Sure Can Smell The Rain

Chapter Text

September 19, 2013

After finishing her lunch, Avery stood from the couch and went into the living room to throw her trash away, though on the way back to the living room she paused in her steps at the window as she saw Daryl pulling into the drive way an eyebrow raising a bit.

There was no way he'd be back here now if he had went to have lunch with Natalie so she was curious on why he was home. But maybe he had forgotten something else and had just realized it.

Shaking her head she moved from where she stood as she headed back into the living room and she had just gotten sat back down when the door opened as Daryl stepped inside.

"Thought you had lunch with a friend?" Avery questioned as she turned to face him though her raised eyebrow got a bit higher when she saw a single red rose in his hand as he faced her after shutting the door behind himself. "What is that?" she asked another question as she watched him walk a bit closer to the couch.

"A gift for you," Daryl told her as he held the flower out once he was closer to where she was. "Kind of felt guilty for how I've been treating you this week and I just wanted you to know I still love you."

Falling silent at his words Avery took the rose from him before feeling a lump in her throat and god she hated to admit it but she was going to cry. She was going to cry and she almost wasn't sure she'd be able to stop once she did start. The tears being because maybe she had been more afraid than she had let on that their marriage was in trouble..that she'd lose her husband.

"I still love you too," Avery spoke as her voice cracked slightly as she felt Daryl sit down beside her on the couch. "But..I just..I was so scared," she admitted as she felt a few tears go down her cheek and she reached up with her free hand to wipe them away. "I thought I was losing you."

Hearing Daryl heave a sigh as he reached over to take her free hand after she had wiped her cheeks, she looked back up at him knowing from the way he looked and the sigh that he wanted to say something but obviously he was searching for the words.

A fact that made her even more happier than the rose because if he was searching for words then maybe hopefully they could work through this and get back to where they were. Get past this small bump in the road that was their marriage.

"You weren't losing me," Daryl finally said as he squeezed her hand. "I was just an asshole and I know it," he laughed slightly. "Finding out you had been engaged to Chet, I just didn't see why in the end you choose to stay with me even with a baby on the way. You could have aborted the baby before I even knew or you could have passed it off as Chet's. Chet's a man who could...he could give you everything you wanted and I can't. Plus he's closer to your age and all your friends actually like him. They can stand to be around him and don't make complaints about how they wish you'd leave him like they do with me when they think I'm not listening."

Listening to Daryl as he spoke Avery fought the urge to roll her eyes because she didn't want him to think that she thought he was stupid for feeling like he did. She didn't think it and in fact she understood it but she also knew there was a lot he didn't know.

Shaking her head once Daryl finished speaking she brought their joined hand up to her lips and kissed his hand softly before speaking. "I never went back to Chet because he cheated on me," she sighed as she shook her head. "The same week he had asked me to marry him was the same week I found out he cheated with Shae and I knew if I went back it would just be the same so yeah maybe he could give me a lavish life style but he can't give me everything," she said as she gave Daryl a tiny smile. "He can't fully love me like you can and honestly I don't care what my friends say because they don't know how good you are. They don't get to see you in moments like this where you bring me home a rose or how you are an amazing father to our son and have been since before he was born."

Daryl looked down at Avery's words and Avery couldn't help but smile more when she saw him blushing and trying to act all shy. It was always kind of adorable that he'd never been able to take compliments much. "I love you Daryl and I don't regret any decision not to go back to Chet," she muttered as she leaned in and left a light kiss on his cheek. "I don't regret how I got here and I'm never going to regret being your wife."

"I'm a dick," Daryl finally spoke as he looked back up at Avery. "Such a fucking dick."

Laughing softly Avery let go of his hand as she nodded her head, "Yeah, you kind of are but you're my dick," she told him with a smirk before standing from the couch, "And I think I'll keep you for a bit longer," she winked before going to find something to put the rose in and once she had found a vase in the kitchen, she put the rose inside of it.

A smile playing on her lips at the sight once she had. It was pretty and such a sweet gesture on her husband's part. There was no way he was fully a dick even if he had his moments. He was just kind of a dick and she did mean it when she said she'd keep him a bit longer. She'd keep him forever.

