The words were different, the person and their touch was different but in the strange coalescing that seemed to happen in her brain, Faye’s mind slipped. Just a little. It wasn’t that she was stressed either. But in his beautiful, oh-so-real words, there was a promise there. The promise of something more, of a future. The part of Faye that had only just allowed herself to feel her emotions so fully struggled to leap. There was the another part of her though that wanted to take his promise and run away with it… and him. Faye tapped the nail of her index finger on her palm rapidly he ran his words through her mind on a loop, letting them truly be heard. When you are ready.

Fifteen seconds, maybe thirty. Faye exhaled and nodded. “You and me,” she whispered, her eyes a torrent of emotion.

“From here on. And for as long as you want… even if that’s always.” Daggum said softly and he put his arm around her and pulled her into him.

“Okay,” she whispered. Closing her eyes, Faye nestled herself against his body, her head next to his chest. She could hear the steady beat of his heart and it was incredibly soothing. They stayed there for some time, and the silence was easy. She liked it.

“Come on, more to show you,” Faye said after awhile. Leading him back down The Hill, she cut through the large open grassy area amongst the main main in the central bed. It was the place, as she pointed out, where the awards ceremony had been held. Past The Pond and through the wooded grove, Faye led him to the far corner of the garden by the greenhouse and raised beds for the crew. And of course the mushroom house.

“I love that detail more than I can express, but I have to admit that the whole exterior resemblance was a little unnerving at first.” Faye looked back at him as they approached. “But what I love most is that you thought to look it up in the first place,” she said with a smile.
