YOU KNOW I WOULD - vallie lynn watson

That night in the New Orleans hotel, she had said, “I’m not going to let you sleep, you know,” and later, at the end of them, he thanked her for that, said it represented what he’d loved about their entire fast-forward of a relationship, that she knew their time was finite and precious. She then said that her favorite part of that whole night was sitting, talking, leaned back against him, looking at the Mississippi, watching time move the stars across the sky from one side of the river to the other, and he said he didn’t remember that part.
