His arms wrapped around mine are the sweetest
memories that I hold in my head. The shape of his lips and the
curve of his smile, all these features that are his, make me want
him even more. The way the moonlight bounces off his silvery
white hair and the glow in his grey eyes are so perfectly
mesmerizing beautiful. His loud booming laugh that is full of
carefree years of childhood ring on every note. Everything that I
see is what makes up my Max. An angel from hell.
We love each other and that is for sure. No
bond in this universe could break us, but only make us. We are
the twins in the stars, so perfectly matched.
It's under these stars that he takes me under
now. He puts on slow music to fill the silent air and he wraps
his muscular hands around my hips. We sway silently with his lips
against my neck. Kissing it so very tenderly. I close my eyes and
only listen to our breathing.
We were made to be and that's no doubt. It's
like we are two puzzle pieces meant to click together to finish
My night is complete and all we do is dance
until we fall to the ground on our blanket. We murmur secrets in
each other's ear and giggle. I start to fall asleep when I hear
him say his final secret, "I love you." My night is so perfect.
His arms wrapped inside mine are the sweetest memories that I
hold, and I'll never let them go.
We drive in his car to meet his parents. He is carefree and
laughs his wonderful laugh, but I am nervous. He kisses me and
tells me that I will be fine. He declares that I am all he has
ever wanted in life and the I am perfect. He would still date me
even if his parents didn't approve.
We reached his house with its bright blue painted walls and a
fire going giving it a cabin feel. I starred at it as Max got out
of the car and came up behind me, wrapping his arms around my
waist. "Don't worry," he whispers and then slings me over his
shoulder as I laugh hysterically. We come into his house that
The dinner was wonderful and I feel like I fit right into his
family. His father was funny and his mother was sweet. Yes, I got
along just fine. Later his mother pulled me aside and became
completely serious. "I love my son with all my heart and if you
hurt him in any way I will make sure you wished you never meet
him." I was scared and in shock, but I took her seriously and
"Mrs. Finter, I would never hurt the angel that came into my
life." She smiled at me and kissed me on the forehead.
I drove us to my house because he feel asleep. When I reach
my house I turned off the engine and looked at his dreaming face.
After a while, I took a blanket from the back and wrapped us in
it, falling asleep with him in his car. I fell asleep with the
silent rhythm of his heartbeat as my lullaby.
He arrives at my door looking as handsome as ever. He wears a
black and blue suit that matches him completely. He combed his
hair in a way that took my breath away, but what got me was his
eyes. An almost silvery grey tonight, like diamonds but more
I touched his chest very delicately to make sure that this wasn't
a dream. He laughed at me and rubbed his hand against my check
while kissing me. Sweet and bitter was this kiss and it sent me
into a slight daze. Still overwhelmed, he took me too his car and
we drove to a restaurant with music so sweet, I cried when I
We hardly ate, but only talked about life and how our day. He was
graduating from high school soon and I was just entering. We
talked for hours before we left and when we got outside again, it
was bitch black. But our night wasn't over yet. He took me to the
theater's were watched a romantic movie, of course I cried.
Then we went to a fair where he won a prize and gave it to me. We
were both laughing and merry all the way back. But when we had to
separate, it became silent. He walked me to my doorstep were he
handed me a rose and kissed my hand. Then he left without a word
and I was alone outside with chirping crickets. His car pulled
out of the driveway and drove off. I sighed and went inside.
~Year 1 & Day 14
I awoke and found myself on a plane. I was confused and dazed but
calmed down when I saw Max starring at me with love twinkling in
his eyes. I blushed and kissed his shoulder. My memory slowly
came back to me.
I was now Mrs. Finter and we were going to Paris, France for our
honeymoon. The replay of our wedding was playing on in my head as
I was handed my breakfast by the flight attendant. I ate slowly
letting all this newfound information sink into my mind.
"How is Mrs. Finter?" said Max with a smile wide on his face from
the sentence. I only nodded my head and smiled at him. He smiled
back and kissed me on the forehead. "Eat," he commanded "we are
almost there." A few hours later, we were in the most beautiful
place on Earth. My breathe was taken away and Max only added to
My day seemed to slip away as me and Max went to our glamorous
hotel and started our sightseeing. Then at night we filled the
darkness with each other. Loving as passionately and probably
more than any couple in this universe. Love filled my inner being
and I became peaceful. I was were I was meant to be.
The rest of our honeymoon consisted of sightseeing and then at
night, each other. After a few days we go back to America and on
the plan he tells me: "I will never leave you."
"I won't leave you either. I promise that Max with all of my
heart." So began our journey on a road that we were both willing
to travel, just as long as we had each other.
~Year 2 and Month 8
I woke up and looked on my cell phone. There were three messages.
One was from Max saying that he was going to the store to get me
something special. The second message was also from Max saying he
was on his way home. I didn't listen to the third.
I went into the living and turned on the news. I watched for a
few minutes and then a clip saying there was our house and I knew
Max would be taking that road on his way back so I called him. No
one answered, but I thought nothing of it because he never
answers his phone when he is driving.
"There is only one death reported so far. We will keep you
updated…" said a reporter and it a clip showed someone in a blue
shirt being put in an ambulance. They had cuts all over them, but
looking closely I noticed roses everywhere. I called Max again. I
heard a cell phone ringing in the scene as well as mine. They
were in synch with each other. Mine rang, it rang. A man walked
over to the boday and reached into the bodies pocket and took our
a cell phone.
My line finally reached its caller. "Hello?" a man said on my
phone and in the TV. I didn't speak. The shot moved into the dead
body and only then did I recognize the blood stained white hair.
"Max." I whispered and my phone dropped from my hand. Then I
heard a beep from my phone and the third message, the final
message, played. "I love you," and then it ended.
~Year 3 Month 9 Day 14
I walk on the dewy grass of the cemetery. The wind blew lightly
on my face and I could smell the scent of freshly cut grass. My
gown whips with the spirit of the wind. I finally reach the
grave. A tear runs down my cheek and then I fall apart.
"YOUR LEFT ME… MAX I NEED YOU!" I sob uncontrollably and I fall
unto the ground. I cry for what feels like an eternity but I
eventually calm myself down. I placed a rose onto the gravestone.
"It's from your son and I. You missed his first birthday. I wish
you were here to see him. He is just as beautiful as you are." I
gasped with breathe to control myself and continued. "I'm not
breaking my promise Max, I'm never going to leave you. Neither is
Dylan. Yeah, I named him after your dog. I love you Max."
I got up from the grass and walked away. Though I walked away
from my one true love, I will never leave him. I visit him once a
week with Dylan and once a month by myself. The wind seemed to
hug around and I closed my eyes pretending at least for a second
that Max was hugging me good bye on my doorstep one last time.
