The next morning Miranda awoke with Maria in her arms, sitting up she brushed back the women's hair, her best friend in the whole world had her heart. To be perfectly honest she had Miranda's heart from the first moment she saw her, at that moment she couldn't pinpoint what it was but something inside her already knew. Taking a deep breath, she knew she had to tell her, no matter the out come she had to tell her. Sitting and waiting was never Miranda's strong suit but she knew it had to be done, after a while the women awoke and looked at Miranda sleepily.
Miranda's inside knotted up she wanted to always wake up to that women, smiling down at her friend she waited till Maria realized that something was needed to be talked about. It did not take the women long, sitting up she ran her hands through her thick hair and stared at her friend.
"I need to talk to you." Replied Miranda as she turned and looked into Maria's eyes, nodding Maria knew something was on her friends mind.
"Then I will listen." Simple and to the point, Miranda took a deep breath and began to talk.
"You are my best friend but I have been…I have been in love with you from the first moment I saw you." Tears broke from the editor's eyes as she let go, she soon felt arms wrap around her. Taking a deep breath, she began to go on with what she had to say further. "I knew that you were in a relationship and were happy, at least how you preserved it. Moreover, I felt horrid for what I was feeling; I thought maybe that it is a rebound so I did not act especially if you were happy. All I have ever wanted is for you to be happy, and to be there for you. But I can't lie anymore, I love you." Taking another breath and releasing more tears Miranda looked at her friend and waited for a response.
"I love you too, I have to say I know it sounds cliché but I have loved you from the first moment I saw you. I was getting married and did not act because of the fact you broken up about your marriage ending but I was about to get married, so I let it go. But now that my marriage is over and so is yours I can't lie, my feelings keep growing." Replied Maria, as she looked her best friend in the eyes, the two sat in silence for a moment.
"I have wanted to hear that for a long time." The two sat in silence again, but soon Miranda looked back at Maria and knew that she had to take the chance.
"So does this mean that you will be my girlfriend?" Miranda Priestly never asked questions but Miranda the real one did ask them.
"Are you sure about it, we both have bad pasts and I don't want to hurt you. You mean far too much to me, you are so important to my life Miranda." Maria had a look that spoke volumes as to what her feelings were.
"I am so very sure, and I don't want to hurt you either and you are the most important person in my life. We will take things slow, not glacially slow but slow." The two smiled at each other and both of them knew at that moment that they were not going to leave the other, the second a smile appeared on both of their faces Maria leaned over and kissed her. The kiss did not last long but it lasted long enough for both to know that they were onto another part of their lives. Their love for the other was sealed with a kiss, and answers that they both had been wanting to hear from the moment they saw each other.
