I don't really know if this belongs here. I'm not asking for advice or anything I just felt like sharing.

My Captain is a very emotionally distant and cautious man. He opens up very rarely. I don't mind but that fact, I feel, makes this moment the more special.

We were talking in bed the other night and he just, seemingly out of the blue, told me that no one could ever replace me in his heart. Even if things didn't work out in the long run he can't imagine loving anyone as much as he loves me right now. He is the happiest he has ever been. (I'm paraphrasing.)

I was kind of overwhelmed with a feeling of joy I don't really think I've ever felt. I couldn't stop crying. We tell each other we love each other on the regular and have for years but this felt...different. I felt like...more.

I just wanted to share. Feel free to take this down if it's not appropriate~
