Here in lies peace.

She rests her head across his chest, her body cradled in his.
With his arms wrapped around her waist, she is safe.

This is every dream she's ever had.
Every selfish wish come true.

A nervous heartbeat stutters as she makes the first move.

Her lips to his.

And in answer to his whispered, 'Why?'
She responds in kind, 'Because I like you.'
