"____! ____! No! Please don't leave me!" I fell to my knees, begging for my beloved.
I don't know why she left me with the children. What did I do wrong? I was just trying to be a good father... Am I not enough?"
Is it because I can't tell her my feelings?
"Haah...!" I got up from the bed as I panted heavily "A dream?" It was my first time having a nightmare like that, Why am I afraid? my heart is throbbing so fast. When I looked down at the bed, ___ wasn't there, Only the children, sleeping peacefully. I'm glad I didn't wake them.
I left the room as fast as I could. I had to see ____. to know that it really WAS all just a dream. I saw her in the kitchen, leaning on the pale granite bench top. She was reading some papers, work probably. As soon as I approached her, I wrapped my arms around her and kissed her. She dropped the papers in shock.
Why is she not responding? She never kisses me back, and she never pushes me away. Is she numb or just pretending that she's not realizing it? As I pull away, my emerald eyes searching her (e/c) ones, she places her hands on my cheeks, a calculating look on her face.
"Do you have a fever? You're acting strange" I want her warm hands to touch me.
"Let me guess... You had a nightmare?" That smile is the only one I need.
"You overworked yourself yesterday. You should take a rest, or you'll have nightmares again. If you like, I'm happy to take care of your work, I'm almost finished mine. I don't have much to do!" she said. Her voice is all I need to hear.
She hugged me. She's really a caring woman; I could be the happiest man on Earth if I could have her as my wife.
"Just help me check them, that's all" I rested my forehead on hers and kissed her for the last time and tried to sleep again.
