Summary: You prepare to move out even as Steve does his very best to convince you to stay
Warnings: Language, marriage problems, some serious angst like honestly I am so sorry, BUT ALSO SOME LIFE-SAVING FLUFF
A/N: Finally finished! A very intense and heartfelt thank you to @aubzylynn the love and light of my life for helping me through all of the anxiety and writer’s block. The song of this section is “Love in the Dark” by Adele. This one is tough, but I promise the next part will be much lighter. Stick with me, guys. I’ll get you that HAPPY ENDING IF IT’S THE LAST THING I DO!
mind was a jumbled mess. There was so much to do, so much to take care of, and
though you knew how vitally important it was to get every step of this process
of separation exactly right, you couldn’t focus. But it wasn’t the endless
scraps of paper denoting all of the things you needed to pack, not the glaring
debt you now owed to Tony for procuring and purchasing a beautiful three
bedroom apartment for you, Maggie, and James when you had him – a debt he
assured you did not exist – that preoccupied your thoughts. Nor was it the
precarious pile of boxes, the few pieces of furniture Steve insisted you take,
the fact that the movers were supposed to be here soon and God you
weren’t ready to leave. Even the wind and rain lashing against the windows and
that scratchiness at the back of your throat that signaled you were getting
sick again did not once draw your attention.

“Why do you write sad things?” is one of the hardest questions I’ve always been asked.
How could I answer that? How could I tell you that all I have is sadness, and all I can share to the world is sadness? How could I tell you that every time I get a little glimpse of happiness, I always just save it for myself, keeping it close to my heart, memorizing every details and feelings, and not writing it down because writing it down feels a lot like giving it away, like I am letting that little happiness go. How could I tell you that I write sad things to purge it out from my system? That it is impossible to write sad things without sadness consuming you to the core to the point that all you can do is to bleed it out on the paper. How could I tell you that? That I write sad things to let it out, hoping that one day it would never come back, that maybe one day, I will finally succeed in writing all my sadness away.
Whitney Houston released “Saving All My Love For You” with her 1985 debut album Whitney Houston. The song was originally sung by Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr., but Whitney Houston’s cover was far more successful than their’s.
“Saving All My Love For You” was Houston’s first of many songs to chart at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song is about a love affair with a married man and the woman’s pledge to wait for him. This song is much more meaningful, heartfelt, and ballad-y than other songs on the same album, namely the pop hit “How Will I Know”. With “Saving All My Love For You”, Whitney Houston won her first Grammy Award in 1986 for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
“Saving All My Love For You” is often used during weddings for the couple’s first dance. The song is sweet, romantic, heartfelt, and sentimental.
