Thank you

Adrianna couldn't sleep. She'd spent the day on trying to unmash the message, which was ongoing. She needed to speak to Alex, she'd understand the current headspace she was in.

Adrianna looked over to a sleeping Leopold and smiled. Her fingers caressed his face softly, as her mind's inner narrator spoke:

"You are end game.

I look at you and I only see my future, not my past.

You give me strength when I feel powerless. When I still don't feel strong, you show me how protective you can be. You protect me, even when I feel undeserving of love.

You have filled in a lot of the blanks that I have given you. I don't understand how you see past it. Perhaps what has happened since has forgiven my transgressions in your eyes.

You make me feel like nothing ever happened, and then the past creeps up on me.

Constantine meant so much to me at one point, but the feelings seemed to be one sided. Firsts have a strange power over you. It's one of the reasons I left him; he knew the power it held and used it, so I left.

When you were with me though, I didn't feel weak. I felt a little mortified, but I felt OK. You held your own. You didn't seem to mind.

I don't know what I did to deserve you, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I don't see you as Ekosian and everything that comes with that in the realm of stereotypes. I see you as my husband to be and as someone I want to navigate life with. No matter how scary each turn is, I know I'll be OK.

When we get to Ekos, an active war zone, from what I understand, I won't be as scared because I know I have you. You protected me in the war zone when the holodeck malfunctioned, you'll do it again. I know it's not the same, but to me, it's close enough to give me an insight as to who you are."

Adrianna yawned and spoke out loud in her native tongue, in barely a whisper," I love you, no matter what-- especially because you love me regardless of my transgressions."
