Author's Notes: It's cold, the wind is blowing, but it's still a beautiful night, and it got me thinking...

He loves her most when she's not there.

He loves her when her face is half hidden away, coyly covered by the dark curtain of shadow. It enchants him to watch the shadow slide away, slowly but surely, to reveal more of her countenance. He likes the inevitable tease as the shadows take her again, hiding her from his hungry gaze.

And, God help him, he even loves her when she brings out the beast in him, her face full and shining with an eerie beauty. How could he not, when she calls to him, caresses him, sets his blood to boiling? Even then he loves her, and he raises his voice to her in lupine praise.

He loves her, adores her, worships her. It seems to him that he’s loved her forever, though knows his life would be simpler without her. He also knows that she is worth the sacrifice she demands of him. Of course he'd prefer to adore her without the payment she insists upon, but it's never been his choice to make.

But even so, he loves her most when she's not there.
