Everything is as You Believe

Five almost identically dressed, pale young women walked past him. They wore long dresses made of velvet, each dress as dark as night, one each of dark green, dark chocolate, royal blue, dark blood, and pure black. Each woman had black hair and wore silver jewelry; each was perfectly coifed, perfectly made up. They moved silently: Richard was only aware of a swish of heavy velvet as they went past, a swish that sounded almost like a sigh.

Looking at you for the first time that spring, I never thought you’d be the one to teach me love. I remember we grew daffodils in my backyard but we harvested something greater than that, love. It was love. It was beautiful and it made the darkest corners of my room disappear. It made my heart beat again, sometimes not too steadily but it beat anyway and it was all for you.
