The music, the ocean, the house, they all disappeared. There was only his arm around me and the red pillow. There was nothing to say. I turned towards him and we kissed. It was a beautiful passionate kiss with our arms embracing each other.
We weren't letting go, not yet. This moment, this very special moment, I want this moment forever. I held Steven even tighter and kissed him again. This time I couldn't stop the tears. They ran down my face and it felt as though they were sealing our kiss.
All my years of sadness, all those wasted years, years that had no special moments, they were all released, they just drifted away. It was Steven, our embrace, our sealed kiss and a very special red pillow that filled my heart with one of the most beautiful moments of my life. This guy, this wonderful person was stealing my heart and I loved every moment of it.
We were still hugging, Steven spoke softly, "I loved listening to you talk last night". "I remember almost every word". He reached out to touch my face and wipe away my last couple of tears. "Michael, I couldn't wait to see you again."
I looked into his beautiful eyes. "Thank you, thank you so much." "You're so sweet, I love the pillow." "I love everything about what you did for me". "Steven, I'm so glad I'm here with you."
The music, the ocean, the house, they were all back again, and so was his cute smile. He took hold of my hand. "Come on, let me me show you what I really love about this house".
