I slowly turn the key unlocking the door to the place I once called home
I step inside breathing in the familiar scent of those who once loved me
Those who I still love…
I take the stairs one at a time being careful not to make a sound
Once I reach the top of the stairs I take a left
I can see the light from the television radiating from under our bedroom door
I reach the door and carefully turn the knob making sure to not make a sound
And there they are. My life…
She is turned on her side with Masen snuggled up behind her
They have somehow kicked the covers off throughout the night
I take a step into the room and pause
My hand coming to rest on my chest as I try to hold in the emotions
Bella and Masen aren't alone. He's there.
I close my eyes to make sure I'm not dreaming
I open my eyes and realize I am no longer the only person awake.
Bella's staring right at me.
