She lay in his arms, for the first time ever, and wondered how she looked through his eyes.
He held her in his arms and thought ,"How could a fool be so lucky?"
As they stared into the others eyes, their breath mingling softly, the Gods on high looked down and smiled.
It was a good match, years in the making. Both of them had to suffer the trials and tribulations Fate had set upon them. Both had conquered fears, hardships, lies, betrayal, and heartache. But this had strengthened their resolves, tempered their passions, and taught them what life was all about.
She sought his eyes with hers and said not a word.
He gazed upon her, flaws and all, and sighed.
And within that first kiss...
Within that first kiss was surrender.
