He held his hand out to her to help her up onto the pavilion. Once she slipped her delicate hand into his, he pulled her not only onto the deck, but into his arms. Walking her to her side of the table, waiting to make sure she was comfortable before he slipped around the other side and poured them both a glass of champagne. Sitting down on the table with her, he simply smiled.
“Can you believe the way this year turned out darling?” she asked him.
He exhaled with a slight snort, raising his eyebrows. “I’m…. shocked, still. A lot of ups and downs,” he said, nodding.
“Mhmm…,” she looked at him over the rim of her glass with a twinkle in her eyes.
He chuckled and smiled at her. “I have a lot to be thankful for. I’d relive any part of this year as long as I ended it right here, with you, right now.”
She placed her hand on his cheek gently, looking in his eyes as he leaned closer. She jumped and looked around when the first round of fireworks went off, but he never took his eyes off of her; never flinching. She was his focus…. Pushing 2015 behind him, his pulse quickened as he thought of the new year. The new possibilities. The new opportunities. All… with… her.
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
— Neil Gaiman —
