As they lay beside one another slowly catching their breath, Ryan felt contentment for the first time in a long time. He turned to look at Calleigh and saw her lips curve into a smile that was just for him. And once again he was glad that he had taken in a lecture that she had given a few years ago about forensics, since it had been her lecture that had led to him joining the Miami-Dade Crime Lab.
“What are you thinking about?”
”Not much,” Ryan said as he rolled over onto his stomach so he could watch her.
”You’re always thinking too much, Ryan Wolfe.”
”And that’s why you love me,” Ryan jokingly said.
”One of the many reasons.”
Her eyes closed as his hand lazily traced patterns on her stomach. Calleigh sighed as the moment seemed to stretch forever and Ryan didn’t think that there was any other place that he wanted to be than beside her in her bed. He pulled her into an embrace and was about to fall asleep when her phone rang.
“It never fails, does it?” Calleigh sighed as she reached for the phone, “Every time you have a perfect moment, work has to ruin it.”
”I’ll make coffee,” Ryan said as she answered the phone.
Even the intrusion of their work didn’t seem to shatter his feeling of contentment. He looked at her as she wrote down the details before he made his way to her kitchen to make the coffee she would need. He knew that there would always be other perfect moments between the two of them.
