Save the Best For Last
by Fate

     

Part Five

The stars twinkled brightly on the waves, providing an almost luminous glow upon the beach.

Theresa sat on a large blanket, wrapped in her wool peacoat, the bitter cold not getting to her for one second. Her body was too worn, too drained to feel anything at this point.

The only thing that was helping her at this point was music. Theresa loved music. She loved singing it, writing it listening to it. Tonight, it was all about her and her guitar and her CD player and the song that she had been slaving over for the past few months.

Tonight, her song was finally coming together.

Out my window
The rain starts to fall
And the wind blows
Through an empty hall
In the mirror
Ooh, reflections of you.

In the distance I hear a sound
Is that you coming around.

(What you gonna do) oh, what you gonna do
(I think I should) I think I should be with you
(A love that's overdue) a love that's overdue
Oh, I think I should be with you.

Thought I saw you
Through a stranger's face
Should I call you
Or should I walk away
Round the corner
Is around the world.

Is that you looking at me
Or am I living a dream, woe-oh.

(What you gonna do) oh, what you gonna do
(I think I should) I think I should be with you
(A love that's overdue) oh, a love that's overdue
Oh, I think I should be with you.

And when I'm lost in a dream
You are all I can see
All alone in the night I'm waiting for you
Every moment I'd die
Just to look in your eyes
The dream is alive...I'm waiting.

Oh, my (oh my)
How I try
To make you see that
I should be with you.

In the distance I hear a sound
Is that you coming around.

(What you gonna do) oh, what you gonna do
(I think I should) I think I should be with you
(A love that's overdue) oh, a love that's overdue
Oh, I think I should be with you.

(Oh-I-I-I-I-I) I think I should be with you
(I-I-I-I-I) I think I should be with you
(I-I-I-I-I) I think I should be with you.


Perfect.

After so many months of being hopeful, of having a dream, her song was complete. No point in perfecting a song that no longer had any relevance to her life. Theresa sighed and flipped on her portable CD player she had brought along with her. Happy, loving music, songs filled with love and hope played one after another, pulling Theresa deeper into her reverie.

There was nothing left for Theresa to be hopeful for.

With that thought, Theresa let her tears begin to fall freely.

The peppy pop tunes that played on Resa's radio could be heard over the crashing waves as Ethan made his way towards her.

Why had Theresa chosen to come to the beach on such a night like tonight? He knew Resa valued her private times, times like these when she could just be by herself, lost in her thoughts, but to come to the
beach when it was 25 degrees out?

The female kind never ceased to confuse Ethan.

Ethan stopped walking towards her as Theresa took the guitar off her slender body and laid it beside her on the blanket she was sitting on. She pulled her knees up to her chin and wrapped her arms around them, her hair blowing wildly in the wind, her head bobbing in tike to the music.

And then there was a calm.

And the only sound Ethan could hear was the sound of Theresa crying.

The one sound Ethan had never wanted to hear again.

Forgetting his plan of wowing Theresa with what a romantic guy he was, Ethan broke into a jog and ran to her side.

"Resa, baby, what's wrong?" he soothed, dropping to his knees and rubbing circles on her back.

Theresa's entire body tensed at his touch.

"Ethan." she breathed, staring at him in wonder. Ethan reached over and gently brushed the tears from her face.

"Wanna tell me why you're sitting out her all by yourself, crying?"

Theresa just looked at him.

"I will if you tell me why you are sitting her with me and not your 'dream girl'."

Ethan's insides clenched tightly. This was it.

But he couldn't say it.

And so that sat in silence, looking up at the cloudless sky.

"Ethan."

"Sssh.Make a wish."

Theresa looked back up at the sky in time to se a shooting star streaking the sky.

Give me the courage to tell Ethan how I feel. Ethan siting here next to her had to mean something, right?

Give me the courage to tell Resa how I feel.

They turned slowly and looked at one another.

Eyes meeting, they could read what one another was feeling.

And at the same time, in perfect unison, the three little words that they had been craving to hear from one another poured out of their mouths.

"I love you."

They stared at one another in awe, completely in shock that their wish had come true.

Questions and answers would come later. At that moment, all they wanted was to feel the lips of their loved one on theirs, to get lost in one another's eyes.

Sometimes the snow comes down in June
sometimes the sun goes 'round the moon
I see the passion in your eyes
sometimes It's all a big surprise

'Cause there was a time when all I did was wish
you'd tell me this was love
It's not the way I hoped or how I planned
but some how it's enough

And now we're standing face to face
Isn't this world a crazy place
just when I thought our chance had passed
you go and save the best for last

All of the night you came to me
when so silly girl have set you free
you wondered how you'd make it through
I wondered what was wrong with you

'Cause how could you give your love to someone else
and share your dreams with me
sometimes the very thing your looking for
is the one thing you can't see

And now we're standing face to face
Isn't this world a crazy place
just when I thought our chance had passed
you go and save the best for last

Sometimes the very thing you're looking for
is the one thing you can't see

Sometimes the snow comes down in June
sometimes the sun goes 'round the moon
just when I thought our chance had passed
you go and save the best for last

You went and saved the best for last



"You love
ME, Ethan Crane?" Theresa whispered, lightly tracing the lines of his face with her hand.

"It's always been you, Resa. But.I had no clue that you love-"

Theresa silenced him with her lips.

Dreams really do come true.
