   "Max," he looked into her eyes and noticed that they were watery. He brushed the tears away with his thumb and smiled. "You have to believe that nothing like that would ever happen. It won't happen if you believe it won't," he told her and she frowned.

   "How can you be so sure?"

   "As long as you're here with me, I'd always be sure of it."

   Sighing, she looked away and stood up. Feebly, she went over to the window to watch the pouring rain. "You still don't get it, right Logan? As long as I'm here, your life would be in danger."

   "Why would my life be in danger?" He wheeled closer to her.

   "Manticore knows that Eyes Only is helping me. If they find out who Eyes Only is, they'd kill him… They'd kill you, Logan…"

   "Nah~ I doubt that."

   "Why?"

   "I have you."

   There was a long silence between their conversations. They looked into each other's eyes as if to find something that was long hidden. She was the one to break "You shouldn't trust me that much, Logan. We don't know what my messed-up genes could bring. Remember what happened to… To Ben." She winced upon saying her dead brother's name but continued despite it all. "Sometimes I thought about going away. That way, maybe you won't be in danger. No cold genetically engineered killing ma --- "He placed two fingers on her lips, stopping her in mid speech.

   "Hush," he whispered. "Don't say that. I still can't forgive myself for ever calling you that. I'm sorry."

   "But you're right. I'm a gen—"

   "Syhh!!"

   He grabbed her shoulder and pulled her into a hug. "Don't ever say that words again. You're more human then anyone else." As he finished his words, the walls that she'd been guarding crumbled and she broke down to cry in his arms. Logan held her close and caressed her hair, smelling her sweet scent.

   "You're more human than anyone else, Max. You helped to survive, can't you remember? I don't know what might have happened I don't have you in my life. That's why I keep my faith in you."

   "Why? What makes you trust me that much?"

   "Do you even have to ask why?" Pulling back, he wheeled herself away from her and went to where his stereo stood. He found a pre-pulse CD. Soon enough, the song sent a wave of emotion into Max's heart as she listened to it.

Staring at the moon so blue
Turning all my thoughts to you
I was without hopes and dreams
Tried to dull an inner scream
But you saw me through

Walking in the path of air
See your faces everywhere
As you melt this heart of stone
You take my hand to guide me home
And now I'm in love

You took my heart away
When my whole world wa grey
You gave me everything
And a little bit more
And when it's cold at night
And you sleep by my side

You've become the meaning of my life

Living in a world so cold
You are there to warm my soul
You came to mend a broken heart
You gave my life a brand new start
And now I'm in love

You took my heart away
When my whole world wa grey
You gave me everything
And a little bit more
And when it's cold at night
And you sleep by my side

You've become the meaning of my life

Holding your hand
I won't fear tomorrow
Here where we stand
We'll never be alone

You took my heart away
When my whole world wa grey
You gave me everything
And a little bit more
And when it's cold at night
And you sleep by my side

You've become the meaning of my life

You've become the meaning of my life
You've become the meaning of our life

   The song ended. Logan wheeled back to Max, took her hand in his and kissed it. "I love you, Max. I always did and I'll always do. As long as we're together, everything would be just right." She smiled and hugged him. "I understand now. Thank you, Logan. I love you too," she whispered. "I know… And I love you. Everything would be all right so now, hush. Don't say anything…"

   She nodded and they stayed like that until they fell asleep in each other's arms.
