Crack the shutters open wide.

Crack the shutters open wide
I wanna bathe you in the light of day
And just watch you as the rays
Tangle up around your face and body

I could sit for hours
Finding new ways to be awed each minute
‘Cause the daylight seems to want you
Just as much as I want you.

The blankets were warm and the room felt comfortable, the bed felt far too welcoming for her to even want to get out of it any time soon.  She was snuggled against an even warmer body, feeling entirely too content to remain there until someone either ousted her from her spot, or the other form in the bed decided it was time to move for the day.

Instead she thought about the past couple days and just how things had lead up to this morning.

Her talks with Tom both verbal and mental had revealed their attraction both mental and physical. How could they not? It was so easy to see why Caer felt so deeply towards the Mirialan. He had given her a new perspective and he had helped bring her back from that brink of pain and darkness that had almost consumed her. Tom had given her a chance to really comprehend that she’d been through the fire of her ordeal and that now was the time for healing. She still had so far to go and she knew this. She still felt insecure in many things and it was a constant struggle for her not to blame herself for everything that happened. But he’d been there, encouraging and willing to be there for her.  Of course nature had taken its course and even afterwards she had been happy things had gone the way they did; she’d felt no pressure and he’d been very attentive to everything. There were absolutely no regrets.

It’s been minutes, it’s been days
It’s been all I will remember
Happy lost in your hair
And the cold side of the pillow

Your hills and valleys
Are mapped by my intrepid fingers
And in a naked slumber
I dream all this again

She curled up in the blankets and kept her vision to a minimum. She didn’t want to face the world yet, she was too content to just lay there and not say or do anything.  She recalled all the conversations they had, everything from their first meeting to their talks in quiet out of the way places on Nar Shaddaa. Even then he had reached out to her, comforted her or even laughed with her. Sharing special quiet moments.  Her favorite memories being those of when he’d come all the way to Voss to just say hello, talk to her or just help her relax by giving her some badly needed advice or an ear to listen to.

However, the memory she cherished the most was the trip to Dantooine. Several days of unwinding, exploring the hill sides and the back breaking farm work as she helped his friends get things in order for their farm. She recalled sitting in the camp site telling him that she enjoyed dancing in the rain. An admission she wasn’t sure she’d told anyone, not even her brother.

Smiling she allowed herself access to the force, watching the Mirialan next to her sleep.  She couldn’t help but smirk at the fact that while the man slept his hair didn’t seem to look mussy or out of place as to where she knew hers was always in a perpetual state of disarray. Chuckling to herself, she watched him sleep until he woke up, starting the day together.  They both had to be at Neirovs hearing in just a few short hours and both had so much to prepare for it.

Caer had a good feeling, keeping hope that Neirov would be alright, that his judgment would go well. She had to, there was no other way. She would be damned if she’d allow them to break up her family.
