Charlie pulled her close to his chest as their arms completed the journey from separation to unity. He gently explained everything that had happened. Then, softly pressing his lips to hers, he felt the very thing that kept him alive all these past months: her kiss. She tasted like everything sweet and delicious in life.
Lillie caressed his face with her fingers. “Charlie, look. The fire thorns are touching."
He looked deeply into her eyes and their lips met once again. “Yes, together, my darling. Forever we will be together in our garden of two.”
