"I hope you didn't enjoy that as much as it seemed," I murmured into her hair. It smelled like coconut. "That was for punishment."
There was a moment of silence, and then Cora broke into a loud, long, unrestrained bout of laughter; a sound of complete happiness that I was glad to hear even though it was a bit too loud for my current taste. She couldn't seem to calm down, her torso shaking in my arms.
„That's what happens when you break my rules!" I tried to talk over her, half indignant, half smiling. „Your denial is over! Deal with it."
This drew another fit of laughter from her, and this time I found myself laughing along.
"Don't worry," She said eventually, in between giggles, "It was terrible. So, when can we do it again?"
