Beauty & the Beast doesn't belong to me, if does Jay Ryan would be shirtless a lot and Season 2 would start tomorrow.
Sometimes it feels like there are so many things we can't control, earthquakes, floods, reality shows. But it's important to remember the things we can, like forgiveness, second chances, fresh starts. Because the one thing that turns the world from a lonely place to a beautiful place, is love. Love in any of its forms. Love gives up hope […](From the Movie New Year's Eve)
Today was the last day of Catherine and Vincent in the cabin. They had shared some great moments there and now officially together, they knew things wouldn't be easy. Muirfield was still out there, searching, waiting…hunting Vincent. But now Vincent had another reason to fight, to resist, and to believe. Now he had Catherine beside him, and although, he was still afraid for her safety, he knew deep down that they were stronger together.
Together. Every time that word crossed his mind Vincent smile; Catherine had shown him in every possible way how deep and strong her love for him is, how much she care and how far she goes to protect him. Just as much he cared and loves her, as far as he goes to protect her.
Since Catherine walked up those stairs she had shown him and JT that new things were possible for them, that they were allowed to dream and had the right to be happy. It's been a while since Vincent felt he had someone to come back; someone that wouldn't be benefit for his death. Don't get him wrong, JT is the best friend anyone can ask for, JT is the one left brother Vincent had but it wasn't a day that went by that Vincent didn't think if his death wouldn't be best for his best friend. Thankfully or not is not so easy for him to die. He heals really quickly and every day he kind asks himself how Muirfield end up killing all his friends so easily. But with Catherine was another story. If he had not survived nine years ago Catherine would be dead, if he died now she would be devastated. He would never let Catherine feel alone and miserable again. He promised that the day he told her he loved her and that was a promised he would never break.
As he watches she sleeps Vincent was thinking about how he life changed, how happy he was right now and how he didn't want to come back to New York. Be in the lake with Catherine, be able to sleep and wake up with her is his arms was the definition of happiness and Vincent knew that once they put the first feet at home nothing would be the same. Well almost nothing.
"You are thinking to loud" she murmured without open her eyes.
"How do you know I'm awake if you didn't even open your eyes?" he asked and then smiled it was a stupid question.
She opened her eyes and smiled too "You still think I have to see you with my eyes to know what's going on with you? So, what's bothering you?" She came face to face with him and planted a kiss on his mouth.
He caressed her cheek "IT's not something bothering me, it's just…I'm going to miss this."
She sighed "Me too. There is nothing better than go to sleep with you and then wake up with you."
"I know I'm irresistible" he chuckled and she slapped his arm.
"And cocky I should add" they both laugh and then shared a passionate kiss.
"At least you don't have to face a therapist."
"Everything is gonna be fine. He just has to see you are ok and then you will be back to work."
"Don't forget I still have to come up with something about Mister Vincent Zalaski; my gossipy boyfriend."
Vincent laughed "I know you still mad BUT your safety is and always will be my number one priority. I'm not gonna apologize for that."
"I know. It's just…you didn't have to call Tess for that you could…"
"Tie you in a chair? Yeah that crossed my mind, but I figure I should take the easy road."
"Yeah that probably…wait a minute. You actually thought to tie me in a chair? Unbelievable!"
Vincent laughed "Don't worry you can say we broke up or…I don't know you could introduce me as Vincent Zalanski."
Catherine traced his lips with her fingers "I know you said that you could handle be Vincent Zalanski forever, but that's not fair to you."
"I've been through a lot when it comes to the 'unfair' department, BUT, this is not the case. You gave me so much…and if I can do that for you…just once…"
She kissed him "We have time to think about what WE are going to do. In the mean time, let's just enjoy our last day here and then we figure out what's best for the three of us.
Vincent looked at her confused "Three of us?"
"JT, you and me."
After they had breakfast they decide to give one last walk on the lake. The first time they did that was the morning after they had made love for the first time. They stopped in the deck and Vincent turned to face Catherine "You know you should enjoy this."
"Why?" Catherine asked confused.
"You haven't even gotten to my difficult side yet." He said and in that moment Catherine remembered, she had said the same thing before push him in the water.
"OH yeah!" he replied and catch her in his arms throwing themselves in the lake.
Catherine emerged laughing "You are so mean."
"Really? I didn't hear you complaining the first time. If I'm correct you came closer to me put your arms around my neck and said "Live a little doctor Keller."
"It was like this?" she asked doing the things he said before.
Vincent nodded "I love you Catherine Chandler."
"I love you too Vincent Ryan Keller."
"So, all set?" Vincent asked passing his arms around her waist.
"I don't want to leave." Catherine complained. "I like to be here with you."
He kissed her forehead "I know; me too."
"Thank you for coming with me. These were the best days of my life." She replied.
"No, thank YOU. I don't remember been so happy."
Catherine smiled "It's so good to see you smiling like this"
"You are the reason of that." He murmured before kiss her passionately. "There is only one thing I want to do before we leave." Vincent said between kisses on Catherine's neck.
"What?" she managed to say.
Her answer was Vincent picking her on his arms, taking her back to the cabin to the bedroom where they had made love several time and were going to do it again.