As she stood there though admiring the rose, Avery closed her eyes as she smiled more when she felt arms wrap around her waist as well as the prickly feeling against her cheek from Daryl's stubble. It felt nice to be in his arms again and she hadn't realized a week could feel like forever when it came to not being in his arms.

"I love you," Daryl muttered into her ear as his breath hit the skin of her earlobe and Avery felt a shiver run down her spine at the sensations. "I love you and I'm sorry for the past week."

Opening her eyes, Avery turned her head to look at him, "I forgive you," she spoke as she locked eyes with him before turning around in his arms, her arms going around his neck. "I forgive you and I love you and I want to show you how much I do," she smirked slightly as she leaned in to kiss him on the lips after she had spoken.

Feeling Daryl kissing her back, Avery moved a bit closer to him, letting out a tiny moan as the hand that he had around her waist slowly worked it's way up the back of her shirt. Goosebumps soon forming on her skin at his touch.

Kissing him a bit harder at that, Avery let her arms move from his neck as her hands found their way down to the hem of his shirt and once they had reached their destination she pulled away from the kiss before pulling his shirt off and throwing it to the floor.

After it was gone she then pulled him into another kiss and again a moan came out of her mouth as he bit down on her bottom lip.

"Are we really doing this here?" Daryl asked in between kisses his voice getting all soft in ways that made Avery feel almost weak.

"Why not here?" Avery asked as she pulled away from the kiss again and looked him in the eyes. "Don't believe in having sex in any other room but the bedroom?" she questioned with a hint of teasing to her voice and before he could respond her lips moved to his neck where she kissed and sucked on the flesh softly, which made Daryl moan out as his hand which wasn't under her shirt went up and tangled into her hair pulling on it slightly.

Letting her tongue come out eventually, Avery ran it over the skin on his neck gently as she let her lips begin to move away from his neck, going farther south until she wound up down on her knees in front of him and the moment she did she pulled away to look at him innocently as she undid his jeans slowly, watching as his stomach went in some as his breath hitched. Clearly realizing what she was going to do.

She hadn't ever given him a blow job mainly because he had never asked for one and Avery had never been sure of his stance on them. But ever since Taylor's wedding when he had eaten her pussy he had continued to do so every so often and now well she really wanted to return the favor as well as really showing him how much she loved him.

She loved him enough to suck his cock and willingly give him a blow job which was something she hadn't really ever liked doing before.

Daryl felt his breath hitch as Avery undid his jeans which was when it dawned him on what she was going to do, which in all aspects maybe it should have hit him when she dropped to her knees but it didn't because he could be a little slow at times.

"Are you sure about this?" he asked her as he looked down at her, seeing her look up all innocent even if she was anything but, especially right now. "I mean you don't..."

"I want too," Avery told him before he could even finish his sentence and he fell silent at that because of how sure she sounded. So he just stood there and looked down at her still as she pushed his jeans and boxers off, before moving just a bit to step out of them.

Though right after he did, he wasn't sure he would be able to move much more. Not when her hand had went around his cock and she was stroking him, making him harder than what he already had been.

Letting out a moan as her hand movements became faster, all Daryl could really do was watch her and when she must have felt his eyes on her, she looked back up at him again.

"Don't look so innocent," he spoke through a moan as they locked eyes. "You're far from it right now."

Avery batted her eyelashes slightly as she gave Daryl a tiny wink, "I'm always innocent baby," she told him but before he could reply or even think of one her mouth had finally went around his cock and all his thoughts were rendered useless just like the only sound that came out of his mouth was one long moan.

She had never gave him a blow job before, mainly because he had never asked her too and also because he wasn't a huge fan of them...or at least he had never been a huge fan of the ones he had gotten from the women Merle had put him with in the past.

But the way Avery was moving her mouth around him, like she knew what she was doing. Well maybe he could become a fan of them at this rate.

"Fuck....Avie," Daryl muttered as he let his hand go down to tangle in her hair as the movements she was doing with her mouth picked up slightly and Daryl swore he was in some kind of heaven. A lust fucking filled heaven and he wasn't sure he wanted to come back to reality anytime soon. "So good with your mouth baby," he sighed as he pulled on her hair some.

