Feelings Returned

As Ara lay next to me, I smiled to myself. Ever though he didn't love me in return, I was happy just laying by his side. I saw him smile. I raised an eyebrow curiously. This was a proper smile, a soft smile. He looked at me, and whispered, "I need to tell you something." I looked over at him quizzically. He leaned closer, and kissed my forehead. "I love you." He said, so quietly that I could barely hear him.

My eyes opened wide, and I touched my hand to his cheek. In his pocket, something moved around. It was the Eternal Love heart I had given him. It split into two, and threaded itself onto two pieces of leather. The white half tied itself around my neck, and in silver letters, was 'Ara'. On the black half, which tied itself round Ara's neck, in silver writing, it said 'Flamara'. I smiled, and kissed Ara's cheek.

The End
