She heeded though, what she thought better judgment, settled for the relaxing sound of him breathing nearby, the replaying of his firm conviction in her head.
Michael drifted off to sleep. It wasnít deep however or long lasting.
Their bedroom door flew open, and the light suddenly switched on.
The second Michaelís eyes adjusted, and found Lucy, they, along with her terrified thoughts skidded to her husband on the floor, rubbing the sleep from his eyes, not yet as painfully awake as she.

There was no panic with him.