The hair pulling it seemed was an action that caused Avery to moan around him and the moan was one he could feel against his dick thanks to vibrations and before he knew it, his head has fallen back against his will as his eyes fell shut.

He was sure if she kept this up he'd come quicker than he normally did and he wasn't so sure this was how she wanted him to get off.

Hell he wasn't sure himself that he wanted to get off like this either. Not when they hadn't had sex in a week and he kind of wanted to just be inside of her. Be as close to her as he could possibly get.

"I'm getting close already baby," Daryl told her as he finally found words to speak before looking down at Avery. "Kind of wanted to get off another way though," he said watching as she moved away after his words.

Avery who had heard Daryl, pulled away from him when he said he wanted to get off another way and it took a moment for his words to fully register even after she had pulled away. But when they had, she stood up slowly and pulled him into another kiss as her hand fell between them, pumping his cock even as his hands found their way to the jeans she had on.

Once he had unzipped her jeans, Avery slowed her hand some as she kissed him a bit hard as he removed her jeans and once they were off she resumed her hands movements for a bit. At least until she felt him beginning to back her towards the counter next to the sink.

Where when they reached their destination she bit down on his lip softly as he lifted her up onto the counter before working to remove her underwear. A slight moan escaping her mouth when he bare ass felt the cool counter top below it.

"Going to need you to fuck me so hard right now," Avery spoke as she pulled away from the kiss and looked her husband in the eye. "You think you can do that?"

Daryl just gave her a smirk as he slowly pulled her a bit closer to the edge before lining up with her wet opening, her anticipation building slightly as he did so. "I'm pretty sure I can," he said his voice going a bit deeper before he finally entered her and the moment he did Avery let out a semi loud moan that surprised even herself.

But it probably shouldn't have. It had been a week since he had been inside of her and she had missed it. Missed him in general and just being so close to him.

"I love you," Avery muttered out as he started to move inside of her, her hands going to rest on his bare ass cheeks. "I love you so god damn much."

"I love you too baby," Daryl sighed out as his lips found hers again in a heated kiss and Avery returned it, letting herself finally move with Daryl, her whole body sort of just going with the flow of things while also relishing finally being with him again. Being in the arms of the man she loved and having him inside of her, as close as he could get to her.

It was something she loved, just being able to connect with him like this and knowing she was the only one at least hopefully who would do it forever now.

Kissing him a bit harder, Avery bit down on his bottom lip as she felt her orgasm building up. Slight whimpers coming out especially when Daryl slowed down some, obviously wanting to prolong her ending for a bit. Though even his slow movements couldn't prolong it by much and eventually her walls closed in around his cock as she muttered his name out into his mouth.

Her hips still moving even through her orgasm and she was sure by the time it had ended she had felt Daryl come inside of her before burying his face in her neck, against the material of the shirt she still had on.

Wrapping her legs around his waist, Avery kept Daryl in place not wanting him to move out of her just yet, nor did she really want him to move away either.

"I knew about your lunch meeting with Natalie today in her hotel room," Avery spoke softly after catching her breath, feeling Daryl lift his head as he looked at her. "And the previous ones this week."

"I didn't go today," Daryl revealed and Avery couldn't help the slight smirk that appeared on her lips. "I wanted to apologize to you and I just didn't go. Texted Natalie on the way home and told her something came up," he sighed before biting his lip. "I'm sorry though again I mean for lying earlier."

Avery shook her head at his words, "I think you more than made up for it," she told him with a hint of teasing to her voice as she leaned in to leave a kiss on his cheek, her lips lingering there against his skin for a bit longer. "But if you're really sorry we can try for a round two of sorry sex after we shower," she muttered on his skin feeling his cheeks move as he grinned at her words.

"I think we can work something out there woman," Daryl spoke as he turned his head, his lips mere inches from hers now. "I'd do anything to make you happy," he told her before kissing her again and Avery kissed him back, the sincerity in his tone when he said his last words letting her know that he did truly mean them.

Daryl would do anything to make her happy and well that just made her content in the fact that even if Natalie kept trying to worm her way into any cracks that formed in her marriage that she'd fail. Daryl had proven today in the end at least to Avery who came first and it was her, his wife who came first.
