~A new beginning~
With his head in her lap, it was tipped to the side. Her voice filtering through as she whispered in his ear. The kiss of an angel, had granted each protection, though they were dark creatures by rights. Slowly, Virgo’s eyes opened, those same ones that had watched over Elvira for so long. The wolf that loved his mate without question, and faithfully, acting only to protect her whenever he thought she was in danger. This love had transcended the boundaries of what was viewed as good and evil. He reached up with his hand, and gently stroked her cheek, seeing her looking tearful, yet happy.
“You couldn’t let me go on alone, my Love. Your love brought me back.” He tried to sit up, but it was an effort. Successfully, he did and then as he pushed up off the ground, he extended his hand to hers. Love filling his eyes, as he said.
“Does this mean we are still getting married?”
He then drew her up into his arms, and kissed her with all the love she had given him.
“You couldn’t let me go on alone, my Love. Your love brought me back.”
“Where you go, I follow…even unto death.” she smiled through her tears. “But, love, we have a very long life ahead of us and I plan on living it to the fullest…by your side.”
With some effort, he managed to get to his feet and took a moment to steady himself. Only then did he turn to her, hand held out and love shining in his eyes. She took his hand and allowed him to help her to her feet.
“Does this mean we are still getting married?” he asked with a cheeky grin. She tossed back her head and laughed through her tears, throwing her arms around his neck, careful of his returning strength.
He pulled her close and kissed her, returning that which had saved his very soul. As the two stood along the bank of the stream, a bright beam of sunlight broke through the clouds over their head, illuminating the soulmates in its warm light.
Truly a blessing from Above on two dark creatures who had found love in the darkest of times.
