................. I woke up snuggled into J.J feeling the steady beating of his heart and the slow rise and fall of his chest as he slept the glint of his wedding band caught my eye making me smile he was mine he was my forever. I moved and slid out of bed and put on a pot of coffee and started to pick up the pieces of his Uniform that were scattered round the room showing how we didn’t care the night before I stopped and looked at him sleeping now on his stomach, something I’d done a hundred times before but this morning it felt different.
 
“I can feel you watching me” he smiled opening his eyes and rolling onto his back.
 
“I can’t help it” I walked over to the chair and put his Blues over it smoothing my hand over it “this time tomorrow” I looked down J.J. got out of bed and crossed the floor wrapping me in his arms and holding me.
 
“It’s what we do” he sighed “Marine strong right”
 
“Right” I looked up at him and smiled,  “I was due to go into the doctors today to get my shot… I’m going to cancel” he smiled
 
“So does that mean when I get back we get to…” I stopped him by kissing him he lifted me up and carried me back to the bed. Every minute mattered until there were no minutes left and those buses took him away from me again……………………..
 
 
 
………………… I watched as J.J. packed his bag and put it at the end of the bed in the apartment. He looked at me
 
“You ready to make the call to Texas?”
 
“As I’ll ever be” I nodded ‘You know the day after you get married and the day you get married shouldn’t be this stressful should it”
 
“No it shouldn’t ad the next time we do it I promise it’ll be everything we want it to be” he kissed my forehead he sat on the couch and pulled me on to his lap as he dialed his parents.

There was a silence punctuated by a hell yeah from Rachel and a small cry from Jordan

He hung up the phone and looked at me and let out a huge sigh
 
“You know I’m exhausted now I think I need to go to bed”
 
“If we go to bed you ain’t sleeping Marine… or is it Cowboy” I leant down and kissed him, we didn’t make it to the bedroom before we were naked and knocking things from the table in the kitchen……………………….
