He drapes an arm possessively around her slim shoulders, pulling her in close to himself. A deep sigh escapes her, as she gazes at the stars in blissful joy. Each shines, a pinprick point of light, high above reach, a gilded sphere of polished moonstone, casting their delicate glow upon the darkened world below.
As if reminded of some thought or other by the stars’ benevolent radiance, she shivers, thanking the heavens for her fortune.
“Shall we go in?” His voice breaks in upon her musings, its tender care silencing any darker feelings.
She smiles, shaking her head, her eyes now fixed on a closer star. “It’s fine. It’s nice out here.”
He laughs, inexplicably, caught in her tender mood, as he draws her again towards him, her cheek resting on his chest. “Yes, it's a fine night.”Without warning, as if obeying some ancient instinct, they turned towards each other, their bodies caught up in a loving dance, their spotlight the glow of a million stars.
