The Pause ~ Promises of Someday

by Michelle K

Catherine is ...
He remembered a time when he'd have sought Devin's wisdom, eager to know the spark of a passing touch ... the magic of a stolen kiss. Devin would have opened the door for him ... stretched the boundaries of his world ... allowed him to believe, if only for a moment, that such wonders might be his.
But Devin had gone ... and with him, hope.
Until Catherine.
Her light, her possibility.
She opened the door, took his hand, and stepped through. With him. There were no words for such a dream. No words. She was ... everything. And ... more.
                                                                                                                             ... more  ... than a helper.

Welcome to Everything, Michelle! "She opened the door...took his hand...stepped through...with him..." What a perfect picture! Thank you!!! I'm smiling to see it! Nancy

"She opened the door, took his hand, and stepped through. With
him." This is so perfect, Mich! I am so happy you're here, sweetie.

This passage: eager to know the spark of a passing touch ... the magic of a stolen kiss ... sigh. I could just hear this conversation between them, had things gone a bit differently for Devin years ago. This is such a tender moment, Michelle, and you grace them with dignity and maturity. Lovely, indeed.

This is lovely, Michelle, and it reminds me of the balcony scene in this episode, where Vincent tells Catherine that Devin was the only one "irresponsible enough to dream dreams that included me." Now those dreams that include him are Catherine's.

Welcome to the group! I'm so glad that you're here with us.

You too!!! Reminding us of all the dreams lost to Vincent "Until Catherine." Darn it I need another tissue!.

Welcome, Michelle! :)

This is just...lovely. You've captured the miracle of their love so perfectly---that their dreams encompass each other, that there are no limits. Fantastic job!

Wonderful image of the younger brother having out-paced the elder in the realm of love, Michelle! Such a perfect point, and so eloquently made! Now that we've got you, we're not letting you go!

Such imagery Michelle! *SIGH* so wonderful! so beautiful!
"there are no words" how very Vincent. :)
Spectacular! Loved this.

Oh MY! I didn't even know I had comments here. Thanks so much to ALL of you ... to my "Everything..." girls for including me, and your sweet, encouraging words. I was so nervous to post my first contribution to the site, but it's so wonderful to be here among such talent.

Nancy, you are a darling for giving me your words and attention. You know how much you mean to me. I can honestly say that V and C opened the door for me, as well ... and let me to you!

Thank you, Brit - you are a wonderful support! What wonders do my eyes see now that I share the vision with such friends?
