"I can not believe your mother heard us," Maureen groaned as the two fell onto the couch. "God, she probably hates me now."
"She loves you." Kristin tucked herself into Maureen's arms and smiled to herself.
"How'd we get here?"
"A cab, Maureen." Kristin teased.
"Last year on New Year's Eve, I woke up in your apartment, wondering if I could let you in. I was scared that you'd leave when you found out how nuts I was last year." Maureen tilted Kristin's head up at her chin, ran her finger tips over her soft lips and kissed Kristin's forehead. "I know when I fell in-love with you."
"When you showed up on my door-step 5 minutes after midnight on New Year's last year. You didn't want to be alone anymore either."
"Y'know when I fell in-love with you, Maureen?"
"I fell in-love with you when you told me your name. 'Maureen. Maureen Johnson.' You said it so softly, like you were afraid it would break if you said it to loudly. I wanted to hug you right then.....and when I started to realize that I wanted more than just to be your friend, when it hit me that I was in-love with you, its like that moment was the first that I felt that pull toward you."
"When did you realize it? That you were in-love?"
"Loaded question. When I stayed with you, when I was sick, I felt so at home with you there that when I went home, it was painfull. I wanted to stay. I called you over one night, and you were there so quickly," Kristin said. Maureen smiled and kissed her wife. "I knew at that moment that I loved you. You held me, and I woke up in your arms. I woke feeling safe and loved. And then you kissed me, and I knew. It scared the hell out of me, but I knew I loved you."
"It scared me, too." Maureen suddenly became shy. "I feel....I feel like I'm dreaming. Like this last year has been one amazing dream, and when I wake up, you'll be gone."
"I'm not going anywhere."
"I want you to know that it doesn't matter where we go, as long as we go together. If we need to move to LA for your work, I'll pack up tonight."
"What about your family?"
"You are my family, Kristin." Kristin kissed her and smiled. "Its been a really good year, Kristi," Maureen whispered.
"Know how I measure it?"
"In hellos, in new loves, first kisses and falling in-love. In 'I do's.' In first steps, in hearing good news. Five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand, six hundred minutes. How do you measure a year?" Kristin whispered. Maureen's eyes pooled with tears as she spoke, knowing it was not part of the song, but a new verse, just for her.
"Love," Maureen said. "We measure our year in love." Kristin kissed her wife's fingers gently. "Will you sing to me, Kristi?"
"Sure." Maureen smiled and closed her eyes. "When you start falling, who's gonna catch ya? I'm willing to bet ya it will be me. Who's gonna love ya like there's no other? Search and discover it will be me."
