Notes: I managed to sneak another song into one of my fan fics. Go figure.

The rest of that day was pretty much spent in silence. The two stayed confined to their bedroom, except for lunch and dinner. Abbey busied herself reading a book, trying to force herself to not think about the recent events that have so completely flipped her life upside down. Jed, he attempted to concentrate on all the work that had piled up on his desk from the day. Stuff that required the President's attention.

A few short hours after Abbey had begun reading her book, she finished it. After carefully setting it down on the end table by the couch, she turned her attention to her husband. She sat there, watching him for some time. Then, she stood up and went over to the stereo. Once there, she put a CD in.

Jed caught Abbey out of the corner of his eye, and just stared at her. He wasn't sure what she was doing, so he just watched. Then the music began to play, You've got a way, by Shania Twain.

You've got a way with me Somehow you got me to believe In everything that I could be I've gotta say-you really got a way

Abbey left the stereo and walked to the foot of their bed.

You've got a way it seems You gave me faith to find my dreams You'll never know just what that means Can't you see... you got a way with me

Jed followed suit, and met his wife by the bed.

It's in the way you want me It's in the way you hold me The way you show me just what love's made of It's in the way we make love

Standing there, Jed began to brush his wife's hair behind her back. Abbey ran her fingers through his hair, as they began to kiss.

You've got a way with words You get me smiling even when it hurts There's no way to measure what your love is worth I can't believe the way you get through to me

It's in the way you want me It's in the way you hold me The way you show me just what love's made of It's in the way we make love

They moved over to his side of the bed. Jed carefully laid her down and then climbed on top of her.

Oh, how I adore you Like no one before you I love you just the way you are

He gently began to caress her check, then brought his head down where his lips met with her lips.

It's in the way you want me Oh, It's in the way you hold me The way you show me just what love's made of It's in the way we make love

It's just the way you are

When the music stopped, Abbey whispered into Jed's ear as he kissed her neck, "I love you, Jed."

Jed brought his head around, so he could be eye to eye with his beautiful bride, "I love you, Abbey."

A few minutes had passed and Jed continued his actions with his wife as he noticed an unease in her facial expression. "What's wrong?"

"Nothing. Just continue." Abbey said with pain in her voice.

"If I'm hurting you...I'll stop...We don't have to do this."

"No! Don't stop."

"Are you sure?"

"I can deal with this pain, I just need to be with you, completely." Abbey said as she tilted her head to the side.

Jed reached up and grabbed the back of her head and brought it closer to him, where he did as he was told.

For just one night, they were destined to feel normal, like the past two day's events had never happened. They were the only two people who existed in the world, if only for one night.
