Colours of the Rain: Opening Scene

She wakes, slowly, from a dreamless sleep.  She found herself alone in bed.  She focused on the window first. The bed was right beside the window. It was raining out. She watched as rain drops hit the glass and then rolled down.  She reached out and touched the window, tracing the rolling water.
Finally she stretched and turned over, facing the rest of the room.  She could smell coffee, and she thought about getting up to get some.
He was sitting on the chair, sipping his coffee.  He looked toward her, noticing her movement.  He smiled at her.  She smiled back, in an almost sad smile. She turned back to the window watching the rain.  Behind the window the city was grey.  On a clear day she could see people below walking.
She felt his weight on the bed behind her.  He lifted her into his lap.  She smiled and snuggled into his lap. He hugged her close.
His clothes scratched against her naked skin.  She pulled the blanket up over her breasts.  He pulled it away.
She let out a small laugh as she arched her back, pushing her head back and looked up at him.
He cupped her breasts with her hands, running his thumbs in circles around her nipples.
She watched his pale hands, somehow darker than her pale skin.
Tears flowed out of her eyes and down her cheeks.  Her skin mirroring the window in front of them.  She lifted her hand and wiped them away.
He twisted, peering down at her face.  His hair brushed against over face, sticking in the tears. “Are you crying?”
She nodded, sniffling, wishing they would stop.
His fingers stilled.  He held her in silence for a while.
“Why are you crying?”
“Because I’m lucky.  Because I love you.”
He kissed the top of her head.  “You know I love you too.”
“I know.  But I like to hear it.”
He kissed her head again.
