I Could Get Used To This

A set of Peter/Olivia vignettes based on some songs. Centered around 3x20, 6:02 AM EST. Olivia's POV.

"This innocence is brilliant

I hope that it will stay

This moment is perfect

Please don't go away

I need you now

And I'll hold on to it

Don't you let it pass you by."

-Innocence, Avril Lavigne

Precious. Beautiful. Wonderful. Peter was right. With him, every moment is brilliant. The sky seems bluer, the sun seems brighter. I've never been happier in my life.

"You make me breakfast in bed

When I'm mixed up in my head

You wake me with a kiss

I could get used to this...

There is not a thing you miss

And I could get used to this...

I'm feeling it comin' over me

With you it all comes naturally.

Lost the reflex to resist

And I could get used to this...

Because you listen to me when I'm depressed...

It doesn't seem to make you like me less.

And I could get used to this."

-I Could Get Used To This, The Veronicas

I'm almost afraid of how happy we are. It seems delicate, like at any moment it might break. But I'm not afraid. I can't be afraid. Not anymore. Implicit trust, that's what we have. Complete honesty. And it's like we were made for each other. I've been so serious and dedicated my whole life, and he's made me smile more times in a day than I used to in a month. Being with him is natural. It just feels right. And I could get used to this.

"Hold me

Whatever lies beyond this morning

Is a little later on

Regardless of warnings the future doesn't scare me at all

Nothing's like before."

-Simple and Clean, Hikaru Utada

I could stay here forever, ensconced in his arms. Nothing else exists except us, here, together. Even though our world is dangerously close to ending, even though we might not live past today, even though our future is not clear in the slightest…I'm happy. And I'm not afraid anymore. I cuddle closer to Peter, bury my face in his chest, and drift back to sleep.
