Nearness of You
Driving off in a winnebago. It was the typical happy ending. Except they were only just embarking on the beginning. God knows, it had been a long, treacherous journey to get to the point of deliriousness they currently inhabited. Even though so many hearts had been broken, including theirs, it all seemed worth it for what they had now. Together.
After what seemed like an eternity in each others arms, they awoke from their slumber, but neither moved willingly. The sight of Niles' perfect face, smiling at her, took her breath away. She couldn't believe how lucky she was. Here she lay, embraced by the arms of the man she adored and who adored her.
She remembered the pain she had felt when she had discovered Niles and Mels hasty marriage. She remembered thinking that's how Niles must have felt these past seven years, wanting to unburden himself of is true feelings. Now, she didn't think she could breathe without him.
Her train of thought was interrupted by Niles yawning. "Good morning, my love" he breathed, turning on his side to look her in the eye. He reached to kiss her and she reciprocated.
