Chapter Text

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

Christian was always good at keeping his heart away from being broken, but when he met you, he found himself keeping his eyes wide open, having to keep watch on his heart, but he couldn’t help it anymore, he had to make you his, he had to be yours. 

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you
Because you’re mine, I walk the line 

He was true to his feelings for you, never wandering to someone else, even though he found himself in his bed alone more often than not; he was a fool for you, so head over heels that he even tried to be close to you despite the fact that you were almost constantly pulled away from him; but, he had soon had enough, and one day, while he was out with you, grabbing morning coffee and sharing a cigarette, he dared to ask you something that he thought he would never have the courage to. 

“(Y/N), would you wanna go out with me, sometime?”

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right
Because you’re mine, I walk the line

Lighting up a cigarette, you hummed, you had to admit, he was attractive, and he was kind and respectful and funny and charming, as you thought it over, you found yourself thinking of all of the times you had caught yourself daydreaming about him; you nodded. “Yeah, I would.”

The happiness that washed over Christian when those three words processed in his head was something to behold; it was like his chest swelled due to his beating, pounding, drumming heart, his breath hitched in his throat as he tried to speak, but he couldn’t muster up any words, just a grin, a beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, sublime, grin. 

You’ve got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can’t hide
For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide
Because you’re mine, I walk the line 

The date with Christian was soon set, and very quietly, he had asked if he could hold your hand while the two of you walked back to the film set, which you very eagerly agreed to; neither of you could stop smiling, full of giddiness at the thought of a relationship with one another, full of love that shined through your eyes when you looked at each other. You would turn the tide for one another, because at the end of the day, you belonged to each other. 

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you’re mine, I walk the line 

It turned out that Christian wasn’t as good at keeping his heart to himself as he had once thought, at least not when it came to you, for not even his eyes could contain the sheen of joy when he looked down at you with a fond smile; but, in a way, he was thankful for it, especially when he leaned down to whisper three words into your ear that had you biting your lip. 

“You are mine.”
