She loves her family. Her husband is an amazing person. She loves everything about him: his eyes, his smile when he thinks that no one is watching, the way he snors. It's soo sexy. Just...

"Don! Wake up!"

"Jess, what happend? Are you okay?"

"No! I'm not okay! Your snoring doesn't let me sleep!"

"Do you want me to take the couch?"


"So, what do you want me to do?"

"Sleep here with me."

"But you've just said I snored."

"Because you do."

"I can't sleep and not snore, sweetheart. I'm sorry."

"Don't be. It's not your fault. It's my fault. I shouldn't have woken you up. It was so selfish. Never mind. Go back to sleep. You need it. You have work tomorrow."

"No,no,no, Jess, you're not going anywhere. Talk to me, darling."

"It's nothing, Don, nothing, really. I'm just moody. Really, go back to sleep. I'll read for a moment in the living room."

"Jess, as you've just said, there's work tomorrow and I'm not the only one who's going to get up early to go there. You need sleep too, even more than I do. Go back to sleep, I'll wait till to fall asleep, this way my snoring won't keep you up, okay?"

"Okay." she agrees more because she's too tired to argue anymore. And his chest is so welcoming. She lays her head on him and falls asleep as soon as she does it.

He's woken up by the most annoying sound in the world - the buzz of an alarm clock. The wants to reach it, to turn this damn alarm clock off. But in this very moment he discovers that he can't raise without moving his chest, currently used as a pillow by Jess. He doesn't want to wake her up yet - if he make breakfast and take the shower first, she can sleep for next half an hour. So he genty moves her head onto the real pillow and she murmurs, but doesn't wake up. He finally clicks the "off" button of their Mickey Mouse alarm clock (her choice, he didn't argue) and goes to the bathroom. While he enters the bathroom, he turns just to see her - she's beautiful, he thinks, even if she thinks that she looks like a whale. But she's his own whale. And how many New Yorkers wake up every morning next to a whale?
