Re: Boat dreams: Athelstan/Ragnar
Ragnar smiled. “I am. It is the best place to be.” Even if it was a dream he felt at peace. As Athelstan turned a little closer, he slid his arm around him as he used to so long ago.
“I am dreaming, though. I have dreamt of you before, but it has been many years. I am glad to be dreaming of you again. I don’t know how long it-“ Ragnar stopped, swallowing, his eyes stinging all the more. He turned his head and pressed his lips into the curls.
“I hope I never wake up,” he murmured. “Much has changed, my friend. So much. I have a job looking after old things that belonged to my people. I write about them. People ask me opinions and I go to meetings-“ Ragnar huffed a laugh. “I am happier now than I have been in a thousand years.”
He moved around behind Athelstan, using both arms to embrace him, his cheek resting against his hair. “How is your God? Are you safe?”
