And he looked at the stars and a bright bit of moon out the night window, sat down Indian-style on his side of the bed and meditated, in his briefs, sitting up, for a moment, and when his thoughts had settled back into the present moment he dedicated his day to the good of others, and bowed to himself.

And he laid back. And because she was so far off, unobtrusive and unneedy, he rolled over to her and spooned her, holding her, strong, much larger than she, and in her already-halfway dreamland she smiled and nudged backward into his protective warmth, and they slept dark dreams in gray sheets...
