They'd been walking along the beach all night, losing interest in time and place, because the beach has become only a foundation for the world they're walking through, the world they created for themselves. In this world, the sky is a limitless void of infinite possibility. It pleads for their eyes to watch its eternity unfold for them, and only them. She leaps onto his back, and he clasps onto her automatically. She knows without a doubt he wouldn't let her fall, and just thinking about it causes the smile on her face to glow even brighter. They laugh in unison, in combined elation, as the planet beneath his feet gives way to a feeling of unsurpassed comfort. Her touch brings tears to his eyes as she clings to him with a palpable, undeniable sense of trust.
Hours feel like seconds, and her heart beat begins to increase as he slowly comes to a halt. She's concerned, is he about to say something? Is there something wrong?? They were having such a pleasant walk, maybe he was getting tired and it was time for her piggy-back ride to come to an end?? She is almost stricken by disappointment, when his voice brings her back to the world they had created for themselves. "Let's... take a break, shall we?"
He slowly kneels down and lets her feet touch ground, the cool sand giving a soft tingle to her toes as she catches her balance. He quickly pulls his trench coat out from under his knees and leans backwards, resting his entire frame on the shore. Her expression is blank for a second, then the warmth returns to her face with an ecstatic grin. "Okay!" She drops down quickly and lays next to him, turning her head to stare and giggle as he wraps his arm around her shoulders and pulls her close. His touch is so gratifying and warm... Her laughter dies down as she is overcome with the feeling, the unrelenting compassion she holds for the man laying before her. His eyes are closed, he looks so peaceful... Should she disturb him, or just lay silent and absorb the moment with him? The affection in her heart, the very place her dreams are conceived, is bringing her dream to life as she watches him inhale the soothing ocean air.
She leans in, unable to control herself, and wishes to meet his lips with her own, creating a memory: an eternal kiss. Her motives are abruptly interrupted but a sudden intruder. Something cold and moist has landed on her cheek. A drop of rain? Yes, Rain! Is the sky weeping for their love to finally become one, or are the angels crying in elation for such a perfect pair of souls to finally come together? The man laying on the shore next to her doesn't even open his eyes as the rain begins to increase, and drops begin to sprinkle across his face. His mouth opens and he begins drinking in the drops that land on his tongue. She can't help but laugh, amused and at no loss of affection. She jumps to her feet with an iron grip on his arm, jerking him up and dragging him closer to the shore with her.
"Let's dance!" She exclaims with a joyous pitch. She clings onto his hand with her own, and does a twirl underneath his arm, drawing ever closer to him with a mischievous grin marked across her lovely face. "But... I don't dance,... You know that!"
She pauses, gives him a menacing look, and pokes her tongue out at him. "Well then Serge... You better learn!" She twirls back under his arm in reverse and begins dancing around him, their hands still locked together. "Come on! Dance with me!" she exclaims as she prances around him laughing innocently. He struggles to keep up with her steps, and finally kicks off his shoes and makes a subtle attempt. "I guess it wouldn't hurt to try." He says to her, all the while losing himself in her beautiful eyes. Eyes, full of joy and amusement, eyes he could gaze upon for all eternity...
Still lost in the world they gave birth too in their hearts. Not lost, but found, now that they have found each other, they need nothing more. They could find nothing more, this was the pinnacle, this was the beauty of romance coming to life. This is their world, and theirs alone. They danced for nearly an hour, laughing and occasionally cutting in with a cute, yet seemingly sarcastic remark about the others dancing abilities. Finally, Serge yearned for something new to pass the time, and lifted his dance partner up high. She wasn't sure if he was trying to pull off a fancy dance move, or hold her high where he felt she'd belonged. He held her in the air for what seemed like forever, he could not take his eyes off the angel that was staring down upon him. She was beyond beautiful, more than gorgeous, she wasn't an angel... She puts angels to shame.
"Well?" She asks, her voice bringing his senses back into focus. Stunned that he had lost himself so quickly in her beauty, he laughs ominously and begins spinning her around, letting her arms drop and wrap around his shoulders. They spin farther into the beach, spiraling toward the waters. Her feet are finally close enough to touch ground, but they splash into the ocean. They both lose balance with one another, and topple over into the waves.
Submerged. Her entire body was thrust under the current crashing into the shore, she looks around for her love but can only see pitch underneath the ocean surface. She breaks surface and glances around anxiously. Serge is nowhere in sight. She screams out to the man that she loves, but there is no response, one moment they were dancing and having the best time of their lives, the next is an overwhelming rush of worry and fright.
Arising from the waters like a stealth predator, He wraps his arms around the frightened girl and lifts her up again, backwards and wailing in shock. They tumble yet again at the undetermined shift of the waves, this time the water is too shallow to get lost in however. She yelps in a stunned, intensely frustrated tone. "You... you...---" "---scared you? Hehe."
The momentary anger is dead. She can't be angry with him, these are the most precious moments of her life. She treasures him with every ounce of her heart, unknowing that this entire night has been mutual, that his love for her could only equal, if not surpass the love she held toward him. They both smile for several seconds, lost in each others eyes... Then... It happens, they kiss becomes a reality. Unsure who had leaned in first, to which information was completely irrelevant. In this world, there is only them, no one else; nothing else. This world they had created on this night was a product of their love for one another, and with this kiss, their love become one, one with the stars... one with the universe... one with them. They were now one, and their world world would now exist for all of eternity.
