Blair is just perfect!

The Keeper of My Heart
I was alone as usual at the loft. Blair was out on another date.

One would think that it might be a good idea to bring the subject up
and discuss it with him, but I don't have the nerve. It's been years
since I've been with a man and I'm just not that sure of myself. Not
to mention that Blair is a babe magnet. What could he possibly see in
a tired, old cop?
Every morning when we leave the loft, I feel like he's taking my
heart and my spirit with him. I love him that much. But I have to
learn to live with it.
He's wondering why I'm not dating anyone, so I guess I'll have to go
on a date for one night. That's what my life is now, a bunch of one-
night-stands. Meaningless dinner, never sex.
Sometimes I wish that Naomi were here to tell me what I should do.
She would be wise, I just know it. And she might give me the push I
need. Why am I even wondering about it, nothing is going to be said
or done? He's the keeper of my heart, but only I know it.

him, just not tonight. It's time for me to sleep and dream of my
life with Blair. At least I have him in my dreams.
