The calm before the storm

I know how it sounds. Like something out of a love story that could never happen in real life. I don’t expect you to understand, I didn’t until I felt it for myself. But I knew then that my life had only just begun. I was in love with a man I’d known for the best part of one minute. We got on right from the start. There was no moment of silence, awkwardness or doubt. There was no feeling inside my stomach telling me I was making a mistake. It was pure bliss. It was like I was missing a piece of my puzzle and he was it. We fit, perfectly. And I loved it.

The next four days passed in a blur. I spent every single possible moment with Edward. I held his hand just so I could feel his warmth. I smiled at him just so I could see his smile. I looked into his eyes, just to count the colours. We never stayed in one place for long, exploring the whole of the ship. As much as we could. He was as eager as I to take in the masterpiece we were so lucky to experience. Much to my Mothers disgust. But I couldn’t have been happier.

The End
