I don't Want to Miss a Thing
By Kara

It had been a long hard day for the Nomad Crew. Though he could hardly keep his eyes open, Sinbad wasn't able to sleep. He thought- how so often in the last time- of Bryn. With the time he travelled with her, he slowly realised how he felt for her. He knew that there was something more than friendship.

After midnight as everything was quiet on the Nomad, he got up. He just couldn't sleep and so he decided to get a little bit fresh air. But on his way up on deck, he passed the door to Bryn's cabin. He stopped and got in. Bryn was sleeping yet. For Sinbad, she looked like an angel- an angel with dark hair and dark eyes. Sinbad felt the magic all around her. He sat down beside her and reminded a song he had heard a few weeks ago:

I could stay awake

Just to hear you breathing

Watch your smile while you are sleeping

While you're far away and dreaming

I could spend my life

In this sweet surrender

I could stay lost in this moment forever

Every moment spend with you is a moment I treasure

Don't want to close my eyes

Don't want to fall asleep

'Coz I'd miss you, baby

And I don't want to miss a thing

Even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream would never do

I'd still miss you, baby

And I don't want to miss a thing

Lying close to you

Feeling your heart beating

And I'm wondering what's you're dreaming

Wondering if it's me you're seeing

And then I kiss your eyes

And thank god, we're together

I just want to stay with you

In this moment forever

I don't wan to miss one kiss

I don't want to miss one smile

I just want to be with you

Right here with you

Just like this

I just want to hold you close

And feel your heart so close to mine

And stay here in this moment

For all the rest of time

Sinbad sighed and touched Bryn on the cheek. She smiled. "You must have a beautiful dream, Bryn", whispered he.

"Sinbad", Bryn whispered in her sleep.

Sinbad smiled. She says his name in sleep? "I love you Bryn", Sinbad whispered and got up.

In this moment Bryn opened her eyes. "Sinbad? What are you doing here?".

Sinbad shrugged his shoulders. "I just wanted to see if you're alright."

Bryn got up to and looked into Sindbad eyes. "I'm alright, though you waked me up. But what is with you? Why are you awake?"

Sinbad shrugged his shoulders again. "I wasn't able to sleep. I had to think about some... difficult things..."

"Difficult things?", asked Bryn.

Sinbad nodded. He looked away, somewhere in the darkness. "I thought about us. About my feelings for you....", he whispered. "That's why I'm sitting here in the night. In the last days I realised what you mean to me. I think I'm in love with you" He felt a hand on his cheek. Slowly he turned his face to Bryn who looked at him. In her eyes he saw the thing he was always searching for- love.

"I love you too, Sinbad", Bryn said before they lent forward to kiss each other.
