It Is You I Have Loved

PAIRING: If I told you, I would take away the reason for reading the story, therefore I will get no feedback because no one read it, and I feed off of feedback (maybe that is why they call it 'feed...back'), making me starve and die... So really, if I told you, it would be my demise... You're just gonna have to read it. Oh darn (note the sarcasm, lol).

DISCLAIMERS: Well, I never claimed to own any of the characters, so how can I have a disclaimer? BUT, I wouldn't argue if Dinah were to come up to me and say 'Own me, the WB doesn't take good care of me', I would A) smile, nod and whisper 'thank you god' to the stars B) wonder when I was waking up from the semi hellish nightmare (because it wasn't real) or C) definitely not argue!!!*sigh* Okay, I am finally back from the Land of Wishful thinking.

RATING: PG (Puke-Gag) because of the fluff.

SUMMARY: A prank gone wrong... or right...?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Life is a cookie. No no... Well, that's true, and it better be a big one!! Anyway, the song is It Is You I Have Loved All Along by Dana Glover. This song is found at the end of Shrek, and after I found out the artist who sings it, I felt it would make a great songfic. For those who may have read other stories by me will know that this song is too fluffy even by my standards, so I apologise for that. There is more to the song, but I like this snippet that is in the end of Shrek so much that I memorised it, so that is what I want in the story, so there! *sticks out tongue*


I don't know why I decided to stay over. Oh yeah, that's why. Her. She asked me to stay over, so I agreed. I walked into her room as quietly as I could, knowing she was asleep. I smile softly at the music flowing softly. She has a CD playing on repeat every night, and tonight she's picked Dana Glover. I walked over to her bed as the music got a voice.

There is something that I see
In the way you look at me
There's a smile, there's a truth
In your eyes

I pulled the blanket over her shoulders and watched the moonlight sprinkle over her blonde strands. My heart sped up. How could this be?

What an unexpected way
On this unexpected day
Could it be, this is where I belong?

I mean, how could I be so blind? While I was chasing after a certain unreachable woman, this- this ANGEL stood by me and watched, her heart breaking a little more each time I said a name that wasn't hers. I'm glad someone took off the blindfolds.

It is you I have loved all along
There's no more mystery
It is finally clear to me
You're the home my heart's
Searched for so long

It is you I have loved all along

She stirs, softly saying my name. "I'm here." I whisper, getting into the bed beside her. I gather my jewel into my arms. She seem to sleep easier. Her arms drape around me, and she sinks into her pillow once more.

Oh, over and over
I'm filled with emotions
As I look
Into your perfect face...

I lay my head gently next to hers and let my blonde locks blend with hers. I don't know why she says she hates her hair being the way it is. I think it is perfect, just like she is. "It is you I have loved all along, Gabby Andrews." I whispered to her as Heaven ended and my dreams began.
