"Okay, " He said. "You're a woman now, right – completely?"

She nodded.

"Fair enough. I can live with that."

She nodded, barely able to speak now. Something inside her just made him want to reach out and hold her, to comfort her. He couldn't possibly imagine that she had ever been anything other than the beautiful creature he was seeing before him now. Regardless of the past, what she had become was what he saw.

"Is it all right if I hold you?" He asked softly. She nodded. "You won't kick my ass or anything?"

She nodded again. A little breeze moved wisps of her hair as he took another step towards her.

"You sure?" He asked. "It's hard to be taken seriously as a bounty hunter round here if you have a black eye and bits of wadding sticking out your nose."

She nodded again, giving the world a sad little smile. He reached out. She felt the warm, comforting feeling of his arms around her. It did help. Something deep down inside her knew it.

She sighed. He was right on the money. She turned her head to give him an appreciative look.

"Damn, you're good. All this and brains too. What more could a girl ask for?"

"I dunno…" He grinned at her. "Money?"

"Nah… wealth is over-rated." She quipped. "Possessions own you."

He smiled at her, running his fingers through her hair. He could see where this was going. They both could.
