CHAPTER 23

Calm After the Storm

We drove Wilson back to his place and then headed ours. I was exhausted but happy. While House was driving I leaned my head against the cold window and closed my eyes. House looked at me and took my hand in his intertwining his fingers with mine.

"Are you okay?" He asked.

"Uh huh…" I let out and smiled absent-mindedly, my eyes still closed.

"You sure?"

I opened my eyes and squeezed his hand lightly. "I'm sure. You once asked me what would make me feel more secure about you and our relationship." I said and smiled. "Well, what I heard today made me feel confident."

I leaned closer and kissed his cheek. "Thank you."

Even though he kept staring straight at the road I noticed him smiling. "You're welcome. I didn't do it on purpose, though."

I sat back in my seat again and relaxed. I closed my eyes once again and enjoyed the moment.

"Um, Allison… I… I just think we should wipe the slate clean and … let's just forget about both your past and mine. I can't promise you anything but I know that I've never loved anyone as much as I love you. And I want you by my side for… for…"

"Forever?" I added smiling.

"Yeah…" He said changing gear and taking my hand in his again.

"I'm not going anywhere." I said and rested my head on his shoulder. "I'd be stupid to do so."

He pulled over in front of our place and cupped my cheek with his palm. I smiled at him and gently brushed my lips across his.

"I love you, Greg… and I'm sorry for the past month full of ups and downs. I never meant to hurt you…"

"You never did…"

He captured my lips in a searing kiss and I put my arms around his neck holding him as close to me as possible. I was in the arms of the love of my life and the rest… well, the rest just seemed trivial at the moment.

THE END


Okay, I know I promised to continue but I think it'll be better to stop right here. So, I'm giving up on writing for some time cuz I feel like going back to painting (not walls, LOL), which I ignored for past couple of months.

So, once again, thanks for reading… I really had a great time writing this and I hope you enjoyed reading it too.

BTW, for those who wasted their time on reading my other fic Nothing but a distraction, I promise I'll try to continue soon.

Take care, guys… it was a pleasure writing for you!! S. :)
