I'd Rather Be With You (drabble)

My first drabble, based on a prompt from onabearskinrug.
Based on her prompt:  
Taking a break from apartment drama and cleaning ALL THE THINGS to post a fic prompt if it inspires anyone. Reminded me a lot of Ten2/Rose :-D

"I'm not here because I am supposed to be here or because I'm trapped here, but because I'd rather be with you than anywhere else in the world."
-Richard Bach, The Bridge Across Forever

Summary:  In the Wayward Son 'Verse, a year from Ten II's arrival into Pete's World.

She lay awake in the semi-darkness, watching his chest rise and fall. Manly, hairy arms lovingly, protectively, encircled her burgeoning midriff. An ethereal silver chord connects all four.

Glancing down at the gracefully long fingers embracing her bare hip, she smiled. She had watched the day that hand was set free, arcing through the air as it reached for a new life… a life as a new man in a new world where zeppelins filled the sky.

He planted his coral, his future, his soul, and his seed in fertile foreign soil, and all took root. He chose to stay.

Aww, thanks, L! I swear it's the first time I ever had to limit myself to 100 words, and I had no idea how difficult that can be. LOL!!

Glad you liked it!

Thanks, Tracy! I can't believe I actually made it exactly 100 words. Chopping it back took longer than writing it. LOL!!
