The greatest thing.
There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he
And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
I remember the day when I found my love. Found is probably the wrong word for it, more like realized it. Maybe I had been in love for long already but I just hadn't seen it.
I remember him sitting on the bed watching me with his beautiful eyes.
The sun ha started to rise in the horizon through the window. I couldn't believe that we had been up all night. We had talked about everything.
I sat down on the bed in front of him. He let his gaze fall to the bed to avoid mine for some reason. It felt weird seeing him there so shy and somehow sad when I knew that he wasn't like that. It was like the sun had made him draw back in his shell again.
Gently I touched his soft cheek hoping that it would make him look at me. It didn't, his gaze stayed down.
”Please, Shin, look at me.”
I could see him biting his lip. It hurt to see him there, so breakable.
”It's just me here. No one else. Nothing has changed exept for the sun.”
For the first time he looked at me again and in my mind I screamed from happiness. I could see some fear in his eyes.
Shinya took a deep breath and looked deep in my eyes.
”I don't want the day to start. I don't want you to leave. I don't want this night to be over.”
I put my arms around him and pulled him closer to me. I felt his arms around me and his cheek against mine.
”I'll stay with you for as long as you want. We have the day free.”
He pulled away from my embrace to look at me. A small smile made its way to his lips. I smiled to him.
”That's what I wanted to see.”
He laughed a bit.
For awhile we didn't do anything, we just sat there and looked into each others eyes. No words were needed there. Softly I kissed his lips. No long kiss, a small one, a trying one. I pulled away and looked at him. Shinya had his eyes closed and it seemed like he hadn't minded the kiss at all. I could feel his hand behind my neck and he pulled me back to a deeper kiss. Full of desire. Hunger. Love.
I answered the kiss with the same hunger.
We kept going until we both needed air not to pass out. Both of us clinged to each other like we needed each other to stay on the surface, even though neither of us were drowning.
”Don't ever leave me.”
I kissed him softly once more and whispered in his ear.
”I wont. I promise.”

Is just to Love and be Loved in return"
