Arabella awoke as the light of day fought its way through the thick curtains. She tenderly rolled over, knowing that Sebastian had left her side hours ago. A deep sigh escaped her lips as they pulled back into a smile. It had been one of the most peaceful nights she had ever experienced, not a single nightmare, not even a single dream.

(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
