(If you would like, please listen to this song as you read: www.youtube.com/user/okanokumo… It helps set the peaceful atmosphere I was attempting to portray in the text.)
If the birds soaring though in the tangerine sky looked directly below them, they would find me resting on the edge of a cliff with my feet dangling off the edge. They'd sing my lover and I a melody which neither of us understand, but enjoy none the less. Waves crash below us, but I promised to keep him safe. Nothing bad would happen as long as we were together. The summer breeze kisses my face while the last remaining rays of sunlight reach out to me, casting a soothing, golden glow. "Promise you won't let it hurt me?" The person sitting next to me asks, peering down at the ocean below with fear written across is face. My partner is very different from I, yet in an oddly captivating and beautiful way. His erratic behavior always keeps me on my toes, but maybe that's what I like about us. Everyday is a new beginning and a new love for us to share. "Yes darling." I say, keeping my voice as silky smooth as his jade skin. "I promise." He squeezes my hand slightly, making me smile at the way his abnormal fingers fit perfectly in between my own. The grass tickles my hand while he hardly feels it through his gloves. The gloves he refuses to ever remove. "I love you Zim." Now it's his turn to smile as he moves closer to me. I gladly cuddle him. "I love you too." My fiance sighs dreamily. My eyes fall on to the glimmering ring he wears, the one I gave him only months ago. A powder pink blush rises to my cheeks at the thought of us finally being married. It's been exactly eight years since we both accepted our feelings towards one another, and now I couldn't wait to make our love official at last. I sigh a content sigh as we both gaze at the sunset, simply enjoying the company of each other. "Dib?" I look to Zim once more. "Will...Will we be together forever?" He asks in a bashful tone, one I rarely hear him use. I show him a warm grin and delicately introduce our lips for the thousandth time before echoing the words, "Forever."
