I've never actually slept here before. But tonight his arms held me more tightly than usual and his eyes held questions I could only answer with more kisses.

It's become my habit to slip out of bed and back to Enterprise when he falls asleep after a day together. Easier for us both, I thought. But in truth, it isn't just Jon's eyes, Jon's arms holding me here. I need this too, this feeling of commitment…the illusion, at least, of forever.

I promised that I'd still be here with him when he awakens.

Sleep safe, love. I will be.
