Six on Sunday - HIS LAST REQUEST

Six paragraphs from HIS LAST REQUEST
An erotic apocalyptic, sci-fi romance (Christmas theme)

If you had only one more day to live, what would you do?

Corwin knows. And no one and nothing is going to stop him from the telling the woman he has loved silently and from afar how much he cares for her.

Corwin stared down at himself. The fresh blue t-shirt he'd donned before coming over here was already soaked with sweat, as were his jeans. Perspiration rolled down his face, and his head felt like it was going to explode. Standing in the meager shadow provided by the porch did little to keep the stifling heat from penetrating all the way to the marrow of his bones, to suck out every last drop of moisture from his body. There was no wind. It was over one hundred twenty degrees Fahrenheit, and climbing. And it was around the middle of December, a week before Christmas.
2.  Holding out the handful of silk flowers, Corwin watched as she glanced down at them. "I came to give you these and wish you a Merry Christmas. And to tell you goodbye." 
3. "Because I wanted you to know I care very much about you. I wanted you to know I'm not like those other guys you've dated or been engaged to, like that Dennis creep who gave you more weepy days than happy ones, and couldn't care less that you like ginger tea and PayDay candy bars. I want to prove to you that there is someone who won't treat you like crap just to make themselves look important. I want to show you that you deserve to be loved and cherished. And that person..." He pointed to himself. " me."
4. To his surprise, Sadie gave a soft moan and opened her mouth to touch his with the tip of her tongue. Corwin felt his walls of resistance crumbling. And when her hand pressed against his chest, then slowly began to make its way down to the front of his jeans, his whole body began shaking.
5. Silently, she began peeling off her sleeveless blouse. There was a sense of urgency to her movements, and he understood why. She began jerking the top sheet off the bed while he finished undressing and joined her. 
6. She took a shaky breath. "Why now, Corwin? Why did I have to find you now? Why was I such an idiot before? We could have had so many days of happiness. We could have been planning on having a future together."
