"I picked up your pictures from Walmart," said Airyn, handing the packet over to Catelynn. Catelynn smiled at her best friend and roommate, "Ah, you didn't have to do that for me." Airyn smiled, "Hey, what are friends for? Besides I was there getting us our weekly soda rations." Catelynn laughed as Airyn disappeared back down the hallway. Catelynn tore the barcode sticker and took the photographs from the envelope. These were the pictures from hers and Airyn's recent trip to the beach. She stopped a few photos in when she came across a picture of her and Brian together that Airyn took. A smile crossed her face, while pain crossed her heart. This relationship was all to confusing. Normally, Catelynn didn't consider herself biased on any type of relationship, hell she use to date Airyn. So why should she care about what made Brian so different. She gave the pictures a slight toss, scattering them all over the bed as she went off to find something to drink.

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor

Reachin for the phone cause I can't fight it anymore

And I wonder if I ever crossed your mind

For me it happens all the time

Currently she felt like a complete idiot, they way she felt when she knew that her and Airyn's relationship was over. Sometimes she wondered what would happen if she did some things differently in the past. Would she have been able to save the relationship? No, she thought, the way things are now she wouldn't have traded them for the world. Airyn was happy and she was happy for Ryn. And because of this, she got to meet someone special to her. Catelynn found herself focusing on Brian once again. If she kept continuing on this path, she was sure to lose him forever. Did she really want to go down that path again? All the feeling of doubt and sorrow that once plagued her… No, there was no way that needed to be repeated. Things needed to be learned from the past. There was no need to focus on all the bad that happened in the past, she just needed to keep moving forward.

It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now

Said I wouldn't call but I lost all control and I need you now

And I don't know how I can do without

I just need you now

Brian climbed up onto the barstool of the bar where they met. "Can I get a martini?" he asked the bartender, who nodded. He then put an elbow on the bar and leaned his head into his hand. Another week at this beach, where everywhere he turned reminded him of Catelynn. The barkeep set down the martini as well as a shot glass. "Shot of whiskey, on the house." "Thank you," Brian replied, taking it down quickly. "Well Brian," he said to himself, "You've fallen hard and fast. What a mess…" "Wow, you look like you lost your best friend," came a new, unfamiliar voice. Brian turned to see a red haired transvestite. "My name is Julius," the she-male continued, "Do you need to talk? I'm a great listener and I promise I won't hit on you if you don't want me to." Brian shrugged, "Sure pull up a stool."

Another shot of whiskey can't stop looking at the door

Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind

For me it happens all the time

"It's women troubles isn't it?" guessed Julius, sitting down next to Brian, "the look on your face says it all sweetie." "I just met this girl Catelynn," Brian said, "and I have fallen in love more quickly then I should have left myself." "No one ever plans to fall in love. That's just the way love is, it doesn't care who you are, what your gender is, or even your species, when it finds you that it is. Game over. You're a slave to your heart and love herself." "I think part of her subconscious just sees me as a dog. I wonder if she will ever get over that fact." "I think if she really loves you for who you are she will. Otherwise, she's not worth breaking your heart over. Don't you want the person you want to be with to love you for who you are, not what you are?" Brian nodded, "Well doesn't everybody." "And that's the thing," continued Julius, "Society today has made it out for certain love to be considered wrong. We can't let oppress us. If she can love you for being a dog, then we've all won honey." "I am ready to help and be patient with her as well," Brian said before finishing off his martini, "You know what? Screw the rest of this vacation. I need to go to Spartanburg find Catelynn. I need to know if this is all real."

It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now

Said I wouldn't call but I lost all control and I need you now

And I don't know how I can do without

I just need you now

After searching forever, Brian finally found Catelynn's place. He stood at the door, nervous to even knock upon it. Taking a deep breath he knocked and awaited an answer. Airyn was the one to answer and looked surprised. "Brian, right?" "Yeah, is Catelynn home?" Airyn nodded while smiling, "Yes, she's down in her room watching her favorite romantic movie. I know she's been thinking about you Brian." She nodded down the hall of their apartment, "Down that way second door on the right." Brian walked down the hall and stopped at Catelynn's room. The door was hanging open, and there she was, sitting on the bed, holding a bottle of Pepsi and watching Sleepless in Seattle. He paused a moment to listen to the movie. "People who loved once are far less likely to love again," said the doctor on the movie, "Sam, do you think that there is someone out there you could love as much as your wife?" Tom Hanks spoke, "Well, Dr. Marcia Fieldstone its hard to imagine." "What are you going to do?" "Well, I'm gonna get out of bed every morning, breathe in and out all day long. And after a while I won't have to remind myself to get out of bed and breathe in and out. Then after a while I won't have to think about how I had it great and perfect for awhile." "Sam, tell me what was so special about your wife." "How long is your program? Well it was a million, tiny little things that when you added them up it just meant that we were suppose to be together. And I knew it, I knew it from the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I'd ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew it. It was like magic." Brian looked over to see Catelynn starting to cry again. "Do you believe in magic Cate?" he asked stepping into the room.

Guess I'd rather hurt than feel nothin at all

It's a quarter after one I'm all alone and I need you now

And I said I wouldn't call but I'm a little drunk and I need you now

And I don't know how I can do without

I just need you now

Catelynn jumped slightly startled at the sound of his voice and quickly turned towards the door. "Brian," she exclaimed, the Pepsi bottle flying across the room as she lept off of the bed and onto the floor. She quickly fell to her knees and hugged Brian tightly. "I missed you so much Brian," she said sobbing. Brian held her close, "It's ok, there is no need to cry." "Of course there is. I know we've only been together for a short time, but I wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world and I sure as hell don't want something stupid come between us." Brian took her hands into his own paws, "Catelynn, when I first saw you I was afraid to talk to you. When I first talked to you I was afraid to like you. When I first liked you, I was afraid to love you. Now that I love you, I am afraid to lose you." Catelynn smiled at him, "I'm not going anywhere…" Brian's tail wagged as they took in the moment. "Just kiss already," laughed Airyn walking past, "Don't just stand there." "My pleasure," he said and kissed Catelynn.

I just need you now

Ooo, baby, I need you now
