It was morning, the bright light from outside of my window waking me from my deep slumber. I did not want to wake up. I felt it was too soon to wake. I was so happy, comfortable, warm, and most importantly, I felt safer than I ever felt before. I could not remember the last time I felt in peace. I knew it had to do with the man sleeping soundly beside me. I had made love with Vash the Stampede
I had always dreamt of waking in Vash's arms. It was a dream I never thought would actually come true, but here I was in my bed with the infamous Humanoid Typhoon. My happiness knew no end at that very moment. This had to be the best moment of my life.
My eyes still shut tight, I cuddled closer to my new lover. He shifted to hold me closer to his body. I could feel the cold metal of the bolts and grates that decorated his broken body. I gently touched one and he flinched as if the wound still caused him pain. Something was upsetting him.
I opened my eyes to look up at him and saw he was awake. His eyes were weighed down with sadness.
"What's wrong, Vash?" I asked gently.
He stared down at me and smiled. It was the kind of smile that did not quite reach his beautiful sea green eyes.
"Nothing," he said simply and kissed me softly on my lips.
I glared up at him.
"Something is wrong," I insisted. "We just had an unforgettable night and you looked like someone had just shot your dog."
Vash shifted to sit up, taking me with him. He did not seem like he wanted to let me go just yet.
"How can you love me?" he asked solemnly.
I sigh and shake my head in disbelief. After last night, this broom-head doubted my feelings for him.
I smile up at him.
"How can you say something like that you idiot," I said lovingly. "I love you, Vash. I have for a long time. I don't know exactly when it had happened. It just did. I don't want it to go away."
"But why?" he asked.
"Does it matter?" I asked in return. "Vash, don't look a gift tomas in the mouth."
"But I'm not that good of a person," he said. "I…"
His eyes saddened. He was burdened with something and I could tell he didn't want to tell me.
I let out a heavy sigh and looked him straight in the eye.
"Nobody's perfect," I said. "I have plenty flaws myself. But I love you enough to see pass all of your imperfections. That is if you will let me."
Vash gazed at me deeply and my eyes began tear up.
"I want to let you in, Meryl," he said. "But I need time. I'm so used to pushing people away."
"I know," I said. "And so am I, but hopefully, we can get pass that flaw together."
He smiled at the saying and held me tight, kissing my head.
"I love you so much, Meryl," he said happily.
"And I love too, Vash," I said with a smile.
I stretched to kiss his lips passionately. He happily returned the kiss.
Yup, happiness was great and life was good.
