Oh, Nathan, Nathan.
I know you were crushed when we broke up, and believe me, it was as difficult for me as it was for you. While I was disappointed and hurt, I never really was angry. I just thought we needed some time apart to evaluate our relationship and I appreciate you gave me that.
I will admit to a flirtation with Adam, but you and I were on a BREAK. And you know, he’s a great guy but he’s sure no Captain Mal. I as much as admitted this in our last communication. I also have to admit I was a little distracted by the pretty.
But pretty is as pretty does. I did pine for you. I watched my DVD of Firefly over and over, wondering where we went wrong, contemplating how something as small as a piece of twine could come between us. And I cried and cried. My life was missing something, something I couldn’t fill with watching “The Voice”. It just wasn’t the same.
But then, something happened. Something wondrous. That something wondrous was the San Diego Comic Con, and there was this:
I could tell you were trying to woo me back, especially when you let the restraining order expire. I tried to stay away, but I just couldn’t deny the bond between us any longer, especially after I watched the Firefly panel presentation.
I fell in love all over again.
See, I’ve never seen Adam getting choked up over the love of his fans. I’m sure he loves his fans, but not like you. The story about how you protected the females of your cast; the obvious respect of your crew; the fact you are aging mighty well and are looking really fine; the fact I can’t stop fantasizing about you in a pretty floral bonnet…
And then, when I thought it couldn’t get any better, it did.
I knew immediately this was your way of apologizing for the Twine Incident. Your way of telling me our love is unbreakable, transcending time, space, and cancellation. Your way of expressing how much you want me, NEED me back in your life.
Apology accepted, Nater-tater. Totally and 100% accepted.
Relationships are never easy, Nathan. I think we’ve both learned something from this painful experience, and have come out with a bond stronger than ever. So, I guess we can thank the twine for getting us back on track. Communication is key, and now I understand.
You are, and always will be my one and only captain. Forever.
Sorry, I had to answer the door. Thank you for the restraining order. That was quick. <3
