Chapter 1 by Mareel

Hours still till morning... he lies in my arms half-drowsing, as if afraid he'll lose me again if he dares to sleep... or wake. I've kissed and reassured... we've loved and cried and promised, trembling with emotion finally given voice.

Even in dreams, his hand seeks mine... clasping it tightly, he tucks it beneath his cheek. Pillowed thus, he finally sleeps.

Still I watch over him, just as unwilling to sleep, my eyes and heart filled with him as he'd filled my body when we loved... as if it were our last night together... or our first.

Now I'm home.
