Heaven

Work Text:

As Cullen lay sleeping, wrapped in Dorian’s embrace, another song began to drift into his mind from across the Fade. Cullen began humming the tune in his sleep, gradually waking Dorian from his own Fade dreams.

Dorian looked down at his new lover, marveling at how much younger he looked when he slept. The tune he hummed was lovely and made Dorian plant a kiss upon Cullen’s lips, gently waking him.

Cullen looked up into Dorian’s storm-grey eyes, shining brightly down at him, and his mouth spread into a warm smile.

“You were humming a new tune, Amatus,” Dorian whispered. “Did a new song come to you?”

“Yes, as a matter of fact it did. Shall I sing it for you?” Cullen asked, sitting up and looking down at Dorian.

“Oh, please do,” Dorian nodded, propping himself up against some pillows.

Cullen cleared his throat, taking Dorian’s hands in his, and began to sing.

Baby, you're all that I want
When you're lyin' here in my arms
I'm findin' it hard to believe
We're in heaven

And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven

Dorian looked enraptured as Cullen’s dulcet tones filled his quarters. Yet another strange, but wonderful tune spilling from his lover’s lips.

Oh - once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you're feelin' down

Yeah - nothin' could change what you mean to me
Oh there's lots that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

“Oh Amatus,” Dorian breathed at the words Cullen sang. Sang so full of sincerity, and sang only for him.

I've been waitin' for so long
For somethin' to arrive
For love to come along

Now our dreams are comin' true
Through the good times and the bad
Yeah - I'll be standin' there by you

Dorian was once again overcome with feelings of love and devotion for this wonderful man serenading him, tears welling in his eyes.

And baby, you're all that I want
When you're lyin' here in my arms
I'm findin' it hard to believe
We're in heaven

And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven, heaven, oooh

Cullen then lay back down next to Dorian, who wrapped his arms around him, drawing him closer. “Oh my love,” he whispered, "that was beautiful." Dorian then drew Cullen in for a kiss that hopefully conveyed as much emotion as the song Cullen had just sung for him had.
