By My Side

Sam closed the door as the last of the guests left her house and went back into the living room. She was exhausted, and emotionally drained after the death of her father and her breakup with Pete.

"Sir, you're still here." Due to her confusion it came out more like a statement than a question, but she hadn't seen him for over an hour and thought he'd already left.

"Just wanted to help you clean up. It was a nice service, Carter. I'm sure Dad would have approved."

"Thank you, Sir."

He frowned. "For what?"

"Standing by my side."

"Always."
