Happy Anniversary Ezria! We’ve been blessed with five entire seasons of Aria and Ezra’s love story. Even though their journey has been far from perfect and definitely has been rough, I know they will get their happy ending eventually. And even though their story wasn’t what we originally thought (*glares at writers*) it was still love. The day they first laid eyes on each other, they fell in love. I’m so proud of Lucy and Ian for bringing Aria and Ezra’s to life with their insane chemistry!

This is FINALLY the end of the series! It only took me like six years to finish it… Goodness. I hope it was everything you wanted and more! :)
If this is your first time seeing this series, start here. :)
Four days. Four more days until it was over. Win or lose. It would be over. He didn’t care about the outcome. It was just a show. It was just a fake trophy. At least this is what he tried to tell himself. And this was certainly what he told everyone else. Being honest, he did care. More than he would admit to anyone but himself. He didn’t even tell Meryl. He didn’t want to put that pressure on her. He didn’t want her to know how badly he wanted to win. He felt weak for admitting it even to himself. Because this season, these past three months, this experience, wasn’t about the end. It was about the journey. The journey they had just taken together. And their new journey that was about to begin.
Everyone around them knew. Everyone knew he was more in love with her than he ever could have imagined. Everyone knew he would do anything to make her happy. They all knew. Because he wouldn’t hide it. He couldn’t hide. Meryl spent the past few weeks trying to do just that. Trying to play it off, as though there was nothing there. As though they didn’t spend every night falling asleep together and every morning waking up next to each other. But Maks couldn’t. He smiled whenever he saw her. He held her as close as he could as though she might disappear if he let go. And if anyone had any doubts, their freestyle was sure to take care of that.
He thought about their rehearsal that morning, putting together the pieces of the freestyle while silently cursing the cameras and people in the room. He felt as though they didn’t belong there. As though they weren’t allowed to intrude on such a private moment. And he hated the fact that millions of people would be watching this dance. Though he loved that he would be able to share his love for Meryl with the world, and through such a passionate medium, it belonged to her. At least that was how he created it. For her.
I’m crying, this was beautiful!! This was worth the wait
The sun was setting outside the window. The room was glowing orange at the moment. Soon, darkness would settle quickly. Meryl sat on the floor, her eyes closed and her legs straight out in front of her. She finally allowed herself to admit it. Now that the entire journey was coming to an end, she could feel it. The exhaustion, the physical and mental stress she was under, the dread. But why dread? Why did feel a sense of dread and fear as she sat there, listening to the song hum softly through the air? What did she fear?
“The end,” she whispered to herself, not loud enough for Maks to hear. He was out in the center of the room, shaking his head and trying to figure out what was next. Next in the dance. In the choreography. Meryl opened her eyes and watched him as she also tried to figure out what was next. Next for her. For them.
Because she was afraid of the end. Of what would happen next. How easy would it be for this to just be over? They had so little time left. Only a number of days. She tried not to count. It felt like a countdown to uncertainty. She didn’t like that. She didn’t like to think about what might happen next. Even if she knew there was nothing to fear. Even if he already told her.
This is amazing, Lacey!!
Meryl says what we all want to say
