The Warmth Underwater

She wasn't sure what had woken her up, the tapping of light spring rain on the roof or the instinctive feeling of someone watching her. Hallie wasn't exactly a light enough sleeper to sense something like that, but the feeling was strong, and stirred her wide awake.

She arose from the couch and walked closer to her multistory window only to peer into darkness. She was intent on seeing something. After all what could have possibly woken her up with out a sound? Whatever it was, it felt powerful within her, and would not let up until she sought out what it was. The view through the window pane only looked like rippling waters through the rain, it was like being underwater and trying to look up. Instead of trying to see through uncertainty any longer, Hallie made her way to the front door deciding to brave it outside, even if she did get lost in the storm.

At first when she saw the obnoxiously loud black motorcycle roar onto her driveway, she thought herself so stupid for not knowing that it would be him outside. Of course it would be him, it was always him if she felt the least bit of feeling inside of her.

A white smile shone through the grey as he cut the engine to the motorcycle, then the grey turned into blue, the same kind of blue that shone on that Christmas morning in Folsom. For some reason her mind always trailed back to the time.

"Has it been a couple of days yet?" he called to her.

Hallie felt the water soak through her sheer white chemise, but it was hardly the thing she was aware of. Before he could do another thing, she walked quickly to him, quicker and quicker soon turning into a full sprint.

She hopped onto the front of the motorcycle facing him, so close that she was forced to put his arms around him. Then forced to kiss him, and forced to allow him to lift her effortlessly to his face. Not caring to catch her breath, only caring to continue, she wrapped her legs around his waist balancing herself as she put forth everything she wanted to do at the lighthouse.

He interrupted her to press his drenched hair to her cheek, breathing her in again, then ripping the robe off to the ground, kissing her bare shoulders, and up to her neck. Hallie turned her head to the side, the warmth even in the cold rain was too much. In the distance, she saw a light circling the sea.

"How did you know that I would be at the lighthouse? That I would be here now? How do you always know?" she whispered mesmerized by the turquoise eyes that stood out from the backdrop of the black sea.

"I knew because the light was shining for me, to come home, wasn't it?"

"Always, William Fenris," she whispered.

"Huh?" he chuckled.

"Nothing," she shushed him by kissing his lips that were moist from the rain. "Want to finish what we started up there?"

"Only if you are aware of the fact my name is Christian West. Sorry to disappoint you," he cockily raised an eyebrow.

"That name could never disappoint me," she kissed him on the temple. "Come on," she led him back inside the house.

"So who's William?"

"Try to keep your voice down, Abby is asleep. William is, well it's a long story," Hallie shook her head laughing. How could she possibly explain?

"Come on tell me," Christian persisted.

"Well you know the lighthouse? This man named William Fenris owned it a long time ago, he had a wife named Natalie. He went out to sea and never came back, so she drowned herself. I had this strange dream about it, that you were him, and I was her," she attempted at retelling the story but felt horribly embarrassed.

"Interesting," he nodded.

"I used to think it was silly she killed herself, but I get it now."

"The whole can't live without you thing seems pretty legit," Christian said softly.

"Are you trying to tell me something?" she teased.

His face grew serious, and as a response to her question, he picked her up by the waist and pressed her against the living room wall. With the robe still outside and probably blown away by now, her chemise was next to hit the floor. He pinned her hands against the wall letting out his own frustration and pain of not being with her all this time onto her lips. As he continued to re-explore her body, they somehow reached the couch Hallie had been sleeping on. Before they decided to go any further each sat up panting, still soaked.

Outside the sun shone in a fury against the rain clouds in it's duty to mark day. A sensation that felt like the sunrise looked wrapped around her hand.

"Would you like to go for a ride?" Christian proposed taking her hand.

Hallie nodded, forgetting to ask where they would be going, but the thought of a motorcycle ride with Christian West made all common sense fly out the window. Before she could exit the front door, she heard the creaking of Abby walking around upstairs. Damn she got up early. It had to have been only six in the morning.

Christian noticed Hallie staring upwards and when she looked back to him he had grown furious.

"He's here?" Christian roared.

"No! You have the wrong idea!"

"Yeah as f*****g usual," he muttered storming out the front door. Hallie ran after him in disbelief that he'd jump to conclusions so quickly.

"You idiot, its just Abby up there!" Hallie yelled across the driveway. He was already on his motorcycle ready to go but he hesitated starting it up.

"Come with me then," he demanded.

"Are you serious?" Hallie asked, looking down at her white chemise which she hoped wasn't too see through for any awake neighbors to see. Obviously some common sense had returned to her.

"What will it be then? Everything is on your terms after all. Do you want me to stay, do you want me to go-,"

"I always want you to stay," Hallie insisted lightly stroking around his jaw line. "But with Abby here, its just not a good time you know? I wasn't expecting you."

"Are you sure it's Abby in there and not David?" he growled throwing her hand off and starting up his motorcycle.

"You can come and see for yourself!" Hallie yelled over the engine, but it was too loud for him to here and he wildly drove off going faster than she had ever seen him go.

"S**t," she cursed herself, picking up her robe that was still in the driveway. Why was she always so stupid with him? Why couldn't she keep him around for just one second?


Hallie went back inside, hoping that Abby had just gone to the bathroom or something and went back to sleep, but was startled to see her standing at the other end of the doorway. "Abby!" she jumped. Had she been watching the whole time? Abby looked just as alarmed as alarmed, almost disturbed.

"Abby what's wrong?"

"I woke up because I heard talking. Were you just out in the rain?" Abby asked utterly confused.

"It's a long story," Hallie sighed. "Christian showed up just now. As you can tell things obviously didn't go well," Hallie knew she must have looked so disheveled and odd.

"Oh Hallie, the thing between Christian and you isn't real. I'll help get you out of this, you'll be okay," Abby promised tiredly.

"I thought you liked him? I'm surprised to hear you say that what he and I had wasn't real."

"Maybe it was, sometime ago, but not anymore sweetie. My goodness you must be freezing."

No not yet, Hallie thought. She knew the warmth from seeing Christian would last until she was in need of more, but until she gave up everything, coldness would always remain a permanent part of her life. It was too bad she didn't that ride, maybe the warmth would have lasted a little longer.
