(Ichigo POV)

Kids running and laughing across the front lawn. Birds chirping overhead, sharing their music with anyone who would stop and listen. The one I love sitting beside me, laughing and smiling a smile warm enough to warm a thousand winter days.

I smile as well. I feel peaceful, and at ease with the world.

I didn't think I could ever be this happy.

I guess I was wrong.

A/N super short, but I like it! Please review!
