Rhythm of Living

Change was good.

At least that was what Danny told himself as he picked up his luggage and moved to the security checkpoint.

Change meant new opportunities, meeting new people and learning new things. But somehow for Danny it feel like that. It felt like a huge wall had just been erected in front of him and he was right on collision course. And with every step he took through the arrival area, he felt like he was getting closer to the final crash.

He had his work, but he didn’t had his friends and somehow his future looked bleak, no matter how bright the sun was shining outside the airport doors. The only ray of hope was his daughter.

Because Danny was sure that he could live without his friends, without his colleagues – or even seasons – but he couldn’t live without Grace.

While the decision to move to Hawaii had been easy, actually moving across the whole country hadn’t been. Doubt had plagued him and more than once Danny had to tell himself that he was doing the right thing; that it really was the only choice he had.

He was scared and worried and he already hated this sun-flooded, pineapple-loving state, but in the end he would do anything for Grace.

So change had to be good.

The End

It's been a while since I've read much about Danny :) But this fic makes me remember why I love him so much. Because ultimately, Danny's always been about Grace. It's what makes him Danny and you show how much he'll endure for that here.

Nice work!

(And Danny's change was definitely good. I trust yours will be too!)

That's what I like so much about Danny too, his unfailing love and loyalty. And his willingness to do everything for his daughter.

Thanks a lot

(I'll keep my fingers crossed for that :))
