Kelly Clarkson - Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) [Project 46 Remix]
Monday February 18, 2012
When he woke up he realized that, in fact,
he wasn't alone at all.
Lying cuddled at his thighs was his baby, his best friend, the only one that had been there, seen it all, the good the bad and the ugly of the past four years. he reached down and rubbed his head, and when he did, the boy looked up, opened his big blue eyes and lightly, gently, sweetly licked his hand which sent shivers of joy through his whole body. when he went to adjust himself and put his right hand under his head so he could get just a tad closer to his baby boy, he felt the other one. the new one. the sweet girl who was his roommates dog, but she had kind of moved in with him and his boy. she was curled up by his head, and when he nudged her, she looked up, and made a soft happy sound and curled in just a little closer.
here he was, in bed, on a day he wasn't sure he could face alone, with the two babies he had adopted and kept safe and warm. he didn't need anything else.
Of course there were things he would like, things he maybe could use, but, the reality of it was, this was exactly where he wanted to be, right now, right there, with exactly who he wanted to be with, more than anything.
it was even before the day began, and already, it was better than any day he could remember in a long, long time...
maybe this was the start of something completely different
than he ever imagined...
maybe this was the sign he had been looking for so long, for...
maybe that last chapter of his life was finally over and he was now, stronger, for having survived it.
within seconds, he fell right back to sleep.
