As I watch you sleep soundly in my arms, I can't help but smile.
You seem so calm... So at peace... So beautiful...
To wake you would be a sin.
But I want to hear your voice.
Fuck that, I NEED to hear your voice.
But you seem so happy...
I remember last night...
How you reacted to the sound of my heart beating against my pale chest.
How you gently soothed my cheek.
How you finally accepted me without fear.
Do you know how that made me feel, Ichigo?
To finally be loved?
Thank you for accepting me.
I've never felt so needed...
I realize now that we need eachother.
More than anything.
Can I promise you something?
I know you probably can't hear me, but I will say it anyway:
I promise to be by your side always.
I promise I will never leave you.
I promise to protect you from your fears.
And I promise that I will only part from you when it comes time to leave this Earth.
Oh, how I love you, King...
