"New Beginnings"

"That was.."
"Did you know?"
"I had an inkling."
"And yet you never mentioned it before."
"I wasn't sure how you would take it."
"And how did I?"
"Admirably, Commander.... amazingly so."
"Want to do it again?"
"Are you up for it?"
"You be the judge."
"I think..."
"Well, you are more than ready."
"And you are very inspiring!"
"Flattery will get you everywhere this evening."
"Yeah, I know. Now come here."
"Barking orders already, *Captain*."
"Has a nice ring to it, don't you think?"
"Certainly. What is it?"
"I'm not sure."
"Tell me what you're feeling."
"Don't you know?"
"Besides that!"
"You calling me 'Captain' - it sounded odd and yet like something I have waited my entire life for."
"That's because you have."
"Yes, and I almost missed out on you while chasing that goal."
"I'm still here - right by your side."
"Thank goodness."
"What is it Deanna?
"Gods, I don't know why I am getting so emotional."
"It's ok... what were you going to say?"
"I would have waited for you my whole life."
"I would have waited for you too, Deanna."
"But you finally woke up."
"Me?!? I guess that is true though - at least the last few years. You have always been there."
"As have you."
"Why do you think it took us so long?"
"Maybe we weren't ready."
"You mean we needed to grow up."
"In a manner of speaking."
"I have always loved you Deanna."
"I know."
"This is a pretty serious conversation for our wedding night, Mrs. Riker."
"I just can't believe it is finally real. We are *finally* husband and wife and you are going to get your own ship."
"OUR ship. We are in this together."
"I have a few other ideas on what we can do together, Mr. Riker."
"You have the softest lips."
"You have the hardest.."
"Yes, *Sir*!"
"Counselor, that was light tripping fantastic!"
"You seem surprised."
"It isn't that -- it just seems different somehow."
"How so?"
"I am not sure. I can't put my finger on it."
"Put your finger on this."
"Oh no!"
"Worn out already?"
"You're insatiable!"
"I thought you loved that."
"Oh I do! But, I need a minute or else you may kill me."
"Just trying to prepare you for when I go through 'the phase'."
"I better start working on my stamina now."
"Thought you needed a minute."
"Minute's up."
"As are you."
"Quadruples, huh?"
"Or more."
"Good thing we have time."
"Time for what? That feels incredible!"
"Practice. Lots and lots of practice."
"We do have a great deal of time to make up for."
"Yes, that too."
"Do you feel that?"
"How could I not? It's so powerful!"
"Uh huh."
"Why is it so much stronger?"
"The bond is now complete."
"I thought..."
"No, that was only part of it."
"And the rest?"
"Was sealed earlier today during our ceremony."
"I didn't realize either."
"Deanna, love of my life... what do you want?"
"More. More of everything. Especially everything that includes you and our new life together."
"I know we are going to miss everyone on the Enterprise but we will be happy on the Titan too."
"As long as we are together - anything is possible."
"I love you, Imzadi."
"I love you too.. for eternity."

The End.
