In the middle of the night Brian wakes up wanting a glass of water, he has to admit to himself sleeping alone isn’t fun like it used to be. He was now used to having Elizabeth next to him. He got to like it, and it made him feel secure. He just shrugs it off since its only one night. It wouldn’t kill anyone, just would make them stronger and even make him see just how lost he would be without her. Which in a way made him a bit nervous to need someone this much. To love someone this much. It was new to him, but he likes it, knowing she felt the same exact way about him. He laid there before getting up to get his water, thinking about the last two years and everything they have been through. How if it was anyone else, they wouldn’t be here today. They would have given up a long time ago, but that wasn’t them. He thought about how she forgave him, for doing the stupidest thing, he ever could have done. Right there he knew she loved him, and he would spend the rest of his life making that up to her.
He also sat there and thought about, how she let go of the past. It took her a long time, but she finally did. Not feeling that marriage would be a disaster. Not letting her track record with Ethan determine how it would be with him anymore. He saw that even though he hurt her badly she stood up, and got over it. Growing more and more as a person. He was so proud of her and glad she was his. Brian also saw how much he has grown as well, in a short time. Not wanting anyone to change how he felt or rule him. What they said, or felt didn’t matter. He knew he wanted no one else but her. No one could ever make him feel the way she does. It just brings a smile to his face.
Brian finally gets up heading into the kitchen, seeing Sean sitting there at the island having a drink. He knew something has been on his mind, and he wished he would open up about it more. As he saw his brother sliding down a hole. One he never thought he would see. Sean was always the one to hold things together. To make serious decisions, and always keep Brian on the straight path. Now it was time for him to do the same. He just needed to know what was really going on.
“Hey bro, what are you doing up this late?” Brian asks.
“I can ask the same of you?” Sean replies.
“I just needed a drink of water. I can’t really sleep, I miss Elizabeth and my own bed.” Brian admits.
