As the morning's light began to stream through the skylight, Amy enjoyed the warmth and the softness of the body beneath her, breathing in that scent that was so essentially Amélie before she looked up and saw golden eyes shining down at her. "I think I understand why Leah keeps waking up like this a bit better, now."
Amélie laughed softly, and she felt Leah stirring before her head poked up from where she'd snuggled against Amélie's back. "You can't blame me, really."
"No, no indeed..." Amy snuggled back in as Amélie ran a hand along her back, and sighed happily. "Any objections to just...staying like this for a little while?"
"None," Amélie assured her.READ MORE
"I like this plan," Leah agreed, "but...we were going to talk a bit." There was a nervous edge in her voice that made Amy look up, moving more toward the headboard so they could talk a bit easier.
"Lady..." Leah paused, wetting her lips nervously. "Amy...this was a lot more than just one night, or because you were in heat, right? We're all a bit past 'just friends' now, aren't we?" She turned to look up at Amélie. "I mean...that is...if you want to be."
Amélie reached out with the hand that was not already occupied and tenderly stroked the side of Leah's face. "There is a part of me that began falling in love with you the night you told me not to give up on my heart...and Amy from the moment I saw how kind she was, and how open." She leaned toward Leah, giving her a gentle kiss. "Yes. I want."
Amy lightly kissed Amélie on her cheek. "So do we." A thought struck her, bringing a wave of sadness with it as she turned to tuck herself into Amélie's side, her arm wrapping tightly around her. "But you know this is just going to keep getting harder. We'll keep leaving you. I know you've been alone, and I know you can get by...but please, let us try to help? You deserve so much more than to keep hiding."
Leah's arm brushed against hers as she hugged Amélie as well. "If you say no, we won't stop caring about you—we won't stop wanting to be with you...but...Amy's right. You shouldn't have to feel like you're our dirty little secret."
Amélie had gone almost completely still, even the slow rise and fall of her breathing barely noticeable as she closed her eyes. "I told you once that my side has never mattered...but when you hold me like this...when you tell me how you want to fight for me..." She couldn't really move much with the pair of them holding her tight, but the look in her eyes as she opened them spoke volumes for how she was feeling in that moment. "I start to believe that it can change. And when you say I deserve more...I start to think that perhaps I could."
Amy barely felt able to breathe. "Then...yes?"
Amélie gave them a sad smile, but for the first time in so long her eyes were filled with hope. "Oui."COLLAPSE
Outcast’s Song is the bonfire to the slow burn of Orphan’s Cry.
The story is artfully crafted to keep the reader in suspense until the final moments, and the steamy scenes are both sexy and sweet. I loved both the romance and queerness that flow so naturally from the pages. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride!
