John smelled like scented shampoo, something citrus-y, but that wasn’t all.
The sheets smelled like soap, clean and fresh against the tang of sweat and the musky, lingering – heady – layer of sex in the small room.
The sheets reminded him of some planet he’d been on in the vast array of the Pegasus galaxy, he’d forgotten which one but one of the nicer ones, with sunshine and open fields and no persistent insinuation of destruction and fear and death. Just clean.
Lorne breathed deeply.
John smelled like citrus shampoo and something else, something dark, something a long way from vanilla.
