Declaration of love

Jamie had come to stand besi­de me at the win­dow. Sta­ring absent­ly out at the dri­ving rain, he said, “The­re was ano­t­her rea­son. The main one.”
“Rea­son?” I said stu­pidly.
“Why I mar­ried you.”
“Which was?” I don’t know what I expec­ted him to say, perhaps some fur­t­her reve­la­ti­on of his family’s con­tor­ted affairs. What he did say was more of a shock, in its way.
“Becau­se I wan­ted you.” He tur­ned from the win­dow to face me. “More than I ever wan­ted any­thing in my life,” he added soft­ly.

I con­ti­nued sta­ring at him, dumbst­ruck. Wha­te­ver I had been expec­ting, it wasn’t this. See­ing my open­mou­thed expres­si­on, he con­ti­nued light­ly. “When I asked my Da how ye knew which was the right woman, he told me when the time came, I’d have no doubt. And I didn’t. When I woke in the dark under that tree on the road to Leoch, with you sit­ting on my chest, cur­sing me for blee­ding to death, I said to mys­elf, ‘Jamie Fra­ser, for all ye can­na see what she looks like, and for all she weighs as much as a good draft hor­se, this is the woman.’ ”Photo credits to: Starz Outlander

I star­ted toward him, and he backed away, tal­king rapidly. “I said to mys­elf, ‘She’s men­ded ye twice in as many hours, me lad; life amongst the MacKen­zi­es being what it is, it might be as well to wed a woman as can stanch a wound and set bro­ken bones.’ And I said to mys­elf, ‘Jamie, lad, if her touch feels so bon­ny on your col­lar­bo­ne, ima­gi­ne what it might feel like lower down…’ ”
He dod­ged around a chair. “Of cour­se, I thought it might ha’ just been the effects of spen­ding four mon­ths in a monaste­ry, without bene­fit of fema­le com­pa­n­ions­hip, but then that ride through the dark toge­ther” — he pau­sed to sigh thea­tri­cal­ly, neat­ly eva­ding my grab at his slee­ve — “with that lovely broad arse wed­ged bet­ween my thighs” — he ducked a blow aimed at his left ear and sides­tep­ped, get­ting a low table bet­ween us — “and that rock-solid head thum­ping me in the chest” — a small metal orna­ment boun­ced off his own head and went clan­ging to the floor — “I said to mys­elf…”
“Jamie…I said…for all she’s a Sas­se­nach bitch…with a tongue like an adder’s…with a bum like that…what does it mat­ter if she’s a f-face like a sh-sh-sheep?”
I trip­ped him neat­ly and lan­ded on his sto­mach with both knees as he hit the floor with a crash that shook the hou­se.
“You mean to tell me that you mar­ried me out of love?” I deman­ded. He rai­sed his eye­brows, struggling to draw in bre­ath.
“Have I not…just been…saying so?”

Grab­bing me round the shoul­ders with one arm, he wormed the other hand under my skirt and pro­cee­ded to inflict a series of mer­ci­less pin­ches on that part of my ana­to­my he had just been prai­sing.
Retur­ning to pick up her embro­i­de­ry bas­ket, Jen­ny sai­led in at this point and stood eyeing her bro­ther with some amu­se­ment. “And what are you up to, young Jamie me lad?” she inqui­red, one eye­brow up.
“I’m makin’ love to my wife,” he pan­ted, bre­ath­less bet­ween giggling and fighting.
“Well, ye could find a more sui­ta­ble place for it,” she said, rai­sing the other eye­brow. “That floor’ll give ye splin­ters in your arse.”

    Not sure what it is about Jamie Fra­ser that sets us girls on fire… the wri­ting, the idea of him, most of all the way Sam Heu­g­han brought him to life. I’ve read the books and am on my fourth viewing of the series. Obses­sed.
