She Submitted

She submitted out of desire and instinct.

She submitted because she had no choice. Submission was part of her core, maybe even in her DNA.

She submitted because she longed to calm the storm that raged inside and threatened to tear her apart.

She submitted her shields and weapons once she knew she could fully trust.

He picked them up in reverence.

He knew they were given freely and with the assurity they would never be used against her.
