"I've heard music that's taken my breath away and left me in tears for hours uncounted, but it was not those. I listened enraptured at the sound of my own heartbeat. But that's not it. I've been with the Princess as she sings. That's not it either. The most beautiful thing I have ever heard was what you said, two years ago, as we passed the guard of the first gate."

"What on Earth did I say?"

"You said, 'Mike... I think I love you.' And that's the most beautiful thing I ever heard."
