He placed his hand on the small of her back and gently pulled her to him. Their lips found each other without hesitation and for that moment they became one. It wasn’t a kiss of hello or good-bye, just a kiss that would last forever. Because as they parted, she knew they would never see each other again.
The past three days brought back times they once had shared. They formed new memories that she would always carry in her heart. And most of all they brought the end. It finally ended. Nine years of wondering, hoping, wishing, and praying, was finally over. She could move on and know that this was exactly how their story was supposed to end.
It was his persistence that she conceded to, but only in the interest of dinner. As time went on, their love affair grew, but was hindered by her indecision. She did not want to let go of her past, because it held her future. So as she held on, he moved on. He moved not to betray her, but his orders were given and The Major followed. Their love remained unspoken and they went their separate ways.
There was never a good-bye, but nine years later, there was a hello. And for three days they reunited. For without these three days, there would be no love story. For it was her fairy tale to find that he sought her for all these years, when all the while she had prayed for his return. Their loved soared for just those few days. They recommitted to a relationship they never had defined and allowed their hearts to be restored. But again, their romance was hindered with indecision. He was committed to his present, and she to her future. Again they went their separate ways.
But theirs was a love story that was rarely lived. Even in the longest of marriages, the happiest of homes, or the most romantic rendezvous, nothing could touch their love. Because they did not have to be together to share forever.
