The Sunset


He faced the waves as the sun began it's slow decent into the sea.  The sky was awash with shades of pink and red mixed with black and purple as the orange sphere lowered.  The soft wind whipped around him and gently kissed his face. His dark hair glistened as the last rays of the sun caught the salt sprinkled within. The grasses behind him whispered as they danced in the breeze.  His senses were heightened as he waited.  Nervous anticipation.

She closed the door of the house and padded barefoot across the deck stopping to touch her fingertips to the weather worn wooden railing.  She raised her eyes to the sky smiling.  Her long blond hair swirled in the wind. She saw him standing on the beach with his back to her.  His hands were in the pockets of his jeans and his form was a strong silhouette against the ocean.  She shivered and smiled.

Finally they will come face to face. She slowly walked down the stairs and stepped into the sand.  She smiled as she made her way across the beach.

He felt her presence before he could even hear her.  The excitement welled up within him. The moment which he had imagined and played over and over in his mind for an eternity was about to take place.  Her footfalls became evident as she moved closer, the sand swishing underneath her steps.

She came up behind him and wrapped her arms around him, and the gossamer fabric of her long dress tickled his legs.  He closed his eyes and she melted into him.  His heart beating quickly he turned around and looked into her eyes, took in the curves of her face and settled on her lips.

The last of the sun lowered into the horizon.  Night fell.  The long wait was over.

The new journey began...
