The Quartz Lilly It had been 53 years since the first of the shooting stars had landed on Earth. Many of the strange flower beings had begun to populate the planet, the strange thing is that they were all of the female gender.  As more of the flower beings came out of the star rocks, more earth men emerged from the mountains, as if called by the song of a siren. As the two groups met, one being all females, the other being all males; the two groups started to bond with each other, to pair up with one another, as if they were meant to be. This is the story of one earth man, who never found his flower bride. The was once a man, who roamed the Earth, much as another had done over 50 years ago. His name was Quartz. He was fair skinned, his hair was a multitude of colors. As the light his it in different places, the more the color changed.  All of his comrades had already found their flower brides, and had started families. Quartz was the only one without a flower bride. He searched and searched, but could not find her. He felt no pull, no tug, as all the others had to find their other half. He wonders to himself, \"Why? Why have I not found her yet? Why do I not feel the string that connects me to her?\"  He continues his search, but cannot find her. One night, he stops by a town to get supplies and to rest, for his travels have left him weary and hungry. As he lays in bed, he feels it, he feels the tug he had been longing for for so many years. He jumps out if the cot, grabs his gear, and runs out into the night.  •••• But he will regret it •••• He runs, relying only on the pull, the tug to guide him, running full speed, not caring what comes his way. He feels that he is close to the source, when it vanishes. He searches, looking for the source. He yells into the nigh, \"WHERE ARE YOU!\" Hoping that she'll answer him back, but he hears no reply.  The strength leaves his body, he falls to the ground. He knows nothing. •••• He is awoken by a man, with hair black as onyx with stripes of grey, and a woman standing next to him, her hair is pink, but shot through with streaks of grey. The man says to Quartz, \"What the hell are you doing laying there on the floor? You'll catch a cold.\" The man reaches a hand towards Quartz, \"My names Onyx, and this is my wife Rose. Now what the hell are you doing here?\" Onyx say's as he helps lift Quartz up to his feet. \"I've been looking for my flower bride, I felt her here, but then it vanished. My name is Quartz. Will you help me look for her?\" Quartz said, the worry and fear thick in his voice.  Onyx's eye's widen, then sadness fills them, \" I'm sorry Quartz, I don't know how to tell you this, but a few years ago, there was a horrible accident. One of the star rocks fell, and landed at the edge of the mountain. Before she could emerge from the star rock, the mountain crumbled underneath her. She fell, I along with my son helped to retrieve her body. I'm sorry Quartz.\" Onyx finishes. Tears fill Quartz eye's as the realization comes to him. His soulmate, his life partner; was gone.  He falls to his knee's as a cry of pure anguish and horror escapes his lungs. Onyx and Rose drop to their knee's as well to help the poor creature. They take him to their home, lay him onto the bed, he sleeps for five days, dead to everything around him. On the sixth day, he rises from the bed. He walks into the kitchen. \"Onyx, may I see her grave?\" Quartz asks the old man. Onyx nods his head, and walks the boy to the fallen stars grave. The boy falls to his knee's in front of her grave, and weeps. He ask Onyx, \"What did she look like old man?\" \"Her skin was fair and pale, her hair the color of fire, we could not name her, for that right only belongs to her other half. What shall you name her?\" Onyx ask the young man. \"Lilly, I shall name her Lilly.\" Quartz says, then relaxes, the life leaving his body.  Onyx buries Quartz next to Lilly, marks her head stone with her name, and does the same for Quartz. A few days later, a Lilly flower blooms in-between the two graves, the petals are clear as quartz.  The end
