Roman and Ella is an epic lovestory.
They refer to themselves as soulmates, sharing a connection on a spiritual plane. Often they have felt one other call out in dreams and their subconscious and reacted to it. Roman is logical, a fierce tactician whilst in the SAS he denies their other connection at first but later when he meets Ella in a dream whilst she is going through a near-death experience he admits to it.
Their romance relies not just on the above, there is a great passion between them as well as taking the form of kisses and hand-holding. The times that their relationship is failing or being tested they both admit it is the simple things they miss most. I’ve included this because not every touch between them should lead to sex.
Ella will stroke her hand down Roman’s back. For him this is a comfort thing, a reassurance that she’s there and they are together. If he is in a bad place the simple act of her touch will bring him back and give him proof that she still loves him.
There is a relaxed intimacy between them that continues in each story. For a couple that have been together as long as they have the physical side of a relationship can wain. To tackle this I have my couple ‘falling in love’ repeatedly. I have them rediscover each other emotionally and sexually. They’ll often ‘think’ or remark that it feels different between them, that it’s like being in love all over again.
