Amidst an empty sky, beyond the clouds and any moon, two celestial beings glimmered in majestic beauty. To the naked eye, though none could see, the golden sunlight bounced off every thousand sequins embedded in the skin of the sleeker of the two as it rotated childishly upon its axis. Contrasted to near invisibility beside this feminine beauty, the other appeared completely still. Though the light of the nearest star reached both their surfaces, the second seemed to absorb it nearly entirely. Its outline was lost against the black infinity beyond, but its skin was pierced in a million places by an internal light. As they grew slowly closer, the darker beast extended a stiff arm towards the golden gown of its companion as if inviting her to dance. Without a moment's hesitation, the fair lady roamed within reach of her mate and clasped firmly to the outstretched hand, dragging him into her spin.

No warmth was exchanged.
