matty had been a little more rough than usual but she liked it. He had pushed her to the point of ultimate pleasure and caused her to fall asleep while still bonded.
She stepped into the hot shower and let the water cascade over her reddened skin. After she was clean, she stepped out and her husband was there waiting with a towel.
“Good shower?” he asked as he dried her body.
“Yeah, but I spent the entire time trying to figure how I'm going to cover these marks,” she said showing him her wrists. “Long pants will cover the ones on my ankles.”
“I'm sorry baby,” Matt said kissing each of her wrists. “Long sleeves?” he suggested. She couldn't help but smile at him.
“That'll work,” she said as she walked naked to their shared walk-in closet. Matt leaned in the doorway and watched her select her clothes for the day. “Did you get Gen up?”
“I did,” he nodded, hie eyes still roving her body.
Adler was five foot three, long chocolate brown hair and light brown skin. Her butter pecan brown eyes were almond shaped and her lips were two plump line of dark pink. She had curves for days and large perky breasts and a firm ass.
“Go back to sleep,” she said once she was dressed. “I'll see you for lunch,” Adler said with a kiss to his lips. He smacked her ass as she passed him. She squealed and winked at him over her shoulder. “Go to sleep, Matty,” she said pulling the door shut. Matt chuckled as he laid down in his comfortable Sleep Number bed. His mind did what it always did right before he drifted off to sleep; churned. He didn't mind it because the only things that were ever on his mind were Adler and their life together.
When Matt met Adler she was working as a waitress and paying her way through college. They had connected instantly.
He met her when his life was making a turn for, what he knows now is, the better. Elena was human again, Ric and Jo were married with twins, Caroline and Stefan had gotten over the weirdness she caused with the whole “I-turned-off-my-humanity-because-you-didn't-like-me-so-you-should-turn-yours-off-too-and-then-we-should-try-to-kill-our-friends” thing and they were finally able to talk and realize that Caroline was just starved for attention because she had told Klaus that she loved him but then he left and she never saw him again and she missed him so she had just thrown all of her feelings for him onto Stefan who had realized that he had thrown all of the feelings he thought he has lost for Elena on to Caroline. Eventually, after it was all sorted out, Caroline moved to New Orleans and Stefan and Elena got back together. (Which for the record, Matt knew would happen. Stefan was the Salvatore that made Elena want to be a better person and be the Elena he knew. Not Damon.) Tyler and Liv moved back to Oregon. It was good for Ty. He needed someone who was going to love him; douchebag and all. Bonnie and Damon, in a wacky turn of events, fell in love in that prison world and with Stefan and Elena encouraging (meddling and matchmaking) the relationship, they've been dating for a while now.
That just left Matt. Like it always did; but one day his luck changed and it was Damon of all people who played the biggest hand in it.
