The next moring Sara woke up in Michael's warm bed
She reluctantly got up and went to look for him
She found him in the kitchen, his back turned to her as he was looking out the window
she nervously tugged on the sleeves of her dark green sweater
She reached out her hand cautiously and tapped him on the shoulder
He spun around to face her, a small smile on his face
She looked down
He brushed a strand of hair out of her face
placing a hand to the small of her back
gently guiding her toward the livingroom
He asked her softly
"How are you feeling?"
She sat down on the couch
"The truth?
Like I need a fix"
He sat down next to her
"Are you going to get one?"
"No, I can still get by for a few hours without it"
"What happens after that?"
"I'll do what I have to"
She saw the look of devastation on his face
Her voice was soft, hopeless, like she'd just given up, her strength was gone
"I don't wanna be doing this, Michael
But I don't even have a roof over my head,
The street isn't exactly a good place to detox
Rehab never lasts, and I can't do this alone"
He pulled her small body onto his lap
"You're not alone, you have me"
Against her better judgement she felt herself melting into the warm comfort of his body
"I can't do this to you Michael, I can't put you through all of this again
It's not fair, The last thing you need is me and my problems that'll never be fixed"
Her voice was still soft and broken, he framed her face with his hands
"I love you, I'm a mess without you, I can't breathe knowing that you're out there, all alone
We can get through this
And if some part of you didn't believe that
You wouldn't've called me last night"
She looked away from him
"I shouldn't have done that, I'll never be able to make you happy, Michael"
He kissed her softly
"You already do, Sara
When I'm with you, When I can hold you in my arms
I'm happy, I love you more than anything,
Please stay here, Let me help you"
"You have to be sure about this, Michael
Because if I do this, For the next week, I'm going to be pretty much incapable of doing anything by myself
"I was there the last time remember?"
"I know but.."
"I'm not going to change my mind
I have a few weeks worth of vacation time saved upe kissed her knuckles
So I can stay with you for as long as you need"
She rested her head against his chest
"I love you, Michael"
"I love you"

An hour later they were snuggled up on the couch, facing eachother
"Do you wanna watch a movie or something?
Can we just stay like this for a little while?"
"I could stay like this forever"
