(Nick's pov)

The day I let Mia go is the day I draw my last breath.

She’s back, and this time I’ll be the man she deserves. We’ll make this work. But Jesus Christ, we both have to stop doing shit to be sorry for.

I have to let her in. And I will.

Right now I’m just glad she’s here, lying next to me in the exact position she fell asleep in, as close as she can get without actually touching. She should be in my arms, her body pressed against mine, skin on skin, our legs entwined. I can never get close enough. Even the miniscule space between us is too much. But my body hurts all over. Fuck, it hurts to even breathe.

The dreams woke me ridiculously early as usual, but I’m pretty much stuck here. Mia would throw a fit if she woke up to find me out of bed.

She’s so cute when she’s pissed off. Well the fake kind of pissed off with me, for not being the good patient I promised to be. Not the real pissed off, like when I barge into meetings or give her stupidly expensive gifts as an apology. Then she’s scary. But her Little Miss Bossy? Well that’s just adorable.

Of course, when I’m fully fit I’ll have to remind her who’s really the boss. My cock twitches at the thought of exactly how I’ll remind her.

She stirs, murmuring something unintelligible as she slowly rouses from sleep.

I watch as her eyelids flutter open. God, she’s so beautiful. And I wonder for about the millionth time how I ever got so lucky to have her... To have her back again.

‘Hi,’ she murmurs; her voice thick with sleep.

Damn it’s sexy, and I can’t help the huge smile I know has broken out on my face. ‘Hi.’

She moves and leans on her elbows. I try not to wince at the pain as her movements make the bed shift beneath me, but then any amount of pain is worth it, just to be able to look into those warm brown eyes as she gazes down at me.

Christ, there are so many emotions in my head and heart right now. I want to tell her how much I love her, how grateful I am she came back, how I’ll never let her down and will spend the rest of my life making her happy. But I don’t know how to put all that into words.

‘I love waking up with you,’ I tell her, and it’s true. ‘I want to start and end every day with you, right here... Tell me I can.’

‘I told you, I’m going to look after you so−’

‘No, I mean after... Tell me you’re staying, and I get keep you... Forever.’

Panic fists in my chest as she considers me. She has her keys on the ring I gave her. I took it as a sign she’s ready to move in. What will I do if she isn’t? I don’t want to wake up in a bed that’s empty of her ever again. I want her face to be the first thing I see every morning and her kiss the last thing I feel before sleep each night.

Then she smiles... And the fear loosens its hold on my heart.

‘Yes. You have me... Forever.’

I don’t care how much it hurts as I wrap my hand around the back of her head and pull her down to me. I just need to kiss her.

Her lips are soft against mine, her response tentative at first. Then she relaxes in my arms, giving in.

And I know she’s mine.

I kiss her hard, like my life depends on it, because it does. Trying to convey everything I feel for her in this one kiss because I know I have to stop too soon, even though I don’t want to. I could spend my life kissing her.
