Harry was sitting on the couch, engrossed in a file, when he
felt a kiss on the side of his neck and then a nibble on his
ear. "Hi, love," he said, reaching a hand up to caress
"Hi," she said moving to stand in front of him, with
one knee on the edge of the couch.
He smiled when he saw she was only wearing his shirt.
Laura placed her other knee on the other side of his legs and
curled up against his chest, with her head on his shoulder, and
her arms around his chest.
His arms immediately went around her and began caressing her
back. "Everything all right, love?"
She just nodded her head, yes. "I love you, Harry."
He lifted her head from his shoulder so he could look into her
eyes and saw her love for him. A love he couldn't pretend to
understand but was ever so grateful for. He kissed her and when
he pulled back, said, "I love you, too. I don't know what
I ever did to deserve you."
"I'm the lucky one, to have such an incredible man in my
He hugged her, brining her back against his chest and she placed
her head on his shoulder once again.
After a few minutes of just enjoying holding and being held by
one another, Laura, very quietly asked, "what was your first
fantasy of me?"
"The first time I saw you, I knew you were something very
special. I had done my homework on you and the agency, so I knew
what you looked like and the basic information I could get from
the newspaper, but I wasn't prepared for what a beautiful, intelligent,
sexy woman you really are. You are such a strong woman. I wasn't
prepared for that. But you had to be. You created an agency,
a person that doesn't exist to front the agency, because you
weren't being taken seriously as a woman."
Laura lifted her head so she could look at him as he spoke.
"After the gems had left the airport, I tried to leave,
but I couldn't get you out of my head. But, I think what made
me love you even more was when you walked into the office, not
expecting me to be there, and you trusted me to carry on this
role, even after I had conned you. You made me feel
like a part of the agency. I know Murphy didn't like me and didn't
want me around, but you let me stay. I felt like I belonged somewhere
and that hadn't happened in a very long time. You let me into
your life, professionally. You let me see what it was like to
be a part of something other than myself.
What my fantasy was, was to be a part of your life, personally.
That's it, I just wanted you to love me and accept me. I wanted
to be a part of a family, part of your family."
The tears that had gathered finally fell when he said that all
he wanted was to be loved and accepted.
She kissed him, deeply; hopefully showing him how much he was
loved. When she leaned back, he wiped the tear tracks from her
cheeks. "You've been my family for longer than you think.
I love you, so much, sometimes I'm overwhelmed how much I love
Harry kissed her and then pulled her down to rest against his
chest once again. After a while, he heard her breathing even
out and saw she was asleep. "Sleep well, love," he
whispered and kissed her temple.
