You weren't there when he was shot, but, years later, the nightmares still plague you. Part Rosslyn, part what must have happen in that convenience store. You can never stop it, though you always try.
And then you wake up, gasping and shaking in the pitch black of night, to tender hands and a warm voice.
"It's okay. It's just a dream. I'm still here," your husband whispers.
You're confused enough to wonder if that means this is the dream and reality is one where he didn't survive. But the thought fades with sleep's hold and you return Simon's smile.
