Breathe in, breathe out.

A simple process. One that Elle usually never stopped to watch in people. Sleeping or otherwise.

And yet, with Ash, she seemed to forget that. She tended to sleep lighter than him, so she occasionally woke up just to see him curled up asleep next to her.

And she'd lie there for what seemed like an endless moment, listening to that simple little process. Breathe in, breathe out. Rinse. Repeat.

Elle couldn't tell you why she seemed to watch him when she didn't with others, but she could tell you that it made her feel satisfied. That for just for the hours when Ash could sleep, he seemed at peace. They were short moments, but it gave Elle a peace of mind.

That's when she'd curl up closer to him and try to go back to sleep. Listening and feeling the rise and fall of his chest as he kept up the process.

Breathe in, breathe out.

It was never hard to drift back after that.
