Liz settled down against her husband, her head finding its place against his neck. The rhythm of his breathing settling her down into a relaxed state, leaving her lingering between sleep and coherences. It was times like this that she let her mind wander over her memories.

Come to me now
And lay your hands over me
Even if it's a lie
Say it will be alright
And I shall believe

The day he laid his hands on her she had been brought to life... He had told her that she would be ok now ... 'You're ok now' ... How wrong had he been. He had sent her into a spiral of life that brought pain, death, and love... She wasn't alight at the time... But she did believe the that he could take care of her. That he could fix her and anything coming their way.

I'm broken in two
And I know you're on to me
That I only come home
When I'm so all alone
But I do believe

She recalled the time she had spent way from him, after that second summer of undoubting pain. She had buried herself in alcohol at the academy. He had known she still loved him, he had known her even when she hadn't known herself. She had felt so broken.

And she had known... And she had only came back to him when she was ultimately alone... When he had... The thought now even made her choke up... It had taken the extreme to bring her back to him... To bring her back home...

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me

Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
And I shall believe

She had always thought life would turn out easier... She had had a plan, she had always had a plan. Love, marriage, the things all little girls fantasize about. Meet a good man, marry, and have children.

She had believed it would be normal...

Open the door
And show me your face tonight
I know it's true
No one heals me like you
And you hold the key

He had opened the door to her mind that night in the Crash Down, he had opened a door to his own mind, telling her things without words that made her understand him more... He showed her the true side of him...

He had healed more than a bullet wound after that. He had brought her back and showed her the way to love, showed her what she could be.. He had opened her heart, only he held the key to her true self...

Never again
would I turn away from you
I'm so heavy tonight
But your love is alright
And I do believe

She had made the mistake of leaving him once, and never again would she do something like that. She couldn't. She could feel the weight of her memories on her like a physical strain, but just knowing she was sharing that past with him... With her husband....

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly
You won't give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe
And I shall believe

Not everything had turned out like she planned. The marriage, the kids, the life of normalcy.. She had married a good man. She had a good life. But she never knew.. That it could be... I was even better. Her life was eve better than she thought it could be.

She would never give up on him. On them. And she did believe...

The End
