Willow stared at Kennedy, her bottom lip trembling. There were tears rising in the young Slayer's big, brown eyes. "I know Tara was a huge part of your life, Willow, and I know you loved and miss her and probably always will. But is there a chance," she pleaded, "at all that you could ever let go of her enough to love me, too?"
A fresh well of tears sprang from Willow's green eyes. She lovingly clasped Kennedy's face, but there was an urgency in her grasp as well, an urgency caused by her desire not to lose this beautiful, wonderful, and loving woman, too. "Oh, baby, I already love you! I do love Tara still, and you're right: I probably always will. But I love you, too, and you, Kennedy, are my future! Tara's my past. I'm sorry!"
Kennedy smiled through her pain. A part of her wanted to ask Willow, if Tara still lived, who she would choose, but she didn't dare. Instead, she held to her face and teased her lightly, "You talk too much, you know that?" Then, she spent the rest of the night showing her beloved why she should choose her with passionate loving.