Clothes had been taken, kisses and touches exchanged; whispers and moans filled the room. Every time they felt that powerful energy running through their bodies.
They had already packed and now they were leaving the place where they solidified their relationship. "I'm going to miss this place" Vincent confessed as he entered in the car on the driver side.
"Me too" Catherine responded putting the seat belt. "We will come back."
"Someday" Vincent continued and started the engine.
The five hour drive was real fast to tell the truth much faster than Vincent and Catherine wanted. Without they realized they were in front of the warehouse. "Thank you for those amazing days and for making my birthday the best I ever had."
"You don't have to thank me, Vincent. Be with you is all I want."
"I see you tomorrow?" Vincent asked hopefully.
Catherine smiled "Of course. Good night, Vincent. Thank you for coming with me."
They shared a good bye kiss and then Catherine leave. They both doubting they would be able to sleep not having each other's arms. When Catherine got home she was welcome by a happy and electrical Heather. "Someone got lucky in this trip"
"So, the apartment is still in one piece. Who knew, hun?"
"Oh come on! Bring you sexy butt over here and give me a hug big sis!" They hugged each other "I missed you!"
"I missed you too."
"Oh, Come on! You and Doctor sexy were in the middle of nowhere… Do you really want me to believe that you miss your little sister?"
Catherine laughed "What about you, any great news to share?"
"Well, Darius and I are really good, thanks for asking and I got that job as Events coordinators."
"Oh my god, Congratulations!" Catherine hugged her sister again "I'm so proud of you."
"Thank you. And as much as I would love to hear about your vacation, I have to take a shower I have to go to work."
Catherine smiled but before she could celebrate she got away from her sister interrogation she heard Heather's voice, "You still don't have to work tomorrow so I still want full report, ok?"
"Damn it!" she murmured to herself, apparently Vincent was not the only one with a curious roommate. Hopefully, Vincent was luckier.
AS Vincent put the first feet in the warehouse Vincent noticed JT wasn't home. When he got in his bedroom he found a note from his best friend.
"Went to buy some beer, won't be long."
Vincent took a deep breath apparently he wasn't going to get away the "full report" JT was demanding. Not the he was going to tell every single thing that happened between Catherine and him. Catherine. Just to say her name brought a smile to Vincent's face.
"Well, well look who is back?"
"Hey, JT!" Vincent said giving a hug on his friend "How's everything around here."
"Nothing much, I just went to buy some supplies for our guy's night. I presume you have a lot to tell."
"You are not letting this go, are you?"
"Nope" JT answer and went to the fridge "So, what do you say some Xbox first?"
"I will take a shower and I'll be back in few."
"You can't run forever, man!" he laughed.
Vincent and JT had a fun night; obviously, Vincent kept the details to himself. He told JT about his gifts and even told him about the letters Catherine had given to him. Vincent learned that things between JT and Sarah had been more than good and they at the moment were almost an officially couple.
It was almost midnight when Catherine heard her phone, like she previously thought, she couldn't sleep. She was already used to have Vincent's arms around her. "Hello!"
"Still awake?" Vincent asked in the other side of the line.
Catherine smiled "Can I have girl moment and admit that I'm missing your arms around me?"
"Of course you can, as long as you don't be against the idea of me invade your house."
Catherine looked at her window and saw Vincent outside. "Come in!" she said with a huge smile.
"You know I was planning on stay in the warehouse until I decided to read other letters you gave to me, and after I read this" he shook the letters in the air "I couldn't stop myself from come here and sleep with you."
Catherine kissed him "I'm glad you are here."
Vincent took off his pants and shirt; staying just in his boxes. He joined Catherine under the covers and passed his arm through her body. "Much better" she murmured.
"I totally agree with you. I locked your door just in case your sister decides to come here to check on you when she comes back."
"Oh, my boyfriend is a genius. I love you Vincent."
"I love you too. Good Night, Catherine."
Vincent still couldn't sleep, he kept thinking about the letter he read. The letter he was so anxious to read…The letter Catherine talked about Evan kissing her.
My birthday was good; all my friends were here except for one person. I wished he could've come. Evan…Evan kissed me and I think I kind of let him. I don't know. I guess I just wanted to know if I would feel something…anything. But no.
Vincent said that I should enjoy the party and live my life, but how am I supposed to do that if he is not here? If when I'm not around him I'm not completely happy?
I found his gift on my window, I kind of feel he saw Evan kissing me. Well, it's not like him and I have something, right? So, why I feel like I had betrayed him?
I think I'm going crazy, that's it.
I miss you mom, Wish you were here.
Slowly Vincent fell asleep with a smile on his face. Unfortunately in the next days, things would get bad for Catherine and him. Vincent doesn't know that right now, but Heather's boyfriend Darius owes lot of money to a loan shark and two days after Valentine's Day Vincent will kill him to protect his girlfriend's sister.
Their future didn't look so bright and it doesn't matter how lame that sounds true love conquers all and as long as Vincent and Catherine are together they will never be alone again
"Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can't control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That's what it's like for me. I didn't plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt that you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me love like that has happened only once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it." (The Notebook)
