Disclaimer: Of course Enterprise and the characters belong to Paramount (I make no profit, but will admit to taking great joy in them.)

Author's Notes: This is a coda to my future fic "Without Change" and does make reference to events in that story, which is archived at EntSTCommunity and on my website. It can be considered a companion-piece to "Muse" which is set in the same (future) time-frame.

Caution: Unapologetically mushy.

At the end of the evening, I knock on your door, just being courteous. My heart knows I'm welcome here.

I melt into your arms, kissing, my hands in your hair. yours on my bum, drawing me closer.

We watch streaming stars, bright, like ocean waves breaking… the foaming waves we watched once on Skye, my heart's home, and on Uist, on Eala Bhan.

I thought I loved you then, Jon, but now is incomparable. We two were just exploring, lovely as it was. We know each other now…relaxed…passionate…both at once. Frenzied…tender…merged into one us.
