Bringing a hand up, she stroked his cheek, the rough scratch of his beard abrading her fingertips. “I love you, too. I don’t want to live without you, and I’ll forever regret not figuring out we were meant for each other five years ago. All that wasted time,” she moaned.
“It wasn’t wasted. Those years brought us to here and now. Do you have any doubts we were meant to be together?”
“None. It’s funny how you can see your priorities so clearly when you realize you might not have time to act on them.”
“But that didn’t happen, and we have all the time in the world.”
His lips settled on hers in a kiss that stole her breath. Together they tumbled backward onto the bed, falling into their future.
