Kevin came into the kitchen he smelled breakfast and coffee and smiled. Fresh out of the shower and dressed in civilian clothes badge and gun attached to his belt he walked up behind Sam and wrapped his arms around her and gave a kiss to her neck.

"Good morning, beautiful," he said. "You spoil me."

Sam enjoyed mornings and making breakfast for herself and Kevin was something she looked forward to. She was trying out a new French toast recipe. She leaned back into him as he walked up behind her and kissed her.

“All the best for my husband.” She kissed the bottom of his jaw.

"You shouldn't try and do that too much," he told her. "You go back to work next week..." he pointed out.

Sam sighed. “I know...I still wouldn’t mind waking up a little extra early to make us some breakfast before we go to work.” She was going to miss being able to lounge around in her sweats and do nothing.

"I know but you shouldn't spoil me too much," he said, kissing her forehead. "And you have to let me have a turn sometimes," he said, knowing that he'd probably not be able to cook an egg if he tried.

Sam smiled as he kissed her forehead and she turned to face him and put a hand on his chest. "I promise to let you have a turn, sometimes." She knew he couldn't cook well, but if it would make him feel better, she could put up with burnt toast and over-cooked eggs every once in a while.

"There's fresh coffee in the pot, would you mind pouring me a cup and I'll bring over your plate?" She asked him. He knew just the way she liked it--three-fourths coffee, one-fourth milk and a tablespoon of sugar.

"Yeah, of course," he said, preparing their morning caffeine intake. Unlike his wife, he drank his black no need for sugar or milk. He brought both of the mugs to the table and sat down in his usual chair taking a sip of his. His work phone rang and he sighed, he silenced it, it could wait until he was at least on his way to work.

When she brought over his breakfast and placed it in front of him he pulled her closely and kissed her, "thank you. For everything you do."
