Kitty drops down beside her and beams up at her. "I knew you'd like it!"
"What . . . is it?" Rachel asks uncertainly, watching the myriad of hearts swooping over the computer's otherwise black screen.
Kitty shrugs a shoulder. "Just a screen saver. It's like that old stars one that most people are used to seeing except with hearts because I love you. I know it's corny, but -- "
"I do like it," Rachel interjects, grinning, "corny or not." She watches the hearts sweeping over the screen and bouncing toward her. "It's neat!" Examining the program closer, she adds softly, "I bet it took you a long time to make."
"Not as long as you think. Besides, it was worth it to see your smile."
"You always find ways to make me smile."
"I always will," Kitty whispers in her ear, her lips brushing the top of her ear. "That's why I'm here."
"It's only fitting," Rachel says, turning toward her.
