Just Tell Me

“It was really nice to have a date night tonight, Luke. It’s been a long time since we dressed up and went somewhere nice…It seems like we’ve spent all of our free time with Emma and Niall the past couple of months and forgot to take a little time off together.”

“Bre, it’s been a wonderful night and I hate to ruin how relaxing it has been, especially now, but I have put off talking about this for too long and ran out of time.”

“Um, Luke, you’re making me kind of nervous, making such a serious comment. Quit staring into space and just tell me please!”

Luke moved and pulled his wife into his lap so they could talk. “I know we agreed to stop working at least until this baby is a few months old, but The Agency called and asked me to take on a mission. It’s a big one and they said I’d be a real asset on this one…I told them yes. I know I should have talked it over with you back when they called, and I shouldn’t have given an answer until we talked, but, I just…I guess I felt I couldn’t walk away when he said they really wanted me to come back in for this mission. I’m so sorry for not telling you sooner and for agreeing without talking to you. And I’m sorry I probably ruined our night out…” Luke replied miserably.

“Luke! You didn’t ruin our time together, but what if something happens? That’s why we agreed to take a break and later on decide if we want to go back into the field. How long before you leave? How long do they think the mission will take? If they made you feel like they need you, then it has to be really dangerous!”

Luke looked down at his feet and then back at Bre. “I leave the day after tomorrow. They called three weeks ago and I’ve been trying to find a way to tell you what I had agreed to, but couldn’t find the nerve. It should only be a couple of weeks, but I know you didn’t want me out in the field right now.”

“We are handfasted and married…you shouldn’t have to find the nerve to talk to me about anything! We vowed to face everything together and to always be there for one another. And I wish you hadn’t put it off. Everybody tries to ‘live in the moment and appreciate it’, but we forget to truly appreciate it sometimes. I don’t want any of us to have regrets.”

Luke sighed, looking at the softly lapping water and stars twinkling just beyond the bridge where they sat. “You’re right. I really hate to let you down and have been worried that the stress could hurt the baby, since you’ve had a rough second trimester.”

“It’s okay and we’re okay. I promise. I’m scared about the danger you’re going to be in, but the baby and I will be fine, and the kids were always pretty easy going about us going on missions. I’ll ask Eva to come stay with us while you’re gone and it’ll feel more normal for them with you gone, then. Just don’t avoid talking about things with me please. Our marriage deserves better than that.”

After clearing the lump in his throat Luke replied, “I made them agree to moving us to a permanent safe house. It has two houses, so one for Sylo to live in, since she has lived in a home beside us for so long that I won’t let them separate you two, and then a place for our family. It won’t be as big or nice as our house currently is, but the agent who called back with the new home information said it’s plenty big enough for us, a room for Niall and Emma, plus a separate nursery for this little one. I told them I wouldn’t even consider it without making sure you all were moved somewhere safe, just in case something happens.”

Bre smiled softly at her husband, taking in his earnest expression and the little crease that always appears between his eyebrows when he’s concerned. “It means a lot that you made sure that they’re taking care of us in case of anything. And I’m glad you’ll be with us tomorrow to help start the move. Plus, you get to tell Sis that she’s moving!” Bre laughed. “Eva has grown used to apartment life and wouldn’t bat an eye at being told to move, but Sylo…she’s going to give you hell!” Bre rubbed her rounded belly, wondering what this new chapter in life will hold, and then looked Luke in the eye. “Just try to come home to us. The mansion isn’t what made our place our home. It’s our family that does that.”

Luke sighed in relief and then smiled in wonder at his wife. “I should have handled this better. Thank you for being…you. And I know I said it earlier, but want you to know I mean it. You look beautiful tonight, love.”

I hope you don’t mind that I decided to blog a little scene that formed in my mind when I decided to change my landscape. I haven’t written dialogue for a long time, so please forgive any mistakes there! *grin* I just had this little movie in my mind and when I found Luna te Amo in the Destination Guide…*chef’s kiss* If you like a photogenic place, you MUST check their place out. The group is free to join, which gives you rez rights, too, although they have various seating arrangements in the different areas, which I took advantage of on the non-beach side of the property.

Time for giving credit where credit is due (with SLurls embedded when possible)…
