After years of hiding his deepest feelings, tonight he was like a volcano ready to explode. He took Becca in his arms. As he found her lips there was a soft moan, and she melted into him.
A few minutes passed before he eased his lips away. “Listen, ok?” he asked with a sudden urgency. “While we were together, I had everything. When I lost you, everything was gone.”
She listened to the words come out of his mouth─ lyrics to the most beautiful song.
“What I’m trying to say is I love you. I always have, and I always will,” he said, confirming it with another kiss. “I wanted to tell you how I felt at the cabin, but it didn’t quite work out the way I planned. I actually wanted to tell you that night in Matt and Miranda’s basement.” Smiling, his teeth illuminated the darkness around his face. “I didn’t go over there to check on Matt.”
When Becca felt her heart complete the un-breaking cycle, she didn’t hold back. She caressed his face. “I love you too Caleb, so much,” she said, rising up on her toes to tenderly kiss his cheek.
For a long, silent moment they held each other tight but because of the abrupt, extreme change in her emotional state, his tank top was getting soaked. “Are you okay?” he asked, giving her a squeeze.
“Yeah, I’m okay,” she cried. “I’m just really happy.”
“Do you think you would be able to come over to my place for a while so we can talk?”
Nodding, she wiped her eyes. “Are you staying here?”
“No, I’m next door at the Breakers. Your place was booked.”
She took his hand. “I’ll call my grandma when we get there.”
Once inside Caleb’s condo, Becca leaned against the counter and watched him open the refrigerator....

...ing into town to see a movie. On the way out to the rental car, Becca brought up the idea of skipping the movie and going back to his condo. “We could buy a movie on TV,” she suggested.
Caleb shook his head, “I don’t think that’s such a good idea.”
“We’re probably better off staying in public places,” he said, breaking into a guilty smile. “For the short term anyway.”
With a seductive glare, Becca ran her finger the length of his chest. “Isn’t that a tragic waste of a parentless condo?”
“Yes it is,” he sighed, opening the car door for her.
After the movie, Caleb walked Becca back to her condo and kissed her under the porch light. Sad their time in Florida was coming to an end; they gave each other a lingering hug goodnight. Caleb handed over the car keys, and the plan was to meet for an early morning walk on the beach before his flight back to Minnesota.
