Title: Fly Me to the Moon
Pairing/Characters: Nathan/Heidi
Rating: PG13
Spoilers: Season 1
Summary: Prompt - Moon
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

In another world Nathan would put the kids to bed early, dismiss the staff for the night and set out a romantic dinner just for his wife. They'd talk and laugh and let the pressures of life, politics and family, fall away until they felt as young and in love as they'd been as newlyweds.

He'd remember what wine was her favorite. She'd make that adorable face he always liked, wrinkling her nose when she smiled gleefully. They'd talk about nothing and everything, the past and the future, and none of it would be laden with responsibilities, just hope and idealism.

After it all he would take Heidi in his arms and fly her high above the city. He'd hold her tight in his arms, tell her he loved her and then kiss her in the clouds by the light of the full moon.

Only Nathan has to live in this world. In this world he hears the tiny squeak of Heidi's wheelchair in the hall as she goes to their suite to get ready for bed while he's still in his study working.

He sighs, knowing she'll never find out that he can fly and he'll never be free.

For anyone who actually notices me publishing a bunch of unusual fandoms in one shots, it's because I made myself a goal of publishing at least one fic in each of my fandoms before year's end. Last year I waited too long and had trouble fitting them all in so I'm trying to get them done earlier this year.

Amusingly (to me anyway) when I took copies of headers from 2010 to use for these three fic I just wrote tonight to back publish on the 24th, 25th and 26th I found that while the header links were the wrong months, they were already set to the 24th, 25th and 26th. /grins/ I love it when that sort of thing happens!

(And yes, I'm backdating to fit more fic in. So sue me! LOL)

Oh, so bittersweet and sad. Very well-written, I like when a writer can get a lot things said in few words. :)
