Chase sat slouched on the bed in his red boxer briefs, his head hanging low, his forearms resting on his thighs, and his hands pressed together between his knees. “Forgive me?” he asked quietly.

Tears formed in Reno’s eyes. This man was complex, temperamental, and maddeningly traditional, but he was hers. She walked to him, knelt in front of him, and took his hands.

He wouldn’t look her in the eye.

Kissing his palms, she whispered, “You can never do anything that I won’t forgive.”

    Oh, I want to forgive him and I don’t even know what he’s done.

    Its sweet… But is it just me, or did she just give him a hall pass for saying that to him??? *Paranoid me*

    Beautiful visual of this scene. I fear she may regret that last line. Nice six.

    Lovely, lovely, lovely. I felt the emotion just from their postures. Good job.

    I love how humble Chase is in this scene. Reno’s making a big promise here, but something tells me she won’t regret it 🙂
