“She was the girl who made everyone smile and he was the guy who made everyone laugh and together they were a perfect fit. “
He looked at her in a way that all girls would want to be looked at, that heart-warming glance which could touch every string of one’s soul… and now, he was touching hers. The connection between them was undeniable and unreal, just like a fairytale coming to life. The intensity was overwhelming and yet… undefinable. It was powerful and gentle, sensitive and tough, hard and soft: a perfect combination of opposites only in one look. They got lost for a while in this grand feeling called love.
In response, her cherry lips curved up, creating a work of art captured in only one smile. Her long, black hair was a little bit curled and the smile he had just seen made her even more appealing. She was so close enough to perfection that he felt it in every inch of his body… just like an arrow which becomes buried deeper than your heart, into the very core of your being, into your infinite soul. Luckily, he knew that beauty was temporary and that it fades in time… but it didn’t matter right then and there. He didn’t love her for something as temporary as her physical appearance, he loved her for who she truly was: the girl who completely understood him. The girl who opened up his heart. The girl who taught him in a better way what love is all about. He loved her for being human and flawed. He loved her unconditionally in spite of her imperfections. He would have been a fool to love something as passing as her looks. It was something else entirely that kept him drawn to her: the spark of who she truly was when she was with him. The way she behaved, the way she made him better. It was the diamond of her soul, which also shaped his.
That’s why he moved forward slowly, paying attention to each step he took, but at the same time keeping the connection between their eyes alive and burning bright. When he reached her, the space between them vanished and he carefully placed one hand on the small of her back while with the other one he interlaced his fingers with hers. In that instant moment, he felt a rush through his body and he knew that he gave her the best of him: his heart.
They started swaying on the rhythms of waltz and the love between them moved freely. They swayed and swayed and swayed on the sound of music, feeling like the dance would last as long as their love would: forever.
