Remorse Gil felt deep inside, how could he? Looking at his wife he had to ask, was it worth the conflict? Uprooting them both when one was happy the other wasn?t. Why couldn?t they reach a happy medium.
Why did they have to play these games.
He?d let her go, get her cry out and after they ate, try once more to convince Sara that she wanted this change as much as he longed for.
Watching her gently closing the door he started to get dinner ready.
Simple salad, stuffed eggplant. Moving around the small kitchen Gil thought of what he wanted to say to Sara.
Convincing her when it dawned on him where they both could move to and find happiness.
As he muttered around finishing up, he set the table and lite one single candle, he could hear whimpers coming from the bathroom.Love Always Wins
Knocking on the bathroom door ?Sara open up, Sara please open the door! I have something to tell you.? She wiped her eyes and slowly opened the door.
He looked at Sara and felt a change of heart, he felt a warmth come over him. What did it matter where they lived as long as he was with her. Putting his arms around her shoulders, he brought her towards him. As they kissed he could fill Sara relaxing beneath his grip.
What seemed like eternity, Gil was the first to release his lips. He looked deep into her dark brown eyes.
?My love come sit.? they walked arm and arm and sat on the small couch.
Gil took a deep breath in as he spoke ?Sara my love whatever you want, I?ll be happy with. Let?s stay here in Vegas or San Francesco, wherever you want to go I?ll follow you.?
Sara looked puzzled ?But?..?
Gil put his finger to her lips. ?No it is I who has been selfish, only wanting what I want. Not listening to my one true love. Lets go to bed, and in the morning we?ll pack our bags and head back home.?
Trying to tilt her head up to see what she was thinking, she whispers ?But, I thought you wanted to move. I don?t understand? What changed?? not waiting for his reply she spoke again. ?If you are sure??
Gil ? Yes I know more than anything I am sure. When I said the words ?I do? I meant it. I do, want to stay here in Vegas with you.? they kissed again, and deep inside Sara wasn?t quite convince Gil wanted to truly stay. A idea came to her. Slowly pulling away from his kiss, she looked at him.
?I have a plan that might make us both happy.? looking at her, he knew that look all to well. ?Okay Sara what is your plan??
Choosing the right words, she slowly laid out to Gil what they could do to make them both happy.
?You always wanted to do research, and I have always wanted to save the environment, correct?? Sara didn?t wait for a reply, she kept going ? I had a offer to go to Costa Rica a year ago, at that time I wasn?t ready and turned them down. They told me the offer was always available, and they have a small research facility that you and I both would enjoy. All I have to do when we get back into town is make one phone call, and we are on our way. So Gil what do you think? You could still teach and do whatever you choose to and this would solve both our issues. Guess moving on isn?t so bad, is it? ?
He couldn?t utter a word, he stared at his wife speechless. Sara looked at her husband, he looked concerned, she couldn?t understand why this confused him.
?Gil this is exactly what you wanted, to leave, and know that I?m game, why aren?t you? Say something please!??
?A, well, it?s rather a shocker my love, my answer is?
